Members have warned don't agree to share personal email and other information without checking up on your matches.
They say, those that have their email addresses on their profiles are typically fraudsters and have wide age preferences.
When this was mentioned to Lava Place staff, users found the scammers' accounts were deleted, but within 24 hours the scammers would return creating a new account.
Some members were so turned off that they left the site. There are slightly more males then females that visit. When browsing the site, many are also doing it from home.
Lava Place singles can also connect with one another via Virtual Kisses.Some former members said they received false stories from Ghana residents and requests to help them financially.They will put an urgency on communicating with them, but since the site is free, one member said, "Why the rush?" Another said, he asked a single for social networking details to verify who she was or to talk with her on Skype, he learned that she was nothing more than a scam artist.So do be careful, like with most dating websites with a fee or not, there will always be deceptive people on the web.
