Love is a four-letter word. So is scam. They come together in "blissful matrimony" on the Internet to con unsuspecting victims emotionally and financially.
Here's how: You fall in love with someone you meet on social media. You feel elated at being wooed, but also a tad wary. You take small steps, but the person on the other end seems to be head-over-heels in love with you. You chat on WhatsApp or WeChat, post updates on Facebook and Twitter, talk sweet nothings on Skype or Hangouts, and finally agree to meet in person.
