The scam starts out as a provacative message recieved on a dating website. EX: MUAH... Hello cutie... or please talk to me on yahoo messenger!
Then the victim logs into yahoo messenger and messages the screen name given. The scammer has a macro (bot) that will respond to certain words. Making it seem like a real person is talking to you. Once the scammers bot recieves a message from the victim. The scam has begun. It will send messages like: "come see me naked on my website" or "I have a free website pass" The bot waits for a response and then sends the website and a login ID for the site. After sweet talking the victim with lame preset messages. The victim who has to be an idiot or doped up on drugs will bite. The victim is told he needs to give his cc/atm number for validation of age only. If the victim is not using his brain but something else he is screwed. Here is one of hundreds encounters I had with a scammer while I was intoxicated.
