They typically prey on Asian women because of the stigma of being unmarried after 30 for example. The Vietnamese lady was a professor, 34 years old but had increasing pressure from parents and siblings to find a husband. 

That, and middle aged women on facebook. My friend and mother have both been targeted. So have I, even though I'm not even 30 yet. These kinds of scams can only work with desperate, lonely women whose husbands left them, and women who don't speak enough english to know that an american pilot never says things like "hello DEAR (what are you, Mrs. Doubtfire?).... I contacting u for marriage..." Speaking like a 14 year old, and with bad grammar.... Sure, American pilot... lol Sad thing is, the targeted women are mostly not that strong in English so they have no clue about these little cues saying that the guy is not who he claims to be, and are so desperate that they are happy enough to have the "attention of a good looking western guy", giving them the hope of being loved and taken care of again

Mean while millions of Thai scammers and typing out and sending their latest email regarding a sick buffalo, a mother in hospital, dog that got ran over etc etc...

Meanwhile a whole army of Brits, Canadians and Americans are in Thailand-based boiler rooms cold-calling pensioners in Australia, Europe and elsewhere tricking them into investing their entire life savings in non existent shares.

Yet a significant hard core of farangs act like they're better than others and that only people from "lesser" regions and countries come here to commit crime.
