Question Title

* 1. Have you ever been in contact with someone on a dating site who asked you for money? Did you break off contact or pay the money requested? Did you realise this may have been a scam?

If any of these apply to you, or you have had experience of an online dating scam and we would like your help.

An online dating scam can occur when a person sets up a false profile on a dating website with the sole aim of obtaining money from someone with whom they build a “relationship”. This scam is on the increase yet has attracted little attention. 

Your responses here will inform us further about the nature of this type of scam.

If you are willing, we would like you to complete the following questionnaire which should take about 15 minutes. This questionnaire includes questions about general information, specific questions about the scam, as well some multiple choice questions about you.

All information given will be held anonymously and treated confidentially, and you have the right to withdraw at any time.

Thank you for your time and assistance.
