The first dating scammers on the Internet acted quite primitively. They simply showed the nicest photos of themselves or even of other people, made their penpals fall in love, promised the heaven on Earth, and then asked for the money – mostly to buy the tickets and come to their beloved’s country. Some were more imaginative and asked for some investments in a future family business etc. There were always fifty/fifty men and women scammers. One male scammer from Arizona got 15 years in a prison for his one-million worth fraud.
