Date Site Users Regularly Scammed

Scammers are using dating sites to take advantage of people? Who knew? Remember back in the old days when you had to meet your date face to face before you were scammed, robbed or beaten. Ahhh, those were the days. wink

Research showed that 48% of those questioned in the UK, France and Germany for the survey had received spam and scam messages from others on dating services. Around 32% had received requests for cash from the people they got talking to and 28% had been catfished - ie tricked by someone who had assumed a fake identity by stealing images or videos. About 32% had been threatened with the release of compromising images they had shared and 11% had seen this content put online without their consent.
