Description

If an online love interest asks you for money, its probably a scam.

The Federal Trade Commission receives thousands of reports each year about romance scammers who create fake online relationships only to rob their victims.

Millions of Americans use dating sites, social networking sites and chat rooms to meet people, but scammers use them too, and eventually they ask for money.

The FTCs new infographic, developed with the American Bankers Association Foundation, lists common signs of online dating scams and how to handle them.

The Federal Trade Commission works to promote competition, and protect and educate consumers. You can learn more about consumer topics and file a consumer complaint online or by calling 1-877-FTC-HELP (382-4357).
