The majority of these scams are out of Russia and Ukraine, with some out of the former Soviet Union (FSU) countries.

Nigeria, Ghana and the Philippines have recently jumped on the bandwagon.

Foreign profiles are more likely to be scams trying to part you from your money, especially Eastern European and Philippine profiles.

Nigerian advance-fee fraud has also been around for many years, but has lately been on the rise.

Red flags leading up to the money request should also be taken into consideration.

"Be aware of classified buyers and sellers especially anyone offering a cashiers check over the asking price and requesting you send the extra funds to Nigeria or another country.

Ensure you are positive the buyer or seller is who they say they are."Scams in the internet dating world are rampant.

Scammer will often send an official looking email that appears to come from Disabled World, offering a guarantee, certifying a seller, providing payment services - all such emails are fakes! A person offers a genuine-looking (but fake) cashier's check you receive an email offering to buy your item sight unseen.

A cashier's check is offered for your sale item, as a deposit and the value of the cashier's check often far exceeds your item - scammer offers to "trust" you, and asks you to wire the balance via money transfer service.
