I did not sign up for this service

Some how Fling got my email address and made a free account for their site. I have never used this site and would never. I think this site is deplorable. How they got my email address is suspect in itself but making an account and then sending me emails is something entirely different. My relationship has suffered due to this sites low practices. The only thing that saved me is when it signed me up, I was in bed with her. They did not use my right zip code or birthday and the email was not validated either. With all these pieces of evidence together, my girlfriend was able to reasonably deduce that I was telling the truth. Then when I tried to delete the account, there was no delete button. I emailed the support but never received a response. I am a business owner who's name and rep is worth its weight in gold so I can't afford to let this lye. I am pursuing legal action against global personals as you read this.

    You are so right, this piece of ### site signed me up as well. Im not digging this! I did a forgot password to see what was going on and those ###s really sent me a password! They should be sued in Class Action LawSuit and tooken down permanantly!

scam

Fling.com has to be the worst $60 I've ever spent. After I registered, I of course decided to try to upload some pictures. I couldn't because the website wasn't working properly and it kept giving me an error any time I tried to upload any picture. Oh well, I thought. I'll just start looking through some profiles, it should be fixed in no time. Now, with a Gold membership I was told I could email members. In all my time with Fling I have found this to be untrue, unless the members themselves actually supplied me with their email (Which is something I'll rant about later). After sending my first message I was told I had reached my message limit for the day. Wow. Unbelievable. So after a while of not being able to upload photos and not being able to send messages to other users, I decided to email customer support and tell them what was wrong with their website and voice my concerns. I never heard back from them, but the messages and photo upload problem seemed to be fixed in about TWO DAYS. Two days is a relatively short period of time, but if you're a major website who provides a service to it's customers for a fee, two days is a long time. Alright, well, no sweat, I have a 3 month membership, plenty of time to find girls to hook up with. So I finally upload some photos and rate them and what not, and the photos say 'Pending' underneath them for a week, and finally I guess they got approved. But to this day my default picture still says 'No Pic' to me. And when I try to verify my photos it tells me I still have not uploaded any photos. Wow. Awesome. So I figure, well, if this website is not letting me put any photos, I'll just write the link to my Myspace in my about me section, and people can go there and take a look at my photos. And i'll write my email address in case anybody wants to email me for pictures or to talk. WRONG. Any website or email address you try to write about in your about me is automatically deleted. Chalk up another suck point for Fling.com. So anyway, during this whole time I am sending messages to other users in my area, doing my thing, you know. But the only responses I ever get back are generic spam messages telling me to pay money to register to some website so I can see more pics of them, or telling me that they don't meet guys unless they view them on their webcam first, which of course, costs money. I've had different members message me back with different generic spam messages but with the SAME email address! WTF? And it's always something at hotmail.com. I was suspicious in the very beginning when I was browsing profiles of girls in my area, and I came across two different profiles with the exact same 'about me' section. Word for ###ing word. Anyway, here are a few of the generic messages I've received back from these fake women. Message 1: Hey (Name censored for privacy, but I will tell you it was my display name letter for letter, number for number), how are you? So whaddya looking for on here. I'll tell you what I want...a really good time LOL! The last couple of dates I went on were very, very bad blind dates. The last guy I went out was telling about my food digesting while I was eating. Ugh!!! To be honest I don't wanna find a 'hubby' on here, I just wanna find someone looking for the same type of no-strings fun that I am. IF thats you and you're interested in me get in touch with me at [protected]@hotmail.com Its a lot easier to check that email at work, if you know what I mean. Well, cant wait to hear from you, maybe we can meet up for oral, I mean coctails soon? LOL!. Message 2: hey...what's up? wanna chat? bizzybee02 at hotmail dot com Message 3: Hi! how r u? wanna chat? bizzybee02 at hotmail dot com *NOTE* Messages 2 and 3 are from different users. Message 4: Nice of you to contact me darling, I´d really like to get to know you, but I can seldom log in here from work. Could you send me an email to SandraTaylor847 at hotmail dot com please? I´d love to get together soon... Here are some of the emails I received back from users when I gave them my email address in a message. Email 1: Hey (censored)! How are you?? Thanks for getting in touch! I am so glad you wrote, actually I was hoping I would hear from you so this is great. So, with regard to hooking up, I did want to tell you it has been a while for me and I really miss being with a man. If you can make some time for me at all today that would be great. Like I said I was thinking a few drinks would be good to help us get a little more comfortable around each other...you never know where it may lead then. Let's just say you have no idea how ready I am for you to break my little dry spell, it really has been a while for me. I did want to address a few things beforehand - just so you know my last STD & HIV tests were about 4 months ago and the results came back clean. You? Also, I insist on condoms (except during oral) and that's non-negotiable for me. That being said, I should also tell you what gets me hot...a few things I don't think I mentioned in my profile are like, I get wet from things like passionate kissing (along with a few well placed fingers), my breasts are very sensitive so almost anything you do will get my nipples hard, I enjoy watching movies before/during sex, I enjoy some use of toys, and I occasionally like being tied up. I'm also open to new suggestions. How about you? What are some of your turn-ons? Well I'm babbling on and blowing my cover a little here but I wanted to get back to you while I had a minute. You can call my cell whenever you want so we can set something up, I posted my number for you (and a bunch more pics!) at my favorite personal site, it's at http://www.newdiscreetflirts.com/becky07 My profile is listed inside that site under 'backsidebec'. I use this site mainly cause a couple of my friends use it and it's discreet and safe. It's definitely much better than most sites I have tried plus it has some great pics of me! I do hope to meet real soon but if it's not today let's definitely do something this week. Call me!! Becky ***The following is a requirement of this website: 'If you are offended by adult material or are not of legal age to view such material, or if you simply would not like to hear from any members from this website, follow this link to be removed:' http://www.newdiscreetflirts.com/subscription.php *End of email* And that website wanted me to pay $20 so they could 'verify my age'. I didn't pay, so I couldn't get in. Email 2: Hi! Are you online? I am at home on my computer. I normally have to share it with two other girls I live with but they went to Mexico together so its just me here this week. If you are on and want to chat let me know. When I am online I am on my blog, so you can find me there. We can even chat there if you want. ttry Stace http://skatergirl85.blogspot.com/ *End of email* That website also requires you to pay to get in. Email 3: (Note: I have no idea who this last person even is, but they still managed to send me an email somehow) Hey what's up, did you get my last email?? I emailed you a few days ago but never heard back. I was wondering if you'de be interested in getting together sometime. I put up my own webpage so if you're interested check out my pics and if you think we have chemistry drop me a line and we can see where things go. Here is my site www.findlocalprofileslive.com and this is the password: sexy (my friend told me to add a password feature so not everyone could see my pics) Well, I hope to hear back from you and we can get together or chat sometime. Talk soon, Kelly My site is intended for a mature audience only. If you are of legal age, or if you are offended by mature material, or if you don't wanna hear from me ever again go to this link: www.findlocalprofileslive.com/options.php *End of email* And every single girl I've messaged has done that exact same thing. Given me that same type of response. So needless to say, I'm utterly disgusted with this website right now, and I sent them an email telling them to go ### themselves and that I'm cancelling my membership. Only problem is, I went to cancel my membership and IT DOESN'T EVEN ###ING WORK! I enter my information and click cancel and then the page just sits there for an hour. I tried hitting stop and refresh and trying again but it did the same thing. It sat there for an hour and then it said 'Page Cannot Be Found' or something like that. Way to ###ing go Fling... Your website is a worthless piece of fuking ###.

