OK, I am about to finish my month on Mate1. The negative comments continue to be true. Let me say that I signed on to this five years ago, and it was NOT like this. I did meet people. NOW, it is ONLY a den of porn stars, and marriage scams. I found only one person that was where they said they were, and she was in Malaysia. Mere in Ghana, Nigeria or Malaysia but claimed they were in the US, on their profile. If you take one line of their profile and put it into Google, you find that very often that same line is associated with many pics on different sites. I blocked 40 people who directed you to porn sites or were clear romance scams. After canceling, I did spend the last few days to see if I could find a real person. Just anyone, even less than desirable. I could not find more than two in a month, one was in Ghana and the other was in Malaysia. They seem nice, although you never know. Again, five years ago, this was a neat site, now it is just horrible. It should be shut down, it is a scam.
I see now that they do not charge women at all. I watched many of these scammers just change names and show up in my face, again. They should charge a small fee for women if they want to regain a semblance of credibility. When I paid for this, my bank, called me. They wondered if someone had accessed my account. since they are sure this is a scam site. ( That may be related to the overcharging people complain about. I have not had that yet. ) A couple of things, you can tell that they are working girls if the age range they are looking for, is bizarre, for instance it is often 30-90. If they put their email in the profile that is a sign. They do not have to pay, and so, it is not like they are trying to avoid paying by putting their email there. Again, I could not find one person who was in the country, not one. This is just horrible. ( I will remain on here to respond to what are clearly people who troll this in support of this scam site and post the names of the blocked people and other data if necessary. )
I logged off, and the month for which I paid ended, I am not sure if I can post the names of the 40 profiles I blocked. I will try to do so if challenged. Finally, they say that they will ban these people, but they never do so. Not once, each time they kept their names and continued or changed their names. Now, often they would delete the picture they were using.
