Thai bride scam...

Ummm… Thats NOT what’s happening. It appears you are about 40 years behind the curve. It’s a Cycle, with much more involved than I care to type as it’s usually a 16 hour class in Cop School.

Stop blaming the victim.
Stockholm syndrome? Give us a clue at least..wiki link, anything
 
Its not just blokes that get scammed. For women the equivalent is the Gambian toyboy. Middle aged women would go to Gambia looking for some BBC and get chatted up by some young Gambian stud. He would be knobbing her during the holiday and she would be showering him with cash, presents and train sets. She would keep in touch after the holiday, still sending him presents and go out there again for subsequent holidays.

Young stud would have several middle aged white women on the books, earning him a nice living. It could go wrong though, when middle aged women decides to suprise Mr Stud by going out to Gambia unannounced and find that Mr Stud is already engaged in servicing another old lady who had previously booked. Sometimes they would marry Mr Stud. They would find that once he gets to the UK and clears her out for as much as he can, he then disappears, never to be seen or heard from again. Cue femminist cries of 'all men are b*stards and the local plod aren't doing enough about it.

Gambia is the female equivalent of Pattaya in Thailand.

An old school friend who turned 61 in January just did this. Her husband of 40 years died last summer and left her a few million quid.

Last week she posted this photo on FB, she has married a 30 year-old bloke she met in Ghana while on holiday.

She never had dyed blonde hair, dreadlocks or tattoos while her husband was alive.

that pictur ejust screams love & affection, doesn't it?
I really do hope it works out, but I suspect she'll be photoshopped out of that pic & it'll be on dating sites (in the UK) within 2 months.

Just like the channel migrants, he's hoping to get to England by riding on a collection of spare tyres.
 
A lot of notorious cons get fan mail from females. Apparently Ian Huntley gets a lot but I think he bats the other way now. Probably had so many objects shoved up his arrse by the other cons that he began to enjoy it.

I saw one of the old police collater paper intelligence cards once noting the visit of one of the nurses at Hillingdon Hospital who was visiting a notorious life in Wormwood Scrubbs. She wasn't a relative or former girlfriend. She started as a penfriend and then started visiting him.

Par, I used to shake my head at such goings on.

Decades ago, in the Department I worked for, there used to be a 'Conjugal Rights' programme designed to keep marriages intact while the inmate was incarcerated and to maintain family ties.
A 'portakabin' was converted into an apartment within the secure confines of the facility complete with kitchen, stocked larder, tv, etc., wife, inmate and, sometimes, children would spend 24 hours building and maintaining the relationship.
It was an awful programme.... inmates began to exploit lonely women via pen pal dating sites, propose marriage, get married by the prison chaplain all in order to have access to the programme.
Thankfully it was abolished.

I found Nurses, and teachers, were particularly susceptible to the blandishments of smooth talking cons, many fell from grace...or at least were fired from the Department, when the 'relationship' was discovered... perhaps it was their compassionate, nurturing nature!
After I'd walked one such 'fallen woman' out of the facility I attended roll call on all three shifts and lectured on the dangers and pitfalls female staff faced in a Correctional environment.... I invited the females to look around...said, "I have a staff of 600 fit, heterosexual, males, 60% of whom are single...they'd be only too delighted to scratch any itch you may have!"
I shudder at the memory of that remark... I'd probably be fired if I said that in this day and age!

I'm absolutely certain that there is a whole industry that exists to service the social curse of domestic violence and yet, curiously, DV still flourishes. The crime always lies with the perpetrator, but the cycle will continue until it is broken.

Stop absolving the victim of the need to break the cycle by making the right decisions.

Everyone has the right not to be burgled. The resposibility for burglary lies solely with the burglar. Everyone has the right to leave their front doors and windows wide open, yet no one would recommend this as a sensible course of action in order not to become a victim.

As with all crime prevention, the essential element of breaking the cycle is to remove the opportunity.
 
