I just wanted to add that this company, should be banned from operating. I agree with many of the reports already put forward. I too signed up in a weakened state and found that most of the contacts are nothing more than scam artists. All you need do is take a look at the photos of many of the girls and it soon becomes apparent that they are duplicated many times. I spoke to Zetsuna who has many aliases and she was an alleged local lass, but it turned out that she was nothing but a scam girl oops cam girl. I don't even believe that it was a girl, the way that the messages were written seemed to be more male than female.

I had her MSN details and contacted her via MSN. I too smelt a rat at this stage and so I did some investigatory work. I had signed up to a 7 day trial which I have now canceled though I haven't received a cancellation notice as the site said I would (funny that). Any way after chatting to several girls it now appears that there is nothing to gain from this site. The only chance of relief is the money taking from your credit card account.

Steer well clear of this scamfest. This site needs to be closed as soon as possible.

true, if it look too good to be true it is probably is... I learned in my online dating experience that you can find any person ho wants any kind of relationship in any website. I also learned that any website that asks you for money to open massages that were sent to you is usually a fake website. I have wrote about Fling in my blog... you are invited to share it and warn others... http://thedatingsupermarket.wordpress.com/2011/03/15/can-you-really-find-easy-ways-to-get-sex-online/

I seriously think that FLING IS BULLSHIT FELLAS. DON'T JOIN. IF YOU JOIN FOR 3 MONTHS & DON"T LIKE IT YOU ARE STUCK W A BULLSHIT SITE FOR 3 MONTHS. A LOT OF WOMEN WILL ADD YOU AS A FRIEND, BUT NONE OF THEM REPLY TO MESSAGES HOW DOES A PERSON SEND OUT OVER 100 messages and get 0 replies ? I am a good looking guy and women are attracted to me. THIS SITE SUCKS! SAVE YOUR $$$$$$

FAKE!!! PEOPLE DON'T BELIEVE THE PEOPLE ON THIS SITE SAYING THAT FLING.COM IS GOOD! MOST OF THEM WORK FOR THE SITE! Sites like Fling.com, and xxxmatch.com are either members trying to solicit outside of the website, or are female workers who work for the site themselves. You'll notice that you that you get tons of e-mails from member wanting to meet you and talk to you but as soon as you sign up they stop coming. Once your membership is up they keep coming again. The majority of the pictures are fake so don't waste your time and dignity on this site. Go out and mingle with people in person!

I don't agree that fling. com is in itself a scam. C'mon people. However, what I do want to put out there is that this country is about business and like all businesses, they offer snake oil remedies. Unfortunately, the problem I have are to be found with the participants and not the establishment. The females on there don't reply back to the most basic of questions and some of them in my opinion shouldn't be so proud because if it wasn't for their well endowed breasts or crazy naked poses, they wouldn't be anything worth looking at. Now I understand that it all comes down to the woman making the choice and females are very picky but to have messaged 14 women in a mature, respectable, and realistic manner because hey, I have the right to know who I'm looking at, only to have no replies while they coming back to check my profile out is A WASTE OF TIME. So yes, it is a scam because the women on there only want to flaunt their goods and pose but that's just pretending to be something that they're not and really, I being man, has no times for games. I have an x-box for that.
So my end point is this: just like exercise machines, and diet fad pills have NOTHING over real exercise and diet, the same goes with online websites and personals having nothing with ACTUALLY going out and meeting people in bars and clubs. Common sense, right?

Fling isn't all a scam. There are members of the opposite sex, you just have to look. Bad thing is, you have to ask yourself why would these women want to go to an anonymous sex hookup site instead of seeking it in the real world? The answer is simple fella's: There's not a man on the planet that would deal with 99% of these ladies who are crazier than outhouse rats. I too fell into the fling trap, to meet a lady at a local drinking establishment, and kept telling me she was "unsure" even while she was in the middle of blowing the trumpet. It would have been cheaper to go to backpage dot com and pay for an hour of fun than give these people any money and then hook up with a psycho nutjob.

I am a woman and I joined fling after my divorce. It was recommended to me by a friend and I wasn't looking for a serious relationship. I am kinda shy and it seemed like an easy way to find someone to hook up with. Even though fling worked for me and I had a few casual flings with people off the site I can see how the majority of men would find fling to be a scam. There are a lot of fake profiles on there of men pretending to be women or women grossly misrepresenting what thy look like ie using a friends picture. Also, there are women who are cam girls and that is how they make their money. Some working for the site and some not. The other problem for men on that site is the male to female ratio. I did not even look at emails because I interacted with people in the chat rooms. At one point a had several hundred emails and after the first week I stopped reading them because 95% of them were along the lines of show me you breasts, butt, vagina etc or offers of money for sex. And in the chat rooms 75% of the men and women said the same sort of things so as a female you learn to ignore most of what is written to you. I would not recommend fling to men without saying a little class and tact go a long way. I would see people ranting in the rooms about how the site was fake and that all the women were fake and it's the same guy who ten minutes ago was saying take off your close and spread your vagina open for me to ... And that's the edited version much more crass in the real version. I said more ten once I would pay good money to see that person go up to a woman in real life and say those things to her as an opening line. Does fling work, yes. Is fling fake, to a degree yes. Are there real women on there and do people really hook up on there, yes. Would I recommend it, only to women I think a decent percent of the guys on there get hosed but I also think most of those guys deserve it for being cruder then they would ever be in real life with a women upon first making their acquaintance.

I understand some of the complaints. I am on there too. I am a real woman and no I don't look like the girls on the hit page of fling.com but I am beautiful and have not had problems with meeting new friends on there, A lot of my friends find it refreshing that I am not one of those scam girls. I do live cam shows from time to time on another site but I am not a professional model and I am not out there to make a quick buck. I have a job outside of my persona life and I have my own place so I don't need to try and connect with someone to scam them or get a sugar daddy so to speak. Most of my friends on there do find it refreshing to find a REAL woman in their local area on there.

Hi I need help in claiming cash back I was billed £32 without no WARNING what so ever I was initially billed £5 for 3 days. However I was then charged a further £1.34. I DIDN'T give permission for that £32 to be extorted account neither did I give to go ahead to take an £1.34 I highly doubt I will get this back but I'll try anywhere. Is there anywhere of getting this money as this is also a fake no-one on that site is even reaaal. All the messages I have sent no-one has responded.

I have been a member of fling.com for 8 yrs and I can attest it is Not a scam site.I know some of you may have fallen victim to once in awhile scammers but we try our best to ban them from the rooms.There are 1000's of women who are real and frequently visit there. I don't know what your problems are but either man up or stay out.
