The Voice On The Other End Of The Line

The Voice on the Other End of the Line might sound sexy and alluring, but the chances are that the persons behind the voice is the exact opposite to what you might be looking for. It’s similar to the old thing about ‘putting a face to a name’. In this case it is putting ‘voice to a face’. The name of course irrelevant. It’s unlikely it is true and it’s most likely being used by phone sex girls to ad allure to their persona. Even the pictures you might see in an on-line advertisement will be of women who present as being sexy, and they may be, but your are using chat with omegle girls who is likely to be nothing like the sexy voice on the other end of the line.

All of that aside the real problem is that many of these sorts of services can be a scam. You are lured in, then the stories start where money is requested for all sorts of reasons from hardship to needing money to travel to meet you. The problems then emerge. The person on the other end of the line doesn’t exist. The money has been paid and then one realises that they’ve been had! These scams are prolific, but even with all the warning signs and advice people still get scammed and its not just men, it happens to women to. There’s a lot of loneliness out there in the world and a lot of unscrupulous individuals and groups who will take advantage of that loneliness. With the advent of growing forms of social me, so are the vehicles for these sorts of scammers. My personal experience is lots of scammers on Facebook. Friend request come in, most of which I suspicious of straight away. Usually you are dealing with contacts from places like Nigeria or Asia. Depending on the type of profile picture, there is software which can be used to identify people the scammer posts as friends. When you look into it, as I have, you might find that your looking at female models, or other people of note. The funniest one I encountered was a so-called, high ranking military officer, with great integrity. The truth was not was he a despot, but he had been dead for six years. Another thing to look for is what is on the persons time line. I almost there is nothing ore very little.

So the warning is, ‘be careful’. You are feeding these people with information about yourself and your friends. If you have the slightest doubt, decline the request and report the person. The same goes for request for your phone number and/or you email address from people want to have more intimate contact with you. Scammers don’t care about a persons vulnerability, they prey on it and exploit people generous nature or loneliness.
