How? Do they simply ask for money or do they trick you or do they hack you or do they simply identifying themselves as prostitutes and give you a price?

Some are actually the women in the photo. They'll make friends with you, then explain that they are in some horrible situation and need your $ help.
Others are not the women in the photo, and will find reasons not to go on cam, but will still develop some financial emergency or need $ help getting internet access so you can see their pics, etc. etc.
Some will direct you to $ porn sites.
Some are guys who want to see you naked and/or turned on.

I think that's one of the reasons that certification requires two pictures of you, one clothed and one nude. That makes it slightly harder for somebody to grab a picture of the Internet and say it's them.

How difficult is it to find two pictures on the internet of someone dressed then undressed?

Gotta be holding the sign in each. WIth todays editing software, it can be done, but is it worth the trouble? Another reason to restrict access to non-paid members.

Is it that difficult to imagine what those sketchy profiles want with your information? Believe me, nothing good. Be careful and responsible when online.

One other routine they will use is the one that they want to move to your area so they will ask you to let them wire transfer money to your bank account so they can use that to buy a house in your area. Once they have that, they will then proceed to empty out everything in your account, and disappear.

In other words, sometimes they dont directly ask you for money, they make it sound like they want you to help them protect or move their money, and once they get your account information they then take all of your money...
