From internet cafes all over west African countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Senegal etc scammers are zeroing in on their prey - singles looking for love online. The Nigerians call them 'maghas' which is slang for gullible white people.Their money, credit card, and ID has been lost or stolen and they have been arrested and need to pay a lawyer so they will be allowed to leave the country. Travel scams (sometimes you will see then being referred to as Visa and Tickets scams) are the most widely used.The Nigerian dating scams are often not easy to detect as the scammers are often highly educated, have exceptional patience and they do their homework!The scammers start by stealing a photo from an internet site.

The main theme of the scam is that someone (be it a young women or a young men) contacts a potential victim on a dating site, quickly involves the potential victim into romantic online-relationship, and then asks the potential victim for financial assistance with arranging a person meeting.
