Before long, you are in the greatest romance journey of your life. Once a trusting bond has been established, you are ripe for picking.This can take up to twelve months (talk of patience) and often there is promise of marriage. The scammer claims that his employer has been paying him in money orders or cashiers checks, which due to differences in banking systems he cannot cash in Nigeria (or other country).The goods are first shipped to you, and then you are asked to reship to the scammers chosen destination which is usually in Nigeria.Though most forms of communication are used, including email, Instant Messaging, and Chat, the scammer will shun live video chat. The excuse often is lack of the technology in Nigeria.They also use pictures of foreign models and celebrities not known in the target country.Photographs from other dating profiles have also been known to be used.
As a final point, just because it’s called Nigerian romance scam does not necessarily mean it’s done in or out of Nigeria.
It usually takes most banks anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks to clear a check or money order.
The scammer is counting on this, and by the time the con is exposed he/she has disappeared, leaving you to pay the bank and/or even face prosecution for participating in the fraud.
