Premium number scammers

*arah-Jane By *arah-Jane   profile verified by photo  over a year ago

@private mail, +add as contact

We have a problem with people joining as women and asking you to call premium numbers to speak with them. If you see new profiles with numbers starting 070 (usually) asking you to call them, please report the profiles and don't call unless you want to be ripped off!!

Techies are working behind the scenes to manage this problem!

We're also logging all the numbers they post and we'll be passing them onto phonepayplus the premium number regulator. If you have been tricked by any of these folks we'd advise you to do the same

Report to phonepayplus and your network see what they say. You shouldn't have to pay because you've been mislead and these folks are breaking all sorts of rules

I got stung by one years ago, so I've reported each time someone has advertised an 070 number. Really annoys me when they try to sting genuine & unsuspecting people.

"do admin respond to pm's from members?"

It depends upon the subject matter of your message. Admin do not enter into correspondence with you after you have reported someone, but they do review the information from you and others, and take appropriate action, if needs be.

its not the only problem this site is having....what about profiles that are fake and stand out a mile off, i think that after 6 months everbody should be given the choice to either be photo verified or there profile removed,something needs to be done to improve this site before it is finished due the the timewasters,fakes,picture collectors etc.

"I'm not photo verified but I am genuine and had a few meets.

we've been on a couple of sites that have literally been killed stone dead by African scammers (yes they do get onto these sites too) the inevitable fakes and the timewasters as well.

A happy medium on how to prove how genuine and real you are should be found, photo verification along with "I've met them" verifications sounds good! After all how can you fake a foursome LOL or MMF/FFM threesomes! Real in the flesh meetings in our view is the most obvious and best way of proving you are real. The fakes and timewasters really do engender a feeling of mistrust in people! A simple code of conduct could be introduced it might be hard to get everyone to agree but then no one agrees on photo verification! Personally if Mrs R and I were to meet a person then that would be the best form of proving they are the correct gender and actually exist!

There is no simple answer to dealing with the large number of fakes, I assume admin will take into account the number of complaints about individual profiles before deleting them?

Rant over sorry for saying this

Agree 100% nearly everyone who bangs on about photo verification have zero feedback as far as physical meets are concerned! They seem to think it makes them more genuine! We have meets and feedback but are fed up with the number of no shows we get!

On any site you will get fakes and scammers, some are very easy to spot as they use the same template but it is down to the members here to make the report if they know it is a scam.

But i whish people would show up for meets they have arranged or let me know they are not going to turn up.

It seems now that there Re at least 2 or 3 of these 070 numbers popping up. It really does ruin things for us genuine ones out there!!! We have enough to contend with dealing with time wasters and collectors. But keep up the good work and boot them out but I have a feeling this will go on for some time.

Please can you keep this thread live - is it possible to pm this to all users? I'd hate it for more people to be ripped off!!

We always avoid mobile numbers in profiles! A bit too blatant, very much like the African Scammers who place email addies in their profiles! Wonder if SJ has thought about censoring phone numbers in profiles? It would cut them dead!

Fair dos. It is a real shame when you get this happening on a site, bit similar to cam girls etc directing you to a site where you supposedly get free verification from a credit card and suddenly find yourself spending cash in bongo bongo land etc!

Best advice is if it looks too good to be true (exotic photos) then in all probability it is.

No its a new scam technique to make you think it's just a mobile, they get you to ring them but while you think you're just talking dirty to a woman on her mobile it's actually a very pricey masturbation session over the phone They need reporting as soon as you see the first three 070 digits.

Stay safe, don't take any chances.

Other scammers include tax office and nearly every government dept any no that starts 0845 they get cut of and if you one of the 20% of population that no longer has a land line (or a b and w tv or twin tub washing machine) 0800 nos just as bad

there are also a couple of profiles which have got some very good pictures as their profile pic.

I'm not saying that people with good pictures aren't genuine, but I get a bit suspicious if I can see that these pictures are pulled from adult TGP galleries or are listed on several other sites.

It is possible , but I wont be contacting them.

Another scam is to ask users to buy phone credit for a user before they meet you. They ask you to purchase a ukash voucher for £10 and for you to text them the voucher number sayong they will meet you... Its a scam.. They will.not turn up.. Easy to spot because they only put uk as their location so when you first make contact with them rhey make out they are from same town.

Have done a little research via Ofcom.

This problem seems to relate specifically 070.... numbers, which is defined as a 'Follow Me' type of service and can cost anything from 30p to £1.50 per minute from another mobile number, plus a possible setup charge.

From what I can see ALL other 07.... prefix's are standard mobile numbers.

Anything that starts 08, 09 or 070 is likely to be a bit dodgy and cost you a load of cash. Even worse if you call from a mobile phone as the mobile operators charge a an extortionate amount for accessing these number ranges. Some are over 35p minute extra because you are using a mobile.

Another thing that was mentioned was an E-mail address on a new females status....this is not normally how women do things so you can be almost certain that they will be trying to get you away from the site to give you their premium number or ask you for money....be wary of doing this and report if you can.

"07 is not a premium rate number in the uk all premium rate numbers start 09 all mobile numbers start 07 "

Just to refresh previous points made (to save any newbies reading the whole thread)- You're right ALL 'Premium' rate numbers begin with 09, and ALL mobile numbers begin with 07. There is one exception however in that numbers prefixed with 070... are classed as a 'Follow me' service and the charges can be as high as Premium rate services.

There's also fake Mistresses joining looking for submissive men. They start chatting with you leading you on only leading to "join this website and become a full paying member" and then I assume you never hear from them again. Obviously fakes connected to these paying sites maybe looking for commission for making us subs join! Where are all the genuine people these days?

Yes 070xx 09xx 084xx 087xx are going to cost you.

National numbers start 01xx 02xx 03xx. 0800 is now free for mobiles too since law changed last summer.

Best way is to ignore any numbers posted on profiles. Chat here first and see how genuine by cam chat on something like Skype, and then maybe phone.

Well done S-J. Keep up good work getting rid of fakes. I've reported some in past and glad to see no longer on site.
