Not the site itself but what happened to me.

I just barely signed up. Was on maybe a total of 3 hours. A chick hit me up. After a few messages she came straight out and said she wanted to hook up. Asked for my number so I gave it to her. A few texts in she said she wanted to hook up, hook up. I said alright but

I just barely signed up. Was on maybe a total of 3 hours. A chick hit me up. After a few messages she came straight out and said she wanted to hook up. Asked for my number so I gave it to her. A few texts in she said she wanted to hook up, hook up. I said alright but I'm not going out, since I had to wake up on 7 hours for work. She told me I had to sign up to a website called casual hook ups in order for me to be registered and to make sure she was safe and protected if anything were to happen to her.

I immediately thought it was a scam, but the way she said it made me think that this site was legit. I told her I wasn't signing up for some other site. I was a promoter to a sex site before, well for one day, so I knew the game.

Now I'm questioning myself. Was this a scam or did I really need to sign up with a credit card to some outside site for both our mutual protection?

That's a very common scam on dating sites. They try to get you to go to a fake "verification" site that makes you enter enough personal info for your identity to be stolen and makes you enter a credit card so they can max it out. The average victim of this scam loses $3000.

And NO real girl on a dating site will ever tell a guy she has never even met that she wants to hook up. If she might want to hook up, she will meet you at a bar or cafe first and see what you are like. Then after a few drink she might suggest hooking up. But never just online without meeting you

Those scammers are all over dating sites.

And never give your phone number right away. Now they can sign you up for premium rate services. You always communicate through the dating site/app until you have met in person. Then you exchange numbers. Until then you message through the site/app.

It's a scam. No one does that. If she wanted to feel safe, she could give your address to friends and to come or call the police if they don't hear back from her by x time. Or she could have met you in a public space to get a feel for you and decide whether or not she'd hook up with you a day or two later.

It's a scam and she would never actually "hook up". She gets a commission for each sucker she gets to sign up.

Straight up scam.
