I've been studying these sites for a little over two years now and I find the same similarities with them. Even though there are many other consumer complaint reports out there, I'm going to post mine in detail to explain these sites, how they work, and hopefully keep many of you from giving your hard earned money to these fraudulant companies.
For starters, the ads on other sites. They all claim the same thing; "Find sexy singles looking for sex near you" "Find hot women looking for sex near you" "Get Laid Tonight for FREE" "Find a F*** Buddy in -name of your city- and Get Laid for Free" Etc... It's all the same. They lure you in with the false promise of meeting people and getting laid under the ultimate lure, FREE! Who's going to turn down something free? Not many very many people. First off, these sites ARE NOT FREE! They advertise free because it is indeed free of charge to register an account with them, post photos, and create a personal profile for others to search and see. But that's about as far as FREE goes! The use the site itself for the advertised purpose will cost you a monthly fee ranging anywhere from $20 - $35 on average. You cannot view other members profiles, you cannot send other members e-mails, you can't even read the e-mails other members send you unless you upgrade your account. Therefore, NOT FREE! Secondly, these sites are advertising the actual event of you finding someone and having sex with (and this is something that is designed to lure more guys in than anything, I mean, how many guys out there are going to turn down an easy piece of ass? not many) But seriously, guys, ask yourselves this: Do you really think that there really are millions and millions of women out there who are going to give it up that easily? That they are willing to sleep with strangers they meet online who they only know for a matter of hours or days? Yeah, I'm sure my neighbor is just dying to meet some guy online tonight to invite him over and give him a shot of ass. . . whatever. . . Try craigslist if you're really looking for that. You'll probably have a better shot there and it wont cost you a penny.
In conjunction with the FREE issue, here's how many of these sites go about getting you to upgrade and pay the membership fee. These guys aren't stupid and they know that not everyone is going to automatically pay the membership fee once they have created their "FREE" profile. The reality is that most people expect free so when they don't get free they just don't bother. But that's bad for business, so what do these sites do lure people back again? They automatically start sending you countless e-mails from all these members who are supposedly interested in chatting, hooking up, and even meeting in person right off the back. So when you're bombarded with all these messages from good-looking people who you think you might have a shot with but you can't read or reply to those messages, of course most people are going to upgrade. THEY GOTCHA! Except once you upgrade all the messages slow down or completely stop comming. And the messages that you replied to, well, chances are you wont get a reply back. I experienced this same scenario on sexsearch.com, amateurmatch.com, adultfriendfinder.com, xxxblackbook.com, fling.com, wildmatch.com, and countless others; most of which are no longer existing sites. The funny thing is that in a few of these sites I didn't even have a complete profile set up before the e-mails, flirts, meet invites, and friend invites started comming in. How is it possible for me to get so many women interested when all I have is a half-assed profile set up with minimal information and not even a picture of myself? Pure BULLSHIT! I also noticed that once my paying membership stopped the e-mails started pouring in again. Amazing how I get few messages and interested females when my account is upgraded and showing up at the top of search results, yet I get about 78 times many more women taking interest and sending me messages once my membership expires and I go to the end of the line on search results. Something here doesn't smell fishy, it reaks more like rotten anchovy's cunt if you ask me! And the thing is that many of these messages were all pretty generic in a sense. It was always the "Hey! I saw your profile and you seem like someone I might be interested in. Check my profile out if you're interested. Hope to hear from you soon." That was it. And it was the same for about 96% of all the messages I would get.
Next is the existance of fake profiles on these sites; and this goes back to the point I just mentioned about women giving it up that easily. These sites are infested with fake profiles, primarily female profiles. I never tried getting a hold of or checking any guys on the sites but I'm sure it's bad there too, although maybe not as much. Now I'm sure there are a few real profiles, but not many. And there are several ways to spot which ones are the fake ones, unfortunately, not every fake profile can be easily identified using what I'm about to mention. First being the photos. If the photos look like professionally done photoshoot for a magazine, it's fake. If the background doesn't look like the average person's house; i.e. too neat, clean, orginized, and preppy like that of a soft porn photo set or studio, it's fake. Second being the description. Some profiles have semi-detailed descriptions that sound more realistic; they state what they have to offer, what they're looking for, and what they are not. Of course that doesn't make it real, but others are way too brief and others are just plain funny. For example, while I was checking out the site XXXBlackBook.com, I came across many of these. The one that I found hysterical was for a Hispanic woman in her mid 30s. Her bio was short and hilarious: "I am an illegal immigrant and I love to f*** cock." I kid you not, that was it other than the one bad quality photo of herself. Now seriously, what woman is going to come to the US illegally, register on one of these sites, and identify herself like that saying something like? That's just pathetic! Also, keep an eye out for sites where the profiles are nothing more than a big picture. As in, the entire profile is an image and not a page with indiviual images and blocks of text. I came across one such site a couple years ago. The site is now shut down but the site's profiles where nothing but one big image. You could seriously right-click and save the entire profile as a JPEG file.
Now there are many who reply to posts like mine talking about their success with these sites and how these sites do tell you that there are fake profiles on their sites. Let me tell you something about those people first. They are nothing more than representatives of these fraudulant sites. They go around the internet and find reports like mine and post trying to state the oppisite of what people like me are saying. Why? Because reports like mine are bad for business. It's bad for them that there are some of us who are not so dumb and ignorant and are willing to take the time to inform other consumers of their fraudulant services. Back to the fake profiles issue; yes, all these sites do state in their Terms of Service that there are fake profiles on the sites, that they cannot guarantee which profiles are fake or which one were posted by the actual person being depicted. Etc... All those statements in their TOS are nothing more than the clauses that keep you from taking any legal action against them for their fruadulant service. Bottom line, they are telling you in a sugar-coated, legal way, that they are providing a fraudulant service. Plain and simple!
Now here's the proof that these sites themselves are responsible for these fake profiles. A few months ago I was living in Montana and while going through AmateurMatch.com I came across a profile for a pretty hot 20 year old girl from Bozeman, MT. This was back in August, now it's December and I now live in Colorado. While going through the same site again I came across the same profile, same picture and same description. The difference, this time the girl was 29 years old and now lived in Ft. Collins, CO. Worst of all, this was one of the "Featured Members" posted on the home page immediately after logging in. The thing about many of these profiles is that they work in the same way that their ads work; there are scripts running on these pages that access your browser and read the cookies on your computer and identify the geographical location of the connection and identify your ZIP code. Once they locate your ZIP and identify what town/city you're in, it places that location or other nearby towns/cities on the ad and in this case, the profile that you're viewing. Plain and simple again, you've been had thinking that you found a hot date that lives nearby and the reality is that she doesn't nor does she have any interest in meeting you.
So with all that said, I hope many who read this haven't already given your hard earned cash to these theives who run these sites. And if you've unfortunately already done so, spread the word and let others know of the scam that these sites are running and to NOT, under any circumstance, NOT give in to giving them any money. Link to this article and spread the word.
