Has your online date encouraged you to obtain one of these passes by directing you to a specific website offering these, such as:

Don’t Get Scammed!

Websites identified to be operating as scams include but are not limited to (Note, these change all the time and there are many which are not included on this list):

Sites which claim to offer security IDs but are really just scams include but are not limited to:

























securitydatingassurance – Common scam on Grindr




Secured Online Seekers


Safety Insurance Badge










Is your online Date saying something along the lines of:

“Ok babe listen .. VERIFICATION HOOKUP ID is a process of running a verification and make sure I’m not meeting with someone who is either a convict or offender.verification hookup id is used to identify a person who has been the subject of a background check including criminal records/legal issues. This serves as a proof that you are safe, legit and free from harm. , they will provide you my full details including my hotel address and contact  number as long as you pass their check it takes like 2 minutes. I hope you will show me you are serious .. If you have nothing to hide then MESSAGE me back then i’ll give you the instruction on how to get Verification ID okay babe ..😘😘😘”

WARNING: You are being scammed! These are fake background checking websites created by cyber criminals.  They only want to collect your personal identification and credit card details so they can steal your personal contact details and commit further fraud.

The websites you are directed to may be official looking and some even contain stolen logos from government authorities and official brokers.  In other cases, they are poorly put together (note the terrible use of grammar!) and are published on free sharing platforms such as Facebook, Blogspot and Google Plus.

Unfortunately,  once the money and/or documentation has been sent, the scam is now complete and all fake profiles will be deleted and the scammers will cease all form of communication.

NEVER, EVER send copies to your Date any of your personal documentation such as drivers licences, passports etc.

    Been scammed the last 5 days….i signed up to well hello, shagbook and p.o.f. (plenty of fish)… again it seems the same very nice attractive girls asking me for my email so i can then get pulled in to their way of ‘meeting up with me’.
    They dont tell me the whole process of how much it will cost…..last night i tried to send £165 to the phillipines and to type cash pick-up to a CEBUANA LHUILLIER 165GBP Plus a 3.99 fee on top….and to put the name PATRICK TANJENTE whose mobile is 00639362898698
    The girl is called ashley flowers and we ended up skyping for nearly 3 hours….she really wanted to get with me….and sit on my face and called me sext beast…..and it seemed great she was helping me as im not great with using computers and the screen on my phone….
    When i called her via videophone….it was cancelled….so i couldnt hear her voice or see her at all….but she sent many.different photos of her….naked and in say a bathroom or bedroom or a gym!
    It seemed very believable….i cant believe how i got tricked into it….
    She said at the beginning to pay a £3 to get a pass and that she did the same the week before…..she said her boyfriend was caught sleeping with her best friens and so she was hurt and joined here for nsa (no strings attached) and just wanted fun…..
    Same happened to me recently where a girlfriend was sleeping behind my back…i told her this (i dont know if uts a male or female i was talking to) ..she kept saying luv and said she was from birmingham…as im from the north of uk… all seemed weird when they ask for this amount of money…thats when i start to thing something is fishy/weird

    Hey, I’ve met a girl from Canada, and I’ve been talking with her, but once she asked me for the Dating Pass ID – and I was so stupid that I have done it, and later we were talking about us, and she was very nice… Then she said that her mobile phone is broken and she needs to buy a new one… She asked me to rent her the needed money, but when I saw the adress from Moneygram from Phillipines (of a man) then I denied to give her that money… But she said it is okay, if I cana’t borrow her that money – she will ask her aunt to do that… We are chatting on Hangouts, and she called me once: she has really Canadian accent of English – but I couldn’t see her face on camera…
    Do anybody know if I have to deal with a fake? Did anybody meet a girl, for whom he was coming through that stupid Dating Pass procedure?

    The next time you are chatting with one of these very hot and willing women ask yourself if they couldn’t get laid by walking into a bar and simply asking for it. Now the next time they want you to verify and prove you are not a convict pervert whatever – simply tell they you can’t do that because you are everything they are worried about. You can even tell them that what they are doing is illegal and if they could simple forward their address to you to verify you would be willing to register to their site.

    You will find they ignore anything:that you tell them, ignore any question you ask, ignore pretty much anything you type.

    The keep telling you how simple this is – only takes minutes – they need to be safe – it’s a script. Somedays I like to play with them only because I know if they are taking the time to send me email -I am taking them away from sending you email.

