with people online.
- You should not share or disclose your password with any third party – even if they
are your friend. If you lose your password or give it out, your personal data may be
compromised. If your profile was hacked, please report it to our team via our
- Never give out your personal or financial information. This includes not disclosing
email and physical addresses, instant messenger details, URLs, card details or even
your full name on your profile.
- Be especially aware of people claiming to be a representative of our company or
other companies and who are asking you to pay or delivery of a prize or service that
is not offered directly on the Blamoi website. Please also be extremely cautious
about people claiming to be in trouble and needing financial assistance – these are
almost always hoaxes.
- Don’t use a controversial or provocative username – this could attract the wrong
kind of attention. We recommend using your first name only.
- If you come across any inappropriate behaviour, click on the report abuse link and
this immediately alerts our team. There is also a block member function if you ever
feel uncomfortable with other members or exchanges. Don’t put up with abuse or
harassment – block the user or report them to our support team. We aim to deal with
these matters as quickly as possible and a detailed management system is in place to
monitor and quality control this aspect.

Tips for meeting up offline
- When chatting with people ask for recent photos – preferably ones that have been
taken in the last four weeks.
- Never feel pressurised into meeting up; only do so when you are sure you are ready.
- Always try and talk to the other person on the phone first.
- Tell friends where you are planning to go and arrange a check-up phone call or text.
Make sure you bring a fully charged mobile with credit, and let your friends know
how the meeting is going and also when you get home safely.
- Arrange your own transportation to and from the meeting place – don’t agree to meet
at their place or your own home. In fact, it’s best not to give out your address at
all until you have really got to know the person.
- It can be useful to come prepared with an excuse to leave if you feel the meeting is
not going well, that way you get out with a minimum of fuss.
- When meeting up for the first time, make sure it’s during daylight hours, in a
public place and while sober! And make sure you don’t drink too much after you have
met up, and keep your drink and belongings within sight at all times.
