People should also be aware that there seems to be great benefit to scammers in simply getting someone’s phone number or email address; that can be a jumping-off point for all-out identity theft, so even if a person doesn’t ask for money, be sure you trust them before giving out any contact or other identifying information. (You’ll notice many scammers – like “Mistress L” – ask for that information right off the bat. That’s another tell-tale sign of a scammer right there.)
And that, like so much of this scammy nonsense, can and does happen on all kinds of websites, not just those dealing with sex or relationships.
