Is Ashley Madison a scam? I was just wondering if the women on this site are actually real and want to have fun with no strings attached?

It looks good but I want to get a few opinions of people who have actually paid for and used the site.

Thanks

Honestly I'm beginning to have my doubts. More recently i collected some of the collect messages that appeared in my inbox and the messages from the two chicks were exactly the same. Down to the letter. I do know that there are some oobviously real profiles on there but you have to weed them out.

I think it is a scam. Think about it. I read some reviews online and they said that what Ashley Madison does is they create fictitious profiles in your area to get you hooked so you buy credits. I don't know anyone who has actually met anyone on there. You're better off on Craigslist, but be careful. They have their own scams and there are lots of crazy nuts out there.

Ashley has no real women on there.....no one ever actually gets around to a meeting. And they don't know how to use proper English.....lol. At least on sugardaddie.com there are plenty of women that WILL show up.......even if they are professionals.......

A-M is not a scam. I've talked to 5 women of which I've had great sex with two of them and 2 other great cyber sex. The cost of subscribing is a lot cheaper than the typical BS dating scene and unless you're just plain nasty you've got a good chance of getting laid. .

If AM is a scam, how did I manage to hook up with two ladies I met there? Were they in on the scam?

There are plenty of women who may be scamming and plenty who just tease. Learn to ignore them.

You're results may vary. If you can't write for s**t and have a bad attitude, no surprise you won't find anyone to hook up with.

I have actually met two women off Ashley Madison one really didn't want an affair and the other was almost a prostitute. I agree with most of you most the profiles aren't real, or women contact you like once and you never hear from them again.

This is no scam. Sure there are scammers here just like any other site, but I've had a few encounters that lead to some really great experimentation and sexual experiences. You just have to use common sense and don't come off as the jerk that just wants to get laid, and you just might get laid. No woman wants an asp-wipe courting her for any reason. Sure I had my unanswered emails, but who hasn't just keep trying guy and gals. I'm 51 and still very active but most women want a younger stud, (They don't see age and experience the same way when it scomes to sex) so I keep looking too.

I think most Ashley Madison reviews gives a pretty good oversight. Read the comments by members at the bottom of the article, too. It points out that there are scammy aspects, but overall that it's relatively legit for a "hookup" site.

The following link pretty much sums it up. It cleverly guides you through all of the pitfalls then "admits" that it is the best you will find in the dating world.

http://www.squidoo.com/ashley-madison

It is no wonder that this site is positioned #1 on Google. It is rich with keywords, meta tags, a catchy title and cynicism.

None the less A Great Ad and it will fool many.

I think it is probably part scam/part real. I'm sure there are some women who are truly looking for what the site says it provides. However, in looking at the big picture, while I was surfing some profiles, interestlingly a bunch of very good looking women appear with their very clear and unobstructed photos. And in their description it says that they are looking for (among other things) DISCRETION! Now how can that be??? I know there are some who have their husband's "permission", but not that many! I'm fairly positive the site is "populated" with "stagers" to get our horny attention. But as stated before, I'm sure there are some real ones too. I follow the age-old trusted motto: if if looks too good to be true...it probably is. The real good looking women don't have to go on dating sites for action, they can just browse the aisles of any hardware store and pick whatever man they want.

I would have to agree with some of you here but there are scammers here just like any other site on the web. You just have to use common sense and don't come off as the jerk that just wants to get laid and you just might get laid. No woman wants an asp-wipe courting her for any reason. The real good looking women sometimes have to go on dating sites to get a great guy or action, sometimes we just can’t browse the aisles of any hardware store and pick whatever man we want. There are other dating sites to go to if you do not like this one; you always have to use your common sense in every day life so why would you stop when looking for a date, that's including women too..

I thought it was a scam as well. I paid the $, and for months, nothing. I would get winks and respond using a credit and get nothing.

I kept trying and trying. I gave up for about a month....then out of nowhere I met someone. She is real and it is fantastic.

I do agree that a lot must be fake, but I can see there are real ones now

I have a profile on AM and I am not a fake. i think the issue is there are more Women out there seeking other Women as myself. We are more interested in girl fun and letting our men watch. 90% of the profiles I viewed from single girls to couples want another female. Single guys just come off as kind of conceited or perverted. Say sensual things on your profile or be sexually romantic. Sorry guys, get a girlfriend that wants to hook up for you and then you might hook up with someone.

Ashley Madison has many real women and some not so real I believe. I have been a paid member for about a year and have met a few real women. They are very reasonably priced as there payment system allows you to have credits that never expire, unlike the time membership you get at most others. If you are in a rural area it can be difficult like anywhere else but it is worth a try for not much money.

A week back I went on Ashley Madison's site and registered after reading this page: http://hubpages.com/hub/ashley-madison-review Within 2 days after joining I met a nice girl online and we started to chat and even went for a meal together. I must admit that it didnt work out but nevertheless, she was real. Today I met another girl that seems promising and we are meeting tomorrow afternoon. My point is folks... if an unattractive guy like me can make things happen on Ashleymadison, there is no excuse why you cant. As for some girls not being real or whatever is being said... well i think that is complete and utter *censored*. Have any of you guys actually tried meeting someone? If any fake profiles exist, it is most likely due to some male users who pretend to be girls and then try to get you to sign up for some shitty webcam site. Sorry but i just needed to share my $0.02c worth

My opinion is that this is absolutely a scam!...it seemed funny that any message I ever sent had no responses to any specific questions or comments, but always wanted to use the points I had to purchase for either a "collect" message or opening a personal area or something....also seemed odd that I would get new inquiries and when i SPENT POINTS (MONEY) to respond, I never heard anything. Sorry but I am not that bad and even sent a "test" message just to see what would happen....as I suspected, nothing....my opinion a scam!

Most of the people responding here need to improve their logical thinking skills. Just because most of the profiles are fake does not mean that the site is 100% scam. And just because you found a real woman and a real profile does not mean that all the profiles are real.

I'm convinced that about 90% of the profiles are fake. I just search for profiles that have taken the time to add a lot of custom description to their profiles. There is a greater chance that those are real.

The site works but a lot of guys are frustrated because there are probably 50 guys to every girl on the site. I have meet people on the site. You need to be patient and not too grose. These are females and even though they are on the site, they are not just after sex. I probably should not say this because if more people drop out, there are more left for me.

