Dating Site Impostors

Today's deviant criminal mind and online impostor can be summed up in two words the 'Romance Scammer.' Who's only true motivation in life is to fraudulently con a targeted audience out of their financial resources through the use of confidence tricks. These fraudsters can be observed browsing dating sites and lurking upon all types of social media for potential victims 

Fake Dating Site Profiles
The images that Romance Scammers prefer to use on fake dating site profiles are that of professional models and are not a true reflection of themselves. Most often the impostors behind these stolen photos are found to be non specific with their gender preferences and are of a completely different race. 

Masquerading online as attractive people these fraudsters attempt to allure their potential victims into providing them with financial support. This may be in the form of medical expenses  airplane tickets, educational expenses or any other means of advance fee fraud. The promise of an intimate relationship made by one of these impostors rarely occurs, leaving numerous victims feeling embarrassed, traumatized and in many cases, financial ruin.

Organized Dating Site Criminals
International Romance Scammers are 'dating site impostors', fraudsters and identity thieves who often work together collaboratively though out a network of internet cafes. These internet pirates operate in countries that are customarily outside of the victims legal recourse or jurisdiction. Two such notorious gangs operating from the African continent are the 'Sakawa Boys' from Ghana and the 'Yahoo Boys' from Nigeria.

Sakawa Boys believe they have the religious right to blink the 'western foe' out of their monies though the use of online spiritual witchcraft. Often involving superficial sacrifices associated with voodoo, these deviant con-artists will go to lengthy extremes in order to appease 'The Master' or 'Juju priest'. 

This culture or cult, of deplorable but yet lucrative criminal activity has subverted many government agencies and officials into the acceptance of this practice. This belief system has become so deeply entrenched within the Ghana culture, that cinema and movie icons have evolved from its facetious portrayal

Nigerian impostors or Yahoo Boys are also well known for combining the use of voodoo and email scams to cheat foreign peoples out of their monies online. Typically found through out the numerous internet cafe's in Lagos these computer educated cyber-criminals are said to rip-off the international community billions of dollars annually.

The number of organized and self serving criminals within these two countries have grown beyond the control of traditional justice. The crime can only truly be combated through the use of online education or public awareness. To approach these criminals after the fact is not recommended wherein the gangster or terrorist  mentality prevails. Claimants have gone missing while traveling though out these countries .

Combating Cybercrime
There are several anti-scam agencies and individuals providing online educational support with combating these deviant criminals.

Here are just a few examples


Beware of fake dating site profiles on line. You never know for sure who the person is behind the picture you are seeing. There are now 'criminal gangs' and 'terrorists' masquerading as models both male and female upon these sites...All of them impostors...!

The New Conservative Transformation and Tough on Crime Agenda

...."As the conservative Party of Canada we do not believe in putting the rights of criminals above the rights of victims"...

 criminals to pay for the
administrative costs
of a Canadian Pardon

(Chris Wattie/Reuters)
In May of 2010 the Conservative government announced a bill to essentially eliminate pardons, in favour of more narrowly defined "criminal record suspensions," thereby making it much harder for people convicted of a serious crime to be granted a pardon.
Under new legislation the time period that a convicted felon has to wait prior to applying for a Canadian Pardon has increased from three years to five for a summary offense, and from five years to ten for an indictable offense.
Typically the cost of having an agency prepare a Canadian Pardon is approximately $500, and the wait period for this application to be approved or denied by the National Parole Board takes between eight to twelve months.

What is a Federal Pardon

"The National Parole Board says a regular pardon is simply 'a recognition that you are of good conduct".

Many jobs in banking, health care, teaching, security and government require that you are able to be bonded. Having a criminal record may prevent a prospective employer from hiring you as a employee. 

The purpose of a 'Canadian Pardon' is to give those people who have been convicted of a past criminal offense a 'second chance in life' by removing their criminal records from public availability.

A pardon is not meant to erase or excuse a persons prior criminal act, nor should it be considered as an admission of guilt to the various convictions or dismissed charges that will appear upon the Canadian Police Information System.

Canada's Extra-Judicial Solution to Homelessness

The average age of the homeless people living in Canadian shelters is between the ages of thirty-five and fifty-five and they have been drifting across this country in search of food, shelter and employment for the past twenty to thirty years.

In the 1980's only 5% of this homeless population mentioned above had a criminal record. Today over 70% of them now have a criminal record with charges ranging from totalitarian to completely moronic. For example; urinating in a public place could land you a prison term and then a life sentence down at one of the many Canadian Homeless Shelters.

According to Pardons Canada four million people can not find suitable employment, ascertain a post-secondary education, or cross the American border due to criminal record checks, thereby leaving them as unproductive citizens in society with a higher aptitude to re-offend.

It would be interesting to know how many of Canada's inmates have resided at a Canadian homeless shelter and were forced into working for Temporary labor Agencies prior to their various convictions .

The Tories want to hike the fees for a Canadian Pardon

The Public Safety Minister Vic Toews said that the Harper government wants to charge more to those applying for an Canadian Pardon and has asked the Parole Board of Canada to begin consultations on the proposed increase

"Increasing the user fee will contribute to the effectiveness and long-term sustainability of the Parole Board of Canada's pardons program, which is not sustainable at the current cost, and ensure it is able to continue to meet its mandate"...Vic Toews....

The current administrative fees for filing a Canadian Pardon sits at $150 if the purposed new legislation is approved this cost will increase to $631. 

Human Rights Conflict
Rule of Law

In a free and democratic society the role of the Federal government should not be to protect the rights of one group of people over that of another whether they be big or small, left or right, rich or poor but instead the government should be representing the rights of all 'Canadians' as guaranteed underneath the 'Canadian Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms'

When a legal dispute arises between two parties it is up to to courts to decide the rights of the accused and that of the victim, this is why we have a court system in the first place

Therefore the role of the Canadian government should be to protect equal rights and rule of law for all Canadians

The Bottom Line
Criminal records cost the community and in reality which costs the taxpayer more the amount of time a prisoner is in prison or the time period the former inmate has to wait for a criminal pardon

Is the federal government prepared to reimburse provincial and municipal governments the necessary monies required to house all these unemployed former inmates on social programs while they are awaiting a Canadian Pardon.
