Or am I in trouble.They won't leave me alone.They said they're contacting police as well.HELP!

Best Answer:

Jesse: That's an absolute scam. NO site can fine you and there is no such thing as "verification" — those are all fake sites designed to steal your identity and max out your credit card. The average victim of the verification scam loses $3000
Do not reply for any reason. Block their email address and ignore them
Cancel your credit card ASAP and call the number on the back to say your number got stolen and there are unauthorized charges

This is why you don't sign up for any dating sites unless they are well known – Match, eHarmony, Tinder, POF, Ok Cupid, Zoosk, etc.
If you want to hook up, you use a well known site but just look for people whose status says "not looking for a serious relationship" or "casual relationship" which is dating site speak for "just looking to hook up". And Tinder is all about hookups –and it's free. The reason people use Tinder is to find hookups

Other answer:

Jesse:
It sounds like a scam.
Ianab:
Of course it's a scam.

Block their email domain and don't respond to them at all. If they contact you via any other means, you should be the one calling the cops.

If you question it,then Yes it is. If you do not question it, then it still might be a scam.
Jackson:
As long as you don't give them your credit card info, or where you live, or any personal data (name is ok) you should be fine. If you gave them your phone number or your credit card info, I'd go to my data network provider and ask for a new number. I do not know if it cost anything to get a new number, but it might. If you gave them your credit card info, then go online to your banks website and say you lost your card and you want it to be shutdown. After you account is not allowing anymore purchases, ask if you can just get new card with a different number and stuff.
