I use my own mail server for my email account, and I use my own domain. When I tried to sign up for citysex.com, my email address didn't approve. Apparently I didn't write it correct. But I double-checked, and I did write it correct. There email address was correct to the appropriate RFC's, and it existed and resolved.
I then tried to find a support for the site, to address this signup problem. I didn't find a support. But in the Terms and conditions page I found the email to Nautell Capital Ltd, firstname.lastname@example.org. So I sent my support request there. The email was rejected by their spam filter through Microsoft Forefront, which is an IP address blacklist. I then wrote to Microsoft, and got my dynamic IP address delisted. Then Nautell Capital began receiving my emails. They replied from email@example.com. Is "cs" abriviation for "customer support"?
I do what I use to do. I gave them relevant debugging information, in hope to solve the signup problem. I explained the delisting at Forefront, and wanted to solve the signup.
The first reply was this:
"We received your email but are unable to process your request with the information you provided. Our records indicate that we do not have a profile under the email address you wrote to us from. Please respond and provide us with the email address or member id pertaining to your profile. We will be happy to comply with your request."
Obviously I couldn't provide a member id as the problem was at the signup stage. The second reply was this:
"It appears you need technical support. For technical assistance with your account please contact us directly at 877-690-6227 and we'll be happy to reactivate your username."
To emphasize, "...and we'll be happy to reactivate your username". I had no username, so there was no username to reactivate! I tried once again. This time I wrote more about how the IP blocklist at Forefront work, and how the delisting accured. I suggested that maybe their server had problems adopting to their third party spam philter.
This time they replied short:
"Thank you for your email. If you need further assistance, you will need to call us directly.
If you have any questions you may contact customer service at 1-877-690-6227. Our call center is open daily, 8:00AM-5:30PM Pacific Time. We appreciate your interest in our website."
I was amazed. "If you need assistance"? Is this the signup support they give? Till then they never replied to the actual issue, so I saw no point in calling them. To be honest, it smelled as a phishing attempt, which was the reason I didn't make the call.
Some days later I read this blog post by Paul Tyma (a developer who have worked at Google, and the entrepeneur of mailinator.com), http://mailinator.blogspot.com/2011/05/how-to-get-gmailcom-banned-not-that-i.html. mailinator.com is a free disposable email site. He addressed something interesting, that the majority in the internet community do *not* block the email domains for their disposable email service, because such blocking don't solve most of abuses on internet. My thought was then, why did citysex.com not reply to the signup problem? How do they solve abuse this way, given the fact that Forefront delisted my (dynamic) IP address?
Later the same day I read spams on my email account. I had received many spams with links to citysex.com. I thought, maybe do they send alot of spam themselves. Can the issue be that they do abuse alot systems themselves, and therefore have alot expert knowledge about how to abuse systems. Somehow, I don't know how to explain my thought.
Next, I googled "citysex spam". Aha, it was worse than I thought. The site citysex.com is fraud. The previous reviews on sitejabber makes sence. So this was the reason there was no support page at citysex.com, the reason for the very strange replies, and the reason http://nautellcapitalltd.com didn't exist. nautellcapitalltd.com is solely an email domain. http://nautellcapitalltd.co.uk and http://nautellcapitalltd.com.au do exist, but they're not doing any service near dating or sex.
So this is my story.
TOTALLY BOGUS SITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I get MANY false profiles invites every single day. I send to admin and they act like they don't know what I'm talking about. I cancelled account due to it and the spam keeps coming. This site is a nightmare, period.
This site is a total scam from the start. Beware after you cancel you might see small charges appear on the credit card you used to sign up with, for me it was a 10.20 charge from some other site which I found quite easily by checking the statement. They were caught because this is the only site I used that credit card on and my information was then used by another site to make a fraud purchase. you call and some Indian speaking woman with what sounds like kids in the background vaguely answers your questions. BEWARE..fraud and they will give out your credit card info...so small "under the radar" charges appear at random.
I receive at least 20 spam bot emails every day to all three of my yahoo email accounts from citysex.com. Every email provides a link to unsubscribe from the profile of the spam bot who sent it but once this site has your email address you soon get non stop emails from other spam bot profiles. Avoid them at all cost!
As soon as you sign up for this 'free' site, you'll immediately see two charges pop up in your account:
Achweblog.com PENDING ($2.97)
Achweblog.com PENDING ($59.99)
Then, you are allowed access to chat and email with paid chatters and automatic chat bots who use model photos as theirs and who, are in no way, real people!!
This is the kind of scam site that, as soon as a few state's Attorney's General file a class action suit against them, they go out of business and vanish.
So, guys, if you enjoy emailing and chatting with fat, balding East European men who are posing as hot local girls, then go right ahead and don't learn from how I was scammed!
I just read through their TOS and found they 'employ' love stars' to stimulate site activity. Basically, they identify them as bots, fake users, etc. So, they want me to pay money to be lied to? Ha! I could have just stayed married or meet a woman online at most REAL sites for free... LOL :p
This again is a swizz. I keep getting spam emails saying so and so wants to meet or is local to me or has uploaded a pic or has added me to favorites the list is endless. I have not been stupid enough to sign up as these sites are just out to make quick bucks for no return. AVOID!!!! AVOID!!! AVOID!!!!
The blurb on their introductory pages is this;
Is it really 100% free? Absolutely! CitySex has always been 100% FREE to use! You get unrestricted access to search, browse, email, and chat with our members as soon as you sign up.
It and anything else claimed on this web site is bull. They are just scammers. If you're stupid give them your money. The so called girls are not real and they are liars especially when they claim to come from my home town (a very very small town where I would know if they were around).
Best idea is to set up your profile with warnings about how it is a scam site.
Its garbage, No real people its all non-personal bots trying to get you to bye memberships. Please do not waste your time or money.
if you can call it adult dating site seems to be mostly bots trying to sell you web cam porno sites stay away
