Another company that ties into a larger database (Successful Match), Asian Women Date (formerly Asian Chats) has a few unique features that few other Asian dating sites offer, such as greeting cards, news relevant to Asians, and several verification options to allow users to prove their income, age, education, and occupation.What really makes this site stand out is the focus on interracial, heterosexual relationships only: Asian women and non-Asian men.
For weeks, even months, you may chat back and forth with one another, forming a connection. But ultimately, it’s going to happen—your new-found “friend” is going to ask you for money.
So you send money..rest assured the requests won’t stop there.
Millions of Americans visit online dating websites every year hoping to find a companion or even a soulmate.
But as Valentine’s Day gets closer, the FBI wants to warn you that criminals use these sites, too, looking to turn the lonely and vulnerable into fast money through a variety of scams..
The pictures you were sent were most likely phony lifted from other websites.
The profiles were fake as well, carefully crafted to match your interests.
Victims were later sent a link to a website where those conversations were posted, along with photos, their phone numbers, and claims that they were “cheaters.” In order to have that information removed, victims were told they could make a payment—but there is no indication that the other side of the bargain was upheld.
While the FBI and other federal partners work some of these cases—in particular those with a large number of victims or large dollar losses and/or those involving organized criminal groups—many are investigated by local and state authorities.
For those of Asian descent looking for a date, love, or hookup online, these sites promise their users a large number of singles to choose from.
