The latest statistics on romance money scams are out, and oh boy, is mom upset. A whopping 20 percent more people were ripped off last year than the year before, so how do you protect your loved ones? If someone seems like the perfect match but they need money before they agree to meet you...maybe it turns out that they aren't the perfect fit. Today we call Sandra Bernado from Experian on dad's shortwave, and she drops a ton of great ideas for all of us.

Plus, in our headlines segment, we'll cover a fishing trip gone bad. How does fishing affect your money? We'll explain. We'll also tackle a recent study showing the perfect retirement strategy. What is it? I don't think the study is, in the words of a classic Princess Bride line, "what you think it is."

We'll of course have more from the world of financial planning, throw out the Haven Life line to lucky listener Kirk, who wonders about his debt. They owe money to a few different loans...which should they pay first? Of course, we'll still score with some of Doug's delightful trivia, and more.
