Now, with online dating websites and apps, it has become so easy to find a partner or in this case, a match – even from a different country if you wish.You can judge if you like the person by looking at their picture and also read their profile details to see if they’re “your type”.
A romance scam is a confidence trick involving feigned romantic intentions towards a victim, gaining their affection, and then using that goodwill to commit fraud.
Fraudulent acts may involve access to the victims' money, bank accounts, credit cards, passports, e-mail accounts, or national identification numbers or by getting the victims to commit financial fraud on their behalf.
Back then, it’s victory when phone numbers were exchanged, which then led on to conversations to get to know each other to actually going on a date to get to know the person further.
Unfortunately, all these would have to take place in the location or country you reside in – flying in and out of the country can be costly!
