To find love is, at best, a Sisyphean occupation, yet it is an occupational activity desired by so many.Internet Romance Scams are operated by both men and women, straight or gay. The target is irrelevant, the basic script remains the same:

The scourge of Romance Scams has invaded Internet Dating Sites, Social Networking Sites, Instant Messaging Systems and other venues on the Internet. These scam artists worm their way into the lives of their victims, winning their trust and then conning their victims out of their money, their credit and eventually their credibility. When the scam artists receive their money, they turn a large portion of it over to various Islamic terror organizations, so they can finance their activities . . . completing their evil chain of terrorism finance.

In this book we aim to highlight their shortcomings and make them look completely stupid in their efforts to scam our decoy Facebook profile “Gertrude Gutbucket”. Gertrude, or “Gerty” as she is affectionately known sprang to life from my early involvement with a support group for those who have suffered at the hands of romance scammers. In an effort to exact some kind of revenge on behalf of the group members, Gerty was thrust into action to play known scammers at their own game, with the resulting conversations being posted onto the group wall purely for the entertainment value that her correspondence with the scammers created.
