Warning Signs: Spotting Scam/Fake/Escort Profiles On Hookup Sites
Unfortunately, one rule that holds true in almost all aspects of life holds true here, too.
If it’s too good to be true, it probably is.
The hottest girls in the world don’t usually wind up bored and on fling dating sites. That’s why you need to use the guide. No, those girls usually stick pretty close to the places they’ll be more appreciated, like EVERYWHERE. As we said before, there’s no shame in looking for what you’re going to get on dating sites, which is usually some strong sevens and the occasional eight and rare nine.
If you see a perfect 10 posting blowjob pics, it’s fake.
Sorry to say, but the perfect 10s of the world just don’t hang around hookup sites doing these kinds of things. That might be a real person, but if it is, it’s someone posting fake pictures. They’re definitely a scammer out to get your money.
Another easy scam to watch out for is The Traveler.
In this scam, the girl says that she’s really into you, and she’d love to rock your world with some serious loving…if ONLY she were closer to you! Then she’d really start doing some wild and crazy stuff with you, and you guys would have a really sexy happy ending…
Unfortunately, this is not to be. She’s just trying to get you to pay for her trip to come and see you—which is a trip she’ll never take, by the way. She’ll take the money and you’ll never hear from her again.
A super easy way to tell this is an extortion scam is that the girl talks about America a lot, and not in the sense of “I’m a down home country girl who loves America and my 12-gauge!”
If this girl talks about how much she’s heard about America, how much she loves America, and how much she wants to VISIT America (and you), it’s an extortion scam. These are actually more dangerous than the other scams like this; most of the time in these cases, the girls are answering to someone who’s forcing them to do things, and if they don’t bring back a certain amount of dupes, they’re in trouble.
(Note: this does not mean they’ll be grateful if you try to “save” them. Just don’t send money. Walk away.)
One more scam to watch for is the Easy Talker.
This is someone who is contacting you rather than the other way around, or responds very enthusiastically to your first message, telling you all about herself and that she definitely does want to have sex with you. We guarantee that you won’t come out of this one without hearing at least one request for money.
Lastly, beware the Perfect Photo.
A perfect photo SHOULD be something you can be proud of. Unfortunately, there’s no such thing in the world. In the online dating world, perfect photos are like an excessive amount of autotune in your first single—if there’s nothing to hide, why do you have to go to the trouble of covering it up with something so obvious?
If you’re okay with meeting a woman who’s 10 years older, 20 pounds heavier, and with a hell of a lot more cellulite, feel free to send a message to the lady with the photoshopped profile picture. Otherwise, you’re gonna give her a pass.
