What's typical for us is new and often scary for some one else.
I recall when I first found out about nigerian romance scammers, all because one in particular was actively pursuing me even when I kept telling him I wasn't interested.
You don't respond within seconds or minutes and wind up with the every annoying "BUZZ" Sometimes consecutively. They even push the love thing even if you tell them you aren't interested.
3.) Some are claiming to be going for masters degree/post grad, etc.

AND they are most often in search of a god fearing mate.I notice that sometimes their game switches up, or that there are other signs about them that are not always stressed, that might be useful to add onto a list for potential victims to watch out for.Here are things I would like to add to look out for that I have found coming from scammers.5) they chat with you, send love letters (stolen from elsewhere and easily googled), sometimes send little gifts, purchased with stolen CC 6) they talk to you on the phone and sound bloody African, but you think it's a sexy "Italian" accent.7) women send you nude pictures, you can bet they are stolen from porn sites 8) often, they propose you marriage or promise to marry you 9) they even send you "documents": bad photoshopped passports and stuff 10) you are hooked, you are in love I know this is discussed to death, but it can't hurt having more lists that those with experiences with scammers can add more.
