They play on your sympathy and strike when you are the most vulnerable — caught up in the romance and emotional. Ask a Lot of Questions Inquire about where they are from, and verify landmarks and spellings of cities online. Catfishers like to ask you a lot of questions, but seldom let you go deep into their lives, coming up with excuses about why they are reluctant to offer more personal information about themselves.

For example, they might say, “I’ve been hurt before by telling too much too soon,” which actually turns the tables on you to prove that you can be trusted — Red flag! You Are Not an ATM Machine If they ask for money, lock them out of your life.

Start by considering the fact that scams are common enough to warrant this warning. If any of them sound familiar, you are likely the victim of an internet scam. This type of crime is not a priority for local police and it is difficult to prosecute these cases. The Bureau of Consular Affairs also has additional information on Internet Dating and Romance Scams.

Cases bearing these and other hallmarks have all proven to be scams intended to prey on sympathetic and compassionate U. The Embassy can offer a sympathetic ear, share information on protecting yourself against such scams, and help you determine if your situation is real or fraudulent, but cannot do much else. If you suspect you may be the victim of a scam, please read through our information on Resources for Victims of International Financial Scams.
