Beware of Scams
A lot of people tell us they've been contacted by scammers claiming to be models on our site
They are lying
If they say they work for us they are lying
The best thing to do if you are contacted by a scammer is do not talk to them AT ALL
Ignore them and they will eventually leave you alone
Do NOT attempt to "bait" them!
These scams have gotten scary sophisticated, and some scammers are working for terrorist organizations
If you talk to scammers, even if you know it is a scam, you are putting yourself at risk
Here is one person's story:
I was contacted and asked to transfer money in order to meet up with a model featured in this site. The person she told me to email claims to be a manager with your company. I am trying to determine whether I've been frauded.
We asked this person for more information (we've kept certain specific details confidential to protect this individual)
I had a membership on [some site], she added me. Then asked me if I had Skype. Asked me to meet up at a hotel but said that because she's a porn star that she has private security and they needed to verify my identity. She's looking for a fuckbuddy. So she asked me for first name last name email address phone number etc. nothing like a bank account numbers or Social Security numbers. Then she asked me to pay [some amount of money] fee to buy a "gate pass" she even said that she doesn't actually make any money off of it that it's just to book the room and handle administrative stuff. I put in my first payment she said he wouldn't let her pay and my gate pass was gonna be [in]active unless I paid another [some amount of money]. At this point I was pretty sure I was being scammed so I tried to be smart and not give her the tracking number until I got to the hotel that way I could get a room number and immediately verify if I was scammed to call and cancel the transfer. She stalled for like a half hour and then by the time I got through to [credit union] my money was gone.
Another email recently received:
"They recently contacted me on Skype. She stated that she was from Canada and live now in Ghana with her grand mother, but want to go to the US. I did not give her my phone# but I did receive a call from Ghana. They ask for money at which time I tell them that I was not going to send anything because I know I am talking to a scammer. I do not know how the so called atty got my cell # but they also hack the crap out of my Skype."
They most likely got the cell number by hacking their Skype.
It's also possible that their computer was hacked, in that case who knows what kind of personal info they could have gotten: logins to online banking, credit card numbers, info that can be used for identity theft etc.
When initial tactics fail, it is common for scammers to resort to blackmail, threats, hacking etc.
"There is someone from Florida using Andi Lands photos claiming she is Angelina Turessa, she was a porn model. She isn't doing that anymore but she is using andis' pics and when, I ask where they come from she begins to threaten me."
This is why it is extremely important to not talk to them at all
If you are being threatened, go to the police immediately.
They don't always ask for money. They might ask for clothes, Steam cards, gift cards, plane tickets etc. Remember, any tangible good can be either sold or bartered with. Plane tickets are especially scary because these are professional criminals and they might be looking to actually use those tickets.
"Hello. I've been talking to a to a girl that has this girl pictures in Ghana. She keeps telling that really her. She doesn't ask me for money. But ask me to buy her new clothes. It just sucks seeing a beautiful ladies picture being used to get money out of men in the states. I have pictures that you can see they messed with. I just want to know if [name removed to protect target] is really her. She told me that she live with her moms mother there. And her Sister is in college there."
If you are unsure if you are the target of a scam, err on the side of caution and assume that it is a scam
Most emails ask whether or not someone claiming to be a model is really her. We don't work with models so we can't tell you one way or the other BUT we've heard from thousands of men asking about different girls so do the math:
What are the odds that hundreds of different girls left their comfortable homes in First World Nations to move somewhere like Ghana? You do not need to email us. YES IT IS A SCAM
