All your emails are read and the good TV is over for the night. You bring your laptop out of hibernation and start to scroll. Unsure what to do, you open that dating app and start to swipe.No matter what our age, background or relationship status, we’re all connected by one common theme – our quest to find love.However, as communication has become more real-time, and our reliance on being constantly connected grows, the ways in which we date and go about pursing new relationships has inevitably changed.Millions of Americans visit online dating websites every year hoping to find a companion or even a soulmate.But as Valentine’s Day gets closer, the FBI wants to warn you that criminals use these sites, too, looking to turn the lonely and vulnerable into fast money through a variety of scams..
I finally got the time to make this post and make a detailed review.
Most people who have performed this late-night ritual will say that no, it’s not the best way to handle loneliness.
Any sense of hope for connection is wiped out with one, “Hey baby, you’re sexy.” You plummet back to Earth.
These criminals—who also troll social media sites and chat rooms in search of romantic victims—usually claim to be Americans traveling or working abroad. While their most common targets are women over 40 who are divorced, widowed, and/or disabled, but every age group and demographic is at risk. You’re contacted online by someone who appears interested in you.
He or she may have a profile you can read or a picture that is e-mailed to you.
