If you fall into this category, be especially wary of people that you meet through dating websites.
Early on in a courting relationship, you’ll probably ask a lot of questions, even basic ones like “how tall are you? ” If the person you’re talking to is avoiding these basic questions, that should be a big red flag.
Of course, just because someone is younger doesn’t mean that they’re a scammer; it’s just something to keep in mind.
Scammers also often list themselves as widowed (especially with a child), self-employed, or working overseas.
Scammers are good at being charming and saying all the right things—and they start it fast.
They have a lot of victims to get through, so they’re going to try to move things along as quickly as possible.
