Our Review of FlirtLocal
So what exactly is going on here? This website operates in the same fraudulent fashion that other sites from the same dating company uses. The fraud in this particular case is that these women are not real people looking to meet you for a date or anything more than that.
It may come as a shock to you however this website along with countless others are involved in the fabrication of fraudulent fake female profiles. The reason they create fake dating profiles is a two-fold answer. The first reason they create fake profiles is that Flirt Local does not have enough real women using it.
No man is going to join a dating site if there are 99 men for every women on the site. This is the exact problem that this dating service faces. Their solution to this problem is to start lying and deceiving their users by posting phony female profiles. The second reason for the phony women is to lure men into trying to contact these women at which time they are meant with "Upgrade to message" where you need to buy a membership alert before they can communicate with any girls on the site.
The evidence below shows just a small sample of the phony girls on the site. Do you really think that women like this need to be on a hook up site to meet men willing to have sex with them? Like we mentioned above we received over emails, to be exact from women on FlirtLocal.
The problem is that the emails are all fake! When we first signed up last year we started getting emails within mere minutes. This scenario happened over and over getting emails from hot looking girls. The emails poured in even though the profile we created for this investigation was empty. No photos were uploaded to our profile and we didn't put any info in our profile. Why then are these girls contacting us? First off the girls are not real as discussed in the previous paragraph.
The second reason that we are getting all these emails is because when we tried to respond to the emails we received the "Upgrade to message" alert pop up.
That is the main reason they send phone emails to members of their service. Sometimes the scam is hiding in plain view and it's as easy as reading the terms and conditions section I6 of the site to see what the web site is up to. Some of the things they admit to doing are truly unbelievable but they are true since they are directly located on the site's terms and conditions. FlirtLocal discusses in detail exactly how they run their business, this includes how they use fake profiles, fake emails and how they deceive people.
This is a irrefutable evidence that cannot be denied. The first thing they admit to doing is posting fictitious profiles. So what this means as I mentioned above in previous paragraphs is that the actually create fake dating profiles that have photographs of variouswoman and all types of personal information that are completely false.
They also admit to "generating or responding to communications by means of automated programs". This means that they actually send and reply to emails using automated computer software programs that are created specifically to make it appear as if you are receiving emails from real women. However in reality you're receiving emails from computer software programs and not real people.
They even admit to employing people to chat with you and basically pretend to be interested in you to entice you into upgrade. It's amazing that they talk about this on their site and it's basically hiding in plain view. This site use every tactic in the book to trick you into paying for a membership.
Sadly your chance of meeting legitimate women on this site are very minimal. With all the corroborating evidence there really is no reason to register as a member on FlirtLocal. I even asked all of them after awhile if they were members of just bogus profiles.
The profiles also auto send to your viewed box if you view them. Every so called woman I talk with on flirt local wants you to send them money by Western union or money gram to help with what ever. A total cash scam. I too am a standard free member and have receive numerous emails, and emailed site asking how many were nonfictious-never received a reply.
Got one email from a citymail. Give your money to a bum for a bottle of boose and it will be better spent. I was sucked in on a couple of these sites. Each site had one supposed girl interested to hookup. They all gave me an e-mail address to write them. I get aresponse from all of them, and they all said baasically the same thing. They all agve me a link to where their personal infgo was supposed to be. They all took me to a site called LocalMilfAffairs.
I turned off auto billing on all of them. They were all from that Guernsey address. Now Im brginnig to wonder about: I went to this sit in search of fun…before buying a membership l would get two pr three flirts a day that some hot chick wanted to hook up…the very day l joined the flirts stoped….
The flirts are all automated through computer software of course just to lure you into buying a membership. I just told bank I didn't make the charge. Why take a chance. I had my money back in my acct 10 minut s later.
I am sure if they get your money. I figured it out real quick, but not before they scammed me. Please potential buyer's do not bite!!! First, contact your bank and report the fraudulent activity. They will immediately cancel the card and reimburse the amount of money lost. They will open an investigation to determine if you are trying to defraud them.
