I can’t lie reading this headline made me laugh way too much. This 100% seems like something that would happen in Las Vegas. You see someone, ask them for their number, and next thing you do that person cashapp’d themselves $1000.
What an all time move!
VladTV has the story;
One recently took to social media to speak on the woes of trying to find new people to date and connect with, as she described a horror story surrounding her sister exchanging phone numbers with a new guy.
The woman said, “Don’t give no guy y’all phone to put they number in.” She continued saying, “Because this guy just cashapp’d himself a thousand dollars of my sister’s money. [He] took one my sister’s phone, [acted] like he was putting his number in, and took a whole thousand dollars. So y’all blow his stuff up and tell him to send my sister her money back.”
The criminals who carry out romance scams are experts at what they do and will seem genuine, caring, and believable. Con artists are present on most dating and social media sites.
The scammer’s intention is to establish a relationship as quickly as possible, endear himself to the victim, and gain trust. Scammers may propose marriage and make plans to meet in person, but that will never happen. Eventually, they will ask for money.
Scam artists often say they are in the building and construction industry and are engaged in projects outside the U.S. That makes it easier to avoid meeting in person—and more plausible when they ask for money for a medical emergency or unexpected legal fee.
If someone you meet online needs your bank account information to deposit money, they are most likely using your account to carry out other theft and fraud schemes.
I’m not pro scammer by anyway but this is hilarious and a move that I never thought someone would do.
