With over 40 million people stating that they have tried online dating, internet scammers targeting this multi-billion industry is increasing daily. The practice of “catfishing” is increasing, where a potential online date falsely represents themselves in an online profile and through conversations. While it is common that most online profiles overstate one’s attributes, many profiles are scams to cause an individual to “lend” money to a potential suitor.
Online dating scams have been around since the conception of sites such as eHarmony.com and Match.com. Although, the recent rise scams have turned from little white lies to fraudulent activity. Scammers will lure the victim in by appearing seemingly attractive and engaging in conversations stating just the right thing to woo their match. Eventually, the scammer will request their online date to send or wire them money. Generally the online date will tell the victim a sob story about their financial situation. The victim will wire or send money orders to the online scammer—never to hear from the “online date” date again.