    I think if everyone got off of the phone went to a supermarket look for a women without any ring on her wedding band finger and just say hello how is your day you would probably have a 100& better chance of finding yourself one hell of a women too many people including women can not get off of their phone and simply go back to the way that it was when men and women use to treat each other like real human beings instead of acting like snobs and worrying about how much money the other one makes if we continue this way we will end up in an unfortunate way i hope that in a couple of years that cell phones and Facebook dating sites and all of the others will be a thing of the past because at the rate we are going there will be nothing left but men who like to put their dick in your ass and women who will only hang out with their sistas and buy up all of the dildoes online I hate to be real blunt about this fact but at the rate we are going we will never be able to look back

    After having been married nearly 20 years, I got into internet dating. I mean, what the hell did I know? I was 110% faithful to my wife, so I had NO clue about contemporary dating or what a snake pit it’s all turned into. So, dumb-ass me gets en-raveled by some woman (?) who was allegedly from Texas only to find out she(?) was/is in GHANA — ACCRA, GHANA. Listen gents, there are no hot white women in ACCRA, or the Philippines, or where the hell ever in some damned third world shit hole. And if there are, they are sex slaves or one sort or another. As for meeting any nice looking females from said khazis, a different route is needed.

    Hey guys, this scam is rife in Australia too. I get hit up by these fake profiles from “beautiful women” with the exact same scam at least once a week, sometimes a lot more. They all say pretty much the same thing that has been described in previous posts on here. Although they call it different names. ie.hookup badge, daters pass ect ect. There is also something else to consider!! I am reasonably confident that the scammers are using tracking software on our devices via wi fi, gps, and location finders ect. As i have been almost pin pointed location wise whilst being targeted.. scary isnt it… i play with them now, requesting they take degrading pictures of the hotel they are staying at around the corner from me. Either holding up something from the hotel or of themselfs posing in front of something local. Watch out they are good and prepared to string you along all the way. Advice to all – get yourself a pre paid Visa that can be registered with your details and only use that online..and verifiable by Visa ect. only put what $ you need for the transaction you intend on making and get it done as soon as possible. .. this way, it will be accepted by most sites for memberships ect. And if someone does get the card details its useless to them. I can supply many photos of (scammers)woman and the names they used if anyones interested ..

    • Robert Reply

      Yeh Troy I would actually like some of those photos and names just to confirm this chick I’m chatting to isn’t one of them. I mean, waht are the chances, but I would still like to know.

    1) Click the exact PROMO link that offers free local Security Dating Check
    2) FILL OUT 1st PAGE and 2nd PAGE
    3) Next page fill out the card details, card is needed to authenticate the ADDRESS and REAL NAME for the owner’s dating i.d. so the site wont charge any single cents.
    Just lemme know when you reach 3rd page so i will guide you how to get SECURITY DATING RECORD
    This is how I get cheated, also this guy he send me a photo with the girl that probably I was talking with my name written on a paper, I did the registration and now the hacker knows all my bank details, so I need to change everything ,I feel sad but I get my lesson

    Same here. The person I was trying to speak to was very pushy.

    After she asked me to do the verification I told her no and she kept pushing and pushing I tried to block her email address and I’m still having difficulties getting her to stop.

    All you guys trying to date women – the gays are getting scammed too!
    I was contacted on Grindr by a real hunk who wanted to meet me but said he needed me to register with a non-sex offender website and gave me this address:
    I checked out the site and it looked genuine but got suspicious when they asked for credit card details for a very small payment of $1.95
    I was very tempted but my gut feelings told me to proceed with caution so I pulled out (excuse the pun).
    He seemed very upset and insisted for me to register so we could meet. I was firm and told him that if he expected me to trust him then I should be able to expect him to trust me and meet without going through all the red tape (including divulging my credit card details ).
    Haven’t heard from him again.

    There’s a website you guys didn’t list. A girl scammed me but luckily I had insufficient funds on my cards but it was weird. She sent me several legit pictures, personal messages along with the scam message. Here’s the link she sent me:

    That’s the link I got when I copied it but here’s what it looks like I’m my messages:

    But yeah I guess I’m stupid for not realizing because now that I think about she had some horrible grammar mistakes that are just like “how do you need that up?” But she did have normal conversation with me. Hey account is still active because I told her that I would purchase it today. So if there’s a way to track down a person through their account, I have all of it and it’s still active.

