FBI Warning Omits Season’s Biggest Predators

The FBI issued a Valentine’s Day themed-press release warning of the danger of online dating scams: “Millions of Americans visit online dating websites every year hoping to find a companion or even a soulmate. But as Valentine’s Day gets closer, we want to warn you that criminals use these sites, too, looking to turn the lonely and vulnerable into fast money through a variety of scams.”

But the FBI didn’t give any warning about the much greater danger of Americans being screwed by politicians.

Nor did the FBI mention the risk of getting boarhawged by spyware that the FBI or National Security Agency inject into your computer.

    I think a lot of lonely Americans enjoy being screwed by politicians. I’ve tried warning them about how these politicians don’t really love them and are just using them, but those lonely hearts keep voting for them anyway. I’ve tried to warn struggling singles that sending their money to the government just encourages these gangsters of love to want more loot, but they keep sending the dough.

    It’s sad to see sociopathic predators manipulate the emotions of lonely and desperate people looking for love in all the wrong places. It’s no wonder that the government is concerned about online dating services. Politicians are probably worried that apolitical conmen will fleece their adoring victims and leave them to relying on complicated forfeiture and eminent domain schemes to scam the lonely.

      Good points. Forfeiture is a helluva lot more complicated than simple taxation…
