How A Romance Scam Victim Ended Up Being Charged With Federal Crimes!

In this shock­ing video, we explore the true sto­ry of a female romance scam vic­tim who fell for a romance scam and end­ed up being charged with a crime. This is a true sto­ry from the files of the FBI. The vic­tim, unfor­tu­nate­ly became a co-con­spir­a­tor to crimes she com­mit­ted on behalf of the scam­mers. To make mat­ters worse, she was 81 years old.

It all start­ed with a seem­ing­ly inno­cent online rela­tion­ship that quick­ly turned into a night­mare. The vic­tim, Glen­da, fell in love with a man who she called “my love.” He show­ered her with love and atten­tion, and Glen­da felt like she had final­ly found her soul­mate. The scam­mer told her he was a U.S. Cit­i­zen and work­ing in Nige­ria.

As hap­pens in many romance scams, things took a dark turn when the man start­ed ask­ing Glen­da for mon­ey. At first, it was just a small amount for his“business”, but soon the requests became more fre­quent and larg­er. Glen­da, blind­ed by love, sent the mon­ey.

Unbe­knownst to Glen­da, the man was actu­al­ly a part of a larg­er crim­i­nal orga­ni­za­tion that was using her as a mon­ey mule to laun­der their funds. They even con­vinced her to open bank accounts in the U.S. They also induced her to play an active role in their active scams.

What even­tu­al­ly hap­pened to Glen­da, was tru­ly a night­mare. On Novem­ber 2, 2021, she pled guilty to two fed­er­al felonies. Lis­ten to Glen­da’s sto­ry, and pay atten­tion to the tac­tics used by romance scam­mers. Find out how inno­cent vic­tims can be unwit­ting­ly drawn into crim­i­nal activ­i­ty. This video serves as a warn­ing to those who might be vul­ner­a­ble to romance scams.