My Brother in law imported a Russian Bride about ten years ago. Well he said she was Russian but in stories from him that changed. it at times varied from Romania to one of the Baltic states. Trouble is that he has an issue with telling the truth so what he says is suspect. She was just as bad and it was at one stage she demanded that he bought her a Nissan Skyline for her to learn to drive in. He went to numerous meetings to immigration. Got married without inviting his parents. She got leave of stay. Within Months she way gone. She had got a job at a company doing some high flying job she was neither qualified or capable of doing. One she was sussed that she was way out of her depth she got fired. Oh did I not mention the Manager who hired her got the boot as well he then left his wife and took up with her. We told him she was going as soon as she had a right to stay but he wouldn't listen. On a separate note I used to work in a distribution centre for a well known supermarket about 20 years ago. Initially you had to do picking before you were elevated to scanning goods in or loading trucks. Therefore we were taken a back when a female foreign agency worker suddenly appeared in our ranks. Turned out she was an import bride. Even more strangely she suddenly disappeared never to be seen again. Turns out she had left the bloke who imported her and was knocking off one of the managers. She somehow managed to get taken on from being a temp. I for one am completely baffled as to how this came to be. The company had taken on her on without doing the checks they should have done and when they went to ask she "disappeared"
Tell him to dob her in.

Even if married it can very nastily impact upon her ´retained rights´if they get divorced. At some point she will want to exercise her rights here in the UK and when she does it will bite her in the backside.

You don’t want him to drop himself in the brown smelly stuff so make sure he states that it was only after she left him that he realised it was all a sham, that all the pieces fell into place etc. If she can be a snake with t1ts then she deserves it back in spades.

Another victim-in-waiting.

Yes, I can recall Peter Sutcliffe boasting in a newspaper that he gets a lot of female fan mail. He never said whether they are British, American or elsewhere. Any of these stupid bitches would be screaming if he turned up at her front door.
I once dealt with a stalker by threatening to nick some of her photos off FB, and write a love letter, including her address and number, to scrounging Derby child-killer, Mick Philpott in his prison cell. She backed off sharp, I can tell you.
I could have been a right b@stard and used Levi Bellfield.
Now...which of you fcukers has been writing letters in my name to Rose West and Joanne Dennahy?

Seen something very much like that.

Matronly lady friend of an Ex, but she had actually found love with the scamp, honest, met his family and everything.

Flew out to meet him two or three times, she was having *lots* of great sex and they were going to get married.

For love.

Honest.

I pointed out the realities to my Ex, who eventually agreed and talked her out of it.

Well done, convincing someone in that situation, even if their paramor's hard luck stories are seriously draining the vitim's bank account is often almost impossible - they simply do not want to listen.

It's worse than that.

Things can easily turn quite nasty when you try and intercede in such matters. There can be a lot of , 'How dare you try and prevent me being happy! Are you jealous that I have found love? You just cannot bear to see me happy, can you?'. I'm sure that more than a few friendships have disintegrated as a result of such well-meaning interventions.

You haven't got Windsor Castle bugged by any chance have you? :)

However or whatever stupid choices blokes make in their love lives is nothing compared to what women do. I have known women (not exes or anything) who only go with guys who knock them about. Who will only go with guys who cheat on them, take their money, drop them in the sh1t. But the best has to be a series on tv a few years ago called, Death Row Dates. No men of any nationality, colour or religion, on the outside were stupid enough to get involved with a woman that they can never, ever have a proper relationship with.
I am 100% convinced that women have a stupidity gene.
Good job too , I doubt I'd last long in the wild.

I am under strict orders if left alone with a few years left in me to avoid Eastern European's, Polish, and Northern former Soviet States woman alone, the wife being half Polish not having a good impression, which leaves rather a large field but I don't have the heart to point this out.

Truth be told I would be like treating them like hire cars, drive them fast and riding them rough whilst waving my Zimmer frame and a packet of Viagra.

There was a lady on the radio a couple of days ago who sent £130k to a fraudster.
She was warned by her bank and the police to stop sending money, but she went to different banks and took out more loans and sent them off.

She even admitted that she’d lied to both the banks and the police, but still it’s the banks fault, as they should have tried harder to stop her foolishness.
She’s trying to raise 100k and so far has ‘earned’ £585.00.

