About 90% of all scammers we are catching on our new dating Website Bienen und Blumen
are from Côte d'Ivoire
. I'm using only the IP adresses and some of the free available geoip services on several websites to get this information.
The scam we get is a combination of money transfer frauds and dating scams, and most of it is coming from this country, Côte d'Ivoire. I'm wondering why. Maybe it's the combination of available internet access points and the currently more difficult economic situation down there? Or it's normal and most of this type of scam is coming from there? Is it because they are in the same time zone as us? Or maybe is Côte d'Ivoire running the most popular proxy servers of Africa?
Would be interesting to know. :)
