Usually, the scammer is millions of miles away in a country like Nigeria, not to mention many years younger than his profile indicates. Ellen, a 65-year old woman from British Columbia, lived a happy life that became a lot happier when she met the man of her dreams online.

If you do, chances are you will be stuck in a very “phishy” situation.

Unfortunately, these con artists get creative and can trick even the smartest of individuals.

With bank logos and real links, the email may seem legitimate.

Thousands, even millions of dollars later, they are left wondering why they didn’t see it coming from the start.

Far too often, the response is, “I knew it was too good to be true.” Sometimes it’s a handsome man on a dating service, other times it’s a fake email from your bank.

Like Ellen, thousands of people fall victim to romance scams each year.
