Is internet dating safe

Rated 3.89/5 based on 675 customer reviews

If the US and UK are experiencing the same trends, then online dating is indeed becoming more dangerous.

Then again, they may not be experiencing the same trends.

In the past you met your partner through friends, at work or from socialising, now we meet people using apps, social media and dating websites.Recent numbers from the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau suggest that dating scams reached a record high in 2016.Some 3,889 online dating-related fraud incidents were reported, resulting in a record loss of £39m.Meeting someone online is very different, you might meet someone virtually who lives in a different city or country, and because you don’t meet face to face you build a connection through emails, messages and chats.This type of communication means you are unfortunately vulnerable to fraud.
