This site and many others are using your name in highlighted text and saying they are associated with you and to verify my info so I can meet the girl I contacted on CL. If they were real girls why dnt they respond to my emails when I tell them that the site they gave me doesnt work or asks me to pay. This one and many others are posing as if they are affiliated with you, I suggest if you care about public trust you get after these people and assist in shutting them down.

Thank you,

Aggravated dater trying to find someone to date, spend time with.

I disagree wholeheartedly with this complaint. That site is a very good way to weed out all the guys using fake information to try to meet up with girls and do who knows what to them. It's free to sign up to the site, so I'm not sure with this guy is talking about. If you have nothing to hide, then you shouldn't have a problem signing up toa FREE site that will verify that you are who you say are. Put yourself in my shoes...I'd like to meet a guy online, but with so many bad things happening to girls who meet people online, this is a nice way to help weed out the psychos!

I completely disagree. If you have a problem with verifying yourself then idk what your true intentions are...It's free to sign up so whats the big hassle?

Do you not value the security of these girls??? Or maybe you're just up to something fishy...hm...

I got a confession from one of the scammers which I posted here: http://craigslistscammers.com/blog/?p=21

Note how there's a word-for-word copy of minainaz post, but under a different username, at the site I linked to.

It's sad when a cheap and dangerous man attempts to mess up a great thing. This site has been so good to me as I am a certified massage therapist who works alone. I have been using this site for over a year, free of charge, because it allows me the comfort of meeting a client without having to worry about safety.

Yes, you do need to provide personal info. for a background check, ONLY. The other background check sites charge and aren't as personal and that is the very reason I use this one! I LOVE the site, my clients love it, and in the end, my clients as well as myself are satisfied!

A faithful user of the site for my massage business:

Absolute scam... I confronted one of them with multiple facets of evidence and they gave up the charade. Absolute SCAM. They get $20 per sign up with the referral URL. Site hits have increased 10 times since January 2009.

Keep your money!!! You won't get anything out of this but a headache and a big mess.

I absolutely agree that this site is 100% a scam. My brothers wife found out that they were using her pictures and information in craigslist posts and on there site as one of the fake women to draw victims to their site. I'd also like to point out that anyone with half a brain can tell when people affiliatted with the company the complaint is against are posting on here as users of the service in question. Its sites and people like this that make the internet a more dangerous place.

so...this site is about confirming identity?
...and how is it going to confirm anything about a person, besides the fact that they have a credit card?

Can someone please help me out here. I received a request from my ad on Craig's list and saw the person that has an interest in meeting me off of this website. She claims that she only likes to talk on the phone and does not check email or texting. This is exactly what I am looking for. I am so tired of being scammed off of other websites and hate the chatting. I would feel much better in actually talking to someone as a means of communication. According to her, the site is free. I checked in to the site and it states that the first 3 days are free and you can cancel at any time. It provided a customer service phone number. I called and actually was able to talk to someone in customer service. My question is how legit is this site? I see the mixed comments and am touch and go on whether or not I should proceed forward with joining. Can someone out there please give me some feedback.

The posts on this site are shills.

If you give your credit card # to ANYONE, they will use it! D U H

If you want to verify age or real-ness, try talking to them on the phone. Email back and forth, then meet at a restaurant.

This site works hand in hand with the scammers to get your card # . I D I O T S

I totally agree, i just recently went to that and the problem is not about "giving your background" its about getting your hopes up to meeting someone and scammers decide to use fake pics and fake names to get you to pay so called "free" fee. My question is why do I need to "pay" anything? Background checks aren't cheap or free and banks and credit/debit card distributors are not allowed to give others your information for this purpose. ThE basic idea of this whole sham is to snag people into paying a fee until they realize it is a scam.

I have worked in the banking industry for 13 years now in the security division. I have never in my life known of a banking institution to give any personal information regarding a customers identity, whether it is an age verification or any other bonafides. It takes a warrant signed by a judge to release any information regarding a cardholder. These sites are complete scams. If a lady wants to check a mans pedigree, first for registered sex offenses, this info is of public record and available online thanks to the megan act. If she wants to check on a man to see if he is a violent felon, this too is available online. Wake up guys, this is a total scam. None of these sites have any additional links. Also, the people running these sites are most likely criminals themselves.

I was directed to one of these sites recently and it seems to be a total scam. If you try to click on browse, help, home, anything it does absolutely nothing. All this site can do ( if it can do anything at all) is verify that you are 18 years old and you have a credit card account. Here is another reason I think its a scam. Take for instance im a woman wanting to meet a man, im desperate this and that you contact me. Why would I want to send you to a site and on the bottom of my picure or around my picture are other naked girls, why in the hell would I put myself in a position where you can see other girls besides me. Makes no freaking sense. Also check this im looking at the site and I cant figure out where does a woman go to be a member of this background verification nonsense.

I don't hope to insult anyones intelligance here but, is it really a scam if the sites intentions are listed right in their terms and conditions. Where they are "scamming" people is coming on two fronts. First, as stated earlier, the site is only free for the first three days and then it becomes a paysite unless cancelled. Ok well if you are only using this service to get a prospective dates number then cancel the service directly after being confirmed and writing down the number of course ;). The second part and albeit the more annoying of the two, is that the site automatically signs you up for three other sites that are not clearly defined and are billed out at approximatly 40$ a piece. I have not yet used this service because I do not want to deal with the hassle of trying to figure out what these are and how to cancel them. Bottom line I would procede with caution, as you always should when providing your financial information on the Internet and for god sakes read the terms and conditions. Checking that little box that says I agree transfers all responsibility from the shady company directly onto... You guessed it. YOU

Read the fine print. Free isn't free. There are always strings attached. You don't pay now, but in 3 days you end up paying $39.95. Then on top of that, they refer your e-mail and credit card to two other sites that charge you $39.95. EACH. Watch out guys. The girls may look hot when they send that e-mail, but it's not worth loosing $100.00 a month to maybe or maybe not hook up with them. Better to save that dough for a real woman who won't do an Age sex offender check on ya. *which is a lie*

THIS IS A SCAM SITE. Anyone saying anything different is probably one of the "girl" scammers. This is how they make money by getting YOU to sign up to as many web sites as possible. They'll tell you it is for age verification. They'll tell you that if you sign up, you will get to talk to them or some other nonsense. But, once you sign up, you are actually signed up to different adult entertainment web sites where you will NEVER find that "girl" again. If you don't cancel these web site memberships, you get billed. I work at one of the customer service centers dealing with these god damn calls all day long regarding stupid men looking for love and thinking they're going to get it by giving a stranger their credit card information. These men are dumb and I am stuck having to take responsibility over their stupidity on a daily basis.
