In addition to losing your money to someone who had no intention of ever visiting you, you may also have unknowingly taken part in a money laundering scheme by cashing phony checks and sending the money overseas and by shipping stolen merchandise (the forwarded package).In another recently reported dating extortion scam, victims usually met someone on an online dating site and then were asked to move the conversation to a particular social networking site, where the talk often turned intimate.I do not think you should turn a guy down simply because he makes less than you do.There are many things more important than his bank account — like his character. If the guy you start dating likes to play a lot and work occasionally (and has no problem with you footing the bill more than half of the time), this would end up in the “dating don’t” category for obvious reasons. or share your life with an amazing person who might not be as blessed as you are in the bank account arena? These criminals—who also troll social media sites and chat rooms in search of romantic victims—usually claim to be Americans traveling or working abroad. Their most common targets are women over 40, who are divorced, widowed, and/or disabled, but every age group and demographic is at risk. You’re contacted online by someone who appears interested in you.He or she may have a profile you can read or a picture that is e-mailed to you.
My initial reaction: it shouldn’t really matter who makes less or more, and if a woman happens to bring in a higher income than her partner, it shouldn’t get in the way of a developing relationship.Having a purse with no money in it is like being a firefighter that fights fires with a super soaker, you can’t get shit done. Broke girls are always looking for a Baller in the club.I’m sorry, but your broke ass is standing by the bar like an alcoholic Tiny Tim saying “Please sir, I want some more.” And, you expect a guy to be a financial powerhouse?[It’s like] the scene from Revenge of the Nerds, when Robert Carradine finally woos his beautiful blonde Betty in the moon bounce.He never would have had a chance with her otherwise.
