Please be aware that the Meetup groups have had reports of scammers using contacts and sending messages to potential victims. Look for the following clues and report any suspicions to that group.
*They will send messages and will profess strong feelings in a short period of time, this escalates quickly.
*They will ask to chat privately, taking you away from site. Many times they ask for you to go to various apps as HangOut, What’s App, Viper to name a few. They will try to bully you into using these apps. When you refuse, their messages get angry or desperate. Most times they will never speak to you and make excuses why they cannot talk - communication is done by text or messages only.
*Poor use of English language or poorly written messages.
*Asking for pictures to share - never send compromising photos as they have been known to blackmail.
*Many times person is overseas working - many say they are private contractors and may send a picture of contract. Do not be fooled by this ploy.
*Elaborate stories asking for money, gifts, bank accounts, ITunes cards,etc. Never give money or information to someone you have never met!
*Never offer to transfer money for them or someone else - money laundering is a criminal offense.
Please let us know if there are any other clues you feel should be made aware of and be watchful of communication with someone you have not met. This group has been created for fun and meeting new people, we don’t want to see anyone harmed by scammers.
