It is almost as if some of their mail is sent automatically, like you are on their list and this is the next standard email that is sent out. When you indicate that you’ll be in their area and would like to get together, they can’t meet you. The pictures posted may or may not be the actual person.

When making contact with you, they start by complimenting you on your looks. This is a statement that everyone wishes to hear, but how do you know if it’s real?

Wouldn’t we rather be complimented on accomplishments or what our goals are? Charlatans tell you they love you before they have ever actually met you. Some people can sound great on the phone, but when you meet them there is nothing there; or, physically they just don’t meet your standards. The other part of the “I love you” scam is when they will say something like, “Something in me shifted, and I love you,” or, “I think I have found my soul mate.” Again, they have yet to meet you, and there hasn’t been enough time to know you well enough to truly love you in the way you wish to be loved. There is a reason they wish for you to contact them directly and not use e-mail via the dating site.

The truth is that, even the best social networking and dating site can sometimes find it difficult to detect everything, given that, many of these scammers are accessing the internet via satellite servers, using the IPs of other neighboring countries.

This is one of the predominant reasons why online users have to be on their guard.

They state that they love you in less than a month.

Online peer-to-peer, or P2P, payment systems let you send money to people quickly.Ask yourself how desperate for a relationship you are. In addition to the warning signs, here are some commonalities among scammers. They are not all over the Internet—you cannot find them on Facebook or any other sites. They must travel overseas shortly after meeting you.Remember, they have a plethora of these, but not necessarily of these traits. They state they love you before meeting you in person. How can someone honestly love you before having met you in person? How can someone want to spend the rest of their life with you when they have known you less than a month? You are using a dating site to protect your privacy and help you avoid scammers.Don’t fall for whatever their reason is to write to them directly prior to meeting them in person. They don’t answer the questions asked in your emails. Another indication that something problematic is going on is when there is distance between where you both live — and they aren’t advocating a meeting.The use of these services is a growing trend—I just read an article that estimates there will be more than 0 billion in peer-to-peer payments in the U. If you use a peer-to-peer payment system, here are some tips to keep in mind.
