Online dating scams: The FBI's alarming new warning
As if online dating wasn't hard enough. It's hard enough trying to decide if the person on the other end of the connection is someone you want to date, let alone determine if they are real. That's exactly why the FBI has launched "Operation Romeo and Juliet." To stop lonely love-seekers from sweetheart scams that lead to nothing but heartbreak and significant financial losses. In fact, these scams are such a significant problem that from October 2013 to February 2016 there were more than 17,600 reported victims suffering $2.3 billion in losses.
