Romance Scams are a deceptive tactic employed by individuals who create fake online personas to establish romantic relationships with unsuspecting individuals, often through dating websites or social media platforms. These scammers invest time in cultivating a sense of trust and emotional connection with their victims before exploiting them for financial gain. Once trust is established, they often fabricate elaborate stories to evoke sympathy and manipulate their victims into sending money or providing personal information. These scams can have devastating financial and emotional consequences for the victims, leaving them financially depleted and emotionally shattered when they realize they have been deceived.
