Romance fraud is devastating and hurts people both emotionally and financially, Action Fraud has seen in excess of a 25% rise in reports in the last year  so raising awareness to this type of criminality is crucial, especially at a time when more people are turning toward the internet, looking to find comfort and companionship in what can be very lonely challenging times. ‘Between August 2019 and August 2020, Action Fraud received over 400 reports a month from victims of romance fraud in the UK’, over recent months this has increased to over 600.’ Financial losses can be huge and losses reported by victims during this time totalled £66,335,239, equating to an average loss per victim of just over £10,000’.
