After decades of being hobby-less, I am happy to announce that I now have a hobby: I report scammers on dating websites.
It might not be as fun a hobby as, say, collecting stamps or crocheting decorative covers for cushions, but it is rather satisfying nevertheless, in a flapping flies kind of way.
I came up with this hobby when I discovered a phenomenon I had not been aware of: romance scams.
This was when I had just started experimenting online dating.
Because the website is still kept on some mirrors, it continues Since 2000, groups such as the Animal Welfare Institute and The Humane Society of the United States have received hundreds of complaints.
