Thank you for your insightful report on romance scam. Each and every warning about this insidious crime has the potential to save many innocent victims, and you can be sure that yours will as well.

As a longtime anti-scam activist and present member of scamsurvivors.com, I would like to comment on some of the data presented here. In particular, the numbers pertaining to male victims of romance scam are more than likely badly skewed, due to the fact that most men do not report having been romance scammed.

Lately male-targeted scam has evolved insidiously into what is called the 'blackmail scam'. Criminals using fake footage of hot young girls (some of them online porn stars) coax their victims into -- shall we say -- doing things on cam that they wouldn't want their mothers to see. This cam session is then captured and the scammer threatens to show it to all of the victim's facebook friends if a certain amount of money is not paid. If the victim pays, a new request for money follows. While the best way to avoid this scam is to keep one's clothes on and NEVER trust anyone online, if it does happen, it is possible to emerge somewhat unscathed. Most importantly: DO NOT ENGAGE IN NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE SCAMMER and DO NOT SEND MONEY.

Should you become a victim of blackmail scam, our site offers free info and support, including advice on increasing personal privacy through the ordeal.

In the meantime, one little bit of advice: When dealing with online 'friends', make Google your best friend. Check everything ... email addresses, photos, chunks of messages etc.
