CougarLife.com Fake profiles, fake messages, fake flirts. Pay to read messages Internet
To whom it may concern,
This is a message regarding a fraudulent product called CougarLife.com. This web-site uses both paypal and MC/Visa payment services to process its payments. I must inform you that it is well known and I have now have my own personal experience being scammed by these fraudsters.
Advertising a professional looking website promising to hook up older woman with younger guys. In fact, most of the profiles on that web-site are fakes that are designed to lure in young buyers and send out fake messages and flirts. As a guest member you can receive messages but cannot read them until you upgrade to premium. In this way they suck you into their product. Once you're registered you quickly realize how untrue it all is. Even though you get messages like "you have the best profile on the site" with an empty profile, or "Meet up?", you can message them back but NEVER get a reply. That's because they don't exist.
Furthermore, you must spend your credit bought with real money to send and receive messages, send virtual gifts, and even read messages from other guest female members. I've already mailed off my complaint to the BBB and my case number is 1269776
You can see a vast number of other complaints that correspond exactly to mine at these review sites:
and many many more. On Youtube you can see videos talking about CougarLife.com with top comments going over their fraudulent activity. I'm sure the company also bought this domain name: cougarlifescam.com and advertise the website ensuring potential victims that it is not a scam. Sure, there are some real people on this site. It doesn't justify what they've done.
This message is being sent out to Visa, Mastercard, and PayPal. All of you have boycotted payments on the website of truth wikileaks.org, which is a pathetic act of subdued compliance by all of you. You act as if you're a scared Chinese worker afraid of losing your job or being sent to labour camp.
I expect nothing from all of you, but if you have any decency left in your companies you'll at least look into it and possibly avoid YOUR customers from getting scammed as I did in the future.
Thank you for your time.
-- and the cancellation by phone
I phoned to cancel my subscription and was successful, or so they said. The woman was American by accent which made it a lot quicker than many phone services. It went something like this:
Her: thank you for calling cougar life, how may I help you?
Me: I just want to cancel my subscription
Her: Username please?
Me: C-R-A-Z-Y-P-H-I-R-E; crazyfire
Her: Okay nothing came up
Me: Okay I spelled it out for you. C as in cat, R as in rat, A as in apple, Z!, YY!, P as in peter, H as in HAT, I as in IRENE, R, E
Her: Okay, as reason for cancelling?
Me: There are fake profiles, it is a bit of a scam. I have already contacted the better business bureau and cancelled my credit card in case of extra charges after I cancel this
Her: Okay well I have cancelled your account. Sorry to hear.. You have a nice day and-
ME: YUP. BYE.
Word of advice: cancel your credit card on cancellation of this service. Do what I did and contact Visa, Mastercard, and Paypal and alert them of their fraudulent activity. If they can block wikileaks payments and child porn sites they can block payments to this bullshit too.
Thanks all and have a great day.
