The use of fake profiles in online dating platforms is a norm nowadays. To avoid hooking up with the next ‘Tinder Swindler,’ I have prepared some key warnings signs to observe in online dating apps. They include;
Sketchy Profiles That Look to Good to Be Realistic
If you notice a profile with catfishing and power words such as Architecture, or Catholic widow and Son of someone prominent, take a deep dive into that person’s background information to avoid being scammed. Profiles detailed with unrealistic information about ones’ occupation is the first red flag of a dating scammer.
Lack of Social Media Links
Check whether your date has a recently updated social media profile and the number of friends too. Please keep away from people with new social accounts that lack friends, frequent recent activities, and no friends, as frauds mostly use these pages to make their profiles appear real.
Limited Shared Pictures
A profile with few photos does not mean one is a scammer, but it’s one-way scammers use to hide their true identity. Please do a thorough investigation on whether those pictures are truly theirs. A video call or google image search can reveal one’s true identity if you doubt their photos.
• Robotic, chatbot, or auto replied conversations.
• Flirty chats filled with straightforward messages on knowing about your occupation or asking for money.
• They majorly have professional photos and deny your request to meet up or share their current images.
