How to make Love Safe for Travel

How to make Love Safe for Travel
Love and the search for love is one reason people travel.

Betrayal, lies, cheating and scams, the need for love is universal. I read an interesting post on HoboTraveler.com today, and it made me sad.

It is possible on this website, HoboTraveler.com to submit scams, below is a fraud reported, and way too common.

The numbers of people who travel from one end of the planet to the other is growing, and blame it on love, blame it on internet love.

Subject: Ghana Scams on Singles Websites

Comments:
I recently signed up for a month's membership on Singlesnet.com and yesterday I received an e-mail from jimaima45@singlesnet.com. There was no picture posted with her profile but as soon as I sent a response this picture of a gorgeous chick who rivals Jessica Alba in
appearance shows up on my screen. The profile said she was from Minnesota and was 43 although she looked much younger.

We exchanged a few e-mails and she then requested I go to Yahoo Instant Messenger where we could converse in real time. Her e-mail there was jimaima255@yahoo.com .

She confessed that she was actually from Ghana and that her father was German (she was Caucasian in appearance) and that she made a mistake in typing her age and she was actually 32, not 43. Plus she said she was a student while her Singles.net profile said she was in sales.

She tried to get my full name, home and cell phone but I wouldn-t
give it to her. I-m 57 and wasn-t born yesterday!

She spoke in broken English and also asked if I owned my own house. To me it became obvious she was setting me up.

So all you middle-aged baby boomer guys beware of gorgeous chicks!

P.S. I tried to add apostrophes but this software won-t let me.

OK
Hmm…

I am receiving daily a growing number of submissions about scams.

China products sold to people in the USA on the scam pages.
People offering jobs to people from India on the embassy pages
Love scams, love me, send me money, mostly staring from Nigeria, Ghana and other African countries.

There are hooks, questions, or replies made, they are sneaky and clever.

I think there is a need for certifications of companies. I think there needs to be a way to certify that a company exist, and has been in business for three or more years. The Better Business Bureau of the USA is somewhat dodgy, and I do not trust them. They came one times into my company in Indiana and more or less said, you join and we will make sure any reports are solved. I did not join.

I think the governments need to get more involved and have official contacts listed as registered companies. Example… saying, this is the official registered email or website of this company as reported to the USA government.
