Online dating professionals only
Dating services run mail and chat so you can get to know people in a safer and [monitored/controlled] way. Use their platform and the added security it gives.
If and when you do decide to share an e-mail address think about creating a separate and anonymous email address.
And a person can become a problem without having a record.
Therefore, don't get a false sense of security because you're on a dating site; do your own research to learn more about someone and make informed decisions before you decide to meet.
It is impossible to get back information once you have given it away.
- Stop communicating with anyone who attempts to pressure you into providing your personal or financial information or who seems to be trying to trick you into providing it.
If this happens contact the dating provider immediately to not only protect yourself but other users too.
There is no reason for anyone to ask you for money or your financial information, whatever sad or sob story they give.
Always keep your bank and account information private.
