The way you get stuck
With every click, you are actually providing more and more details about yourself to the other side, without even being aware if it is a company asking for it, or it a fraudster; after all, it’s all “online”. They procure their information and use them against you.
Not only that, when you log onto an “online dating site” you are asked to fill up a preliminary form and you are also asked to provide certain details without you which many of the options will not be available to you.
Here comes the trap, when you may be asked to submit a certain amount of money or something equally valuable. You do so and you are trapped.
