Maria may or may not be 37, but one thing I am sure of is that she (or he) is a “romance scammer”.  If you make the mistake of corresponding with Maria, sooner or later you will find that you are being asked to send money.  She will need air fares paid, or her grandma will be sick or……………

Read the Romance Scams page of this site to see how these scammers operate.  They are skilful and will spend weeks/months corresponding with you and making you believe that they are real, genuine and they love you.  It’s all rubbish.  The only thing they love is the thought of your money.

If you are interested in online dating, join a reputable online dating site such as Dating Direct and KEEP YOUR WITS ABOUT YOU.  There are lots of scammers about, even on legitimate dating sites.  NEVER send money to anyone you meet on a dating site – however legitimate they might sound.  Demands for money are an alarm bell warning you of a scammer.
