Scammers take advantage of people looking for romantic partners, often via dating websites, apps or social media by pretending to be prospective companions. They play on emotional triggers to get you to provide money, gifts or personal details.
Dating and romance scams may also use email to make contact and they have even been known to telephone their victims as a first introduction. These scams are also known as ‘catfishing’
