There is no substitution for acting with caution when communicating with someone you are just getting to know.
Here are some essential 'rules-of-the-road' for safely navigating any relationship, but especially one that begins online.
Also, be aware of these common red flags when you’re getting to know someone new.
Watch out for someone who: If a match does any of the above activities or makes you suspicious in any other way, please report this as a Match Concern by emailing [email protected] that we can investigate the matter.
While e Harmony routinely monitors account activity and investigates all complaints of unusual, inappropriate or falsified accounts, e Harmony does not conduct criminal background checks at the time an account is registered.
As with any personal interaction, keep in mind it is always possible for people to misrepresent themselves.
But before you share phone numbers, make sure you have discussed the need to respect each other's privacy.You also have the option to use e Harmony's Secure Call® service that allows you and your match to call each other without exchanging phone numbers right away.While we conduct certain types of screening and utilize a variety of screening technologies and resources, such as screening our U. subscribers against public sex offender registries in the United States, it is important to remember that such screenings are inherently limited.It is also important to note that our optional identity verification service, which is powered by our partner Rely ID®, is not a background check.We rely on the honesty of our members when filling out our e Harmony Relationship Questionnaire to supply us with their correct date of birth, marital status, city and state of residence, occupation, educational background and other information.If you find anything that doesn't seem to add up, follow your intuition and stop communicating with that person.
