On mobile dating apps, don’t match with profiles that seem suspicious.
Furthermore, never send intimate images of yourself to an online acquaintance—scammers are now using these types of pictures for blackmail and extortion schemes.

One of the newer online dating scams doesn’t request money from victims, but turns them into “money mules”.

In my profile, all I have is my picture -- that's it, no information, nothing.Lately, I've been getting contact requests from women I don't know.It's hard for me to imagine any woman randomly requesting a skype contact from a guy, much less a good looking woman. The last time I hit on a woman it was 1992, and I was in high school. But after about 5 minutes she started asking me if I had ever hooked up this way before. I'm married and have no interest in skyping with strangers, but that got me thinking -- is this how people meet these days? I used to get them on my AOL acct until I turned on the blocking feature of unknown identities. You can operate a virus though things like that easily. (I married my high school sweetheart.) I'm curious if this is normal now or what? These "random" contacts are trying to get you to engage in some sort of video sex deal. I had someone from another country start chatting with me on Skype.
