SensualSeekers - Sensual Seekers and Other Scam Sites How to avoid

1

Review:
I've done the various sites free, and was lucky/smart enough to have the sense to google reviews on most of the websites before I took a free membership or a 3 day pass.

After seeing all the scam reports I decided to have some fun and learn a bit about the sites, how they operate, and how to access them without risking getting ripped off.

I found quickly that a few simple safety rules can help to avoid getting ripped off on you personal credit card and will share them.


Any site that does not allow payment with PayPal will be a scam that intends to syphon your card. If you do join a site with paypal, make sure that you have it set up so that every transaction must be authorised by you personally , and not as an automatic deduction without authorisation.

PayPal has a refund policy that they use to protect their reputation. Use it someone does manage to charge you extra.

HookUp IDs, MeetUp IDs (Various Names) are a Scam. No company can legally offer a safe person pass just based on a ID Card. No company outside Australia can offer you any sort of pass with any legal standing in Australia.

Only the Police and Government legally conduct checks on people in Australia - They take up to six months as a minimum, let alone the 2 minutes from your credit card details scammers promise - and only your employer can initiate a clearance in Australia, not you as a person just seeking one.

No company outside Australia can access any of the databases used by authorities for conduct safe worker checks. When they say they need Credit Card details to verify your age is over 18 - Think about it - How? As I understand People under 18 can legally have a credit card or Visa Debit Card in Australia. Banks are never going to give them your personal details. They are already facing so much shit from the Banking Royal Commission, they would not be game to make it worse for themselves. They only need your credit card details to rip you off.

Pre-paid visa gift cards - These are available in $50, $100, $200 values and can be used anywhere in Australia. I use them for Family Gifts and most transactions I conduct shopping on the internet. I have used the $50 gift card to get 3-day passes on some sites, but plan my access in advance. I make a purchase on something I need to reduce the card balance to $20 or less, then use the card to gain the 3 or 4 short passes for sites I want to check out.

Once the card balance reached zero, they cannot access any more funds.

Any website that will not accept the Visa Gift card you just don't touch at all - Period.

Auto response software bots are very smart now. If you are chatting with a girl, always ask direct questions such as clarifying their general location, or ask a question about the location. If they come back as if they have not even read your question, then you can say with about 99% certainty it is a bot. Next test is to block them. Bots still seem to be able to send you messages / mails after you block them.

If you are just looking for a bit of fun, and not desperate to get a date, The only website I found any satisfaction at was a WebCam site called MyFreeCams. It is free honest chat not just with the girls, but with anyone else in the room.

Pros:
Be careful, Do your homework - don't get scammed

Pre-paid Visa Gift cards are a safe way to buy products and services online without exposing your personal Credit Card. Get the balance down low before you use the card on any dating site and you will only risk loss of a small amount (<$10) before it runs out.

If you want a date, try chatting up the single girls working on the supermarket checkouts, or get a pet dog. Most of the single girls I have dated or made friends with were done that way.

Cons:
Almost every dating site is a scam, or has a high percentage of scammers, because sex sells.

If the site is not based in Australia, you should always assume there is a scam.

If they insist on credit card details it is to rip you off - Don't cry if you were silly enough to give them the details.

SensualSeekers - Addresses

0

Review:
I have given my address (town only) so that the lovely ladies know where I live. It would be appreciated if the ladies would supply only the town or district for their site as I find it fruitless to chat with someone in Queensland when I live in Cranbourne Victoria. I find difficult when it is suggested that i don't reply to someone whom it is impossible to meet. Hope you can rectify this problem. I love this site and delete others that try to connect

Pros:
Love this site

Cons:
Ladies please give at least an Australian post code and don't just rip us off remeber equality

Zoosk - Not quite a scam

0

Review:
I tried zoosk after I quit Sensual seekers. Not much better in many ways.

I dont feel i was scammed, but it it cost me $35 for an exploratory month sub. It took me a week to cancel that.

First, their matching system kept matching me with women that just didn't fit my interests, worse they were basically the same types....and none matched my saved search criteria.

