As the pro-dater is eager to date again, the next date is immediately set up with the next wealthy foreigner.
The scammer convinces their victim they are sincere until they are able to build up enough of a rapport to ask for thousands of dollars to help bring the gold into the victim's country.
The scammer will offer to fly to the victim's country to prove they are a real person so the victim will send money for the flight. The victim will contact the scammer to ask what happened, and the scammer will provide an excuse such as not being able to get an exit visa, or an illness, theirs or a family member.
Unlike a gold digger, who marries for money, a pro-dater is not necessarily single or available in real life.
Another variation of the romance scam is when the scammer insists they need to marry in order to inherit millions of dollars of gold left by a father, uncle, or grandfather.
