Skype dating scams
What you share with a scammer becomes public domain, even if it is private – because the other party has to agree to maintain the privacy. Im lucky when “she” asked for my facebook info I said i ont use it.Ive deactivated my account and got a google alert on my name incase something appears.Scammers will often try to lure potential victims in by posting photos of beautiful people in their profile.If the person refuses to have a video chat with you, then it’s possible that they look nothing like their profile photo.Eventually, they may ask you to join a Skype (video) call with them.Scammers may use carefully prepared webcam images or footage of themselves which may initially seem flattering, but can increasingly become coercive and explicit.
Like anything else people will find a way to abuse a good thing.
Once the scammer has his video, he can never stop them from posting anywhere they want – why?
Because he has no right of privacy, and he doesn’t own the copyright. Had the same added to skype and a video chat next thing im getting a phone call from a man in Morrocco saying unless i send £400 via western union he will post my Video.
She contacted me through the dating site Plenty of Fish.
I used the skype app on my phone so I still have all of our text messages including one from me stating Second, there is NOTHING that he can do about it.