I have been active on AM off and on for several years. It is DEFINITELY NOT a scam. While it's true that there are fake profiles, like previous posters have said, you can usually spot the fakes after browsing a while.

I have met several nice ladies over the years and had an extended sexual relationship with one.

Good luck to all who try it!

I don't know there are so much scam. But I am there for one month, met a man came to my city, and it was, gosh, the best ever for both of us! I knew i am a quite pretty woman, but he definitely made me feel that i was the most sexy one...... thank AM. He thinks he is the lucky guy, while I know I am actually the lucky one. Human beings are mirrors to each other. I just hid my AD yesterday and yes, it takes time to digest the happiness.

some ideas for men, no offense and don't generalize. Let it go if you don't agree and good luck to all the beautiful lives with sincere dreams:
1. I don't think there are many women for real putting pictures on the AM. I myself never felt comfortable to do that.
2. I don't think there are many women for real will initiate a chat, since after we logged in, there will be man come to us all the time.
3. I don't think it's disrespectful to ask women to transfer to free chat program. Honestly if the window of buying credit pop up, i will asked whether the man want to transfer to yahoo, which is free.
4. I was told that my AD is different since I was for real and very straight forward about what I want. I don't think there are many women for real will take a football team, or their standards matches every male animal in the world.
5. Probably a woman for real will be conservative about her sexy part...... at least I didn't have the confidence first. I worried about that I had a tiny belly, even probably 90% woman in the world have bigger belly than me...... just women strange psychological whatever thing.....

Again: no offense and best wishes to everyone.

Being unmarried and uninterested in messing with the marriages of others, I haven't actually been on the site. However, in my area [Toronto], AM received a pretty tremendous amount of newspaper coverage due to its "novel" concept. Obviously that doesn't make or break it, but given the amount of investigative scrutiny it was under, I would assume that a largely faked profile database would have been mentioned, which I don't recall it having been.

I am a real woman, I'm not some ugly freak, I'm not a professional escort and I'm on Ashley Madison, just because I look for discretion and fun. I can see there are a lot of guys, way more than girls, it seems, but I've met a couple of persons who didn't think I'm an escort or a desperate chick. Maybe some men have a hard time accepting that intelligent, attractive women look for flings or affairs. We are real, and if we don't get what we need at home, we will go to AM. Lucky the guys who do believe that can happen and who are not sexist enough to think just men look for affairs.

Ashley Madison is not totally a scam, although I have heard some nightmare stories about most of the women just wanting money, cars, etc. I also know that there are men who pose on there as women.

I am a female who used Ashley Madison about a year ago, and I did meet a guy. Things were great for our one meeting, but apparently he was looking for a lot of one-night stands, despite what he claimed. I, on the other hand, was looking for a discreet, on-going relationship with no strings as at that time I was married.

I am currently separated, and I am wondering if anyone knows of a good site for people who, like me, really miss the passion and crave an intimate relationship without a deep involvement. I spend countless hours puzzling over this one. I don't want to pick someone up in a bar; I don't want someone who is living with a spouse and wanting to cheat. The ideal relationship for now is to be involved with someone with whom I can share a friendship and go out some, and share an intimate relationship. I just am definitely not looking for marriage or for a dependent type of situation.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I was lucky I guess, Met a nice gal. no public pix on the site but we met for coffee and ended up seeing each other for a year. It was like a dream. She moved on or I would still have my tuesday night. Since then I have found a ton of fakes and had no luck at all. I have met two others but would not touch them for my personal reasons. My summary would be... its real but does have fake profiles. If you're not picky you will do well. If you are a nice looking gal you will get laid every night...

Actually I have been using this site for about a year now and it has been very successful for me. I have been contacted by fake profiles with the "collect message" feature. I contact customer support and they refunded my credit every time. I then see that the profile it came from is deleted or removed shortly after. I travel all over so it is a great way to meet people anywhere I go. I don't understand the why people bash it like they do. They provide a service that people choose to use that's all.

Ok guys...its time to face facts! I AM a real woman, and I have been using AM..and it has been an eye opener for me. Not the site but the men and the lack of respect many of them have for women in general. Just because I am on a hook-up site does not mean I don't have standards..there is a huge section there to tick the boxes for the qualities you are seeking. My profile says Im 5 ft 8 and seeking tall men...so why is it that half the responses I get are from guys 2 inches shorter than me! You wonder why you dont get a response? If you took the time to read a profile and only respond to those that you fit ALL the criteria for, you would save yourself a lot of heartache..
And another thing...
When setting your own profile, dont tick all the boxes. If you really aren't fussy about what type of woman you are looking for, dont think we are going to be interested. We like our men to have standards too...
I have been on AM for less than a week. I have no public profile pic. I have had close to 100 people contact me, but have only chatted to 4 of these. Of those 4 I have met 1 for a coffee; he was a lovely guy but for me it just didnt click. So dont assume any form of response from a woman automatically qualifies you for any further involvement.
I am meeting a 2nd guy shortly..and only because he is as honest and selective about what he is looking for as I am. He also showed a level of respect in our initial contact that most women require before they feel they can trust someone enough to meet them.
So suck it up all you men out there-set yourself a standard and stop coming across as desperate bogans who will jump on anything that breathes. There is nothing wrong with having a bit of dignity. The ability to spell and construct a sentence would also go a long way toward improving your chances, as would a clean shirt and a comb before you take your profile pic. Just because women are online, it doesn't make them any different to the women they are when they are at work, at a restaurant, or a club, or anywhere else you would meet them. And Im sure your uninvited lewd remarks, pushy domineering behaviour, inability to accept a refusal politely or with dignity, unsolicited pornographic images, and your general lack of manners wouldn't see you meeting too many women with any shred of decency in the real life arena either.
Maybe there are a lot of computer generated 'women' on the site to balance out the ratio a little, but, honestly, if your social skills compare to those of 97% of men have approached me, you will have as much chance with an AM avatar as you do of ever meeting a genuine, self respecting woman.

To Nottelling all I can say is AMEN to what you had to say! I have only had a Guest Membership on AM since last Spring and it has produced MANY replies. I filled out my profile VERY carefully and added a personal comment at the end of each category. I found that the really discriminating and caring men, who knew what they wanted ,actually looked at the profile and responded accordingly, because when I study their profile, their Intimate Desires, Perfect Match and Personal Interests closely match mine.

