Scammer?Page 1 of 1    
I think I may have hooked a scammer. Just a bit too classic. Widower, one child, born overseas, claims to live near me, flattery (lets face it, I'm really not that gorgeous). Has anybody come across this guy from Bowen Hills in Brisbane? Don't want to name as I don't know, but he sounds a little too good to be true. Is he?

Possibly, but he could also be a great catch. Nothing you have stated screams out scammer to me at this stage. A bit of flattery on a dating site isn't exactly unheard of.

If he ever asks for money or something like that you'll know for sure. Until then, he's as likely to be a scammer as anyone else, so keep your wits about you and play it safe.

Just ask to meet him some time very soon (ie this weekend). They usually start making excuses at that point. (of coures, if he is genuine, you have to be ready to meet him lol).

I did some private investigating. I copied his profile into Google, and lo and behold, there it was word for word used by at least 15 to 20 others identified as scammers. Rats! It all looked so good too!

Unfortunately that is not uncommon.
