Romance Scam

The digital version of marriage fraud is known as "romance scam" or "love scam”. 

In this type of fraud, fake profiles are created on social media and online dating sites in order to make other people believe the fraudster is in a romantic relationship with them and ultimately to obtain financial benefits from the "partner".
