Love is in the air this month as we celebrate the special people who mean the most to us, whether it’s family, friends or partners. Here are four ways to embrace the spirit of the month and show your circle that you care.

While being in love can feel magical, make sure you and your family members know how to spot when it could do you more harm than good. Romance scams remain popular among criminals, especially online, so look out for red flags like they’re moving the relationship along too fast, are unable to meet in person and requests for money.
