One of the biggest SCAMs on the internet is the promise of online love, only to be met by real world cons and hurt. In the security field, I warn about this stuff ALL the time, but it falls upon deaf ears as those listening only care when they have been taken advantage of. When one enters the online world, the rules are much different than the ‘outside’ world.
An online entity learns that they have the ability to escape accountability and responsibility for their choices and actions; this often leads to a new experience of ‘freedom’ which translates, to some, as a type of power. Even one with the most noble of intents is tested by the allure of this new drug… and, from this, many of them succumb only to wear the mask of someone they ‘wish’ to be as opposed to someone they are. Embedded truth can be found within each choice that one makes.
Over 90 percent of all users NEVER read the Privacy Policies.
The Pimp sites charge per month, serving scammers, liars, and thieves for access to an organized buffet table of victims that fit a tailored demographic. The average male has sex with 5 to 9 women he meets online through a website in a year. A (non-prostitute) woman averages 3 to 7 sexual encounters online, excluding those that have become a victim of a heinous act, before she finds a relationship of any substantial time. From these flat statistics it is understood why predators are choosing the online space to find its victims as compared to the ‘old’ methods in the ‘outside world’.