Within one day I had about 20-25 replies, one in particular from a great guy, we chatted back and forth on Yahoo for a few days, then met for lunch. He was a perfect gentleman ,we sat and talked for four hours, I had no doubt in my mind our wants and needs were the same, it was going to work out, and for nine months it has been wonderful, but for reasons beyond our control, all good things must come to an end!

So, I posted again a couple of weeks ago with a new screenname and this time all the idiots and perverts came crawling out of the woodwork. i yi yi! After 3 e-mails, one man kept hounding me for a picture saying "You can tell I am the real deal!" Yeah, after 3 short e-mails I can definitely tell that for sure! It took me awhile to figure out that one guy was only interested in writing erotica, probably for his auto pleasure! Then there were the "desperate ones, " and as Nottelling mentioned, men that looked like they hadn't changed their clothes or combed their hair. And guys, don't send us a pix taken in front of your bathroom mirror! And there were those that couldn't write complete sentence. I realize a lot of guys can't type, but...... And then there were the wife bashers.

I am very careful. If a guy gives me his telephone number, I do a reverse look-up on WhitePages.com to make sure he's who he says he is. You will find name, address, family members and age and many guys lie about their age. AM states that if you are changing facts in your profile for anonymity, then immediately be up front after connecting with someone. Pix send on AM are safe because they can't be copied and sent elsewhere.

Earlier this week I met another great guy and the e-mails have been flying back and forth. We have so much in common, just like my first guy, and I look forward to meeting him on Monday for lunch! I have a good feeling about this and he said he does also. Like many on AM, we don't want to end our marriages, but are only looking for that which has been missing for sometime.

Yes, there are REAL women on AM with stories and successes and I am happy to be one of them!

It is not entirely a scam. However, this poster is almost certainly being paid piece work for planting this obvious lie.

Less than 5% of the female profiles are real.

If you are very good looking, wealthy, charming, in your 30s, write well and are charming and perceptive, you might actually meet a woman if you are very persistant and put in many hours.

Of course, if you're all those things you could meet tentimes as many women just going out and looking.

To "Notelling" and "Wonderful",

I'm not really surprised. I'm sure there are all sorts of jerks (and worse) on AM. It's also quite predictable that women would have more satisfaction from such a site. However, many of us (men, not jerks) have legitimate complaints. AM does make fake profiles. They do use these profiles to get men to convert from free accounts to paying ones. They also use "bait" profiles to get men to use up their credits. I think that is part of the reason you see so many juvenile and obnoxious jerks. AM would be a more pleasant site if they didn't use these tactics, but they wouldn't make nearly as much money.

I've noticed that over half of the women I sent emails to never logged on to receive them. They went from "last log on 12 hours ago" to "last log on 7+days" Oddly, this never happened when I sent a "priority message". My priority messages get answered with nice messages, showing interest, asking me about my situation. Then nothing. Then I follow up, and it is always the same answer - "Things got real hectic and my mail box is full." Then nothing. Then "That profile no longer exists."

I'm actally a good-looking, charming man who writes fairly well. I can be either very charming or very funny when I wish. I always addressed a woman's desires, expectations and concerns . I wouldn't mind so much if I thought that women just preferred someone else - I'm far from perfect, however, I think it is more likely that I haven't actually sent an email to a real female client yet.

Really? I tried going clubbing, but had no success. If I could actually find a club, I think I'd do better. It's been about 20 years since I went looking, and as far as I can tell, the idea of "clubs" has nearly vanished. They seem only to exist in the downtowns of major cities now, and there are many fewer there than ther used to be. There used to be clubs that catered to older people - dinosaurs in their thirties. I remember because we avoided them like the plague. Now, there are none - just trendy bars where young people sit and chat with their friends while drinking "artisan" beers or whatever *censored*tail Washingtonian magazine tells them is being consumed by junior White House aids today.

Not true, it is only about 99% scam.

If you send messages to every woman's profile, you might get through to the one in a hundred profiles that are not run by Ashley Madison itself. If you are also good looking, successful, very fit, and can write with charm, wit, and eros, you might meet someone. But if you're all those things, you can meet women much more easily without Ashley Madison.

It is a lot easier for women. Ashley Madison doesn't see you as piggy banks to be emptied. They see you as assets. While there are probably very few fake male profiles, there are very few real female ones. Even if a guy sends a message to a real woman, and carefully and thoughtfully writes something very nice, there is a good chance that it won't even be read. The women I've corresponded with have all told me that they don't read anything close to all of their messages.

Not a scam for women...(Houston area)

When I first signed up, I received about 5-10 emails/IMs every time I signed on.
When I finally got around to posting a picture, I couldn't even individually read all of them - too much.

I'm 21, not disgusting or overweight, can pay for my own ---t, no daddy issues, and really... just really love the idea of ----ing an older guy. Rare, but yes, some of us women out there are looking for a little unconventional action. That being said, like most of the women who replied, there are creepers who aren't as charming in person or those who just send me pictures of their ---k. Although not the classiest site, there's something in the art of seduction that fails miserably with some of the users.

Anyway! There are less women than guys, so just be patient. Good hunting folks.

Of course its not a scam for women. with a 75:1 ration men to women, theres no need to scam women! *lol* The more women the site has, the better chance of guys paying and paying again. So because there are so little women around, they need to capture the interest of the paying customers, mainly the guys! Wink

One thing that GREATLY catches my attention is, There is a lot of good looking ladys on there with there face in plane view! (easy recognizable) You would think if you where married you would want to keep some discretion, wouldn't you? In my searches there (form my area) there was only one picture of a lady that fell below the average, how can that be? Only good looking ladys want affairs? Rolling Eyes

With that being said, Im sure the site is legit to a point. But remember, taking a horny guys money is easy when sex is involved. Razz

Im sure it works for a VERY SMALL percentage of guys. (because of the honorably ratio, witch is not new to ANY hookup sites) Though I have no doubt in my mind that here is a level of "fixed" profiles to capture your attention and capture your wallet as well. Not to forget the guys that sign up as women to. *LOL*

Is it worth the money they ask for? Confused When you think about it; it is VERY expensive, it would probable be cheaper to hire an escort *lol*



p.s. recently i singed up for some other site as well and caught the cheats in the act *LOL* ( i set up honey pot)

What made me think it was a scam and then gave up on this website is this reason :

I first signed in as a guest with photos and texts. I got a few winks from interesting women from my area. When a discount for the cheapest package poped up, I decided to give it a go.

