Getting on the internet, dating sites or social networks is not always safe. On such resource is a lot of scams that are really hidden under other names, photographs. Many of them seek out the victims - women. Especially if a woman has a profile photo where her a lot of expensive jewelry, brand clothing. Also, if you uploaded a photo of expensive restaurants. This may be a signal for the fraudster, that the girl has a good material income. So, be very careful. But there are exceptions. There are some people find each other, and live happily ever after.

My research shows that there are lots of fraudsters behind pictures posted on dating sites now, compared to olden days, as most of the pictures now appear to be lifted from model's websites.

If you meet someone online, and you want to confirm the person is real, simply type up some word or characters, ask the person to print and take his/her picture with the word or characters. Not 100% guarantee, but gives you a measure of truth.

Dont send money!

Remember we are all human behind the computer or laptop screen.  If you meet someone please do it in a public place ALWAYS!

@ Topic

My only advice - Take everything said at face value until you actually meet 'em offline.
