the basics

Here are the obvious scam signs

  • Poorly written, many grammar mistakes
  • Non sequiturs like Virgin Mom, Lonely Mom Has no Kids.  Use your imagination here,  some of these are quite graphic, and do not need to be explained.
  • Weight and height are out of line like 5′ 6″ weighs 90 pounds or doesn’t match the photo
  • Professional looking model type photograph.  Look at the lighting to start.  This is not referring to a studio photo, like class pictures or what some people might have done for the business profile.

As always, remember to keep your anti-virus software up to date on your computer and your smartphone.  I don’t know about you, but often the page I am viewing on my phone jumps around, and I have clicked on something by accident more than once.  One click is all it takes sometimes.
