Cash Reward Scams
Getting tricked into a fake romantic relationship and manipulated into providing money or financial assistance.
Example of a news headline about a love scam victim:
They will contact the victim via dating apps or social media platforms and try to establish a ‘romantic’ relationship.
They will usually use a fictional name or falsely take on the identity of a real person with a reputable working background abroad to lure victims.
They will declare their love quickly without even meeting the victim. They would often use affectionate words and offer gifts to gain the victim’s trust.
After gaining the victim’s trust, they will manipulate the victim into giving money, gifts, or even personal information.
The scammers will come up with reasons such as to help their business, to cover medical expenses, or to pay for their flight tickets to visit the victim, among others.
Don’t transfer money to a stranger on the internet that you have never met before in person.
Do not share your personal banking details with strangers online.
Do a reverse image search of the individual’s profile picture. If the picture is associated with another person or with details that don’t match up, it is likely a scam.
