The Nigerian dating scams are often not easy to detect as the scammers are often highly educated, have exceptional patience and they do their homework!They also lurk in chat rooms and social networking sites as well as Christian and other religious-based dating sites.They then spend months chatting up and luring their naive targets with online intimacy.Often the scammers use attractive female photo profiles because lots of men will respond to an attractive woman's personal ad based on the photo alone.They also tend to target middle-aged people looking for stable relationships.Some of the sophisticated scammers send cheap presents such as flowers or candy [from stolen credit cards] to capture the hearts of lonely women.
