Scammer is sick or has a sick parent or child, or is stuck in a country (Nigeria or Russia usually) and they need your help.
Their money, credit card, and ID has been lost or stolen and they have been arrested and need to pay a lawyer so they will be allowed to leave the country.

Most dating sites are full of them, and many sites don't bother to get rid of scammers - because scammers look good...
scammers use model photos, have nice profiles, and that attracts more members.
The scammer cannot afford it, but offers to drive to meet you (or take a plane or bus), and requests money to help pay for this.
After you send the money, you never hear from them again - or you receive ongoing excuses to delay the trip and more requests for money.
They may want you to buy something with the money and send to them - or their trip falls through and they ask you to send the money back.
