A total scam and a rip-off
The site is poorly run, fully of non-existent people and dodgy profiles. I can't believe I was so stupid to have joined the site. Even reporting 'girls' that want payment for 'service' one would think the site would delete, people claiming to live in Australia but in fact are in Manila are great for business.
came to this site to find other people like us put up profile etc every thing except pictures sent messages out to plenty of members statistaly should have got one reply . message comes up no pic 94%chance u will get no replys in other word no pics we put you in the cupboard so no one can see u we did not go into this expecting miricals but if a mountain is50 miles high in exptations our exptations was a 20 mile high mountain as for the experience on this site it is the opposite of mountains it is the san warn trench in the bottom of the pacific ocean deepest place known to man kind in other words it was [Word Removed] house
A big waste of money!!!
As a member I think this website, like all the others of this type are run by some dude in a rat infested basement out of Manila.
The profiles on this website are “real” but the person who posted them are long gone and haven’t logged on for months or years .
The unsuspecting member sees these and thinks they can contact these people, they then get flirty messages and sexy talk thinking it is from the person in the profile, however it is the site owner they are talking to. Donn’t waste your money . These sites try to appeal to people’s desire...
Non active user.
I am no longer very active on this site but have met admin and several other users at meet and greet events in Sydney,Melbourne and brisbane. I know for a fact admin will remove bogus or scam profiles as soon as they are made aware of them.have a couple of pleasant meets through the site. Most profiles are real but remember guys, while the girls are upfront about what they like they still expect to be treated as LADIES, also most girls seem to get hundreds of messages so very picky about responding.
No women in all wa respond to anything ...
There are possibly and I stress.. possibly one or two actual live profiles in WA that react in any way to contact over a month. Search in a broad range of categories met with one response only ... not any semblance of value for money expended. When I cancelled my status as an ongoing payer but wanted to use the remainder of my credit time the whole account was removed immediately. I did my account alteration in a timely manner and despite that the site announced I was being billed a further month. I contacted my bank immediately.
Will refer to ombudsman and appropriations law authority if any further issues in breach of contract or identity anomalies develop.
Flingfinder complete rip off
Flingfinder is just another fake rip off hook up site when you use the search it looks as if 80% of members have realised they have been conned and have left or the profiles are fake. Sent heaps of messages and friend request and not a single answer looked into the reviews of this site and what do you know bad negative comments. Don't waste your time or money guys if its some naughty fun your after then go pay for an escort because at least your gonna get something for your money because you get nothing for your money on flingfinder.
More Fun Than a Barrel of Monkeys !
I met my ex wife of 12 years in the then personal columns of the local newspaper. So I know the potential for committed relationships in paths like this is pretty high.
Then statistically apparently, a massive 25% of serious relationships worldwide are supposed to have started with online dating. That said, if you're expecting a real life "You've got mail" or a "Sleepless in Seattle" scenario, you may be cruising for a bruising.
I am now a member of 5 (mostly dodgy in various ways) dating sites and I'm here to tell you that relatively s...peaking, FlingFinder is free (no, really free) online dating with old school integrity and more fun than a barrel of monkeys. The members are friendly, open and unashamedly candid. And the potential's huge. So why have I given the site 3 and not 5 stars? Because sadly, there are not enough members to allow you to play the numbers game effectively. So come on you people reading this, register now and this platform could be a swingin', hot to trot, all night every day "hoot n nanny".
Any body can make multiple profiles
All you need for this site is a valid email address, whats stopping someone from making multiple profiles with different email addresses, Answer... Nothing..."I had a paid membership & cancelled it after a week when I realised the 5 profiles I was sending messages to was the same person. all had different profile pics. in different states, but it was one person who had created multiple profiles. All any one needs to do is take a picture of a person in the street without them knowing then load that picture on to the site. the chances of that pe...rson seeing their pic on fling finder is slim. just change the state with different postcodes, its as simple as that...Theres nothing stopping any one from doing it. So Fling finder saying there are no fake profiles is a load of crap. The other thing is for paid membership you have to go thru Pay Pal the site dosent have their own card facilities.
