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.

Robert Kokholm says his brother Scott died last year. Robert and I have been off and on for two years. I’m not sure why. He asks for something and I say no , her says ok. No problem. He is cute and sexy. From Denmark. I wish I knew someone else that knows him.

I have been talking to a man named Anthony Smith for the last 3 months. He told me he was a soldier in South Africa.he gave me the same spiel about need money for gold and I sent him money for iTune cards and something about gold. Now I'm out of $5,000 and I found out after reading yours I was talking to the same man so he is a scammer I have reported him to the FBI and to the army and they said to me that it was all a scam that the real soldier has been notified and his wife and kids and him are all disturbed about all this. he is a scammer that is just trying to get what he can get from us so whatever you do block him cuz he will not stop and delete everything you have of him cuz he can HAC your stuff.I quit talking to him about a week ago and I still get messages from him so I blocked and deleted everything of him he has many aliases I have found out. Good luck. I hope he gets what's coming to him

I’ve been talking with a Andy Nash for about 5 months . He is divorced with a 13 year old son and his mother live in New Jersey. I met him on Skout then after a month he asked to talk on hangouts. He hadn’t asked for anything until December, at that time he wanted iTunes cards an every since he’s asked for cards. He wanted me to start a bank account so his pay could be deposited into it monthly. Then I started having money problems he did send me money to help me. But now I’m struggling again and he wants me to send him money for authorization and process fee and he was sending more money to me. I have spoke and texted with his mother also I was suppose to go visit with her in a couple weeks. So, I’m not sure. Does anyone else know him.

I have just found out that my mother maybe has been fooled by the same scam. This time a engineer working near the UK on oil rigs. Going by the name Alex Henry. Has been messaging my mother for months. Asking her to transfer money via Western Union. She did! £900. Luckily it got flagged up and stopped. My mother is a vulnerable woman. He has asked her to receive packages and pay the £600!!! Delivery fee! I'm glad she has finally spoken to me about this. She shown me a picture of the guy. I do not have the picture to hand but a bald muscular guy around 40 ish. He said he has a son in boarding school. Unfortunately she has deleted most the messages so I can't see everything. But he is still messaging her. It started on Facebook then he asked her to change to hangouts. Ive asked her to continue to speak to him if he messages her so I can get as much info as possible. But she has promised not to send any more money. Does this sound familiar to any body else's experience on here?

Yes, we're in the same boat, i bet your mother is lying about not contacting him again. U can see her hangouts history in her gmail, iv done the same. Sad thing is, im in the philippines, and my grandmother is the victim(she's a us citizen) and i don't know what to do after all the convincing i did to her. She's going back to US and will be sending the scammer according to what i saw from her history, 40 grand us dollars. I don't know what to do, im in the verge of breaking. The scammer got hold of her ssn, pension every month is secretly sent to her by my grandma, she lies to me about it all the time. No agency here in our place that would hear me out, as this is denied by my grandmother.

I was scammed by a guy going by the name of George toni Larsson, said his polish and his mother was from south africa. We met on an online paid dating sight called seniors50. Im from Australia and he said he was living in sydney and on 5 year working visa . He worked as a marine engineer on a cruise ship, but landed a job in sydney working on the dock. We were to meet in sydney then an emergency happened and he was required to join the ship to London. We continued our relationship which grew. A very smooth sophisticated scam which i was sucked in good an proper. The actual photos turned out to be on an entertainer in usa, very convincing, many photos, but of course all stolen. Still trying to find out who the entertainer is whose photos he stole, have been able to identify others in the photos. This continued for 12 months and I lost lot of money.

I've been chatting with one guy today whom I met in a dating site whose name in Sargeat Lucas Howard claimed to be a military soldier and was currently deployed in Syria. He rarely replied using his gmail account bcs of his hectic schedule, did not ask 4 money yet .But after fews days, he profess his undying love with poetic quotes on it. LOL. I wonder how could he felt that he is in love already for infact we didnt even talk that much. He sent 5 photos and tried to check on google image but did not find any similar photos. Could he be a real soldier and not a scammer??? If any one here is currently chatting with this guy, please let me know. Thanks much!

