Free webcam fun with no credit card younger men dating older women problems
All this makes it obvious that instead of chatting with a real person we are in fact dealing with a chat bot.
And this begs the question, why would a chat bot be interested in a human companion? The answer to that question becomes clear when we look at the link the helpful Eva sent us when she offered her “free passes”.
This may happen from time to time, particularly if your Skype name is publically searchable.
But what is really behind these contact requests and why do people bother?
However, the better they get the worse it gets for the rest of us. I just received the same request for the same site.
I knew it was fishy (no pun intended) so I decided to call POF.
I gave her my email figuring, hell, let's see where this goes!
I then immediately got an email from POF "admin" regarding activating my video chat capabilities. Which to those of you who don't know, is a website that lets you build your own webpage.
There goes our free date and at the same time this reveals the true aim of this scam: credit card fraud.
I immediately knew it was an attempt at a scam, so, being who I am, I messaged the person I'd been communicating with that they'd been outed, and gave them some helpful advice.
That if they hoped to scam people and steal their credit card info, they needed to up their game, and at least create a believable card info stealing webpage!
I said sure, to which she replied that she tried to invite me, but that it wasn't letting her.
She said I needed to turn on the setting, so I looked for a setting that allowed chat and could not find one.
When asking “Are you a bot” the invariable answer is “lol no i’m not a bot silly.” The contact in our example has listed their birthdate as 1980, but claims to be 25 years old.
