Problem Site - Currently Being Investigated by C.A.P.A.There were emails sent to me concerning (3) different sites shown below. We have written Media Reports on each site separately, and have found them to be extremely simular in nature. We have coupled the links to our reports below. You will find that not only "Darla", but now "Jenny" is also advertizing sites through her emails.
Some of these pages may "look alike", but are NOT! See the Emails below!
THE SITE ABOVE SEEMS TO BELIEVE...
That we the consumers are blind! Can we read between the lines? Of course WE CAN! Below is a Sample of One Sly Tactic used by this site just to get you in, and of course PAY for your supposed ignorance!!!
Below is another email that was sent to me personally, that I had responded to just to see what would happen. You will immediately see in this email that it is very vague. This should be a WARNING to you, because although she had my email address from a Personal Ad she found somewhere on the web, she still knew nothing personally about me! When I went to the website that her picture was supposed to be found... of course... in order to find her picture, one would have to PAY with your credit card to get in! Asking me questions and showing interest leads one to believe that she's really interested. But again, only to get you to sign up... Ultimately!
Some of these sites will offer you many things. Even a FREE year of membership. However, to sign up, you will still have to give them... guess what? YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION!!! We feel that their intended trick is that after a year... and beyond your awareness, they will ultimately charge your credit card, and without you remembering what you did (a year later), they will be taking out credit card payments from your banking account because your FREE year has EXPIRED! By that time, you may have found some one, or trashed your computer to buy another one, and MAY HAVE forgotton about that site completely. Be aware... they will still continue to take your money, and don't really care if you are aware of it or not!
I am wondering "how many thousands" of these emails are being sent out to unsuspecting consumers.Here is Jenny's email as I received it:
(SLY EMAIL TACTIC -- READ BETWEEN THE LINES!) See these three site pages that have everything in common with each other!
Are they owned and/or operated by the same people? I wonder!!!

This person knows exactly what they are doing, and because she seems "separate" from the site (by her email address - appears legitimate) however, that is the sly way to put this sort of scam forth.
Keep in mind that if someone really wants you to see their picture, or wants you to really see their personal ad, they will make it easy for you to find that information. In this case, you can see where this one has let me!
Although it may "appear" that sneaky-match.com is not involved here, simply use your common sense and come to your own conclusion!
Consumer Abuse - Protection Agency considers this site to use sly means and tactics to draw innocent consumers into their web. Therefore we do NOT recommend that this site is worthy of your trust, effort, or money!
The Consumer Abuse - Protection Agency realizes that filling out forms in length is time consuming and can be at times very stressful, only to find at the end, that all is for nothing unless you PAY FIRST... and then start all over again! This is NOT the legitimate and fair way to do business with the public, and therefore we are here to receive and verify your complaints and to put our results on our special media reports to be exposed for public review.
