There are many different ways in which people can find love. Some couples have known each other since they were young; others were introduced through friends of friends. People also meet their perfect match at university or at some stage during their career. However, more and more couples are now meeting through dating websites or by attending events specifically designed for single citizens. Despite the overwhelming success stories that can be heard from such methods, it is important not to become a victim of African dating scams.
In the last year there have been a number of people that have reported various different African dating scams. The figure in reality is probably a lot higher than that reported, as people tend to feel embarrassed or reluctant to report such instances. Here is some advice that may help you, should you choose to attend events or use websites in order to find yourself a companion.
Firstly, when you are looking to attend an event always ensure that the company advertising are well known and have a good reputation. Do your research. For example, SpeedDater is a UK leader in organising singles events and has been established since 2002. They are well known, have a good reputation and over 11 years experience of organising such occasions. Therefore, it is unlikely that you will fall victim to dating scams if you choose to use such companies. On the other hand, if you come across a company that you haven’t heard of before all you need to do is search for some reviews. See what other users are saying. Although it’s unlikely that every single customer will report having a 100% positive experience, the satisfaction rate should still be high.
When deciding which singles event you would like to attend be sure to check the location. Make sure you are familiar with the area and more importantly make sure the venue actually exists! There have been known incidences where people have brought tickets for lavish single events only to find out that the venue doesn’t even exist. Check out the address before you decide to buy a ticket or attend. This will reduce the chances of you being tricked by African dating scams.
Lastly, if you decide to register for a membership online, always check the terms and conditions of payment. Make sure the price is reasonable and check that you are able to cancel the membership at any time without a fee. If you follow the simple advice outlined in this article, you are less likely to find yourself being scammed and more likely to be on the right path to finding your perfect future partner.
