This is one out of the many "dating for sex" sites out there that says rip-off all over it. Www.XxxBlackBook.com is similar to many of the other claimed to be scam sites such as AdultFriendFinder.com, SexSearch.com, HornyMatch.com, and many other sex seeking sites out there.

So I decided to get curious about this particular site. I signed up & made a profile. A few mintues after I made a profile, I recieved two e-mails from two contacts. One was informing me that a woman added me as a contact. The other was just a wink basicly. I couldn't reply back because I had to be a paid member in order to reply back. So I paid $14.00 for a 5 day trial membership, instead of paying large sums of money for a premium membership & taking a risk of being scammed out of large sums of dollars.

The moment I paid for my membership, I tried to contact the two women I recieved an e-mail from. However, a few hours later (even days later), I recieved no reply back from the users. I also found other women to contact which their profiles claimed they're from my area. So I tried e-mailing them too, but I never got a response back from the other users either. So I went to a different approach. The ones that appeared as "online now!" in their profile, I sent them an instant message. Still, no response! Not even a hello! Just dead silence & a blank screen.

After many attempts to contact the users, I started to get suspicious. The only thing that came to my mind is the girls on this site are not real. They have fake profiles & pics to make themselves look real. Still to this day, no e-mail, no replies. Not even a phone call! On the very first page of this site, it claims "you get laid. Guaranteed"! I was always told if something is too good to be true, it usually is. You can't get nothing out of this POS! It's all a set-up just to get your money. That's all they want!

In conclusion, like the other foamy sites out there, this site is a joke! Don't fall for their bullshit! All they're trying to do is get your money. It's obvious. The only way you can contact them is via e-mail by clicking contact, which claims technicall support for the website recieves the e-mail.

No contact #, no address. Not even an e-mail address to the webmaster of this site. This should apparently be considered a red flag to other browsers & members on any dating site they're on. All I know is their money & credit card orders are being processed by a comapny known as Epoch.com. The e-mail & contact number I have in this report is for to contact Epoch billing support at Epoch.com & not the website I'm making the rip-off report towards.

Don't be a victim to site scammers like this & don't fall for them! If you come across a dating site for a serious relationship, just to met people, or for NSA/sex partner, do a search on the website first. Then, take other precautions to protect yourself from being scammed. Don't fall for "anything"! They'll do what they can to trick you just to get your money. Lord knows I've been a victim to other sites like the ones I described in this report. Save your money for the bar. Or spend your money on a site that is lagit. It's more worth your money than to waste it on these greedy little money hungry jack-a**es.

My Investigation..

AUTHOR: No Gunts - ()

It is advertised as a FREE FREE FREE site, and after registering and profiling you will find out that any sort of contact requires a paid membership. This is basically a bait and switch setup. I noticed that payments go to dublin, ireland and also a holding company in canada.

This site is mostly fake profiles that are spammed to the user in the forms of "mail, flirt, contact". a few randoms a day AND if the user browses other profiles, those profiles will eventually "respond". Looking at the source code, You will see that all these mail, flirts, and contacts, are designated as [ROBOT], but the mail from xxx blackbook, does not have the [robot] tag in the script. actual user profiles also do not contain the [robot] but an actual number - presumably the account number. I made a second account and checked with a 'flirt'

While there are alot of users, those people use work arounds in their profile hinting contact through alternative means - to circumvent the membership fees. the majority, well over 90% are ROBOT profiles, while the remaining accounts are mostly males that are hoping that they're off site contact works. There are some females, but they are far and few apart.

If you suspect that there is a fake account (that has interest in you) do not buy in to see what the message reads. run the account name through your web browser search engine, most of the time, you'll not only find the same name but the very same picture used on several other similiar date style sites that can be well over 5 years old. These type of businesses definitely share their fake accounts to "fluff up" their user base count. Blackbook encourages you to post multiple photos and to keep them updated regularily. why such old pictures that are spread across several other sites going back to '07-08? If they're paying for a membership and are actually looking for whatever, theyre going to be updating pics with something more modern.

My experiance was filling out a real long profile, and I noticed the profiles I browsed eventually sent me 1 of the 3 forms of contact. some even urging me to get into the chat feature (requiring membership). Checking their chat feature, theres never more than 9 users chatting, and theyre all men grouped into 3 rooms. the women users column states no women chatting... kinda odd for a site with all these supermodel style women signing in and out all day and night long and urging you to meet them there just moments before.

The managament of xxx blackbook reviews profiles. Mine for example was there a week and had been censored. More of a chop and chuck job of sentences or just half words, leaving a pretty crappy illiterate script. I re-edited it and eventually removed everything about me from the profile. Even with nothing there, I still received the same amount of [ROBOT] interests with mail titles about loving what i had to say. I ended up leaving a paragraph of basically everything here for the management to look at the next time they came into my profile. It took 1 day and they deleted the account and locked my IP out of their site. With millions of users, how do they find the time to police mine twice just a couple days apart? simple, they dont have to police their own [ROBOT] profiles.

