Looking to start a new relationship? For some, that may mean meeting a new love interest online.
Millions of Americans use dating sites, social networking sites, and chat rooms to meet people. And many forge successful relationships. 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. Unfortunately, an online love interest who asks for money is almost certainly a scam artist. Below are some tips to identify a real romance versus a scammer cruising for a target. Please share this information with others.
Victims may be embarrassed to talk about their experiences, but you can help. It would be great if these could be generated in an easily printed format. I work at a credit union - and have member's falling for these types of scams regularly. This would be nice to get in their hands. We have a pdf of the infographic that you can print and share. Thank you.
The man who scammed me money three years ago, contact me again, he said he was sorry and will repay the money to me. Of course, I know he is lying, what should I do? My case was reported to police three years ago, but finally closed file by police for further investigation impossible. If you were scammed by someone, and you get a call about a refund, that call is probably also a scam.

I have been contacted by a German man using the name John Aleksio. Please tell me some of the things he has been telling you. He suppose to be an architect.
As soon as we started chatting he had a big job in Turkey. There has been one thing after another. I have denied anything he ask for but he still continues to call from a turkey. He suppose to finish job this week than come back to states. That is a lie. Don't believe it. I experienced it before. They will wait for you to send money. Then you are done. There will be no trace of that man.

He said he fall in love with me after some day chatting. I also feel love him because he all say very nice words to me. He asked me to call him but then he say just call, not video call.
We chat and call everyday. Sometime he asked me about my job and internet banking, or whether the bank is opened or not during covid restriction. He only have so he have to borrow. I realized that he would be a scam so i did not send him. He said i have no human heart to help when he is in trouble. I said I never send money to a person just meet online. He know my gmail.

Said he's in Brazil on oil rig. Started asking for Google play cards. I pleaded that I couldn't give up my life savings being a single grandmother raising 2 grandkids ony own. He said as soon as his company pays him he will give me money back. Life like that really sucks.
He is from Europe originally. His name is Mark Dexter. I had a gentleman get a hold of me on plenty of fish and he began talking to me and asked me to go to Google hang out which I did and he talked and sweet talk to me for eight or nine months and never asked me for money but sweet talk to me to the point that I offered to him and he said he was paid in gold in the UK gold bars And he asked to ship it to my address and the US even talk to my daughter on the phone and said he had two girls and that he left me that it just went all out and ended up breaking it off with him because I felt that this was not real and I was going to help him ship this so-called gold bars to the United States but he 24 yo Dallas Texas desperately needs your help me some fake s from the shipping placeAnd he was German and his name was William Smith but that could probably be his real name or not if anybody has had this same experience please let me know.
I was told a familiar story by a Sgt. He asked if he could ship it to my address but the parcel was held in Turkey Customs for not honoring shipping instructions. I did not send any gift card and now he disappeared on hangouts after claiming he still loves me and would chat later. He makes the person feel bad about not helping him. Have been in a relationship with a guy who calls himself Harry Mayer, he sent me a friend request on fb from there we went to hangouts 8 months ago.
I really fell for this guy. I fell in love with a handsome man who is in Afghanistan in the Army. He is an orthopedic surgeon and has been sending me texts from Hangout three to four times a week for about a month now. He was very fast to profess his love. He told me about money he earned that he hadn't received from the UN and needed money to retrieve the package.
He asked me to help and that I would receive the money back. I paid for a UN diplomat to bring me the package and he was very grateful. Today the UN agent calls me asking for 10, dollars to change ownership of the package to me because of customs problems. I told agent to contact the doctor. The doctor asks for my help again and I would get money back. I cut all communication with these people. I feel it's a scam.
Live and learn people. For the past four months he has been perfect. Yes, agree. Anyone know why they asking my banksome one transfer the money to my and then I transferred back to his ? It sounds like the man I have been talking with for 3 weeks. He says he is an engineer on an oil platform, in the Gulf of Mexico. He says there was a big explosion, two men injured, drill broken. Sound familiar? He wanted me to agree to let his Cutts bank trans. I did not give him any money. I ended the relationship yesterday. I told him in an that I knew he was a criminal and that I knew he was using me as a mark.
