Overview

Being a free member of FlirtLocal.com we received 106 emails since we signed up which was back in October 2013. From our experience and supporting evidence we will show and prove that the large majority of those emails and women emailing us were fake. This site is associated with a number of fraudulent dating sites that we have covered that include, MeetWives.com, XCheaters.com and HornyAffairs.com.

Where Are All The Real Girls?

When we first signed up with FlirtLocal.com we were taken back with the amount of very attractive looking women on the site. Almost every single female was a 9 out of 10. People reading this who have no experience with online dating sites might think that they hit the jackpot with all the horny looking local ladies looking to meet you in person. But like they say if it sounds too good to be true or in this case if it looks to be looks too good to be true then it is. So what exactly is going on here? This website operates in the same fraudulent fashion that other sites from the same dating company uses. The fraud in this particular case is that these women are not real people looking to meet you for a date or anything more than that.

It may come as a shock to you however this website along with countless others are involved in the fabrication of fraudulent fake female profiles. The reason they create fake dating profiles is a two-fold answer. The first reason they create fake profiles is that Flirt Local does not have enough real women using it. No man is going to join a dating site if there are 99 men for every women on the site. This is the exact problem that this dating service faces. Their solution to this problem is to start lying and deceiving their users by posting phony female profiles. The second reason for the phony women is to lure men into trying to contact these women at which time they are meant with "Upgrade to message" (where you need to buy a membership) alert before they can communicate with any girls on the site.

The evidence below shows just a small sample of the phony girls on the site. Do you really think that women like this need to be on a hook up site to meet men willing to have sex with them?

Fake Messages

Like we mentioned above we received over 100 emails,106 to be exact from women on FlirtLocal.com. The problem is that the emails are all fake! When we first signed up last year we started getting emails within mere minutes. This scenario happened over and over getting emails from hot looking girls. The emails poured in even though the profile we created for this investigation was empty. No photos were uploaded to our profile and we didn't put any info in our profile.Why then are these girls contacting us? First off the girls are not real as discussed in the previous paragraph.  The second reason that we are getting all these emails is because when we tried to respond to the emails we received the "Upgrade to message" alert pop up. Basically we couldn't reply back to anyone without upgrading and buying a $29.95 monthly membership. That is the main reason they send phone emails to members of their service.

Hiding In Plain View

Sometimes the scam is hiding in plain view and it's as easy as reading the terms and conditions (section I6) of the site to see what the web site is up to. Some of the things they admit to doing are truly unbelievable but they are true since they are directly located on the site's terms and conditions. FlirtLocal discusses in detail exactly how they run their business, this includes how they use fake profiles, fake emails and how they deceive people. This is a irrefutable evidence that cannot be denied. The first thing they admit to doing is posting fictitious profiles. So what this means as I mentioned above in previous paragraphs is that the actually create fake dating profiles that have photographs of variouswoman and all types of personal information that are completely false. They also admit to "generating or responding to communications by means of automated programs". This means that they actually send and reply to emails using automated computer software programs that are created specifically to make it appear as if you are receiving emails from real women. However in reality you're receiving emails from computer software programs and not real people. They even admit to employing people to chat with you and basically pretend to be interested in you to entice you into upgrade. It's amazing that they talk about this on their site and it's basically hiding in plain view.

Final Decision:

This site use every tactic in the book to trick you into paying for a membership. Sadly your chance of meeting legitimate women on this site are very minimal. With all the corroborating evidence there really is no reason to register as a member on FlirtLocal.

    • Sean says:

      I just told bank I didn't make the charge. Why take a chance. I had my money back in my acct 10 minut s later. 

      • Admin says:

        Perfect Sean, it’s as easy at that to get your money back. Call your bank, but don’t lie to your bank, be honest with them or you are doing fraud then.

    flirtlocal is a big time scam

  • puregamer 93 says:

    I’m new to all this but I’ve learned quickly most of these online dating sites are scams. But if I join 1 and I’m not sure if its real or not (a scam) site to be safe and minimize the money spent on such sites I will use a prepaid credit card with a preloaded amount of money on it that you can find anywhere just get the 1 that’s around the amount you need and use that I don’t use my real credit card cause if it is a scam and they do try to take more money then they can’t cause it only has a set amount your real credit card if you use it then its a real pain to get them to stop the charges from recurring. So keep your money and use the prepaid credit cards instead they work exactly the same as your reg credit card but with a ton less money and no high interest rate to pay it back 🙂

    • Brian says:

      I have been on this site for 2 weeks lots of emails  and photos .I but I am sure it is a scam  Beware do not upgrade and Get scammed  out of your money. I am sure if they get your money. they will drop you like a dime.