Sorry but if you're an MD and been going to school all of these years your English and grammar better be spot on

He's a italian with a raspy voice and very charming. always send photos in his suits. well he had me feel sorry for him by needing money to rent some equipment to complete the job so he wouldn't lose the contract. that was 1,500. then when the contract was over he was suppose to travel from norway to london threw to dfw. he even sent a half pic of a boarding pass showing the name. and then he said his bag was switch with a drug bag and was in a holding cell was released and missed his flight and needed money for a new flight. i sent 900.00 and he was supposed to land the next day. he was a no show. then he kept asking for i tune cards saying his phone is acting up. i brought 2 cards previously but he was very persistent for another card and that's when i google the i tune card scam. i didn't send the 3rd card another time i sent 800.00 that i couldnt afford. he went by the name of Antonio age 55 he sent a pic of a passport and a pic of his check from the contract claiming they wouldn't cash it down there because of documents. this man really had me going. sent me his marriage pic, and son pic. i feel so ashamed that i let my guard down. he even sent me a valentines day gift. ladies becareful because your heart can be your worst enemy.

Anyone knows Sergeant Lukas Howard?who claimed to be a US army whom I met in a dating site and was currently deployed in Syria. Didn't asked for money as he rarely replied using his gmail account & not his military email acct. He profess his love to me after 5 days of replying on his mail and he uses poetic lines and Godly words of wisdom. I just wonder how fast he fell in love for in fact we didn't even meet and talk that much. LOL. He even sent me his photos of him & tried to check it using image reverse search but did not find any similar photos. Could he be a real US soldier as he replied very seldom and no money involve yet or He could be a possible scammer??

I met another guy thru dating site & his name is Jason Samuel Parker, looks Arab guy with blackish beard but he is telling me that after his parents died in an accident his uncle took care of him that he is living in London and had a business (L&J building construction company-but not not under his name when searched in google) registered in California USA. He just broke up with his ex gf and took half of his money & run away 2 weeks before his wedding so he is looking for a faithful partner. He asked me to delete the dating site apps and asked me to chat on google hangout . He added me in his Facebook acct but it was just created w/o friends on his list and with only 1 photo. T'was Weird! After 2 days he deleted his acct as it was hacked as per him. Then he got robbed (mobile,laptop, including 10k USD cash) and he is telling of so many stories. Then told me about good news, a HUGE business deal, he got awarded a 1M USD contract in turkey for 3 mos. but he need a starting amount of 50k usd but because he got robbed he needs my help financially as he don't want to missed the chance & will give it back after he got paid. He sent me a copy of his contract / business registration and a copy of his US passport. I did an image reverse search & found out that all his documents including his passport copy were fake & photo-shopped. Told him he is a scammer that he cannot get any money from me and I'm not stupid & idiot to send him money at all. Then he kept on defending himself & he cannot do those things coz he loves me very much but I said to him to save his soul from satan and better to kill himself:) and I immediately blocked him and run away;)) Please be cautious ladies & gentlemen..

