Help & Safety Guide For Chatrooms
The internet and community/chat sites like ours are great resources, but there
will always be people on them with bad intentions. Please read our tips and
guidelines on this page to help you stay safe from identity theft, hacking,
cyber stalking, harassment, bullying and internet predators.

Your Personal Information
Never post on the web or give out in chat rooms information that can be used to
identify you such as your real name, address, mobile or home number, school or
work place. This also applies to your photos, make sure things such as your
house number, car registration or school name or work place can not be seen in
any of your pictures. Be sure to check your email address does not contain
personal information such as the name of where you work or study. If it does get
another email account such as Hotmail
Never give out any of your passwords to anyone, even your friends. We will never
ask you for it and be suspicious of anyone who does. There are always new scams
being thought up to try and trick you out of your information so be wary,
especially if its concerning your bank details or other financial information.
No ISP, bank or web service will ever ask you for passwords or other details in
an email or instant message. Make sure your passwords can't be guessed easily,
always use combinations of letters and numbers.
The chat rooms on RGW are not constantly monitored. If you enter our chat rooms
you could be exposed to conversations that you may find offensive. If you are
unsure do not enter our chat rooms. The same common rules apply in chat, do not
give out any personal information to strangers.
Its very easy to lie on the internet. Just because someone says they are a cute,
young 18 year old doesn't mean they are. It's also very easy to post fake
pictures and even fake videos. If someone looks to good to be true, they
Never send money or get involved in financial transactions with strangers
So you have been chatting to someone for months, your good friends and now they
ask you to send money for their flight to meet you/school fees/(insert any
reason that need cash). Don't send the money or you will be another scam victim.
If someone asks you to help transfer money, don't do it.
We don't recommend meeting people you have only chatted to online. If you do
want to meet someone you have only ever chatted to online, make sure you do the
Tell someone else where you are going, what time and for how long.
Always meet in a very public place and only during the day time.
Always take at least one friend with you.
If you think the other person is lying or you are unsure about anything walk
Bullying and Harassment
Often the best thing to do is ignore the person as they are just trying to get a
reaction from you. If its happening on this site, you can block their profile to
prevent them from messaging you. Most other websites, chat rooms and email
systems have ways of blocking people. If the harassment is continuing use the
link at the bottom of this page to contact us.
Spam and Junk Email
The best thing to do is delete them. If you are getting spam in your RGW Inbox
use the link at the bottom of this page to contact us and we will investigate
it. If its along the lines of making lots of money fast, delete it.
Keep your computer safe
Make sure you have adequate anti-virus and firewall protection on your computer.
Never download anything from the internet without them.
Don't just accept information you are presented with. Is this girl who wants to
see you on web cam but she won't show herself for real? Is the man from Nigeria
who needs your help transferring his dead fathers millions for real? Does the
email your bank sent really need to confirm all your banking and online password
for real? Does the person claiming to be a RGW admin asking for your RGW
password or email password for real? In all these examples the answer is NO.
Be respectful to others
Treat other members with the same respect you expect from them. RGW does not
tolerate our members disrespecting others, bullying, harassment, hacking,
spamming, identity theft or fraud.
Be responsible while you are online and don't do anything that makes you
uncomfortable. Remember people who you chat to online are strangers. If you are
having a problem with someone on this site, use the link at the bottom of this
page to tell us about it. If you ever feel in real danger from someone online
then go direct to your local authorities.
