Stay Away From Senior Dating Scams
Seniors are some of the first people to find themselves in a dating scam. The reason for this is that many scam artists take seniors for granted and take advantage of their lonliness and eagerness to be with someone. For this reason they are more likely to send money right away when someone that they meet asks them to in order to get a visa or pay for a plane ticket. Below you will find some of the main signs that you are being scammed.
- If anyone asks you for money then this is the all time sign that you are running yourself into a scam. If you have never met this person in person then they are not yet trustworthy. Even If they are looking for money to come see you such as for plane airfare or for a visa it is still most likely a scam. If someone wants to come see you, then they will find other resources to see you then asking you for money.
- Those who run scams will contact you first. It is not likely that you will be searching for someone on your dating service who also happens to be a scam artist. If you receive a message from someone overseas and it seems odd to you, then you should not respond.
- Trust your instincts just like in the email. If this person does not share any information with you but just wants to know all about you and if their picture seems fake, then it is best to stop communications.
- There are usually many inconsistencies with scammers. You can pick up on them through your communications like saying the same thing in many emails, the difference in how the person expresses himself or herself and even the email style.
If you are interested in senior dating, make sure that no one is taking you for a ride. Stay away from senior dating scams and you will find yourself a wonderful, new relationship.
