(HealthNewsDigest.com) - If you're looking for love, you might end up on an online dating site, where, as some people will attest, you'll meet all kinds of people.  Unfortunately, though, you might just meet some scammers. So, especially as Valentine's Day nears, look out for warning signs of a scam, such as any request for money for any reason, and any mention of wiring money.

To learn more, read the FTC's Online Dating Scams.

The Federal Trade Commission works for consumers to prevent fraudulent, deceptive, and unfair business practices and to provide information to help spot, stop, and avoid them. To file a complaint in English or Spanish, visit the FTC's online Complaint Assistant or call 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357). The FTC enters complaints into Consumer Sentinel, a secure, online database available to more than 2,000 civil and criminal law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and abroad. The FTC's website provides free information on a variety of consumer topics. Like the FTC on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and subscribe to press releases for the latest FTC news and resources.