So I responded to all who winked me. And it wasnt 1 month later but a few days later. I sent them priority messages so I would be sure to know that they at least read my message.

Guess what? I never got the notice telling me they opnened them. I'm 99% sure that women will at least read priority message, specially from men they were interested. I messaged a few more too that didnt wink me first, some winked me back positively. I messaged them, never heard again from them. Even once again from the notice for priority message.
I
I got collected messages that I opened who were only saying : '' want to chat with me a bit? '' when obviously I was not even online at that time. I was offline for like 12 hours and more. No logical women would send me that kind of messages. And their pictures and profiles looked real. Nothing professionnal.

I only talked with 1 real girl in fact, and she was really not my type. 170lb+.

Honestly, i'm not that unatractive. I'm not the six pack guy but more intellectual and professionnal type. And for my typo, I warned all of them that my english wasnt my main language and since im from Québec, most girls on this website from my area should also be in my situation.

Anyways, I'm sure that it can work well for some lucky dudes that may be in a really good looking shape, but for the rest, It's really more about luck and money you can afford spending on it.

Hard finding someone now...websites has fake women and going out when you are engaged is a big no for me..


Good luck to all of you.

In my opinion, if your gona have an affair, get off the computer and do it the old fashion way!
AM is designed to take your money and thats all they care about.
If your a member there take a look around, its design is the prefect way to con you in.

Someone show interest in you, you contact them, they magically disappear. (all the time)
If that is not a con artist, then I dont know What is.

Unfortunately i got suckered into this site. When you sign up, everyone messages you. As soon as you PAY for credits, good luck in trying to actual have a decent conversation with any female profiles on there let alone to meet any anybody!!! When they do respond to you, its just very short generic messages you get, no matter how much thought you put into your message. As you read through this thread, Im not the only one who seen the light, just to late for me."bye bye money" In my opinion, (seen through the eye of a full paid member) DON'T DO IT! If you do, you'll be sadly disappointed with the site!

I had paid for a basic package to try it. I had messaged a few profiles I liked and can honestly say that I have had no replies to my messages. I have been polite honest and have yet if there was a woman who is anything like their profiles describe then you would think even one out of those mails would have been replied with a few short words. I sent the messages so it would hvae bene free to just reply. Are there real women on there? I cant say that I believe that there is.Now that my credits are finished I am being sent gifts from deleted profiles and omg chat requests. What bs. My advice is..save your money

I've done internet dating for years, mainly on rsvp. In the last couple of weeks I've looked around for other sites. I signed up for a 3 day trial on Mate1 and created a profile for Ashley Madison but didn't give my credit card details. On the Mate 1 site I received a steady stream of emails from really good looking women, which, given my experience on more mainstream sites, seemed completely implausible. The same thing, but not as frequent on Ashley Madison. I didn't know there were women who were so good looking in my town. Stupidly, I looked for reviews of the sites after I'd given my credit card details to Mate 1 for the three day trial. I read tons of review saying that people had paid $1.75 for a 3 day trial, and then when they tried to cancel the trial BEFORE the end of the trial period, they were slugged almost $50 for a 3 month period. During the trial period I sent a few emails to people contacting me saying that I thought the contact was implausible. One girl (seemingly gorgeous) didn't respond to my queries but said she would chat with me...and on the Mate 1 site you get a constant stream of chat requests anyway. NOTHING like that happens on RSVP and, especially given the multitude of bad reviews about both sites online, I'd say you're crazy to sign up to these sites. I went so far as to cancel my card to be sure they couldn't withdraw $ from it at the end of the period - which would be illegal anyway, but the trouble involved in chasing them for it simply isn't worth it. Just forget them. Stick with the conventional sites.

Be warned!

I joined this site and with a few hours I received a 'collect letter'. But it was very odd because the young women was 30 years younger than I was and I had given out so little information. Also, strangely enough she gave access to a naked photo and she was extremely pretty. The other odd thing was that I'd made a mistake giving my weight as 41 kg.

Now, how is it that this young lady responds to me almost minutes after my joining? Why is she contacting me , 39 years older when there are hundreds of younger men, much more desirable? And she contacts someone whom she thinks is 41 kilos!! I'm actually 90 kg but so what. I would have been more impressed had a women within my age bracket contacted me. So my inference is that this agency is shonky. Of course, you are going to get the occasional hit on some real person but not before spending a good deal of money. And will that real person be satisfactory?

Try other sites

Well we have hit it off...we are both keen and omg what a woman. Amazing..beautiful ... The key is to observe the profiles and learn to pick fakes.. Then be honest what you want...message those women only. She was the only one I messaged second time round and weve connected..

So I read most of the post here and some say there are fake profiles on there but you need to figure out witch one are fake?!? Huh??

If its been said there are fake profiles on there, why would you want to waist your money? Who are the fake profiles, guys, girls AM staff?? The site obviously doesn't care that much that there are fake profiles on there, or they would at least try and make improvements to weed out there fake profiles. They do have members feedback, but no way to rate a member as far as bad experiences go. Now I don't think it it should be made out like a bashing feed back, but with out being able to create a fulll spectrum of feed back on a member, a guess is just a guess on who fake and who not. In my opinion there are more fake profiles on there than any other site out there. Whats also funny is, when you click on "report this user as suspicious" it takes you tho the FAQ's *lol* Whom ever is creating the fake profile on there helps the site and not the users , so if your thinking about paying AM I would strongly suggest not to. But if your dumb enough like ME, then go ahead and waist your cash like i did.

Obviously their are far more profiles for men than their are for women, so I was BOMBARDED with responses, and chose to only respond to a few that included photos. What can I tell you, except Gook Luck!

How to spot fake profiles.

AM uses them to make guys think there are more women on the site than there actually are. But I have met real women on the site, and also spent more than a few credits chasing phantoms.

