There is a group of romance scammers that are operating on high end dating sites. They are well organized and use an appealing story line involving a fake business in the field of renewable energy. They are currently targeting middle-aged women on Elite Partner (Germany).

The typical profile of the scammer is a widower in his fifties who lost his wife to cancer. He is the CEO of his own company, most likely in Germany. He has just been awarded a large business contract which requires him to travel far away for an extended period. He will suggest switching to e-mail or online chatting as the preferred way to communicate, yet the video feature of the chatting application won’t work for ‘technical’ reasons. He will be very attentive and concerned about the wellbeing of his targeted victim, and will speak extensively about wanting a committed relationship with a seriously inclined woman. He will gradually start sharing details about his business project. Once he feels he has successfully established a strong enough bond and is very close to returning home to meet his victim, there will be a major setback in his project that will require money.
