Guideline Message to Use in Reporting Scammers to Dating Websites

The following generic message can be used as a guideline for reporting suspicious profiles.

Hello,

You have a scammer profile posted, which is: (INSERT MEMBER NAME & ID # HERE)

I have a great deal of experience with spotting these profiles, and this is DEFINITELY a scammer. I HAVE CONFIRMED THIS BY VISITING (INSERT THE NAME OF THE WEBSITE HERE) WEBSITE, WHERE I PERSONALLY IDENTIFIED THE STOLEN PICTURE.

I understand that you cannot look at every profile that is posted, so I am providing you and others with this free help, so that the world of online dating may eventually become “scammer-free”.

I encourage you to remove this profile and/or contact the person that posted it. I assure you they will be unable to tell you anything about where they “claim”, they are from, for they are most likely in Nigeria. And they will also be unable to effectively communicate their desire for a genuine relationship.

You will be doing your industry and the world at large a tremendous service to deal with this quickly and decisively.

Thank You,

(Your Name)

Make sure that you are sure the profile is actually suspicious. If you have had direct contact with the profile person, then take screenshots, or save the conversations so you have proof. If you have found the person’s image on other websites online via reverse image search, ensure you save the link to the website, what date and time you visited the site, which browser was used, and any other details. All of this information will help the dating sites validate your request and ban the profile.
