The rise of dating scams reveals our endless capacity to hope | Rebecca Nicholson
Fraud officers are investigating 30 cases where people looking for partners have been scammed, often pawning jewellery and taking out loans as a result of the elaborate hoaxes. In a typical scam, the fraudster identifies potential victims through a dating site. He then tailors his personality to suit what the victim is looking for, for example a man in the army, and then finds a picture of someone in the military from the internet, which he will use in his profile.
A romance scam is a confidence trick involving feigning romantic intentions towards a victim, gaining their affection, and then using that goodwill to commit fraud. Fraudulent acts may involve access to the victim's money, bank accounts, credit cards, passports, e-mail accounts, or national identification numbers ; or forcing the victims to commit financial fraud on their behalf. Romance scammers create personal profiles using stolen photographs of attractive people for the purpose of asking others to contact them. This is often known as catfishing. Communications are exchanged between the scammer and victim over a period of time until the scammer feels they have connected with the victim enough to ask for money. These requests may be for gas money, bus or airplane tickets to visit the victim, medical or education expenses. There is usually the promise the scammer will one day join the victim in the victim's home.
You come in contact with a young Russian woman through the Internet, you have carefully read my anti-scam guide and have taken the necessary precautions: you asked for her personal details, you went through a local agency for email correspondence expenses and you have decided to go visit her in her country you yourself will rent a hotel room or apartment. You sometimes talk in person with her on the phone possibly with the help of a translator , everything is going perfectly. After a few letters she makes you understand that her income is very low and she is in a very bad financial situation. She does not ask you for money directly but you understand that a few dollars could greatly help her through this bad period. You know of course that you should never send money to a Russian woman if you want to avoid scams, but you tell yourself that you can easily find your correspondent in case she wants to scam you. You trust her though, and send her every month, "small money" between 50 and euros. These little amounts actually represent a considerable boon to your correspondent in Russia or Ukraine, where the average monthly wage is 70 euros in some smaller cities!! After a few months you speak with the girl about your next gathering and start to imagine beautiful romantic walks hand in hand, intimate dinners with candlelight in a restaurant etc
