People are often ashamed to come forward and admit that they’ve been duped.

It’s not a good feeling to have been taken advantage of, and a scheme that’s so obvious in hindsight is even harder to admit to. If you date online, take precautions to protect yourself.

Police were monitoring an online chat room for child predators earlier this month when they reportedly caught and arrested a 36-year-old man accused of soliciting sex with children earlier this month. 13, an officer posing as a single mother with an 8-year-old child began talking with Enrique Roberto Velez, 36, in the chat room, according to KPRC.

Velez discussed how he was babysitting his girlfriend's 5-year-old son and a 1-year-old baby.

Dating app Hinge, which connects singles through their extensive Facebook networks, has conducted a massive survey to find out what sort of initial messages actually inspire replies - and the ones that fail miserably.

The results provide an eye-opening look into what dating is like around the country - and the differences between men and women - so that singles can improve their odds of connecting with the right person.

In August, a British man was sent to jail after defrauding two women of over £300,000 (5,300) through online dating sites.

He had convinced them that he was a diplomat and that a US marine general had fallen in love with them, causing one woman to pawn jewelry, empty her life savings, sell her car, and take out loans to help this general move to the UK. In 2011, the Internet Crime Complaint Center estimated that the online dating scamming “industry” was worth over million, but it’s likely much higher than that, due to the difficulty of making a good estimate.

Velez allegedly told the police officer to meet him at a motel where they would have sex with the children.
