Avoiding Online Relationship Scams

Online Romance Scams June 10, 2021.png

Lots of people meet friends and potential love interests online through dating sites, social media, or mobile apps. It can be a great way to meet people, but not everyone is who they say they are online. These scams aren’t just targeted at people who are looking for a relationship on a dating site or app. They can occur through social media and even through email.

In this free AARP NH webinar on Thursday, June 10 at 6 pm, we’ll talk about the red flags to be on the lookout for regarding online relationships. With more people meeting online, scams related to online relationships are also on the rise.

In a January 2019 AARP survey about online relationships, 27% of US adults say they or someone they know have encountered an online relationship scam. Think about that for a second – more than a quarter of US adults have been targeted or know someone who has with this kind of a scam!

AARP created the Fraud Watch Network to empower consumers to spot and avoid scams, and to provide support and guidance to victims and their families when fraud happens.  In addition to attending sessions like this one, you can find a wealth of resources at aarp.org/fraudwatchnetwork.

You’ll leave this session armed with steps you can take to protect your heart and your money!
