Dating sites real or fake tarot dating com
I'll summarise the results of the fake profile first.
On 27 June 2014, I registered a fake profile, leaving all details unset other than name, age and profile description ("A Few Words About Yourself"), which I set (respectively) to "Michael Michaelson", 70, and "I'm just here to check whether this site is a scam. Notice that "Michael" explicitly requested only scammers to message him.
Within 24 hours, the letters began accumulating in "Michael's" inbox.
Again, most of the women in the photographs looked like professional models.
For some reason, the women started addressing their messages to "Not" rather than to "Michael", presumably because I had previously registered an account "Not Real", although I'm not sure how that account/name became linked to the "Michael Michaelson" account.Concerned that my friend was being scammed, I did some investigating, and came to the conclusion that yes, he was. Here, then, is my research, to warn those considering using against wasting their time and money.My investigations took two forms: direct investigation by registering a fake profile, and indirect investigation by scouring the net for positive/negative reviews.My suspicions were aroused by my friend's description of the site: drop-dead gorgeous women everywhere, constantly sending him letters and chat pop-up requests, yet for every letter read after a lady's first, he had to pay ten credits, and ten credits likewise to send a lady a reply letter - instant messaging chats cost one credit per minute after the first three (free) minutes.Credits could be bought at varying rates depending on how many you bought at a time, ranging from per ten credits to per ten credits.
To check that this wasn't some strange anomaly, on 5 July 2014 I created another fake account, "John Smith", aged 88 (the maximum age it is possible to set for men on asiandate.com), with profile description ("A Few Words About Yourself") set to "I am an old and decrepit man with terminal cancer and absolutely no money. As with "Michael"'s account, I provided no photographs.
