Almost everyone has an idea of online mail-order brides or online dating websites that stretch every possibility of matchmaking to the limit. However, there is a risk involved with these kinds of dating services.

Internet dating scams leverage on the fact that correspondence can happen between two people without each one making an effort to confirm the actual identity of the other. Because of this, the online dating service is conducive for fraudsters. In this kind of environment, exchanges of false information are possible and scams will definitely be present.

False identities are expected in Internet dating scams as what had happened to a number of US citizens who were victimized by Russian fraudsters. The Russian correspondents promises romance and love while slowly inching their way to requesting money from their overseas lovers to be able to maintain living expenses, Visa charges, and even supposed travel expenses. In situations like this, there is no way for the US citizen to verify if he is talking to a real person or not. A good thing to do is to verify the Visa application directly from the US embassy.

The FBI hosts a site called the Internet Fraud Complaint Center where citizens can file their actual encounters of Internet dating scams or complaints of suspicious sites. With this, other persons will be able to avoid these sites while at the same time identify signs that will teach them to avoid getting victimized.

The most important tip to learn is that most of the Internet dating scams can be identified through their website wherein pictures are easily distinguished as fakes. Also, online relationships that leverages on money can be a sign of the beginning of a scam. With this, the person should start verifying the identity of the other person before going deeper into the correspondence.
