We have provided internet dating tips below, however, please also keep in mind that for any relationship to develop there has to be a little give and take from each party involved in order to take the next step and arrange a phone conversation or meeting
Spice of Life has taken every precaution available in preventing scammers, con artists (Nigerian scammers) from entering our site, however it is not impossible for these "bad apples" to enter a profile, therefore to ensure that you are not vulnerable to such a scam please read the following warning signs below:
Signs of a scammer member - Please always use your common sense and gut instinct
The scammer might start off by building a rapport with you (no matter where in the world they are, Russia, Nigeria, Africa are the most common however any country is possible)
They tell you that they love or desire you after your first contact or only after a few emails.
They will always push to correspond with you privately
They then tell you a sob story of how they are terribly poor due to a death in the family
Or how they have a very sick family member and are in the depths of despair
Or they will tell you they are in the process of moving to your country very soon
Or how they would love to create a new life in another country but do not have the airfare or travel documents
Or they will tell you about a large amount of money they need to transfer out of their country, or that they want to share with you.
All of the above are variations of the Nigerian 419 scam. Genuine members will NEVER EVER ask you for money
Again please use your common sense, gut instinct and initiative, should you be contacted by a member that shows any pattern of the scammer signs above please click here and inform us immediately of their ID number and/or email address and a copy of the email they have sent you and we shall delete the person and ban them from re-entering our website.
