I would love to hear people's stories on fake people on here. Omg I just can't Believe how many people on such a site like this are scammers. Make people give there drivers lisense to join then the scammers can't get on here. My account got hacked 3 times in 2 months. I was just curious on people stories. I had guys that wanted iTunes cards, guys that wanted me to open up a checking account so they could somehow put money in and then I would take it out and send it to them,another guy from the army wanted me to write the general to get him out of the service. And then two guys said there daughter was in the hospital and neede money. Omg!!!!

Beware of posers saying they are in the military using the chat site hangout wanting you send send cell phones or laptops also. Have had no luck on this site for two months found several married people also. I think all pictures shoudl be verified and that you shouldnt be able to view the site at all if you dont pay.

had once contacted me pretending to be in the US Army. Showing me his army ID which probably stolen from someone. I told him off, my ex husband used to be in the British army, so get lost scammers...

several recent scammers I came across are pretending to be soldiers.  Still in Kabul or other middle Eastern places, but will be home in three months.  They always have just one picture and very brief profile.  The good ones will communicate for about three weeks before asking for money to be wired to Ghana for a new iphone or lap top.  Most have been widowed, no children or child died young.

Quoting lovinglifeat56:

 Evidence how and what are you going to do there's a guy talking to me now wants money I would love to get these people !!!!


If you really want these people behind bars;

 

Consumer Fraud and Identity Theft 
Contact the Federal Trade Commission at 1-877-FTC-HELP1-877-ID-THEFT, or online at www.ftc.gov.

 

General Fraud and Other Criminal Matters
Contact the FBI at (202) 324-3000, or online at www.fbi.gov or https://tips.fbi.gov.

 

Mail Fraud and Lottery/Sweepstakes Fraud
Contact the U.S. Postal Inspection Service at 1-800-372-8347, or online at https://postalinspectors.uspis.gov.
 

Or simply stop the conversation with such people.

 

when you say talking you, you mean by voice or via text. My guess text.

 

if anyone ever tells you they can't talk due to x y z reasons and can only text guaranteed a scammer. Always call the number you will hear the following message, the text subscriber you called its unable to answer the call at this moment." Only scammers have a text number phone not normal people.

 

NEVER EVER give your real phone number. I am assuming as per my previous advice you got yourself a google voice number already. If not young lady do it now.

yes I have been hit up on a few as well.. but there is a'pattern to the scammers.
usually they are European.
1 gorgeous photo
widowed with one child.
from LA.
they use "dear" and sweet talk you to the moon to get you hooked.
just a few guides to keep it real


Just flip the sexes and you have the female version.  Not always widowed.  Sometimes single with sick mom.  Same pattern though.  In two short weeks you are in full blown honey, sweetheart and love as forms of greeting and closing your notes and texts.

Yes the scammers are a real problem on here. If they ask for I tune cards, for you to create a profle acct and fpr you to pay for it or any money sorry to say but the DEFINATELY are a scammer most likely from a back room in Ghanna somewhere...its sad, sick, mean and ugly they would use and treat us this way....

When my profile page got hacked on here 3 times and I had to prove who I was to MM so I had to send them a photo ID I emailed them my drivers liscense to prove who i was. So in order to join this site u should have to show a photo ID since online dating scams are a billon dollar industry!!!!! Serious stuff !!

apparently someone thinks knowing UP addresses is novel for a woman! A tad offensive. TCP/IP, is neither new nor exceptionally techy, just let's us "talk" to each other...also helps leave digital footprint to track scammers or the boys for their ghost accounts. Definitely, stay local and legit!

IP addresses can be checked out unfortunately some of these people are good and one ip address can ping thru another 15 to 20 hot spots and addresses so tracing it back is difficult. you have to look in the header of the email the whole thing.

Quoting Giffypat31:

Has this site ever worked for anyone?I have to pay so much money to become a premium member!I already have 6 messages that I can't open unless I'm a certified member!I'm really curious.Someone help!😊


Put as first line on your "about me" that you can only receive emails not messages.  If you have already done so, then that is the best you can do. 

 

You can receive winks, but won’t be able to do much with them.except wink back.  Still it might prompt a gentleman to become a premium member. 

 

A wink from a premium member?  Wink back and they may then email you.  Some folks are way too timid.  They want assurance that you are interested.     

 

The choice of winks non premium members are given are dismal.  The simple, “I am interested in you.” is not available.
