Dating woman gives you fake email
But as Tinder is the most popular dating app around, scammers have unleashed a legion of bots onto the dating app.
Some users have guessed that up to 50% of their matches are actually spambots.
Put on your battle gear because dating has become a minefield strewn with fakes ready to blow up in your face …
they’ll tell you everything you want to hear, but at a price.
