Did you swipe right on a criminal? New technology aims to verify dating profiles

Be wary of who you swipe right on in the world of online dating — it may cost you.

A woman came across a man on dating app Tinder claiming to be a U.S. Army captain and quickly fell for him. He had promised to take care of her and her children, according to a report from Gizmodo, if he could just have money to get home. By the time she realized she was being swindled, she had sent him more than $700. After that, he blackmailed her with nude photos for more money. “I don’t know if you can help, but I’m scared,” the woman wrote in a complaint to the Federal Trade Commission.
