Online Dating Scam

The Internet Crime Complaint Center receives numerous complaints about an Online Dating Scam.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation are warning people of yet another online scam.

At some point during August the center issued warnings about a PC virus that could actually put a home computer out of commission until such times as the injured party made a payment via the Internet. This sophisticated `ransomware` could have enabled the scammers to collect financial and personal information.

Now the Internet Crime Complaint Center have been investigating an online scam that lures people into taking part in confidential online conversation. During these online sessions people exchanged messages, personal information and explicit photographs. After exchanging this information they were then sent a text message stating that their details had been posted on the Internet.

The photographs, conversation transcripts and telephone numbers were then posted onto a website. The victims were sent a link that took them directly to the site where they had the opportunity to buy their information back. Buying back their conversation would cost them $9 whereas buying back all of their personal details could cost them as much as $99.

The warning fails to state just how many unsuspecting people have been duped by the latest dating scam. It is not yet clear whether the personal info is still on line or not.

Many people who create an online dating scam claim to reside in the USA or at least state that they work abroad, in reality the scammers often reside overseas.

People who scam are clever and they target females that are disabled, divorced, over forty or widowed. The women are usually lured by the well constructed profiles that appear on the site.

Go to the FBI Web site and see how you could learn to recognize an online dating scam.

Sweetest Day 2012 is a great opportunity to show the people in your life how much you appreciate them. In the everyday hustle and bustle, sometimes it is hard to show the people we share our lives with how important they are.

If you are not familiar with this holiday, it is celebrated on the third Saturday in October. It is celebrated mainly in the Great Lakes region, along with areas in the Northeast United States. The city of Cleveland was the first ever to enjoy this special day. It was pronounced a holiday on October 8, 1921.

This celebration of love was originally planned and developed by a committee of 12 confectioners which was chaired by the candymaker C. C. Hartzell. Then the day was perpetuated by Frederick Sanders of Detroit, MI along with the Sanders Candy Company.

The original committee of 12 known as “The Sweetest Day in the Year Committee” distributed a grand total of over 20,000 boxes of candy on the first annual Sweetest Day. They gave these boxes of candy to; orphans, the poor, old folks and newsboys in Cleveland. This boosted the day’s popularity in Detroit greatly.

Any opportunity to let your special people know you appreciate them is a good thing. You should take the chance that Sweetest Day 2012 gives you and spread some cheer to those around you that make your life better in all the ways that count.

Find That Special Person On Today’s Free Online Dating Sites

Love With You - Learn The Secrets

Online Dating

Today, people are busier than ever before and it is not always easy meeting that special person. While you can hope to find someone at work, school, church or even through friends, this is not always the best way to find someone who is compatible with you. After all, you know what you are looking for and finding the right person typically requires more than just matchmaking friends. However, when you use an online dating site, you can take advantage of the fact that you can browse profiles of individuals who meet your specific criteria.

While dating might seem like big business when you consider the number of free online dating sites, the truth is, finding someone who you would like to date and spend time with can be a big investment; at least in terms of your happiness and time invested in a relationship. Free online dating websites such as DateHookUp, OKCupid, PlentyofFish, and more, all offer an exciting opportunity to find the man or woman of your dreams.

One of the benefits of using an online dating service is that you can be specific about what you are looking for in a significant other. If smoking is a deal breaker for you, there is no need to waste your time meeting individuals who like to smoke. Of course, it is important to not narrow the field too much, but there are certain behaviors that are not going to sit well with everyone. For example, faith can be a big factor for many people, finding someone of the same faith will be much easier when you use an online dating site.

Once you have found the person of your dreams, you might want to consider taking a lovely vacation or spending a few days relaxing together. Groupon log cabin discounts can be an excellent opportunity to enjoy some time relaxing together without the constant commotion of day-to-day responsibilities.

