Find hookups on skype

Adhrann's guide says that scammers should "look on the Internet for a bunch of pics of a cute girl" and select someone who is "not a top model, but a normal sexy girl." To find photos, scammers can buy sets of photographs of young women, often through shady forums frequented by hackers.

Up until now, scammers were instructed to turn down any requests for a Skype call, but if the target insists, then they should ask him to pay for a webcam.

Scammers are told to use a female partner for the video call part of the process, but there are guidelines on what they should look like: If a scammer is successful here, and managed to con the target out of money for a webcam, or other small amounts, then they may attempt the riskiest part of the process, known as the "pause." Scammers are instructed to stage an altercation over webcam, and then cease contact.

Step two in the dating scam guide deals with "developing a virtual relationship." Scammers are told to ask lots of questions about their targets, paying particular attention to their past relationships.

They are then instructed to take the information learned, and then create the "perfect woman" for the target.

Performing a Google image search for an account's profile picture will show you where on the internet the image appears — sometimes you'll see it attached to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts with various different names.

That's a sure sign that the account is fake, as the photo must have been circulating on the internet.

Potential scammers are also advised to use virtual private networks and proxy services, both of which can help hide the scammer's real IP address and location in case law enforcement get involved.

So how do you know if someone is trying to scam you?

Dating sites are, thankfully, getting better at spotting who is using their service to send thousands of spam messages.