In the same process they will investigate the perpetrators and, if unlawful activity is identified, they will prosecute to the fullest. Understand that this latter part rarely occurs. For the most part the crooks are not apprehended. But if by chance they happen to detain one it is a happy day. Firt off, I thought the site might be fair dinkum, but now I know it is a scam — I've been thinking about it and I wondered at one stage if it was a front for a police operation, but I suppose not — if the police contact me, I will get back here with an update of what went down.
I do suggest to everyone that they view all dating sites which ask for money as a scam — the only probable safe ones, are the free ones, which connect like minded people together, without a price involved. Never, never spend money — but if you do, never with your Mastercard or Visa, do it through PayPal or a similar payment option which keeps your Banking details private to you. If you paid out and want the money back, go through your bank. You can stop automatic payments from there and if the money taken was fraudulent, you might be able to claw it back, via your bank, because you have been scammed and like someone said, these girls are simply too beautiful, to not be getting dates and so on, to need to make contact with you or me — we get the not so beautiful ones, and you see plenty of them in various shapes and sizes around shopping centres and in the industrial hub of the city where you live……….
As a male, I found with online dating sites in Aussie, I was getting 2 to 3 responses to my profile each week, one or two, I had a look at in person, but the women concerned put pix of themselves when they were years younger and they did not look at all like their pix when I met them — if they were dishonest from the outset, what hopes then of a truthful relationship with me — no thanks.
If you do make a date, watch her eyes, if they are everywhere around where you meet and not on you — she is not interested in you and I recommend you don't touch her with a barge pole. My female companion, who I eventually met, did not post her picture and said she had lost 40kg, which I thought meant that she would be skinny, so I was floored when this huge woman got out of her SUV — I said from the outset I was not interested in her physically and we have agreed that I will look online for the occasional sex date, however, that said, in all other ways she was ideal and after 2 days in my home, in one of my spare bedrooms we don't have sex shudder and she has her own bedroom and I have mine, I asked her to move in with me, which she eventually did and I am now so happy with my life and with her — so "if" you eventually meet someone, be upfront with your expectations and don't knock her back if sex is going to be an issue, you can always punt around to try and get that elsewhere — a really good friend of the opposite sex if that is how you swing and company, is paramount, especially as you get older, instead of remaining single and hellishly lonely.
My friend was flooded with men looking for company and sex referred to her from the dating site — she had hundreds to choose from whereas, as I mentioned earlier, I only got 2 or 3 replies each week. It made no sense to me at the time, but now it does — these dating sites get loads of men who sign up, but very few women and since only the woman knows how many contacts she gets and never us men I would say the chances of actually making a connection through online dating with a woman is remote, even when the dating site is kosher.
Few women, loads of men. The logo includes a heart and a target. It seemed innocent enough. That is, until I looked a little bit closer for our Flirt Local review. On the front page of the site there is, of course, a parade of profiles. They feature photos of beautiful women in cleavage-baring selfies. There are no pictures of women hiking up a mountain, or posing with their bestie in their graduation gown.
None of this is unusual, we have tested out and reviewed a huge number of sites for our annual review of the best cougar dating sites so we have been around the block. Suddenly, I saw the other side of Localflirt. There are highly explicit photos for nearly every profile. All of the photos are just meant to grab your attention and rope you into a scam run by an overseas company. I did some investigation into the site and the company that runs it, so you can read all about the nitty-gritty here without visiting the scammy site yourself.
All you need is an email address, a date of birth, and a hand to navigate your cursor. I tried to write back: This is where I hit their paywall. Of course, they wait until you are ready to chat with a hot, half-naked woman before they say anything about payment.
That seems to be the sites whole strategy, throw in some bait, and wait from the fish to bite. Once they have you roped into a chat, they ask for your credit card info. The messages I got seemed to all be from fake profiles. These fictitious profiles have been created by the staff of Flirt Local.
They create fake profiles that make it appear as if their site has thousands of attractive looking girls on it. Of course this is completely false and used as a gimmick to get you to buy a membership to communicate with these women. They also pay people to chat with you. These employees of the site are used to chat with you and string you along, to get you to buy a membership. Once again if you want to communicate with anyone on the site you need to have a paid monthly membership.
And another popular con they use is sending fake emails and fake messages to people on the site. Once again this is using the same fashion as the chat messages. If you try to email these women back that have emailed you then you need to upgrade.
We think it's important to back up our allegations with real facts.
