My most memorable correspondence came from an online man whose profile name was Tee Up4Us. I told her she was married to a pathological liar and consummate cheater and she should divorce him before he crushes her heart.
He emailed me telling me he had a successful career on Wall Street (a sweetener), he was divorced and he was in the process of moving to Middle Tennessee where I lived. And I told Tee Up4Us, “If you’re reading this you’re a lying, cheating scumbag.” If you’ve used a dating site even a little bit these fishy scenarios have happened to you: An online man emails you saying he is closing his dating site account but at the last minute he saw your profile, he was extremely attracted to you and he asks you to send him your email address so he can correspond with you.
Online dating sites have created a wily playground for scammers, romance artists and married men (and women) who secretly cheat on their spouses.
According to a MSNBC survey, 30% of the men using an online dating service are married. Well…there really is no fool proof method and sadly catching a liar online can be harder than catching the married guy hitting on you at the bar.
He didn’t have a photo posted but he would forward me recent pictures if I would send him my email address. You feel uncomfortable communicating with a strange man outside a secure website.
“You made me smile just looking at your picture and I would love to meet you,” he said. A week later I received a second message from Tee Up4Us, which read: “Hi, Jim is married. You’re right to trust instincts because the quicker an online man can garner personal information about you, the easier it is to seduce and hoodwink you.
We are both accomplished artists, so the photos of our work were very important." *— Kathlene *"After we met on Match.com, I met my now-husband for coffee at Starbucks.
We talked for hours and have never been apart since then.
