    6 Signs Your Online Sweetie Might Be An Overseas Scammer

    The Department of State Bureau of Consular Affairs receives daily calls about international scams involving Internet dating. Many scams are initiated through the Internet; victims range in age from teens to the elderly and come from all socio-economic backgrounds. Here are 6 signs your lover might be a scammer.

    1. It's escalating really quickly.

    2. It's all real talk all the time.

    3. Your Internet friend is Ivy League educated, looks like a swimsuit model and is really rich (or awaiting an inheritance that will come…though…any…day…now).

    4. The struggle is [not] real.

    5. Your love interest has really. Bad. Luck.

    6. The only digits your new friend wants is your bank account number.

    Millions of U.S. citizens use dating sites, social networking sites, and chat rooms to meet people. And many begin successful relationships.

    Happy Valentines Day!
