Really!!! To me that is shocking. Most scams are pretty obvious to spot and if you follow the golden rule, if it too good to be true then it is, I’m pretty sure that 99% of the time you will be fine.

Obviously online dating sites, like other social networking sites, are a hot bed for scammers, both home grown and from overseas, so keep your wits about you, read are dating safety advice articles and you should be fine. Remember, NEVER NEVER NEVER send money to anyone or give them your bank or personal details.
