Online dating services are booming businesses, and the boomers who are joining them are doing so in big numbers.
People aged 50 and older represent 25 percent of membership on the popular dating site -- a 45 percent jump in the last five years, a spokesman said.
The scammer talks a lot about honesty and trust in less than 5 minutes.
“I am looking for someone honest and truthful to chat and see how it goes. I am very honest and truthful and I want someone the same.” The money will be wired transferred from western union or money gram by you to him.
The scam artist then instructs the victim to send a deposit or full payment via wire transfer to initiate the "shipping" process.
