Dangers of Online Dating

October 12th, 2012 at 4:43 am

Police are searching for even more victims of Derrick D. Chaney, who they suspect is an online predator. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Chaney was charged for several violations including three counts of criminal sexual assault, unlawful restraint and kidnapping.

Chaney met a woman from Davenport, Iowa on a dating website. He communicated with the woman online and on the telephone for several weeks before meeting the woman at a motel in Aurora, Illinois. He allegedly held the woman against her will and sexually assaulted her at that time.

During the course of the investigation, police were led to believe that he has met numerous other women online through dating and singles websites as well as in several nightclubs. He has used several aliases, lied about his occupation and level of education as well as his financial status. He likes to give an appearance of being rich which, is helped by the fact that he drives luxury vehicles and dresses well. He also has repeatedly boasted about his VIP status at different clubs in the northwest suburbs.

Chaney is being held in the Kane County jail on a $500,000.00 bond. Aurora detectives ask that any women who have been victimized by Chaney to contact the department at (630) 256-3000.

While dating online can be convenient it can also be very dangerous. Practice safety by knowing who you are talking to and always agree to meet in a public place for the first date.
