If you want them to quit billing you, buy a greendot mastercard and update your billing with the new credit card numbers. I guess you learned your lesson. Next time, use the smarter head.

Fling.com is a complete rip-off. do not get scammed like i did. The ads are so fake. If you look @ them the same girl wil have 5 different names somewhere on the site. The emails that came from some of the girls all said the samething. And the others were links to web cams wanting more money. Trust me please dont waste your money. This site is NOT what it is cracked up to be.

Yea, the site is a complete rip off. It's no different from Adult Friend Finder or any of the other "get laid quick" web scam out there. I noticed similarities with fling.com that I found with adult friend finder. As mentioned previously, you will find mulitiple pics of the same broad with different screen names. I think the site itself creates these fake profiles to inflate the amount of members. I used the search option that shows members with verified pics, it showed two people (and not all that attractive). Do a search without that box clicked and the search results show around 1500 members.

My son's bank account number was stolen and used on the fling.com site twice. We are now fighting the bank for forgive overdraft charges. It took a lot of digging to even figure out where the charge came from. The first charge happened day before Thanksgiving and we weren't anywhere near a computer on that day. besides that my kid is only 17 years old. his computer usage is monitered by us anyhow. he isnt online using his bank account (that only had forty bucks in it anyhow) to sign up TWICE for something that cost fify bucks.

You have to cancel your account, even the 7-day trial account, before the account expires otherwise fling.com automatically renews your account for whatever period you had initially subscribed; eg. if you'd chosen the one month option, your account will be automatically renewed for another month. However if you'd chosen the 7-day trial, you'll be automatically upgraded to a one month account unless you cancel your account prior to the end of the trial period. This is in accordance with their terms of service. To cancel, you have to go to the "Manage Account" option, then click on "Manage Subscription" and from there it is fairly straightforward.

As for the women being bogus, I agree that many of them are. The site is clearly geared more toward enticing a guy to click on one of the paying live shows and choke the chicken to a hot looking babe for a minimum charge of $50 or so.

Interestingly enough, three days before my 7-day trial was due to expire, I'd emailed customer service to confirm that if I didn't cancel, that my account would be upgraded. Customer service emailed me back to confirm that, and within 24 hours, I'd received an unsolicited message from a hot-looking 20-year-0ld with her shaved cootie and cute little browneye in full display. The message was a generic "I'd like to get to know you." Sure, in my dreams. What guy pushing 50 wouldn't want a toss in the sack with a hot looking 20-year-old? Come on, it's just a lure to keep guys on the site.

As for the women who are in my age range or who said they would like to meet an older guy, I sent out messages to several and nobody got back to me.

So I'll take my chances away from sites like these, thank you very much.

I agree with all of you. I did'nt join because when I was just looking at the site only about one out of every twenty girls even had a silver account which meant I could'nt talk to the other nineteen I looked at. But if you do want a legit free sight with real girls go to www.plentyoffish.com. Just from my searching it's funny I have came across several girls that I already knew.

u guyz should be more careful. I never thought about joining fling. I saw their advertisment and can tell the site was scam just by looking at it. Their first flaw is that they had bunch of asian pics in a all white neighborhood. Their second flaw is that the same girls change address constantly. Ignorance make u pay big time.

Most men will waste money and time hoping for sex flings on Fling.com. About 8 to 10 men compete for every woman. It’s a crapshoot to find the few real women (and even fewer real women who are serious about hooking up for fun and sex). Be wary of all women on the site, even if they seem legit. Anyone can make a profile for free, as women don’t have to pay to join and use the site. Fling.com is packed with riffraff of fake profiles, scammers and timewasters. They include escort agency pimps, escorts, hookers, strippers, paupers with sob stories seeking cash/gifts, identity thieves, overseas scammers, camgirls, sexsite girls, gay guys posing as women, under-aged girls, saleswomen, etc. Most are dirt poor women seeking to use men to bailout their tragic sob stories or pay for a lifestyle they can’t afford. These scammers are good at bait-and-switch: they pose as real women; attract you with charm, flirting, and sex talk; may even meet you to gain your confidence; then tell you their needs or tragic sob stories to play on your compassion; and milk you for your cash, gifts, help, credit card, identity info or time. Some scammers are easy to spot from their pics and generic script. But it’s difficult to really tell those sophisticated scammers who have been preying on the site for years. One example is: “Rosey Cheeks” (aka “slutfacee” and “Overheated Catalitic Converter”), who seems to be a normal 38-year old Canadian woman from Oakville in Ontario. But she once sold and delivered prostitutes/escorts for her aunt's escort agency. Obviously a former sex industry professional who has been prowling Fling.com for 5 years knows what she is doing on a sex hookup website and how to get what she wants from men. She does travel alone to the USA to have risky one-night stands with horny Americans she picks up on Fling’s video chatroom porn shows. But she also flirts online to bait other men she has no intention of having sex. Then she breaks her promises of intimacy/sex and uses these gullible men as sugar daddies to freeload or scam dinners, cash, car rides, clothes, gifts, air trips, good times, help, etc. Melinda suckered an iPhone 3GS from a Connecticut fling in exchange for her (broken) promise to visit him as his escort. She also scammed a Mississauga fling. For over six months, she milked over $8, 000 of material benefits from him with a greedy sense of entitlement, including: cash, designer eyeglasses, clothes outfits and winter coats, daily rides to work; daily costly meals; and much more for hersef, her home, visiting kids, cat and life. Meanwhile she behaved like a sterile escort, while making excuses to postpone intimacy. She took ruthless action to shamelessly keep what she scammed from him. She took secret photos and video taped her flings to use as leverage against them. On the website, "Rosey Cheeks" smeared them in her profile and hacked their profiles, yet Fling.com still allows this cold-blooded woman to continue scaming new flings on its website.

Yeah, I signed up a couple days ago just to try it out. They automatically charged me for 18 months and then I cancelled the renewal immediately. I looked the next day and there is a $99 charge from "1DATESITE", which I have never heard of and can't find anything about. Their phone number 877-678-2981 takes me to voicemail. I am going to get a new card tomorrow. This ### is illegal but I don't think I can do anything about it and I can't afford to pay like this.
