Safer ways to tackle online dating
Online dating is becoming one of the primary ways to meet each other, boasting over 40 million users in the U.S. alone, according to eHarmony. But with so many people, the world of online dating can be a dangerous one, with people trying to steal both identities and money from legitimate users. The service Backgroundchecks.org says that 1 in 10 dating site users are scammers. Some of the best ways to avoid getting roped into such traps: Do some research on pictures and profiles by searching an image used by the person. Keep conversations on the site instead of a personnel number, leaving a record file. If you do meet in person, go to a well lit and busy place, alerting a friend to were you are or bringing them with on the date.
