If you are unable to work with Over Thirty Singles and find yourself having to go through online dating, here are 3 safety tips that may help you:
Many online dating sites are filled with overseas scamsters that are simply out to take money from unknowing consumers. They will try to start a relationship with you and create an emotional attachment. Then they will try to convince you to send them money. Most of these scams originate from thousands of miles away in Africa.
Don’t believe us?
Go to Google trends ( http://www.google.com/trends ) and perform a search on online dating and look at the disturbing trends.
Don’t be the next victim of an overseas scammer.
2. If someone is too good to be true then they probably are.
If someone that looks like Brad Pitt or Pamela Anderson all of a sudden says that you are the person of your dreams and you are saying to yourself “Why Me?,” then you may be a target of a scam. Do they seem real? Are they genuinely interested in getting to know you? Are they acting in a manner that doesn’t make sense?
We hate to the bearer of bad news, but there are a lot of bad people out on online dating sites. Most online dating sites invest millions of dollars in fraud detection but a lot of bad people still get through. Just be careful with online dating because there are a lot of bad people out there.
3. Never give money to a stranger and confront people who ask for money early in a relationship.
In a difficult economy, there are a lot of bad people out there trying to get money from unknowing consumers via online dating sites. Actually, they are after your money.
Don’t let them have it. You need to be able to see through the online dating lies.
Here is how the scam works. They are going to seem like the greatest person early on. They will laugh at every one of your jokes. They will pay you compliment after compliment. The next thing you know, you become emotionally attached to you.
Then one day, out of the blue, the request for money begins. You will sob story after sob story. They promise it will be one time. Don’t believe it. If they ask you for money before you have ever met their parents, then there is a serious red flag and the relationship.
And guess what. You probably aren’t the only person they are scamming. Most online scammers try multiple victims at once.
So don’t be the next victim. Our rule is that you haven’t met anyone in the family, they have not earned the right to even bring up money requests.
