- Stop communicating with anyone who attempts to pressure you into providing your personal or financial information or who seems to be trying to trick you into providing it.
There is no reason for anyone to ask you for money or your financial information, whatever sad or sob story they give.
Always keep your bank and account information private.
Be Responsible and do your own Research - There is a limit to an online dating provider’s ability to check the backgrounds of users and verify the information they provide.
They cannot do a criminal records check on every user.
And a person can become a problem without having a record.
Therefore, don't get a false sense of security because you're on a dating site; do your own research to learn more about someone and make informed decisions before you decide to meet.
- Remember that overtly sexual, provocative or controversial usernames could attract the wrong kind of attention. Stay in control when it comes to how and when you share information.
Don't include your contact information such as your email address, home address, or phone number in your profile or initial communications.
