Online dating sites work hard to moderate profiles, however it is always worth doing some research of your own before meeting someone for the first time.
You are online to meet people and make new relationships: not to act as a charity or in search of investments.
Any offer that’s “too good to be true” is to be avoided.
Remember sexually explicit, provocative or controversial user names could attract the wrong kind of attention.
Stay in control when it comes to how and when you share information and don’t share personal details until you are ready.
Dating sites, the police and others work to keep scammers off sites.
