Million plus online dating
Nancy*, a 47-year-old single mother from North Yorkshire was conned out of over £350,000 that way: “I wasn't comfortable, and then I got so far in I couldn't get myself out, and I didn't want to walk away having lost £50,000 or what-have-you, so you keep going in the hope that you're wrong and this person is genuine,” she explained to the BBC.
Nancy is now facing bankruptcy, and although her case is extreme, the average victim of online dating fraud loses £10,000 according to Action Fraud.
Around 7.8 million UK adults used online dating sites in 2016, up from just 100,000 in 2000.
But just as dating app users are at an all-time high, so is the number of people becoming victims of online dating fraud.
So if you’re looking for a new love in your life you’ve come to the right place.
Finding a new partner at any stage in your life can be difficult, but as we grow older, it becomes even harder to enter the dating scene with confidence.
Some 22% of 25-34 year olds and 17% of 35-44 year olds are online daters.“A lot of the online dating fraudsters we know are abroad.They're in West Africa, Eastern Europe and it's very difficult for British law enforcement to take action against them in those jurisdictions,” Steve Profitt, Deputy Head of Action Fraud explains.Simply complete the signup form and start browsing from hundreds of thousands of like-minded people aged 50, 60 & over, looking for friendship or love.We make it our mission to bring brilliant, vibrant, senior daters together in a safe and fun environment.
“People online are free to act out their worst impulses with very little incentive to act out their best.
