These scam artists don't even try to hide the fact that they're going to rob you! I was still working on the first sentence of my profile when my inbox started going off the hook with women claiming to have already seen it, along with the photo that I hadn't even submitted yet, lol! For real? To try and answer anyone back, which is nothing but a bunch of Hindus in a garage somewhere sending fake messages, they want your credit card information! Let's see how that works out. Once they get your money, all the messages stop, but the charges to your card don't. You can be a thief, and you can be stupid. You can't be both. These clowns think otherwise. Avoid them and stay safe!

If you're on this site for any length of time, you'll find that it's full of nothing but jealous, cutthroat people, all looking to move themselves to the front of the line at someone else's expense. Something that they probably aren't able to do anywhere else. Attention whores are what they're called. If the site makes money on it they don't care.

Credit card scammers. After you finish navigating the obnoxious questionnaire, you'll ask yourself why you even bothered. If you take a look at their terms of service, you'll see that they can't guarantee that you won't be contacted by 3rd parties, which means that you'll have jokers from the site emailing you with fake messages. They'll also claim that from "time to time", they use "test" profiles to monitor site activity and create interest, which means that you're seeing fake profiles and pictures, many of them stolen from Facebook, Tumbler, or porn websites. Others are private scammers looking to draw you off the site to hotels, apartments, or housing project addresses. One message came from a truck stop. Yeah, ok. Many aren't just interested in dates. A surprising number are seeking "arrangements", chronic divorcees, college girls "working" their way through school, druggies looking for pals to get up with, girls looking for sugardaddies, Russian and Nigerian scammers looking for a cheap ride into the U.S., and men and women wanting "pay for play" hookups. These sites all have the same thing in common. They're all looking for the same thing, and guess what it is. YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION! They'll sign you up for a trial membership, usually 1-3 days. Once that membership times out, they'll auto-upgrade you to a full paid account, and that's when they robbed me for close to 200$. Then they register you with other scam sites without you knowing it. Because I wasn't paying attention to the warning signs, they were charging me for 3 different sites before I knew what was happening. By the time I realized that all those pictures and profiles couldn't possibly be real, the damage was already done. I needed to cancel my credit card and close my checking account to get rid of the thieves. The first clue that something isn't right, is your email inbox. Dozens of people claiming to have seen your profile and liked it, and you haven't even finished it or posted anything yet! Many of the messages that you get from them are fake, or come from towns that dont exist. Either that or the names of the towns are spelled wrong or the town is too small to have that many people signed up. I was emailed by a woman using the name of the town of Centralia, Pennsylvania, which was destroyed by a coal mine fire in the 1980s! Another email, supposedly from Ventura Beach, California, had the Eiffel Tower in the picture! One of the few people to contact me that claimed to be from my same city didnt even know the name of the main street and had Yosemite Park in their profile picture. Just how dumb do they think people are? It won't matter, because they have your money, and have a nice day trying to get a refund, and they'll take the scenic route to giving it back, and that's if you get anything at all. You can try contacting their customer service. Good luck with that even if it's in English. So if you take one thing away from this, it should be to not make the same mistakes that I did, and just AVOID ALL THESE SCAM ARTISTS AND SITES!

Who do these clowns think they're trying to fool? If you don't pay, you're not going to talk to anyone. If you do pay, you'll have jokers from the site contacting you with fake messages. They'll also have your credit card information, which if you don't stop them, they'll use to start charging you for other scam sites. I was being charged for 3 different sites and robbed for over 150$ before I knew what was going on! The best possible information that I can give to the reader, is to not listen to all of these fake, positive 5 star reviews, and use extreme caution on all of these sites.

