Key advice

For a positive experience


Let’s start with a few fundamental rules:

Don’t share your personal details too quickly and never give your address, email address or phone number to someone unless you trust them completely.

Never pass on your passwords or confidential information.

Be mindful of your children’s privacy and safety. Photos showing minors, even if they are with an adult, will be removed.

Never send money, especially by bank transfer or money order, without making sure that the person you are speaking to is who they say they are. Don’t forget that scams can often be very convincing.
