How to stay safe on online dating sites (by Zoya Sheftalovich - www.choice.com.au) from admin's blog

Before you sign up for an online dating service, consider the following:

·         Read terms and conditions so you know what you're signing up to and how much it will cost.

·         Check your options for cancelling the contract.

·         Set reminders in your phone or diary to cancel your subscription to avoid inadvertently rolling over for a further term.

·         Research the business: conduct an internet search on the name of the company and verify any contact details.

·         Create a separate email address for online dating.

·         Never include personal information such as your real name, workplace, work or home address, phone number or birthday, in your profile.

·         Do a reverse Google image search on photos of profiles to check for authenticity.

·         When you meet somebody for the first time, pick a public place, tell a friend where you're going and keep the first meeting brief and inexpensive, such as grabbing a cup of coffee.

·         Don't let somebody new pick you up or drop you at your home.

·         Never send money to someone you've only ever contacted online or over the phone.
