Cupid indonesian dating
We have changed (or not revealed) locations or other identifiable details, but these are actual cases to serve as examples.
In this case, the client contacted us to help him assist his girlfriend in Indonesia.
One wanted more photos to make sure I’m a real person and that I looked like my profile pic.
And, the girl I finally picked to be my girlfriend was not always available for chatting so I had to find a way to send emails she can receive the next time she logged in.
These scam artists have seemed to make it their intention to take money from online victims.
In this article, we will give a brief overview of some of the kinds of dating scams IPIA has come across, how to recognize them, and what to do if you think you are a victim of a dating scam.
Indonesia Private Investigation Agency (IPIA) and Bali Eye Private Investigation Agency are seeing more cases of dating cons in Indonesia.
Foreigners (especially men) and weak law enforcement are creating an environment in which scammers can operate with very little risk.
I joined the Indonesian Cupid dating site as a free member, and all was good for a month or so.
He told IPIA he had been chatting online with his girlfriend for a few years, but that she had traveled to a certain city in Indonesia (she did not speak Indonesian) and was now being held hostage by unknown people in this city.
She was able to get to the phone occasionally to quickly our client and ask for help, but was otherwise unreachable.
Their intention is to make the victim (him or her) through the dating process fall in love and then impose ever-increasing demands.
They may ask to pay a dowry to “parents”, buy them a house, help with hospital bills (for a mother for example), invest in a house for the girlfriend.
