  • Police warn of new online dating scam

    COLUMBUS, OH—Columbus police are warning the public about a growing wave of internet scams targeting users of dating apps. Detectives report scammers are tricking people into sharing explicit photos and then claiming the photos were sent to minors. The scammers are posing as police officers and intimidating their victims into paying money to avoid alleged legal consequences.

    Officials say these scam schemes have evolved, and scammers can now spoof phone numbers of police departments and other agencies to appear more credible. Police stress that real law enforcement agencies would never ask for money through dating apps or social media to resolve legal issues.

    Columbus Police advise anyone who encounters such scams to cease all communication and report the incident to local authorities immediately, stressing the importance of being cautious and skeptical when interacting online, especially with unknown individuals.

    Police also recommend verifying suspicious interactions by calling the supposed agency's number directly to confirm the identity of the person on the other end. This precaution can prevent people from falling for such sophisticated scams.

    Residents are advised to stay alert and protect themselves by educating themselves on the tactics used by these scammers.
