We, after subscribing to dozens of questionable websites (we never recommend you do this because it is better to use good and trustworthy websites, such as romancecompassscam for every purpose related to online dating), and it seemed to us that the majority of users there were fakes and bots. Today, scammers often create fake accounts to, in one way or another, steal money from normal users or obtain their personal information.

Using for free vs using premium

Almost every website requires you to create an account, and they do this for a couple of reasons. The first and most obvious reason is that every dating website exists to make money for its creators. This is not a secret, but it is we - users, are those who have chosen. Thus, if we didn't like the pricing policy of one or another website, we simply never bought the premium account there. The second reason is less obvious but no less important. Often on dating websites, you can see that standard users have hard times connected with users with premiums. Have you ever asked yourself why? People why are serious about finding a lifetime partner online, usually are pretty fine with paying some adequate amount of money to a website, because they want to raise their chances to find good partners. On the other hand, scammers can never know whether their efforts will pay off or not, so the majority of them never buy premium subscriptions.

How online scammers act to get what they want?

Online dating scammers have mastered the skill of creating fake profiles. Even the best online dating websites may have problems with detecting those fake profiles. After creating the profile, scammers try to get to know their victims. This explains why your new online dating partner is so curious about your life and habits. Scammers fake real interest, and use this information to give you what you want to her, but only until they can use you. As soon as their victims fall in love with those fake images of people, scammers begin to create a depressive picture of their lives, claiming that they have financial problems, and so on. At this stage, they are very inventive and creative, so you may hear many different stories, but all those stories have the same final. Sooner or later, scammers begin to ask for money. They never do it openly, but they continuously bombard their partners with "their" problems, until their victims willingly send them money.

Who can become a victim?

In fact, everyone can become a victim of those people, since scammers "work" with all groups of people. Unfortunately, most often, they hit single men between 40 and 60 years old. Usually, those men are not experienced in dating and live with their partners. So, generally, the less you are experienced in dating and popular among the opposite gender, the higher the risk of becoming a victim of dating scammers. For this reason, it is important to be very careful and learn the main rules of online dating.

Is there a quick and simple way to detect a scammer?

First of all, it is crucial to understand that the "quicker" the way, the less accurate it is. But, yes, there is one way how with a certain accuracy, you can assume that this or that person is a scammer. The simplest way to detect a scammer is to analyze his or her photos. If you see that mostly they have staged photos with girls or boys looking like fashion models or even porn stars, then with 90% accuracy, you know that this is a scammer. Also, you can use Google to search for other copies of images that were posted on the Internet. If you see that someone else has posted those photos before and this person has a different name, it means that you have proof that this person is a scammer. With this prove, you can write to the administration to block the scammer's account.
