Safety guidelines for online dating

My favourite story is that of Maria*, one of our members lost close to ,000 to a scammer from Ghana.OK, without further ado, here are our top 15 tips for staying safe on online dating sites: You need to remind yourself that you know absolutely nothing about the person you’ve just met, apart from what they’ve said on their profile.Fortunately there are a number of things you can do to get more information about them, including: This one is a no-brainer, but is easy to get wrong.I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t give them your bank details either.If you wouldn’t do either of those things in the real world, then you’re going to find it easy to stay safe online, just as long as you understand how “common sense” rules from the real world translate to the world of online dating.Unfortunately, if you are a senior, or even just over 50, then you need to be even more careful.Statistics show that seniors are not only more likely to have fallen for an online scam, they are more likely to be targeted, and when they lose money, they lose more than their younger peers.In many cases it’s simply enough to remember to behave the same way online as you would in the real world.You’d think twice before getting into a complete stranger’s car, wouldn’t you?Once they have your email address, the next step is to use it to get the login to more important information, such as your bank account.The same goes for address information, social security numbers, postal addresses, etc.
