Before forwarding the complaints to the appropriate agencies, IC3 collates and analyzes the data—looking for common threads that could link complaints together and help identify the culprits. Here are some tips on how to avoid becoming a victim of an online dating scam.

The Nigerian dating scams target the lonely and vulnerable.

They also tend to target middle-aged people looking for stable relationships.

The rationale is that this type of person is likely to be more desperate, gullible and financially stable.

He may also send you checks to cash since he’s out of the country and can’t cash them himself, or he may ask you to forward him a package. You were targeted by criminals, probably based on personal information you uploaded on dating or social media sites.

The pictures you were sent were most likely phony lifted from other websites.

So you send assured the requests won’t stop there.

Millions of Americans visit online dating websites every year hoping to find a companion or even a soulmate.


In reality, the scammers are Africans from Nigeria and Ghana.

In another recently reported dating extortion scam, victims usually met someone on an online dating site and then were asked to move the conversation to a particular social networking site, where the talk often turned intimate.

Victims were later sent a link to a website where those conversations were posted, along with photos, their phone numbers, and claims that they were “cheaters.” In order to have that information removed, victims were told they could make a payment—but there is no indication that the other side of the bargain was upheld.
