So, in this section, you’ll find strange online dating Today, you’re going to learn what to look for if you think you’re being taken advantage of by a scammer, to put it lightly. If you believe you are being scammed, stop all communications To avoid online dating scams, be on the lookout for these four red flags when you’re getting to know someone online: 1. Romance scammers profess love quickly, without actually meeting If your friend is in love with a Moroccan man, whats the problem. Maybe they should wait for 6 months to see if it still lasts and feelings are the same. Maybe in time the young man will get a Dating itself in Morocco, between Moroccans themselves and between Moroccans and foreigners can feel (and be a reality for a good chunk of people) taboo. There are so many ... read more
Believe me when I say this: I really feel bad about what happened to you and feel really really sorry for you! One thing that actually chocked me in your story is that he waited 7 years before he showed his true colors.
A woman has to be desperate I hope I'm not offending you because I'm saying this to actually hook up with somebody online, somebody that lives millions of miles away. This does not put the blame on you in anyways, but it only proves that we have to get to know people well before we get emotionally involved.
Anyway, please accept my apologies for what your husband did to you, and trust me when I say not all Moroccan men are the same: There is the good, the bad and the ugly. I guess your ex falls on the ugly part. Its been a while since we've had a juicy topic like this Rosesarered, based on your conclusions about Moroccan men, you probably shouldn't trust this Moroccan man "friend" that's telling you to beware of Moroccan men. He's probably be doing the very same thing that all Moroccan men who "befriend" older American women are doing, he's just trying to snag a visa.
my thoughts to you Rosesarered is to cut your losses and stop trusting ANY Moroccan man that would be "friends" with a non-virgin, over age 30, American woman -including your current Moroccan man friend who's so kindly warning you about Moroccan men.
Using older people to get to the US is more common than anyone here wants to admit. If it goes against the cultural norm the chances are even higher than the USC is being used for a quick pass to the US. From high fraud countries it is easy for the beneficiary to behave like a butt and make the marriage worthless. Many have their next spouse waiting to join them through the whole process.
If you keep your ears to the ground you will find at least 10 countries where more than half of the marriages dissolve before 5 years are over or just after in states where to lessor spouse gets a more favorable settlement after the 5 year mark Every USC should take time to examine the norms in the non USC's culture and understand that they aren't so special that their spouse is going to go against what they were brought up with.
This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this. so sad to hear, I married a man from overseas that I chatted with online for 10 months before meeting in person, we are now married 14 years. Honesty, trust, respect regardless of country of origin religion etc go a long way, wish you all the best. My fiancé, who is nearly my age, doesn't believe any of the older American younger Arab couples are real.
That's his opinion as a young Arab male. I don't agree, though I can definitely see that some groups of men are more likely to be scammers. Lack of options in home countries really seem to motivate some people. It's sad. However, I've seen some [what I'd term] "odd" couples who are true kindred spirits and live very happily together. They are not the norm, but what they have is special and beautiful. It's not just Moroccan, not just foreign, not just young men who can use and abuse you and your life savings.
There are predators out there in society or on the internet, ready to take advantage of people who seem vulnerable enough. But their actions during courtship and in the first few months and perhaps years can be very illuminating if you are willing to be observant and not obtuse. It's hard to think clearly when you are in the throes of love, but nobody can do a better job of protecting you and yours than you yourself.
Does this Miroccan friend have status in the US? If not, beware. He could be grooming you and setting you up to be used. By telling you how other moroccan men are he is attempting to prove he is not like them when he very well may be.
I'm not saying that you are at fault for trusting him, but you were naïve. Right now being naïve is almost a crime. I agree with everyone here. I think it's possible my guy had 2 plans. Meanwhile hookup with girls to remedy physical needs because I was not interested in him because he was completely emotionally and physically cold to me So instead of working on our relationship and trying actively to become better partners, he chose avoidance which made it worse and began using my life as a stepping stone instead of being my actual friend.
In any culture even ours this would be a bad partner true. But My belief is that if he REALLY was so crazy in love with me and only wanted a life with me his wife and we were working together on that life, I think he would have put in even a small bit of effort when issues arouse instead of giving up and taking care of himself.
