Tight online dating
- 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.
Password & Security - Be careful when accessing your account from a public or shared computer so that others can't view or record your password or personal information.
- Be wary of opening email attachments from someone you have only just met - Ensure that you keep your internet security software up to date.
Check to see if the person you're interested in is on other social networking sites like Facebook, do a web search to see if there are other records of the person online, and if possible use google image search to check the profile photos.
Money Requests Are Your Red Light - Why would someone need to borrow money off somebody they have never met, or only just met?
Don't include your surname or any other identifying information such as your place of work either in your profile or when you first make contact.
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.
