Hello my pets. If you’ve ever been involved in the world of online affair dating then you’ve heard about the recent rash of scams which has plagued affair websites and the internet dating scene at large. Unscrupulous con men are stealing images from all over the net and then setting up sock puppet accounts to lure unsuspecting fling and affair daters into paying for what ostensibly is a dating service.
Affair Scams: How they lure you into paying
On the surface, scam sites will look identical to the real thing. You will have search options, personal messaging, and will be able to interact with other users. In reality, the users are either employees or bots. You will usually be able to send one message for free. Other users on the site will send you “winks”, “flirts”, or some other form of generic attention. In some cases you will get automated responses to messages you sent. The trick is get you to pay for the premium service by making you think there’s someone interested in having an affair with you. Now in some instances, sites will go so far as to pay employees to actually interact with you to accomplish the same thing.
Affair Scams: What they do with your credit card information
Most affair website scams are merely portals to porn sites and cam girls. They’ll let you think you’re paying for a service where you’re going to be chatting up other married men or women who are in roughly the same boat you are. They will use images they stole from other websites around the web. But there won’t be very many, if any, real people behind the images. Once they have your credit card information, they’ll charge you for access to porn or cam girls and are legally entitled to do so as long as it’s buried somewhere in the fine print. The other part of that makes that work? Most people who are trying to have an affair are not going to be interested in filing a lawsuit for fraud because that would mean exposing their intentions to their spouse. So they eat the bill and move on. On a long enough time scale, and after having made several thousand dollars off a fraudulent business model, they develop a reputation for being a scam. So they kill the website, and just reboot it under a different name.
That, in essence, is the best case scenario for a person who has been defrauded by an affair site scam. In other instances, the consequences can be much worse. Your credit card information may end up being sold on the deep web. In some instances individuals on the site have blackmailed users with the threat of revealing their intention to have an affair. It’s happened. So you need to be very careful with who you’re willing to give your money to.
One way to avoid online affair scams
Instead of actually cheating on your wife, one guilt free way to get you through those periods where she doesn’t seem interested in having sex with you without actually putting your marriage in jeopardy is by checking out legitimate cam girl sites. Cam girls are paid porn stars who interact with their clients on a one on one basis. It’s cheaper than hiring a hooker, and technically not cheating at all. On the other hand you still get to interact with a girl so you would have some of the intimacy you would get from a live one on one interaction without having to worry about divorce lawyers and alimony payments.
Cam girls from legitimate cam sites have very low risk when it comes to running into online scammers. That isn’t to say that cam scams don’t exist, but you’re far less likely to targeted by scammers because you’re in a much less vulnerable position.
Sadly, there are only a handful of legitimate affair dating websites out there. The vast majority of them are scam sites which will either charge you for porn or try to rob you blind. If you do end up going the affair dating route, here are a few tips that will help you.
