Consumers use sites like Christian Mingle and , much differently than they use Amazon or i Tunes, for example.
Right away, they ask for a Yahoo address, or send me a link to look at their "photos." Yesterday, 6/8 2012, I received a dozen or so messages from a site called in the first place.
So the moral of the online dating story is:1.) Be sure to think long and hard before jumping headfirst into a dating site.2.) Before joining, be sure you are fully aware of the sites reimbursement and cancellation clauses.3.) Be sure to not let any scam, whether it be by a dating site or any other entity, go unchallenged. It's both the most coveted and elusive emotion of all time.
The sheer invisibility of the Internet allows people to adopt all kinds of fake personas and intentions. I don't have any luck connecting with someone and then when I do, they are scammers.
Married men, registered sex offenders and convicted con artists have all been busted for using dating sites, so be extra careful. I am a widow and these guys are breaking my heart all over again.
This is an ideal situation for the Internet scammer, as they typically count on people to be preoccupied with achieving positive online dating results.
