Currently, more than 40% of single men used an app or a dating site in the last month, says Global Web Index.There are dozens of dating apps available; some operate globally, while others only work in some countries that have greater acceptance of them.These impersonators promise to identify who the scammer is and for an additional fee have them arrested and bring them to justice.Unfortunately, this is just another continuation of the scam, and the private investigator may even be the original online love interest.There have been reports that some phony sweethearts are impersonating soldiers with the goal of pulling the heartstrings of patriotic women of all ages.Others ask their victims to join in fraudulent business ventures, most involving reshipping schemes where merchandise purchased with stolen credit card numbers is sent to the victims who are asked to forward it to their love interest abroad.Another type of common deception is sextortion, which usually begins as a normal relationship between two people who begin to know each other until the scammer tries to take the conversation off the dating platform, such as, for example, to Whats App.