Thats what I have to say about thier site. I am sure there are real people on that site, most wont have pictures and the ones that do are going to be average joe and a few jane doe without paid memberships. Its all about your personal standards and expectations I guess. If you're interested in average joe or jane, then why aren't you picking them up a dime a dozen in real life in your own neighborhood? If you're looking for someone that isn't like those in your area, most likely you wont find that on this site.

Not true for men.

AUTHOR: zep63 - ()

I do not dispute you're claim but XXX Black book does not want to bite the hand,or credit card,that feeds.I understand like most sites such as this there is a high ratio of male to female members but when you have the same female ask you why you will not reply to her 4 or more times something is up.I know every testimonial that a male has given a female are all at least 6 months old and customer support is non existent.I know my e-mail settings are correct and the first 3 days I was notified by e-mail of every flirt,message,or contact but now recieve nothing even though my account is active and these are not going to my spam folder.I have been there 6 days and have gotten at least 4 multiple mails from the same females asking why I don't reply but do every time plus the instant message feature does not work and just for kicks I tried the cam feature and had the same results.I mean honestly if they scam females they would have no site but they are aware of this and the review given that you dispute is dead on accurate.I mean if you use logic it is pretty clear because how many adult dating sites are located in the U.S. and have you ever seen one that has a Pay-Pal button for billing? I know the other scam is to ask for you're credit card for age verification and is against federal law because a credit carid is not a valid form of identification and just a ploy to steal money from your credit card.I was a SSgt in the Marine Corps for 12 years and have a college degre and have seen plenty of scam dating and hook-up sites but this is the worst by far however these companies don't fall under U.S. jurisdiction but I will see if Interpol can do anything but am not holding my breath.Peace:~)

Don't waste your hard earned money on these so called "Adult dating sites"

AUTHOR: Mark - (U.S.A.)

These people who think they can fool you into believing that if you pay $29.95 to join their phony "Adult dating site", you WILL REALLY HOOK UP with somebody in no time!. Have joined two different ones in the last five months, 1st one was Amateur Match, 2nd one was Yahoo Personals. I discovered that the same thing was taking place at each one. NOTHING AT ALL BUT A SCAM TAKING PLACE!!!. You send you're money in, create a profile, post a picture of yourself,and nothing but sit back, and wait for all the girls to contact you, right?. WRONG!!. First you get a "Phony", or as i like to call it, a computer generated response, along with a picture of a very attractive woman, stating that she is interested in you. Wow!, she is GORGIOUS!. So i would send a "Flirt", and wait, and wait, and wait.... NOTHING-- How about an E-mail?, well maybe a "Response", but something like: Hello there, my dogs just got out of the house, i will chat with you later. - Uh, hi there, just got some new furniture in my house today, talk with you soon.- Hello there, how are you?, my landlord is a real prick- will get back to you tommorrow. It is my belief that the picture you see, is of course a REAL PICTURE, but not who is really "Chatting" with you. They could easily obtain a very attractive photo of a woman VERY EASILY,and then start typing all kinds of things to you, "I'm interested in you", saw you're profile, and really liked it, want to get to know more about you, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH!. Do you want to exchange phone numbers?, NO, just chat rooms or Instant messanger. What about E-mails?, oh, they just never respond. The instant messanger was the biggest joke of all. 12 of 13 all tell me that they are from the U.S., but currently in NIGERIA!. 1 told me that she was from my hometown, but now currently in New Zealand!. And that she was stuck in a hotel, and couldn't leave because she had a dispute with the hotel, and could'nt leave until she "squared up" with them. Then she told me that she needed my help with some money, so she could get out!. Another one sent me some attrative photo of "Herself", claimed to once live in California, but now residing in Nigeria. "She" (I doubt it was really her) said all kinds of things to me, i want to get married, come to you in you're State, BUT!, YOU GUESSED IT, i don't have money right now, even though "She" told me that she had recieved some kind of Nurse training. If you could send me money to fly to you, then we could meet and be married, and BLAH, BLAH, BLAH!!! HA HA HA HA!!!. Boy these IDIOTS really think they are so clever!!. And when you finally get sick of all of it, and tell them they are fake or phony, they all curse you, tell you off,tell YOU are PHONY!! The ONLY dating sites that i have EVER heard anything GOOD about are E-harmony,(because my former Boss met someone on there, and got married a short time later), and maybe matchdotcom.-- DO YOURSELF A FAVOR, do some RESEARCH on a dating site before joining, or if you have a friend, or know someone who has joined one of these sites, ASK THEM ALL KINDS OF QUESTIONS, or, even better, call the Better Business Bureau- You will be glad that you didn't get SUCKERED out of you're hard earned money!.

XXXBlackBook

AUTHOR: Lukas21 - (Canada)

I too have had trouble in the past with so called "Adult Dating" sites.... however I have not had these issues with XXXBlackBook. I sent a few messages with no reply but within a few weeks I did make some contact and was able to seal the deal a few times - I now use the site often.. probably to often...lol

Maybe back in 08' there were some issues but so far I had the most success with XXXBlackBook...

Hope this helps!