  21. daz Reply

    Yeah so this girl is sending me pictures and wants to meetup and fuck and all that bla bla bla. But she cannot do it without an id. So I was telling her that dont worry I’m a good person bla bla bla. So she showed me her fake id, on my request. I knew it was fake because earlier I asked her how old is she and she said 23 but on her Id it said age 24. I asked her for her birthday and she replied 19 may 1995 which would mean that she turned only 23 this may so the date she joined was 4/13/17 that would mean that on the day she joined she was only 22. Hmm I doubt she has a time travel machine oh well I must say I believed the nerd behind the computer who was very manipulative imust say but sherlock solved the case muhahaha, ps her name is vidia leniour dont fall for the nerd.

    I had a chat with a supposed girl whom i met on AshleyMadison that went on four four days before we got to the “i need money” phase. She(?) gave me an email in AM, which seemed like a good idea – to save on credits. Soon she suggested direct texting. I had a pay-as-you-go phone that i had activated using fake credentials for just this purpose. We had three really nice days of chatting – at bedtimr, in the morning, throughout the day … we even discussed what we were cooking. We exchanged some pics – nothing naked, but dressed down. But … her AM info said NJ, but of course, she was in Ghana (texting on a US area code) taking care of her sick grandmother. Some grammer screwups, but it was very pleasing to chat with (whom or whatever ot was). When the request for some financial support came – I cut everything off immediately. So I miss the contact I imagined I was having, but judge it all to have been a very subtle approach to the usual scam. Lookout, boys!

    Glad I read all this. I was on Ashley Madison and met a good looking older lady. She emailed me her pics a little too quickly though. And then she said she would like to meet. All very quick. Whis raised a red flag. The she asked for my discreet hook up code. I expect she thinks I will respond with “what is that’ AND THEN THE SPIEL WILL OCCUR. Just trying to figure out how to mess with her(him?) first. Her “name” is Katie Burton email is “” I did get some nice pics of her though. Maybe I’ll keep stretching it by asking for more pics before I blow her off.

    Ok I managed to get some more nice pics from this lady then she started getting pushy. I asked her for a REAL picture of her so I could verify she was real…and I got two !!!

    Here’s another one I met from the app/website plenty of fish in Galway, Ireland. She left her email on the bio of her profile, and asked people to drop her a mail. This is probably the first response she has for anyone who drops the mail.
    “How are you doing?😃 Im Natalie 24 years old , adventurous, open to try new things, down to anything. Im so bored now that’s why Im looking for a meet up to do some fun and Im serious for that.I am talking to you in good faith and as honest as i can be. I hate lies, shits and pretending. I am no longer 6 to not sense it. But if you want to play games,i’ll play it better 😉 Here it goes: I am looking for a casual sex encounter, discrete hookup no ​​commitment. Just a pure one night stand and we can be fuck buddies if you find me good lol. If you are down, then lets arrange now the meet up.Tonight I want to slowly kiss😘 my way from your lips down…👉👌the only question is how far down will I go? By the way, may i know where are you from babe so we can set the place right away 🙂 by the way where do you live exactly?”

    I sent her my address, (🙈 for which I’m not proud of).

    no its okay babe well Let me explain it, so you can fully understand what is the purpose of it …SELF CARD is use for a ensure safe meet up. Because there is a lot of fake account they use fake picture, email and etc and also it is use for security system with a lot of crime,bullying and rape, worse is force film then upload it to the internet,its good to be safe than sorry, that is why i decided not to meet someone in public without SELF CARD. I hope you understand me, so i can give my full trust in you when we meet, it makes more comfortable meeting someone with SELF CARD right? and that is the reason why i don’t give my number and contact other so easily, if you want more photos sorry i will not give any more so please understand. okay use this one honey to get first the self card im talking about

    If a mystery girl contacts you on a dating site and gives you an email address and sends you nice photos and makes sexual promises and then asks for id verification to be safe. This is how I respond !

    Hey Babe you contacted me first not the other way round. No I won’t be told what to do Babe and I won’t be verifying my ID for you.
    Hey Babe, I have rejected three other women for asking for verification are you going to be number four. I have 10 other women emailing me so I have choice and don’t need to verify anything Babe .

      There is no such thing as a valid safety security site. They are ALL operated by cybercriminals.

      That is correct. Google do not undertake any investigation into the validity of the sites themselves. There are many scam sites on Google – it is simply a search engine which brings all websites together in one place.
