Image of cupid and heartNot everyone using online dating sites is looking for love. Scammers create fake online profiles using photos of other people — even stolen pictures of real military personnel. They profess their love quickly. And they tug at your heartstrings with made-up stories about how they need money — for emergencies, hospital bills, or travel. Why all of the tricks? They’re looking to steal your money.

As if all that isn’t bad enough, romance scammers are now involving their victims in online bank fraud. Here’s how it works: The scammers set up dating profiles to meet potential victims. After they form a “relationship,” they come up with reasons to ask their love interest to set up a new bank account. The scammers transfer stolen money into the new account, and then tell their victims to wire the money out of the country. Victims think they’re just helping out their soulmate, never realizing they’re aiding and abetting a crime.  

Here are some warning signs that an online love interest might be a fake. They ask you to:

  • chat off of the dating site immediately, using personal email, text, or phone
  • wire money using Western Union or Money Gram
  • set up a new bank account

Did you know you can do an image search of your love interest’s photo in your favorite search engine? If you do an image search and the person’s photo appears under several different names, you’re probably dealing with a scammer. And if the person’s online profile disappears a few days after they meet you, that’s another tip-off.

Here’s the real deal: Don’t send money to someone you met online — for any reason. If your online sweetheart asks for money, you can expect it’s a scam.

Unfortunately, online dating scams are all too common. There may be tens of thousands of victims, and only a small fraction report it to the FTC. If this happens to you, please report it at — click on Scams and Rip-Offs, then select Romance Scams.

I was contacted October 2018 on a dating site Zoosk by a man named Patrick Aart. A very handsome older man who claimed to be the CEO of IncConstruction working on a secret government contract for the Pentagon and NSA. He even had a website I could visit as proof he was CEO of his own company. Patrick was a very smooth operator who claimed he lived in Connecticut. He would occasionally call on the phone and when I did a search the phone number was pinging off a tower in Wilmot, Conn. I found that to be confusing. He never directly asked me for money EXCEPT that he and I were to be buying a house in Spain together. All I had to do is pay half of the closing fees. As time went on we were getting emotionally close waiting for the day he would finish the contract he needed to fulfill by the end of this February. Occassionally he would mention that I had promised to pay for half of closing fees. In January he forwarded emails from a realtor in Malaga, Spain and I was to pick out the house I wanted most. He claimed he had used this realtor many times before when he moved from country to country on his work. We began having issues when I kept asking how much closing costs would be and he kept telling me that the realtor had not told him yet. Since he was supposed to be very nv well off I was always suspicious how he was going to ask me for money. Finally the day came that he told me closing costs were $100,000. But that he had talked him down to $89,000 and that half was my part to pay. I told him at that time that I was not sending any money unless I could put it directly into his hands. He said, of course, that is impossible because he could not leave the secret location. Patrick Aart had sent me a photo of a form from a bank in the Virgin Islands that showed how much money he had in an off shore account. It indicated almost $7 million. He asked me to delete the document as soon as I saw it and I did. He also had an email from the realtor in Spain saying they had received $394,???.00 in funds as partial down payment and that as soon as they received the information off of my passport the realtor and closing agent would finalize the sale of the house. I refuse d to divulge any information as sensitive as this to someone I did not know. He urged me to fulfill my promise and I frankly told him I did not recall ever making such a promise and he became very angry. I relented and sent Patrick back a message that I would like to verify that the realtor was viable and he blew up. I never had the kind of money he was asking so he urged me to take out a loan or mortgage my property or whatever it took to fulfill my promise. After a few days I finally told him that I would NEVER EVER send money to someone I could not see for myself. And for him to move on. At first he blocked my number but eventually I did hear from him because I kept sending him messages because I did have a hard time of letting go. I just am relieved thatnI did not have the kind of money he was asking for. I miss our talks and texting and I think of him every day. I think of the person he said he was and of the face I came to love. I am not sure how to post photos but I have 3 he sent. Please be aware and pray you dont fall victim to a financial loss because the hurt one feels for the emotional loss is pain enough for anyone. Thank you for reading and may God keep you protected.

