HOW TO IDENTIFY SCAMMERS
In 95% of cases a spammer / scammer wants to lead you away to another messenger where everything is ready for scamming (scripts, photos etc.).
The most typical spam and scam cases you may come across on any dating site
- Photos with textual elements on them. For instance, an invitation to contact via another messenger.
- Fake photos from the web (quotations, cartoons) + the profile owner from India, the USA, Russia = 100% scammer.
- People asking for money for various emergency reasons.
- Webcam girls and escorts asking for pre-payment.
- Profiles of the American soldiers or UN peacekeeping forces who collect money for charity.
- Online fortune tellers (Ghana, Russia).

Check the addressee’s email - Hitwe Support uses in-house domain and email - [email protected]
