Well I just got word back from her. As thought, she's 100 percent fake.

She gave me her number, but it was one of those TEXTNOW subscriber numbers and it was located in California under area code 669. Luckily I was able to check it from my work as I was able to fake a call and check it out. She then tried to call it back to see if it was a live number, but I have tech which can forward numbers to a test line and make it look like it's a valid number but it's not.

In short, I reported her profile, but it's still here. I think Meelp hasn't gotten to it yet.

it's hard for a woman to trust someone they do not know at first..... It's hard for anyone, because if persons don't spend actual time together, like in a 20 minute real life meeting, there shouldn't be any trust developed. Sure you can cam, but even that can be a scam.

I do think talking first is a good way to establish trust. .... Sure, in person.... but not on the phone..or chatting.. or on cam....scammers do that. They can do screen-grabs of your image, and use that to make fake profiles, or who knows what... Best way is the way it's always been...in person.

100 percent correct and I can't argue it one bit.

You were not chatting with a person... probably a bot designed to gather personal information.

Whenever a woman does actually contact you, keep online chatter to a necessary minimum , and get them to come meet you some where. Agreeing to meeting and showing up, is the best way to begin establishing trust.


whoisagentj replies on 4/19/2019 7:39 am:
I would agree with you that I'm most likely not chatting with a person in this instance.

However, while I partially agree to talking with them, it's hard for a woman to trust someone they do not know at first. I do think talking first is a good way to establish trust. What I normally do is to help them work on a meeting place, I tell them that they should pick the meeting place in a neutral location for the both of us. That way it allows a woman to know she can be safe there without having to worry.
Also, someone else mentioned that by using the cams here, if both parties agree to use cams, they can see that each other is indeed the real party and thus it makes it easier to see each other and know that this is the real person they are dealing with. Thus it makes things easier for both parties to establish trust with each other.

I had some 'guy' from Australia using the exact same tactics.

Immediately asking for email, what my real name is. Ignoring my questions AND, here's the stupidest part, saying let's get together tonight for drinks ! * guffaws* totally oblivious to the 10,000 mile separation.

Later I goggle image checked the photos and they appear to be stolen from from a twitter account - assuming THAT account is genuine.


whoisagentj replies on 4/18/2019 11:28 am:
That's another way to make sure if a person is real. Take the picture image and do an image search. The funniest ones is when they use picts from famous porn stars. Stupid scammers are the best for funny shit.

I love the word "Nefarious"

Seriously I would provide a bogus number...some 900 number that costs money.


whoisagentj replies on 4/18/2019 11:26 am:
I find that booty....nefarious....Muahahahahahaaaa!!! LOL!

Oh no, I give them this number....

773-202-5862. If you are local to Chicago, you'd know it's a carpet company called Luna Carpet. They have a great jingle on their commercials.

Trollin' scammers is funny if you give them false stuff.

When they're reported how can anyone be sure they were
eliminated and not given a new fake account.
You really give this place way to much credit.

Using more than all the road!


whoisagentj replies on 4/18/2019 11:23 am:
Well you can't be 100 percent. All you can do is to ID the fakes/scammers, report them and move on, really. I'm just one man fighting against the system, brother! LOL!

ya...i really don't get that, people ask others to give personal phone numbers...i get asked way too many, and like you said, i don't even know anything about them...what's up with that??? i really don't like talking on phone, let alone endless texting sessions, so to get my phone number, either you must be true friend or family...normally when i deal about setting up the meeting (if we went that far...), i use k ik to communicate...

anyway...oh i have bunches of men who gave me their numbers, (from the first communication!!!). you want them??? you can probably prank call...lol...


whoisagentj replies on 4/18/2019 9:40 am:
Well the reason for trying to ask for their number is simple. There are businesses that are out there, many of them shady as fuck, but they need active telephone numbers of people who are looking for something. The more numbers they get that are active numbers, they can sell those numbers to say, "Hey I have a list of over 2000 horny guys. I'll sell that information to anyone for 10 bucks. You want the list of these people who are active? You gotta pay me for it." And there are companies out there that will pay for that list. And then can send unwanted texts to your phone, or call you to say 'I got your number off of this porn site, pay me 300 dollars in bitcoins and I won't share that number to your boss, your loved ones, your family, etc..." in a way to intimidate you into paying.

There are a lot of nefarious reasons why these people want your number so they can text you, contact you, or blackmail or extort you out of money or time.

Which is why they want your number.

Daily I deal with men who are attached AND or to young. It's going to happen. Not the end of the world.

Love all animals. Tolerates humans.


whoisagentj replies on 4/18/2019 9:33 am:
Yeah, but those people are at least real. So far, I've only talked to 2 people that have been real. The rest have all been fakes, frauds or scammers. This is what we men have to deal with on a normal basis here at this website. And Meelp rarely does anything to remove these people from the website. Which is why I posted this. We have to step up and actively patrol this site and report the frauds. I mean, I know this will never end, there will always be fakes and frauds on this website. But being active to combat them will deter them until they get tired and move on elsewhere.

ok first rule of thumb is read what that person wrote...these scammers have a specific set of either questions or criteria they say or ask..read the paragraph that says,":that was my thus reason for joining the site." who talks like that ? the second thing is they ignore your inquiries , reading what you wrote in question was normal and straight forward..whats not to understand ?the second contact asking for texting lol dead giveaway..i been through the most difficult and frustrating chats ever and it always ends up the same way.might want to check out her specifics as well , if eye color is listed as black lol...ask her about that dark brown can be mistaken for black but black is non existent..been there as well. good luck


whoisagentj replies on 4/18/2019 9:27 am:
Completely agree with what you said. How they speak in a normal conversation is important. If they type something that doesn't sound normal in your head as normal speech, that's a good indicator of being a scammer/fake/fraud.
Ignoring inquiries is a big red flag in my opinion. If you can't answer simple basic questions, that's a huge red flag to me.
Finally, I do pick certain things from a person's profile and I will focus on that. Like if a person says they one thing, and if you purposely mess it up, to try and trick them up, and they never correct you, like they say they have kids, and you say "So you don't have any kids? That must be nice!" If they don't correct you, you know that the person is a 100 percent a fake.

You have to know how to trip people up in order to get them to see if they are paying attention. If they aren't, you know they are a fraud or fake.

Way to many scammers.


whoisagentj replies on 4/18/2019 9:18 am:
Well, the only way to actively combat them is to report them. If the entire people of this site were to actively report all fakes and scammers here, this site would be forced to handle them and keep the website free of them.
Thanks for posting!

Oh c'mon....trolling the scammers is all kinds of fun!


whoisagentj replies on 4/18/2019 7:25 am:
That is true! I love trolling scammers. But in this one yet, she's on the 95 percent sure that she's a scammer, but I'm still giving her the benefit of the doubt at the moment.

Once I know for sure he/she is a scammer (again this could be a guy pretending to be a woman here, IDK) that's when the wheels come off and I love trolling people when it come to that. Hey thanks for stopping by!
