Not everyone using online dating sites is looking for love. As if all that isn’t bad enough, romance scammers are now involving their victims in online bank fraud.
Scammers create fake online profiles using photos of other people — even stolen pictures of real military personnel. And they tug at your heartstrings with made-up stories about how they need money — for emergencies, hospital bills, or travel. 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.
And best of all, when we say we're free, we really mean free - no hidden charges. Unlike some other dating sites, we won't ask you for payment to send any messages or to search for your match.
Being divorced for several years, I have tried my hand at online dating, experimenting with a number of different sites, and I know from experience that for someone new to the process, it can be rather intimidating and confusing.
