I just watched the Oprah show from the other day, and they did a really good job covering the topic. They told about a romance scam site (actually, it is one that I have been to before and have chatted with members from there over the years) and they mentioned how this site has a database of scammers names and you can search them. Here is the link if anyone is looking for it.
Now, if you search out that database and you do not find the name of the person you are in contact with, that does not mean that they are not a scammer . . . it could just mean that their name is not on the list yet. I would also suggest doing a google search of the scammer’s name, email address or phone number.
We will chat more about the Oprah show later.
