I’ve also seen a link that simply says “More steamy daters here!”, clicking on it and a new site called popped up, with the option to join with just one click. As a result of this sinful trickery, large numbers of people have been strung along and ripped off.After only joining the site 3 hours earlier, this is what ‘My Activity’ looked like: And after 24 hours ‘My Activity’ looked like this: And after 7 days: I’d now received 21 messages, 30 winks, and had 46 admirers. Especially considering I’d not yet filled out a single word in my profile, nor had I uploaded a photo, and I had even given myself the onscreen name: “ihaverabies”.Yet despite this, my profile also received 5 votes of above 4 stars. A 3 day trial for only £3.48 may sound very tempting, especially when your inbox has been flooded with messages and chat requests from lots of pretty girls.And I’m very sorry to say, the above list is not complete.There are many more dating sites owned by Cupid plc and their white-label partners.Using a web-proxy based in the USA I visited again: As you can see, it looks like Sarah and her friends also live in St Louis (USA). The site is using geo-targeting to obtain your location, then simply displaying your local city/town name on the page.They want you to believe that there are large numbers of beautiful women already on the site, and also living just down the road from you.
But what happens if we access the same website from another location?And you don’t need to look far on Google/Bing to find a significant number of negative reviews for Here are just a handful of examples: “scamcam scam scam men women dont waste your time/money site full of fake profiles like others have reported to no these scammers are employees of the site you want to try for yourself watch out for perfect pics bad english and ‘verification’ 0/5”“Don’t bother going on benaughty, some thing is fishy about the site too, when I sign up for benaughty till i did not paid I got lots of msgs n mails the moment i paid msgs n mails reduced about 90%, and rest 10% were all scam artists, prostitutes and cam girls, not even worth looking at the site.But the reality is – Sarah does not exist, nor does she have a profile on Benaughty, and nor do any of her friends.
