Romancescam.com


Romancescam.com is a data base of known scammers. The main purpose of this list is to protect the members of the online community, as well as other people who use online dating services, from fraud and scam, to inform them about the horrible situation with scams in the online dating world, to put them on alert if a scammer contacts them and to prevent them from contacting scammers themselves.

Here are the rules that this list is based on:

For Nigerian scams

1) The ones that have been reported by actual victims, or potential victims, i.e. whom they tried to scam unsuccessfully.

2) Those listed on Yahoo group Romancescams. I love this group, I am a member of it, and encourage all of you to join. I trust the group and great folks over there unconditionally, if somebody is listed on this group as a scammer, I know he or she IS a scammer, no doubt for me.

3) Those whom I personally booted off my dating service for the following reasons:

registering with the West African IP addresses (specifically, from the following countries: Nigeria, Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, Senegal, Sierra Leone or Guinea Bissau), PLUS:

a) listing themselves as being from any other non-African country, like USA, Canada, UK, Australia, Germany, Spain, Philippines, etc..

b) uploading photos that are obviously not their own, i.e. of white, Hispanic or Asian people, or African-American models.

c) mass-mailing all members on the site with the same standard pre-written message without even looking at the profiles: just going down the list of members and hitting that "private message" button.

For Russian scams

1) The ones that have been reported by actual victims, or potential victims, whom they tried to scam unsuccessfully.
2) Those who tried to register on my dating service and whom I've seen already listed on other Russian scam lists on the Internet.
3) Those whom I personally booted off my dating service for the following reasons:

a) placing profiles through anonymous open proxies or from the most scam famous part of Russia, where operates the known Russian scam gang, which is Republic of Mari El, PLUS:
b) listing themselves as being from any other city of Russia, including Kazan and Cheboksary, or from any other country, like Ukraine, Belarus, or sometimes even US or UK.
c) mass-mailing all US and UK men on the site with the same standard pre-written message without even looking at the profiles: just going down the list of members and hitting that "private message" button.
d) placing more than one profile with different pictures and names from the same IP address.

These patterns of behaviour, based on experinece of a dating webmaster, are ALWAYS 100% indication of scam. Visit www.romancescam.com Here are some of the scammers at www.romancescam.com/album
