It definitely isn't just the old guys who fall for overseas relationship scams. It's a pretty reasonable bet that the number of guys who fall for this stuff would well outweigh the women given the listed gender distribution of bots and scam accounts (vast majority younger female profiles).

It's not just American women. European women are known for vacationing in east and west Africa for the purpose of finding younger 20-something men for sex and love. The men are in desperate situations financially and the women offer money and the chance of relocation to more prosperous nations. Both the men and women in these arrangements end up unsatisfied. The men are far from home, friends and family while struggling to find gainful employment. The women end up feeling like the men are just leeches and that the "love" wasn't mutual.

Women that fall for the scammers are usually the average Plain Jane's that didn't spend their entire teens and twenties fighting off muscular frat bros and silver fox investment bankers. It's one of the few times a younger, attractive, physically fit man has shown them interest while being so persistent. The ladies are likely involved in rocky marriages where their husbands aren't 'bad' guys per se, but both sides are definitely unhappy. I could understand (not condone) a situation where a well-to-do Nigerian bachelor flies over to the U.S., and has a fling with one of these kinds of women. She'd be scratching an itch, and he'd be doing the same. What I don't understand is flying to another country, leaving your husband and kid behind and committing to someone that you've never even held hands with before. Sex is sex, but these women want more than that and this is where the problems start.
