Fake, Fake, Fake
I have been on Ashley Madison for over s year. Unfortunately I have had zero luck actually hooking up with anyone.
I've been very successful on Tinder. Do it has been a mystery why no luck on AM. But some checking of the profiles that send out messages to me has revealed the ugly truth.
Virtually every message I get from a "woman" is easily found to be a fraud. Tineye.com is your friend - run their pix thru Tineye and discover how many of these are stolen, garbage pictures.
Give it a pass! This is organized thievery.
A scam. Was CHARGED to close my account! It felt like blackmail.
In a weak moment I ignored my good sense and signed myself up to be done over by Ashley Madison. I probably deserved it. Please learn from my experience.
Most of the profiles are fakes or prostitutes and scammers. I got many messages from Russian scammers and prostitutes at clock work intervals (every 15 minutes or so on average when online). It would be easy to blow your credit messaging these people if you didn't recognise them. The few real women listed are unresponsive because they are already inundated with messages from the many men wh...o make up the vast majority of users. When I realised with considerable self disgust what I had fallen for I decided to close my account. Ashley Madison added insult to injury by gouging an exit fee just to close my account! They extorted extra money from me to "remove all traces" of my activities. Of course I'll just have to take them at their word that they did so. It felt like blackmail and just a little bit rapey too. You got me once Ashley Madison but what you bought from me is a lot of bad press. With competition from Tinder and the like this business is circling the drain anyway and most deservedly so.
The profiles of the women are mostly fake. It doesn't matter what hour of the day you login, the same profiles are on line. 9am, 2am 8pm. Same ones every time. I work odd hours so I get to see the site when 99 percent of people would be asleep......but guess what!! Same profiles. As for credits and messaging......they have a sneaky way of making your messages a priority to be read. Of course you don't realise this until you notice that its costing 10 credits and not 5 to send a message. Often with no reply. If you get a reply.....its another 5...credits to open it to mostly find its a Not Interested. I tried to delete my account and they wanted another $80!!!! Best advice.......steer well clear of this one. They just want your money for no return.
Great for women
I'm a woman on AM and would recommend it for females. There are some "great" guys on the site. In fact it's hard to choose. I have also put up exactly what I'm looking for in my profile but to no avail...men who do not fit my clear criteria still spend their $ making contact and I don't have the time to be polite to everyone!! I also have to say that married men are the hottest in bed!
Completely fake and beware the upsell to other sites
I joined AM about a month ago and initially received quite a few emails from 'would be' admirers.
First contact was from a girl in the US claiming she was coming to Melbourne. She wanted to video conference first but I had to pay on a different site to be able to do this. I smelled a rat and didn't bother.
I subsequently got contacted by several other women all claiming to be interested and each one in turn tried to get me to sign up to other sites. Why? Each if these other sites is run by the same company that runs AM. The company's name...is ALM or ALT, not entirely sure which but it's one of them. Here's a quote from the wikipedia about Ashley Maddison: "In 2012, the company was sued by former employee Doriana Silva, who stated that in preparation for the launch of the company's Portuguese-language website, she was assigned to create over a thousand bogus member profiles within a three-week period in order to attract paying customers, and that this caused her to develop repetitive stress injury." All the reviews I have read here mirror my experience. Don't bother. This is nothing more than a scam. Don't waste your money.
I have been on a few dating sites and would have to say this is the worst by a long shot! Will drain every penny you have put in with just about everything you do, and watch out for hidden charges they mount up big time. Want to receive an initiated email....credits! want to reply an email to the same person........credits! half hour chat can be around $20. Watch out for fake profiles of course, although this is on every site. Profiles saying they are online when they are not, the list can be endless.
Seems to have alot of attractive people on it.
90% of it, biggest is expensive and draining very quick
I spent $200 to get 2 replies(sorry not interested in the moment, and your too young). Its a fake site and has many fake chat enquiry to steal your credits. This is legal stealing. Stealing stealing stealing!!!!
There should be a criminal investigation. They check boxes to keep deducting your credit card, and they think they can abuse everyone because everyone one there is a piece of [censored word removed].
Stealing money and peoples time
I've been a member for about 2 months and after reading these reviews, I feel terrible. It is free for women and although my pictures are all hidden, I have received hundreds of emails. In the beginning I made a a real effort to respond to every email I got but this became almost impossible. I have deleted emails without even reading them having no idea the expense of sending them for the males.
That being said, it would seem that some men think that because a woman is looking for an affair, she is willing to accept anything. I have accurate...
Questions & Answers
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
