Otherwise, read on for the build-up to that evidence. They never stopped, only increasing in frequency over the following few days.

The vast majority of the "women" (I quote that word only because it is entirely possible that behind any of these messages was a man) messaging "Michael" sported profile pictures that looked professionally photographed, and most of the ladies could even have passed for professional models - in all likelihood, many if not most of these images were of professional models.

A sample of some of the first few messages "Michael" received, along with my commentary, if any, in grey, follows.

My suspicions were aroused by my friend's description of the site: drop-dead gorgeous women everywhere, constantly sending him letters and chat pop-up requests, yet for every letter read after a lady's first, he had to pay ten credits, and ten credits likewise to send a lady a reply letter - instant messaging chats cost one credit per minute after the first three (free) minutes.

Credits could be bought at varying rates depending on how many you bought at a time, ranging from $8 per ten credits to $4 per ten credits.

Concerned that my friend was being scammed, I did some investigating, and came to the conclusion that yes, he was. Here, then, is my research, to warn those considering using against wasting their time and money.

My investigations took two forms: direct investigation by registering a fake profile, and indirect investigation by scouring the net for positive/negative reviews.

I'll summarise the results of the fake profile first.

On 27 June 2014, I registered a fake profile, leaving all details unset other than name, age and profile description ("A Few Words About Yourself"), which I set (respectively) to "Michael Michaelson", 70, and "I'm just here to check whether this site is a scam. Notice that "Michael" explicitly requested only scammers to message him.
