There's no doubt that "date scamming" is very newsworthy. Just keep an eye on the media coverage around the world.

If dating sites get out in front of this issue and make sure that their members know they are making a real commitment to fighting the problem, the benefits derived will be tremendous. Plus, it's just the right thing to do.

I agree, the idea that you can hide behind a website profile and try to manipulate the other party is something that will continue to attract those thieves. But heed the warnings, most sites in the dating game tell you never to send money.

Communicate on the site for a long while too, instead of swapping personal information.

I agree with you guys that many people are afraid of sharing their personal information on many dating sites because of the many scandals that are involved. To correct this impression by the dating site's owners will take a long time. The dating scams on the internet are just too many!
