ChristianSingleSeniors.com, one of the leading senior dating sites, reminds adults over 55 to be aware of scammers while communicating with other senior singles. While online dating is safe overall, senior singles should be aware of the possibility of scammers while using senior dating sites, says the company.
According to a 2011 MetLife Mature Market Institute review, elderly scam victims lose at least $2.9 billion a year from fraud that includes both online and offline transactions. Many scam artists target seniors specifically, believing them to be more trusting and easier to con.
ChristianSingleSeniors.com representative Olga Wright reminds senior singles that, while scammers try to spoil the fun for all, most online daters are trust-worthy people who are indeed looking for their better half. As long as seniors avoid sending money, they’ll be fine, says Wright:
“Aware of the fact that seniors are targeted specifically, we are especially vigilant in reviewing each member's application to ensure a scammer-free environment. We also find it important to educate our members that on any website there is a possibility of being scammed, and that they should always report any suspicious activities they notice on the site.”
http://www.ChristianSingleSeniors.com maintains a manual approval process, ensuring their members are who they say they are. The dating site also takes immediate actions against scammers by terminating bad accounts.

Unlike most dating sites, dating services within the network do not allow casual dating.
