1 England, West Midlands, United Kingdom Review updated:

Almost immediatley after joining as a basic member you will receive a tempting proposal from what i suspect to be a non existant potential date in order for you to read the message you must pay £20 and become a full member.Then if you do not renew, low and behold within a very short space of time you receive more messages in my opinion to lure you into renewal.
After receiving quite a few proposals not once have i received mails of any substance that would justify these to be genuine.
Following 2 mails from one particular "person" it seemed obvious they were not written by the same person.Therefore i must suspect and conclude one big elaborate scam.
If i remain unconvinced of the authenticity i will certainly be making a telephone call to the local trading standards in Windsor, Berkshire.

    Absolutely correct...there is no doubt whatsoever that this site is a scam. Should you join and then wait a month or so you will have 20 - 30 mails in your inbox. Don't waste time and money joining to read them - it is guaranteed that not one will have read your profile and they are all generic 'would love to meet you' messages that have been copied and pasted into hundreds of messages. I made point of asking that any respondent should just put my name in the subject line to show that they had read my advert. Surprise, surprise...30 messages - not one had my name as requested.

    Oh...and in case you're wondering - no..I'm no George Clooney but have had a lovely time, thanks very much, on other sites so don't be put off just don't touch THIS site with a barge-pole!

    I agree - the site shows a multitude of horny women only 10 minutes form my location - didnt realise i lived in such a hotbed of sexually activity. many of the profiles are too good to be true and when i have had a reply, the response is completely out of character with the profile (normally very explicit) i.e doctor who wanted discretion / take it slowly then comes back with how she couldn't wait to do all manner of sexual acts on me - doesn't add up so i suspect that replies are being manufactured to keep you interested! I'd say there are some real women on there ( i did chat to one but she was rather more reserved than most of the fake women's profiles) but clearly the site manufactures a lot of profiles themselves to make it more attractive to men and hence they might subscribe/ re-subscribe.

    Yes a shameful con - lets hope they get investigated and closed down soon

    I agree this site is complete con. Same thing happened to me. Get messages from people which are clearly manufactured and do not relate to anything that was said in the last email. it is pretty clear that the site/admin/agents are setting up fake accounts and taking money from unsuspecting customers. has anyone taken any action against these guys and got a refund.

    I have to agree with all the other complaints, this site is a complete con. Vague messages from people who just do not ring true. One girl claims to be a 25 year old shy virgin rebelling against a strict clergyman father and yet has four naked photographs of herself on her profile, including face! A married lady doctor wanting a discrete affair has a photograph with legs wide open, boobs out and a clear face shot. Strange that he typing is full or spelling mistakes, poor grammar and no punctuation or capital letters.

    It stinks. Apparently it is part of a bigger group all with an office in Windsor.

    Yes, It's all a complete scam.

    I used to work there, my job was to write messages to guys to get their money. I know it's wrong now, but we were bonussed on how many people we could sign up. The company is WLD (, who run about 200 sites like this, all fake, and all big cons. Sorry's true.

    This is a Scam Site for sure.
    I was charged for a 6 month Membership instead of ONE Month...
    I tried to get a refund for the difference only and they refused me.
    What sort of Company would do that .?
    Everything others have experienced here is true...BUTR..Who do we report this to..??
    The OFT, or Whom..?

    Absolute disgace. I should have read the reviews before joining!
    A total scam. Once you join and access the site there is no going back. You cannot get a refund as the terms and conditions stae that if you use the site there is no refund- hence no breach of contract on their part as they state that you agreed to the T and C.
    I do not think that there is even one real female on the site. I e mailed them countless times demanding money back due to fraud etc. They kept replying with the usual answers and that they took steps to ensure they were all genuine. RIGHT!
    I removed my picture and changed my profile to sound like the most riduclous description I could think of and the winks and messages still kept coming! I e mailed them again only to be told that these must be "CAMGIRLS" who are operating a scam. so there you go, they openly admit that a large majority of the females on the site do not actually exist!
    My profile has been looked at just once in 2 months and that was by a right grimmer!
    They have tried to tell me that female members can send "icebreaker" messages to loads of people (this is apprently not an option for a male member). But that still begs the question, "How come they hae not even bothered to read my profile before sending me a message?"
    Do not, under any circumstances ever even think about joining. You are kissing your money goodbye the second you access the site.

    Unfortunately (being sad and lonely) i bought 3 months. The single most worrying things is that like a previous post said, its all part of a great multitude of websites. Ive been mailing a couple of genuines on 'myfunbuddy' who are actually on different sites called
    'Sinuk' and 'PlentyOfWeight' and 'cougar' (i didnt get the rest of the name). I think there are some real peeps on there but certainly not many. Also before i joined it said it had half a million members in the london area, as soon as membership had gone through it dropped to just under 15000. Bit of a difference.
    Also you can only cancel membership via phone not email.

    Hindsight is wonderful but we should get these b*****s shut down, all of them.

    Don't understand your problems. The site doesn't rip you off for 6 months membership when you join, it asks if you would like 6 months membership which equates to a smaller monthly amount as you get discount and you obviously hit the button saying yes when you should have hit the button saying NO. Hardly their fault. I'm sure there are far more women then men that's the nature of this type if thing, the fact that there are inactive profiles is good showing that they close down any suspect accounts, other similar sites/niches are probably joining as it's free for women and trying to get guys to visit their own sites. I've been a member on messabout for a couple of months and I've met one person all be it not really my type but I can confirm she was real! Lol
