95% of the time fake profiles are for female members so this article will only focus on female traits. I will also try to cover some of the actual cons you should look out for.
The fake female is most likely to be a man in Africa. Nigeria and Ghana are two countries that are world leading in cyber crime. They often use Blackberry phones so their IP address range is part of the Blackberry network. They have teams of men that join any type of free social networking site and use it to contact its members. In the past they will have used email, but social networks will generate a much better response rate. They write scripts (hacks) to try and automate message sending. They don’t have the time to contact members 1 by 1. They want to contact 1000s at a time. The next stage is they want to get you out of the social network and into email or a chat system. Most likely it will be Yahoo as it’s easier to hack Yahoo emails than Google Mail.
The men then wait for incoming emails or incoming chats and then the scam will begin. But before I look at the scams let’s go back to how they get you out of the social networks.
Contact details in the profile
This is the most common method as they hope you will send them an email without any effort on their behalf. If you see chat or email contact details in a profile then hit the report button. No exceptions! Saucydates.com is 100% free so there is no reason to use email and give away your personal information.
Contact details in the first message
If the first message you get after the canned messages are lifted includes contact details then you should be on your guard. Once again, the site is free so very few females are going to part with their private email address in the first few minutes of knowing you, no matter how hot you think you are.
I’m too busy to check my messages
If you get a message asking you to email directly with a reason for being too busy to get on the site then report them. It takes no more effort to use Saucydates then it does to login into Gmail or Yahoo Mail.
Email me and I will send some pictures
If you are asked to email to get some pictures then also take care. If you have been swapping a lot of messages then this is okay but if it’s the first message you get then report them.
In general if the female member is trying to get you to email or chat out side of Saucydates.com then they are likely to be a MAN! If you doubt any of this advice so far then please test it. Make contact out of the site at then leave a comment about what happened next.
The actual scams
There are a couple of main scams that these men try and pull off and they will all involve you sending money.
I have 1 million pounds and I need your help
I’m not going to waste a lot of time on this one. If someone says they have a lot of money and they need your help then tell them to “F##K OFF”. I know if I had a few million then I would hire a finance expert to help me out, not someone I met online.
The honey trap girl
This type of scam is the most likely from a dating site. The man will pretend to be a woman interested in meeting you. They may swap 100s of messages with you but there will be some reason why they cannot meet you. The most likely is they are in another country (usually Africa) and they will need some money for a visa and plane ticket. They will extract a small amount of money at first and then come up with more reasons why they need more money. But they will never visit you as they are a man, so please don’t forget that.
If any member of Saucydates.com asks you for money then firstly, don’t send them any and secondly, report them. If we all work together and report these people then the Saucy Dates Trust system will delete them automatically. Over time they will give up and move to another site. When you report one of these scammers feel free to send them a message and tell them they have just been reported.
Be on your guard and hopefully you found this article helpful, it’s valid for any online dating site you use, even paid ones, as they will use stolen credits cards to sign up. Please leave a comment and share you own views and experiences.
