• Choose a public place such as a cafe when meeting someone for the first time, and ensure other people are around.

• Take a person with you to meetings.

• Tell a friend or family member where you're going, and keep a cell phone on you.

• Always trust your instincts.

• Never post or give out your address, phone number or meeting place online.
