The internet dating market

Online dating sites and arablounge app are becoming more and more popular. However, the number of scams is also increasing. We tell you which are the most common and what you can do to avoid falling into them.

The internet dating market is a huge business and it is continually expanding. But deceptions are also increasingly common.

In the UK alone, a complaint is received every 3 hours and the National Fraud Intelligence Office estimates that in 2016 more than 3,800 people lost an average of US $ 12,500 due to so-called “romantic fraud”.

But the phenomenon is global. The FBI says Americans lost an estimated $ 82 million to online dating scams in the last six months of 2014 alone (the last year they released figures).

Next, we explain which are the most common scams and what you should do to avoid falling for them.

There are strategies for creating a profile on online dating apps with a high probability of being successful. According to Sean Rad, the co-founder of the Tinder app, these are the keys to the perfect photo:

Scammers know it. And they analyze it to create bots, computer programs that mimic human behavior, as happened to this Twitter user:

Once they manage to deceive their victim, they invite them to access a fraudulent link. Normally, it is usually a “premium” service that invites you to pay or give your bank details.

At other times, they send the link to a fake site to verify the account or spam messages and calls.

The “catfishers” are people who lie about their identity on the network to establish a romantic relationship with another person.

This romantic fraud consists of creating an emotional bond and then demanding money based on an invented reality. They tend to lie about their age, place of residence and even their gender. Anything goes.

“You still hope that you are wrong and that this person is authentic,” a 47-year-old woman who was a victim of this type of fraud told the BBC.

Of course, the photos are also fake, as well as the phone numbers and other contact details.

In most cases of “sextortion” or sexual blackmail, the scammers take the conversation to a platform outside of the one they are using.

It is common to invite a conversation first through WhatsApp and then via Skype.

The objective is to manipulate and have sexual encounters in front of the cameras to be able to record everything and then ask for money in return.
