My sister is currently being romanced by a scanner. She has not sent any money but would not believe me when I told her it was a scam. What can I do to report this and get rid of this person. I can get the information from her about him.

Very sorry to hear about the scam. Please know there are other types of the romance scam then requesting money from the victim. She could get recruited by mafia to perform unknowingly money laundering for them, which could send her for years in prison if convicted. They also use their "online lovers" to accept and reship the parcels bought with stolen credit cards or bank accounts. They can brake into her devices and steal the info for creating bank accounts and online fake profiles. All those are very danger things and whoever know is dealing with 419 scammers should block them and ignore immediately.

Please post : fake profile, email address, phone number, SKYPE ID, stolen pictures, first message. Hopefully we can find some more proves that she deal with criminals and then she will cease all communication.