  • chris says:

    before reading this I had signed up for membership and you are correct in saying that this site is a scam, over 109 flirts/matches and everytime I sent a message I never got a response except for twice and that was to sign up for a different dating site

  • Raymond Menard says:

    your first clue is the out of USA address  then your relpy is not delivered to the woman it is intersepted.

  • Mark says:

    Its a scam alright they wanted to do a proof id when i tried all my same details it kept rejecting it now they recon there taking $300 to $500 a week out of my bank how do i stop them?

    • Admin says:

      contact your bank!!

    • keith says:

      close your bank account mark doit know and fast tell your bank and as this has not gone with your permission this should be refunded if your bank are nice but you must also go to the police and report it as theft

    • Zorro says:

      First, contact your bank and report the fraudulent activity. They will immediately cancel the card and reimburse the amount of money lost. 

      They will open an investigation to determine if you are trying to defraud them. In the same process they will investigate the perpetrators and, if unlawful activity is identified, they will prosecute to the fullest. Understand that this latter part rarely occurs. For the most part the crooks are not apprehended. But if by chance they happen to detain one it is a happy day.

  • Richard says:

    Hi,

    Firt off, I thought the site might be fair dinkum, but now I know it is a scam – I've been thinking about it and I wondered at one stage if it was a front for a police operation, but I suppose not – if the police contact me, I will get back here with an update of what went down.

    I do suggest to everyone that they view all dating sites which ask for money as a scam – the only probable safe ones, are the free ones, which connect like minded people together, without a price involved. Never, never spend money – but if you do, never with your Mastercard or Visa, do it through PayPal or a similar payment option which keeps your Banking details private to you.

    If you paid out and want the money back, go through your bank. You can stop automatic payments from there and if the money taken was fraudulent, you might be able to claw it back, via your bank, because you have been scammed and like someone said, these girls are simply too beautiful, to not be getting dates and so on, to need to make contact with you or me – we get the not so beautiful ones, and you see plenty of them in various shapes and sizes around shopping centres and in the industrial hub of the city where you live……….

    As a male, I found with online dating sites in Aussie, I was getting 2 to 3 responses to my profile each week, one or two, I had a look at in person, but the women concerned put pix of themselves when they were years younger and they did not look at all like their pix when I met them – if they were dishonest from the outset, what hopes then of a truthful relationship with me – no thanks.

    If you do make a date, watch her eyes, if they are everywhere around where you meet and not on you – she is not interested in you and I recommend you don't touch her with a barge pole.

    My female companion, who I eventually met, did not post her picture and said she had lost 40kg, which I thought meant that she would be skinny, so I was floored when this huge woman got out of her SUV – I said from the outset I was not interested in her physically and we have agreed that I will look online for the occasional sex date, however, that said, in all other ways she was ideal and after 2 days in my home, in one of my spare bedrooms (we don't have sex (shudder) and she has her own bedroom and I have mine, I asked her to move in with me, which she eventually did and I am now so happy with my life and with her – so "if" you eventually meet someone, be upfront with your expectations and don't knock her back if sex is going to be an issue, you can always punt around to try and get that elsewhere – a really good friend of the opposite sex (if that is how you swing) and company, is paramount, especially as you get older, instead of remaining single and hellishly lonely.

    My friend was flooded with men looking for company and sex referred to her from the dating site – she had hundreds to choose from whereas, as I mentioned earlier, I only got 2 or 3 replies each week.

    It made no sense to me at the time, but now it does – these dating sites get loads of men who sign up, but very few women and since only the woman knows how many contacts she gets (and never us men) I would say the chances of actually making a connection through online dating with a woman is remote, even when the dating site is kosher. Few women, loads of men.

    So how do you meet women in real time now, when everything is electronic and computerized and "women", if they exist, all seem to have predetermined ideas of their ideal mate and if you don't fit their profile, you don't get a contact – probably meet someone on the hoof at the local pub, or social club, or in the agony columns of the local rag (newspaper singles columns), or at least where women congregate – cooking classes at your local school in the evenings, would be a great contact place and you get to eye the goods first, too and see if a date is possible and learn to chat them up and don't set your sights too high, lol.

    If you do get a screw, make sure she is on the pill or use a condom – the last thing you want is a kid and maintenance for the next 18 to 20 years, here in Aussie, deducted from your pay packet before you even see it – I had a vasetomy years ago, so I can't have kids anyway and the women I've met since had their kids and had their tubes tied, so there was no worry about that.

