Online Romance And Charity Fraud.
The scammer asks for
donations, often linking to online news articles to strengthen their
story of a funds drive. The scammer's victims are charitable people who
believe they are helping a worthy cause and expect nothing in return.
Once sent, the money is gone and the scammer often disappears, though
many attempt to keep the scam going by asking for a series of payments.
The victim may sometimes find themselves in legal trouble after deducting
their supposed donations from their income taxes.
tax law states that charitable donations are only deductible if made to a
qualified non-profit organization. The scammer may tell the victim their
donation is deductible and provide all necessary proof of donation, but
the information provided by the scammer is fictional, and if audited, the
victim faces stiff penalties as a result of the fraud. Though these scams
have some of the highest success rates especially following a major
disaster, and are employed by scammers all over the world, the average
loss per victim is less than other fraud schemes.

expected payoff from the victim. Charity Fraud the victim is far less
likely to borrow money to donate or donate more than they can spare. In
rare situations, the scammer poses as a terminally ill mother, poor
university student, or other down-on-their-luck person and simply begs
the victim to send money for this charity or to sponsor there charities.
The money, you invested is that it will be repaid plus interest by some
third party at a later date.
Once the victim starts paying money
to the scammer, the scammer tells the victim that additional money is
needed for unforeseen expenses, similar to most other variants; in the
case of the ill mother, the children will fall ill as well and require
money for a doctor's care and medicine (many scammers go as far as to say
that as the sponsor of the children, the victim is legally liable for
such costs), where the student might claim that a dormitory fire
destroyed everything they own.
