It's not just guns and drugs that are up for sale on deep web sites.Vendors also list guides on how to commit other illegal activities.The documents are often sold for small amounts of money, but the price barrier, the need to pay with Bitcoin, and the fact that they're only available on the deep web prevents the guides from being circulated widely.The document, titled Adhrann's Updated Dating Scam 2014, lays out a method for creating fake dating site profiles, ensnaring men in conversation, and then pressuring them to send money.This screenshot shows a user of a hacker forum being advised that a quick way to find sets of photos is to automatically download them from Facebook: Even before a scammer messages you, you can spot they're fake by checking their photos.Performing a Google image search for an account's profile picture will show you where on the internet the image appears — sometimes you'll see it attached to Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts with various different names.It's called the "cashing out" stage, and it's where scammers start to ask for money.

But there's a type of dating site scam that's far trickier to spot, and the people who operate it claim to be making thousands of dollars every month fooling vulnerable men.Business Insider obtained a PDF guide that is sold online for just £2.59.It details how scammers operate fake dating site profiles in order to con men out of money.So how do you know if someone is trying to scam you?Well, first of all, Adhrann suggests that readers look for certain types of men: "40-60, technical or financial formation (IT, analyst, accountant, consultant, engineer, etc); lonely, or still living with parents, poor social/conversational skills, shy, a bit weird, nerd type, etc." So if that sounds like you, stay alert.