I’ve been getting girls follow me on IG and we get to talking, they want to quickly jump into a relationship and emphasize trust and honesty. They will talk to you and tell you everything you want to hear, it all sounds so good. Exchanging pics, even ask them to send a pic of waving hello and they will send it. Pretty soon the I love you starts flying out of her mouth, how much she wishes she was there with you right now, how great of a future you are going to have together. The last one said she was from Indiana and was in Nigeria on business, as she was a coffee bean distributor who sold her beans to Starbucks, even sent pics of the factory processing the beans, pics of herself in the hotel room, cab, and other places. Then soon enough she is having a horrible day! Her credit card was declined at the hotel and she can’t charge food on it and hasn’t eaten all day. Then said if I really cared for her could I wire her $350 so she could eat for the rest of the week because the credit card company was going to take 7 days to get her account handled properly because she was overseas! At this point I knew it was a scam so I thought I’d play along and have a little fun with her! Why not? Keep her busy so she couldn’t scam someone else. Sent her a pic of how much $ I had in checking, I moved $$ out so it looked like I only had $275. She asked if I would wire her $250! Said how am I supposed to live and get to work on only $25! She got upset and asked how much could I send her then? Said let me call my family and ask for money. Next day she asked if my family was giving me the money, said I left my mom a message and she didn’t return my call yet. She then said in all caps.... CALL HER AGAIN! At that point I told her I thought you cared for me and loved me,but all you seemed interested in was my money! Oh she got furious then! How could I say such a thing! We are going to spend the rest of our lives together and if I really cared for her I would send the money to her right this instant! Finally I had enough and told her you aren’t gonna scam me but nice try. She then said something horrible about my mother. My response was...... oh you really got me there! If you wanna try and hurt feeling, you should find someone who actually has feelings! She then blocked me on Instagram and I blocked her as well. I don’t care how much you say you love me and care for me I will never send or wire someone money that I met online! Be careful because I’m still getting followed by girls looking for money! Usually it’s a pretty girl with only 2-10 pics on her page, lots of guys following her but she will only follow about 1/2 the people that follow her. Dates on the pics posted are usually all on the same day or within a week from first post to last pic posted. A few comments on each pic from someone, but no responses from her. And they usually want to talk outside on Instagram, either email or WhatsApp. Be careful my friends! Don’t fall victim to these scammers. Feel free to ask me any questions cause they have tried to scam me often

I need help. I’ve been communicating with a Robert Kokholm from Denmark. He says he lived in Phoenix. But is in Austria on a job. We have been communicating for 6 months. He has never been pushy, very tentative. He has inherited money from his fathers death in Denmark and needs it for a settlement in his job in Austria. His attorney in the UK wants me to send $850. Tomorrow for attorney fees so they can take care of the paperwork, open up a account for me. Through there Turkey legal office. The inheritance is over a million dollars to be put in my name so I can in return pay his legal fee in Austria and get home to me, so we can go back to Denmark together. All sounds so good. I’ve gone through the attorney in the UK website. Everything looks good. He is so good. But I found this website tonight. I told him I wasn’t sure about sending my ID, address. And opening a bank account. I’m thinking I could get in some trouble, if this is money laundering. I don’t know. But I’m praying that someone else out there knows Robert Kokholm and can advice me.

I'm so glad I found this site. I think I've been scammed as well, by a woman calling herself Donna Renman. I 'met' her through a friend of hers on a dating website. She thought we'd be a perfect fit. I fell for it, my wife is cheating on me and I've been looking for someone new to fill my life. "Donna" came on pretty strong, expressing her love for me and that I was the one she had sought all of her life - even though we haven't met. Claims she's a gemologist, now on business in South Africa. She says her account is suspended because she tried to send money to an account that wasn't 'authorized' by her bank. To prove her bonafides she sent me her account number and password, and it does show a suspended account under her name with almost $10 million in it. She says she has to appear in person to get the suspension lifted, but she doesn't have the money for a plane ticket to get back, and wants me to send her $1000 for it - which she'll pay back, of course. I've resisted, saying I don't have that amount available (which is true). If this is a scam it's a very elaborate one.

I was contacted by this guy on a dating site for disabled people: My name is Gerald Koch Nelson (Gen), General in Command in the USA - UN/NATO Alliance(S Unit A091) currently in Syria for a peacekeeping mission , trying to make the world a better place especially for our children and the future generation. I was born on February 25, 1963 at Maryland Hospital of Maryland, USA, my father has an European descend from West Germany (North Rhine-Westphalia), Gelsenkirchen and I have been there a couple of times. I love my European descend and want to settle down one day with holidays in between USA and other countries. I started A & A Children Academy at 6 and later on continued from Calvary Baptist Church Schools. I joined the Military academy at the age of 16, rising through the ranks. I lost my wife of 14 years of marriage to an accident which caused my daughter's ill fate. I have an adopted son I love very much. I would be coming for vacation very soon. My last before I retire from my long decades of service to the Army. I hope this is a beginning of a nice friendship for many more to come , which I believe. Take care and read from you soon. Regards, Gerald. I’m positive he’s a scammer. Almost nothing adds up. The grammar is atrocious. His profile on the site is in German! I’ve reported him. Be careful! He contacted me and I responded with a short rather generic answer. I live in the same town with one of the biggest bases for overseas military activity. If you want his photos, pm me.

