"She" becomes extremely eager to meet in person, so she decides to find out what her options are as far as visas and travel fare.The scammer will announce the good news (that she found out how to obtain the visa) in one of the letters shortly after explaining her undying love.
Therefore a standard set of romantic letters exists, and the scammer typically uses these pre-written letters to correspond with all potential victims.As a results of using the sets of pre-written letters, scammers tend to ignore questions posted to them, or when they do answer questions, they answer them only at the very beginning or at the very end of each letter.If the guy agrees, the "lady" pretends to put all effort into making "her" travel arrangements. " She" acts surprised to find out that there are various expensive requirements that " she" has to comply with before she can fly out of the country.Those supposed requirements usually include proof of financial independence and requirement to pay off all loans that "she" has in her name.The longer the set up phase, the higher is the scammer's probability of success in obtaining the money.
Once the fact that the scammer is "deeply in love" is well established, the scammer begins the real preparation.And so " she" will reluctantly ask for financial help again.If the guy is determined to make her supposed trip happen regardless of the expenses, he sends the money again and again.In the money keep coming, the "lady" will continue to experience difficulties."She" will get robbed or attacked, may become injured or sick, may suddenly get arrested, or her apartment may get flooded or burned.Some scammers offer to pay for visa themselves (as a "good faith" gesture).
