Whether you’re a man or woman, you must be alert to the dating scam going on around you. Two men (Christine and Trevor) were scammed by women (Britney and Marisa) in Las Vegas. They were told they were doing work for a fellow named Jerry. The couple were then used as part of the scam and were taken to a different casino at night. Here, they were bribed to show up at the casino, where the same scam took place. Both men had a good time playing craps and didn’t worry about being scammed.
Tips to be aware of:
Always have a good reason for being in Vegas.
Always meet in a public place and agree to go to a second meeting in a public place. If you’re offered a private meeting, that’s a red flag.
Scammers will try to coerce you into giving them money.

The Future of Romance Scams
On the horizon, even more people will be seduced into fraud. Recruiting a complete stranger through the deep web is what this sort of attack requires, but it is likely to be a technique copied by scammers with some kind of anonymity. They will likely use fake profiles on social media to lead people on and take their money, just as romance scams are getting better at. This technique could be much more intense than the standard scam.
If you have a romantic partner, you need to be cautious. A lot of romance scams happen when people have experienced a great loss, and someone comes in and offers hope that all is not lost. If you see that you might be a target of such fraud, be sure that you are on guard for any signs of manipulation and fraud.
