What is a scammer
A dating scammer is a person (male or female) that is clearly not interested in marriage or relationship, but is actually interested in committing fraud, trying to get cash from you, playing on your kindness and credulity, eventually leaving your heart broken and your wallet empty.
There are plenty categories of scammers, from those who use photos saved from someone's social networks profile, to real women that sign up on their own and trying to scam you in the end. They all share a common feature - they "work" massively, with several hundred men at a time.
How to recognize a scammer
Typically, scammers hunt for lonely single men on a free or cheap dating websites, get acquainted, and then take them out of website. In most cases, they pull men to traditional
When they correspond outside of the moderated space of a serious dating platform, they are free to tell men anything without any risk of getting banned and blacklisted. This is where they ask you for money to solve some urgent problems, like a health condition.
In most cases, the identity of the female profile they operate is completely fake with photos that were stolen from social networks. Therefore, the first and most important rule is this: NEVER SEND MONEY TO ANYONE.

Documents and background checks
Before woman's profile goes online, we check if she is really who she claims to be, such as whether she is really single or if she has divorced in the past. This method filters out women without serious intentions that just want some spicy online relationships behind their husband's backs.
Two times a month, we call a woman and ask her questions about her latest correspondence. The questions consist of some random facts that she would definitely know if she wrote the letters on her own. This method screens out scammers who work with real women as bait, because scammers "work" with a lot of men and most likely won't recall any details at all.
We have software that monitors correspondence and alerts our moderators if something suspicious occurs, like very massive correspondence, contact information exchange or money soliciting.
Reports and investigation
If we receive complaint about suspicious behavior from one of our members, we don't hesitate to suspend suspicious profile and conduct a personal investigation on the issue.
If an investigation determines that a profile belongs to a scammer, the amount of credits that were spent on correspondence with that profile will be returned to you.
