someone has been using my pictures as a fake profile

I received a random phone call from someone didn't know who he was and he told me he got my number from off of Skout. I never heard of that app. He then started sending me pictures of myself from the app and messages that someone has been sending to him. I would ask if the page is deleted and my number is blocked from the app. And removed and never added again

there is a fake account or accounts on your website and this person is posting pictures of people including myself and he is ruining out reputation and saying things that are inappropriate this needs to be dealt with i want his IP address blocked or i will be taking this to the police and i will sue this company for not dealing with bullying and not having things in place to stop people from posting things like that on their buzz feeds.

this is the account of the real person who is having their identity on the internet slandered and abused. dont block this account..

a skout member tricked me in being a sugar daddy and hacked my bank account

I was on the friend/dating app Skout and this older gentleman, his username only said John had messaged me and said he was looking for a sugar baby and that I looked like I would be a good fit for him and that he will give me a weekly allowance of $300. He only had one photo in his profile and it showed he was from some part in Nebraska or somewhere around that part of the U.S. I just needed to give him my bank account information, and he promised it would be in my account the next day, but he was sending more than then the $400 I talked him up to giving me. He sent me $1000.34 I should have known by this that something was up and that he needed me to send about $600 of it to his business associate because he was travelling. I first went to the ATM and withdrew $400, I had to do two separate transactions due to the limit able to be taken out in one transaction.So I kept asking him for his associate's information and he would not give it to me until I would be at a Western Union and until he received it also. I told him well I would feel more comfortable for sending it online through Western Union, he said no cause I have had issues before transferring online. He kept saying that I was making him mad and to not make him send his FBI friends. By here I knew for a fact that he could not be legit, but I still was scared for my life and just did what he asked. So I filled out the send money form at Western Union and the lady asked me a couple questions and I admitted that I was sending it in place of someone else. So she told me that she would need a lot of that person's information, the guy was not believing me whatsoever, then he finally said forget about sending the money now I want you to go buy 6 $100 iTunes gift cards from Walmart and saying that I should be on my way to Walmart. I had went to a different store and purchased $200 in iTunes gift cards and I did check my bank account and it looked fine. Then when I went to purchase the other $400 in gift cards, my card was declined and I went back to my house and looked at my account and it showed I was -$552 and the mobile deposit he had made was no longer showing at the time for me. So I immediately called my bank's number and spoke to them and they walked me through what I needed to do and helped me with a few other things, and told me to make a police report about the fraud. So I called the local authorities and they sent over an officer, he took down my story and asked me for the number that the guy was texting me from. He then gave me the report number, I went to my bank's branch and told them about it along left the police report number with them, and they told me that it could be 2 days until all the money that I was able to deposit back in and all the transactions go through to see what happens with my account, and to call the customer support and supply them with the police report number and that if any overdraft fees occur that they should drop them for me. What does suck is the little bit of money I did have in my account before this happened doesn't even exist!! I definitely have learned from this and am very upset and heartbroken with myself for going along with this! I definitely do not believe in sugardaddies or that industry at all, and don't feel using online dating/friend meet up sites anymore. This guy is still occasionally messaging me and is upset with me.

    You fell for a scam. Why you’d accept money from a stranger is beyond me. Then to stupidly buy things for him? He’d send the fbi? So what? You did nothing wrong but be stupid.

person

On skout for iPhone, met someone with profile name "jane lee" (Pic provided below). Ultimately we communicated on other platforms and they - unbeknownst to me - video taped me doing vulnerable graphic things. And then the extortion attempts, threats to ruin my life, post on social media and share to my friends and family. SKOUT should have flagged her and prevent her from being able to log on.

photo

Hello, I keep trying to post a photo and it keeps getting deleted. There is nothing inappropriate about my photo.

Many girls on this app have photos up with almost their nipples sticking out. Also see through shirts where you can see their nipples and in thongs where their whole butt is showing.

So i don't understand why mine keeps getting deleted. It shows a lot of cleavage but nowhere close to my nipples. I have attached the photo to this message.

skout fraud and extortion

On skout for android, met someone with profile name "jane lee" (Pic provided below). Ultimately we communicated on other platforms and they - unbeknownst to me - video taped me doing vulnerable graphic things. And then the extortion attempts, threats to ruin my life, post on social media began. Whoever made that profile is an extortionist, a fraud and a criminal. Please look into it.

Thanks.

Greg mills

Ps - the two pics provided are the profile page and then, the extortionist returned to skout after threatening on other platforms, and threatened to post the videos on youtube.

fill phone number.

I don't see why I have to fill out this box as a human being you should have a option if you want to put in your phone number so you could get more personal or we should have an option not to it's like you guys are forcing us to put our personal phone number I already have my information on my profile why do I have to put in my phone number just to verify that I'm human I'm freaking verifying that I'm human complaining to you about this [censor] I think that's enough to verify that I'm human. Is ridiculous it seems like it's mandatory like I have to like you're putting a gun to my [censor]ing head just to fill out my [censor]ing phone number. Yes I am upset excuse all the curses but I'm very upset about this whole week on this app and now you guys ask me for my freaking phone number.

fill phone number.

rude users

One day on Skout a few weeks ago, someone made a post and I commented on it (not really saying anything bad, I was just stating my opinion) and these two users (Jacob and Boywar27) starting attacking me out of the blue saying that I was ugly, and that I will die alone and that I don't have a boyfriend because I can't do anything right, etc. I screenshotted and posted two pictures of their comments down below.

receiving pictures

Ever since I started using skout on my laptop when someone goes to send me a picture it tells them I'm not accepting pictures. How do I fix that it is really annoying I love the app but not that and I have no idea how to fix it. Please help me fix it. I can send them pictures but they can't send me pictures and I don't understand why it's doing that.

I can't login due to the ask of a phone number. I put in my phone number and it says it's a none valied phone number but it obviously is

My email is [protected]@gmail.com and please email me for help. I loved in before with no problem but then I kept going to this screen asking for my phone number. My phone number didn't work for some reason, so I uninstalled the app and reinstalled it but that just seemed to make it worse because now I can't even log in. The screen said if I got the page by accident, then to contact support.

I have been blocked.

I have been blocked for no reason. My name is Tanna on the datimg site. My email is [protected]@icloud.com. I think somebody turned me in falsely because I had them deleted from the site. There are a lot of scammers on the site and I turned them in. I've been on the site for almost 2 months with no complaints. Then all the sudden I get blocked. If you think about it that makes no sense. I really enjoy SKOUT and would like to be unblocked.
Could you please check into this matter?
Thanks,
Tanna