    Trying to hook up with someone online is a total waste of money and time. Go to night clubs in your area, you will find a lot of hot girls willing to hook up with you provided you are good looking.

Unauthorized charges for $ 59.95 by GPNETHELP.COM posted n my bank debit account statement on Nov. 30, 2010. They apparently work with billing for a sleezey dating / affairs company called Fling, who I understand may be based in Ft. Lauderdale. Through google, I was able to get a phone # and they gave me another phone # [protected]. That is Fling, who said they couldn't find the charge for me. Obviously, I need to pursue this more diligently, and will close my current debit account. James Brooks Jr.,

I've had a similar experience. I have access to my boyfriends yahoo account. I was deleting spam when I saw the fling email that said thank you for signing up and here is your password. It got worse because the email tells you what date you signed up and we were apart the night he supposedly signed up. I got the password and deleted the email. I signed in and his bday info wasn't right but who is truthful on those kind of sites anyways. It has 5 different options asking what you are interested in like threesomes and online flirting, stuff like that, and 4 of those were checked. He was seeking women and couples. However, to be able to fully use all the websites features you have to pay. My boyfriend did not pay for it and it has no record of his financial info. I've changed around who he was seeking for and he gets the occasional fling spam email. But so far he hasn't opened fling emails or requested his password from fling. If something happens then I'll let you know.

    The same thing has just happened to me. the email asked that i validate my account by clicking on the link. I WAS TOLD DONT, when you do that that allows the ppl on the other end of the email access to any and all account information such as stored passwords, paypal account info, stored credit cards in your computer and so on. The same thing is going on on facebook as well, you can usually tell because for guys it will be a friend request from a really young girl posing and only have one photo in here album and she will be requesting everyone in your friend list. if you have ever downloaded anything and said YES or NO either one, to a sweepstakes thats when any and all emails start coming. all you can do is report them to is spam. If you notice most of the sites that you go to and try and find out how they got your info...there is not even a contact us section or a phone number. Do not open this of any related emails, they are hackers and scammers!!

    Help, I can't figure out how to stop people from taking money from me, but I can take the time to register on a forum to tell everyone how horrible this company is. My credit card fraud brother is super awesome as well!

    I am disappointed with dating sites, very ladies reply and the sites attempt to create business by suggesting a member has made contact so renew subscription to read reply. Visa details are kept and automaticatly renewed each month . It is quite difficult to unsuscribe . Mate 1 is full of scammers and the site does nothing to remedy the situation- why should they, they are getting easy money also from the scammers.

fraud

This is a fraudulent company. They show you pictures from girls in your city, but when you join you find out they are not in your city, they are not even members, they have not been with fling for years. You can join, pay a gold membership and still cannot talk to anyone that also doesn't have a paid membership. They keep removing money from your account after you cancel.. DO NOT JOIN ANYTHING FROM FLING.COM

I started reciving these e-mails from [protected]@Fling.com. I have no idea how they have my e-mail and why they keep sending me these stupid dating things. I am a married woman who has no intrest in dating or "flinging" with anyone. I first tried to reply back about a month ago with a polite message asking not to send me anymore of these messages. since then I have recived at least ten to fifteen. I tried to go to their web site to contact customer service and their is no way to without out actually signing up for their web site. Now im furious and dont know how to make them stop. I am not a member so i have no idea how they got my info and i find it extreamly upsetting to feel harrassed by this web site. They need to and must be stopped!!!
