Romance scams on dating sites Quick free anonymous sex chat
Be aware of this by not accepting chats or email contact with random strangers, and block contact with anyone on dating sites that doesn't fall within a certain geographic range.
Make sure that, when one of these romance scammers contacts you, you let them know you're aware they aren't on the up and up and then block them.
That means printing out all emails, filing every letter received, keeping any related credit cards, wires, money orders, and/or bank receipts, printing off phone bills, writing out text messages or getting a list from your cell phone provider, filing any related canceled checks, and documenting chats received via instant message.
When the dating scam occurs through a dating site, make sure to report it through their website.
