Online Romance Scams

Online Romance Scams are when scammers take advantage of a person through an online medium like social media or dating websites. Scammers create a false sense of trust by expressing strong emotions quickly with the intention of exploiting money, gifts, or personal details.

 

The Coalition has partnered up with FBI advocates in order to provide coordinated support to victims of online romance scams and their support system.

 

Services include:

  • 10 free counseling sessions to victims of online romance scams and their support system
  • Free unlimited 20 minute crisis counseling sessions (M-F, 8-5PM) at the Coalition’s main office located at 1030 North Ventura Rd, Oxnard, CA
  • Advocacy and accompaniment in Ventura County at a safe location (education or medical facility, police station)
  • Emergency safe housing when necessary
  • Access to our 24-hour bilingual hotline: 800.300.2181 (advocates hold privileged confidentiality)
