Beware Of Scammers On Disabled Dating Personals!

Aug 18, 2007
Meeting new people from all over the globe is exciting! Dating sites have opened up new vistas for those seeking to make connections. This is especially true of the sites which cater to specific groups of people as they allow their subscribers access to a wider pool of people than they would otherwise come across. One such group of sites are those that pertain to disabled dating.

Disabled dating sites are a boon for differently able people. They provide a platform for social networking and make it easier for persons with disabilities to connect with others. A mere glance at the personals posted on the message board of any disabled dating website is proof enough that the sites cater to many different kinds of people, both disabled and non-disabled.

Disabled dating personals provide interesting insights to the wide range of thoughts and experiences of others. Many introductions through the personals have had happy endings. But the flip side - there are many scams and frauds.

One frequently quoted story is the famous 419 Nigerian Scam. Online daters were lured into making friends with young women, allegedly from the United States. After the initial introductions, the contacts would become increasingly personal until unsuspecting daters would find themselves cheated out of their money. It was ultimately discovered that the scammers were actually in Nigeria and not women at all!

As a group, disabled daters are quite susceptible to frauds. Scammers posing as attractive singles join the websites with the sole purpose of exploiting the vulnerability of disabled singles. Criminals too, often use dating websites intent on finding victims, especially for sex crimes.

Thus, almost all dating websites carry warnings and tips on how to spot such unscrupulous individuals. Common warnings advise subscribers not to divulge personal details online until they are familiar with the other person and not to post personal information on public message boards and personals. They also urge members to report cases of fraud or harassment so that appropriate action can be taken.

Scammers are not the only hazard on disability dating sites. With the sheer number of sites on offer, it is difficult to decide which site is legitimate. Potential daters are readily attracted to free sites. But one could suddenly find oneself faced with an unexpected bill at the end of the month. Or find that only the registration to the site was free and every other service or access to information comes with a substantial price tag!

Low cost dating sites do not invest much time in verifying the information that is posted on the personals. Thus profile details may not be true and it is quite possible that members are in for an unpleasant surprise when they finally meet their date in person. Sites offering introductions to exotic women from Asian and Eastern European countries are well known for this.

Offering exciting adventures, they attract unsuspecting men who one day wake up to find that after spending a fortune corresponding with a supposedly exotic partner, the woman herself does not actually exist! Thus the ultimate advice for all online daters - have fun but do not forget to exercise caution.
