This happens to men too. More then a few men have gone on dates from somone they only spoken to online. They would be robbed or worse upon arrving to the meeting location. The internet often gives people a false sense of security, and for the lonely its easy to get roped in to a scam, or worse.

These two guys are real creeps, and they look it. That one guy made it a point to keep his face covered during photos. This spoke volumes about him.

This happens to a lot of men too. Many men fall prey to catfishing schemes.

Who said it was? Pointing out that it affects both genders and all orientations is not un-useful. Women may be more inherently vulnerable, but even the burliest construction worker can be stupid and end up on the wrong end of a robbery.

Perhaps you could change your web name to "Perropescado"?

Cool. This thread is about the woman in the OP's link.

I just don't get what she was thinking, going along with it all. When the guy turned out to be someone else, why stick around? And to follow him to the Phillipines? I guess the ideal of traveling peaked her interest.

Good that the 2 men were complete idiots, and got caught so quickly. Who takes a taxi to dump a body?
