While the reports of these types of scams are out there (even with copy and paste examples of the e-mails used), people still fall for the scams every day.
A few hours later, I received back an incredibly long, detailed e-mail with a few photos attached.
The e-mail was not well written, and the local geographic locations mentioned in it did not make sense in description.
At this point, I was 100% sure it was a scam and decided to reverse image search the photos, which lead me to a model out of Australia, and then searched the a generic line of text to find over 78,000 results showing almost exact copies of the e-mail I had received.
A quick reply back lead to an even longer response from the scammer, again using photos from the model’s profile page and the same content found on many scam reporting websites.
At this point, I had what I needed for this write-up, and so I marked the account as ‘spam’ and reported the profile to the e Harmony team. Here are a few tips for you to help spot a potential scammer: Remember, you will never know who is on the other side of that screen until you meet them.
Use safe and cautious measures, never give out personal information, and be aware of the tricks being used on the digital daters of today.
