The admin team and many of our Buzzers do our best to keep our site safe from scammers, spammers and troublemakers, you can also help us and help yourself at the same time.

Romance Scammer is the term given to people who try to win the hearts and minds of others with a view to eventually getting some sort of financial gain from them.

When a Romance Scammer joins Buzz50 one of the first things that they may do is to form some sort of communication channel with as many potential 'victims' as possible. This is because they realise that it is likely that they will be soon found out for what they really are and booted off the site, so a means of communication away from the site is vital to their plan.

This will often be by:
Phone
email
Skype
Hangouts etc.

If a Buzzer asks you to contact them away from the site then you should be very suspicious, especially if it is a new member.

If you suspect a Buzz50 member to be a scammer then please do not hesitate to contact us, your report will be in the strictest confidence.

We currently have a very persistent scammer who has joined and been removed over 80 times now, and is removed as soon as he is spotted.

We are taking the rare step of exposing this person so that members are made aware and if spotted reported as swiftly as possible.

Do not engage with him in any way, report and forward to one of the admin team any messages you may receive.

Below are some of the profile images that this particular scammer has used so far, of course there is no guarantee that he will use these images again.

We thank you for your continued vigilance and helping up to keep Buzz50 safe for all.

The Admin team.
