In this month of Valentines celebrations, we wanted to share a warning about online dating hoaxes. Be wary of someone trying to cultivate a relationship online that eventually asks for money for a plane ticket, or to help with a health issue. They may request that you wire funds, buy gift cards or even give them access to your debit or credit card.
Be very suspicious of anyone asking you for money in online relationships. If you suspect fraudulent transactions on your credit card, log into your online account and lock your card, or call customer care to shut down your card and get a new one reissued.
