  • Looking for love online? Scam

    Posted by alen on October 23, 2021 at 5:30 pm

    One woman lost more than $200,000 to someone she met online. Before you fall head over heels, beware these red flags.

    As is typical with these scams, this online romance was all via text or email. And yet, the relationship felt real to Joyce.

    “They talk to you so lovingly that you can’t believe they’d scam you,” she told me. “It’s like you are walking around with blinders on.”
