As the number of people looking to meet new people online grows, so does the opportunity for fraud.Some scam artists use bogus profiles to con the people they meet out of hundreds or thousands of dollars.These criminals—who also troll social media sites and chat rooms in search of romantic victims—usually claim to be Americans traveling or working abroad. While their most common targets are women over 40 who are divorced, widowed, and/or disabled, but every age group and demographic is at risk. You’re contacted online by someone who appears interested in you.He or she may have a profile you can read or a picture that is e-mailed to you.
Thanks Hello, I am a 44 year old woman with an MBA seeking an intelligent, kind hearted blind man in the DC metropolitan area. 4/12/2016 email: [email protected] would like our online dating service to work seamlessly for the non-sighted.
It is important for online users to be on the look-out for online dating and romance scams.
It can happen like this: “Maria” signed up for an online dating service and was contacted by “Andrew,” who claimed to be an American overseas on business in Australia.
