Red and White Hearts Valentines Day Card
AARP wants to make sure that L-O-V-E is the only thing in the air this Valentine’s Day! Unfortunately, cupid isn’t the only one taking aim at you. Scammers and con artists take advantage of people who are looking for love.

Valentine’s Day means a lot to many of us who are busy sending flowers or chocolates to loved ones, or finding creative and romantic ways to tell our loved ones exactly how we feel.

In 1991, Helen and Wallace met like many people do, having a brief conversation that was pleasant but never bloomed into romance. Twenty-five years later, they reconnected and found love through volunteering.
Romance Scams Petition Graphic II
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.  Many “sweetheart” scammers are targeting online dating sites to find victims. Some scammers are particularly fond of faith-based sites because people are more likely to fall for a scam if they assume that someone of their own faith could never be a con artist.  Be careful what you share online and be careful what types of questions a would-be sweetheart is asking you. Go to www.aarp.org/fraudwatchnetwork and sign our petition to urge online dating sites to crack down on these scams.   Keep your warm heart safe and leave sweetheart scammers out in the cold.
