I've been designing systems and writing code for almost 30 years (no, I'm not that old, I started in junior high school - if you want to get serious, I've been a professional developer since about 1990).The design of secure systems is something I know more than a little about. So when I see systems that have flaws, I tend to geek out on them.Listen, I keep telling you, you gotta “fish” in the right pond. Be sure to leave a comment below and let me know if you have any questions about this post or about dating sites in general and I’ll weight in and give you my two cents on how to make sure you’re on the right sites and not getting scammed Comment Rules: Remember what Fonzie was like? Anyway, be on the lookout and stick with the sites I recommend so you don’t waste a bunch of moolah and get taken by one of these scammer com is a great site (and 100% free) and is the biggest paid dating site (lots of women on there).
So, how can singles wade through the muck and find true love?And I have to comment on the absolute lack of concern the site's administration seems to have regarding the problem, to the point of appearing to actively ignore it. Presuming you've actually gone to the trouble to create a reasonable profile and filled out the demographics, you will begin to show up in the searches that others do.Once you start looking at other profiles and liking their photos or stating that you're interested by clicking on the checkmark of your "daily matches," you will start to interact with others. Strike up a conversation with someone and you have a motivated target that is much more liable to fall for whatever pitch you're throwing.Both talked about how they had their heart broken recently and how all they care about now is a sense of humor and looks don’t matter, etc. Dont wanna make my ad long so email me and I’ll tell you a bit more about my self. In this case, some of the profiles were created by the sites themselves, and the sites’ employees contacted subscribers posing as the fake (and “often scantily clad”) women.You probably replied back, and you haven’t heard from either in a week. You get 3 women who check out your profile the moment you post it every time. there’s a prety good chance you’re dealing with FAKE dating profiles. Did you know that some dating websites are known to be FULL of these fake profiles? I was surfing the web the other day and found a request made on a site called Elance.com, which provides outsourcing services for freelancers:“Looking for a casual date or a new friend to hang out with from time to time. If your looking for dating please dont be gay or married! ”A company called Jetplace was ordered (by a judge) to own up to adding fake profiles to dating site redhotpie. The best (or lamest) part is their defense: The websites pointed to disclaimer language acknowledging that “some” profiles may be fictitious. Why the fuck are you gonna sign up to a dating site if they have profiles that are fictitious? Critical is fine, but if you're rude, we'll delete your stuff.They're in West Africa, Eastern Europe and it's very difficult for British law enforcement to take action against them in those jurisdictions,” Steve Profitt, Deputy Head of Action Fraud explains.If you are on a personal connection, like at home, you can run an anti-virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware.I'm not above admitting that in my youth I was what you'd call a hacker. When those flaws affect me directly, I geek out even more.This issue has become the fingernails-on-the-chalkboard of my geek cred. Let me also start by saying that I met my girlfriend on Match.com, so I have no gripe with the idea of online dating and Match's business in general. But getting that out of the way, I need to blog about a problem the site had when I was active, and appears to still have. The problem I have is with the vast number of fake accounts and fake activity, and how Match profits from this and, thus, has no incentive to remedy the situation even in the face of obvious steps that could be taken. When one first signs up at Match, the activity and interactions begin.Yup, you think theres a lotta hot chicks on the site, you pay your membership and boom… Not because they have a great service that can help you meet chicks, because they are dicks. Please use your PERSONAL name or initials and not your business name and do not put your website in the comment text, as both come off like spam.Why on earth would a dating site want someone to create 500 fake singles profiles? Maybe to ‘pad’ their site with fake profiles to make it APPEAR like there are a lot more women active on the site than there really are? Ask good questions, have fun and thanks for adding to the conversation!