That's what happens when you join any site like this. Nobody ever claims ownership of them. That's because they're all run by the same scam artists, and they're all after the same thing. That's right. Your credit card information. Once your trial membership times out, they'll auto upgrade you to a full paid account without you knowing it, and grab your ankles for what's next. Then they'll start charging your credit card for other scam sites. Because I failed to read these negative reviews, they were charging me for 3 different sites before I could stop them. By the time I realized that all these pictures and profiles couldn't possibly be real, I was robbed for over 150$! Had to cancel my credit card and close my checking account to get rid of these clowns. The first clue that something was wrong, was my email inbox. 23 seconds after I registered, for the trial membership, spam emails started coming in from all directions of the wind, from women looking to connect. 23 seconds! My toilet doesn't flush that fast! Within the hour, there were 51 spam emails from women who had seen my profile and thought I looked nice, but guess what? I hadn't even posted anything yet. I learned too late that they use fake profiles and pictures, photoshopped or stolen from Facebook, Tumbler, or porn websites. Then they'll have jokers from the site contacting you with fake messages. Most of the messages come from towns that don't exist. If they do, the names are spelled wrong or there can't possibly be that many people signed up. One of the messages came from someone using the name of a town that was destroyed by a coal mine fire in the 1980's! Another one, supposedly from Ventura Beach, California, had the Eiffel tower in the picture! If you're not an idiot, they think you're one. In many of the messages, they'll say" good morning" at 9pm, which means that the message is fake and being sent from a different country or time zone. Most of these sites have offshore or overseas addresses such as Malta, Antigua, Cyprus, Antilles, London, Nigeria. That's where your credit card information is going when you register. Good luck with that. By not claiming ownership, they can control the site domain to allow fake positive reviews to get posted by scammers working for them, because it helps pull in suckers like me. Not too many people, on the other hand would admit to being robbed by one of these sites if they weren't. Once they have your money, all the messages stop. They make recurring charges to your credit card and if you don't know it, they can add up fast. Their customer service is a waste of time, and have a nice day trying to get a refund from them because they'll take the scenic route to giving your money back if you get anything at all. Guard yourself against scams like this because they're out there everywhere and this one's no exception. For your own safety, it's best to avoid being a victim to these thieves because the Cougar Life you're looking for is more like a slow death to your wallet.

Don't fall for this hook, line, and sinker! Yes, it's me again. I'm well known by now as someone who was robbed by one of these sites. The main thing that they all have in common is that your credit card information is what they're after. Most of that is going offshore somewhere, and in many cases, overseas. Mine was going to Cyprus. Once your trial membership times out, they'll auto-upgrade you to a full paid account without you knowing it. Then they register you for other scam sites and start charging your credit card for them. Fake profiles. Fake pictures. Mostly stolen from Facebook, Tumbler, or porn websites. They suspend or keep womens' memberships pending and allow men to try and contact the fakes. Someone from the site then contacts you with a fake message. Before I could stop them, they were charging me for 3 different sites! Over 150$ in registration charges! Had to cancel my credit card and close my checking account to get rid of them and good luck with trying to get a refund from them. All because I didn't do my homework and READ THESE REVIEWS! This is where you, the reader comes in. Always do your homework before joining any of these sites. If you smell scam, it probably is one. Most people won't admit to being robbed by one of these sites because let's face it, it's like robbing a drug dealer. Who's going to admit to being taken while looking for a cheating wife? Read more about the Ashley Madison hack. There were supposedly only a few real women on the site and thousands of men. That should tell you everything you need to know. Is this site a scam? Keep your pants up and both eyes on your wallet. USE CAUTION ON ALL THESE SITES!

That's what they think you are when you sign up with them. Seemingly endless stupid questions about nothing that anyone would be looking for in a person. Men don't represent all of the problems here. Many of these women are trash, seeking arrangements, looking for sugardaddies, college students trying to ho ho ho their way through school, Nigerian scammers in search of unsuspecting victims, and drug addicts wanting a quick fix-up. Use extreme caution when using these sites. I've been messaged by some of these people looking to meet at hotels, housing project addresses, and truck stops. One wanted to meet at an adult book store. Good luck with that. Most of these sites are operated by the same scam artists, and they're all after the same thing. That's right. Your credit card information. After your trial membership times out, they'll register you for a full paid account without you knowing it, and check your pants because they're somewhere down around your ankles. Then, they start charging your credit card for other scam sites. Thanks to my own stupidity, they were charging me for 3 different sites before I could stop them. Had to cancel my credit card and close my checking account to get rid of them. By the time I realized that all these pictures and profiles couldn't possibly be real, l was robbed for over 150$. Most of them use contractors and 3rd party representatives which is a fancy term for fake and they even tell you that in their terms of service. Many of the messages come from towns that don't exist. If they do, the names are spelled wrong or there can't possibly be that many people signed up. One woman that was emailng me, was using the name of a town that was destroyed by a coal mine fire in the 1980's! Don't expect them to keep your search results local if you request it. I was messaged across country by someone in a profile, supposedly from California that had the Eiffel tower in the picture. Just how stupid do they think people are? Don't expect much help from their customer service and have a nice day trying to get a refund because they'll take the scenic route to giving your money back if you get anything at all. So if you're stuck on stupid, by all means, join any of these sites. If not, STAY AWAY FROM THEM! Ok

