Have you lost $$$ to a catfishing scam?

Most catfishing scams involve the exchange of money.



That’s why they’re working so hard to quickly form an emotional bond with you – so you hand over the $$$ willingly and quickly.


What should you do if you already sent them money?

  • File a police report
  • Ask the police about options to retrieve the money
  • File a complaint on https://ic3.gov
  • Wait for instructions from police before breaking off contact as they may want you to engage so they can find them
  • Save everything you have for evidence
