Dating site scammers date scams

12 Oct

When you think you’ve met the perfect partner through an online dating website or app, but the other person is using a fake profile to form a relationship with you.

Unfortunately, scammers will often use noble causes such as charities to get you to transfer money.They may have arranged to visit you, but need money to pay for the flight or visa.They may tell you everything has been booked but their ticket has been stolen, and you need to send money quickly to get them on the next flight.Alternatively they may prey on your sympathies, telling you a family member or someone else they are responsible for is ill and they need money for medical treatment.Once you send them money, the fraudsters will keep coming back and invent new reasons to send them more.
