Asking for money before they’ve met you is a telltale sign of a romance scammer and should set alarm bells ringing.It’s common for romance scammers to pose as a soldier serving in the military as this gives them a good excuse as to why they can’t meet you in person. If you’re dating someone who claims to be in the military, you can offer to give them a call, organise a video chat or send them a letter as they should have a number, internet connection and mailing address.If you’ve been scammed for money from someone you met online, inform the website immediately. You should also report it to Action Fraud, the UK’s national fraud and crime reporting centre.Dating websites usually aren’t liable for losses you incur while using them, unless you can argue that the service wasn’t provided with reasonable care and skill, or there were checks the website said it would carry out and didn’t. For example, make sure the profile picture doesn’t look different to their description of themselves. Has your ‘date’ told you they are university educated, but their English is very poor?We asked 1,000 dating-website users how they identify fake profiles, and they told us they are suspicious if: Half of respondents also said that they trust their gut feeling when identifying a fake profile.If you’re talking to someone you’ve contacted online, be careful not to share your personal information.

We would advise you to never send money to anyone you meet through an online dating website, no matter how convincing they appear to be.And you certainly shouldn’t wire money to anybody, as there’s no audit trail.It’s like handing over cash – you won’t be able to get it back if it turns out to be a scam.Romance scammers who are just looking after your money can appear desperate if you don’t send it straight away, and their emails or calls will become more persistent, direct or even aggressive.And if you do send money, they will just keep asking you to send more, as they will view you as an ‘easy target’.
