After analyzing the results, the researchers found that victims of scam had used dating sites for less than four weeks, but in that short time, they lost amounts of money ranging from £50 to £63,000, which amounts to over ,000 — a painful loss.

According to a new study at the University of South Wales, sensitive and less emotionally intelligent people are more likely to be vulnerable to online dating scams.
