Zoosk.com – “Accidental” email invitations to steal money from people

This happened to a friend of mine. He was sent an invitation to join Zoosk.com and he thought that it was an accident, but joined anyway. After talking with this girl for a while, she then made up some story to get money from him to travel to see her grandma. She kept saying that it was important and they would meet soon and he almost sent the money.

Thank god we looked online and saw that there were several other stories of people getting scammed from these types of email invitations to random people. Well he told the person that he had been talking to that he was not going to be able to send the money, but he would still like to meet. He never heard from this person again. If one of these emails comes to you like this, I would stay away if I were you. There are a lot of better ways out there to meet people.

    The actual site is not really a scam. It is just people using it to scam people. Scammers look for people that are desperate to take advantage of. Who is more desperate than someone on a dating site? Easy pickings in their minds.

    Yes I concur. Zoosk is a legitimate dating site but there are scammers abusing the lonely. I was a member. Zoosk never took money from me that I had not authorised but I came across several women who had a sob story about their mother being sick or they needed money to come over to meet me. Never send anyone money no matter how in love you think you are.
