If the girls showed up, then we knew for sure the site was real, and if we got laid, all the better. On the scam sites we noticed that we got about the same amount of responses as on the legit sex dating sites, but fewer girls were interested in setting up dates with us, and those who did, never showed.
The more sex we got, the better we considered the site was, obviously, but to be honest, if the site delivers a date to you then it’s done all its could. This really pissed us off because here we were taking time out of our day and the girls never showed up to the dates that they had set up.
The problem is that the laws regarding this are somewhat unclear.
Scam sites bury suspicious caveats in their terms of service that fundamentally absolve them from being sued for fraud. A site will offer ostensibly free membership but on a limited basis.
Hook up websites are notorious for scamming users with underhanded and deceptive tactics such as catfishing.
