Seeking Arrangement caters to a very specific type of relationship, but the lessons here should apply to other dating sites and even to other aspects of digital life, Leroy Velasquez, a Seeking Arrangement spokesman, tells . It's a really crappy version of what a man or woman would get on a dating profile," he says."Because of the fact that we do cater to wealthy demographic, we do get an influx of scammers," he says. Seeking Arrangement got its latest stats from screening new profiles over 10 months.And her pitch was straightforward: Looking for a life partner …successful, spiritually minded, intelligent, good sense of humor, enjoys dancing and travelling.

Seeking Arrangement has never found a fraudulent profile in which the person said he or she had a high school diploma and no bachelor's degree, Velasquez says.
