Watch out though. Scammers are good at fraud In law, fraud is intentional deception to secure unfair or unlawful gain (money or other assets), or to deprive a victim of a legal right. Fraud can violate civil law (e.g., a fraud victim may sue the fraud perpetrator to avoid the fraud or recover monetary compensation) or criminal law (e.g., a fraud perpetrator may be prosecuted and imprisoned by governmental authorities), or it may cause no loss of money, property, or legal right but still be an element of another civil or criminal wrong. The purpose of fraud may be monetary gain or other benefits, for example by obtaining a passport, travel document, or driver's license, or mortgage fraud, where the perpetrator may attempt to qualify for a mortgage by way of false statements.
A fraud can also be a hoax, which is a distinct concept that involves deliberate deception without the intention of gain or of materially damaging or depriving a victim.. They can send a photo that shows a sign, as they are easily photoshopped. So ask for something obvious like them holding a daily newspaper with that day’s date.
The good news is that most scammers use stolen photos, and this means they have no way to provide a PROOF photo. BUT some do because the person they stole the photos from had them in their galleries, or they will edit a photo to make one.
The place where this breaks down and are the dangerous ones are the real people scammers. These are real people, or at least have a real person to hook you. They know there is almost nothing you can do to them, so there are thousands of real scammers around the world (mostly in Southeast Asia, such as the Philippines, and also in Eastern Europe and Latin America). They will send you all the photos you could ever want, but in the end, it proved nothing – you are still being scammed.
Ultimately, Use What You Know, And If You Smell A Rat, Move On!
