I was stupid. I contacted someone on kik, thinking they would sext. The person asked me to follow a link and create an account on this site, leading to slutroulette.

I was stupid. I contacted someone on kik, thinking they would sext. The person asked me to follow a link and create an account on this site, leading to slutroulette. I thought, maybe, getting people to sign up was how she got paid. No credit card was ever involved. (I knew if that came up to stop things) I was smart at least to use a trash email account on yahoo. I got a verification email and they asked for a screenshot of that with the time and date. She then asked me to log in. (The site supplied a password, so I don t think I have anything like that.) then she stopped communicating.

What exactly was their goal? I wiped the data from my phone in safari, fearing a virus or something. Was it just a scam to get users to sign up? Or what? I kept hoping the other shoe would drop and they would start asking me to sign up for a premium account. But, nope, nothing.

I just want advice on what I should do. What did they hope to do? What exactly did I fall for? I was thinking with my dick, but I think the trash email helped protect me somewhat.

Well, when you signed up for the account, you put in a lot of your personal information – full name, address and possibly telephone number. Most often people who do these scams are involved in identity theft. They don't have all of your information but they are off to a good start. You might want to sign up for a service like Lifelock or something similar that will give you reports if someone is trying to start a new bank account in your name or take out a credit card in your name. They also provided insurance if someone tries to steal your identity.

They're just out to steal your email and use it as a bot.
Don't be an idiot in the future. Most girls only "sext" with guys they really like, not at random, unless they're getting paid.
