Scams / someone is asking for money

There are many scams on the internet. But they all eventually involve someone wanting you to pay/send money or sign up for something.

Many of them are very sophisticated. Some of the most popular ones involve blackmailing, fake car accidents, fake underage users, 'angry parents', and so on.

The most common scam going around all internet dating sites is this: You will contact or get contacted by a user. After talking for a little while and exchancing information, the user will admit they lied and they are infact 15 years old, or underage in general. After that you will get a call or a text from a fake angry 'father' telling you he is going to report you to the police unless you send him money. He might say the teen was in a car accident, or needs a health bill payed, or some other variation. Do not be alarmed, and DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM.
