Presently, men have turned out to be unpredictable and slippery when it comes to relationships, and with the arrival of money first then love later, most men find it taxing to engage themselves in love affairs.
With this in mind, most women try to look for alternative methods of slipping into the well-protected wallets of stingy men. According to a survey, it has been founded that social media users particularly women have been finding clever ways of getting money by tempting unsuspecting men into their traps.
Flooding of Social media such as Twitter, WhatsApp, Facebook, Badoo and Skype into the market has assisted most women to con unsuspecting men huge amounts of cash as well as cleaning their victim’s bank accounts.
According to Clance Ruhamba, a Dar es Salaam lawyer;
The women take advantage of men’s weakness, which is a beautiful woman requesting for friendship in any social media site, though after you are hooked up they begin asking for money. After you give them the money, they stop communicating and prey on other victims for the same thing.
“Imagine one woman receiving money from two men daily, it means that it has turned out to be a profitable business,” Ruhamba added.
Jason Amir, a victim who was conned KES 500,000 (GHC21,000) stated;
“Make sure that you do not believe what anyone tells you online. These scammers do not care what they do to get money or how much it costs you; the only thing they believe is that if you are stupid enough to fall into their trap then you deserve it. So do not let this happen to you.”
These women come in many disguises and some will even agree to meet their “new love” personally though eventually if you are clever you will realize that they are only after your cash.
It would take time before the practice could be halted since most men are married and so fear to tell anyone. Additionally, the scammers have continued to get away with their behavior because it has become a challenge finding their identity.
