Here are some tips for staying safe when meeting someone online:

  • Be sure to meet in person or at least ask to see the person via a video (photos are not enough as they are easy to fake).
  • Never share driver licence details, passports, or other identification documents (eg. Proof of Age or student cards).
  • Don’t send money or agree to do personal transactions for someone you’ve never met face-to-face.
