If you have come through to this page on my website it is probably because you are are worried about a Gambian love-cheat. Maybe you have fallen ahead over heels for a Gambian but you’ve noticed some suspicious behaviour? Or maybe you are doing some research on behalf of a friend or family member who who think has been taken down hook line and sinker?
Back in 2012 I originally published my posts The Reality of Gambian Men? and Pattaya But Backwards: Sex Tourism in The Gambia. Since this time I have been inundated with women who are/have been involved with Gambian love-cheats or love-rats.
I have come to know that there are many women who have been scammed by these men, and many more who suspect that they may be being scammed! Some even call them professional fraudsters!
So I thought it would be helpful to put together a guide outlining the top ten tell-tale signs that your Gambian boyfriend is a love-cheat. For a more detailed look at this issue and over 20 pages of real case-studies and examples you can download my Gambian Love-Cheat Guide here, but for now, here is a summary of the ten things that you should look out for to determine if your Gambian boyfriend is a love-cheat!
Is my Boyfriend a Gambian Love-Cheat?
Here is my list of tell-tale signs that your Gambian boyfriend might be a love-cheat. How do I know this? From years of researching relationships with Gambian men!
1- Is there a Realistic Age Difference Between You and Your Man?
If it doesn’t happen in your home country, why would it happen in another? Whilst there are some instances where a twenty-something man might date a fifty-something year old women, lets face it-it’s rare.
If there is an unrealistic age gap between you and your Gambian lover, ask yourself why!
2- Is he Happy to be Apart from You?
Most loving couples want to spend time with each other. If he is making excuses for you not to visit him then you have to ask yourself why? Maybe he’s hiding another family over there and doesn’t want you to find out…
3- Is he willing for you to move to the Gambia?
If he won’t let you move to The Gambia but wants to move to the UK or another Western country with you, then ask why. Yes, it could be possible that he thinks that will offer the best quality of life for you both… or he could be after a visa.
4- Does he have a lot of sisters?
There are many stories where sisters turn out in face to be wives…. if he has a lot of sisters it might be worth questioning!
5- Does he need money for a funeral, to feed his family or other important issues?
Gambian love-cheats have a tendency to ask for money for big events such as funerals frequently. In reality, this is often their way of getting enough money to take care of their family at home (that you probably know nothing about).
6- Did he tell you he loved you very early in your relationship?
We’ve all seen Notting Hill, but lets be real- that’s just a movie! People don’t usually declare their undying love only a few days after meeting somebody. This is another tell-take sign that you might have a Gambian love-cheat on your hands!
7- Does he want to get married, despite not having known each other that long?
Likewise, marriage is not something that should be rushed. What difference would being married make anyway? Apart from him having rights to your assets, a visa and immigration…. hmmmm, this definitely rings alarm bells to me!
8- When you met him were you feeling lonely or vulnerable?
These men have a habit of praying on the vulnerable. Be careful. Ask your friends and family for their advice if you might not be thinking straight.
9- Could he be a professional ‘fraudster’?
Many of these men will be playing several women at once…. they are true professionals! It’s essentially a form of prostitution and these men are good at it… don’t be fooled!
10- Does he seem too good to be true?
If it seems too good to be true then unfortunately it probably is!
Do any of these ring true to you? Then you might just have a Gambian love-cheat on your hands! For more information and real life stories to help determine if your man is indeed a Gambian love-cheat, download my Gambian love-cheat guide here!
