SafeDater - age verification scam

Apr 15, 2010
review #178500

Here is a response I got to my Craigslist ad:

=====================================

Thanks for replying

here is a little about me I recently moved here and I'm looking for someone to have fun with. I have black hair with brown eyes and I always stay in shape.

I'm ok with trying new things as long as its safe.

anywayss, I think we will have a good time together, but because of the recent incidents that happened on craigslist I was a bid worried meeting someone online, there is a free service they will just check to make sure you are safe please don't take it personally, Its just the first time I foud someone online. and my friend did the same thing when she found her bf. she told me about the service. they use your credit card to verify if its really you but its free and itd free tey never charge you and takes just a second. after you complete it you will get access to my contact info , itwill show you my phone number too. you can see my pic there right now. here is the link http://snipurl.com/uiljs after you verify give me a call. so we can talk :)

bye, Olga

=====================================

The link (http://snipurl.com/uiljs) leads to http://www.safedater.org/15/sweetgirl5344 where you are asked to enter your credit card info for 'age verification'. But when you click to process the transaction you get a screen that says your credit card is no good for age verification... an obvious phishing scam. Also, the person's name on the email I got does not match the one on the verification site.

I quickly cancelled my card and will have a new one in a week or so, and have reported this to Craigslist. A followup report will also be submitted to Yahoo.

It will no longer remain to be doubted that the priests of Egypt and the sages of Greece have drawn directly from the original well of India, that it is to the banks of the Ganges and the Indus that our hearts feel drawn as by some hidden urge.

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.

When you feel cold and warm at the same time,
when you read over the same line for the tenth time,
when your heart and thoughts somehow appear to rhyme,
and when a simple name conquers your whole mind,
then you are in deep trouble my friend... you are in what they call, "love".

Everybody knows how to love but few people know how to stay in love with one person forever.

Is there anything more awkward than when you are singing along to a song on youtube and the music stops loading.

I imagine what would happen if everyone turned their regrets into wishes, went around shouting them.

Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes but don’t quit.

Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresea, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, Albert Einstein, etc…

Whenever I came up with a reply that tells me to go to a site for whatever reason I just ignore and put them on spam mail.

Strongly suggest you guys do the same.

Hey babe,
Thanks for the reply...I can't wait to meet up with you :). All I ask you to do is go to www.safestdates.com/brookebaby to verify you are real and safe like I already have.
It only takes a minute to complete the check, and when you finish you will be shown my full details page, with my phone number and address. Call my cell when you get it so we can get together soon :)
Btw, If I don't answer for some reason, you can come by tonight or tomorrow night since I'll be around...but you should be able to get a hold of me so we can meet up faster :)

This site also uses craigslist

Once you respond to an ad (the usual fake ones) they send you a reply. I've had several with no return address or message. I was still able to figure out that safestdates.com sent the messages to me. Of course the safestdates site is what it is...b.s.
