Regardless if you are new to the internet dating world or a veteran, you should always read up on scams and the new techniques to part you and your money.

The majority of these scams are out of Russia and Ukraine, with some out of the former Soviet Union (FSU) countries.

Nigeria, Ghana and the Philippines have recently jumped on the bandwagon.

Disabled World warns its members that Internet dating and purchasing items online can be risky.

It is just not a good idea to send a stranger who you have never met, especially in another country, money period.

Regardless what he/she needs it for, a visa and passport to come and see you, an operation for a loved one, a new computer, internet fees or he/she's in Moscow on their way to see you and there's a hidden fee that they need help paying or else they'll be stranded at the Moscow airport for the rest of their life.

Disabled World members should get to know a potential date well before agreeing to meet.

Initial meetings should use common sense, such as meeting in a public place or be with a friend. Be aware of classified buyers and sellers especially anyone offering a cashiers check over the asking price and requesting you send the extra funds to Nigeria or another country.

Ensure you are positive the buyer or seller is who they say they are.
