Beware of online friends as not all are genuine

To make ends meet, she mentioned working long hours in online sales for Courts. One day, feeling unwell due to menstrual cramps, she asked me to assist in completing Courts sales orders to meet her quota faster. She provided a number for an alleged Courts customer service support WhatsApp group and urged me to register, citing her as a referrer. Though I requested more details, she evaded explanation, promising to provide more information once I joined the group.
Raising my suspicions, I researched online and found a similar scam alert. When I confronted her, she accused me of not wanting to help and insulting her. I decided to end our interaction. Notably, her Tinder account had disappeared.
This incident underscores the need for caution when encountering individuals on dating apps. Due to my vigilance, I avoided financial loss and over-sharing of personal information. While my time and confidence in finding a partner were affected, I remained cautious and unharmed.
