Our moderation team manually check photos and personal ads across the site and a built-in screening system helps identify suspicious accounts, remove them and prevent re-registration.
While we are confident that our measures ensure a high level of security, we urge members to maintain vigilance while dating online and report any suspicious profiles to safeguard other members.
The approach that members take to get to know you will always vary.
However, in all cases it is worth asking yourself, “Is this person looking for a relationship, and are they interested in the person I am”.
At Match we want to ensure that you have a safe, friendly experience on the site.
Remember that on Match you you are fully in control of your search and can choose to take things at your own pace.
Scammers will often pocket the money or use the bank details you have given to gain access to your online banking and pocket even more money.
Using the list of scammer behaviour to watch out for, this unfortunately, sounds like suspicious scammer behaviour.
You should never send money to someone to meet online, whatever the premise.
