Polish dating scams
Correspondingly, a scammer is that very bearded Boris who starts a quick Internet-affair and then asks for money.
Did you know that "recently the word" scam is understood in ex Soviet Union without the translation, and it has a specific meaning dating in the Internet for swindling money.
I decided to take a chance and pay for 6 months of the Polish Hearts service.
I'm Polish, and needless to say, it's not easy to meet Polish ladies in the US, since everyone is just so spread out, so I thought, what the heck, we'll see what happens. When you compare it to Match or E-Harmony, Polish Hearts is just in the stone ages.
b) People who are defrauded keep quiet about it out of their shame.
c) Sometimes, if they do report it, or talk about it, to friends, family, or even law enforcement, they are told they are "dumb" to fall for such a thing, and treated as the criminal themselves!
Most of the girls lived in Poland and the UK (which makes sense as the UK has a large Polish population).
Some were also spread out in other European countries like the Netherlands, which is also normal.
The person you may feel you "fell in love" with simply does not exist.
Within a few minutes I started getting "kisses" and smiley faces. My my excitement soon died down after I realized that all 3 were scammers. None of the women I contacted ever wrote me back, even though they showed "online" status, except for the numerous scammers that inundated me with roses and kisses. Before joining I noticed a lot of online women of all ages, from 18-55 .
One from Ghanna, and other claiming to be in the armed forces and overseas, even though they claimed they lived in my area. I think most of the profiles here are totally fake. It did seem like an active website where Polish girls are looking for relationships.
Note too, that although this has the name "Nigerian Scam", people perpetrating it are not necessarily in Nigeria. Or, they may be in western Europe, or the US or Canada. Other romance scams originated in Romania or Russia. In all fairness to the majority of people in or from Nigeria, the plurality of people in that country are decent, law-abiding citizens.
In no way is this construed to be a general dislike for any group of people anywhere. This scam continues because a) People don't suspect, and assume that cashier's checks and money orders are "as good as cash".
