Online Dating Tonight Tackles Online Dating Scams

This is the second episode of my weekly Online Dating Tonight series. If you are a regular visitor to YouTube Funny Video Clips then you know that I launched this new series last week as part of my work with Online Dating Magazine. The goal is to be informative and educational in an entertaining way – thus the animation. This second episode deals with the topic of Online Dating Scams. Did you know that tens of millions of dollars is bilked from online daters every year in scams? It’s a mega-profitable business that is growing. Essentially, the scammer puts up a fake profile then starts to build online relationships with people on online dating services. They will cultivate the online relationship and even talk to you on the phone. Once they feel they have gotten you to fall in love with them, they invent an “emergency” and ask you for money. Most people fall prey because they think they are “in love” with the person and that the person is telling them the truth.

I hope you enjoy this episode and I thank you for your feedback.
