Internet fraudsters are targeting Australians in Internet Romance Scams. Fraudsters or scammers make up fake profiles from information and photographs they have found on the internet or obtained from previous victims. The scammers make contact through internet chat rooms, social networking sites or by sending out random or speculative emails to people, they then romance their victims into loving and trusting them.
After spending some time getting to know them and understanding what is important to them they use the information to persuade their victim into sending them money or gifts, usually for airline tickets, medical expenses or some emergency or another.
