People looking for love online should hold on to their wallets.

More than 12,500 people filed romance scam complaints with the FBI in 2015, losing more than 0 million to fraudsters. Here’s how it works: Romance scammers might persuade you to drain your bank accounts, max out your credit cards or even sell your home -- all to send them the cash. You could unwittingly become part of money laundering or drug trafficking schemes.

As Internet romance has become more accepted in society — and grown into a more than billion market — fraudsters have found ways to monetize the search for a partner, with organized crime rings around the globe now getting in on the action.

However, while fraud rates are relatively flat, it's becoming more sophisticated, said Molly O'Hearn, Iovations' vice president of operations and co-founder.

Scammers using false identities to gain the confidence of their marks is nothing new.

But the rise of online dating sites make it easier than ever for people to create fake personas for scams. Online dating has helped plenty of people find love, but users should keep in mind that some of those profiles are maintained by scammers.

"They slowly become part of the victim’s dreams." Sluppick’s organization provides support and education to those who lose their hearts -- and often a chunk of their finances -- to scammers.

According to the FBI, romance scams and similar confidence scams cost consumers more money than any other kind of Internet fraud.

In 2015, the last year for which data is available, consumers lost more than 0 million this way.

If you’ve wired money to a scammer: Both Western Union and Money Gram have websites with information on filing complaints.

Western Union agreed in January 2016 to a 6 million settlement with the FTC over allegations of looking the other way and allowing fraud and money laundering.