Okay, here is the deal. I am a guy and I paid for some credits on AM. The company that owns AM also owns CougarLife. Most of the company-made fake profiles exist on both sites. But the pay system works differently. On AM you pay for credits to send a message. On CL you must join to read a message, and send after the first few free ones they give you, hence on CL the fake profiles send you messages not just winks.

I joined CL with the same profile I used on AM, and I was getting messages from the exact same profiles I had sent 2 or 3 messages to on AM with no response, not even a key to the private pics.

So here is what you do. Do a search on CL for the username of the AM profile you are thinking of messaging. If she shows up chances are it's a fake profile. But there is more. Check the profile on CL and if there is only the one photo and no written profile, odds are even higher. Lastly hover your mouse over the one photo and you will see in the status bar of your browser the file name. It will look something like this (the bold is mine)

http://asset0-cdn.establishedmen.com/photos/000/139/767/139767/large_0175325300612142LB49D372506C3762.jpg?2009-10-27T17:22:22-07:00

First look at the name of the picture file. Who names their pictures insanely large random strings of characters? Even digital cameras have a system. Second if the date code after the *.jpg is 2009-10-27, you have yourself a fake profile. Also occasionally the CL profiles seem to have custom blurbs, but the key is the picture file.

And as I said the same company owns AM and CL, so the overlap is enormous, hundreds if not thousands of profiles. Keep in mind that on AM these profiles will have customized blurbs and even have ratings as if they were real people, including the "better in person" designation.

So now you know, and can at least stop spending credits on phantoms. But if you are not getting any response at all, chances are you are a creepy douchebag! ;-)

some good lookin babe or guy and then you can only reply with paid credits. this is bait fro you to buy credits. I know, I spent 49 on the lowest amount of credits which was 49 bucks PLUS 16 for some bogus fee. I got no reply from this dream date. I took the bait

Theirs allot of good looking women on there and when you message them, you never hear from them. Though I have contact what seems to be real women on there, but after a few emails they stop coming to the site. I would image they are just curious women who dont really intend to actually meet with you. I guess, If it looks to good to be true....

I'm going to respond to this from a different standpoint. I work as an affiliate and send Ashley Madison a lot of traffic. I can look in the affiliate logs and see the gender of the person signing up. Every day, day-in-day-out, I see one woman sign up for every 10-12 guys. Even if we assume some of those are actually guys, women trying to find out if their spouse is cheating on the site, or some other woman you wouldn't want to meet, there are actually a lot of women signing up.

Think about it - it makes sense. Women cheat a lot - maybe not as much as men but I'll leave that to the social scientists. Women need a place to meet guys for an affair too, and Ashley Madison is a lot more private than Craigslist, and a lot more honest than someone with a "married" marital status on match.com.

If you're not meeting women on Ashley Madison, its probably down to technique. You need to approach married women differently than a 23 year old college student. They have more to lose, and probably aren't as easy to impress. ashleymadison.com is not a scam - it just take a little more work to meet women there.

The site is real, just type the url in your browser. LOL But I must say, there are to many "fake" profiles on there to make it worth while. Just like others have said on here. I get a bunch of winks and when you buy credits to communicate with them, you get no reply or a a generic reply. I wish they would help to get rid of the fake profiles but they wont. I even email them asking them to do something about it. Of course nothing happened. Being a webdeveloper/entrepreneur unfortunately it makes sense from a financial point of view to leave the fake profile there, it helps generates revenue. Think about it, If you seen a site that had 10 profiles to choose from or 100 to choose from which one would you pick.

After being on the site for a whille, I tried to pick users that are not fake.

LOL I get messages from them like; "come check me out at such and such site Im naked!"" For the heck of it I goto the site they email and of course I need to sign up. So I do, But of course they don't exist. Or I get email from them pointing to a site to buy stuff. LOL

There may be real people on there, but It seems next to imposable to actually find someone who is real. And because its a pay per contact site, you waist a lot of credits on all the fake profiles and spammers. I personally don't recommend the site.

Messy: "Perhaps you think none of them meet because none of them meet YOU".

If none of them meet me, it's still a waste of MY money, no matter how good a time someone else is having.

If x percentage of the guys who sign up on AM get no results, they are still being ripped off regardless how successful the remainder are.

The people who operate such sites know "damn right" that a fair percentage of guys have no chance of success on their site, but encourage said guys to spend their money anyway. THAT'S the scam.

I have found AM to be sort of a mixed bag. I do believe that some/many of the profiles are fakes (though AM states basically that they're not) but many are real. I have bounced back and forth on AM for about two years. To date, I have met (sealed the deal) with about nine women. I would suggest to anyone, just take it easy. Don't IM until you've had some emails. Get a sense of the person with whom your speaking. There are some profiles that just don't make sense. For example.
If the woman is married, wants discrete affair, is a professional (id est lawyer, investment banker, etc.) they why would she post a photo of her face? NO WAY, not going to happen, unless she's looking to get divorced and/or fired. Without exception, all women I met up with had no photo posted (in some cases not even with a key) and they sent them along later with email. Most regular people don't wan't to have this site up on their computer for too long, so email exchanges are another way to sort of get a real person. Lastly, if you're in your late 40's and some 19 year old is eager to screw your brains out, it's either fake, sugar baby, or a goof. Be real.

This site is not a scam. Now, while their might be some profiles tha are genereated through them, I have connected with 3 different women since I joined a month ago. And when you think about it, you are paying $50 fo 100 credits which should last you a lifetime. All three women I met, we ended up hooking up through their private emails to get to know each other better, photo share and eventually set up our rendevous.
Remember, it's just like any other dating site. Sometimes you hook up and sometimes you don't. Look at what you are writing and that has a lot to do with it

After a whille browsing the site It become more apparent. Maybe in very large cities there are better chances, but coming from an average city forget it.

I had been a non-paying member of the Ashley Madison site for about 6-9 months, sending off winks under "read my profile and if you like what you read, wink back". It does not cost anything to do this. About a month ago I received not 1, but 3 responses from the same person. Seems I had hit on a real human being. We exchanged email addresses and began chatted over the messenger services. We set up a dinner date. We met and had dinner and talked and it didn't take long to realize this woman had issues, more issues, and copies of issues. We parted ways knowing neither was what the other was seeking.

