What is a Romance Scam?
Frequently Asked Question
Romance scams are one of the more common and costly online scams. Scammers create fake profiles on dating and social media sites and present as the perfect date. They will chat with you for some time to gain your trust, and then start asking you for financial support. These scammers may ask you to pay for a plane ticket, medical expenses, or customs fees to retrieve something, for example. They will also have reasons why they can’t get together just yet. Citadel advises members to not provide any financial information to anyone, even those you do know, over the internet. To learn more, visit CitadelBanking.com/scams.
