Dating Websites: The Biggest Scam on the Internet?

Be Cool & Share!FacebookTwitterLinkedInGoogle+Reddit

The Internet is the new social medium, the place where people can get together to chat with friends and meet new people. This technological revolution is so huge, that unfortunately it brings in the scammers too, people who just want to rip you off and steal your money.

One of the biggest dating sites on the Internet is just such a scam organization in my opinion. Here’s how it works.

The oldest trick in the book is  for a guy to sign up for a free account, and then a few minutes to a day later he has a “smile” from – you guessed it – the most beautiful woman he has ever seen in his life. Her job is “full time model”.

Yea right. And my name’s Brad Pitt.

The problem is that a lot of people are that stupid. They actually believe that a 24 year old model, one of the most beautiful girls in the world, would actually be interested in an overweight, greying, middle-aged social misfit who couldn’t attract a squirrel at a chestnut roasting.
So all hot and exited, the victim tries to send an email to his new found Goddess. Oops. Sorry. Can’t send any emails until you pay the membership fee.
Not wanting to miss this opportunity of a lifetime, the idiot fumbles for his wallet, breathless, sweat beading on his upper lip, rips out his credit card and pays the fraudulent scammers. What he doesn’t realize is that this lady is not really on the market for middle-aged desperadoes. She’s not on the market at all. She probably already has a gorgeous 25 year old model who she dances with till 5:00am in the morning at nightclubs on coke and ecstasy. She is a fake.

She’s a lure, a decoy, a  piece of cheese in the mousetrap that just shut on the poor old fool. Now in some countries this is illegal – a fraudulent crime, possibly a felony, which would subject the business to legal punishment.

Unfortunately, most of the beautiful young girls in the world are from poor countries with few laws where this is probably not punishable. And even if it is punishable, the company will pay off a few high ranking officials and the matter will be settled. Swept under the rug. What a pity.
How do I know this company is a scam? I opened an account, and the next day had a “smile” in my inbox from the most beautiful woman I had ever seen in my life. The “Full-time Model”. Suspecting a loser like me couldn’t be that lucky, I opened another account under a different username.

Can you guess what happened? The same georgeous woman sent me a smile, this time about 5 minutes after I had opened the account. Can you say scam?
Here are the names of the dating websites associated with this company. I believe they are scammers out to steal your money, and I am filing reports with every consumer protection agency I can. If you feel you have been scammed by one of these services, don’t hesitate to contact the authorities. The Better Business Bureau. The Consumer Protection Agency. The Attorney General’s office. Even the newspapers. Maybe they will pick up the story.

Do some research in the country of the dating site that ripped you off. File a complaint with an agency that may be able to help you, and stop these scammers from stealing other people’s money.

Here is a list of all the dating websites. Leave your comments below and tell your story. The more people who hear about this the fewer people will get ripped off.

TAKE ACTION against these scammers. The more people who file complaints the more chance some lame governmental agency somewhere may actually do something.

Leave your comments below and tell your story. Good luck, and stick with established dating sites that have a good reputation and have been around for years. There are a lot of them. You’ve been warned.

Update on I signed up for an account and the next day had about six messages in my inbox. Every girl was 22 years old. Every girl was sensationally beautiful with professionally produced photographs in very sexy bathing suits, etc. This has scam written all over it.

    An important aspect of the online dating scene is safety. My advice is to take it slow. Don't reveal personal information about yourself too soon. Take it one step at a time. It's always better to be safe than sorry.

    There is a site I have found where lots of singles go to make safe dating connections. The profiles are screened so you can be confident you are being introduced to a real person. In fact, the name of the site says it all, local singles connect. Go there and get started by filling out a free profile.

    Well one of the websites I had a bad experience with was eligible greeks (which ironically is being advertised on this page!). I had received all these nice emails from women near where I live and when I paid my membership in order to get contact them not only they stopped speaking to me, but they also blocked me when I asked why they wouldn't reply to my messages!

      The point of this article is to warn people that many dating websites are huge scams. Even dating websites that have big names and you would never expect to be unethical can engage in devious tactics to make more money.

      The oldest trick in the book is for fake women to write emails to guys enticing them to write back. If the guy has a free membership, usually he can't write back without paying a membership fee. He pays his membership fee with dick in hand, and shoots off an email with fantasies of Victoria's Secret models lounging in his mind. The photo of course is fake (even many real women will use an old, retouched photo that barely resembles them), and the "woman" is really Jake from Marketing.

      Of course "she" never writes back and you feel stupid, Don't get me wrong, there are some great dating sites out there, and I think they're a great way to meet people. Just have a healthy sense of skepticism when you join a site and the next day you have messages from 5 models in your inbox. Not.

      Thanks doctor dictionary. Does that mean when my wife says I have a large penis she is committing fraud? Or is it better to say "lie", "deception" or "total bs"?

    NO,, It will depend on the site but it will depends much on the user.

    • Webmind

      I agree, some sites are good and some scams. Everyone must be vigilant. But on a scam site, many innocent people get ripped off, hence the warning.

  • Brazilian woman

    Not all dating sites..

    • Webmind

      I agree, not all dating sites are scams. There are some excellent ones. I met my wife on one, and if memory serves, even got laid once or twice. Damn, I guess you could say I got screwed after all.

      Hi Physiotherapy Courses, thanks for continuing to spam my website with your stupid, rude, invasive, irrelevant comments. Physiology is indeed an important part of dating, where male and female hormones intermingle in the heat of the passionate night. O the sweet scent of a woman!
