    online dating scams, Be Aware

    Hi everyone,
    So I have always been sceptical of online dating until recently when my friends encouraged me to try it out. I decided to go for it thinking that it would be good to connect to new people with the possibility of developing a genuine relationship. I set up my dating profile and was very excited for this new adventure. I started talking to a guy who seemed loving and caring and genuinely interested in me. We started talking regularly sometimes for a good few hours of the day. Then suddenly he went quite for a few days, not replying to my messages at all. A few days later he messaged me saying that he had been involved in an accident and was badly injured and urgently needed financial help. I had my suspicions so I did a bit of research and found out that it is a very common way used by scammers to target innocent people online. I found out that his profile was fake and everything he said to me was a complete lie. It was devastating and heartbreaking for me.
