The scammer continues the work to solidify their victim's love and trust.The requests then start for a victim to visit the scammer in their home country. The scammer will use this first visit to further solidify the relationship, so the victim "knows" this is real.
Romance scammers are in this for one purpose only . Because of the easy money made from victims, scammers are well-to-do respected business men/women who quit their "normal" day jobs. They have a script to follow, just like telemarketers. When they are gone from the computers for any amount of time they are either looking up information in order to answer you or are consulting with a more experienced member of their "team".
Internet cafes are shut down to normal business so scammers can do "their jobs". Most households in West Africa and other third world countries cannot afford them nor can they afford the cost of a monthly connection. They take time to respond to you because they are talking to other people.
Learn how these scams work so you can protect yourself. Run just like any "for profit" organization, there is a hierarchy and an organizational structure: the peons, the managers, the big bosses, the pimp daddies. There may be times when they have forgotten what you talked about before or call you a different name.
This is why they are always on the computer and at times it seems you are talking to different people.
Scammers send sweet words, poems, and love letters..stolen from sites on the internet.
