If you are new to the whole Thai online dating scene then it’s imperative that you read this post and even if you’ve been around the block a few times with online dating sites like Thai Love Links and Thai Love Lines then you’ll recognise some of these scams. I’ve come across pretty much every scam there is and I’ve even used online dating sites to scam people in fact I used a dating site once in order to get a green card to America so I know first hand how the scams work.
The best dating scams online are the ones where you don’t even realise you’ve been scammed. The girls that run those scams are very crafty, experienced, have been doing it for years and will outwit you every single time. Most of the really good Thai online dating scams run by Thai girls have been coached by Farang who have taught them the trade or who in turn get a cut from the takings don’t believe then me read on.
Expensive dinner online dating Scam
This is not an obvious scam and one that is more often perpetrated by western women than Thai girls but Thai girls are known to do this too. If the girl isn’t into you she’ll still meet up with you and make you pay for dinner and drinks but leave you hanging. While you might like to wine and dine a girl and have a “real date” that’s awesome just don’t ever do that on the first date. Never ever let a Thai girl pick the place you’ll have dinner. The first date should always be had at a food court or something where you eat a cheap meal, second date a week later might be OK for something more expensive. I met a Thai girl once who told me all about her scam, her uncle owned a seafood restaurant in Bangkok and she would take guys there at lunch and dinner, the bills were always over 2000 baht and she would make 1000 baht a day and eat for free needless to say she told me this over a bowl of noodles which I made her pay for.
Money for the bus online dating scam
I’ve blogged about this scam before and yet guys are still falling for it. I’m pretty sure though this scam is perpetrated against Thai guys more than Farang guys but it’s still worth knowing. Let’s say you meet a girl off TLL and she lives in a different province let’s say Prae and you live in Bangkok. Well your not about to go running off to Prae now are you, so she’ll say she can come to you. Great when can you come you’ll ask. When you send her the money! You might think it’s all good you call her maybe even see her on MSN and great you feel comfortable yet your still not sure so you think your smart and you’ll buy her the ticket instead that way you know she is going to come. But for most of these northern provinces you can’t buy the ticket unless you are actually there so you end up sending her the money. Next thing you know she sends you an email telling you she is scared to go and wants her friend to come too, her friend is willing to have sex with you they are both 18. Wow two 18y/o Thai girls coming to stay with you, dreaming! So you send another 1000 baht and never hear from them again. More often than not the person responsible for the scam is not Thai at all it’s the Farang boyfriend of the girl using the scam to live here indefinitely, please don’t be a statistic and fall for this, no matter how legit she sounds and maybe she even is, don’t send the money! By the way this scam is not illegal in Thailand so even if you go to the police they can’t and won’t do anything.
Hard luck story online dating scam
If you have ever met more than 5 Thai girls you would have had at least heard the beginning of this scam. In fact it’s more common amongst bar girls than online but the online world is full of it too. A Thai girl you either contact or she contacts you and you start to talking. Typically within the first hour of talking to her you’ll know about how she has no job her parents work in the fields and her uncle is sick. It all sounds so sad doesn’t it and you believe it too because Thailand is a third world country. Hey everyone has problems in the world and I know just as many people in the USA with hard luck stories too but doesn’t mean I’m going to send them a few hundred dollars. I need money for school for Uni for this and for that I know giving money to the unfortunate feels good but your better off going to the Red Cross than giving anyone you met online money. I once had a guy send me 15,000 baht and a month later send me another 10,000 baht because I went onto Craigslist and posed as a Thai girl selling myself and this guy wanted to be the good Samaritan and send me to school. There is a sucker born every minute but whatever you do don’t send money to Thai girls online. You can’t even be sure they are getting the money as in this case I spent the money on paying my gym membership a few hookers and dinner for a month.
Personal details online dating scam
The personal details scam is only the beginning of the entire scam. What happens is typically the scammer will post a profile on TLL posing as a white Chick living in your area. She will within the first few emails ask for your email address so she can contact you outside of the dating site. Now the scammer has your email address you won’t hear from them again instead you’ll start getting spam mail and offers to other dating sites for which they will get a commission. In order to protect yourself from this don’t ever give out your email address there is no reason too unless say your using MSN to chat with the girls. If you use MSN to chat up Thai girls create a seperate account and gradually graduate them to your real account after you have met them.
Prostitute online dating scam
Most normal people use a Thai dating site to find Thai girls who are interested in a partner, while I might use the services of online dating sites to find girls to f*** I’m not looking to meet any pro’s I know plenty of places to find them. There is nothing else like a girl who is willing to give it up for free and be enthusiastic about it as well. Mechanical prostitutes roam online dating sites and convince themselves they are not prostitutes when in fact that are. Online Thai prostitutes who use dating sites are pretty clever and not as easy to spot online until you meet up with them but many times a few inquisitive questions can really go along way. The online prostitute may even be up front and request money for sex or she could be subtle and just see you and make you pay for everything while avoiding sex for any reason. When you do have sex with the girl it will be disappointing. If she doesn’t ask for money she will ask you to buy things for her, like if you ask her to come to the club with you you’ll say she has no dress or nothing to wear and you’ll be like oh i’ll buy you something. Don’t be a fool, every Thai girl has something to wear to the club.
How To Avoid Thailand Online Dating Site Scams
If you don’t want to be a statistic and want to avoid being stung by a Thai dating site scam then just by reading this article you will be better prepared. But here are some genuine tips to avoid being scammed and to avoid meeting Thai girls that are not dating material.
- Be prepared to block girls for the simplest of reasons, I don’t care how hot her picture is if it ain’t right it ain’t right, there are millions of these girls out there.
- As soon as the girl starts saying she wants this wants that dump her.
- If a Thai girl lives too far from you don’t waste your time talking to her
- If the girl says she wants to take you to a place to eat so no and take her some place super cheap.
- If a girl needs money to come to you, taxi, bus, plane say no, if you have to say no more than 2 times then block.
- If a girl asks for your email address give her your phone number and tell her to call instead.
- Don’t under any circumstances send money to a Thai girl you met online no matter how you met her online.
- If the girl asks for cab money or any type of money to go home walk away, I know this is hard for many soft cocks out there and you might even like the girl just don’t do it, if she really is a good girl and she likes you she is more likely to respect you that you didn’t give her any money.
