Jewish Dating Service gives Tips to help prevent Online Daters Being Scammed
New York, NY— November 21, 2011 – As with most things in life, everything
has its pros and cons, and online dating is no different. “Romance scams” as they
have been termed, involve scammers trying to con and take advantage of those looking
for love online. This could involve scammers using a stolen identity, stolen credit
cards and fake photos. Due to the anonymity of the online world, they can even be
scamming various people at the same time.
Statistics have shown that on many legitimate dating sites, one in ten profiles
are fake. In response, Jewish Dating Site JRetroMatch.com has produced a list of
ways to identify scammers so that online daters will be aware of it, to prevent
devastating consequences. Victims can be left crushed both emotionally and financially.
Sites, such as JRetroMatch, and its Orthodox Jewish dating partner site SawYouAtSinai.com,
have the advantage of having more than 350 expert matchmakers facilitating and setting
up its 30,000 members. Profiles are available to the matchmakers first, before they
are matched and shown to other members. Having a matchmaker review the profiles,
and making calls to members enables fraudulent profiles to be caught before they
are visible to those dating online. Although JRetroMatch highly recommends that
the Jewish singles independently investigate any person that they go out with, the
site does look into members, and does selective reference-checking.