By now, most of you know me as being the victim of getting robbed by one of these sites. Unfortunately for me, I didn't do enough checking before I signed up. By the time I realized that all these pictures and profiles couldn't possibly be real, it was too late, as it could be for you if you're not following this. These are scam artists, and have a nice day trying to unload them once they get your credit card information. Take a good look at their terms of service and make sure your not standing on a bridge, because you'll want to jump off. They tell you directly that they use what is referred to as 3rd party representatives, which means that you're going to have idiots from the site contacting you and pretending to be the people you think you see in the profile pictures. Most of the pictures and profiles are photo shopped or stolen from Facebook or porn websites. Read all of their terms and conditions and then look down to see if your shoes are tied together, because that's what you'll feel like. They'll auto-upgrade you from a trial membership to a full, paid one, and then start charging your credit card for more scam sites. They were charging me for 3 different sites before I could stop them. Ultimately, I had to cancel my credit card and close my checking account to get rid of them. This site is no different when you register. Seconds after my information was sent, my email inbox was ready to fly. Dozens of women had viewed me! Too bad I hadn't given them a picture of myself yet or any profile info. Women contacting me from towns with the names spelled wrong. Who can't spell the name of their town? One was emailng me from a town that was destroyed by a coal mine fire in the 1980s! Some of the profile pictures make no sense. One supposedly from California, had the Eiffel tower in the picture. Another, reportedly one of my "local neighbors", had Yosemite Park in the background. Others are of dogs or animated characters. What kind of dopes do they think people are? What does it matter because all they want is to roll you for money. Notice the addresses of these clowns. Nigeria, Antigua, Malta, South Africa, Cyprus, Antilles, and they're going to try and match you up with someone from your own town? Good luck with that and guess where your credit card information is going when you register. Don't expect their customer service to be much help or even in your language, either. Keep your money because these sites all land in the same category. Thieves.

Almost all of these sites are scams, and this one's no exception. They bait and switch you into upgrading to a full paid membership, and then that's when you get robbed. Whomever these dopes are trying to fool when they say that this site is free to join is beyond me. After your trial membership expires, if you don't stop them, they"ll automatically start charging your credit card for a full one. Notice in their terms of service the hurdles that you have to jump over just to get rid of these scam artists once you've had enough of them. You'll also see that they use" 3rd party representatives", which means that you'll have clowns from the site contacting you and posing as someone you think you see in a profile. I was ripped off by one of these. They use fake profiles and photos stolen from Facebook or porn websites and think no one notices. A few seconds after I clicked the link to sign up, my email inbox was ready to hit the ceiling with messages from women ready to meet up. Half of the names of the towns where they were emailng from were spelled wrong. Who doesn't know how to spell where they're from? I was actually messaged on one of these sites by a woman claiming to be from a town that was nothing more than an abandoned interstate rest stop. One was using the name of a town that was destroyed by a coal mine fire in the 1980s! They use outside billing agencies to collect the money and do the dirty work for them. Their customer service passes the ball to them, claims not to know anything and is a basic waste of time. Go around looking at these sites and check out the addresses of them. Malta, Cyprus, Antilles, Nigeria, Antigua. That's where your credit card information's going when you register. Good luck with that. It doesn't matter, because once they get your money, all the messages stop. Then, they'll sign you up for other scam sites and charge your credit card for them. Hundreds of women constantly viewing your profile, but no one ever contacts you. Any messages or responses that you do get come from towns that don't exist or can't possibly have that many people signed up. Either that or the messages don't coincide with real time. They'll tell you that they're local and only 30 miles away and then say "good morning" at 3 pm, which means that the message is fake and being sent from a different time zone or country. You can also catch them by noting the backgrounds in the profiles. So called "recent" and "new" photos will have snow in the background, and the calendar page on the wall will say August. One, supposedly from California, had the Eiffel tower in the picture! What kind of idiots do they think people are? It makes no difference, because they already have your money and have a nice day trying to get it back. Steer clear of these jesters for your own safety, because the only thing they're trying to mingle with is your wallet.

