Phishing


Is it just me or are there a TON of fake profiles on AdultFriendFinder?? OMG, it's really a pain in the ass. You're screwed if you don't put an effort into your first impression with someone, but you can also waste a f*ck load of time writing emails to women that aren't even REAL!!

Has anyone heard if AdultFriendFinder is working on a fix for all this phishing crap, or are we stuck with it?

FWIW, and if any of you can benifit from it, here's what I've been doing that at least lessens my time wasted.

On any first contact email I'm completely blunt about asking if the profile is 4 real. I apologize for the directness, but just ask flat out if the profile's legit.

Generally, the ones that are fake come back with some vapid response that has no context relative to my email, and is typically in broken english. If it has a request to contact outside AdultFriendFinder, that's the dead giveaway.

Also, it would be GREAT if AdultFriendFinder could mark profiles that are legit and inactive vs. those that are suspect or in violation and inactive. There are some very nice sounding women that I've had on my hotlist that have gone inactive. I'm hoping that not all of them are phishing scams.
