How to defend from online scams

What's scam, and how do online cheats work?

Scam is a word that means a cheat attempt.
In dating sites the most common cheats are sentimental: some users, usually women, that come from East Europe, Russia, Africa (Ghana, Nigeria, Côte d'Ivoire), send an interested message to the victim. In this way it begins a long distance relationship via email, through a deep correspondence. Usually, the woman has an attractive profile with a charming photo and she immediately shows her interest in building a love relationship. She is always available in dialogue, she usually sends low-resolution photos, sometimes they are clearly downloaded from the web, so recognizable as false. After a short time it is required an amount of money to solve economic matters, such as a sudden illness, an expiring loan, a flight ticket to reach you, ecc. In this way the victim is convinced of transfering an amount of money though a bank account or, largerly, through a cash transfer such as Western Union. After having received the money, the woman put off the scent.

How can I defend me from scams on dating sites?

On dating sites the most common cheats are sentimental. To prevent these kind of cheats, it's useful to consider some common and suspicious features:
- quick interest of the user for you, even with a marriage possibility
- sent photos have often a low-resolution (as if they are specifically prepared) and sometimes they are clearly downloaded from the web
- the user speak with you in a ill-formed english
- women are often young and charming
- money request, for an amount that is not so high

What can I do if I suspect a scam/cheat?AC

- DO NOT send money amount to any user who requires it
- Warn IMMEDIATELY to the staff of Lovepedia.net the suspected user, clicking on the warning link of his profile
