Safety Advice

Dating is fun but to ensure you do it in the safest way possible we have put together some golden rules to help you get the most out of your dating journey.

  • Never give money. If someone you are communicating with on match.com asks you for money or your bank details they are likely to be a scammer. Read more about scammers here.
    If you have experienced monetary fraud online, report it to Action Fraud via their reporting tool here.
  • Don’t give out your number. Wait until you know someone a little better before you share your contact details. If someone asks for your number straight away, politely decline.
  • Report unwarranted behaviour. If you encounter a suspicious member on the site or someone has been rude to you, do not hesitate to report them to the Customer Care team.
  • Meet in a public place. When you meet another date9ja.com member for the first time, do it in a public place like a bar or a café. Do not go to their home and do not give them your address.
  • Arrange your own transport. Don’t let your date pick you up from your home on your first meeting.
  • Tell a friend. Inform someone you know and trust that you are going on a date and give them details of where you are going.
  • Stay connected. Make sure your phone is charged before your date.
  • Take action. If you have encountered an incident of a serious nature call the police straight away and report your experience to date9ja.com on 08037976056, or by email at info@date9ja.com

Our Customer Care team works hard to protect our members while keeping the site relaxed and enjoyable. To ensure that you have the safest experience, use your best judgement when dating.

date9ja.com works closely with the Online Dating Association (ODA) to promote safe practice by its members and raise safety awareness. You can find the ODA Date Safe guidance for consumers here. This provides further helpful tips on how to keep online dating an enjoyable, safe and fun experience.
