Discreet online dating doctors dating site in nigeria
Experts say online daters are always wise to be skeptical regarding what someone they've met online, and not in the flesh, tells them.
Most dating websites—even ones that cost money—don't vet the people who sign up.
Type the name of the person you met online into Google or Bing and see what comes up.
Run a search: Copy the images your online correspondent has posted to his or her profile, then run them through a reverse-image search engine, such as Tin Eye or Google Images.
If they come up associated to a person with another name or who lives in a different city, you have good reason to suspect they were stolen from someone else’s profile.
“There was one woman who got scammed for over a million dollars, her whole retirement nest egg,” says Farquhar.
The CR survey found that 35 percent of respondents who’ve tried online dating felt they had been grossly misled by someone’s online profile, and 12 percent said they’d been scammed.
