Landline dating services
I’m the compulsive type who has a phone in every room and hates to miss a call, so at home in upstate New York I paid a hefty price for phone service as part of a very expensive package from Time Warner Cable.
He may also send you checks to cash since he’s out of the country and can’t cash them himself, or he may ask you to forward him a package. You were targeted by criminals, probably based on personal information you uploaded on dating or social media sites.
And relying on my cell as my only phone makes me nervous.
If I lost it or dropped it in the toilet (which happens to people more often than you’d think) I’d be in big trouble.
One way to steer clear of these criminals altogether is to stick to online dating websites with nationally known reputations.
Finally, the FBI advises not to send money through any wire transfer service to someone you met online.
