Dating Scam – How To Avoid It?
Every year many people become victims of online dating scammers. The intention of dating scammers is not only to steal your heart but your cash, too. They create false profiles on dating sites, claim they are seeking love or a soul mate, and make promises to gain your affection and trust. That is why the importance of being familiar with the scam types and recognizing the scam signs can not be underestimated, if you do not want to fall victim to one of the many scams widely used online.
How to recognize a scammer? As we’ve mentioned, the only one goal of a scammer is to steal your money. A decent member of any site will never ask for any financial help. At some point of your communication scammer will do this. The most popular reasons scammers ask for your help are:
She wants to meet you so badly, but doesn’t have enough money to travel to see you.
She needs money for medical treatment for one of her family members.
She has been robbed or became a victim of a tragic accident and needs your help.
What can you do to protect yourself?
First of all, never ever send money! If you follow this rule, you are safe! Test your date! Ask her questions. If she never answers them, most likely she is a scammer, who sends standard letters to 100’s of men. Try to phone her. Suggest meeting in person. Women, who are serious in their search, prefer to meet in person asap. Those who look only for cash online will find dozens of reasons not to meet you.
