  • First and the most important rule of any online dating is: Never send money to someone you have only met online and haven't met in person.
  • You should never give your credit card or online account details to someone you have only met online and haven't met in person. Neither you should never give your credit card or online account details by email or by using other online messaging systems.
  • When you meet someone interesting in a social network and you agree to meet in person you should always tell your family and friends where you are going and who you are going to meet.
  • You should always keep in mind that human trafficking, marriage frauds in order to get visa or residence permit and money laundering are all criminal offences.
  • Don't get involved with human trafficking. You should never force anyone to do sex work. You should never interact with human traffickers and never buy any sexual services from a victim of a human trafficking. If you even suspect human trafficking or that someone may be forced to do sex work you should consider reporting it to police and avoid interaction.
  • You should never agree to transfer money for someone else or to marry someone just so he or she can immigrate to another country.
  • Don't get tempted by offers of money or other rewards to marry a person just for his or her immigration purposes. Don't feel you must help somebody by being part of a marriage of convenience.

Watch for the following warning signs listed below. These warning signs may indicate that the person you've met is fraudulent.

  • You meet someone on a social network and their profile picture or photograph looks like it’s from a magazine or downloaded from a web site. Watch for water marks or signatures in a picture. You can also do a Google picture search to get more information of the suspicious picture.
  • After just a few contacts someone profess strong feelings for you and suggests moving the conversation away from the social network preferring email or phone instead.
  • After just a few contacts someone asks for money, gifts or your bank account/credit card details. Even if the person has gained your trust you should always keep in mind the most important rule: Never send money to someone you haven't met in person.
  • The email or messages are poorly written, vague or containing specific information which seems to be taken directly from news articles, repeats itself, you are addressed by the wrong name, or the email is not personally addressed at all.
