Whether you’re single, looking for love or just want to meet local people, online dating has already changed everything.
That's the final step, as the scammers leave with thousands of dollars, and the storyline has finished.
It’s time to change the way we do dating in the UK.
Step two in the dating scam guide deals with "developing a virtual relationship." Scammers are told to ask lots of questions about their targets, paying particular attention to their past relationships.
They are then instructed to take the information learned, and then create the "perfect woman" for the target.
Vendors also list guides on how to commit other illegal activities.
The documents are often sold for small amounts of money, but the price barrier, the need to pay with Bitcoin, and the fact that they're only available on the deep web prevents the guides from being circulated widely.
Dating sites are, thankfully, getting better at spotting who is using their service to send thousands of spam messages.
It's pretty easy to tell: They send the same message over and over, often with the same link.
For singles in the UK, our Internet dating site has opened up a new world of possibilities.
