Ripoffs dating and personals
But the site is forthright about the fact that it does not conduct background checks, Traub said.It also attempts to educate its subscribers by plastering the site with cautions like "don't wire money to anyone" and "once you go off-site, can no longer monitor the match," he said.
As with any site you have to have a good attitude and be willing to put time and effort in contacting people and yes there are many fake profiles.I am going to repeat the "good attitude" and "time and effort." All the men that I met and hooked up with 1) didn't assume that I was a fake profile and sent a nice first message-- not a flirt or one line and 2) had a complete profile themselves, with well-written paragraphs, pictures (body, face as well as equipment) and testimonials which AFF has and 3) were prompt about meeting, calling or video chatting with no run around. ALL sex dating sites are scams, usually run from America. If you want to meet a partner stay away from any site that offers members wanting just sex. Guys/Girls if its too good to be true ITS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, no woman/guy with half a brain would fall for that, I guess I have less than half a brain since I decided to spend the full 2.99 for a 3 day membership at , I quickly realized the answers were computer generated responses to my questions LOL - I should know better!!!!to make matters worse try cancelling the repeat charges in the small print!!!!Anything that looks too good to be true probably is.Please keep in mind that the men out-number the females by a factor of 10.These sites, along with dozens of other smaller ones, allow you to post a profile of yourself and view the profiles of others.
There is no attempt to verify the information someone posts -- something the sites are generally upfront about.
Many haven't been on the dating scene for decades and, feeling lonely and vulnerable, turn to their nearest computer for help.
What they find is a plethora of online dating sites that promise romance, true love and fun.
Is it a case of looking for love in all of the wrong places, or just a few bad apples in an otherwise happy bushel?
Truth is, many boomers often reach their 50s and older and find themselves uncoupled, either through death or divorce; they don't know where to turn.
And there is a class action lawsuit pending in the U. District Court that claims more than 60 percent of the profiles on are fraudulent -- something spokesman Matthew Traub calls an "unfounded allegation in a money-seeking litigation." Then there is another, perhaps darker, side to the consumer complaints: People reporting that they were bilked out of money by those they connected with through an online dating site.
