Tips safe internet dating
The Risks Privacy Maintain privacy and avoid identity theft or fraud.
Preventing Identity Theft Your identity is precious. Viruses & Spyware A basic understanding of computer viruses and spyware.
This is a very important tip because it’s a common ploy of online thieves to persuade you to do things like opening a bank account that they have access to so that they can deposit money into it.
They invent some reason for you to draw out the money and send it to them, which you do because everything looks ok.
Be Realistic Prince (or Princess) Charming may very well indeed be waiting for you online, but you should also set your expectations just a little bit lower. Don't believe that everyone who shows interest in you is worth your time.
After all, you're looking for a good, mutual match, not someone to swoon over.These days you're in the minority if you don't know at least one person who met their current husband, wife or partner on an online dating site.According to a recent survey, one in five people in a new committed relationship and one in six couples married during the last three years met their significant other using an online dating service.Thieves who prey on people looking for dates online are most likely to be after one thing – your money.So don’t ever give them any or enter into any financial transaction with them no matter how plausible their story is.
