Not long ago, fraudsters had to rely on the telephone and make hundreds of calls to try to hook a hapless, gullible, lonely retiree or lonely heart to perpetrate a scheme. The old-fashioned phone call is still employed as a means to contact prey, but today, with the awesome power of the internet to find potential victims, a fraudster’s work can be done online with a few fake postings of pictures, a tale of woe, a promise of untold riches or promise of everlasting love — and all of this can be written with bad grammar and spelling. If you get such messages or solicitations to send $10,000 to a stranger, delete them right away. Don’t become a victim of wire fraud.
