We're sure you're aware of the potential risks involved with the internet, especially with regards to your personal information, personal finances and even personal safety. But, in truth, it doesn't take a lot to minimise those risks, if not eliminate them completely.
Follow these few simple check points and you'll have nothing to worry about.
As with any login information, choose a password that you can easily remember but that would be difficult for anyone else to guess. You may be tempted to use ex-partner/children's names but we've lost count of the amount of times family/friends have successfully guessed the passwords of our members and, quite frankly, have not liked what they've seen in their accounts! Red Hot Social will never e-mail you asking for your password, so if you get anything like this, please forward it on to us.
We know how appealing it may seem for you to like the look of a fellow Member and instantly want to provide them with your personal contact details but, please be aware, that once you've given those personal details away, you cannot get them back.Red Hot Social has as an excellent Messaging system which means you don't need to give out any contact information at all until you're happy to, so don't be afraid to tell someone that you'd rather stick to the on-site system for a bit longer. If they're genuine then they won't mind waiting.
You should treat people in much the same way online as you do in the real world. If someone you barely know asks to borrow money or asks for any sort of financial details whatsoever, then alarm bells should start to ring, no matter how sexy they are or how interested they seem in you. You wouldn't expect someone you met in the pub last week to ask for money, so you shouldn't expect it online either. If you have any such contact from another Member then you should use the "Report this profile" link to alert our Support Team.
Ok, so you've found someone who gets your blood pumping, you've chatted with them via Red Hot Social and also over the phone, and you're gagging to meet them for a sexy rendezvous - the bottom line is that you should always stay in control. Before you start tearing eachother's clothes off behind closed doors, arrange an initial meeting in a public place, tell someone when and where you're going, and arrange to call them at a given time to confirm all's going well. It's always better to be safe than sorry.
Here at Red Hot Social, it really gets us going to know that we're bringing our Members together for some sexy action and, rest assured, the vast majority of people you meet online will be genuine people. However, it's best to plan for the worst and then allow people to prove themselves otherwise, but don't let the occasional dodgy character spoil your enjoyment. Just be aware that, sadly, there is the odd one out there.