Why Dating in the 70’s Was so Different

Free Registration - CatholicMingle.com

My grandpa is a tease and likes to tease me about dating. He will bring it up once every time I see him. While I was talking to him recently, I complained about a date I had who didn’t call me. My grandpa told me that I would have had a hard time with dating him, and explained that those days were different. “Your grandmother had to wait months between dates at times,” he said. I can’t picture having the patience for this. I know that not everyone was that way 40 years ago, but it seems like it did take longer to get what you are looking for back then.

Dating in the 79s

Medical school or dating

Today people have pretty busy lives, but technology has cut down the amount of time it takes to do a lot of things. In order to live and get by, people can work during the daytime, and have the evening off to relax and spend time on whatever they want to. Technology allows for more time to be spent recreationally. This means we have more time to play.

It was crazy to me to learn that my grandparents went months without seeing each other. I wondered what could be wrong with my grandfather. When I made a confused expression, he told me college was a busy time for him. His priorities were set and didn’t allow for a lot of dating. “I had to worry about getting accepted into medical school, so I didn’t have the time to go out dating every weekend,” Don said.

He said it wasn’t strange for Barbra (my grandma) to only talk to him when they were on their one date per month. He told me that up to the wedding day, they didn’t even see each other every week. Today this would be unheard of in any case besides long distance. In this day and age, young people who are dating will spend almost every day together even after just beginning the dating process.

Cancer

A couple of years ago, my grandpa was diagnosed with cancer and although he decided he would never go through chemotheripy, things changed when he felt that he had more precious years left to live.

Now he is retired

I think that my grandparents are a great match, but I am learning that she was the more social one. “Barbra was going with more other guys than I was with other girls,” Don said. Once they began dating seriously she had to give up her social ways.  “Sometimes she was going dancing but I would have to study, so we could not go or had to go with her friends.”

Traveling

It turns out it was worth the time it took Don to finish school, because now he and Barbra travel all over the world. They have recently gone to Paris, Italy, Peru, and many other places. They have built their own house, which was designed by Barbra.

It’s probably not fun to have a busy life right after marriage, but I am guessing it is worth it. I am learning that many people have to wait for their spouse to finish school, and a lot of the time they will choose homework over fun. However this is worth it in the end.

Making a Date With Delivery

Since many couples struggle with financial issues, expensive nights on the town can become an extravagant expense very quickly. Going out can also be stressful for both partners, as lines, waits, and busy crowds are an inevitable part of any dining or party scene. When looking for a date idea that is both affordable and personal, ordering sushi or another favorite from a delivery service and watching a movie can make for a better date than an expensive evening out. Enjoying a date night alone at home can make a date feel more intimate and personal, allowing you to focus solely on spending time with your date.

Choose The Perfect Meal

Although there are plenty of delivery options that are delicious, many of these options are a bit tired and boring. If you already eat pizza or Chinese food on a regular basis, you probably won’t be excited about ordering it for your date, even if it does arrive piping hot and perfectly prepared. Instead, brain storm with your date about unique and exciting dinner ideas, or conjure up a unique idea on your own to make your date more exciting and romantic.

One great date food is sushi, and you can easily have it delivered straight to your front door. Eating sushi with chopsticks always feels luxurious and cultured, even if you are eating off of paper plates while sitting on your worn-out sofa. Although many people think that sushi is expensive, there are typically some very affordable options at most sushi restaurants. Since you probably don’t eat sushi every day, you will instantly feel the difference between your date night and regular nights at home, and your date will probably love the ethnic feel. Do away with the tacky take-out containers and break out your nicest dishes to make the night even more special.

Don’t Forget About Dessert

For an added treat, you should consider purchasing a delicious and decadent dessert to enjoy after your meal. Inquire about desserts that are available at your delivery service of choice, or consider ordering something from a local bakery. Make the dessert a surprise to add an extra flair to your special evening.

By choosing the perfect meal for your date and enjoying it at home with that special someone, you will have the opportunity to really talk and enjoy one another’s company. You may find that conversation is the only entertainment that you need, or you can watch a movie. Once you set the stage with a romantic meal, the rest of the evening will fall into place.
