Despite the safeguards in place to help protect those looking for a relationship online, the protection is not perfect, and users need to be educated.
While the reports of these types of scams are out there (even with copy and paste examples of the e-mails used), people still fall for the scams every day.
In this particular case, it was my profile on e Harmony that was targeted, and this is my recount of it.
It started with a potential match; a profile with a collection of tasteful photos of a beautiful woman, not too ‘out there’, but a face that stood out from the crowd.
The profile was fairly complete, with a few of the smaller-scale questions not answered.
Overall, the profile initially raised no suspicion for me.
