Online dating for over 40
For weeks, even months, you may chat back and forth with one another, forming a connection. But ultimately, it’s going to happen—your new-found “friend” is going to ask you for money.So you send money..rest assured the requests won’t stop there.In addition to losing your money to someone who had no intention of ever visiting you, you may also have unknowingly taken part in a money laundering scheme by cashing phony checks and sending the money overseas and by shipping stolen merchandise (the forwarded package).In another recently reported dating extortion scam, victims usually met someone on an online dating site and then were asked to move the conversation to a particular social networking site, where the talk often turned intimate.The pictures you were sent were most likely phony lifted from other websites.The profiles were fake as well, carefully crafted to match your interests.These criminals—who also troll social media sites and chat rooms in search of romantic victims—usually claim to be Americans traveling or working abroad. While their most common targets are women over 40 who are divorced, widowed, and/or disabled, but every age group and demographic is at risk. You’re contacted online by someone who appears interested in you.

Perhaps I'm a bit picky, wink but right when I pretty much given up of ever finding that Mr. Right under the Bob Evans sign in Bloomington our first time meeting. Were actually planning two weddings, were going to redo our vows this summer in the buff which is a dream of mine for always.
Due to circumstances at the time I kept telling him to see others, duh!!
