a lot. This show will help you not be that victim. Someone once asked me, What's the difference between catfishing and romance scams? Well with both, they use the same methods to lure the victims. Some even followed the same script. The only difference is catfishing does not ask for financial gains or methods. Cat fishers don't ask you to send the money nor ask you to give up your house or car. They just use it to fantasize, being with you or want to play with your emotions. There's two victims of romance scams, though, and I hate to say it. It's a double edged sword. Both have no clue what's happened or what they got into. So Victim number one, Those are the people who had pictures and information stolen off their social media site. They used, usually not used, but they usually would not know until somebody context them like friends or family, or sometimes by the people that got scammed. And the one thing that really gets under my skin is thes sick. Owes even use their Children's pictures as a way to hook somebody into believing them and falling for them, And it's just is unacceptable. Victim number two is those that actually fell in love with the scammer. Either have given the scammers money or assets of value are was there. And then all of a sudden, you know, told him, um, that they didn't have the money in May assist with the money laundering that they're doing right now. But either way, um, some has actually given up millions of dollars and of dollars in assets. And when I say assets of value, it could be cars. It could be your house deed. Um, you sing cars, these people or your house want you toe sign your house over to the bank and send them the money. Um, and that actually has happened. I've read reports One lady, um, she was a widow, and so her. Or shipped her to cars to Nigeria for the scammer. And another lady who she She got the awakening of lifetime. When the scammer told her thio sign it, signed a deed over to the bank, take the money from the bank and actually send it to them. And she was like, Well, wait a minute. What? So this stuff that's cameras will do in order to get money from you and they will work any means necessary. So you might be wondering, How do they contact you? Well, they go to so many extremes to contact you either by social media, chat groups, dating sites, you name it, they on it. They don't care what you say or do. If you're looking for love, they will find ways to play with your emotions and take your money. Thes money. Hungry ass ninjas will not stop until they either get little or all your money and they have a quota to make. And that is to take, take, take. They contact you by social media on all sorts of platforms. Social media is one of the many major platforms they used to find both the victims to steal identities and to scam some in which searches those that just had broken up complicated relationships, divorced, widowed with or or just playing single. They prey on your loneliness to achieve their monetary goals. So one of these platforms I mentioned a few Facebook because I hate to say it, but I think we all know that Facebook is the stalker's dream. In a mecca for romance scams, it has everything about you. Relationship, relationship, status, pictures, etcetera, everything. Uh, they have your D M or direct message Taken direct message you until you ah, convincing story about them. They know some will not look at their site, You know, their profiles and everything, but others will. Either way, Facebook so far has the most traffic for romance. Scamming I get asked to be a friend. Seems like every week by five different people because I put my relationship status as complicated. And let me tell you, my relationship was talking about me, not anyone in my life. I would never put my relationship on blast like that. It's nobody's business, and nobody needs to know if I'm single, married, dating, whatever. That's none of their business. But I felt like the relationship for me was complicated because I was going through a complicated time. So there you go. But instagram, it's not as detailed as Facebook or