Since I had to actually pay them to contact her, I went back to sending winks. It has been 2 months and not a single entity has responded, human or machine. I have completed a little research on the internet and theres a lot of sites out there bashing the AM site. One points out in the service agreement that you will recieve winks, gifts ect. from automated profiles for 'marketing research'. Like I bothered to read the terms of service prior to signing up; I clicked agree like most everyone else. Another site points out the great gap in the number of male members vs female members (I am half tempted to open a profile as a woman and see just how many people contact me, completely for 'marketing research'Wink.

My advise is.. if you are looking for 'the real thing', hit the strip clubs and pick up the dancers or try craigs list or the escort services. You might get scammed at those too but at least you know youre being scammed by a human being, not an autoreply computer program.

Scam or not, I signed up for the free membership. When I did the advanced search limiting the search to those who have been logged on less than 7 days and 20 miles (I didn't want to drive BFE to get laid) being quite generous in almost every other area, such as 20-49 yrs old, all weights accept full sized etc etc. Only about fifty profiles came up. Whether the 50 profiles are legit or not who knows, but that doesn't seem like very good odds regardless.

I am a married guy, and can attest to the fact AM is NOT a scam.
I have met and slept with several very very good looking women from the site.
In fact, believe it or not, I am currently seeing 4 different women form the site,
none of whom care if I see other women from AM.
All they care about is getting their needs met. Because they're not getting what
they want at home.

Yes, you do need to buy credits. But be selective on which women to contact using those credits.
And you do have to have something to offer in the way of personality and looks.

They don't want a whiney *censored* who complains about their wife. They get enough of that
BS at home.
They want to have a fun passionate time, and forget for a while they're a mother/wife caregiver.
Pure and simple.

The Ashley Madison site is not worth the money they charge. They use a "credits" system - you pay $50 for 100 credits. They charge 5 credits for each person you contact. They also have a live chat where for 30 credits you can chat for 30 minutes............pretty steep fees in my book!
The site does not offer a "filter" or anything that limits contacts from only local men. Guys from all over the US are able to contact you, if you live in Ohio why bother with a guy who lives in Texas?
The site should also have a feature where you register for certain categories such as
*Looking for Sugar Daddy *Tattooed Stud Service *Old Fashioned Affair *I'll Screw Anyone *Cyber Only
You register and choose the specifics of what you are looking for but (as a woman) you are bombarded with mail from every kind of freak there is across the US. There are also lots of singles on the site, not just married people.
I am married, looking for a married lover but after 4 days on the site I have deleted over 500 emails from unwanted types. It is a waste of my time. When the rest of my credits are gone I will not "re-up".
I have talked to about 6 men who seem pretty decent but have not met anyone in person yet.

I joined the site a little while ago with the hope to fine some one real on there. I had no doubt in my mind that there are fake profiles on there, but decided to go ahead and pay for the stupid credits with the mind set there must be a few real woman on the. After email over and over again, I did find what may be real women, but IMO the “junk profiles” on there litter the site horribly, its just not worth it. The chat system is a rip off. You have to pay up front for minimum of 30 mins, and if the person you talk to is fake or just doesn’t say anything worth while, you basically lost those credits, and it isn’t cheap to initiate chat. Your better off finding a cheaper or free site with low quality profiles. You’ll get the same results just not losing your money to unknown profiles that may be fake.

I was hot and cold with AM for a long time...wondering if I could REALLY find someone decent. I was really hesitate to pay that much for it, but late last year they had a $35 sale for the cheap package, so I went for it...less than a week later, I had tangible options. Before I quit my account, I used AM to meet 3 women...and hooked up with one...and still could with one of the another others. It's definitely legit.

I can say that I find it real and sometimes to funny. Being a woman I wonder if some of these guys are real. I have been on the site 3 different times. The first time I meet 17 guys in 3 months. After that I learned some of it was a joke. Each time I was on, I was getting abt 50 emails a day. I meet several good guys and we had LOTS of fun.

I totally disagree. I have been in a sexless marriage for years and have met several really nice guys on here and yep followed thru with a few as well. Just be patient and smart about who you do and don't answer. There are plenty of REAL women on there, just read our profiles and see.

I do think Ashley Madison is a total scam.
Just check-out some of the profiles: same photo, almost everything is the same, except age is different ranging from 22 - 34 for the ssame profile and location of user is different. Also, once you opt out of receiving e-mails, all the wink and other messages stop.....and since when is Melbourne in NSW?

I'm an on again off again member. It's definately not a scam but I'm 100% convinced AM plants profiles and has a group within the organization that acts as members to get you to buy credits. In this case "Buyer Beware".

My 1st experience was very negative and I quit (actually felt guilty about doing it). Second try proved fruitful. To my suprise a lot of the really nice women appear to want a second husband (as in two husbands or two relationships at once).. Some of them were VERY bossy, expecting full-time REAL attention. This became crazy making. Here I am excited I met someone and I'm getting pushed around worse than I am by my wife.

Then I started thing about the meaning of "the affair". Through out time you always heard of someone who had someone on the side. A REAL second relationship. Einstein had an affair for years, I believe he finally divorced and married the woman. So what it is for some women is a means to explore finding, not a second husband but a REPLACMENT husband. There are a few that don't but the majority of "NICE" women I met this seemed to be the case.

Ladies: There are (from what I've heard from NICE female members) many, many pigs on the site. I firmly believe 1st meeting should always be in a public place in broad day light (coffee over lunch hour).

Guys: If you want to hook up Craigslist adult services is all you need and is definitely REAL (could be cheaper and less hastle in the long run). Please get off the site and giving guys in general a bad name.

My biggest fear is finding a financially distressed woman who blackmails me, to me the is as big of risk as STD's. You never know....

The last thing is schedules. AM should have a category in creating profiles for availability. If the schedules don't line up and you force making time, I'm convinced, it will lead to getting caught. One gal I met we could never line up calendars and I really believe there was chemistry. (BUMMAH)..

With all that said I'm signing up again. Ladies, if you are looking for a tall handsome guy in the Boston area (who's a lot of fun on a date) keep your eyes open on AM.

Yes its a scam. I was a non paid member and i got approximately 12 messages (that i could not access unless i was a paid member) so i relented and paid up. I contacted the girls and thanked them for their interest- no reply from any of them. They are simply Ashley Madison generated profiles.