Then i realised that i wasnt getting any responses to the messages i sent to those i sought out, maybe some were fakes or inactives, but i sent a lot of messages, all to different women, and nothing...now i dont expect to get a reply for every message, but you send enough messages and surely someone is going to say something eventually.

Then i realised that if they were not subscribed, they couldnt reply. i could find no way of determining if a member was subb'd or not, nor if they were active.

I need feedback, in fact...a dating site is about communication. Getting no response consistently feels, as i have said in another review, unnatural. I found it creepy, not to mention depressing.

So in less than a week, i have ditched zoosk and in their feedback form suggested they allow non-paying members one free response to each paid member, and some ways they could limit even that.

Pros:
Seem to be at least a few real people on Zoosk.

Cons:
their matching system is totally ineffective.

'free' members can't respond to messages.

Have to pay more on top of subscription to be able to find out if your messages are even being read.

no way i could find to determine if a member was free, or even active at all.

Inhibits communication, lowers expectations, raises frustration and feeling of isolation.

SensualSeekers - Just read the review and pay attention ;)

Review:
Well, at first SS seemed ok, got plenty of hits, spent a weekend first screening out those who obviously didn't read my profile page. then tried to message a few prospects, instant demand for money.

Ok, so I tried to buy three credits, each of which is one message. SS wouldn't accept my card, possibly a good thing.

Got hardcore (security context not sexually) on my profile and the messages sent to me, screened again for obvious scammers.

Read terms and conditions...where I found in section 8 their disclaimer on 'Fantasy Profiles' (to encourage socializing, and conduct social research?!)

Realized that anyone that I may spend cash to contact could be a fake bot.

Soooo, I have adjusted my profile to aggressively screen out bots where possible, provided a secure email address just for SS, so any real ladies can contact me for a face to face midday coffee in a public space.

I'll keep an eye on that and see how it goes, but to be honest, paying per message when a bunch of them will be 'fantasy profiles' really gets to me (i cant verify, but of over 500 messages, only about 100 felt remotely real, and of them only about 20 showed any signs of having read my profile).

Maybe if they refunded money spent on contacting their fakes it would feel less like a scam...

Pros:
none that are concrete

Ohh, actually, i have spent most of the weekend kacking myself laughing at the number of contacts that claimed they contacted me because of the effect my profile picture had on them...i don't post pictures of myself online ever...

Cons:
costs money per message.
Uses 'fantasy profiles' that will only frustrate and mislead you. check section 8 of terms and conditions ;D

Don't waste your money . Stole 3 months of subscription against my will . Just under $300 . Single man , I have a disabled son at home and money is so needed for his car . I pleaded for the money to be returned because I didnt tick a box . Pleaded many times but these people are not nice . Fake profiles everywhere. I hope the people cashing in on this rubbish site will have Karma dealt one day

Biaustralia - Get on it

0

Review:
Iíve been on this site since 2014 as MF couple & single M. Itís is great for meeting like minded friends & play mates from singles to couples whether theyíre are guys, girls, gurls. There is something for everyone & great people that are wanting to meet.

Pros:
Real people that want to meet. Variety & diversity of the people. Very minimal judgement.

Cons:
As always with any hook-up site, there are the occasional seedy ones that donít understand a polite no. But itís easy to ignore that very minuscule minority & move on.

SensualSeekers - Sensual Seekers is a site that dishonestly prays o

Review:
Consistant with the information here and I went one step further to create another bogus profile and amazingly I have duplicated emails to both profiles at the exact same time but to both profiles.

My guess is that they have a host of eastern block women working for about 10dollars per hour just stealing and creating profiles and responding to emails. They are so stupid that they have people from Tasmania contacting people in Queensland for dates.

I believe that the ACCC should be involved in this deceptive and fraudulent operation who trades with bogus profiles of pictures stolen from facebook etc.

Some Russian is probably sitting back laughting. You have to agree that its quite well done up front and most seem genuine. I made a second profile with a bald guy with no legs 4'11" in a mobility bike and can get 50 emails a day. What I really object to are the granny pictures that could make you throw up.

Pros:
Thieves and liars

Cons:
Pieces of dog droppings.
