A friend of mine, who is in her early 50's has recently decided to start dating again. She joined a popular online dating site (the same one where I met my DH 6 years ago). She has 'met' a man and has instantly fell in love. Much of what she has told us has raised a lot of red flags. We have asked her to procede with caution, but she has been telling us that she is a big girl. I have decided to try and do some research on this guy and have come up with NOTHING. I then googled "online dating scams" and came across a scam where a man claims to be a widow, currently working out of the country and has a young child. This matches her new man exactly. I then found a copy of a letter someone posted that a scammer had emailed to her. Again, it was pretty much the same format, just slightly different wording. We are concerned about her, but we are afraid she won't listen to us. How do we tell her?Answer Question

First of all, present the information you have. Suggest she sends no money. Obviously it sounds like a scam. If she doesn't listen, then she'll regret it later. I hope she listens to her friends.
