Online Dating Scammers tricks to steal your heart and money

Aug 28 '18, 12:22PM | By Onur Türk

Not everyone using online dating sites is looking for love. Scammers create fake online profiles using photos of other people


— even stolen pictures of real military personnel. They profess their love quickly. And they tug at your heartstrings with made-up stories about how they need money


— for emergencies, hospital bills, or travel. Why all of the tricks? They’re looking to steal your money.


As if all that isn’t bad enough, romance scammers are now involving their victims in online bank fraud. Here’s how it works: The scammers set up dating profiles to meet potential victims. After they form a “relationship,” they come up with reasons to ask their love interest to set up a new bank account. The scammers transfer stolen money into the new account, and then tell their victims to wire the money out of the country. Victims think they’re just helping out their soulmate, never realizing they’re aiding and abetting a crime.


Here are some warning signs that an online love interest might be a fake. They ask you to:


chat off of the dating site immediately, using personal email, text, or phone

wire money using Western Union or Money Gram

set up a new bank account


Did you know you can do an image search of your love interest’s photo in your favorite search engine? If you do an image search and the person’s photo appears under several different names, you’re probably dealing with a scammer. And if the person’s online profile disappears a few days after they meet you, that’s another tip-off.


Here’s the real deal: Don’t send money to someone you met online — for any reason. If your online sweetheart asks for money, you can expect it’s a scam.
