I know. I saw a programme on the TV called For Love or Money where people who had met someone on a dating site would ask investigators to find out if the people they were talking to online were real. In most of the cases they were sending £1000's of pounds to them. In all of the cases bar none they found out the people they were talking to were fake. They would get heartbroken because they'd fallen in love with the person they thought they were talking to. Sometimes the people who's pictures had been stolen were contacted and they were so sorry this had happened to the victims. But they were victims too, because their photos had been stolen to commit these crimes.

yeah its really bad. and the sad thing is even with more police operations hunting them down, this kind of illegal activity is growing. more people are being employed on this kind of job if this is even considered a job. nothing seems will stop scammed to keep trying. i don't know if it's because of poverty, people are willing to work on this kind of jobs. i think they know what they are doing is illegal. they know they are scamming people

@hotsummer I know, it's terrible. It's very hard to track these people down, even though some have been. I can't believe people can call that a job!

@sharonelton yeah its like they track one or two of those place that operate on those illegal activities, like scammers can just transfer and set up more offices like that on other areas to avoid detection
