Imagine This: Awakened by morning sunlight streaming through your window—your first thought today
was a single, stunning realization. No, it wasn’t a nightmare. The man in bed next to you is not the man
you married. He is a complete stranger with a fabricated persona.
Deborah Nelson of Colorado Springs, CO, knows first-hand the shock of this terrifying scenario and is
helping prevent it from happening to others. In her true story, “Oops, I married a Con Artist,” Nelson
proves that now, more than ever, singles need to know the identity of the people they are dating.
The crime of identity theft in financial transactions is costly, but is also beginning to infect personal
relationships, especially amongst the dating population. Due to the phenomenon of Internet anonymity, it
is estimated at least 50% of dating profiles (roughly estimated 25-30 million in the United States) are
false; thereby making the remaining genuine online daters vulnerable to fraud.
Those who harvest trust from love relationships to gain access to identity information and assets can
easily camouflage theft inside of love and marriage. Shielded by civil and community property law, they
are rarely prosecuted. For people engaged in romantic risk, a new patent pending system invented by
Nelson verifies identities in order to limit the escalating reality of relationship fraud.
An international conference held in Toronto concluded that an Internet identification system is critical
to stemming online fraud. Nelson's patent pending dating ID system offers the online dating safety solution
for millions dating online. The system provides a convenient, continuous, non-invasive alternative to the
traditional one at a time, expensive background check.
This new dating safety tool empowers singles with certified identities before they become involved with
The Dating Passport. invented by Nelson, also saves time wasted on unwanted false and frivolous online dating
interactions. In an environment of online anonymity; the safe dating tool also solves the problem of
unknowingly dating married persons, along with preventing other fraud issues yet undiscovered due to
proliferation of online anonymity.
Nelson, with partner Private Investigator Linda Schneeloch, offer the Web’s most comprehensive identity
verification service for online daters at The Dating Passport website.
For an annual fee about the cost of one special date, The Dating Passport (patent pending) certifies its
members identities through a secure voluntary online application. When Dating Passport members want to
verify each others’ identities, they agree to exchange Dating Passport Numbers. The annual fee covers its
members by continuously giving them access for exchanging dating ID, and members have the security of
knowing whom they are dating. Marital status, and other “datability factors” are verified, critical to
know at the start of a relationship. The Dating Passport also includes a photo verification option to guard
members against being drawn in by fake dating profile photos.
“If you are involved with a Dating Passport Member, you know who they are,” said Nelson. “In the world of
online anonymity, The Dating Passport is the only safe dating tool available; it offers continuous protection
to prevent the devastation of relationship fraud. Dating Passport holders have volunteered their identity
information with nothing to hide.”
