That means printing out all emails, filing every letter received, keeping any related credit card, wire, money order, and/or bank receipts, printing off phone bills, writing out text messages or getting a list from your cell phone provider, filing any related canceled checks, and documenting chats received via instant message.Most dating scams are perpetrated through Western Union.In cooperation with our partners we have created the world's first anti-scammer data network connecting websites, social media, governments, and money transfer entities.
You should report scams to: *** Your local police station.
If this is how you sent the funds, check with the company to see if they can be canceled before being picked up.
When the dating scam occurs through a dating site, make sure to report it through their website. Victims should also check out the FBI's website dedicated to online fraud called Looks Too Good To Be True, which offers scam reporting for citizens of any country, regardless of their location.
We are expanding this network constantly, and in time will provide the most complete databases of online fraud available.
By reporting your Fraudsters and Scammers you are helping to alert other potential victims, since they will be able to find your report on Google and other search engines, as well as drive this data upstream to services that can use this to identify Fraudsters and Scammers on their services, such as Money Transfer Services.
