Stop communicating with him immediately. Avoid any arrangement with a stranger that asks for up-front payment via money order, wire transfer, international funds transfer, pre-loaded card or electronic currency, like Bitcoin.

Mark your involvement with a scammer as a mistake and keep a sharp eye out the next time.

They know if someone asks you for money, it is a scam. You might even be asked to accept money into your bank account and then transfer it to someone else.

If you agree to meet a prospective partner in person, tell family and friends where you are going. We have been texting since May. Scammers can use your information and pictures to create a fake identity or to target you with a scam. Ironically, he actually looks like a math teacher.

Your family and friends think you are crazy. They are scam artists preying on desperate women. He responded that he would rather forget about the phone than to lose me.
