No scammers dating sites

Sluppick has found it’s usually those who are middle-aged and older – and an equal number of men and women – who tend to fall victim to scammers.

“The victims are legitimately in love, legitimately care for this person. They’re thinking emotionally, not cognitively.” In some cases, victims have bought wedding dresses, engagement rings or made wedding plans with someone they’ve never met, Nofziger says.

“The victims often don’t have doubts because scammers are so good at nurturing relationships,” says Todd Kossow, director of the Midwest region of the Federal Trade Commission, which collects scam reports.

Other tricks include getting you to smuggle drugs or launder money unknowingly.

“They get the victim in a fog so she’s no longer thinking clearly.” It’s not unusual for scammers to claim they’re in the military. Even senior Department of Defense leaders have had their identities stolen by these fraudsters.

If you’re already smitten, you may wire funds to the scammer – no questions asked.

“They are caught in the scammer’s web,” Nofziger says.

Victims include everyone from doctors and lawyers to CEOs and cops, Sluppick says.
