Love Is In The Air and So Are The Scams

Did you know that romance #scams affect thousands of people every year? Don’t get scammed by a con artist Casanova! Millions of Americans use online dating and social networking sites to meet people, but scammers also use these sites. The average loss per person during a romance scam is about $10,000 and some victims have lost up to $500,000. Be cautious if you have a new #love interest that claims to be a US citizen living or working in another country. Don’t send or wire money to someone you’ve just met over the internet. Love is in the air and so are the #scams. Report romance scams to local law enforcement or contact the CBI ID Theft & Fraud Unit.