I belong to the LGBT community, I am transgender FTM. I had a translady contact me on, she claimed to be an America/Italian living in London getting ready to move back to the states to claim her late fathers inheritance. She went by Keira Elizabeth MacKinnon. We talked daily for almost 2 months, she would send me pictures all the time, even with her friends. I fell for the bank account/send me money scam. She kept saying she had to have a stateside bank account to put her inheritance money in. She is a very attractive person and she seems very sincere, until her "lawyer" Johnathan Smith deposited the first check and it didn't clear. She then became very hostile and mean. I ended up getting a call from the banks fraud department telling me about all the unknown activity that was happening with my newly opened bank account.

Hi! I have an elderly Aunt who was scammed by a man with the same name, his line was he was in the Marines in a ship off the coast of Nova Scotia, he had a 15 year old daughter, whose mother had died, and the daughter even sent her an email stating that she couldn't wait to meet her "Mother" she loved her and since she had been motherless for a long while, it was going to be wonderful to have a"Mom" My Aunt is a very gullible person, a widow who has health issues along with this. After much discussion with her (she lives out of state and she has 2 grown daughters in their 50's. who do not speak to her and want nothing to do with her, I somehow am her only contact, even though she is an Aunt from my Mom's brother who passed away 7 years ago. I still connect with her because of the no connection with her daughters and grandchildren. This "person" convinced her to send 3,000 which she did. Eventually she realized he was a scam, although she never got her money back. Now she is falling for another man? named Williams THomas, who claims to be in the UK in the military, he also wants money, she has just enough to get by now, she even called me asking if I could loan her money, I did not. She believes this "mans" story again, he has a son in the UK who corresponds with her, as did the other "daughter" from Dan Thomas. He wants a mother since HIS mother died a long while ago, can't wait to have a "MUM" even went as far as calling her "MUM" since he claims to be in the UK. She is falling for this again, and has called me a liar and she believes this "Man" I do not know what to do, since her daughters and family members do not speak to me either, since they are mad that I still correspond with their mom I could care less what they think of me, so do I need to contact the authorities, FBI or other agencies? She lives in another state and I cannot go talk to her. I have no phone numbers or email addresses of her daughters and really have no way of reaching either of them. Part of me wants to quit worrying about this, but I hate to see this happen to her again. She is in debt (not from him that I know of) but she has a car with car payments that is 2 months late, she is ready to sell her trailer and has had an offer on it. She is totally in belief that this "man" is the love of her life, he has promised her the moon, vacations to London, a new Mercedes, a home, and she even has asked me to be her "matron of honor" last guy, Dan Thomas, really was a jerk, he promised her a shopping trip to Tiffany's to pick out any diamond she wanted, a mansion, a new Mercedes etc. etc. Any advice? Thanks so much!