I have been texting with Patrick Aart from Our Time for 2 weeks but refused to meet. My daughters said he was catfishing. I texted him, said he was catfishing and I was disappointed. I asked him to take a picture holding up a paper with my name so I could c him. HE REFUSED and hung up. The 3 pictures he posted were of someone very handsome. My friend found your comments and I blocked him. Thank you so much.

I am sorry you had to go through this experience. Today, I googled his name and Patrick Aart has set up what looks like a more legitimate web page for IConstruction. Still listing himself as CEO and if you search for him on Facebook it shows his name as Patrick van der Aart. Still no photo and only one friend who is a professional sports announcer who does not know a Patrick Aart. This guy is really good at casting doubt. Even when confronted he will deny deny deny. I posted the photos he claimed as his own on a Scammers website. Good luck and remember that the dating sites are crawling with scammers.

I was also talking to Patrick Aart, my daughter googled his name and found your blog. Thank you for posting this. We were talking for a couple of months, went along with this as he had not asked for money. Two days he sent me the pictures of the condo's in Spain and when I asked for the address, as we have friends in Spain, as they wanted to see where it was, he got very defensive. Told me not to contact him any more, which is fine with me. He also sent me poetry every morning, which some were great, some were a little much. I do have his pictures and plan to post them on a web site.

The Patrick Aart I talked with, until the end of June, had an accent as he was also Dutch. Told me he has a mother and daughter still living in Holland. I am still trying to post pictures. I had 3 pictures. First one was him in a tux, very good picture. Another one in a light colored shirt, a picture of his Conn. drivers license and then one in a black and white shirt. Says he has his own company and does contracts both in the USA and abroad, but could not disclose locations. We continued talking, usually calling me Babe, until I asked for the address of the places in Spain we were going to live at. I did send him this link when my daughter first found it and he is very good at denying that this is him. We started talking on email, with alot of questions of how we handle situations and then to texting.

Has anyone been hit by a Michael jnr Hilary? A diver on an oil rig in the North Sea, Scotland. Father died before he was born. Mother died of brain cancer when he was a baby. Grew up in an orphanage. Married 27 years. Wife died in an automobile accident 4 years ago. Raising a 12 yesr old daughter. I told him he should write a book and this would be a Lifetime movie for sure. We all need to wake up and not waste our time on such rubbish. These con artists know how to manipulate and pull our heartstrings. Beautiful, sweet, romantic... no one in this life time will ever fit the bill of what they make up. Naturally, they always fine, good looking men you just can’t resist. Wish there was a way we could let someone know there photos are being used all over the internet.

Im so mad at myself. I fell completely in love or was totally infactuated with what I think was a scammer. I was communicating with him for a month. I met him on he was korean went by by name Billy Riggs very professional looking claimed to be a civil engineer from Austin Tx had son living with caretaker in DC and a widow wife had died 4 years earlier. He was looking for a wife. We talked and chatted. He said he wished he had met me before his wife and always claimed to have flund his fufjre in me. He asked me to leave and go to hangouts. He was never available to meet always had an excuse. I was always questioning him and he would turn things around and make me feel guilty for questioning him. Then we made a date to finally meet he all of a sudden had to go out of country to acquire a big contract in saudia arabia and the calls and texts became almost non existetent. I demanded he let me know what was going on and then he said he had a big problem he was dealing with something about a license that he needed from DC but could not leave where he was because he had to present his proposal or lose millions on acquiring project. He asked me to go to DC get the package and mail to him. I told him I had no funds to go and he said ok. That was 3 days ago and I have yet to hear from him. Has anyone else had a korean man with same MO??

Something similar happened to me! But I didn't meet him on any dating site. A got a friend and he saw my picture on her Facebook account. And asked her to contact me because I was his soul mate , we exchange numbers and started talking every date! He pose a Chang Khang a Chinese man 51 y/o an engineer who lives in New York and widow with no children. He wanted me to become partners in a business deal and asked me for money to invest, right there I was spooked and told him that I didn't had the money for it. He became so furious about it. Then he told me he got bussines partners in Turkey and had lo leave for 6 months. When he got there he told me that he wanted to send me a package and gave me all the info on the tracking number and everything then I recieve an email saying the package was put on hold in Russia due to a tax clearance . And that I need it to pay 2,530 so my package will arrived in 24 HRS. He begged me to pay the money so I could get the package. I STARTED TO WONDER WHAT WAS GOING ON . AND THEN I discover everything. I know is hard BECAUSE YOU GET EMOTIONAL AND IN LOVED WITH THIS SCAMMERS!! ' BE AWARE, AND DONT LOOSE YOUR HEART AND MONEY!!

