Part of locating adult online dating scams is trusting your intuition. If it looks like a rat and smells like a rat. I always recommend trying out a dating site for free for a bit until you’re comfortable enough to pay for it. Check out the profiles and get a good feel for the site. After doing so, determine if you think the site seems legit. In this article, I’m going to teach you certain obvious adult dating scams and how to spot them. Remember to always trust your instincts. If something looks fishy, it probably is.
Signs a Profile is Fake
Again, trust your instincts, but here are some signs that generally indicate a profile is fake. First off, if the profile is of a very attractive woman and there is no reference to anything local, it’s probably fake. Most people on dating sites make some sort of reference to a local hot spot in their profile. Not always, but most of the time. Of course, if the woman is fat and ugly and there’s no local references, we’re confident the profile is real. That’s because even the worst hookup sites aren’t dumb enough to populate their site with ugly women.
Yes, there are many attractive women that are real online. However, if you notice a profile picture that looks too good to be true, it probably is. Does the profile look like it was uploaded straight from Google Images? If so, it’s a fake. That’s where most scam sites get their photos from.
Sites That Are NOT Scams
We’ve put in the time and effort to research adult sites so we could locate the scams and the legit sites. While there are literally hundreds (if not thousands) of hookup sites, only 3 of them are legit. Those 3 sites are AdultFriendFinder.com, XXXMatch.com, and SexSearch.com. We are 100% certain that the profiles on those sites are real, their members are not attempting to scam us out of money, and you will have a legitimate shot at getting laid by an attractive woman.
We have chatted with and met many women on those 3 sites. There truly are tons of women on there looking to get laid. Even the women we were unable to successfully set up a date with, we are confident the messages we received from them were real.
The Most Harmful Adult Personals Scams
If you sign-up for a site that’s filled with fake profiles or very few local members at all, you’re out $40 (maybe less) and the time spent. Sure, no one wants to just throw away $40 and you can’t get the time spent back, but it’s not the end of the world. Imagine being scammed out of big bucks. Don’t think that will happen to you online? You don’t know that. It could happen to anyone.
There are many scammers on adult dating sites. They send false messages to men, appearing to be attractive women. How do they get your money? Sucker you into giving them money to travel to meet you. The general rule of thumb is…
NEVER PAY FOR THEIR TRAVEL EXPENSES!
It doesn’t matter how hot she is. She might not be real. You might actually be sending money to some dude that’s scamming you out of your money. It happens all the time. That doesn’t mean you can’t meet women that live far away. Heck, many guys actually prefer a long-distance hookup. But use your head. If she wants to come visit you, she can pay her own way. If she refuses, find a woman that isn’t a cheap bastard. You shouldn’t be going after gold diggers anyway.
These scammers are very good at what they do. They’re very persuasive and convincing. They might even give you a phone number to call and actual woman to make their scam seem legit. So you can never be 100% sure it is a scam. However, to be 100% sure you don’t get scammed, never pay for any travel expenses or send them money as a gift.
Avoiding adult dating scams is easy if you take the proper precautions. Look for all of the signs mentioned above. With rare exception, if the signs indicate it’s a scam, it probably is.
