Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good morning. This is a scam. Money should never have been sent and this person or individuals are likely located out of the country and it is going to be very hard to catch them. You can and should contact the FBI and local police, so they can investigate this matter and speak with the dating service, so they can terminate their account, since it is being used for illegal means. If they are caught, you could obtain restitution but it may be very hard for this to happen. You should not send them another penny and should take all the information you have to the authorities, to allow them to investigate.
