Thai Love Links Scams - How to Avoid A Thai Dating Scam

Thanks for dropping by my website!Looking for a Thai bride? Join Thai Kisses and meet thousands of ladies tonight!

Thai Love Links is one of the most popular Asian dating sites available. It's particularly popular with Western men looking for Thai wives. Although the site is generally well managed, all online dating sites can be dangerous places due to the numerous scammers operating on them. Here's some information about three typical scams that you might encounter while using Thai Love Links.

Small Time Dating Site Scams

Many dating scams are operated by Thai ladies themselves. These scammers roam the many Thai dating websites like Thai Love Links in order to look for victims. The scammers are fairly common on sites like Thai Love Links. The small time scammers particularly like Thai Love Links because they can sign up for the site for free. Unlike other dating sites, free members can actually contact the paid members on the site. This means it's possible to start up a scam operation without paying a subscription for a site (always dodgy, since a scamming account will be closed by the dating site as soon as they notice anything untoward happening).

Thai dating site scammers typically chat to men in order to get them to send them gifts and small amounts of money.

Although the scam ladies working Thai Love Links and other dating sites often only get a few dollars here and there, remember that $10 is quite lot of money in Thailand. And many Thai women are ruthlessly efficient at what they do - it's not unusual for a woman to be chatting to dozens of men - all those $10 gifts will then really start to add up. Thai ladies are particularly experienced at running dating site scams. Many of the ladies are involved in Thailand's entertainment industry, so they are expert at knowing how to extract money from men.

Men usually work out (eventually!) that these ladies are not suitable wives, so they move on and look for a more suitable Thai lady. Actually, that's what should happen! In practice, we men get attached to our ladies we chat to, so it can be hard to move on, even when we have a very good idea we're getting scammed.

You'll have to use your own judgement, but if you start sending cash to a Thai lady on a regular basis, you're probably going to regret it later.

Short Term Girlfriends

Thai dating culture is fairly complex, and there are all kinds of different girlfriends that a man can find in Thailand. Just remember this when you're looking for a wife. It's best to avoid anyone who isn't marriage minded. Obviously many men do prefer more casual relationships. The main thing to avoid is ladies who say they want marriage, but who are really looking for a short term relationship. Some Thai dating sites only have marriage minded girls, whereas on Thai Love Links there are ladies looking for all kinds of different relationships, from penpals to boyfriends to husbands.

If you're marriage minded then it's usually better to go to an introduction agency like Thai Professional. An introduction agency is normally careful to screen out and ladies who aren't marriage minded.

Camwhores

Porn is big business online. However, companies involved in adult entertainment have discovered that the Internet is the life and death of their business. The companies are losing millions of dollars a year because most Internet savvy guys download their movies instead of buying them or renting them from a video store. There is also a large network of underground sites where people make and upload their own movies, so thereby cutting out all the professionals who make money from the business.

However, this is a business that isn't afraid to innovate. One new way companies have found of making large amounts of cash is to operate live video chatrooms. For a few dollars you can have a 1 on 1 webcam session with a sexy lady of your choosing. Needless to say, Asian ladies are particularly popular.

How does this relate to dating? Well many Asian webcam ladies will try and drum up business, and a great place to find men is in dating sites. So just be careful if a lady suggests a sexy webcam session. This is hazardous for two reasons. Firstly you might be tempted to view her assets on an expensive pay per view chat site. The other issue is that camwhore ladies don't necessarily make good wives, so if you suspect that she's into this, then be wary. Not all of these ladies are to be avoided though, some women just love the attention and the confidence it brings them.

African Dating Site Scams

Although ladies from Asia and other countries like Russia have got a bad reputation for being online dating scammers, this is often unfair. Many of the dating scams actually operate out of West African countries, so the ladies doing the scamming are:

  • Not either Asian or Russian.
  • In many cases they aren't even female.
  • The profiles of the ladies are usually fake, relying on false information and convincing looking photos stolen from Google Images, or other sites.

The African internet scam business is bigger than you might think. In some towns and villages in Nigeria and Ghana it is the main source of income for the local population. Formerly the most popular way to scam people over the Internet was the 419 advance fee fraud (where you have to send $100 someone to get your hands on $1,000,000). However, the scammers are now starting to get more interested in dating sites as a place to scam people.

Sites like Thai Love Links are very popular with African scammers, so be on your guard. Scammers love the Cupid Media dating sites like Thai Love Links because:

  • If you sign up and post a photo of a beautiful Thai girl in a bikini, her profile will attract a lot of interest from men.
  • Scammers can sign up for a free membership of Thai Love Links, and unlike many other Asian dating sites you can contact the paid members even if you're a free member.
  • Sites like Thai Love Links have so many members that controlling scammers is virtually impossible as they can sign up faster than the site can remove them.
  • In many cases it takes a scam to take place for a scammer to be identified and removed from a website.
  • Many men looking for Thai brides are older and hence more wealthy than the average dating site member.
  • Lonely people looking for love are considered easy prey for a scammer.

Thankfully it's possible to avoid the African scammers with a bit of careful planning. Before getting too involved with a woman, make sure you verify which country she's living in. Obviously one option is to stay away from any woman claiming to be working overseas (particularly in developing African countries). They may pretend to be aid workers, or nurses.

As to avoiding these scammers, before getting too involved with anyone you meet on the site, you should insist on seeing her on webcam in order to verify that she actually exists. Ignore this advice at your peril - many victims of African dating site scammers were scammed by fake profiles of men and women who didn't actually exist. In the very worst cases reported, the victims lost most of their life savings to the scammers, so take this as a warning! Many victims are often too ashamed to admit to the scam, so it can be assumed that reported dating site frauds are only the tip of the iceberg.

Green Card or Visa Scams

In terms of emotional turmoil, the green card or visa scam is the most dangerous type of Asian dating scam. Marry one of these ladies and your life will be torn apart. It's also much harder to spot than money based scams. Visa scams are operated by ladies who want to leave their country and move to a Western country. One of the best ways of doing this if you're a sexy woman is to marry a man!

Once in your country, your new bride may disappear, or move in with someone she's previously met, or trade you in for a younger fitter man, or get up to any number of other schemes.

This type of scammer takes time to spot, so always take your time with a relationship with anyone you meet on Thai Love Links. The easiest way to avoid these types of scams is to go and live in Thailand. Thailand is an increasingly popular retirement destination. If you move there you will also have your pick of the available Thai ladies, and you will find it much easier to keep your eye on her in order to make sure she's an honest lady.

Needless to say, be wary of buying a lady a house back in Thailand - she's likely to disappear back home and have a great time living in the property you've just bought for her!

So if you're thinking of registering for Thai Love Links or any of the other Thai dating sites out there, then always be on the alert for scams.
