mate1.com Suckered and they have my credit card Internet
So I joined Mate1.com to see if I could talk to a few ladies. I didn't give it much thought until I received -3- messages from different women on my email address.
To be able to read said messages you MUST become a full member. Mate1 offers you a free trial. So I applied.
The first thing that I didn't like was the fact they asked for your credit card. Well I have a personal one I don't use for many things, and completed the necessary steps.
Once I did, the three messages where finally revealed in all their glory.
They where all correspondence resquests. Identical requests. That got me curious, so I went into the profiles. Two of the ladies had 1 line profiles, that just added flame to my thoughts of set-up. I verified the third one, and that one seemed genuine. It had a small paragraph, maybe 4 lines long, and seemed nice. So I thought, this MIGHT not be a scam.
Eitherway, I waited a day and logged on today. I had no replies from any of the ladies, so I went in to verify profiles again. I studied the pictures taken, ignoring the two I believed to be fake and studied the third one closely.
It was a pose. The entire picture was some sort of model POSING for a camera. She was looking off into the distance in a classic miss clairol body statement. That got me to look closer at the profile when I noticed the kicker. The profile had not height, or weight or anything on the relevant fields. Also, the profile description did NOT match the photo.
Boom, another set-up email, and I fell for it.
I instantly canceled my subscription as I was still on the trial time, but I am very angry that people who tried to sucker me into giving them 50 dollars have my credit card information, my email (thank god I used the public one and junk mail wont be a factor), my name, everything.
I strongly suggest never using Mate1. Anyone who is willing to sucker you into a paying subscription is probably more than willing to do other unsavory actions with your private information.