If anyone knows what part of this is free, by all means, let me know. It's free to put your name in and that's about it, and then start asking for your credit card information. Right after I signed up, I started looking at my watch. 23 seconds. 16 matches in my zip code. I can't blow my nose that fast! Shortly after that, my email inbox was doing the Jane Fonda workout. 12 messages in less than an hour trying to upgrade me to a paid account and more matches in my zip code. The only problem is that my zip code is a post office box. Suddenly, all these girls are from the same one? When these clowns realized that it wasn't a delivery code, I started getting matches from all surrounding towns and postal codes. Most of the messages had the names of the towns spelled wrong. Who doesn't know how to spell where they live? Half of the pictures had things in the background that aren't local or anywhere in the area. Yosemite Park? Statue of liberty? Not in my neighborhood. It makes no difference because all they want is to shake you upside down for money and have a nice day trying to get rid of them, because they'll empty the excuse book on you as to why they can't unsubscribe you. It's best to steer around these dopes for your own good because the only thing they're trying match is your money with their pockets.

If you think that this site is legit, ask yourself how many girls could you walk up to on the street and ask to see their ass? The punches in the face you would get would far outweigh anything that you would see. Why would anyone expect to see hundreds and hundreds of them showing it here? These are the same ripoff artists that will tell you that Ashley Madison isn't a scam! How's that working out? Not too good. The hackers didn't take them down for no reason. They need to get working and clean the rest of these pigpens out! Most people won't admit to being robbed by one of these sites. I was one of them that was. Had to close my checking account, and cancel my credit card. By the time that I realized that all these profiles and pictures can't be real, it was too late. It isn't too late for you, if you pay attention. These are thieves. All these sites are linked. Check out the overseas addresses of them. Why are so many from Cypress? Malta? Nigeria? That's where your credit card information is going. Good luck with that. They sign you up with other scam sites and dip into your account to pay for them. Then it's up to you to get rid of them all. They were charging me for 3 sites before I could stop them. They use outside billing agencies as stooges to do their dirty work for them. If hacks take the site down, your name, checking, and credit information goes up for all to see. If you like being spoofed with fake profiles, stolen pictures, and endless email addresses that end with xyz, or fooled with bogus phone numbers and 3 word messages, these sites are for you. If not, take the advice and stay away.

I normally check these sites out now to try and expose what scams they are, after having been taken by one of them, but this was the first one that I clicked on by mistake and didn't even know that I was a supposed member. The first clue was the clogged inbox full of over 40 spam emails from women in my area who had seen the profile that I hadn't even posted yet, and wanted to hook up immediately. One was from a town that was destroyed by a coal mine fire over 20 years ago! How stupid do they think people are? I decided to try something and re-registered as a woman, looking for a man, and guess what? The inbox was ready to blast off again! What do they need 34.95 for? To contact you with fake profile pictures? When they do give you a private email address, it's a link to another scam site. Don't let these thieves even get a sniff of your credit card information. It's easy to fall victim to scam artists like these, but once you know how to guard yourself against them, they only get you once. Twice is your fault.

Sorry to crap on the party, but I had just barely finished filling out the registration form, and there were 51 spam emails in my dropbox from women who were supposedly interested in me, had seen my profile, and thought that I looked nice. The problem is that I hadn't posted a profile or picture yet. It's the same procedure as all the other scam sites. Nobody sees your real phone number. Nobody sees your real e-mail even if you want them to. How do you really know what they're doing or who it is contacting you? What girl do you know of that's going to message pictures of her ass to a total stranger? It doesn't matter because once they get your money, the messages all stop. Hackers need to take all these sites down. Don't say that you weren't warned.
