Victims of web dating scams lose thousands of pounds

Help

After BBC South's programme Inside Out featured a woman who lost £80,000 pounds in an internet dating scam, others realised they too were being scammed by fake internet partners fleecing them for money.

One victim believed she had an online relationship with an American soldier, but ended up transferring thousands of dollars to Nigeria.
