I got this from a girl at work who works for Cyber Security in the IT department. She sends me lots of great info that I always share here.
Take a few minutes and read and check out the links.
Remember: Never send money to someone you don't know!!!
Watch out for Romance Scams
Valentine’s Day is a good reminder to alert friends and relatives of internet romance scams. Cyber criminals who use this type of fraud target victims, gain their confidence, and convince them to transfer funds. Remind everyone to use caution and never send gifts or money to someone they have not met in person.
For more resources that can be shared, see the Federal Trade Commission’s alert It’s not true love if they ask for money, the FTC video Online Romance Imposter Scams, and tips on Staying Safe on Social Networking Sites.
If you someone who has been a victim of a romance scam, encourage them to file a report with The Federal Trade Commission, and the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center (ic3).
This is a good link too.