Some real profiles but simply not enough to stand a chance for a hook up
Signed-up for a paid account for three months, reached out to over 150 persons but it seems to me that the girls willing to send you a picture or open up the profile for reviewing all the pictures are really struggling to get someone in real life due to their looks. Out of the 150 + contacts initiated, maybe a little less than 10 replied to my initial hello / request for more communication. Cancellation process was easy.
One of the best, and I've tried them all. Does require a bit of effort if you're a guy.
I've been a member of FF for years precisely because it is so genuine. In all that time I've found only one fake profile, and it was removed by admin within minutes of me reporting it.
So have I met many women on FF? Absolutely, but it takes a bit of effort. I spend time in the chat room getting to know the other members (which I enjoy anyway) and send a LOT of messages. Also be prepared to add some photos to your profile if you want any action. I see members complaining that they don't get any responses when they have no photos and about 2 ...lines of text in their profile. Seriously, how do they think it works - women just pic guys at random?? This isn't the biggest dating site out there (I hope it grows a lot bigger - then it's an easy 5 stars) but it's a lot of fun and the woman are genuine.
Doubts about some profiles
I am a current member who can see the pros and cons of this site. The one issue is the males have to pay for subscription which includes access to the chatroom where as a female can be a trial member can still accee it without paying. Maybe to attract females that's the only way. The chatrooms are hardly ever used or has a lack of numbers in it.
The previous reviewer is spot on in regards to the chatrooms. But it is split into 3 sections including a adult room for terms of sex and the like. Some profiles either don't get used anymore or are fakes. You do meet people but most are from interstate. Never met a local which is also a negative.
Can be good with improvement but better then some others that are around.
Too many rules for an adult dating site
As the title states to many rules for a online dating site. Expensive, no wonder people have left.
Used to be a member. Can say I've met more people, after leaving the site. Chat room was full of boring people who liked to talk about the weather. There was never any sex. Far to many clique groups. I can see this site going down hill very quickly
Waste of time even the reviews are questionable
Signed up to see if this site was different, sent out loads of winks and have heard nothing......thought I'd check out the reviews and it's amazing all the negatives are as you'd expect written by real people, the positives are well to polished in the way they are written
Almost as if they were written by the 'amazing ' admin staff....
Q: if I'm on a dating site do I need to be constantly talking to admin ?
Many fake profiles
Despite the site claiming that there are no fake profiles, there are. Enough that just flicking through a few pages of profiles and you'll start to see the same pictures recurring, only that the profiles associated with the pictures will have completely different details. When I noticed this, I put a complaint in with Paypal stating that the product was not as it claimed. Oodlum Pty Ltd, the parent company, responded saying there's no fake profiles, but immediately deleted my account.
There's almost no users on this site.
From mcjonline....com: "flingfinder.com.au is registered with AU-NIC. flingfinder.com.au is ranked #724,403 in the world according to Alexa.com traffic rank and gets around 1,252 daily pageviews from 626 unique visitors." Only 626 unique users Australia/World-wide, yet there are thousands of profiles, so something doesn't add up. Very low real user base. Many fake profiles. Expensive. No chance for refund.

Questions & Answers
If it is an Australian site only then find a Hannah Morgan from Luton in the UK who claims to be from Blacktown in NSW, even ban her completely as she is a scammer and pleads for money to 'help her out'.

I accidentally made my profile for a single I wanted it for a couple how can I fix this?
You may be able to edit your profile to a couple without loosing what you have paid. If not then just make it very clear in what you say that you are a couple and what you are both seeking on the site. Hope that helps. Cheers, Peter
Hi Kristi. Easily fixed. We changed your profile to a couple yesterday after receiving your support request. Enjoy!
