Dating fraudsters

Many of the sample emails read a bit like Mad Libs or choose-your-own-adventure texts, featuring decision templates that include advice for ultimately tricking the mark into wiring money to the scammer.The romance scam package is designed for fraudsters who prey on lonely men via dating Web sites and small spam campaigns.

The dating scam package is assembled for and marketed to Russian-speaking hackers, with hundreds of email templates written in English and a variety of European languages.The dating scam package advises customers to stick to a tried-and-true approach.For instance, scammers are urged to include an email from the mother of the girl in the first 10 emails between the scammer and a target.Cybercriminals who steal accounts on these popular dating sites will go on to use them to commit online dating fraud.By getting hold of genuine users' login details, the fraudsters can then use the dating site's messaging system to send messages to potential victims, building up a relationship with them before claiming that they need money for, say, a medical emergency or travel costs to arrange a meeting.

If you think you have been the victim of a dating fraud, report it to Action Fraud on 03 or online.