I am not bitter at him exactly I know some will want to see it that way especially those in the midst of their visa journey I lost love for him early on when I realized he was not the man I thought I had he was and tried to still adjust to the man he actually was.
I waited many years to divorce because I was really trying to turn it around but after I noticed the western union money grams and the text messages with women he was meeting instead of going to the mosque etc I couldn't live with him. My warning is this He many of them from those countries Claimed he was a good muslim and in their religion they can only sleep with their wife we did not sleep together until we were married So I trusted him.
He said that Allah knew people's hearts and minds and a good muslim does not lie or hurt others blah blah blah I know I know but these are the things we talked about on line all the time! The goodness of people's character and religion and family and the importance of our family's etc Of course he thought I was beautiful and looked young when I told him my real age I lied online so he thought I was younger I only weigh lbs so I am not a heavy older woman I look very young because I am European and we age like that.
But even when I would mention the age difference to him he would tell me a lot of men from his country marry foreign women and do not care about age, that's age is nothing only your heart matters and what kind of person you are etc I asked about the really over weight women marrying the thin men he said if they are a good wife it does not matter. All signs pointed to yes for me to let my guard down. And he was so polite and respectful.
Actually he always was even here. After all the years with him I love the culture of his country, learned to cook the meals still do I read the Quran and coincided myself both muslim and Christian etc Would love another muslim man especially from his culture if he is already here i t he states and has his papers!
Honestly my warning is due to some other guys from my husbands country telling me what is commonly the cycle there with these relationships. They knew I was sad about my marriage ending and they convinced me that it was a planned thing by my husband. They pointed out every thing that went wrong and said it was sooo common. They have websites that help coach them and offer poetry and English phrases to help them proclaim their affections.
They know who to pay to get their marriage papers and documents processed quickly once your their marrying them. They know how to save documentation and pictures as proof that you love them and store them on SIM cards or other media as proof in case when they get here the us cites in changes there mind or things go bad. Honestly I never would have believed that my husband would have sex with other women because of his religious beliefs!
But reading his communication back and forth with many misc women he is only looking for sex. Telling them when he is getting off work and giving them his cell number. And they were not nice girls either, they were ads just for sex lol could have been men from what they sounded like very aggressive. He was a completely different guy from the pious, modest, muslim guy I thought I had married!
what he did is completely wrong per the religion of Islam. My husband doesn't buy them either. But then scams happen within similarly aged couples, too. All anyone can do is be cautious and look out for themselves. But first, it will piss you off.
Yeah I was totally naive. I had just been learning as I went along and it was an emotional roller coaster! I know when you want love you become blind. I just never heard a man talk like this and seem so sincere so I was hoodwinked.
It's like a bad dream. I don't want anyone to go thru this and it's my nature and heart to want to warn poor lonely women. The desire to help does nothing, people in the immigration process are so blinded by lust that nothing will open their eyes. In the SubSarahan group there are people that don't like the hate when warning people they are being scammed they actually drop me a PM to speak up in case I missed the topic.

Recommended Posts. Rosesarered Filed: Timeline. Posted January 4, Share this post Link to post Share on other sites. etrangais Posted January 5, Almost all online dating scams involve money in one way or another. Sometimes they may ask very quickly within a week, for example.
However, sometimes they may wait for months to ask for money in order to gain your trust; especially if they plan on asking for a more substantial amount of money. The most common scammers will typically ask for smaller amounts at first, but will suddenly begin asking for much bigger amounts. These online scammers have numerous amounts of scams that they use and sometimes they can be extremely creative when making them. A large weak point that is very typical of online dating scammers is their social media.
More often than not, they forget to both build structure such as lack of friends, page likes, posts and photos. Sometimes, they even have a personal social media account that has their real name and photo. Most online dating scammers like to use stolen photos taken from other social media accounts; and may even use a stock photo. Typically, if more than one name is connected to that photo, then it is stolen.
Anonymity is something almost all online dating scammers want, which means in almost every circumstance, they avoid video chats at all cost. If you suspect that you may potentially be falling victim to a romance scam, request to initiate a video call with this person.
