Romance scams start with fake profiles on online dating sites. The scammer, who is conveniently working abroad, quickly builds a relationship with the targeted victim, exchanging photos, romantic messages, or even talking by phone. Then they will make a request: money needed for an emergency or maybe to plan an in-person visit. The target sends money, and then never hears from the love interest again.
Just in time for Valentine's Day! With the hashtag #NeverTooLateToDate, The Age of Love - a comic and poignant documentary about our lifelong search for love - launches across the country this February, with dozens of upcoming events and screenings being planned from Seattle to New York, including right here in Connecticut.
