For example, scammers will often ask you to communicate with them outside of the dating site—via email, through Facebook, or even on Skype.
These methods give them better access to you and can help them gather additional information that they can use to con you.
Anyone can be the target and victim of these scams—men, women, young, old, gay, straight, white, black, Asian, Hispanic… But the FBI states that women who are “over 40, divorced, widowed, and/or disabled” are prime targets for scammers.

Most scammers choose victims that are older than they are, for example, so if someone who is significantly younger than you says that they’re interested, it could be cause for concern.
