Dating Scams Online – Beware

Posted by & filed under New Dating.

When it comes to online dating there are so many additional pitfalls that we need to be aware of – and avoid because not to, could prove very costly.

This video offers some pretty basic but sensible advice. In fact, I was surprised to see such obvious topics covered and yet, what is obvious to one person obviously isn’t …. obvious ….. self-evident to another.

So, please don’t take this the wrong way. If you are pretty savvy in life and up with all the dating scams that life has to offer you might like to skip this video.

If not, or perhaps you are getting up to speed so you can help a friend in the dating game then check out the short clip above.

Essentially, the faceless actress advises:

  • Avoid the Personals in Craig’s List unless you are prepared to be shocked
  • Don’t give money to people who live a long way away who say they want to visit you (duh!!)
  • Avoid sending money to people who want to send you a gift (a no brainer!), and
  • Give a wide berth to people who say they are in trouble and need your help (unless you are a private charity)

So, now you have my thoughts. Watch the video and leave your comments below.
