African online dating site

The basic idea is that you're contacted by someone who has access to large sums of money and wishes to move them through your bank account.

Of course millions of people have flown across countries and continents to find the loves of their life but it's important to keep personal safety in mind.

Some scammers claim to be North American, European or Australian citizens working in an African nation such as Ghana, Nigeria or based in Lagos.

They then solicit you for money for a charity they run in Nigeria or Ghana.

Again, they pretend to be a woman from a Western country while all the while being based in Nigeria.

The story goes that they are paid in money orders but are having trouble cashing them; could you please cash the orders and wire the money to Nigeria?

If the victim agrees they will receive money orders that have been bought for a small fee, such as $20, and doctored to read hundreds or thousands of dollars.

However much you send, you will never see the money again.
