There's a nude photo scam going around — and it's as bad as it sounds

The AARP has a new bare bones warning that seems quite fitting around Valentine’s Day. 

Hot off the scam alert: Don’t send nude photos. 

Sure, it sounds a little wacky. The AARP advising its members ages 50 and older not to be flashing the flesh? But it’s a new twist on the old romance scams that drive people to lose their shirts. 

Think about it: Do you want a picture of your junk to end up in the hands of your mother? Or your boss? Or your pastor?

But that’s exactly the kind of threat scammers will make to break your heart and extort the first $500 — and then another $500 and more. 

“Wow, wouldn’t that be mortifying for your mom to be seeing” a photo of your privates, said Amy Nofziger, director of victim support for the AARP Fraud Watch Network.
