I've had more than enough experience with REAL people and FAKE mugus (nigerian scammers) to be able to confidently say, REAL people do not show these signs. Telling your mugu that he/she is busted will accomplish absolutely nothing but teaching them how to be better at scamming/victimizing, as well as cause other victims unnecessary duress.
Unless this is what you hope to cause, do NOT confront them!
The scammers are using their images without their knowledge or permission to deceive their victims and steal their money.
The scammers are using their images without their knowledge and permission to deceive their victims and scam them out of money.1) they contact you, claiming to be from the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Western Europe 2) their English sucks, though they claim to be the native English speakers and they say "am" instead of "I am" 3) they give you their email or Yahoo ID in the first 1-2 messages and want to get off-site and chat on messenger 4) they are widowers, their wives died in the horrible car or plane crashes, they raise "a kid" alone, or (if they are females) they are recovering from a bad relationship with a cheating ex.
RESEARCH YOUR SCAMMER, FIND OUT WHO IS BEHIND THE EMAIL Of course it can´t hurt What you say might appear as "beaten to death" is brand-new and a terrifying experience for many out there right now.
(remember they just make those claims simply because that's what they think you want to hear and is appealing) 8.) They emphasize the obvious! 11.) They don't mind your age, gender, sexual preference, or anything about you. 13.) They typically try hard to get you to email them first, or get into web cam with them.
5.) Their IPS tend to be either nigerian or black hole proxies that are shared (often starting like 172.....) 6.) They are most always god fearing and christian, Catholic in particular.
AND they are most often in search of a god fearing mate.