How dissappointing that a company can be so decietful but then again what do you expect from a site based on deciet?

I joined AM last summer and successfully had an affair, so I quit until this summer, when I joined again, and have been seeing someone since :-))

Some observations:
1. the guy:girl ratio is ridiculous; women *without* photos get 50 messages a day. Imagine how many messages a nice profile photo generates?!
2. That being the case, I wouldn't bother contacting women with profile photos, if only to increase your chances and to save valuable AM bucks, except to wink at them and draw attention to your profile.
3. Women with profile photos are much more likely to be scams; just about everyone with a nice profile photo that I initiated contact with turned out to be a dud. Either no response, or they sent a key to see 1-2 private profile photos, or a collect message saying only "I am here" (with no follow-up, ever) or no response at all to a me$$age spent -oops- I mean sent.
4. Since last summer, I noticed *many* profiles with attractive photos that were identical from last year. WTF?!!
5. Conclusion: women's profiles with image(s) that never change are probably fake and a scam.
6. It should be pretty darned easy to compare notes, perhaps on a wiki site, about potential scammer profiles. Anybody heard of one?

Advice:
Given the ridiculous guy:girl ratio on the site, it 's almost best to sit and wait and let the serious women find you. Both of the relationships that I got out of AM came fro the woman initiating contact with me. Neither had a profile photo.

I do not have experience with Ahsley Madison. And this is not an advertisement for any other website.

I do have experience with Match.com. I can laugh at some of the claims in this thread about finding 5 women on Ashley Madison in the course of a year or something.

On Match I found about 15 women in about 7 months. All of them asked me to sleep with me. I never asked.

Yes I maybe laying. Or advertising Match. com. But I'm not. Here's why:

I was in my mid 30's, had a good job, lived in a posh area of town. I'm tall, clean cut, very fit without looking like a meathead. I feel very comfortable around women. Virtually all women I met told me the same stupid story - how 99% of the men they have actually met can't even keep a conversation going. Some can't even start a conversation. It was not unusual to hear that the first date was mostly silence while waiting for the food to be serverd. I thought that I was hearing only the stupid stories but the same story kept popping every time, from a different woman. I don't know what to say - you may not be good looking, have a great job etc. but my god, what do you expect if you just sit there and say nothing?

I think that women (at least on Match) seem to like to pretend they are looking for a long term relationship. 10 or 11 of the 15 women I actually met on Match were there to get some physical action. If something more happens - good. But most of the time they just want some physical relief.

About 75% of the women I talked to (must be about 40 total that I talked to, met only 15) wanted only to feel that they can get a man's attention before going to bed alone. Get the attention, enjoy it for half an hour and say "Good night.".

I think that for many women it's about keeping up appearances but gettting what they really want - no strings attached short lived physical encounter. A site like Ashley Maddisson does not provide such a cover.

Moral of the story - be objective. Realistic that is.

It is NOT a scam. I've met several great women on the site and had some really great sex both in person and online. That being said, there are plenty of professional webcam girls on there as well, but they often get reported and booted off. You have to be aware that there will be fakes on every site and some sites are easier hunting grounds than others. Just be cautious and don't give out any personal information until you are comfortable. There are plenty of tips I could give but don't have the time here and now. I have been successfully using dating sites for some time now and would be happy to share my knowledge but not here. If you would like advice send me an email, talldarkhorny@gmail.com. Let me know how you found me and I'll do what I can.

As a woman registered on Ashley Madison, I've e-mailed & or chatted with over a hundred guys in the past year. Most of them are nice guys stuck in a rut with a boring wife. I am stuck in a rut with a mega-boring husband and things are only worse during football season. I went to AM for ME to find somebody to pay attention to me. I ended up making some really great friends (I'm on the phone with one now) and having great sex with a couple of them. Most of the guys tell me horror stories of women they've met who were 10-20 years older than they're picture or, after a few emails, the girls start asking for money, but we real "desperate housewives" are out there. It sucks if AM is loading bogus profiles. Good luck weeding through them. We all deserve to feel good. Hope you find it.

Yeah, as others have said there are fake profiles up there. I mean who in their right mind would display their photo(not private showcase) when they're attached?? Over the last three years being off and on the site I've probably met about 10 women total. Some you meet once for coffee or something, and then they feel guilty and then its over before even getting started. Or they back out after a few emails. Then I've had a couple I met and I was the one saying "uhh, no way." I currently have an ongoing "affair" that is going on almost two years now. Started out more as a friendship/sex thing but now it's just pure sex, we meet for about an hour or two every couple of weeks (one time it was 3 times in a week...very horny!) and then it's see ya next time, which I don't have a problem with! Before that I had something that lasted about 6 months but it just kind of fizzled out...I think I got in an argument with her chatting one day..haha. LOL

For sure, even you find that person that you feel attraction with for each other, if your schedules conflict then it's really very difficult to make it work.(I'm talking something long term)

Ashley Madison gave me a free membership for a little over a year. Didn't get charged a dime for anything. After a year they sent me an email saying that I wasn't active enough and if I wanted to stay on for free I needed to start "chatting" with more guys. I didn't have to pay to chat, but sorry guys you did. It was a complete scam that Ashley Madison tries to get girls to chat and email guys and offers them free memberships to get guys to keep spending money.
That is why you will see reviews on girls which are really high and others which have nothing. Those girls are on for free leading you on. Enjoy and my recommendation is that you save your money.

After seeing one of the much hyped Ashley Madison ads on TV I signed up out of curiosity. Like so many other guys I've since read about, I was immediately contacted by a likely lady and enticed into buying one of their exorbitant credit packages in order to speak to her. After she'd ensured I'd all but used up my credits, she went silent.
I now know that she was a fake, employed by AM to reel in suckers like me. They even as much as admit to the practice in miniscule print in their Terms & Conditions where these ladies are described as 'online hosts' who are engaged in 'marketing activity'. They also automatically re-bill you unless you go through a deliberately difficult and convoluted process to extricate yourself from their clutches
So my question is, what's the difference between marketing activity and a scam? Not a lot in this case. The sole purpose of these online hosts is to persuade men to upgrade by pretending to be something they're not
Of course Ashley Madison calculate that no-one will run squealing to the authorities or law courts because of the illicit nature of the site's activity. Some might say 'serves you right'. I should have been alerted by the fact that the majority of 'women' on the site have publicly viewable photos. It is now obvious to me that any real ladies on an affairs/adultery dating site would not post a picture of themselves for all to view
The Ashley Madison operation is little more than a slick and convincing swindle to part men with their money. The chances of actually meeting a real woman with whom you might actually conduct an affair are about as remote as the hair growing back on their CEO's balding head!

