TWO Internet DATING Sites that are crawling with SCAMMERS!

A majority of the 'women' scammers I have worked CONTACTED ME on one of these two dating sites.
Both are crawling with SCAMMERS, both Russian, and Nigerian. Please note, I did not contact these women directly. In all cases, I set up a middle-aged 'male' profile, and sat back. Within 24 hours, they were contacting ME on the internal email system.
NOTE:There are some 'legitmate' people on these sites, BUT, due to the massive amounts of SCAMMERS you will have to wade through to get to them, I would advise keeping away from these two dating sites.

What should make me suspicious of somebody who contacts me on a dating site?

ALWAYS CHECK THE PROFILE OF THE PERSON ON THE DATING SITE! Frequently, the details will change after they contact you...age, location, PICTURE, name, occupation, ANYTHING!
Be suspicious if they list a US address on the profile, and then tell you they are in another country in an email.
The PROFILE has a thumbnail of a pretty,buxom, blue eyed, blonde. The pictures they send are of a redhead with brown eyes, who is pretty, but could use a meal!
The 'Lawyer' in the profile is now a 'food service worker' in the emails.
The NIGERIAN scammers also have trouble getting the physical descriptions 'right'. Sometimes you'll see a 6'0" Girl who weighs 80 pounds in the profile!
The NIGERIANS will frequently claim to be a US citizen, working somewhere else.
FREQUENTLY, they will use a picture of a pretty girl, claim to be a MODEL working in some AFRICAN company, and they magically, are 'stranded' and need help, (and money!)
(Stories range from 'passport stolen, man trying to rape me, can't pay hotel bill, lost airline ticket, brought her for job and they skipped out without paying me....' and on, and on.....

Be smart, use your head on ANY dating site. Do not give out damaging personal information, or send money or gifts to ANYONE you have not met!
