100 local adult dating sites

Con artists are increasingly creating fake online profiles and tricking people on dating sites into handing over often large sums of money.

But just as dating app users are at an all-time high, so is the number of people becoming victims of online dating fraud.

A new report by the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau has found that last year, singles were conned out of £39 million by fraudsters they’d met on dating sites and apps.

The male profile is in his late 40s (48 is the most common age) with a high income.

He presents himself as a widower, with a degree and of average height (5’10”).

She was all set to meet him at the airport when he suddenly messaged saying his funds had dried up and he needed £5,000.

“I just couldn’t believe that was what he was saying,” Jane told .

Serious fraudsters sometimes even create further fake profiles and use them to be rude to you, all to make the main fake profile seem more desirable.

And it’s not just particularly vulnerable people who fall victim either.

Photos used are often selfies of her wearing skimpy vest tops showing lots of cleavage.

Jane*, a middle-aged woman from Warwickshire, had a lucky escape a few years ago when she very nearly handed over a sizeable sum of money to an online scammer who did in fact claim to be an engineer.

But then they suddenly need money for rent too, then food, then medical fees, and it can quickly escalate.
