A Warning on Moving to Personal Email Accounts Rapidly There is one other risk with moving to personal email accounts.It happens less often and requires that you move to personal email very quickly but it’s a problem that exists. Often a scammer will steal credit card numbers, sign up for a dating service, convince men or women to move to the conversation to personal emails and then attempt to use the Romance Scam on them.
Ultimately, if you’re worried that your significant other is on a dating site, there are many options for sleuthing (ranging from a quick scan through emails and browser history to more intensive—and expensive—actions).
With that in mind, I recommend the following: she was dealing with a scammer.
I’m afraid she was ignoring/rejecting all the men who wanted to take the relationship to the next step (however small).
Taking a Chance to Find Love There are a lot of great people on dating sites but we’ll never know unless we give them a chance. Giving out your email is a risk but so is going on a first date with someone you’ve never met!
I feel that if we’re careful, most of these risks can be mitigated to the point that the risk is very small.
Fortunately, these sites aren't necessarily as anonymous as would be adulterers and cheaters would like to believe.
