Not everyone using online dating sites is looking for love. As if all that isn’t bad enough, romance scammers are now involving their victims in online bank fraud. You can block them on your phone, email and social media.
Scammers create fake online profiles using photos of other people — even stolen pictures of real military personnel. And they tug at your heartstrings with made-up stories about how they need money — for emergencies, hospital bills, or travel. Here’s how it works: The scammers set up dating profiles to meet potential victims. But I have still be very much scammed as far as it sounds from this site.

Communication is typically strictly limited to online, and over time the scammer gains the confidence of the victim, often declaring their love for them.
