The scammers transfer stolen money into the new account, and then tell their victims to wire the money out of the country.
Victims think they’re just helping out their soulmate, never realizing they’re aiding and abetting a crime. She's not sure if the man she is talking to is real... Her story is almost same as yours, she has sent him a lot of money already, mostly for his daughter who is going to boarding school in Africa (or something like that) she also sent her money for a birthday party.
Here are some warning signs that an online love interest might be a fake. he says he has no family just the family of deceased wife who is supposedly caring for girl while he is working overseas for an oil company as an engineer.
They ask you to: Did you know you can do an image search of your love interest’s photo in your favorite search engine? When you say SA do you mean San Antonio or something else?
If you do an image search and the person’s photo appears under several different names, you’re probably dealing with a scammer. Because this man states that he lives in houston but hasnt been home for a while.
