Colorado Springs, CO, United States, 2006/12/25 - Online dating, routinely used by millions of singles, although very popular and successful has its share of dangers. Fraudulent profiles and photographs are increasingly being used as a venue for crimes perpetuated in the name of love.
Online Dating Safety...Who Are They Really?
Imagine This: Awakened by morning sunlight streaming through your window—your first thought today was a single, stunning realization. No, it wasn’t a nightmare. The man in bed next to you is not the man you married. He is a total stranger with an alias and fabricated persona.
Deborah Nelson of Colorado Springs, CO, knows first-hand the horrors of this terrifying scenario and is helping others to prevent it from happening to them. In her true story, Ooops, I married a Con Artist, Nelson illustrates that now, more than ever, singles need to know the identity of the people they are dating. And Nelson has developed a proactive, non-invasive way to do just this.
Nelson, with partner Private Investigator Linda Schneeloch, just introduced the Web’s most comprehensive identity verification service for online daters called “The Dating Passport.” Through its website, the company provides a failsafe security system to protect online daters from the dangers of fraudulent dating profiles.
An international conference held in Toronto last October concluded that an Internet identification system is critical to stemming online fraud. The Dating Passport offers the solution for millions of people now dating online. The service provides an inexpensive, non-invasive alternative to the traditional background check.
For an annual fee of about the cost of a dinner for two, The Dating Passport certifies members identifications through their secure online application. When The Dating Passport members want to verify each others identities, they simply agree to exchange Dating Passport ID Numbers. The annual fee covers an unlimited number of ID verifications. The Dating Passport also offers a photo verification option to guard against being duped by fraudulent profile photos.
“If you are involved with a Dating Passport Member, you know who they are,” said Nelson. “In this world of online anonymity, The Dating Passport for is a must for safe dating, and a necessary precaution to prevent the potential devastation of romance fraud.”
The Dating Passport (thedatingpassport.com) is issued from the Website, A copy of Nelson's story, Ooops, I Married a Con Artist, can also be obtained on the site.
