(From our news partner KWQC-TV 6) “Guard your heart this Valentine’s Day” is a free webinar Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller has put together to help Quad Citians avoid being scammed while looking for love. Experts from federal agencies, the online dating industry, and a senior advocacy group will be going over the following tips:
- Never send money or gifts to someone you haven’t met in person – even if they send you money first.
- Talk to someone you trust about this new love interest. It can be easy to miss things that don’t add up. Pay attention if your friends or family are concerned.
- Take it slowly. Ask questions and look for inconsistent answers.
- Try a reverse-image search of the profile pictures. If they’re associated with another name or with details that don’t match up, it’s a scam.
Monday’s free webinar is from 2 to 3:30pm, TV6 will be live streaming the program. CLICK HERE FOR MORE
