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
