"William" is probably not even based in a Western country and is yet another Nigerian scammer trying to dupe innocent people off their money.Scammers often use female profiles as well to fool their potential victim.It could be a scammer, often a man, using photos downloaded from the internet in the hope of sucking in as many victims as possible.

However much you send, you will never see the money again.Remember the golden rule - NEVER SEND MONEY TO ANYONE YOU MEET ONLINE.While most African singles looking for a date online are genuine, it cannot be denied that many online dating scams originate in African nations such as Nigeria, Ghana or Ivory Coast due to the low per capita income, high rates of unemployment, high rates of corruption and ineffective policing in these areas.Supposedly named after a defunct piece of Nigerian Law the 419 scam has been operating in various incarnations for years.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.You will then be requested to send a large amount of money for treatment and promises that you will be paid back ASAP.
