That time I watched on Crimewatch or some program.  The plot can be very elaborate if they feel that the woman can be conned.  The woman will think that the guy is some successful rich angmo.  He will pretend to need $ to get out of some legal crap and ask her to meet his lawyer in KL.

The lawyer in KL will actually have a fake office with fake employees if the woman decides to go there to help.  I remember in the show, the woman ended up being swindled close to $100k.  She transferred the $ over many transactions until she really broke + borrow from banks etc..

If the woman can get a high amt loan, that means the woman is also a high flier kind...
Maybe they target those women?

Actually, look at it this way...more sg guys looking overseas for wife rather than SG girls. There must be a reason at it...
My personal opinion is that, the more educated and financially independent the ladies are, the less tolerant but more demanding you will be with your partner.
Meaning to say, generally, SG girls are moving into this direction... and seems like most guys find it hard to catch up and becomes tired along the way... what can the ladies offer to them? Maybe during lovey dovey honeymoon period, everything is good... but as times goes by?

What these swindlers prey on is to give these women "attention" and "being loved" feeling. Dotted line, they are asking a "Service fee" in return...

Second that. Be it men or women, no one is keen to jump from one warzone (work) to another warzone (home, bgr). Arguing whose right or wrong, always chasing to keep another party from feeling bored is a tiring journey. 

Conman and conwoman jump right at the sweet spots vulnerable men and women are weak at. Modern men and women are getting less and less patient. Since cheating is the conman and conwoman's job, they are likely to be much more patient. Thats a crucial sweet spot.

educated not equal to smart. I've met uni grad ladies who are not smart. And they are from NTU or NUS.