Within 3 weeks he wanted to marry me I said too fast. he kept calling me and texting me and telling me how much you love me. he wanted to know about my house my family and everything else I gave him some BS. 3 days before his so-called daughter's birthday he wanted me to go get her a phone. I told him I did not have money for a phone he said can you at least send her $600 then. I said I don't have $600 to give to anybody not not even myself. He said okay can you go get her an iTunes card oh, I said I could for like $20. he said that's not enough and last year in the UK he sent a $400 iTunes card could I at least send a hundred. I told him I didn't have the means to even send a hundred let alone more than 25. then I gave him a story that someone in my family was sick and kept him going for days for I didn't even want to send that. her so-called birthday came and went he didn't say anything for over three days. he then text me and asked me if I had heard from his princess. I told him no I said did you not text her for her birthday I said I sent her an email for her birthday and I did not hear anything back. he then said you didn't send that iTunes card my princess is going without a birthday. I said I'm sorry I could not help you I did not have the money. he didn't text me for like two and a half days and then all the sudden he started texting me again. Calling me is Queen asking me if I had eaten enough if I'm feeling good if I'm taking care of myself that he loves me from the bottom of his heart. and then out of the blue he said that he had broke apart on the oil rig and he had to get it fixed because it was his fault. Wanting to know if I could go get a loan I told him no I can't get a loan. He wanted me to go get a loan against my house or my car I told him my ex's name was on my house and my car wasn't working. That I could not get a loan on that because neither one of themI met him on finally salt and pepper hair goes by the name of Richard Albert was orphan desert child uncle Ray's him from age 3. Lives in Colorado has a 14 year old daughter. Daughter also lives with nanny goes to boarding school. He has a large apartment and a 2018 BMW LOL. Suede me at the beginning by calling me sweetheart lovely darling and then he's fell on love with me. Within 3 weeks he wanted to marry me I said to fast. Kept call me and texting me and telling me how much you love me. He wanted to know about my house my family and everything else I gave him some BS. Three days before his so-called daughter's birthday he wanted me to go get her a phone. I told him I did not have money for a phone he said can you at least send her $600 then. I said I don't have $600 to give to anybody nothing that even myself. He said okay can you go get her an iTunes card, I said maybe for like $20. He said no last year when he was in the UK he sent her a $400 one could I at least send a hundred I said no. The week went on I played like I was way too busy to pay any attention. 3 days after her so-called birthday he asked me if I had gotten in touch with his princess. I told him I sent her an email for her happy birthday. Granite I sent her an email to introduce myself and I got two emails back we're two different people myself and another woman. When I confronted him about it he said the other woman was heard nanny I doubt that 100%. So he asked me if I had sent the iTunes card I said no he got upset and said oh my princess is going without a birthday. I asked him I said did you not send anything for her birthday or email her. He said oh she must be mad at me cuz she didn't get anything she's not returning my emails. So he didn't text me for like two and a half days and then all the sudden he starts texting me again. today he told me that he had broke apart on the platform that goes to the water for the people to drink water freshwater. And if that if he didn't get it fixed he was going to be in big trouble. You needed me to go get a loan. I told him there's no way I can get a loan I have no credit I have no bank account. He kept asking me and asking me and I kept telling him no. He finally said can you go get a loan against your car I told him no my car had broke down. LOL not really. He then asked if I could go get a loan against my house I told him know my ex's name is on it and he will not sign off on anything. he kept telling me I could go to the bank and open get a loan I told him no I don't have a checking account I can't just go to a bank and get a loan. I've been told him that I would ask my son's girlfriend who works at a criminal law firm if she could get a loan. To text me back that he does not understand. I said if you give me your full name your social security number the name of the platform you're on in the number to it she will fill out all kinds of paperwork and try to get a loan I also need the number of the people that you want us to send the money to. He text me back and said he does not understand. I told him she works at a criminal law firm her boss is very strict she has to fill out paperwork you need to send the information for she can send out the paperwork. His name is Richard Albert I have not heard back from him since early this afternoon. Which is really a good thing ladies beware don't fall for him I didn't play the game.

People, these scam artists are using different names. So don't think he or she would use the same name. Mine was Collins Muriel. He said his wife died 3 years ago. He was raised by a Dutch woman and that's why he has a Dutch accent. His home base is Gray, TN. We've only been talking about 10 days via text and a gmail email. He was in love with me after only 3 days. Luckily, I caught on that what is too good to be true, probably isn't. Be careful out there and trust your instincts!

Lots of people on here are trying to identify scammers by sharing their names and pictures. However these scammers are liars. They have dozens of different names and pictures. Whether or not a name and/or picture matches makes little difference, because they're always using different ones, and they are all fake.