When working on a crime desk in the Met, I used to see a few dating fraud scames. Midle aged divorced women on a dating site is contacted by a heroic US Special Forces soldier in Afghanistan who is under shot and shell. He sends Ally pictures of himself posing with his mates in full combat uniform. Then the scenario goes that it is all getting to much for him, he is beginning to crack up under the strain of constant combat and the PTSD is kicking in.

However Uncle Sam has kindly introduced a policy where friends, familly and well wishers can buy them out of their tour for around ten thousand US dollars or more. The lady, believing that she has found true love, and having watched John Wayne in The Green Berets with her older brother when she was a little girl, falls for it hook line and sinker. She gets the money and sends it to the account given. Usually there are further requests for money such as for medical expenses due to the wounds he substained in combat. A plane ticket to come and visit her etc, etc.

She presents PC Par Avion with the evidence she has. I point out to her that the photos that her beloved have sent have been hacked from a genuine website of an ex USSF soldier and a quick google search on images would have revealed this. She then presents me with an official looking form from the US Army Leave and Recreational Centre or some such official US organisation. Its from a Colonel Rodriegus US Army and thanks her for paying the money to release him from his tour. I point out the spelling mistakes in it and the poor grammar which suggests that it is not the senders first language and that even our American cousins would not mangle the English language in such a way. I also point out that no army in the world would allow its soldiers to buy themselves out of a tour of active duty.

I also pointed out that no soldier WIA would have to pay for his medical bills incurred as a result of his wounds, especially the US Armed Forces and the reason she hasn't heard from him again is because she has been conned, and at this moment Phillas M'Bongo is laughing his cock off in some internet cafe in Lagos, justifying it as reclamations for slavery by white imperialist, even though it was his ancestors who sold the Reverend Jessie Jackson's ancestors into slavery. He has probably got his next lonely, divorced, middle aged western women lined up.

Because they have gone outside the rules on the dating agencies site, they can not get any compensation. Because the vast majority originate from Nigeria and Ghana, there was little chance of any further police investigation.

One of the first cases like this I came across was of a young women in her thirties who was in contact with a USAF pilot on a dating website. He said that he had become anti war as a result of his previous experiences in theatre, bombing innocent brown women and kids etc. He was posted back to Iraqi or Afghanistan and he didn't want to go. However the USAF allowed its personnel to buy themselves out of a tour for $20,000. Unfortunately he didn't have that amount of money at the moment. 'Could she help.' Of course she could and sent him the money. She probably felt good that she had done her bit for the anti war movement and saved the lives of all those innocent civilians, the elderly, women and children from Yankee war mongering. She never saw her money again, or heard from our gallant aviator though.

I often wonder about this divorced middle aged women. Was the husband she divorced a
'bad un' and has she just been unlucky in love? Or was her ex husband a decent but boring bloke and once the kids had grown up and flown the nest, she 'wanted to find herself' and have a bit of excitment in her life before she got too old? A female mid life crisis?

I might have recounted on here before, a work colleague, mid 40s, ugly, overweight, with an even uglier partner, gets contacted by a slim young girl from Estonia ( or more likely he found her on a dating site)
pictures followed, and a meet was arranged, she was just short of the air fair being a student ( they are never short of money)
so he stumps up the air fair, but she never arrives, hotel booked for nookey !!
then nothing
and then it starts
sorry I was in a road accident on the way to the airport ( how bloody unusual)
I cant afford the hospital fees ( ten minutes googling would have told him about Estonia and its excellent healthcare system
so more money gets sent
then it was mother ill needing surgery
and on and on and on
finally I broached the subject of his unhappiness, and why he had stopped going on about this young bird

I explained, why would a fit young chick want to go out with an ugly so and so like you or me ??
I got him to speak to a Police Officer, and his face dropped when she showed him the real ID of the images, and the source of the postings and emails
I left the room at that point, but I would hazard a guess that a nice new car could have been purchased for that money
luckily he had a well paid job
but it did take its toll on him

trouble is the sight of titties and men go all stupid
I had some pictures of a Chinese Bird pop up on my phone, but led the muppet on until they lost interest
I am a realist you see
even my wife makes me undress in the dark
