Everyone wants to feel connected and loved. It can be hard for any adult to find a partner. Finding the “Right One” requires openness. The purpose of this fact sheet is to make sure that our openness does not extend to our wallets or pocketbooks.

Understand that there are scammers who are creating elaborate schemes and adopting false personas to develop “relationships” and extort some out of a combination of our homes, retirement, or life savings. Scammers attempt to convince their targets after swift attempts at gaining trust, that they are in love, often times targeting isolated or lonely individuals.
