Victim of romance scam loses $30,000 | #datingscams | #lovescams | #facebookscams | #datingscams | #love | #relationships | #scams | #pof | #match.com | #dating

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (KFOR) – Erin Hawkinson of Mustang/Yukon had a therapy private practice, her own home, and thousands of dollars in Bitcoin before she became a victim of a romance scam. She is now telling her story in the hope that others don’t fall for the same scam.

“I trusted my heart on this and thought it was him. I was sure it was him,” said Hawkinson.

KFOR interviewed Hawkinson in a church shelter with her three daughters nearby. Hawkinson emotionally explained the timeline of events that led to her losing nearly everything after what she thought was a six-month relationship. Near the end of the interview she called and spoke with the man she believed scammed her.

Hawkinson said that she doesn’t normally fall for scams and that as a therapist she didn’t expect what ended up happening.

“I was thinking that because I had the knowledge as a therapist I could somehow save myself and I didn’t,” said Hawkinson. “I still fell for it, I still fell in love with someone and I still believe it was him six months later.”

Hawkinson said that she had started messaging a person named Jeffrey Alex.
