do you have information about a Shirly Latem scamming men on internet dating sites or she could use the name Fatima Zibo and says she comes from Kasoa Ghana and is a hair dresser
Hi Welcome to JustAnswer. My first response will follow shortly. Please feel free to follow up if anything is not clear
I have not heard of this person, but it certainly sounds like the typical dating scam to me. the use of the different names and the location may be a hint. Internet dating is full of scams, and a clue is whether you are asked to send money, and then more money. More detail may confirm my view.
No has not asked for money and the name of Fatima Zibo she says is her mother and we have talk for a couple of weeks but some thing doesnt seem wright comes across as genuine and seems on the surface to be allright but not sure allso very atractive and has photos but i dont no?
I would be very careful. How do you know this person is the one in the photo? Sometimes these are genuine so I cannot be too cynical, but I am afarid that if your instinct is that this seems not right, then i would go with that.
There is a good scam site at http://www.consumeraffairs.govt.nz/scams/scam-types/dating-and-romance-scams
ok thanks so as long as i dont part with any cash. so how do they usually get money from people?
You may be asked to pay for her to come to NZ or you may be asked to go there, and then may be asked to pay more money to see her-there are many variations.
ok thanks for that
I have seen many scams but you need to see for yourself. I am very cynical having seen too many people burned, but look at the website and perhaps ask some direct questions. I may be wrong.
