Online Dating Safety Awareness Month Begins

(Online Dating Magazine - February 1, 2011) Online Dating Magazine today announced that February is Online Dating Safety Awareness Month. As such, the publication has launched a new Website - and will be doing several online dating safety features throughout the month.

Every year millions of dollars are lost to scammers who use online dating services to find "victims of romance". The scammers will email, chat, and even talk on the phone and once they sense you have fallen in love with them (without meeting) the scam begins.

Usually located in Nigeria, scammers don't use that in their online dating profiles. Many will say they are from the United States, UK, or another country. They don't want you to have any red flags when they begin conversations with you. It is only later that the scam somehow involves Nigeria as they need you to send money there. It could be that they have to go to Nigeria for a "business trip" or "to visit my son who is going to boarding school there". Whatever the excuse, the majority of scams will eventually involve Nigeria since that's where the money will be delivered (usually via a wire transfer service).

Educating yourself about the many elaborate scams is important to avoiding being scammed. So Online Dating Magazine is raising awareness of online dating scams and online dating safety so that online daters can have a more enjoyable and prosperous online dating experience.

Online dating safety isn't just about scams. It's also about protecting your identity and being safety concious when out on a date with someone you met online. It's also about avoiding liars (i.e. married people posing as singles) and making sure you know what to do in a variety of situations that may arise.

Throughout the month of February 2011 Online Dating Magazine will be dealing with the issue of online dating safety both at its home site and at the new Online Dating Safety Awareness site.