    Good luck all of you who read this far down – any women who read this blurb and want to chat – [email protected] first and on to my real ID, once I'm satisfied you are real and genuine and not another computer generated gal.

    Scam, scam, scam.  just realized it.  Did not lose any $$ tho.  (lucky me), but got same exact responses from 4 or 5 girls I responded to via email.  Different girls gave me the same name to look for one I sign up for "free" lifetime use!  BS  scam, scam  don't get fooled.

  • […] site). In this particular investigation we got redirected to FlirtLocal.com. This is a site that we have investigated and exposed for fraudulent behavior in another previous investigation. But why then is LocalFlirtBuddies.com promoting FlirtLocal.com? […]

  • Tina says:

    My boyfriends email was signed up to this site. It was an incomplete profile, but he received about six messages In a week. After seeing that he had an account on this site I confronted him. He swears he didn’t sign up for any site, especially that one. I pointed out it was he email. He tried to log on, but couldn’t, but was able to access it through the message emails. He continues to deny ever signing up for it. Ive been having a hard time believing him, but after reading above, Im thinking maybe I should believe him.

    • Admin says:

      Tina,

      I doubt he signed up as I have had the same type of thign many times. Thye get your email address and then make a fake profile for you, it’s all a trick to get people to sign up on the site.

       

    • Mandy says:

      Tina,

      I agree with the Admin's response.  This EXACT scenario just happened to me and my partner.  Finally, I came to the conclusion he wasn't utilizing that site because his very public, well established for decades, email was his handle.  No other info, pics or outgoing correspondece under the profile.

       

  • Suchaschmoe says:

    Read into site, most all from god awful named countries..  there all fixed, stocked with scammers, unbelievable mockery of the American male ego, my God who – who falls for Any (no tell) hook up or dating site on the web?

      Yes it's all written in the "interesting parties email, The mundaneness – repetitive – uncircumstantial – verbiage used is an "X" marking the bad deed..

    all are no places to visit unless you like loosing at gambling..  thanks

  • peter says:

    Just to say I was completely scammed by flirtlocal.com, was tricked into paying by fabricated invitations from attractive women, and then nothing, not a single response. what's more, by deselecting the repeat subscription, the $29.99 paid up membership was completely neutralised, i.e. you could not even send a message, so its a double whammy. Hopefully I have got out and cancelled everything before paying any more! I wish i had come across your report and warning before going into this

  • DOMUS71 says:

    THIS GIRLS ARE PAID FOR POSSING NAKED OR HAVING A BRIEF INTERCOURSE W SOMEONE, E-MAILS YOU RECEIVE ARE COPIES OF COPIES OF COPIES, MAYBE THERE ARE SOME OF THE HOOKERS WRITING FROM TIME TO TIME A NEW EMAIL, AFTER THAT THEY USE IT AGAIN AND AGAIN. ALL SIMILAR SITES, SHOW THE SAME MODUS OPPERANDI AND EVEN THEY SHARE THE PICS OF IDIOTS LIKE ME, YOU WILL NEVER TALK TO A REAL WOMAN, (BESIDE THESE ARE HOOKERS, WISE WOULD BE LEGALIZE PROSTITUTION, AND THE GIRLS WOULD MAKE MORE MONEY, AND YOU GET SOMETHING IN RETURN). FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE, AND I DON'T EXCLUDE MYSELF, THIS IS A SIGN OF THE TIMES WE ARE LIVING IN, AND ALL THIS MUST END IN THE WORST WAY POSSIBLE, RECENTLY SAW A DOCUMENTARY SHOWING HOW THIS "HOR GIRLS " ARE RECRUITED, THEY PERFORM FOR 6 MONTHS IN AVERAGE, DURING THAT TIME THEY MAINTAIN INTERCOURSE IN A DIRTY AND HUMILLIATING WAY, AND AFTER THAT KICK OUT, THE GIRL WHOSE HISTORY THEY FOLLOW, LIVES IN A SMALL TOWN IN A CENTER STATE, HAVE BOY FRIEND (THIS GUY IS A FUCKING FAGGOT SEEING HER FIANCEE SCREWED BY TENS OF MOTHER F, AND SAY NOTHING, MOTHER DOES NOTHING JUST TELL HER TO USE CONDOMS, SHE DOES NOT EVEN IS AWARE IS A FORM OF PROSTITUTION AND EXPLOITATION BY A CRIMINAL (CRIMINAL IN FACT NOT LEGALLY), SO SHE THINKS IS A "JOB" like any other (CAN SOMEBODY REALIZE THE GRADE OF STUPIDITY OF THIS BABE), RESUMING: AFTER SCREWING TENS OF LOW LIVING MF, SHE WAS KICKED OUT, AND ALL SHE MAKE WAS 2500 $, LAW NOT ONLY TOLERATE THIS BUT EVEN PROTECT CRIME, US IS DEAD, WAS NOT DEFEATED BY JAPS OR GERMANS, BUT BY HIS OWN VICE, RIP

