Consider these safety tips while you are online:

  • Guard your identity. Never give personal background information as soon as a person shows interest in you. Don’t share phone no, real name, work place, email, etc. Don’t post personal contacts to your profile. Your private life should stay private until you know the other person really well
  • Be on guard about your pictures that you share. Never share anything you wouldn’t mind your family or others seeing.
  • Take the time to study and research your potential match. If any warning signs are noticed while you are in communication with someone, never ignore it. Notify us, or go forward only with caution, informing and discussing what peculiarity you noticed in the person with your family and trusted friends. Check his or her name on social media. Never tell a potential match any of your detailed financial information as soon as you meet them.
  • Ask for photos, ask to meet. If you cannot meet a potential partner, they probably do not exist.
  • Never send anyone money. Never send money to someone you have not met in person. It is difficult to get money back from someone who may be misrepresenting themselves once it has been sent.
  • Use caution with those who want to take your conversation off the website immediately. Many times fraudsters will attempt to lure you off the website to continue communication using personal contacts and email accounts.
  • Read the signs. Be cautious of individuals who claim to have fallen instantly in love, or who say they are traveling or working overseas. Beware of people who prey on emotions.
  • If a person uses inappropriate words or behaviour block them immediately.

  • Tell someone, friends or family about where you’re going, and keep them posted.
  • If it’s possible, ask to meet in person, maybe to a group outing and always in a safe, public place: coffee shop, restaurant, etc.  If the individual offers various excuses or refuses to meet, this may be a sign they are not who they say they are.
  • Use your own transportation to get to and from the meeting place.
  • Don’t drink any suspicious drinks offered to you. Watch if the person is making extra effort to force you drink it.
