Finding love at a discount
Finding love in this age of digital dating can cost you dear in more ways than one. An estimated 323 million people worldwide now use dating apps to find love, friendship or even just a casual fling.
Yet not only do many sites come with pricey subscription charges, online dating also carries the risk of ‘romance fraud’, where scammers use fake profiles to con other users. So it really does pay to do your research before signing up for any dating site.
Always read reviews on Trustpilot and elsewhere to check out the site’s reputation, while also being aware that disgruntled users who have been booted off for bad behaviour may be
behind some of the bad reviews. If there are any red flags, such as a high number of complaints or reports of scams, it’s best to stay away.
