Use Skype to Avoid Online Dating Scams

Before you drop one red cent on a tank of gas or airplane ticket to meet your online date(s) in person, you want to know for sure if he or she is who they claim to be.

One of the best ways to confirm that they are who they say they are is to have a web cam chat or video conversation via Skype.

Scammers will often try to lure potential victims in by posting photos of beautiful people in their profile.

If the person refuses to have a video chat with you, then it’s possible that they look nothing like their profile photo.

If on the other hand, they do accept the invitation to Skype with you, this is the perfect opportunity to check out their story in real-time.

Ask questions related to what they’ve already shared with you via their profile and other text correspondence. If they are telling you the truth, they should be able to answer your questions without difficulty and appear comfortable doing so.

If you already use Skype, I suggest that you set up a new Skype profile for online dating. Set up the new account so that it does not give away personal information such as your surname, birth date or the city in which you reside.

Guys, careful! Some girls try to connect with you and after all they are from Ghana or other African country and the profile shows like they live in the USA. Do not waste time, ask for a video conference and pay attention to any prior recorded video. Any communication should be real at any time, sometimes they put for the excuse that they don’t have webcam or microphone and pre recorded a video!! Make sure that they are real, I tell you for the experience. Also never send money !!!! there are many dating places out there…always check the identity of another person who is contacting you to know that she/he is real. I am married to a wonderful Russian girl and have a little girl, but before meeting her had to experience by my own before skype, at that time had ICQ. Good luck to you and hope you find the right person in your life.
