We understand that being the victim of a romance fraud is incredibly difficult to accept and process.

Getting someone to fall in love with you so you can extract money out of them is an incredibly cruel act.

The first thing that we want to say is that, this is not your fault.

Romance scammers are often some of the most manipulative and clever fraudsters that we come across. They may have decades of experience in conning people out of money. Often they will target people when they are particulalrly vulnerable, such as those who have suffered a bereavement or split up form a partner.

The heartache caused by romance scammers can sometimes be worse than the financial losses that they have engineered.

We are here to offer a sympathetic ear and help recover your lost funds in as quick and hassle-free way as possible.

How do I know if I’m a victim of romance fraud?

Very often the hardest part of being a victim of romance fraud is admitting to yourself that you have been scammed.

Here are some key warning signs to look out for:

  • The person you are in a romantic relationship with asks you for money or financial assistance.
  • They refuse to meet in person or make excuses for not being able to meet in person.
  • They move the relationship along very quickly, professing their love and commitment early on.
  • They avoid talking about their personal life or provide inconsistent information about themselves.
  • They ask you to keep the relationship a secret from friends and family.
  • They make excuses for not being able to video chat or talk on the phone.
  • They have a sob story or emergency situation that requires financial help from you.
  • They display controlling or manipulative behavior, such as trying to isolate you from friends and family.
