How to be safe while dating online?

Stay safe online

When it comes to online, safety is primordial; particularly when dating, you like to think you know all. Scammers and fraudsters¬†are also online, ready to get their prey. To stay safe online, you need extra precautions to stay off the predators’ target but significantly recognize them. Being aware gives you an advantage, not to fall for their tricks.

Actual danger

 The danger from scammers online is genuine, and no, it doesn’t happen only to others. They take advantage of people looking for partners via dating websites, apps or social media. They pretend to be prospective companions and play on emotional triggers to get you to provide money, gifts or personal details. Scammers create fake online profiles designed to attract you in their fishing line.

Dating and romance scammers express strong emotions for you in a short period and claim to be from another country, but travelling or working overseas often.

They play with your emotional state by trying to get your trust. Telling you everything you want to hear about a loving relationship and playing the perfect partner.

Scammers take their sweet time to gain your interest and trust. They are sending you loving letters or texts, sharing some personal information. It may take weeks or months to build what seems a romance of a lifetime. To make everything look legit, they may pretend to visit you one day.

Once they have your trust and your walls are down, they ask for money or gifts, pretending to need a personal or business emergency. 

Don’t fall for it; love is about feelings; If anyone asks you for substantial monetary, it’s a scam. Stop all contact as soon as you find out.
