Have you ever met a person from a dating site online that tried to talk you into opening up a bank account or asked if they could send money to your bank account? I have had this happen to me like 3 times now. It makes me sort of mad. i am starting not to trust any of these dating sites online because of this.

Yes, i do met this guy from a dating site.And he is my recent boyfriend from Canada. He is older than me, and he's willing to be with me for lifetime.. And yes, he sends me money every month for me and for my baby's needs, and i think it's fine because he's the own who offered not me..And i dont take advantage because i dont want him to be mad at me..

I met once or twice and it makes me sad and less confident that there could really be good picks in dating sites. If there are any, then some other women may have gotten such a man right away and left the rest of us wht the not so pleasant ones. I just stay away from those men and I am also super cautious with whom I chat or talk with from those sites.

Hi there ...WOW I am truly sorry this is happening to you! I dont use these sites for I wouldnt trust them, Anything to do with money I would for sure stay away. This is not the 1st time or the 2nd but the 3rd time do a stike its out! Try to see if you can find something more local if you can or at least free. I again am sorry you had to go through that and I wish you all the best! Take care

Thats really rude to ask you, I would never get anyone I a bank account in my name. I met my fiance' online dating site. But I never asked him for anything like that, I dont even like asking him for money and we have been together for over 1 year! Some people are just crazy, I dont think anyone in the right mind would do that.

A lot of guys they say they have money but have nothing. Plus if the guy did claim he had money why did he want you to get an account for him? Kinda dumb if you ask me, he could have his mom or dad get an account for him, unless he already screwed them over. I bet he does that to a lot of the people he meets and then just runs off with the money or the bank account goes in the negagtives. He doesnt have money he is a scammer.

yeah that is what I figured I wasn't about to give him my bank account. I hope he doesn't do this to anyone else.

I have had someone befriend me from a community site, not a dating site. We started to talk on messenger, and for months nothing about money was talked about, until one day it was. When I told the person I could not help them out with any money the friendship surely fizzled out. I had a strong feeling this person was not just talking to me as a friend and there was a motive behind it all. I just kept up the friendship to see what the end result would be, and my feelings were correct.

That's good it's just sad that people do this to get money from other people this way.

yeah this happened here so many times. these people usually will say they have a large sum of money from some late ones,and then they want to find someone from some other country to withdraw the money. In order to get your money, you have to tell this person your account number. what will happen if you provide your account number? who knows, I have never tried,and I do not want to waste my time. From this site you may find some of these emails, Read them and judge by yourself. http://www.law148.com/reference/reference.htm
