Fling.com is supposedly Worlds Best Personals for Adults. It is a sort of dating website.

Like all dating websites it allows you to explore the users before signing in (and paying). I saw a lot of gorgeous women, so I pay $60 for 3 months access.

But Only to find out that 99% of the profiles on this website are fake. After contacting a member she will tell her e-mail address, only to send you spam from porn websites if your contact her.

I complained with Fling.com and the only thing they know to do is copying and pasting the same answers, telling me to watch out for scammers and report each user. I believe that they dont have human beings answering e-mails, but automated machines. As instructed I reported all scams and fake profiles, and they did absolute nothing about them. They are still online, and you can also see several profiles with the same pictures, I reported them and I got the exact same reply. And nothing was done.

Then there is also another thing that shows the commitment of these people with their business. On their website there is an option called get your photos verified. The idea is that you scan or take a picture of your drivers license and they will tell on your profile that you are a real person, not a fake profile. On their website is posted that they will update your profile in 24 H after you upload your drivers license.

I did that and it took 3 WEEKS for them to reply with an acknowledge e-mail. And right after this e-mail I got another one telling me that they couldnt verify my ID because my fax was with bad quality. My FAX??? I uploaded a 3 megapixel picture, morons!

One way to prevent these fake profiles would be adding an option on their search engine to only allow display of people that paid to be there and not the free (and fake) profiles. Guess what I got as an answer? The same message again.

The bottom line? Dont subscribe to Fling.com, it is a take the money and run scam.
