Exactly as the title says, I logged on as a free account and started looking around. As a free account, they will tell you when you've received messages but not allow you to read them or reply. After a couple of days and tons of messages I decided to try it out. I upgraded and immediately the messages stopped coming. I also responded to several of the messages I had received and never got a response again. It's pretty obvious this is a scam designed to entice people into giving their money. I sent them a message telling them I knew what they were up to and I wanted my account closed and money refunded. The closing of the account they did well enough but, big surprise, no refund was ever given. i hope that nobody ever pays to use this site again as they do not filter out old accounts and the accounts that are there are 90% fake anyway, probably made up by them to make themselves look good.
