#datingscams | When love becomes a nightmare: Online dating scams you should be aware of

The embrace of online dating services, such as dating apps or virtual places to meet people, is a phenomenon that has occurred worldwide. 

Currently, more than 40 percent of single men used a dating app or a dating site in the last month, says GlobalWebIndex. 

There are dozens of dating apps available; some operate globally, while others only work in some countries that have greater acceptance of them.

Although these apps and sites have the potential to bring great happiness into the lives of their customers, there is a darker side as well: scammers abuse these services to their own nefarious ends, leading to heartbreak both emotionally and financially for the scammers’ victims, says Carey van Vlaanderen, CEO of ESET South Africa.
