3 minute dating online
In August, a British man was sent to jail after defrauding two women of over £300,000 (5,300) through online dating sites.
He had convinced them that he was a diplomat and that a US marine general had fallen in love with them, causing one woman to pawn jewelry, empty her life savings, sell her car, and take out loans to help this general move to the UK. In 2011, the Internet Crime Complaint Center estimated that the online dating scamming “industry” was worth over million, but it’s likely much higher than that, due to the difficulty of making a good estimate.
Again, both men and women can and have fallen victim to online dating scammers, but women tend to be targeted more aggressively.
Anyone can be the target and victim of these scams—men, women, young, old, gay, straight, white, black, Asian, Hispanic… But the FBI states that women who are “over 40, divorced, widowed, and/or disabled” are prime targets for scammers.We all have busy lives, especially those of us who work in uniform.That’s why Uniform Dating is here, to guide you through the world of online dating and help you find your hero.When you have unsociable shift patterns, a demanding job, or you’re stationed overseas, finding love can be tricky.But don’t despair, when you sign up to our UK dating site you’ll realise you’re not alone.
