INDONESIA DATING SITE SCAM
The Indonesia dating site scam. What exactly does that mean? So, where do we start? There are so many scams in Indonesia we can’t cover them all. The most prevalent is the Indonesian dating site scam and Indonesian bar girl scams. The two can be as one in some cases. Back in the day, it was all done by snail mail. Remember those days when people used to write letters? Technology has changed the game today. Now a person can be scammed from anywhere in the world with ease. Many of these scammers come from Indonesia. They use legitimate online dating services to locate and target their victims. The Indonesia dating site scam also makes it easy to target victims for Sextortion.
“I’ve seen honest faces before. They usually come attached to liars.”
Most victims are unaware
A foreign man meets an Indonesian woman on an Indonesian dating site. They start up an online relationship, and things seem okay. She’s a young, fun, and a beautiful girl from a farming village in northern Indonesia. The first few days or weeks go well; then things start to change. She begins to tell you things aren’t so lovely in the land of islands. You see, Papa needs an operation. Sister lost her job and needs help. Plus she is just dying to advance her life but needs money for school. And of course, she is miserable. You message and call her as often as you can. You stare at her text messages; I love you too much! I miss you too much! However, you can’t wait for your first trip to Indonesia to see her. Everything is going so well, and the world is terrific.
Buffalo broke a Leg
Then out of nowhere, disaster strikes! The family buffalo broke a leg and can’t plough the fields. The vet says it might die if not treated immediately. But the treatment will cost a small fortune. It’s more than they can afford! And if that wasn’t enough, Papa had a heart attack! Now he’s in the hospital and no money to pay the bills. She’s tried to ask other family members for money. But they are dirt poor too. What will she do? You are her last hope! Without your help, her family will be in a terrible situation! Destitute and no way to turn, she pleads for your help. So, like a comic book hero, you spring to the rescue. Bodoh Bule (stupid foreigner) to the rescue! You copy down her info and head straight to the nearest Western Union office to save the day. Don’t forget that MTCN number!
Except, of course, that the buffalo isn’t sick. They don’t even own a buffalo. She’s not a cashier at 7-11 either. Worse, she’s probably asking her 2 or 3 other foreign “boyfriends” for the same amount of money. She’s probably at the bar she works in right now joking about it with her Indonesian boyfriend. Congratulations! You’ve just joined the club. Does any of this sound familiar to you? It is the trap many foreign men fall into with an Indonesia dating site scam. They don’t understand the game, nor do they know what the game is. Indonesia dating site scam is very similar to the Indonesian bar girl scams. Most of the time, it is the same thing. Many of the Indonesia dating site scam perpetrators are Indonesian bar girls. It is not always the case. But it is becoming the trend.
Technology changed the game
The nightlife in Indonesia is expensive for the average Indonesian girl. Drinks in clubs and discos average IDR 150.000 or more per glass in 2020. The median Indonesian salary for working-class people in 2020 is IDR 2.500.000. That’s $185.00 US dollars. An average apartment is IDR 1.000.000. That leaves an average of IDR 1.500.000 to live on for food and other expenses. Very few Indonesian girls can afford to go out clubbing on such a low income. So, they either end up working in bars or find other methods. One of our operatives is a former Indonesian bar girl. According to her, the new and preferred way of meeting men and sourcing income is through Indonesian dating websites. It saves them lots of money otherwise lost at expensive nightclubs and discos. So, why go out and spend money when you can make money on the Internet at home?
It makes a lot of sense. According to her, more and more Indonesian bar girls are quitting bars and taking up fishing on Indonesian dating sites. Many of them are running an Indonesia dating site scam on unsuspecting foreigners. It is reasonably easy to do. I know how gullible some men are. A previous client sent an Indonesian girl he never met before USD $7000.00. An additional $3000.00 went to expedite the visa process. No such process exists, but he believed her story. Then she disappeared without a trace and asked us to help him locate her. Not because he was angry. Because he was worried something happened to her. We found her at the address she gave him. We found her husband and two children too. An experienced Indonesian private investigator can help you.
Scams in Indonesia
They say a sucker is born every minute. Especially on Indonesian dating sites. The amount of victims is high. We get many requests for investigations involving the Indonesia dating site scam. Most are middle-aged men who think they have landed a hot 26-year-old Indonesian girl. They meet, they correspond and get intimate online, and they fall in love too. He does, anyway. In reality, he is being set up and played. Experts in the Indonesia dating site scam have excellent emotional blackmail and manipulation skills. Many of them are Indonesian bar girls who honed their skills working in go-go bars and the streets of Jakarta. Their street training migrates perfectly to the Indonesia dating site scam.
