Don’t give out personal information too soon

Communicate via email until you get a feel for the person. Also, posting pictures of children in ads may attract the wrong people.

Use a cell phone

Once you decide to move further along in the communication process, don’t give out your home phone number as it is easily traceable and may lead to you home address.

Go with your instincts

If at any time something feels strange or raises a red flag, listen to your gut feeling and put safety first.

Ask for a recent photo

Online is a great place to meet, however it is also an effective tool for disguise. Many people use old pictures or pictures of friends.

Meet in a public place

When you feel comfortable enough to meet in person, choose a place with people around and drive your own car. Be sure to tell a friend who you are meeting and where you’re going.
