If their profile says they’ve lived in Ohio their entire lives, but they’re using non-standard English, or have notably poor grammar, that could be a warning sign (think of the kinds of errors you’d see in a Nigerian scam email or on the phone, where they need to spontaneously come up with things to say. Obviously, there are plenty of non-native speakers out there who are sincerely looking for a relationship, and they could very well be from heritage speaking communities in the United State or Britain.

This isn’t a dead giveaway, but it’s something to watch out for.

If you fall into this category, be especially wary of people that you meet through dating websites.

Online dating can be difficult for women The AARP also says that seniors are a common target of these scams.

Again, both men and women can and have fallen victim to online dating scammers, but women tend to be targeted more aggressively.

Interestingly, the AARP says that men fall victim to these scams more often, but that women are more likely to report the scam.

Many scammers will be prepared to answer these and even more complicated questions, but if you can’t get answers from a suitor, you should be suspicious.

For example, scammers will often ask you to communicate with them outside of the dating site—via email, through Facebook, or even on Skype.

They might also say that they live near you, but that they’re away; they could be in another country on a trip or for work, but they’ll almost certainly be somewhere far away where you can’t meet them.

The photos used by scammers can also clue you in that something is off.
