We hope this site will save someone life, money and serves as PRE-WARNING TO ALL ONLINE DATING MEMBERS before they venture into online dating in various site. Please leave comments below, here is a photo of the man he said he was.In August, a British man was sent to jail after defrauding two women of over £300,000 (5,300) through online dating sites.He had convinced them that he was a diplomat and that a US marine general had fallen in love with them, causing one woman to pawn jewelry, empty her life savings, sell her car, and take out loans to help this general move to the UK. In 2011, the Internet Crime Complaint Center estimated that the online dating scamming “industry” was worth over million, but it’s likely much higher than that, due to the difficulty of making a good estimate.
Anyone can be the target and victim of these scams—men, women, young, old, gay, straight, white, black, Asian, Hispanic… But the FBI states that women who are “over 40, divorced, widowed, and/or disabled” are prime targets for scammers.
Like all online criminals, they can hide extremely well. You can, and should of course, file a police report, but normally our local police has no jurisdictions in other continents.
Unless their real details show up by putting their photo into Tin eye, or they're already on the forum then there's no way to track them down.
