An Edmonton Man Says He Sent $143,000 To A Fraudster After He Was Targeted In A Romance Scam That Lasted More Than A Year
According to Con, he was contacted by a woman who claimed to have seen his online dating profile. She told him she was a United States citizen, working overseas as a computer civil engineer and a single mom with a 9-year-old son.
Con talked to the woman for months before she told him the camera on her phone was broken and she asked him for $600 to fix it. Con initially said no, and the woman stopped contacting him. Several months later, they started talking again. He agreed to give her $100 towards a new phone. She said it wasn’t enough, and the conversations stopped.

FAQ: How Do You Properly Report Scammers?
It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.
Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
- Your National Police or FBI (www.IC3.gov)
- The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network HERE or on www.Anyscam.com
This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
