CarpeDM, An Online Dating App For Black Women, Now Offers Full Member Background Checks

CarpeDM — an online dating app exclusive to Black women — has partnered with KarmaCheck to incorporate full background checks for its members on the dating platform.

Howard Law School alumni Naza Shelley and Sali Hama launched the app to ensure Black women could be equally as successful while exploring the world of dating.

“We’re excited to partner with CarpeDM to help make the online dating experience safer and more trustworthy for singles. While quickly and accurately verifying user data, KarmaCheck goes to great lengths to ensure that user data is protected for users and privacy concerns are addressed,” KarmaCheck’s CEO Eric Ly said in a press statement.

Verifications include identity, employment, income, sex offender registry, and criminal history. Key criminal history markers include, but are not limited to: sex crimes, domestic violence, violent crimes, financial crimes like fraud and theft, and identity theft.

While membership invitations are extended at the discretion of CarpeDM, low-level infractions, traffic violations, and misdemeanor drug offenses are not alone disqualifying; the company is more focused on critical markers that meaningfully impact a potential member’s dateability and fitness for membership. 

CarpeDM’s CEO, Naza Shelley, explains, “Singles have been asking for more accountability from dating apps and services for years, but most have not stepped up to the plate, leaving both their female and male users vulnerable to being scammed, defrauded, and physically violated.

“While it’s always important for singles to do their own due diligence, we’re committed to doing our part to help curate a safe dating community with the highest quality members,” she added.
