Relationships can bring joy and love, but online dating and sweetheart scams can cause problems for romance seekers.
Online dating offers many options to people looking for relationships, but it’s important to read the website’s terms and conditions before signing up.
While a victim without financial resources may seem undesirable, scammers will still attempt to use their deceptive tricks to milk them for all they’re worth.
In some cases, they even succeed in getting their victims to allow them to move in rent-free, hand over their social security checks or make risky financial moves, such as taking out a reverse mortgage, in order to get their hands on some sort of assets or income.
Scammers prefer to use the images, names and profiles of soldiers as this usually inspires confidence, trust and admiration in their female victims.
