Verified, Schmerified Beware of the “verified” profiles that some sites tout.
The issue of the fake online dating profile continues to escalate like a hurricane, and drown all the real singles out there in online dating land. The issue remains that the anonymity of online dating has opened the flood gates of liars, thieves, cheats, and the sex industry looking to make a quick buck any way they can.
So, how can singles wade through the muck and find true love?
It’s not as simple as some online dating services claim it is.
Singles, both men and women, are under attack from the fakes.
A Singles’ Dating Convention member sent this to me: “I’ve recently joined a different singles’ site and am running into the same issue I’ve had with the previous ones I’ve been involved in.
It seems that somehow my profile targets only those that are looking for money, or are spam. For example, the other night I got a message from a lady on Plenty Of and responded to her and then she quickly responded giving me her Yahoo screen name to IM her.Also, if the photo on the profile is suggestive in any way, (and you’re not on an alternative lifestyle or friends-with-benefits site, which by the way, are loaded with fake profiles) or looks like a modeling picture from a magazine, just be aware that there is a high probability that it’s a fake.
