Online Dating Scam
There is no denying that we now live in a much more virtual world than we used to, which means that we do lots of things online rather than face to face. This includes shopping, socialising, ordering food and even dating.
Online dating has increased in popularity of late and it is a way to meet new people that many are adopting. In the most part, online dating can be fantastic, it allows you to get to know people and to explore your dating options without even having to leave your house.
That said, there are also some negatives to online dating and one of these things are online dating scams. You wouldn’t like to think that someone would knowingly scam using online dating as their go-to, but it happens. There are people out there who are looking to take advantage of men and women who are simply hoping to find a new partner to spend their life with.
Often, they will pretend to be someone who they are not and take their time to “groom” their victims, dropping subtle hints of their need for money, before accepting an offer of a loan or to borrow money from them. Which of course, is never paid back.
