Scamsters who adopt this method typically use forged or bogus checks, and it's not difficult to realize who's overpaying who.If you receive an reply from someone in Africa/Nigeria/Abidjan who claims to have millions of dollars from a dead husband/father/brother and wants you to help get the money out of their country - it just sounds too good to be true!

Some scamsters take your money and run, leaving you with nothing but a lighter wallet. In most cases, you can dispute credit card charges for non-delivery of goods.
You can also use an intermediary service such as escrow.
For a small fee, an escrow service holds the payment, forwarding it to the seller only when the buyer has received the goods in working order.
An escrow service will also act as a mediator in times of dispute.
By now there is one pattern we are aware of - *he* places his profile on free dating sites and invites girls to come to his place and stay for a couple of months to see how it works.
During this time period, his lady guest is doing her best to make him to like her - household, cooking, laundry, everything, sure free of charge and then - "good-bye" we are not good for each other. This is probably the most difficult case to define if he is a "scammer" or not.
But obviously the same pattern will work here - *he* will not be interested in a lady's personality, he will not answer all questions and will avoid to share his life details. i also know the site you sent me to has no way for the lady to reply and it is one sided. will allways doubt wheter is the girl or the agency that is making the scam.