Mother-in-law love (not verified)
February 13, 2019
I believe my mother in law is being scammed. She received a FB request from a guy that lives in Toronto Canada. His profile pic is a middle age man in a white tux with a black bow. Gray hair, glasses and little facial hair. He has confessed his love and they r talking on Hangout now. Says he was married wife died in plane crash and he had a 16 year old son. He is looking for a woman to take care of him. My mother in law is 79 so I'm confused by this. He says he is in London working but lives in Canada and she thinks he does something with oil. Then he says he is very wealthy and will be coming down to Florida to buy a house and to see her. Now, he has asked her if he and his son can stay at her house and they r coming next month. If he was wealthy he wouldn't want to stay with her and get a hotel. Things don't add up. He never asked her for her age but says he is in love and wants to marry her. She is in lala land right now thinking all this is true. I'm hoping she hasn't given him any personal info but feel like she has. He said that he doesn't need to talk to anyone else on Facebook because he found the love he needed and asked her to get off Facebook and not to write anyone. He goes by the name Salah Chalheb (Christ Salah) had been on Facebook since April 2018. I can't find anything on this guy only two pics from his FB. Does anyone know how to search a pic or how to track where there at on Hangout? I'm nervous because my mother in law lives her her daughter and 2 kids and she is brining some strange guy to her house next month.

After looking at the cost of airfare he wanted me (or my children) to send him money for 1/2 of the airfare ($1,200). When I said no money would be sent he said we’d meet in January when airfares were cheaper. Then he said we would video chat...but camera needed fixing. He says “I want to fix it now”....never heard from him again. Lol

The sad reality is that it happens, and that it can happen to anyone. My online romance is a real person, we've even met, but, the guile of this long-distance love interest is to ask for money. Often several times each month. If not cash, then a Mobile Phone top-up. It's really bizarre behaviour, but it's explained away easily. Oh, Government pension does not cover my expenses. Life is not fair. The sad part news for me is that this person has a number of nice people to call on for help. Must be spending over £1000.00 per week. Chronic Alcoholic. There is nothing which is okay about this manipulative behaviour. If it were happening in front of my eyes, I would be finding other ways of helping this individual. The manipulation happens because I have been naieve about the true story. This person uses romance to pull me in. Is now in the jail

Oh my goodness yes. Except he has a 13 year old daughter lives here in my home state and immediately wanted to private text off the dating site. However the dating site does expire after 1 week so that part is true. But all of a sudden he was in Syria and his wife passed away. He shared something that was bothering him about a general who left him a bunch of money. I told him that wasn't believable. I'd be interested to find out what else he has told you. And what his phone number is and email

I have been communicating with someone on Instagram for a few weeks now, and he has always seemed off to me. He never asked me for anything, but to love someone in 2 days is not normal. I never said I loved him back, just that I loved “his spirit.” He says he’s an orphan, his mother (adoptive?—whatever) is dead, and he has a 2 year old daughter whose mother died in childbirth. His “cousin” happens to be stationed with him in Afghanistan. Which would make him a very lucky unlucky person. I think he uses the cousin profile to help validate his primary one, which I told him from the start I didn’t believe. Then the “cousin” introduced herself. Thankfully, I’m still in love with my ex and was unable to develop any feelings at all for this fake guy. I have lost no money, I have no hurt feelings. But I was curious enough to Google fake Instagram profiles, because I’m tired of his gushy love messages every day and thought he just can’t be real because no one is this lame— and I found this. I only posted my story here along with everyone else’s because the “cousin” communicating with me too is a little different, but still fishy. She texts the exact same way he does. They are from Chicago, but their English is not quite right. You’ll notice if you see it. Also, he wasn’t even able to get his name right. The last name on his Army uniform is Morgan. When I asked his whole name, he said it’s Andrew Morgan Olivia. I do notice that in one of his pics, this guy has a tattoo of his child’s name and birthdate. The real person apparently has a daughter named Olivia. Olivia is obviously not his last name. Another reason I lost nothing here, including my feelings. I can’t love a liar. And for the first time in a long time, I’m thankful to still be in love with my ex, the main reason I couldn’t love Morgan or fall for his story. I’m so sorry you all had to go through all of this, and that so many of you lost so much. Peace and blessings.

