Don't let his smooth talk — and your desperation — cloud your judgment.
How can someone honestly love you before having met you in person? How can someone want to spend the rest of their life with you when he's known you less than a month? You're using a dating site to protect your privacy and help you avoid scammers. Also, if he is supposedly overseas on a trip, and he gives you his foreign number and says call any time, it is more likely his 7. Another indication that a scam may be going down is when there is a distance between where you both live.
Don't fall for whatever their reason is to write to him directly before meeting him in person. When you say you'll be in his area and would like to get together, he can't meet with you.
This is a great test: Ask to meet soon after the introduction on the Internet. Most people who earn a decent living wish to be wanted for who they are, not for their income.
If there are continual excuses, then you know that person doesn't really live where they say they do, and/or he isn't truly interested in you. Yet, scammers will often indicate that they make more than $150,000 a year in an attempt to set up the person who wants to know them for their income, and not for themselves. " Shortly after the introduction, the person asks about your financials as he's looking to find out what kind of person he is dealing.
(Note: I used male pronouns here, but scammers can be either gender and can present themselves however they wish online): 1. Thus, more people will respond and fit their requirements.
When making contact with you, scammers start by complementing you on your looks.Wouldn't we rather be complemented on accomplishments or what your goals are?

First off, I don't recommend calling an online suitor without having met him first. if your phone identifies the calling number, and you return the calls but the number is rarely answered or almost always goes to voicemail, you're probably dealing with a scammer.Some people can sound great on the phone, but when you meet them there is nothing there; or, physically they just don't meet your standards. The other part of the "I love you" scam is when he says something like, "Something in me shifted, and I love you," or, "I think I have found my soulmate." Again, he hasn't even met you, and there hasn't been enough time to know you well enough to truly love you in the way you wish to be loved. There is a reason scammers wish for you to contact them directly via private email and not use messaging available through the dating site. Him answering with questions to your specific questions is a sign of a scammer as he is not giving you an answer. Remember, there are a number of services where you can get a phone number with almost any prefix.This way, when he says he's gotten into a jam and requests money, the unsuspecting person thinks her investment or loan will actually get reimbursed. In other words, he is really wishing to find out if you are worth his time to scam, as you have financial resources to share.Think about your friendships—do they ask you about your financials? Ask him to send you a picture of himself via snail mail.Not many do, especially when you've not known each other for very long. When the exact same pictures show up that are on the Internet, it is an indication that the pictures may not really be of him, or why he send a different set of pictures?
