Online dating services geared to LDS church members are popular places for Mormons to meet. But some officials are cautioning women not to be lured into a false sense of security because of the connection of these sites to the LDS faith.
That warning comes after three Utah County women in the last month have reported they were assaulted by men they met men on LDS dating service sites.
Police say all three assaults happened after the women agreed to go to homes after meeting the men online.
Officials from online dating services say they caution members about face-to-face meetings with people they have only met virtually through the Internet.
They urge people to only meet in public places during daylight hours, have your own transportation and do not move to a private location.
