Const. Michael Russell says the department has received two reports in the last week of people who used a dating website being the victims of fraud.
Russell says the victims are promised a share of profits or other riches if they send money overseas to handle shipping and storage of a large quantity of gold.
He says one victim sent over $50,000 before the fraud was discovered.
Investigators say get-rich-quick schemes are almost always fraudulent and they urge anyone offered such an opportunity to report it to police or the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.Suggest a correction
