Here's the overview of Adhrann's scamming guide: Adhrann advises people following his guide to take care in the way they set up their dating site profile.
They should have a burner phone, he says (a disposable phone that can be used for temporary tasks and then discarded).
Up until now, scammers were instructed to turn down any requests for a Skype call, but if the target insists, then they should ask him to pay for a webcam.
Scammers are told to use a female partner for the video call part of the process, but there are guidelines on what they should look like: If a scammer is successful here, and managed to con the target out of money for a webcam, or other small amounts, then they may attempt the riskiest part of the process, known as the "pause." Scammers are instructed to stage an altercation over webcam, and then cease contact.
Adhrann's guide says that scammers should "look on the Internet for a bunch of pics of a cute girl" and select someone who is "not a top model, but a normal sexy girl." To find photos, scammers can buy sets of photographs of young women, often through shady forums frequented by hackers.
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.
Dating sites are, thankfully, getting better at spotting who is using their service to send thousands of spam messages.
So how do you know if someone is trying to scam you?
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.
The author claims that someone who operates the scam can earn up to ,000 (£9,700) every month if they operate the dating scam full-time.
It details how scammers operate fake dating site profiles in order to con men out of money.
The guide isn't available for free, in fact, it was being sold for Bitcoins on a deep web marketplace.
