  • Valentine’s Day Scam

    Posted by David on October 22, 2021 at 3:30 pm

    As Valentine’s Day approaches, love is in the air — and romance scams are apparently everywhere.

    According to the FTC, the reports of these online scams have nearly tripled in the past years, and in 2020 alone victims lost around $201 million from being swindled by their cyber sweetheart. This just grazes the surface of online dating scam statistics.
