According to the attorney general, the con artists will ask for wire transfers or money orders.To avoid “romance” scams: • Research someone you meet online; don’t rely solely on what that person tells you.Interestingly, the AARP says that men fall victim to these scams more often, but that women are more likely to report the scam.The profiles of online dating scammers can exhibit some clear signs that something is off—you just need to know what to look for.

People are often ashamed to come forward and admit that they’ve been duped.“Scam artists will pretend to be someone they’re not,” said Ohio Attorney General Mike De Wine, in a news release on Thursday.“They’ll start to communicate with a person online, and they’ll forge an emotional connection.Scammers also often list themselves as widowed (especially with a child), self-employed, or working overseas.

They might also say that they live near you, but that they’re away; they could be in another country on a trip or for work, but they’ll almost certainly be somewhere far away where you can’t meet them.

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.
