Romance Scam Leads to Suicide

So often victims of this type of scam do not come forward and family members left behind are too overwhelmed and humiliated to report that a loved one’s death was the result of a scam. Bravo to the son in this ABC-TV report for his courage in stepping forward and telling his late father’s story: Romance scam ends in suicide.

    I am in shock… I too have been victimized by someone on line. He was the first and only man I corresponded with after signing up for the dating site. Fortunately, I did not fall for his plead for money… I cut off the contact quickly , but I am truly devastated… The most difficult part is coming to terms with realizing that he was not real…we will never meet and
    never have a life together. I know I am very
    fortunate because much worse things could have happened. But I’m not sure my heart will ever mend.
