I was just discussing with someone the ways romance scams have changed over the years.  Back when I started, scammers were much less technically aware.  It was all done on IM back then.  No webcam, no spoofing, no phishing, just sending out a whole bunch of emails and hoping someone would reply.  These days the scammers are using techniques we wouldn’t even have dreamt about back then.  That’s the worry.  You educate people on one type of scam and the scammers simply come up with a new approach and carry on scamming.
