Safe valentine

11th February 2019

In time for valentines day the BBC is reporting on how many women are targeted by scams at this time of year.

  • Criminals who commit romance fraud trawl through profiles and piece together information such as wealth and lifestyle, in order to manipulate their victims
  • Police can investigate and help to provide support, but often cannot get the money back
  • It is very simple for fraudsters to cover their tracks by masking IP addresses and using unregistered phone numbers
  • Never send money to someone online you have never met
  • Think twice about posting personal information which could be used to manipulate or bribe you

More details at the BBC page. Stay safe and have a great valentine!
