Scammers are targeting lonely ­singles on dating sites with the prospect of love – and money.

The crooks set up false profiles to woo their victims before sweet-talking them into a get-rich-quick scheme.




It involves downloading a currency trading phone app tempting users to plough savings into a foreign exchange investment company. But both the app and the firm are fake.

The worldwide con has been reported to British fraudbusters. Ex-detective Mark Williams-Thomas told us: “It’s a sophisticated scam worth millions and is operating all over the globe.”

Victims here include maths tutor Eva Kedoula, 53, who lost £35,000. She was duped by a profile on Facebook Dating, falling for a 34-year-old single man called Jesse.

Eva was fooled by the scam

After weeks of being groomed, the mother-of-two, who is on Universal Credit, had remortgaged her home and ploughed tens of thousands into the foreign exchange investment firm he said could make her rich.

Singletons’ savings have been similarly plundered in China, Japan and Central America, with a fortune passing through a network of bank and Bitcoin accounts.
