Did you receive an email from Europe or North America?
Well, scammers are unfortunately everywhere. In particular, many of them have migrated and formed communities elsewhere. And, as you can guess, there are a few rotten apples among the immigrants as well. In Europe, London, Amsterdam, and Madrid are favorite places for them to scam from.
In North America, Toronto, Houston, Texas, and Atlanta, Georgia have also become sites of large communities and some scammers as well.
In Europe there are also numerous Romance scammers, particularly in Russia and Eastern Europe (sometimes referred to as "Vlads"). These scammers are often men posing as women trying to find romance with foreigners.
If you get an email from one of these locations, you can almost bet it is a scam. Best thing to do? Hit "delete".
