Internet dating warning
To find one all you have to do is create an account and log in, the fake contact requests and private messages will start flooding in and, in some cases, you may even have to upgrade your account to a paid premium service in order to read them.
If you’re not sure someone is fake here’s a hint, the messages contain only the simplest and most general types of sentences that could be interpreted in a dozen ways, and get repeated over and over again from message to message.
They may “meet” people and begin an “e-relationship” that ends in loss of information, loss of finances or both, or worse.
Catfishing is one of the most common scams on the Internet.
What happens next is a charge to the credit card for membership to a XXX streaming webcam for 0 per month.
Malware and/or hackers could target traffic coming to or leaving a known dating site in order to intercept vital information.
When logging onto one of the dozens of dating and hook-up sites on the Internet what becomes quickly evident is that many, if not most, of the users on the sites are fake.
