Con artists are increasingly creating fake online profiles and tricking people on dating sites into handing over often large sums of money.
One of the most common techniques is to build up trust with the person by messaging for weeks or even months before suddenly having an emergency - the fake person being mugged but their daughter needing urgent surgery, for example - and asking for money.
We offer a range of dating tips to help you navigate the online dating world and advice via our Date Hub blog by leading industry experts.
Our customer support team personally monitor and check all profiles and photos that are submitted.
But just as dating app users are at an all-time high, so is the number of people becoming victims of online dating fraud.
A new report by the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau has found that last year, singles were conned out of £39 million by fraudsters they’d met on dating sites and apps.
Serious fraudsters sometimes even create further fake profiles and use them to be rude to you, all to make the main fake profile seem more desirable.
And it’s not just particularly vulnerable people who fall victim either.
Since launching on Valentine's Day 1997, RSVP has grown to become the largest and most trusted singles site in Australia, with over 1,200 new members joining every day.
It's free to join, search and say 'hello' to members, as well as receiving tailored matches based on compatibility and behavioural trends.
“[It’s] not the case that stupid people fall for romance scams - they can be very clever,” Professor Monica Whitty, a cyber-psychologist, explains. Scamalytics, a company which runs anti-scammer software for a number of the major dating sites, are trying to reduce online dating fraud by creating profiles of the average male and female con artist.
