Nancy*, a 47-year-old single mother from North Yorkshire was conned out of over £350,000 that way: “I wasn't comfortable, and then I got so far in I couldn't get myself out, and I didn't want to walk away having lost £50,000 or what-have-you, so you keep going in the hope that you're wrong and this person is genuine,” she explained to the BBC.Nancy is now facing bankruptcy, and although her case is extreme, the average victim of online dating fraud loses £10,000 according to Action Fraud.Around 7.8 million UK adults used online dating sites in 2016, up from just 100,000 in 2000.But just as dating app users are at an all-time high, so is the number of people becoming victims of online dating fraud.A new report by the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau has found that last year, singles were conned out of £39 million by fraudsters they’d met on dating sites and apps.Con artists are increasingly creating fake online profiles and tricking people on dating sites into handing over often large sums of money.The scope of people it appeals to is far reaching with men and women of all ages, backgrounds and ethnicities interested.The number of internet dating sites is continually growing and has become a very successful and effective business.

Certainly the stigma which was attached to internet dating a few years ago seems to have passed.

“A lot of the online dating fraudsters we know are abroad.

They're in West Africa, Eastern Europe and it's very difficult for British law enforcement to take action against them in those jurisdictions,” Steve Profitt, Deputy Head of Action Fraud explains.

On 17 October 2016, the document leaking organization Wiki Leaks posted an announcement on Twitter that its founder, Julian Assange, had his Internet access cut off by Ecuador.

(Assange, who has been granted political asylum by Ecuador, has been living in that country’s London embassy since 2012.) That same day, the liberal blog published a story that drew a connection between Assange’s losing his Internet access and an accusation from an online dating site that Assange had used their platform to inappropriately contact an underage girl.
