Is it normal that i exposed this one app for this reason?

The other day I exposed this one dating app that has fake profiles and I decided to catfish one of the fake profiles and here's the three things I found:

1) None of the girls were real
2) Most of the photos on the profiles were old photos ( I could tell they were old because of the fashion used, half of them were from late 2000s, early 2010s or mid 2010s and maybe a few that were from the late 2010s ), most of them were stolen from social media platforms
3) They all seem to be using the same exact line ( i.e. they'll just say the same things over and over again )

Instead of making messages free they decided to have this currency where you need to spend more money to talk to them which smells of definite scam and chances are they weren't who they say they are.

Is It Normal?
Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • With the exception of Match.com, dating sites are mostly bots. Sites make more money by keeping you away from other prospective hopefuls, so that you will engage with their bots. These bots have beautiful fake pictures of models with impressive fake profiles. AI software picks words to fill in the blanks of scripted responses. It is managed by Internet workers in India using point and click interfaces.

    Here is a list of tips to spot dating bots. Almost assuredly, bots outnumber real people on most sites.

  • I salute you! I can't stand scams, and scammers. People who seek to take advantage of those who are lonely, and vulnerable are truly the scum of the Earth. I think you did a really good thing.

  • I love OkCupid. It was hilarious back in the day. But I made an account about a year ago and deleted it soon after I made it. I told my sister about it and not long after she was on, she saw MY profile. The one I DELETED. Crazy.

    • Ah, OKCupid...

      It was doing that site's daft so-called personality tests that led to my wife and I meeting back in the late 2000s - and our daughter's arrival 40 weeks after our first "date". Which was actually a weekend marathon of (totally unprotected) shagging interspersed with a couple of trips out into the Scottish Highlands just so we could convince ourselves that it wasn't _really_ all about the bonking.

      We've been together for about 15 years now, so maybe the tests weren't quite as ridiculous as they seemed at the time.

      • Their personality tests are hilarious. And they’ve actually put together great stats based off the information they’ve gathered!

        Good for y’all!

  • There are a number of such sites... I fell for a few long ago before I figured them out.

    • I exposed an app that goes by the name Yoomee, the other thing I noticed is after you sign up you get bombarded with bots.

      Realistically women with those kinds of looks wouldn't message people right away.

      What I hate the most is how they bribe their users into giving the app 5 star reviews to hide the shady shit they're doing.
