How To Know If You Are Being Scammed Online Dating

Have you done so much as a quick search about the person you are talking to? If someone approaches you on social media, look at the individual’s account. See how long the account has been active. If it is less than 6 months old, most likely it is a fake account . The person could very well be a scammer. If you want to know if you are being scammed online, read below!

  • Look at how many posts the person has. If they have only a few posts (less than 10) most likely the person is fake and is a scammer.
  • See how many followers they have. If they have 0 followers or the ratio of followers to people they follow is very low, most likely the person is a scammer.
  • Patsy Roach actually keeps photo albums of the creeps that try to outsmart her. She often shares the images with her viewers when she does “lives” on TikTok.
