Lots of fake profiles sending messages to get you to spend your credits. Plenty of profiles wanting you to supply your email address.
AM should be closed down and charged with fraud. Why don't they try to have a legitimate business instead of cheating people out of their money.
0 stars is not an option unfortunately.
The 'ease of use' rating is high because the are expert theives and make it easy to get your money quickly.
Dreadful and full of fake profiles
To say I have been disappointed with AM is an understatement.
Overly expensive with an absolute myriad of fake profiles and I suspect a small number of genuine ones so overloaded by messages there is close to no chance of ever getting a real person.
As to the AM themselves the criminal way they send fake messages and charge for sending and receiving them is underhanded.
Having said all this, its the best of a bad lot that is even arguably worse than it.
I was promised of the delivery for the first week of the September. Everyweek I call up and the lady says someone will call you on Monday. No one calls, no follow up. Today she says that we can’t deliver till October. While ordering I make them very clear that I need it till a particular day, they agreed and now not even a courtesy to call up and let the customer know. Very unreliable service, extremely disappointed.
Same as all the other guys managed a phone conversation with one woman organised to meet in the city then was asked to pay for an expansive hotel room $320 i can organise my own hookers if i want it would have ended up about a grand for a few hours saw through it pretty quick
Total scam guys- Save your money -
Guys, stay away - total scam. fake photos, & profiles and taken to a Gmail/Yahoo email to further chat. Then she wants a Safety Check done and she sends you the link. How convenient and the safety check requires your credit card details - What, they have access to a Police Data Base? Absolutely NOT! Total crap - stay away
Expensive, deceptive, and full of fakes.
Men must pay a monthly fee just to be on the site, PLUS another charge for "credits" so they can send messages. Women are free.
The site sends automated messages to male members "on behalf of" it's female members. They are disguised as real messages from the woman, but if the man responds it costs him credits.
They have a "priority" setting when sending messages, which is on by default, but it doesn't mention that it will cost you more of your expensive credits than sending your message normally.
There are lots of dummy profiles, no doubt created by site staff to lure men into making contact and spending their expensive credits.
I would have given this site a rating of zero stars if it was possible, but the minimum is 1 star
Please don't waste your money! Most of the profiles are fake and they continue to send you messages from the system enticing you to burn or buy credits. Last but not least, there is absolutely no possible means to contact Ashley Maddison - they're on a beach somewhere. Absolutely nothing will come of it - don't do it!
Don't waste your money!!
If a man it costs to join. If a woman it's free..intercourse sells true enough..my advice? Join as as fake woman, give yourself an interesting profile, bait other men with standard AM one liners, and have fun reading the replies...I even scored a photo of someone's anatomy..maybe I should have replied with one of mine..LOL
I gave it a try. Their payment system means that you have to use up some of your credit each time you reply to a message. I quickly used up all of mine replying to about 5 messages I got in response to my profile. Long story short, every one of them turned out to be a scam trying to con me in to signing up to bogus "dating security" websites which are nothing more than poorly disguised porn sites (and not even very good ones). Every single one of the profiles I checked used fake photos which could be traced with a google image search.
Bottom line - if not a single one of the profiles I checked out turned out to be legit then it's a completely pointless site. Don't bother.

Terrible do not bother fake
Pure scam with fake profiles and never made a connection do not use it or waste your money on such an app! Many fake profiles and every time you send message they drag you to send a second and third one and it never worked. Just drain on your money

After all the hype about AM, here's a few facts.
Overall there are too many scammers on the site. They are cleaned off fairly quick, but for a premium service, they shouldn't have got there in the 1st place.
There are no available filters, so you will be bombarded with unwanted messages from people of all ages from anywhere in the world.
Sign up is easy, probably the only plus for this money grabbing site.
Support is of no help at all, stating that their members like to travel and in that vein allow anyone to contact anyone.
Most of the me...
Full of scammers
The website is just full of scammers. Twice in my first two days I had interactions where after moving the conversation off site to email and getting to the point of meeting up, I was asked to verify myself via some "Safe Hookup Verification" before meeting up which was obviously some scam to get my details.
It's full of fake profiles which are obviously just bait to get the men keen and using credits. And it's fairly expensive to send correspondence.
Seriously, don't waste your time. You are just being conned.
This scam needs a bullet to the brain
If there is a way to nuke this business into oblivion and throw its creators behind bars, someone needs to do it ASAP!!! I don't even know how this business is legally running - it should be shut down by now.
So I signed up a few days ago...got a barrage of msgs from spam accounts. One stood out and looked real. We messaged back and forth for a bit...it seems like a real girl by the responses so I didn't think much of it. She sent her email. It seemed legit and we started emailing back and forth for 2 hours. Just before organising to meet sh...e asks to fill out a verification of identity which took me to another site called blackbookmatch.com. I then realised my time was being wasted by a scammer looking for credit card info. All the other msgs received have been from accounts located in other countries. The AM site is crawling with scammers and con artists. Plus charging 5 credits to send a message is ridiculous. When you advertise a service and pay for it you are setting customer expectations. When those expectations are not met it amounts to fraud. False advertising and basically blatant stealing of your money without providing what you paid for. Bringing me back to my original statement that this business should be shut down as it is fraudulent. Stay away folks. I've had more success on tinder for free than I ever had on AM.

Questions & Answers
Has anyone had to pay to meet someone for security reasons for verification?
I am not sure of your exact situation with this one but were the site be asking you to pay for verification purposes then they would be legally seen to be verifying you. I cannot see any dating site wanting to open a can of worms like that one based on a probably stolen credit card available from one of the many web sites out there that specialise in that sort of thing. The people who run web sites should be well aware of that fact, let alone that possession of a credit card in no way guarantees your intent or even psychological profile.
Did Ashley Madison actually come up with that one? Perhaps you have been sent an email from another party claiming to be Ashley Madison asking for your details. This is quite common and is called Phishing (Everybody should google that now). They use the method to get your credit card details and then sell them on one of the afore mentioned sites. Or just use it for identity theft.
The short answer is No, No and No. This has nothing to do with security. It is anti security and namely yours. Do not touch this with a ten foot barge pole.
Thanks , it was the woman I was emailing with she said it was for safety reasons and security for her
