Unfortunately the chances of your getting the money back are very slim indeed. Many sites do filter of course, but they can't spot all scammers. Usually the scammers will conduct their business having lured you away from the site and onto regular email or instant messaging.
The reasons for needing the money will sound plausible and reasonable. Do not be separated from your money - you'll never see it again, and you'll never see the person you sent it to.
Here are some tell-tale signs that you've been approached by a scammer: Bear in mind that any of these characteristics can apply to genuine online dating site members as well, so just because one or two of these tell-tale signs is present doesn't necessarily mean you're being scammed - but be on your guard.
I had sex with OVER 50-women 3-4 times a week for 2-8 months AVERAGE relationship time in 15 years just by going on there and paying the $49.95 I think it is for 3-4 months membership. 8-month relationships and each we had sex 3-4 times per week if not more.
They give it up MORE than a website where you just ask for it in your profile.
This scam is also known as AFF or Advanced Fee Fraud, and it comes in many shapes and sizes.
