Seeking Arrangement has never found a fraudulent profile in which the person said he or she had a high school diploma and no bachelor's degree, Velasquez says.

Certain races Although American Indians make up less than 2 percent of the U. population, 36 percent of scam profiles say they're Native.

For example, some web sites have over 20.000 profiles, however this is not a reason to find any scam inside this Agency, it only gives you an impression how many profiles you can find on the 'entire' web.

So, the chance is present, but if you prepare yourself in a proper way, the risk of being scammed can be reduced to almost zero.

Doctoral delusion Thirty-seven percent of scam profiles say they have a graduate degree and 54 percent say they have doctorates.

Lovin' God Scammers are mostly Catholic, or at least they say they are.

Eighty-two percent of banned Seeking Arrangement profiles say they're Catholic and religion was the most common trait among fraudulent accounts.

But if this and all our other information is not enough for you to feel yourself 'well prepared' and certain then you always can decide to provide yourself with more information, tools or services.
