Internet Scams

I’m sure we all know the danger behind internet scams, these people are getting even more resourceful in their effort to get our money and there are so many places where they will attempt to do it. Facebook of course has long been infested with scammers but Facebook has gone to strenuous efforts to clamp down on their activities. So now these criminals have turned to such unlikely places as LinkedIn and whatsApp to get the results they’re after bank details etc. However there is an even darker side to this dark industry.

As some will have found they use many kinds of bait to draw us in, offers of money from an African Millionaire, offers of sex from good looking women and that’s were I found the real dark side of what these slave traders are about. I’ve had attempts made on me regularly over the years, fortunately with my background I can spot one instantly, so on one particular occasion I thought it would be interesting to play along and pretend they’d hooked me, what I found was titillating and to be honest (I don’t mind being shown naked female bodies). But some of the lengths these women went to to demonstrate their ‘wares’ made me think surely they’re not doing all of this in their own free will.

So I continued to play along to get to the truth and what I discovered was sickening. Thousands of people women, men and children disappear every year, we read about a handful in the news some of these women for example end up in the modern sex slave trade being forced to perform all kinds of acts to make men in this case think ‘wow I’ll give this woman the money she needs for her passport or ticket to come and be with me’. Well it ain’t gonna happen. These women are slaves being held captive probably somewhere in Africa by certain black men who need to be exposed.

This carried on intermittently on WhatsApp for a long time but I kept up the charade “26/12/2019, 11:02 – Messages to this chat and calls are now secured with end-to-end encryption. Tap for more info.

The pictures sent were VERY revealing all deleted now but sad that these women in this case were exploited in this way, it’s clear from the grammar that the person doing the talking isn’t Shelly who may or may not be in Ghana.

So what can we do? What did I do? Well first of all report the post to whichever organisation you’re using Facebook, LinkedIn, WhatsApp whatever then broadcast as far and wide as you can to get the message across, this could have happened to someone you know who’s disappeared. The truth is out there, beware of the half truth (you may have got the wrong half). Most people will turn a blind eye (but in the world of the blind the one eyed man is king. Take care out there it really can be dangerous.
