Report a dating scammer

31 Jul

While the case was remarkable for its magnitude, when it comes to so-called “romance scams,” it still represents just the tip of the iceberg.According to the FBI, romance scams and similar confidence scams cost consumers more money than any other kind of Internet fraud.In 2016, the last year for which data is available, consumers lost more than 0 million this way.We use 100% of these fees to fund our testing programs.Around 7.8 million UK adults used online dating sites in 2016, up from just 100,000 in 2000.

Serious fraudsters sometimes even create further fake profiles and use them to be rude to you, all to make the main fake profile seem more desirable.

And it’s not just particularly vulnerable people who fall victim either.

This makes it hard for the victim to do due diligence.
