Catfish, Scammers and Flakes from RomanEmma's blog

We have literally been on every site imaginable and are dedicated to finding someone who will join our family. Unfortunately, we’ve had to endure nothing but catfish, scammers and flakes for the past year of trying. I do know that we are a great catch! We honestly blame the sites for not applying more security or verification measures in order to mitigate or completely prevent such profiles from being created. Being parents it’s hard to mingle or find a babysitter. We’ll see what the future holds. For all you true explorers trying to find that one, best of luck! Just don’t get roped into a scam! Ask real questions, never send money to someone, don’t release personally identifiable information to anyone. If you agree to meet with someone, make Sir family/friends have a picture of the person, location you are going, time you are meeting them, when you’ll be back/or when you’ll text/call them, and any other relevant information you can muster.

As being the founder of this site, and being on other dating sites as well. This is a problem across the board and it is getting to the point where video verification and id verification is a must before an account is approved. We check everyone that signs up. We look at IP address, read the profiles and respond to flagged accounts. The scammers are getting better and better. The problem is, before most of them came from over seas, so We can look for things like vpns ETC. However nowadays they are comming in from ISP's like comcast, vzw, cox etc. Using real pictures, probably from a friend or friend of a friend. They are mostly coming from the USA now, so our country is turning into a scammer nation. It is against our terms to send money. Never ever ever send money, gift cards etc. It is perfectly ok to reimburse once the person arrived. But you also have to look out for Gold Diggers as well. Meaning they are real people looking to get a free ride... Some people are ok with that, some are not.As being the founder of this site, and being on other dating sites as well.

Thank you for the response Chris! It’s true about the other sites and everything else you mentioned! I like the idea of the video verification. It won’t rule out all the garbage, but it will lighten the load of problem profiles. Thanks again and hope you have a blessed 2022!!!Thank you for the response Chris!

Very well said. The fake profiles are indeed a real problem. I’d be in favor of a universal verification that proves everyone is genuine. I’m also disheartened that so many profiles don’t understand true polygyny. It’s as if many aren’t here to find someone to marry but rather a fling. That or they are just “trying out (exploring) poly” as they say. Sorry but there are real families (husband and wife(s) and real individual (single) women on here trying to find one another for long term marriage. It seems that this should be taken very seriously by everyone. It shouldn’t be used for a midlife crisis a couple might be having or for a night of “fun” that a single woman might be looking for. It’s serious stuff where real hearts are involved and many are looking to be honorable and good.Very well said. The fake profiles are indeed a real problem.

As someone relatively new to this space, I find RomanEmma's post to be very informative, thank you. Also appreciate JamieNatalie's comments. I can't say for certain that it would fix all the issues that come with verification Chris. But there are a couple of services I know of that might help in this area. REP ZIP (https://repzip.com/) and MetaID (https://www.metaid.io/). It is certainly an area that has developers interested at the moment.As someone relatively new to this space, I find RomanEmma's post to be very informative, thank you.
