    With Valentine's Day just a day away, the FBI is warning of online dating scams. The bureau received more than 15,000 reports linked to romance scams last year. More than half of the complaints involved losses of money. Tony Dokoupil reports.

    I would never have believed how many women would send 500 or $1000 to a complete stranger on a dating site when they were told his son or kid was in desperate need of something...When I meet one like this, that ends that..Dumb and dumber.

    It's funny, but once they find they've been scammed are usually of a bad mindset at that point...Become evil bitches..Now if a woman lost a million$, than that's a whole nother animal...

    You sure that woman isn't a tranny?

    Looks like she scammed herself.
