Scammers will lure the victim in by appearing seemingly attractive and engaging in conversations stating just the right thing to woo their match.
Nationwide, USA (PRWEB) August 26, 2013
Over 40 million people stated that they have tried online dating and internet scammers are targeting this multi-billion industry daily. 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. However, 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 that their online date sends or wires 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” again.
