Tips & Advice: What are the complaints about BookofMatches?
BookOfMatches.com – Fakes & Fatties
This is one of the easiest Canadian hookup websites to sign up for and the quality shows. It was one of the sites we tested with the most fake profiles, and from the women who were legit, the quality was not good.
It was obviously a site which had used scraped photos from other sites to generate fake profiles. Whether they had done this themselves, or more likely, the site was so lax and easy to sign up for that scammers were using it as an easy way to get online and try and get money out of people just looking to hook up.
We came across a couple of scammers on the site when we were using it, in different cities. Both pretended to be hot girls in their early twenties, exactly our demographic. But as we had pointed out in our guide on how to spot fake profiles they pictures they posted just didn’t stack up. A quick image search of those pictures revealed them on a girlfriend revenge porn site – a common go-to for scammers looking to farm pictures. The girls on those sites look natural so you don’t immediately think they are porn stars, but at the same time there are enough that they can send you a few ‘private’ pics, either of them naked, in underwear or performing acts. To get data for our tests we always strung these girls (or guys for all we know) along for a while before cutting them lose. We always wanted to wait until the request came for money or personal information (“Hey, what’s your real email address?”, “Are you on Facebook?”, “Where exactly do you live?”) so we knew for definite they were scammers – they always were…
We talked in our guide that fatties weren’t for us, but they might be for you if you are in need of some quick wins. Well brother we still warn you to stay away from this site. It was chocka-full-a-fatties, and not the good bit-of-puppy-fat type, but rather the gargantuan type. These are not the kind of girls you really want to hook up with (unless you have that fetish) and not the kind we wanted to, so this was not a good site for us. With the propensity for scams and the high level of fat it was a site we bombed out on, but were glad to. We got a lot of messages from both fakes and fatties and messaged back to keep the conversation going, but the fakes were never looking for a date, and the fatties were never going to get a date out of us, so in the end it was a stalemate.
BookOfMatches.com – summary…
This was a site that had a lot of fake profiles on it. Lots of nice looking pictures that turned out to have been scraped from other porn sites on the web. The quality of the rest of the legit girls on this site was not up to our standard, and we don’t think would have met yours either. Stick clear unless you like to lose money or be flattened…
