Romance Fraud

Share Post:

A recent BBC article entitled “Romance fraud on rise in coronavirus lockdown” demonstrates that fraudsters are taking every opportunity imaginable to defraud their victims, even going so far as using relationship fraud. Typically, they’ll use dating platforms or social media and will communicate with the victim in a way that’s calculated to gain their trust and affection. Once this objective is achieved, the fraudster will find crafty ways to make the victim part with her or his money. It’s criminal but it is also grounds for a civil claim. Contact us for assistance.
