Norfolk is the national capital of online dating scams, in-depth cyber-crime data reveals today.

A total of 16 people per 100,000 in the county were duped into transferring money to scammers using fake profiles on dating sites after building their trust. It showed Norfolk was also a hotspot for lottery scams with 22 in 100,000 paying to enter a non-existent prize draw, compared with 10 per 100,000 nationally.

Avoid giving away too many personal details when dating online.

Revealing your full name, date of birth and home address may lead to your identity being stolen.

The capital also saw frequent reports of regular payment fraud, which sees people duped into changing a direct debit, standing order or bank transfer, by pretending to be an organisation the victim regularly pays, such as an energy or phone company.
