Scammers want one thing and one thing only — money. However, they may also choose to message you over SMS or an app like Whatsapp. Not all dating scams involve prolonged catfishing, and certain mobile dating app scams differ from dating website scams. Common ruses involve asking for money to visit the target of the scam, giving victims a tale of woe about a medical emergency or serious illness, or some other convoluted financial difficulties that require a sudden injection of cash. This helps us to warn people about current scams, monitor trends and disrupt scams where possible.
And a person can become a problem without having a record. They tell people what they want to hear. They do it to protect you, not to make money.
