Welcome Letter – Online Dating Magazine

Dear Reader,

I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to Online Dating Magazine – a premiere watchdog group and educational publication for online daters and singles who are thinking of using the Internet in their search for love.

Online dating has turned into a vast online empire with thousands of online dating services competing for millions of online daters. The online dating empire is a billion dollar a year industry, mostly controlled by a small handful of massive online dating services (i.e Match.com and eHarmony). As the industry continues to grow, the need for emerging information covering the industry also grows. That’s where Online Dating Magazine comes into play.

Online Dating Magazine, online since July 2003, has been designed as an educational and interactive resource for online daters and online dating services. We seek to provide educational information to online daters in order to help improve your dating experience. Think of us as the “consumer reports” of the online dating industry.

As publisher of Online Dating Magazine, I am dedicated to making sure you have a great experience every time you visit. Perhaps you’ve already noticed that Online Dating Magazine is free of pop-up ads and intrusive banner ads. That’s because we are dedicated to making Online Dating Magazine a non-intrusive destination for your enjoyment. We will never sacrifice principle for money.

Every page of Online Dating Magazine is unique. Our staff of writers work tirelessly to bring you the most helpful points of view. When you find a page of content that is particularly useful, we hope you will Like it, Tweet it, or share it with others.

I look forward to serving you now and in the future as we embark on a journey through the world of online dating to bring insightful and educational material to life. Thank you for being a part of this journey.

It is an honor to have you as a regular visitor.

Best Wishes,

Joe Tracy, publisher
Online Dating Magazine

    I have been receiving letters and photos from young women in Ghana, I did not sign up for this service, i do not know which service has my information or how they got it. i would like to be removed, as i am a married man, and do not wish to be in the service, or continue to receive any letters or photos from anyone. please let me know how i can find out how i can be removed or how i was signed up.

    It’s likely that you did not sign up for a service, but are on a spam list (like millions of others) that sends these out. These are romance scam bait emails hoping to get people to engage them so that they can eventually scam them. You can learn more about romance scams in our romance scam section at https://www.onlinedatingmagazine.com/romancescams .

    So the question then becomes how can you get rid of these emails? There’s no sure-fire way outside of deleting them. However, you can set up your email to automatically delete the emails based either on the address (if it’s consistent) or certain words that appear in these emails, but not your normal emails (i.e. “I want to get to know you better”). I’m not sure what email program you use, but most have a Block User or Message Filter function that allows you to achieve these results.

    Other options include changing your email address or using a third-party service that requires people to fill out a CAPTCHA code in order to send you an email (they only have to do this once then all future emails will automatically go through). This stops most of these type of spam messages from ever reaching you.

    A good place to start is with the email program you have, learning more about the blocking and spam features they have and how to set those up. This should enable you to get rid of some of those unwanted Ghana messages you’ve been getting.
