Dating sites hoax

A Singles’ Dating Convention member sent this to me: “I’ve recently joined a different singles’ site and am running into the same issue I’ve had with the previous ones I’ve been involved in.

It seems that somehow my profile targets only those that are looking for money, or are spam. For example, the other night I got a message from a lady on Plenty Of and responded to her and then she quickly responded giving me her Yahoo screen name to IM her.

Again, both men and women can and have fallen victim to online dating scammers, but women tend to be targeted more aggressively.

Interestingly, the AARP says that men fall victim to these scams more often, but that women are more likely to report the scam.

You get to know the person, perhaps over weeks or months. All of a sudden they request a short-term loan for some personal crisis. These images can be used later on to blackmail you.

This can also occur with naked photos that you send by mobile phone to others (‘sexting’).

Put on your battle gear because dating has become a minefield strewn with fakes ready to blow up in your face …

they’ll tell you everything you want to hear, but at a price.

The life he described would all be theirs, if they could just get those few final obstacles out of the way…Dating fraud is becoming more sophisticated, more successful – and more devastating to its victims.

According to police, such fraud increased by 16 per cent in 2014-15, with recorded losses of more than £33 million.

Judith Lathlean, a 67-year-old, Oxford-educated professor, made headlines in December last year when she courageously revealed how she had paid £140,000 to a man she met on a dating site (but never met face to face).

People are often ashamed to come forward and admit that they’ve been duped.

It’s not a good feeling to have been taken advantage of, and a scheme that’s so obvious in hindsight is even harder to admit to. If you date online, take precautions to protect yourself.
