After reading all these stories on the internet about online insecurity and all the swindling that sometimes comes with it, you can sometimes feel vulnerable. But as much as the online dating sites like Afroromance do a lot to enhance member safety and security; I cant just go online with my blindfolds on. HELL to the NO!!! See, the perception that “my site has security measures in place” or “every profile goes through rigorous screening so I am safe” is what makes some people fall victim to online cons. And the best advice I can give other members is: Dont let anyone else be responsible for your online safety and security; these two are your responsibility.
See, I have come to notice how easy it always is for me to trust people online. And I happen to have formed the wrong perception about some of the other members in my search for love. So knowing too well that online romance tricks are on the rise, I cannot afford to have blindfolds on even for one second. I know my search for love makes me vulnerable but I just cant afford to be careless and surrender my entire online dating safety to Afroromance dating site or any other site for that matter.
Whenever I start communicating with someone online, I think before I do anything. I never divulge or disclose my personal information to anyone immediately, nor do I meet them in person that soon. And whenever I come into contact with anyone who gets abusive or threatens me to give them my personal info, I report them on the Afroromance dating site for their administrators to investigate.
My motto has been never to send money to anyone, no matter how genuine their problems sound, because I know too well that such individuals are but opportunists who have discovered an easier way to make a quick buck. Me, I block any member that asks me for any financial favors. I am here to find love not to get ripped off in the process.
Its very simple: Afroromance dating site is a platform for helping people find love. So anything I come across that doesnt entail making friends or finding love and romance, I do not entertain. I take control of my own online safety and ask questions later. It doesnt matter how genuine the problem the other member has seems. There is no way of you verifying their story. So why risk it? Better stay safe!
