Looking for love online? A "buyer beware" warning for you. FBI statistics show that women ages 50 and older are the biggest victims of online romance scams.
Internet Crime Complaint Center says the victims are usually sucked in by a fake profile on dating site and talked into handing over thousands of dollars in cash and gifts.
Last week, Scott Campbell, the so-called "playboy con man," was arrested in Florida.
According to the Department of Financial Regulation, Campbell sold fictitious investments to dozens of women.
Authorities say he met most of those women online, under the guise of a romantic relationship.
After meeting women on sites like Match.com, they say Campbell would convince his victims to fork over money for his musical talent search business.
"What they create is not only a fake profile but a fake business that looks legitimate but it really isn't," said author and relationship expert Charles A. Johnson.
