The Scam of AmateurMatch.com

Mar 17, 2008

If you are a guy looking for a woman, do not, I repeat, DO NOT spend a dime at Amateur Match. I started with a free account where 6 - 8 women a day were sending email com-ons to me.

A friend had said he got great women from this site and so I thought, OK, I'm getting some good e-mails. I am very attractive man and do attract hot looking women on other dating sites.

After about a week or so, I decided to join to reply to all the hot ladies. No one responded. Not one and all the e-mails stopped. I went to the chat room, and all that were there were scripts of fake cam bots or women wanting you to go to Yahoo Messenger to chat and then wanted to cam for money and wanted your credit card. Some of the women chatting said the same lines over and over. More bots. I felt my stomach hit the floor.

I went out on the internet and googled the site and there were all the complaints. The same was said from the e-mails to the cam gals. All fake. All a scam. I canceled my subscription and tried calling the company. Nothing. I notified bank of America of the company and the tactics. They sent me to the business fraud group. They were great.

I then went back to the site and posted all of the information about the site in my profile and also went out and created a female account, which I then found out had full function without paying a dime.

I posted all the fraud info and a link to the government website www.ic3.gov on my female profile and then started adding 100's of men's as my buddies. I got 100's of replies stating "thank-you" for exposing them there on their own site.

I also alerted the FBI and the Secret Service and they agreed that www.ic3.gov was the best way to report the site's activity.

Daily I go out to check on the site, work the chat room to let the guys know who may have just joined and not know the truth. I hoped that eventually, the fraud team would get them, and today, I see the site is gone. I feel like I have made a difference against these scam artists. Hopefully, they will be gone for good and the other sites that seem to be similar (Fling.com) will meet the same fate.

I hope all that I helped will find this note as well and those who gave me their e-mail addresses I will follow up with once I am sure it is gone for good.

Cheers and Happy St. Paddy's Day!

This is also a site to find hookers. They get your information and start e-mailing you.

I too believe that amateurmatch.com is a fraudulent site. It sucks that you must call a number to end your subscription. On most dating sites, you can do it all online. I made the mistake of signing up twice. You get lots of "hits' in the "free" mode but when you subscribe the "hits' decrease and you get almost no responses to your replies to your inbox messages. This site should be shut down but it is under foreign registry. And now, after I've signed in with my correct login info, this *** site takes right to the login site. It is a vicious circle and I am getting totally pissed! Too bad this site is not in the U.S. where you could turn it in to the Better Business Bureau. I believe that amateurmatch.com is a total *** scam! :( :cry

Yeah well, I wish I had read this before today. The Site is back up in operation and has been so for quite some time. I too was getting messages from women when I opened my free account.

So, after several weeks of this, I joined (08/09/2013). I figured "what could go wrong."

Well, plenty.

When I did a search for women near me who are interested in "Discreet Relationship or Casual Sex" I was AMAZED at the NUMBER of women in my area who were interested. On NO OTHER SITE were there this many women who were interested. I mean I must have hit the mother load of *** women. I mean I must be dreaming.

Then the old saying "If it seems to good to be true, it probably is" entered my mind.

So, I did some checking.

ALL the women who previously sent me messages were tagged as "Online Cupids" and they had no city or state information in any of their profiles. When I did an inquiring in their "Help" section (what a laugh) as to why, it stated that Online Cupids no longer have their city and state information listed - no reason why.

ALL the women who have sent me messages do not have any city or All state information in any of their profiles. Which I found very strange because, all the women I did searches on, and sent messages to, did.

To top it all off, most of the women who viewed my profile have a 10 digit numbers (telephone numbers) with a comma and then a 2 letter state for

I agree mostmare from Ghana, yet they send you these pictures ofmwhite girls, some of them duplicates, and ask you for money to get them home. Even the ones here in the States, so I think, still ask you for money. ***, I offered to cash in miles for a gal to come see me, and she insisted on the cash. What does that tell you? Have you noticed tha AM, MILFS HOOKUP, and one other all have the same girl asking you to upgrade. Hmmmmmm. Perhaps, the Feds need to look into it, but hey, hey, they are too busy with other things.

Just read the terms of service. In the terms they CLEARLY state that the place is full of scammers controlled by them.

See the terms and conditions section: VIII, E, 2

They really should update the article that is ranking so well, to give more up to date info that is not 4 years old, maybe an addendum at the end explianing you are preserving the content etc, but here is how the story has eveloved.

I got sucked in too! Not once but twice the first time with a money order that was "lost" so finally I paid thru visa the second time! I should have realized that too many profiles were from small towns near me and that the percentage didn't add up! I thot maybe remote areas had lonelier women!! "STUPIID ME" ! After I paid - most of the emails stopped even though I answered to about 40 of them - NOT ONE returned mine

I joined without paying and would receive 10 to 20 messages a day. I live in a rural community and honestly do know everyone that lives here. So it was obvious that it was a scam when I received messages from where I have lived for over 30 years. Don't have lots of time to waste but did see and read the disclaimer. I would post my e-mail addreess on my profile and comment about the scam that it is, but of course the messages kept coming with generic comments. When something appears too goo to be true, it is. Was very lucky that I did not get suckered into paying and before I join any site, I first check to see how to cancel.

It has been awhile, but I am very sure that I was putting a profile onto this site. When I was done, I ended up by being looged onto SpeedBoink.com
Well, there is no shortage of mail from eager and willing females that want to hook up if for no other reason than to ***. I replied to each and every mail that I recieved. Trouble was, is that that was the end of the line. There are no one on the other end to recieve whatever mail that I sent back. No response from any of them.
So, it would appear that AmateurMatch.com and SpeedBoink.com are one and the same, or else seemingly closely related.
Doesn't it suck that here we are trying to find someone to compliment our lives, and all's we do is end up by getting burned, or scammed?

Yep, I too am a victim of Amatuermatch.com. I won't bother repeating everything that's already been said in this thread. All of it is true. I'm not a lawyer, and I have read the disclaimer, but it seems to me this site is misrepresenting themselves as a dating site when they are nothing more than a paid *** site. If they were a real dating site, then members would have the possibility of actually meeting someone real who is close to them, not just phony profiles of women who claim to be close by, and women who are trying to sucker you for even more money to watch them perform on a webcam. At the very least, there should be limit on the number of real vs. fake profiles on the site. And even then, the phonies should not be allowed to falsify where they are located. and fake *** girl text me on my cell phone want me to send them money how thay got my cell phone ### i dont know thay need to stop :( :zzz

Never signed up for anything and this Amateur Match is bombarding me with emails. Filled a complain with the FTC. Don't know if it will do any good. When I'm in Las Vegas, I'll go to their office.