  • Richard says:

    Hey everyone… I was just messaged by a supposed date from flirt local!!!! She is on the site registered under ""Sounan 37""" she gave me the name Lisa, with a email address enclosed ([email protected]).

    I live in Vancouver, Canada and this person claims to live in the same area as well !!! I haven't been on this site for over a year…. when I tried it ,I used a pre~paid credit card.

    I was wondering if anyone else has been approached by her ,or if she is another victim of this scam???

    • Mike Stone says:

      Richard, I received a message from  "[email protected]" on the site. "SteamyDates",  where I have a registered free account (not paid for). She claims to reside in my area (Los Angeles) and goes by the name "miacu.30". This site no doubt is operated by the same crooks!

      • Rich says:

        Lisastan same "[email protected] only she is in Denver Colorado on a site called Passion Desire.

  • Keith says:

    100% total scam.

    Do a reverse image scan of a profile photo on TINEYE and more often then not is off a porn site and totally fake.

  • Rick says:

    You are right. A lot of websites are scams. Found out early on. One tried to rip me of for 29.95 on my cresit card. Bank automatically canceled card and called me to tell me. Got lots of replys and no further communictions from the women. Knew each site was a scam when the money requet came up. Cancelled out of all and have an empty mail box and no chances of viruses to damage new computer.

  • Paul says:

    I signed up to this as I was messaged by a couple of local girls, they were not exactly model material but nice enough for me and since I payed to become a premium member to reply after being aloud a couple of free messages I was lured in also because they didn't display the upto date prices of course my card kept being declined, it took two days just to upgrade and in that time this one girl messaged me asking if I had lost interest, so once I finally got on the site I send my replies etc but nothing back at all and their support team keep telling me to clear my cookies and things .like that and when I asked them what their complaints procedure is they suddenly went quiet. I'm very disgruntled by this because I have just come out of a relationship last year that didn't end well and I have never believed in dating sites as I prefer to meet someone in person, however as I have been struggling to get over it a friend said why not give it a go so I did and now I feel worse than I did before becauser they have just taken my money and played with my heart, what if I was on the edge and that was the straw that broke the cammels back and topped myself on the strenght of it, I bet they don't even considder things like that, but hey I'm ok I'll just muddle on, the bank actually rang me today about them and they say they can get my money back so if this has happened to you contact your bank.

  • Frank says:

    Definately a bogus site, the minute O signed up the e mails and flirts from girls stopped. I immediately disputed the charge with my Bank and they told me they couldn't do nothing about it so I closed my account to avoid any reccuring charges. It's a shame nothng can be done about rip off sites like this

    Hello everyone in the future open any photo with Chrome right click on it and search for it with Chrome if theres doubles its bound to be fake

  • Michael says:

    Just to add, out of fun, I created 2 different accounts and if I bring up a search, the complete set of girls are completely different in my town on both accounts. I can't find a girl on my first account anywhere in search on my second vice versa. 

  • Michael says:

    These people tried and tried to scam me. Yesterday, I got into an hour long, 12 e-mail conversation with a "woman". I finally busted her when she said she would meet me in the lobby of a hotel that had closed 10 years ago. Finally she said "You win. I give up ". Yhen she sent a ?  and I didn't hear anymore from her. 

  • Steve says:

    Ya I'm a sucker too I wasn't sure then I bought in and sure enough I feel scammed, stupid me, well at least it was a prepaid card, and it will run out.Still though how can I trust anything

  • alan R.Large says:

    Yes , this site lured me with lots of gorgeous women doing lots of nasty things we dream about and say they live in your town.Got me for a sign up fee and then nothing from no-one.I ragged on their comments column for several days about it being a scam and their erection pills were worthless- (thankfully did not go that far )But they kicked me off the sight.Least I got in several days of bad advertising of them on their own site.So I guess I give them their monies worth of scam back at them.I'd suggest everyone else to do the same.Why isn't there internet police for this crap.This was last year and they are still operating Gives the whole internet thing a bad image.

    Randy.
