A lot of people
Millions of Americans use online dating sites to meet people, but “online dating scammers” also use these sites to meet “victims”. They make fake profiles to fool you into an online relationship with them, and eventually convince people to SEND MONEY in the name of love. Some even make wedding plans before disappearing with the money.
An online love interest who asks for money is almost certainly a scam artist, and you don’t have to be stupid…often when we want to find love that we are more vulnerable than usual
Don’t be paranoid
OK so the purpose of this BLOG isn’t to make you paranoid or disillusioned! Despite the scammers online dating can still be a great way to meet someone special, but don’t forget to follow these 3 simple tips to make your experience safer.
1. Don’t give away personal information
Imagine meeting a stranger in a bar and he (or she) asks you for personal details, imagine him or her asking you for your Email, phone number or street address. Now you’d probably decline, yet online people often fail to see just how unsafe this is!
Your full identity
Remember that you don’t want to reveal your full identity until you can feel that you know the person a bit better– remain anonymous until you feel ready. Take advantage of most of the dating websites “member-to-member” messaging that protects you identity until you decide to reveal who you are
And also, leave any personal contact information out of your profile or username.
2. Never send Money.
Ignore ALL requests to send money-even if the person claims to be in an emergency. If someone asks for money it’s because they ARE a scammer…would you ask someone you met when online dating for money? Of course you wouldn’t-Yet thousands of people are scammed each year doing just this….DON”T send money for sick kids parents or ANYTHING!
3. Watch the language
Look closely at messages that people send you. The scammer will often send you an email which is full of bad grammar, for example.
“By the way I’m Green I am professional Doctor “…
Hello, I go through you profile its look nice and lovely
Match.com also gives great advice…they say:
“Be wary of communications that ask you to act immediately, offer something that sounds too good to be true, or asks for personal information. There are certain red flags to watch for that may indicate you’re dealing with a scammer. Be aware of anyone who”…
• Quickly asks to talk or chat on an outside email or messaging service
• Claims to be from U.S. but currently travelling, living or working abroad
• Vanishes mysteriously from the site, then reappears under a different name
• Talks about “destiny” or “fate”
• Claims to be recently widowed
• Asks for your address under the guise of sending flowers or gifts
• Makes an inordinate amount of grammar and/or spelling errors
• Sends you emails containing strange links to third-party websites
Something else to think about!
The stats are in on good dating photos. The more effort you put into looking your best, the more romantic options you’ll have and the better choices you have to avail yourself of. Don’t sell yourself short. You’ll want options going forward and whether you have one or two or dozens, you’ll want every one of them. Good photos give you options. Once you settle on one of your new options, the heartbreak you felt a month ago or a year ago will be a distant memory. Just like your ex…
