For more information and advice on staying safe online, read our safety article.
We encourage all members to report any behaviour they deem inappropriate.
Behaviour we urge all members to report include: I’ve met someone online and say they need travel expenses to visit me, is this a scam?
Requests for money or financial assistance are not acceptable.
You should never send money to anyone you meet online; just as you would never give money to someone you recently met in a pub or cafe.
You could risk your details being used for identity theft or money laundering which is a criminal offence.
