In your pursuit to meet beautiful Asian girls online, what has been the biggest lesson you have learned? For many, the biggest lesson is to be more vigilant to online scams. There has been plenty of campaigns for online safety. Asian Date has even put out several articles for both members and potential members to practice safe online dating. However, there are still a good number of people who did not avoid heartbreak and getting scammed despite the tips and warnings.
Steps You Can Take To Avoid Heartbreak
Sadly, the one skill that we lack when we are faced with a person who can potentially scam us is awareness. We aren’t really aware of what the tell-tale signs are. Actually, even if we are aware of the red flags, we don’t acknowledge them because we are smitten. Also, it’s possible that we turn a blind eye because we don’t want to lose something that we feel is real.
Is It Real In The First Place?
Here’s what we need to realize. When we feel like something is off, there usually is. If you feel like your date is being real, you shouldn’t have that feeling of warning in your gut, right? So, you should definitely question, no matter how long you have been chatting, if it is real in the first place.
Undeniable Signs Of A Scam
To avoid heartbreak and getting scammed, you have to watch out for signs. Do not ignore them if you want to be safe as you date through the internet:
1. Sending Money
This is the most common online dating red flag there is. Scammers will say anything and everything to get you to send them money. There’s an emergency, I need to pay off a loan, my life is in danger.
2. Demanding Gifts
Another scheme that was popular this year was the exchange of gifts. A scammer would send you a cheap gift from the sidewalks, then he or she would demand something more (much more) expensive in return.
3. Generic Messages Found On Sites
If you feel like your date’s message or poem sounds familiar, then maybe you have already come across is somewhere. Maybe you saw it as a quote in photos, or you may have even come across it on sites that compile generic messages commonly used by scammers.
What To Do About It
You may think that you are educated enough to spot these signs. However, the sad truth is, there were plenty of people who have high educational attainments that fell prey to scammers. They did not avoid heartbreak and, on top of that, they got scammed for their hard-earned money. Some proactive steps that you can follow are:
1. Do Due Diligence
Do your research. See if your date’s name appears somewhere on the internet. You don’t have to be a private eye to validate someone’s details. Better yet, sign up to an online dating site that approves the profiles of their members through an interview.
2. Refuse To Send Money
No matter what the circumstance, never send money. Even if your chat mate says that it is a matter of life and death.
