What is the character of the enquiry?

Dating and romance scams are extremely destructive – both economically and emotionally. In 2013, more cash was lost to dating and love frauds than just about any variety of scam, with more than $25 million reported lost in Australia – $7.4 Million from NSW alone.

Unfortuitously, the scammers have a higher price of success, with 43 per cent of people that reported a method by an ‘admirer’ taking a loss – an average of over $21,000! These frauds also result significant emotional damage, with numerous victims reporting some slack down in relationships with relatives and buddies.
