Dating Scam Investigation

Dating or romance scams occur when a cyber criminal adopts a fake online identity to gain a victim’s trust. The cyber scammer then uses the illusion of a romantic or new relationship to manipulate and steal money from the victim, typically claiming a sad story or asking for emergency funds. Cyber criminals who carry out romance scams are experts at what they do and will seem genuine, caring, and believable. Con artists are present on most dating and social media sites. All online dating apps are a target such as Tinder, Hinge, Grinder and many more.
