There are many Spammers who masquerade as real people. So it's always good to play it safe
- When getting to know one another in the early stages, it's better to use the Old Style Dating messaging instead of something like WhatsApp or any other external messaging system. Spammers prefer to draw people to their own channel of communication.
- If you intend to use WhatsApp to communicate, it might help to google the mobile number being sent to you.
- If you intend to communicate via email, again google the email id.
- Don’t give out any personal information immediately.
- Don’t agree to meet up straight away, but also be suspicious if they never want to meet up.
