I was on the website fling.com. Have been a paying member for awhile and have never had any issues interacting with anyone on the site. I chatted up a attractive blonde girl, that was 24. She immediately wanted to take the conversation off the site and to text, and like a idiot i did.
She texts me and I ask her more about herself, she said she was born a mute and likes to cook and wanted to be a chef, her name was laura. I thought it was odd, that my iphone identified the number as "maybe: Laura" that was my first red flag.
Anyway, she starts sending dressed and undressed pictures. Like a dumb ass i sent some back when she asked for them, but none of them were "good enough". She kept saying i cant be sure those are of you, she wanted me to send one of me naked, with my face clearly showing, i thought that was very odd, that she wanted that specifically. red flag #2. So, i stopped texting, cuz something just didn't add up.
I'd receive sporadic texts the coming days like "hey" or 'sorry i got busy" i didn't respond or id say "oh,ok". The last text i got from the fake person was "oh sorry, i've been planning my 17th birthday party". At that point i deleted the message, alot of "wtf" going through my head with, "this is creepy". Huge red flag #3. This was on a Friday.
Saturday morning the "grandfather" blows up my phone with the script that runs throughout this entire thread, you got x amount of time to call me, why are their pictures of you on my granddaughters phone, my brother in law is a retired detective, my wife is livid. yadda yadda.
I probably looked white as ghost, it was just a bombardment. So, i called back and no answer, called several times, he texts back, i'm at the airport, lets just text for the moment, he keeps reading me the riot act. So, i text, "i need to talk to you, because someone lied here and its not me." I keep calling and he finally picks up, and what do we have?! Everyones favorite scumbag scam artist the AFRICAN AMERICAN man with the heavy southern accent. (The girl in the pictures was blonde, Caucasian and mid-20s looking without a doubt.)
Anyway, we talk and I tell him, thats a paid membership site for adults 18 and over and then we get cutoff.
I went to fling and screenshot their login page that specifically says "by submitting this form you certify you are 18 years and older" as well as their legal section that states "if you use this site in violation of the ADULTS ONLY terms and conditions that you are subject to legal action" His response was "we are looking into to suing that site"
He tells me he just wants to cover the cost of the fees to cancel the phone. Which i could handle by sending a green dot money pak, through cvs, walgreens, etc and he sent a jpeg of what it looked like. I thought, this is CRAZY. i screenshot the number then block him. I do a reverse look up and its a non-fixed VOIP.
I went back to fling to cancel my membership and "lauras" profile is gone and no record of any messages.
I learned not to trade photos with strange women online anymore and removed every profile i have on dating sites, tinder, pof, etc.
In closing DONT TRUST ANYBODY unless they give you a reason too.
