Romance scammers are people who create fake online identities to target vulnerable people and exploit their emotions for financial gain.

They often use social media, dating apps, or online forums to find their victims and establish a false emotional bond with them. They then ask for money, gifts, or personal information and disappear once they get what they want.

McKayla said she felt “betrayed” and “heartbroken” by the scam and warned others to be careful when talking to strangers online.

She hoped to find the real Dacre Montgomery someday and tell him what happened. She also wanted to pursue her filmmaking dreams and make a documentary about her experience.
