Swindling

Today, I got dumped, but not before he swindled me out of my savings. This done by my sweetheart from 16 years ago, whom I reunited with when he called me 7 months ago. I had no reason not to trust him, his brother has been one of my BFFs for 20 years. Now I'm not only broke, but heartbroken, and have nowhere to go. FML

swindling you out of your savings is a crime. call the police.

I am sorry you were swindled. When someone normally “out of your league” expresses a sudden romantic interest (even a former lover) the interest is almost always financial. There are always appropriate levels of trust for everything: Trust a stranger to meet you in a public place in the daytime. Trust a friend or former lover re-ignited with your feelings. Trust a relative or very close friend with a small loan if you can afford to lose it. Trust no one with your lifetime savings!

It really, really depends on the circumstances. There are cases where it is illegal, but most of other time it isn't.
