Adult Friend Finder Fake profiles manged and operated by Adult Friend Finder , Internet
I let my account subscription lapse recently. Adult Friend Finder uses the following tactics to lure you back to paying a subscription: They move your profile to the front of the list so that you get more profile views. You'll also get more flirts, hot lists and emails. This is an unethical tactic.
Most users know there are a lot of fake profiles on this site. Did you know there are fake profiles managed and operated by Adult Friend Finder themselves? Apparently there are. There are lots of them. A day after quitting my subscription, I received no less than 3 emails from fake profiles. These blatantly operated by AFF to give these profiles the appearance of legitimacy. This is a tactic devised to bait a user to renewing a subscription.
I have been on here long enough to know what profiles are fake and which ones are not. The fake ones used were so good that you couldn't tell if it was fake until it was used in the way that it was.
Besides this issue there are number of other tactics that AFF uses that users should be aware of.
AFF does little if anything to reduce fake profiles or remove them when they appear.
Men out number women 11 to 1 on average on this site. Making your selection if you are man very limited and difficult.
Your pictures aren't safe on AFF and they will be taken to be sold to 3rd parties. Once your pictures are on the internet, they are everywhere.
AFF will set your setting for auto renew back to renew about 48 hours before your subscription expires. This is a very bad business practice if not illegal. You must go and check your account subscription status the day before it renews to make sure that button is set to off.
When renewing subscriptions your browser will try and select the year long subscription of $149.99 instead of the 30 day period for $ 29.99 This is built in trick to get more money out of you.
AFF uses a myriad of fake pictures and profiles and advertisements of girls that don't exist to lure new users.
Adult Friend Finder is a very bad company and should be shut down. There are other sites out there like plentyoffish.com which are free and not as bad.
