Scams: The internet can be a great way to meet new people. But thre are a small number of people who will use websites to operage scams. These people will at times use the internet to attempt to obtain money from genuine members of dating and friendship websites. Under no circumstances should you send money to someone you do not know over the internet. Do not get involved in any kind of online lottery.

We try very hard to identify these fraudsters and delete their memberships as soon as possible. However, we rely on your help as well. If you receive messages from someone asking for money, please do not respond. Send their details to us. Send us a username and contents of the message so that we can look into it.

Please note that these people appear genuine. They will write to you for a while and gain your trust and confidence before making a request for money.

Safety: Using the Internet to meet new friends can be fun, interesting and rewarding. Use the same caution you would use offline when making new friends or joining clubs. Protect your safety and security by making full use of the anonymous messaging system until you feel it's safe to reveal your identity. Do not include personal contact details such as a phone number or email address in your profile and do not give your last name, address, real email address or phone number in initial emails you exchange with other members.
  
It's important to feel comfortable with the person you're communicating with before deciding to reveal more about yourself, talk on the phone, or meet. Take your time to get to know the person and don't feel pressured into talking on the phone or meeting.

If you receive inappropriate emails or think a member's behaviour is unusual, contact us at info@datepositive.net.

If you decide to meet, be sure to do so in a safe, public place. Do not agree to a first meeting which involves activity away from others. Meet in a public place and let a friend or family member know what you are doing and where you are going. Take your mobile phone with you and ask someone to call you during your first meeting to see that everything is going well. Let your friend or family member know when you have arrived home.  
     
Be sure to trust your gut instincts. If something doesn't feel right it probably isn't.  
     
Most importantly, enjoy using datepositive.net
