    In my chat with strangers or even those that I thought I had known for some time, I notice that they have some strange behaviors such as they stare blank at a certain direction, not to me, and their facial expression gradually gets serious, their breathing gets faster and they smoke so fast, their eyes look sleepy and they don't hear anymore what you say; to me they look scary.

      It is thinking that criminals always look like movies villains that leads so many people to get scammed.

    I'm not sure that you can group such people. In fact some of history's worst criminals were classed as highly charismatic people.

    Maybe the people you are talking to could also be nervous, socially shy, scared, not feeling well or have a host of other reasons for the way they are acting.

    As for online criminals, many people who would never go and kill or rob or be involved in any other criminal activity feel a power rush in the anonymity the internet provides and may get a rush out of doing things they shouldn't.

      I notice these behavior in these two people, when I asked them, they have similar answers..."I am not doing anything" and "you are accusing me"; they just look like they black out for some minutes.
      Why I had thought they might be criminals in real life is because they look or behave like a psycho despite trying their best to appear decent to me. I think they relapse into their true nature in the long time that I had known them. Any way, I won't be seeing them,it's just that they really look weird to me when they are in that "trance" appearance.

        Maybe you are sending them to sleep ??  big_smile

        The usual reason for this type of behaviour I expect is that they are doing something else entirely.  When my son is talking to me and gets that way it is because he is playing online games and the other screen has his whole attention.

          I really think that they are doing other things and that is why I "ran away" but they would follow and asked why I leave them and "did I do anything wrong to you?" such questions, I just say I am scared of how they change their expressions and behaviour...really scary.

        Maybe they have a mental disorder or just weird mannerisms. Seems odd to make assumptions.

          Nouveau Skeptic,
          You're right, I just know that I won't chat using a cam anymore to avoid making wrong assumptions.

    You can always tell the internet criminals. They promise to help you become millionaires overnight.

      Hollie Thomas,
      I am with you, such too good to be true stuff are not for me. Actually I was reading about "serial killers" and how their minds work and this is perhaps the reason why I think these men I was chatting look like criminal to me. We had been chatting every now and then in a year now, just talking politics and life as a whole but they looked alright until I noticed just lately their change...I think I am getting paranoid.
