Global Personals - MARITALAFFAIR.CO.UK SCAM Internet
Within days of subscribing to www.maritalaffair.co.uk, alarm bells started ringing. I became more and more suspicious about the nature of the site.
In my opinion, the company that operates this website is running a huge scam.
I have been a long-term member of another adult chat site, of which I have met dozens of women, due to my physique and personality.
I am always complimented about my physique, and do not have to wait long before I get female attention.
But on this site, things are very different - the women have not once commented on the photos of my physique.
They also seem to send messages within minutes of each other (very strange when it can be days between recieving messages).
The messages recieved also seem to be worded very similar.
Also, there doesn't seem to be any interaction, for example when asked a number of questions, the member's reply will not contain any answers to those questions.
I am not into cyber sex, so I find it strange that when trying to have a conversation, the woman starts to talk explicitely, completely out of nowhere. I am not against it, neither am I offended by it, but I just get the impression it is not a genuine person.
Rather than talk on the site, it is much easier and quicker to talk by email, so when arranging to meet, I requested an email or contact number (making it clear that it doesn't have to be their usual - it could just be a temporary email address - easily and freely obtained). But not once did I recieve an email - and I would like to add that none of the women even acknowledged me requesting an email address!
After arranging to meet about six women, putting all the dates in my calendar, I waited for contact by email.
Instead, each of the six women, in turn, came up with an excuse why they could not meet up.
This might not seem strange to some people, but please bear in mind that these women are apparently on the site to meet for no-strings sex, and I have never had these problems or setbacks on any other website.
I would like to point out that if you do not sign in for a few days, you get emails from the website telling you that someone is interested in you (winked at you) - yet when you sign in to check, that person has mysteriously disappeared from the site (you get a pop up telling you that the subscription is no longer active).
Also I find it strange that women looking for what I am looking for, that are looking for guys that fit my description, when contacted by me - as they live a short distance away, do not reply at all.
Yet I get plenty of offers of regular no-strings sex from women that live hundreds of miles away!
This just does not add up at all, it all points to a bogus website.
Plus the fact that there are not really that many members on the site, at least nowhere at all near enough to justify the 65.00 subscription fee.
In my opinion, www.maritalaffair.co.uk is a complete rip-off. I believe this so strongly that I am spending my time writing this, to warn other people not to even bother visiting the site, let alone wasting your hard-earned cash on it.
Global Personals, the company that run this scam, are dishonest and I hope that one day they will be brought to justice.
