Jialat lah, it seems that middle-aged Chinese women in Singapore aren’t feeling the love.

So much so, that many of them are falling for love scams over the internet.

Authorities have received 190 reports of internet love scams this year involving some S$7.5 million being conned off victims.

A whopping 87 percent of the victims are women between the age of 30 to 59 years old.

70 percent of the victims were Chinese.

Close to 50 percent of the victims held executive to managerial level jobs.

Scammers approached the victims on social media platforms such as Facebook, Meetup.com and Skout.

They developed a “relationship” with the victims, then claimed they were facing financial difficulties and asked the victims for money.

Men aren’t off the hook when it comes to online scams.

However, unlike the ladies, they tend to fall for sex scams instead, where they are duped into paying in advance for a sexual service that never takes place.
