How to recognise a dating scam
This should be fairly easy: if what's on offer seems too good to be true, it probably is.
The problem is that once their libido is stirred, many people lose all sense of reason and become willing participants in cons which are purely about wealth changing hands - from yours to theirs.
The best way to avoid getting into these situations is to ask yourself (and your friends) some searching questions:
1. Is this person really interested in me?
2. Are they really the person they seem to be?
3. Are they much younger/more attractive than me?
4. Are they unusually interested in my assets - that's the financial and property ones?
The opinions of your friends and family are crucial in framing your responses, since they will be unaffected by the hormones whizzing around your body that will cloud your judgement.
