RCMP are warning people who search for love online to be aware of the potential dangers.
Police say that online dating scams have increased over the past few years.
There has been 56 reported victims in Alberta since the beginning of 2017.
Police say that the scammer will make the victim think they are in love and then ask for a large amount of money for some sort of fake purpose like a medical emergency or for a family member.
Report it to local police if you feel you have been a victim or you know someone who has been one.
