so things are pretty simple, than.
No email or phone on first contact, and no sending of money to people. case closed.
We all know these rules.
In every single place I've been, people always greeted me with warnings.
Yes. Scammers are everywhere. We live in a bad world, yes. But this shouldn't prevent us from using the internet , to just talk.
PS: I've received dozens of emails informing me that i could receive 1.000.000$ if i paid 250$ for some paperwork. Of course I categorized these emails as scams right away.
Carla, Although you had a bad experience it will help you in the long run. Unfortunately scammers are on all dating sites so it is good to know what to look for. Always stay on this site even if they ask you for your email address. Scammers are anxious to get off this site and get as much personal info as possible. This site is great at removing these terrible people so reporting them is the thing to do. Dont let this experience deter you in your quest for love. I have met some wonderful people on this site, especially in the chat room. Reminders to all new people: Don't leave this site to talk to someone Never give out personal information (phone #, email, full name) until AFTER you have met in person. NEVER EVER send money to anyone!! Be safe on the internet.....your personal identity should be safeguarded. Good luck.
