If you have doubts about your online friends, contact the authorities to seek further advice before too late. (Police, Immigration, Customs and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission)
If you are having a relationship through the Internet as you need to or you’re desperate to find a life partner, you must be knowledgeable about the Internet and IT. You have to know how to pick the websites to communicate on and you must always be cautious about risks on the Internet. You should always test someone you met through the Internet to find out if they are using a real or fake identity.
If someone you met on the Internet proposes marriage to you in a short period of time, test their commitment and sincerity by asking them to meet up first and see if they’re willing. This way, you don’t have to fork out a penny to prove they are not scammers.
Don’t assume that making a transaction to someone’s account in Malaysia is safe. Usually, we don’t know who the account belongs to and the money will be withdrawn immediately by a third party who is cooperating with the love scam syndicate.
Don’t give your personal info or background to someone you just met online as it can be exploited by criminals.
If your online acquaintance tells you that they are a foreigner, check their residence address through the Internet.
