Take Your Time - Sometimes when you're excited about someone, your instincts can be confused by strong feelings.
However, there are exceptions, and you need to be aware of how to keep yourself - and your bank account and savings - protected while meeting people online.
There is no reason for anyone to ask you for money or your financial information, whatever sad or sob story they give.
Always keep your bank and account information private.
- Stop communicating with anyone who attempts to pressure you into providing your personal or financial information or who seems to be trying to trick you into providing it.
If this happens contact the dating provider immediately to not only protect yourself but other users too.
