After talking to the fantastic producers and collecting stats (never easy in the world of online dating), it was fun to get in front of the camera and tell some stories and anecdotes about the business of online dating.
I’ll post the date the segment airs as soon as the show page is up at CNBC.
Its funny how my big interviews always happen towards the end of December every year like clockwork.
We met following a weekend that Beth was away with a group of couples and had had enough with 'the single life' and decided she would go on a date with 'the next half decent guy' that sent her a message on RSVP.
Millions of Americans use dating sites, social networking sites, and chat rooms to meet people. But scammers also use these sites to meet potential victims.
They create fake profiles to build online relationships, and eventually convince people to send money in the name of love.
Some even make wedding plans before disappearing with the money.
An online love interest who asks for money is almost certainly a scam artist.
Don’t send money to tide someone over after a mugging or robbery, and don’t do anyone a favor by making an online purchase or forwarding a package to another country.
One request leads to another, and delays and disappointments will follow.
In the end, the money will be gone along with the person you thought you knew.
