Dating Scams

Lima, OH (WIMA) - You may be in the mood for love on this Valentine's Day, but the Better Business Bureau is warning consumers against romance scams or online dating scams.

Scammers are using online dating sites, hiding behind fake profiles to meet their next victim.

Signs that it's a scam are if the person asks for money for various reasons and asks for your email address.

They usually ask you to send money by Western Union, purchase a gift card or ask for your bank information. 

Report relationship scams to the Better Business Bureau, Federal Trade Commission, or to the Attorney General.

If you think you are a victim, call the local BBB at 419-223-7010.
