Has anyone here ever communicated with a woman from a dating site and then when you enter her mobile into your phone, whatsapp tells you you're communicating with a business account? 

I'm referring to women that are not business owners of course.

I've never had that happen to me but I don't use dating sites... I did get a few ladies whatsapp numbers by talking to them on the streets.

I have never claimed to be a Blue Beret

Spurious claims about 'seeing action' with the Blue Berets are debunked >here<

Nope, but it's not necessarily a red flag

https://faq.whatsapp.com/general/account-and-profile/what-is-whatsapp-business/?lang=en

Bad advice as usual. why would a lady need to set up a business account to talk?

From whatsapp's page: If you're not a business, there's no need to download this separate app.

If a woman gave you a business number I'd cut off contact.

I don't think it matters what account on any device any women has..

The end of the day it takes just a small conversation to figure anyone out... I can suss a scammer out within 10 seconds.. But I would of already worked her out before it even came to exchanging contact information..

No point beating about the bush!!
I support no government anywhere, ever, never. No institution, No religion!!

I need about 20 seconds!  :chuckle: You're right, if you talk to them enough you'll soon realize their intentions. Usually 1 video chat is all I need to get a good idea.
