Most professionals will at least have a Linked In page. Do some reconnaissance by using search engines to find public records.

If you cannot find anything on the Internet about a person, they might not be telling you their real name, which is again a red flag. You might discover that (as with of Glenn Whitter) other people have complained about a person. If a person says they own a house, you will be able to easily determine if that's true, and also where it is and how long they have lived there.

Almost everyone in the United States has some sort of Internet presence that when pieced together creates a real identity.

Video chatting with a person that you meet online is a common, normal practice in online dating.

In fact, all the couples I know who met online said that their first real conversations were over the phone or by video chat.

The person who remains calm and collected usually has the upper-hand during divorce proceedings (not to mention, relationships in general).

During this time of turmoil, you should consider scheduling an appointment with a professional who can help you vent out your frustrations and make rational decisions.

My husband and I used the Internet to get to know each other when we first met.

Those were the days before online dating, but because we lived 3,000 miles away from each other, we used the Internet to communicate and become closer.

Glenn Whitter is a man who targeted victims on an online dating site with the sole intention of scamming them out of their money.

He was able to coerce many women into giving up their entire savings.

If a person makes excuses every time that you want to Skype or talk via phone, this is a red flag.

They might claim that they don't have time, or that their camera is broken, but keep in mind that every modern day smartphone, laptop and tablet has the ability to video chat.

Whitter has since disappeared and has an outstanding warrant for his arrest.
