The first thing you can do is to use a secondary email and phone number for your account on the dating site. The reason is that your email will be flooded with a lot of scam emails and chances are high that you will click there and fall in their trap. You know prevention is better than cure. In the same way, you should not provide your real phone number to the person you are chatting until you become sure about her identity.

Check the profile
Before contacting any woman you should check her profile. There should be all real information and profile picture. You can use Google image search to be sure that the image she has as her profile picture is really her or she has collected it from other sources.

In addition, you should search the name on other social media so that you can find her other social media id. If you do not find any social media id with that name, it is almost sure that the id is fake and you should not continue chatting with that id.

Do not provide any financial information or money
Since the main target of the scammers is to get money from you, they will always try to get financial information from you. Also, they will ask for money saying that they are in trouble or they need some money for buying internet or they need money to come and visit you. Never ever provide any money to them.
