Online Dating Fraud and Background Checks

The video below is of a news story done by KJRH Channel 2 News out of Tulsa, Oklahoma. It is a story about online dating fraud and how one of their local citizens got scammed for thousands of dollars. The perpetrators are able to succeed by establishing communications with online daters then moving it to email and phone. After several weeks or months of building an online relationship, a sudden “emergency” arises and they ask for money. Millions of dollars a year are lost to scams like this and it’s important to be aware. After the video we’ve listed some links to background check services.
