I’ve just watch a video of a Canadian guy who flew to Philippines to see his girlfriend whom he met online and happens to be a victim of Typhoon Haiyan – considered as one of the strongest typhoon ever recorded in history. It was there first meeting and she was in a hospital with lots of bruises and her face was messed up. In spite all that, he accepted her, took care of her, paid all her hospital bills, and promised to take her to Canada along with her child. I thought that was so sweet! Now a days, it would be hard to find a guy like that online especially if his from other country. I met my husband online too, but I was cautious and did a lot of searching if he is mentally and emotionally able to take care of me for the rest of my life, especially that I have a little one I need to be extra careful. I did a little bit of background check and meet him in person first before I commit to anything. You know, there’s a lot of crazy people in this world we live in, we need to be sure on who we are talking with by doing background check or maybe hire a Private Detective just to be 100% sure.
Online dating is very popular this days, some get lucky to fine true love just like that Canadian guy, and some are unlucky and find themselves in a bad situation. There’s even one story that I’ve read online that a man from Virginia who used the image of a woman he met at a bar in order to solicit money from overseas victims in France, the UK, and even Ireland. He usually targeted man that are in there 50’s who are stable enough, and warm-hearted to pay for his fake surgery. You don’t want this to happen to you right? So it is really important to know who you are talking to and do not send money no matter what. You have to meet in person first before you commit anything. Also do a background check like I did so you wont get fooled. So many scammers out there, and they are getting desperate everyday to get your bank account.
If you are one of those who are talking to somebody online better hire a Private Investigator to be sure that you are not getting rip.