Met this guy on dating site, he is 66 years old, white male, goes by Franklin or Frank B. We have been communicating via email, then by text, only spoken to him 2 x on the phone. He has a very pronounced "dutch" accent, even though claims has lived in the US for over 40 years. He sent me picks with his son, who is an adult, but looks younger in the picture. He claims son lives in California, and he lives in Texas. I checked the internet and he shows up as active on Lidenkin (business owner - Engineer), also checked MyLife and he also show up there, and son and other's show up under his name. He also sent me his website of his business., so needless to say it all seems legit (right). Around a week ago, he sends me a text that a proposal he submitted was accepted and is off to Canada to make a presentation, next thing I know he is texting me saying that he won the proposal and is off to Kuwait for a drilling project. (all good right). Well he did send me a copy of the contract with Kuwait Petroleum, signed, and sealed. Then 2 days later we text and he told me that he can not get all of his equipment there in Kuwait (I don't know if he understands that I researched and Kuwait is a drilling nation, and all types of equipment is available there). He told me that needs $55,000 to obtain the equipment from the US, that he has $39,000 is short $20,000 and how much can I afford to lend him. I said not a penny. He did not mention it again. I referred him to call his son for the monies, which according to him he did, but the son could only give him $9000 because of family responsibilities. A day went by then again he asked for 7,500 which he said was short, again I said not a penny. Yesterday 2/16 he text again, hi my love, baby, sweetheart are his words of choice, after pleasantries he says that he is not doing well, as he does not have any personal money, and needless to say he asked for $4,700. I did not reply. Last night again he sends a text and says "have you been able to think about the money" which I did not reply. Today I sent him an email letting him know that I am on to him, but if what I was thinking was not true, that I am sorry. Anybody else have encountered this person, is he a scammer or just a guy on hard luck, needless to say I will not send monies to any one. I hope I made the right decision.

Met a guy going by the name, Thomas Parsley from Meetmindful. Said he was a widower had a daughter, and an only child and his parents were dead He sent me flowers, and a cheap ring that was supposed to be some kind of engagement ring...I guess. Anyway, I haven't communicated with him in a long time. I did not respond to his proposal and he hasn't contacted me since. I assume he has other women on his hit list. Now another guy requested friendship on Facebook. His credentials are almost identical to Thomas Parsely. Only this guy's name is Jimy Benadictus ! Lol..strange last name, huh? Incidently, both men claim to be wierd...I am going to unfriend and block this guy. The other thing these 2 guys have in common is they claim to be wealthy. Thomas' dad was supposed to have been in the oil business, and that's how he could be in the Army but have loads of money. He emailed some documents that appeared so official. The documents appeared to be a financial statement that showed him having 7 million dollars credited to him. He then said the bank had frozen his account, but could I please buy some gift cards and scratch off the pin numbet and tell him the numbers. His excuse was that the money was somehow going to benefit both of us !! Haha. Now this guy , Benedictus himself is in oil !! What a crock !! And a crook ! Don't fall for it. If it's too good to be true, it is.

Contacted me on LinkedIn. Similar story. From Norway, daughter Sharon 8 yrs. Divorced, just needs a friend. To me sounded like more than one person writing. Never got to ask for any money as it was fishy to me so i removed him from my contacts. Profile picture in a hotel I think.

I’m sorry I didn’t see your post sooner. Also met him through LinkedIn. Said he was interested in getting to know be better. Goes by the name Jonathon Albret, from Norway, divorced, has a daughter Sharon who is 8. I looked up the company he said he owned, doesn’t exist. No phone and then he took his LinkedIn profile down. Handsome and a smart dresser. Luckily he didn’t ask me for money.

Does he go by Robert Kokholm? Or Scott Kokholm I’m desperate to know. Have you seen pictures?
