Millions of Americans use dating sites, social networking sites, and chat rooms to meet people. But scammers also use these sites to meet potential victims.
They create fake profiles to build online relationships, and eventually convince people to send money in the name of love.
Some even make wedding plans before disappearing with the money.
Don’t send money to tide someone over after a mugging or robbery, and don’t do anyone a favor by making an online purchase or forwarding a package to another country.
One request leads to another, and delays and disappointments will follow.
In the end, the money will be gone along with the person you thought you knew.
