JWMatch gives good advise for their users in their Online Dating Safety Article.
How to use the site to stay safe and how to spot a potential scam:

http://www.jwmatch.com/s/buzz/2228/4

JWMatch Support says:

"We are well aware of the current internet scams doing its rounds.
Daily we delete and blacklist dozens of profiles we suspect or receive tip
offs about.
We wage a constant battle against scammers trying to abuse our site and
users.

Having said that - we have sophisticated software that can track returning
problem users coming in from the same IP address. As soon as they reappear,
we delete their profiles. Granted, users may well come in via different IP's.
For this reason we do daily searches via country logins and remove all
suspicious profiles. We have dedicated staff who attend to this 24/7.

Regrettably, all forms of scamming - be it online or offline is a huge
money-making industry. The trick is to always remember - never ever send
money, no matter how desperate the plea.

The "Financial Scam"
Financial Scammers may put up fake pictures, indicate living in one country
and claim to be vacationing or working in another. After some lovely
correspondence, they may ask for money due to an "emergency", financial
trouble, a sick relative, or funds required enabling them to visit you.

If you would like to assist another member in buying an air-ticket, book and
buy the flight in an office in the country you live and make sure it is
refundable to only you. Your friend can later pick up the ticket in the
nearest city or airport where she/he lives.

* Never send money to other members!

Warning Signs

* Member is not in the location as stated in the profile.[will state they
are English speaking yet cannot string a decent sentence together.]
* Member may ask for financial assistance due to an “emergency” or funds
for a possible visit.
* Member does not want to communicate via our site, wants your private
email right away.
* Member wants exclusive contact with you.


Remember to Use common sense. Online dating isn't really all that different
from meeting people in the real world. Used wisely, it is in fact the best
possible way to meet people who share your interests and passions. Ten
thousands of people are making new friends and many of them are getting
married as a result of meeting on our site every year. The key thing to
remember is that your personal safety is paramount so trust yourself. If
you're at all unsure about a person however, then don't take a risk."

Hi bibi73. Welcome to Eater.

I've searched the site high and low for 10 minutes and can't find the article that you're referring to. And if I can't find it after expressly looking for it, then it's going to be difficult for someone who knows nothing about scams to find it unless they accidentally bump into it.

If you're a member over there, perhaps you could suggest to the admin that he/she makes the warning a little more prominent? Obviously, it's something that not a lot of site owners want to do - advertising negativities isn't necessarily a good thing. But in the long run, it should pay dividends.
