    Romance Scammers are some of the lowest of the low. Online dating has become popular, and in turn this has become yet another avenue for internet fraudsters to contact potential victims. Even faith-based dating sites such as Christian Mingle have not been immune to the scammers perpetrating their crimes against victims contacted there. While losing money and finding out that someone you’ve been communicating with is a criminal can be difficult, there can be an even more devastating emotional impact when there is a supposed romance involved. The following is a brief explanation of how these scams commonly work, and how to spot whether you’re conversing with a legitimate user of a dating site like Christian Mingle, or you’re really talking to a criminal who is preparing to defraud you.

    I have never used one of those sites. What we do know is that scammers of all kinds use all things to scam people. We can learn to be careful or go hide in a cave.
