To Many Fake Profiles and Bots
Unfortunately this site is being over run with fake profiles and bots. When I did finally delete my account due to the lack of real women on AM. I stated the reason why I have deleted my account, and to Ashley Madison's credit they refunded my subscription in full.
21st pimping scam
o all the boys and girls out there who are stuck in suffocating relationships looking for a bit of outside love. Do not throw your time, money or spend even a tiny bit of hope to succeed on Ashley Maddison. The site is run by bots. Some men think it’s funny to trick other men by posing as women. If there are any women on the site they are trolling for their own men(catch them in the act). Stay clear of this site. You are better off with Tinder. Ashley is a scam... Pure scam.... your free account is only a temptation to spend a bit of money and ...try your luck. Ashley is really good at marketing and making anyone feel that there is hope or possibility of success. Do not fall into these traps. By the way FYI subscription pricing in India is $144 for 2000 coins and in Australia $369. Save your money and buy yourself something nice. Or spend it elsewhere do not waste your money on Ashley.
Scams .... inside and out
There are legitimate profiles here - and plenty of obviously fake ones. I got a message from one member but couldn't read it as I was a guest so bought credits so I could read it. The woman messaged me back to say that she hadn't contacted me and it was a thing the site did to get guys like me to buy credits. Which I'd suspected might be the case but interesting that they use active profiles.
I payed to use the site twice and made sure auto renew was off, both times they charged me a second time and when I contacted them I got no reply, this is fraud and highly illegal. I wont be using this site again and I strongly recomend people stay away. The vast majority of prfiles are fake on this site anyway.
Fake and thousands of guys to one girl
No success with this site at all.
In comparison cupid, Iranian personals and others had results.
The almost 100% certainty, the initial people are fake, there are too many men to women ratio and I would not waste my money on it.
Leg work required
I've been off and on AM for quite a few years and have had some amazing experiences with a number of women I've met here. So, the good news is there ARE real women there. But it's a numbers game. I estimate there's at least an 80/20 male to female ratio and that's including the dozens of fake profiles and scammers that are increasingly a bad feature of this site. If you make one genuine contact with your 200 credit basic package, you're doing well. The tips from this AM veteran are: only concentrate on profiles where the user has made a genuine...attempt to write something about themselves and what they are seeking; avoid profiles where the name is just gibberish, or if an 'attached' woman has posted a too-good-to-be-true glamorous public pic. Once you get talking on the site, pressure to move straight to email or a messenger service is a bad sign - especially if it's the Asian scam site GaGaHi. Consider any female user who is single and under 30 a sugar baby scammer, they'll ask for money at some point. Also avoid those whose written English is poor, they are most likely not even in the country. Good luck!
If you are careful, it's good
I first joined Ashley Madison about 7 years ago and I've found it very good. I have met and had affairs with several very real and very lovely women who were in the same position as me: married and committed to the marriage, but sexually unsatisfied.
Yes, there are some scam profiles, and yes, the site encourages you to spend money. But if you use your brain they are easy to avoid, and there are certainly plenty of real profiles.
Don't bother - full of fakes
This may be one of the more well known sites but is it full of fake profiles and fake messages that force you to buy credits to respond. Don't waste your time.
AM is a scam
The AM website is a complete scam. Please do not spend any money on the site. I will be formally reporting the website to the department of Fair Trading. Please also look at the other 70 or so reviews below, all reporting same.
Avoid - no password help/ still charge you
Avoid. Lots of bots, or profiles that show being online but haven’t been used in months.
My password was somehow wrong- not sure how, as it’s all saved to phone, so emailed a few times to get it reset... no email back. Forgot about logging in due to lack of interest in bots, and just found out my card has been charged the past few months of not being on.
Not cool, and very disappointing in what’s meant to be a big site
All fake account
All accounts are fake and its big scam. also all other website which are monthly subscription or buy credits to look and at the messages. BE AWARE ITS ALL SCAM. some other website Naughysecretdating, Benaughty,Justrooting
Absolutely fraud and fake profiles
None of the profiles are genuine. They are a well orchestrated scam. You will be contacted by fictitious people so you keep purchasing credits. Best to stay away from this site,
Mostly fake, signing up way too expensive, infiltrated by prostitutes and escorts. Don't waste your time or dollars. Suck you in on other platforms. Very disappointed in results compared to expectation.
Waste of money
What an absolute waste of money 250 dollars to be exact. Scammer after scammer after scammer. Your better of doing it old school, hit the town and met people. I cant believe I fell for it.
Questions & Answers
I joined and found I had lots of responses....but they were basically all from overseas, end up chatting to you on Whatsapp, saying they are on holidays in the suburb down the road, and that they want se _
but you must get a security check pass costing A$55 before they proceed with meeting you. I find this to be a scam......Has this happened to anyone else.... Save your money guys...stay away
I had a few of those, but ignored them and reported the profile to the site. Narrow your search parameters. Search for women of a specific age range, within 31km of your location, and most importantly only those who have been online in the last 48 hours. Ignore all unsolicited approaches from women: the genuine ones will expect you to be the one to make contact.
Has anyone been told that real voice phone calls will have to wait till the female is ready to call & speak with you? I could not believe that a proper voice phone call was subject to some sort of time-line. Any comments here guys? I'd like to read what happened to you & not to gloat or anything like that
Good for a 45-year-old guy?
I have just realised this site is for affairs, disregard this question
