SCAM NEWS: Three U.K. Scammers Arrested Over Dating App Scam Across Greater Manchester

Three people have been arrested over allegations fraudsters posed as women to steal thousands of pounds in a dating app scam in Greater Manchester.

Two men and a woman, aged 35 to 41, were detained in Gorton on suspicion of fraud following reports of 21 offenses between October 2018 and March 2020.

The victims were coaxed into paying up to £17,000, police said.

After the first payment was made, the suspect would demand more money and threaten them with violence.

The average loss was £3,000 and most victims reported the offense to the police, at which point there was no further contact from the suspects.

Det Sgt Ian Thomas urged “anyone who thinks they have been a victim of this type of crime to report any suspicious messages or threats to police”.

How Do You Properly Report Scammers?

It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.

Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:

  1. Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance [use caution, not advisable in all countries]
  2. Your National Police or FBI «www.IC3.gov» OR from within the U.S. «tips.FBI.gov»
  3. The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network «HERE» or on «www.Anyscam.com» [available anywhere]

This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
