Red Flags That Scream “Scammers”
Here are a list of red flags that should alert you to a potential scam or scammer.
1. Conversation starts talking about how speaking on another messenger platform is more convenient.
This is a typical strategy of online sugardating scammers looking to move the conversation outside the protection of the platform. Once outside, they can be free to use their boilerplate scam techniques.
2. Someone asks you for your phone number, or gives you their phone number to call/text.
If you give your phone number, you’ve compromised your privacy. If you use the phone number that they give you, once you call that number, they’ll have your phone number and again you have just compromised your privacy. Once they have your phone number, they are free to text or call you and use their well rehearsed online sugardating scammers strategies on you.
3. Asking for your address.
By keeping things online and keeping things private, you maintain your safety and security. If you give out your address, they could send letters, or could show up in person. A scammer could even go as far as blackmailing you! Do not give out your address to potential online sugardating scammers!
4. Asking for money.
If after several exchanges of texts, a Sugar Daddy turns around and asks you for money, then BEWARE!
While it might seem like a legit sob story, chances are, once you give them money off site, you’ve compromised your financial information. Also, since you’ll no longer have the protection of the site to keep your privacy or help control your interaction, you’ve lost the protection of the platform that you signed up on. Once you compromise your financial information, it could be a long and painful road. Law enforcement take time to work through the legal system to help victims of online fraud and identity theft. This is the biggest long con out there. Don’t be a victim of online sugardating scammers.
Be careful out there!
