  • 1. Avoiding Scams in search of loveThe Internet can be a place where you find true love. But if you create a profile ona dating site, it is very important for you to keep your eyes open. You risk beingtied to a subscription that you may find it hard to get out of again.Read the Sites Terms of UseIt is important that you read the dating sites terms carefully before you create asubscription.Examine among other things, how long you lock yourself into that particulardating service. You should be certain to Double Check for a cancellation clause.Some of the places you can find the cancellation clause may be varied anddifficult to see.It could be buried in the "Terms of Use" page; it could be hidden under thepurchase button in a very light shade of grey or even in the confirmation e-Mailyou receive. However you should find that the vast majority of legitimate on linedating sites will make this information very easy to find.Warning:If you cannot find clear and adequate information on the time period, the priceand the cancellation notice period, be careful not to join the site.Check others experiences with the siteIts also a good idea to check online whether other users have good or badexperiences with the site.Consumer advocates, various State and country agencies, including State andCountry Attorney Generals, have received complaints from consumers who havereported that after creating a free profile, on a dating site, they must upgrade to apaid membership to read messages from other users. In many cases these

And when they did they were lockedinto a long term membership.Once this was done, they found it extremely difficult to get out of the subscriptionwhen trying to cancel and get their money back. There have also been examplesof the profile suddenly appearing on multiple sites because the owner of the sitefor marketing purposes has several sites with different names.Cancellation and RefundsDepending on the dating site, you basically have from 14 to 30 days to cancel,when you subscribe on the web or your mobile phone. In other words you cancancel the service anytime during the time period. However, as stated above youmay find yourself being charged for a full month, if you read the sites messagesto you. So be careful!Read the entire "terms of use" and know what it is going on.Create a free profile on a dating site, you may find that you need to upgrade to apaid membership to read messages from other users, and it also means that youwaive the opportunity to withdraw from the contract. Always read the termscarefully before you upgrade your membership.Rights to images:Please also note that if you give the rights to the images/pictures you upload toyour profile, you may run the risk of giving, that dating site, to use the images intheir marketing.Avoiding scams in search of love isnt difficult. You just need to make sure youread the terms of use and know what you are signing up for and the permissionsyou are giving to the dating site.
