This is a broad example of Russian online dating scams.
Here’s mine….” Confused, the victim usually asks what a verification code is and the scammer responds with a bogus link that usually includes “tinder” in the name to make it seem authentic.The scammer will have photos showing a young and attractive woman though her profile may say she’s from America or England.The scammer will later explain that she’s from Russia but couldn’t select it as an option on the dating site.Chatbot scammers just speed up the whole process, storing information about their victims and “inventing” all manner of chat-up lines to quickly hook their victims.
For those who don’t know Tinder, it works by flashing up photos of other users in your vicinity and then you can either approve them or not, according to your taste, simply by swiping right or left respectively.
It’s a clever trick because it plays on a major fear of users — the risk that the person they’re chatting with might be dangerous.
