SAFETY TIPS

We will be successfully connecting millions of people. However, there are certain steps that all users should take to ensure that their experiences are positive and secure.

Fraud & Scam Awareness:
DO NOT SEND MONEY – They are likely scammers. Never share your personal or financial information people you don’t know.

DON’T ever send money to someone you meet online, especially by wire transfer or Western Union. Scammers often insist that people wire money, especially overseas, because it’s virtually impossible to reverse the transaction or trace the money. Don’t wire money to strangers or to someone who claims to be in an emergency. Never include your last name, e-mail address, home address, phone #, place of work, or any other identifying information in your profile or initial e-mail messages. Stop communicating with anyone who pressures you for personal or financial information or attempts in any way to trick you into revealing it.

Please be aware of the following typical scam warning signs:
Beware of fake profiles, fake pictures, requests for money, people claiming to be “out of the country” and in need of financial assistance, and stories that simply don’t add up. Use good judgment and common sense – and DON’T EVER SEND MONEY!
Great photos with vague descriptions
Odd sounding emails that could be templates
She’s immediately in love with you (“If it seems too good to be true…”)
Travel plans and scanned visas
Quickly asks to talk or chat on an outside email or messaging service
Vanishes mysteriously from the site, then reappears under a different name
Talks about “destiny” or “fate”
Recently widowed
Makes an inordinate amount of grammar and/or spelling errors
Claims to be from U.S. but currently travelling, living or working abroad
Stuck in another country due to visa problem or family emergency
Asks you for money
Foreign profiles are more likely to be scams trying to part you from your money, especially Nigerian, Eastern European and Philippine profiles. Nigerian advance-fee fraud has been around for many years, but has lately been on the rise. These scammers politely promise tons of money in exchange for help moving large sums of money out of their country. There are legitimate dating matches out there in these countries, but you need to be extra-careful and investigate the person you are looking to date. Requests for money = you’re being scammed!

Meeting In Person:
There is no substitute for acting with caution when communicating with any stranger who wants to meet you. Members should get to know a potential date well before agreeing to meet. Initial meetings should use common sense, such as meeting in a public place or including being with a friend. If you choose to have a face-to-face meeting with another member, always tell someone in your family or a friend where you are going and when you will return. Never agree to be picked up at your home. Always provide your own transportation to and from your date and meet in a public place with many people around. Be careful, don’t believe everything you hear.

Background Checks:
WE DO NOT ROUTINELY SCREEN OUR USERS, INQUIRE INTO THE BACKGROUND OF OUR USERS, ATTEMPT TO VERIFY INFORMATION PROVIDED BY OUR USERS OR CONDUCT CRIMINAL SCREENINGS OF OUR USERS.

Health Background Checks:
If a relationship leads to sexual contact, you potentially are at risk for a variety of health hazards and /or pregnancy. We do not screen the health background of our members. We recommend that neither of you have sexual contact until you have an STD screening. Make sure to consult your physician or public health authorities for safety advice.
