HILO, Hawaii–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
In Canada police report online dating scams are on the rise. Earlier this year the FBI in the U.S. sent out a warning about dating scams. And, a 2011 study in England found 200,000 people were victims of online dating scams.
The scammers are everywhere, and use different disguises, but they are all the same ” people pretending to be who they are not. And, because most online dating sites haven’t installed safety protocols or educated their members as to the risks, scam artists easily get onto the sites, play with people’s emotions and defraud them out of hundreds, or thousands of dollars.
It’s because of that lack of safety on dating sites that Peter and Milyn Christopher, of Hilo, Hawaii, decided in 2009 to build a safe and honest dating site, Christian Filipina , using the same online technological protocols used by banks. And, this month they completed a safety update on the site to make it 100 percent secure, the first Filipina dating site to do so.
“Users on our site browse in secure SSL mode , which protects them against eavesdropping,” said Peter Christopher, co-founder of Christian Filipina. “Our technology shuts the door on scam artists, and we are the first Filipino dating website to use these safe protocols sitewide. Our members are safe on our site.”
A full list of Christian Filipina’s online dating safety tips and testimonials can be found on their website .
