Actually most of the time they do try to get you to send money to Africa. It's the most common country right now through the Internet dating sites. This happened to my aunt. She talked to this guy she met through Christianmingle.com every day for months: online, through emails, and on her cellphone. Then one day he started asking her to make large purchases and send the items to him saying he would pay her back. Luckily she was smart enough to end it when that happened and didn't send him anything.
#10 was obviously joking but correct. That's what some scammer do. They'll ask you to send over monies to an uncommon place/country and for your troubles-- they promise to repay double, triple etc. . . sometime in the near future only to be M.I.A. later. Some never report it because they feel foolish for falling for the trap. Dateline NBC much? Many target lonely overly-trusting women.
