    Yesterday I was searching the internet for a batch torrent of Kyuubi subs Fairy Tail. One torrent site I clicked on offered me something along the lines of "Singles in your suburb horny and desperate to fuck you."

    I closed the tab because it was some sort of spam. But now I'm wondering, what happens to those naive enough to believe it's real and actually sign up to the service?

    Probably not much ... I guess they would want you to register and get a Premium account that you have to pay for, so you will loose some money with a 2 years premium account which won't give you anything at all.

    No idea about other countrys but in Germany this is not allowed if you don't have a chance to actually meet reall people but who would actually go to the police and tell them "I registered to have sex"

    Worst are the ones which claim that the people you'll see in their site are people you know. Makes me cringe in an unacceptable level.

    Come on now, you really believe a service like that with any sort of functional sign-up page exists? It's more than likely that clicking the ad brings you to a page that installs malware, tries to have you install and run malware yourself, tries to have you give it your credit card info, redirects you to multiple additional scam pop-ups, or all of the above. I can't imagine more effort going into the scam than the surface-level hook you just saw.

    It just means you haven't frequented enough porn on the Internet to recognize the stock photos yet.

    The scam has to be at least profitable enough that it still exists...so there must be at least a few fools out there that are willing to slam down their credit card for some Hot Russian Singles Near You!

    Those are scams? I always just thought I was accepted and craved by a very diverse range of horny local singles.

    Your jokes are borderline psychotic whenever Chary seems to be involved.
    I'm not sure if it's your attempt at being charming or likeable around a female but it comes off as extremely fucking creepy and weird, and i'm sure i've only seen a small % of the weird shit you've said by coming across your posts.

    Or she's too polite to tell you to piss off. It's not an uncommon thing. People do some crazy and weird shit when they get outright rejected. It's easier just to weather the crazy storm sometimes. Trust me, you're not doing yourself any favours with the crap you say and do. That goes for any female you're trying to interact with.
    Fix your shit i'm tired of seeing your weird ass stalker posts.

    I once set up a dating website for someone and as part of the background research we looked into these sorts of sites. I can't say scams one and all as there could well be one out there somewhere, but all the ones I saw were fairly elegant examples, or outright money grabbing examples, of gamification and sales in action. As in they could teach freemium games a thing or three. A handful of them seem to employ teases as well to try to get you to pay up, might even have to go look up my notes to see if I still have the script/flow chart used as we figured that out.

    That said this was a few years back when the hook up applications were mostly still the domain of gay people, still remember the articles like "grindr will never work for straight people".

    Were I not a bit pressed for time I would do a beer mat calculation. Suffice it to say though to achieve any kind of usefulness the user count and demographics would probably be an advertiser's wet dream and there is a reason porn site advertising is mostly circular and scams.
