Melbourne man Gerard Prescott turned to a private investigator earlier this year after losing $260,000 through an online dating scam."For the last 12 months all I've done is look for answers" he said."I got a private investigator to find the IP addresses, and I found an IP address in Nigeria and one in South Africa."Mr Prescott was tricked into sending the money after meeting who he thought was a Brisbane-based woman on a Christian dating website late last year.
Mr Prescott originally reported the fraud to the Federal Government's Australian Cybercrime Online Reporting Authority (ACORN), but said he did not get a response until six months later."I haven't been able to get the police to do anything," he said.
For people seeking same-sex relationships, the app doesn’t exactly work the way it’s intended to; either party can send the first message.
One strange thing I noticed on Bumble is that I saw a lot of friends and coworkers on the app within the first few minutes of using it.
Andrey Andreev, the cofounder of Badoo who would later help Wofe found Bumble, convinced her to think about the dating space again.
“I wanted to do something that would promote a responsible user online.
I wasn’t going to do it in the dating space at all.” Bumble works like this: you download the app, set up your profile, and start swiping.
If you mess up and accidentally swipe left when you mean to swipe right — swipe right meaning that you’re interested in someone — you can shake your phone to undo it.
