The second grave danger that online dating presents is the fact that there is minimal background checking involved when signing up for dating websites. According to a report from Phactual, 10% of online dating users are sex offenders.
Even more surprising is that approximately 25% of rapists are currently finding their victims on online dating websites.
With the increase in fake profiles and lives on social media, you are not safe giving out your contact number to a random stranger on dating sites.
Online dating is getting more and more popular every single year.
Online scammers are much less likely to pay for a service as they are people that don’t like to pay for anything.
Whereas dating online is now acceptable, the rise in the number of victims of online predators makes it important to exercise caution when using it.
This is not exclusive to online dating websites that due to the nature that it is ever growing and expanding, it makes it a perfect spot for these predators.
Lying on one’s online dating profile is extremely common.
I remember ten years ago when hardly any people were using dating sites or applications.
Now it seems like everybody and their mother is on Tinder, e Harmony or Match.com!
This makes it extremely important to check public record sex offender websites for the person you have matched with.
