Access dating websites
The example below for the cancelation of a paid Zoosk subscription on an i Phone demonstrates how this works for subscriptions to dating sites and apps through i OS: Deleting your account permanently isn’t much different from suspending the subscription.
You just need to look for the kill switch in a different menu.
We only recommend this step when you are fully determined to end your history with the dating site.
In most cases there is no turning back from cancelling your membership, while a canceled subscription can be reactivated anytime, while the basic (free) account time remains yours for time’s being.
One often mistakes these two, but there is a significant difference between them.
To put it simply, when you cancel your subscription, you stop paying for the premium membership, and your account is transformed back to its free (but restricted) version.
So, the time has come to put an end to the era of your dating account with your (preferred) dating site.
Con artists are increasingly creating fake online profiles and tricking people on dating sites into handing over often large sums of money.
And it’s not just particularly vulnerable people who fall victim either.
“[It’s] not the case that stupid people fall for romance scams - they can be very clever,” Professor Monica Whitty, a cyber-psychologist, explains. Scamalytics, a company which runs anti-scammer software for a number of the major dating sites, are trying to reduce online dating fraud by creating profiles of the average male and female con artist.
Nancy*, a 47-year-old single mother from North Yorkshire was conned out of over £350,000 that way: “I wasn't comfortable, and then I got so far in I couldn't get myself out, and I didn't want to walk away having lost £50,000 or what-have-you, so you keep going in the hope that you're wrong and this person is genuine,” she explained to the BBC.
Nancy is now facing bankruptcy, and although her case is extreme, the average victim of online dating fraud loses £10,000 according to Action Fraud.
