Fraud & Scam Awareness:
DO NOT SEND MONEY – If someone asks you for money, please report the user by using our Report Abuse feature or contact us. Never share your personal or financial information to 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, hardship stories and stories that simply don’t add up. USE GOOD JUDGMENT AND COMMON SENSE
