They always asked for you to use your credit card to pay their .00 fee for registration and to do this so called verification.All they did by you doing this was steal money off your card and enroll you onto other websites without your knowledge or authorization.
Then there are the others who are in the US who came up with the excuse of them being afraid to fly when I said I would reserve a plane ticket for them and wanted me to send them cash for them to drive to me and they needed extra money to payoff their bills and back rent first.
They would never drive up to me as they kept the money and disappeared....another scam. Then there are also these ALT/Adultfriendfinder employed porn models ( actually escorts/hookers) who say they are in my town and looking for some company.
When I check out the hotel they said they were staying in, they were never there and the hotel never heard of them.
When I say I would not use my credit card because it is a proven fact all verification websites are illegal scams, they say I should pay her manager 300.00 dollars before I am to see her...another scam.
I joined alt during its second month of inception, many years ago.
It had some minor problems even back then, but when the current owners bought the site, they quickly destroyed its original intent..alternative and bdsm website.
