What’s the sad truth about online dating and social media communication? 50% of the admirers who chat you up are scammers. Here’s how to spot the fakes and stay safe.


I absolutely love working with ABC TV’s is The List Show. This segment reveals the dark underbelly of your online communications. Whether it’s an admiring DM on Instagram or a chat initiated by someone who fancies you online— here’s the reality of today’s online environment. Scammers prevail. And unfortunately, they account for at least 50% of the online participants.

It’s not just about breaking into your heart. It’s about breaking into your wallet. And then, breaking your heart while they break your wallet.

Huge thanks to producer Jacqui Denker and the entire staff at ABC!
