Lesbians and gays are now out of the closet in most countries, and are proud to be gay and different. Homosexuals proudly frolic in public and even display their affection to their gay lovers. Lesbians are increasingly doing the same, butch or feminine. The world is accepting these people as normal parts and contributors of society. Despite their fundamental and genetically conflicting nature (female anatomy is designed for a male and vice versa), lesbians have overcome these unnatural and confusing challenges. They are now a driving force in developed nations. Now that lesbians are out in the open, online dating sites cater to gays and lesbians. Many lesbians who are out of the closet use the service, and even more lesbians who hide their masculine instincts subscribe to online dating sites as an outlet, where they can pursue love from the privacy of their own home. Gays and lesbians are perhaps the fastest growing segment of online dating site subscribers. As a result, they are also fast becoming a target for online criminals.
Internet scammers and criminals of online fraud use social networking and online dating sites as a hunting ground. Their target? People who are trusting, honest and lonely people seeking Mr. or Ms. Perfect. Many internet criminals are learning how to take advantage of lesbians who are seeking a discreet partner, or love abroad. A criminal can provide false profiles, beautiful photos and slowly build a relationship and trust with a lesbian. The result? A hot and steamy lesbian love affair online. Everything seems perfect. Men, after all, are the bad ones. Most lesbians never see it coming, and don’t suspect that their sweet, innocent and shy lesbian lover could ever be involved in any scam or fraud. The criminals understand this mentality, and they are busy exploiting it. Lesbians are urged to use caution, and be skeptical with partners.
Dating background checks are valuable tools for consumers to lower their risk for fraud. A true dating background check (like any other real background check) is a professional investigation conducted by a trained and experienced professional private investigator. It is a comprehensive verification process that screens for fraud, identifies risk factors, and answers the question – is this person who he or she claims to be? Points covered in a dating background check investigation may include, but not limited to: criminal records, travel records, employment and education verification, passport or ID verification, fraud screening, address verification, property records and asset searches, civil and marriage records, and more. It’s a smart way to be safe.
International private investigators say there is simply no way for sites like Facebook, Match.com, eHarmony and the countless other sites to screen all their subscribers. It’s important for consumers to know that no site is immune from fraud. To lower your risk, be very careful about revealing personal information. Never send money to anyone who has not been verified. Stay skeptical and if in doubt, contact a reputable private investigation firm for help.
Best of luck,
