Private Investigators fighting Romance Scams with Iphone App

Private Eyes Combating Romance Scams with New iPhone App

An app to identify whether an online date is a romance scammer, now available on iOS devices.

Melbourne, Australia – Building on the success of its exclusive background checking service for online daters, CupidScreen, created by Private Investigator Julia Robson, has released a downloadable tool to instantly determine whether an online lover is really a romance scammer.

Available today, the Romance Scam Checks calculates the level of risk of an online Date being a romance scammer (from five possible risk levels) by answering questions from a range of categories. The app further provides a list of worldwide agencies the user can report scams too and additional steps they can take if they are targeted by a romance scammer.

Julia Robson states: “Individuals become victims of this incredibly under-reported crime as they do not recognise the warning signs or feel too embarrassed to discuss the possibility they are being scammed to their friends and loved ones. The Romance Scam Check app allows individuals to find out if they are being scammed discreetly – saving them embarrassment, heartbreak and potentially their life savings.”

The app is currently available for Romance Scams of Nigerian origins with a similar app for Russian based scams currently under application for release.

Romance Scam Check is now available for $1.99 in the US and is priced accordingly in other regions. The app is available worldwide on the Apple AppStore.