If they deny this and make excuses, especially more than twice, then this is a huge red flag; and you should take extra precautions. Online dating scammers are not located within the same country as the victim in most cases, which means that they will likely have an accent. The scammers know this, so they will almost certainly not accept a phone call from their victim. Not only could this possibly expose the scammer as not being a local, it would also give the victim a chance to ask hard questions, which means the script that the scammer uses may not be nearly as effective.
If you are denied a phone call, especially more than twice, then that should be considered suspicious. This should go without saying, but if you suspect someone may be trying to scam you, ask hard questions. You might be wondering what those are. Doing so allows you the opportunity of letting them slip up and make an answer that is completely incorrect. On almost every occasion, scammers will inevitably ask you for money. Sometimes this can start small, and usually happens within the first few weeks, although it can happen after months have passed.
However, if you are asked to send money for any reason, this should immediately raise a red flag. Never send money to anyone online, especially those who you have never met in real life. Personal information should be kept exactly what it is called: personal. Online dating scammers may not directly ask for money from you, but instead ask for personal information and take it themselves; and may even steal your identity.
Never give anyone on an online dating website your social security number, banking details or your home address. Doing so could lead to huge legal issues such as bankruptcy, identity theft and, in some extreme cases, jail time. Most of the scripts that are used by online dating scammers include certain keywords to use when they are grooming their victims.
These keywords are used to try and drag you into a romance trance, which will lower your guard, making you much more vulnerable to his request. It is important that you perform a quick background check on who you are actually speaking to on the internet you can do that here.

I asked my friend Brenda to write as my dating experience is over a decade old. Both she and I wrestled with how to talk about this topic but I knew I wanted to. Because I get emails ALL THE TIME asking questions specific to dating a Moroccan or dating in Morocco. Dating itself in Morocco, between Moroccans themselves and between Moroccans and foreigners can feel and be a reality for a good chunk of people taboo.
There are so many factors and circumstances that make up the dating world in and out of Morocco. To begin, I want to say the thing some people will hate to admit: Moroccans date. Whether religiously they or others believe it is right or wrong, it exists in Morocco just like anywhere else in the world.
In rural places, dating is secretive. In my own experience, I only became aware of teenagers crushing on each other from my pseudo-village confidante position being the only American in the village. But, for traditional and oddly some non-traditional folk, you become a woman when you consummate your marriage. Are you a woman navigating a cross-cultural relationship and wishing you had a little more support or someone to bounce your questions off?

This is also visible for mixed couples like myself and my significant other. Mind you this is AFTER my mom and family members had come to Morocco and met his family. Read up on some of the other rules relating to social norms Prostitution is also illegal and while the two things are mutually exclusive topics they both occur in Morocco.
On an almost contradictory point, I should point out in big cities some couples actually live together. I lived with my Moroccan boyfriend for about a year before we got engaged. This post is not the all-encompassing guide on dating in Morocco, but I hope it will shed light on some stereotypes and give you a different perspective on a topic that is usually hush-hush.
By keeping these experiences only in private conversations, we give power to the taboo and no one wants to feel like their desire for love is taboo. Sure there are cultural differences but that exists anywhere. Whenever someone asks me a relationship question I encourage them to look at the relationship the same way they would if it was someone they met at a party or from across the state.

I've been in a relationship with a Moroccan man for 9mos. And all I thought is we're okay, but when he talked to his father about our relationship he is not okay with it. He said we will have a big problem in the future like, culture, religion and etc.
But its really hurt because i thought we were okay and there's not a problem but in just 1min he told me that we need to break up because of that.. My friend said Muslim is for Muslim. Now I'm really hurt. As an American women having a long-distance relationship with a Marco man, is it truly illegal to have pre-martial sex and if so, is it readily enforced?
I plan to return and need to have this clarified beforehand so to avoid any legal ramifications. There are of course but I would be wary of any man years younger that claims those types of strong feelings so quickly. In morocco if you are not married then you are seen as a girl not a woman well maybe only in villages i am moroccan and i have never heard that before.