I am a female and have been on AM since last April. I was dating a married man off and on for some time. Since he lives so far away and travels quite often, we don't get to see each other that much. Technically speaking I am single but got tired of staying at home decided to get on board with AM.

Well it has been keeping me busy. I am 51, still look good and wanted to go out. Trying to find a single man in my age range was tough. There aren't to many out there. Another story in it's self/

For single or married woman on this site. It's great. Unfortunately it's not so great for the men. From what I hear, they seem to run across the young single woman trying to allure them to web sites that will cost the guys money. Then there are the married women who are looking for a bale out or they are to scared to stray.

Men it is tough to find a female on a married site. Keep trying. You'll find someone. Be smart on how you advertise yourself on the site as well. Love to hear your comments.

I've been a member of both Ashley Madison and UK equivalent Illicit Encounters. I have to agree with the bulk of opinion here that AM is populated by mostly fake or scam profiles. It only really dawned on me after I had I joined the far superior IE having previously been an AM member and experienced contact with real women seeking affairs as opposed to the fakes. These ladies do not send out loads of unsolicited mail and nor do they post photos for all and sundry to see. I've now had affairs with 3 separate women all of whom I met through Illicit Encounters. Whilst on the surface it may appear more expensive than AM, it actually works out far cheaper. When you start messaging and chatting on AM you go through their credits at a rate of knots and you're probably not even speaking to a real woman. On IE you have unlimited communications and can therefore woo the ladies the way they like to be wooed - i.e. not too fast!

Priority messages are a complete scam, they set it by default and if you don't remember to uncheck it $5.00 a message.

Do not read collect messages under any circumstances.

Even if they are not fake, which they will be most of the time you are wasting you credits.

If you read it they will charge you 5 credits and then if you email the lady they will charge another 5 credits.
So if you want to contact her just email and if she is real she can tell you what was in the collect message.

As for me I have met women there and know for a fact that there are real women there so they are not all 100% fake and they are not all just teases these ladies were totally ready to go.

If you get on AM, and don't want to waste your time you had better be ready to deliver. If one of these women calls you on your offer on an affair, which is rare and hard to get, and you can not deliver the goods she will move right on to the next guy. I've lost one real beauty this way, and it wasn't that she was a gold digger, she was just out shopping and I wasn't ready. Have your cash in your pocket and be ready to act. The next time things went much better, I had my ducks in a row and was reward with an amazing head turner, it was such a pleasure to take her out and just watch the other men stare.

As for credits, well $2.50 an email sounds expensive but if you're going to be shacking up in hotel rooms and taking her out for nice lunches with a couple of glasses of wine it is small change, so if you can't swing a couple of hundred dollars to find her how are you going to spend the $500 a month to shack up?

Also consider POF and okcupid both good but not geared directly toward affairs. I've heard from women on jdate that there are a lot of married women there too but never tried.

I think I've met a lot more women on POF.
I met the most incredible nypho on adultfriendfinder.
I met the most beautiful woman I will ever be with on AM.

But it isn't easy and it isn't cheap and they try very hard to rip you off.

I just wish I could figure a way to hack it?

Well, I used AM about 6 years ago - and I am relatively certain I chatted with a real person. That said, the site is definitely "tweaked" to make it seem much more popular than it really is. They likely do have women who use this service, but they utilize these profiles to the maximum. Meaning they make them seem more active than they really are by setting the "last visited" to say 1day or something when its really been weeks.

There are a few profiles that seem to just _always_ be "online". Honestly, who's got that sort of time... no real person unless they're being paid to be online -OR- they're not really online. I work with technology/Internet application. Its _so_ easy to code this into the site.

Their mail system is deliberately inaccurate. For example, the counters don't show the real number of messages. It maxes out at "20" and there is no pagination. Who in this day and age doesn't show that there are say 7 pages and let you jump directly to page 3 for example? Thats 1995 technology... My guess is that its deliberate, perhaps not to "overwhelm" real women.

I suspect the sites Male to Female ratio is very bad. So real women get bombarded with message. And don't believe this garbage about how people get 200 messages in their mailbox. IT ONLY SHOWS YOU 20. So how wold anyone know they have more than 20? They have to DELETE messages to see above 20. You can't just forward to the messages beyond 20.

Scam or not, don't waste your time. Maybe at one time it was more legit than scam... recently though I would guess its more of a scam than anything else.

I wanted to add my two cents as an experienced and disappointed user of AM. I'm attractive, sensitive, sensible, and have excellent writing skills, so I don't think my problem was my pic or profile description. I had several women contact me or respond to my initial contacts, but had to pay $60 to really get in touch with them. Not one, out of the seven or so women, every responded to me twice.
I don't think the profiles are fake, but either there is something fishy going on, or the women who join AM are more timid than you'd expect. Either way, I blew $60 and suggest you don't do the same.

Ashley Madison is not totally a scam, although I have heard some nightmare stories about most of the women just wanting money, cars, etc. I also know that there are men who pose on there as women.

I am a female who used Ashley Madison about a year ago, and I did meet a guy. Things were great for our one meeting, but apparently he was looking for a lot of one-night stands, despite what he claimed. I, on the other hand, was looking for a discreet, on-going relationship with no strings as at that time I was married.

I am currently separated, and I am wondering if anyone knows of a good site for people who, like me, really miss the passion and crave an intimate relationship without a deep involvement. I spend countless hours puzzling over this one. I don't want to pick someone up in a bar; I don't want someone who is living with a spouse and wanting to cheat. The ideal relationship for now is to be involved with someone with whom I can share a friendship and go out some, and share an intimate relationship. I just am definitely not looking for marriage or for a dependent type of situation.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

It's BS, Like someone before me said. I got *censored* on yahoo telling me they found me on that site. I've never signed up.

My real point here is, what happened to trying to find men/women for real in your area. Putting in some real leg work? Or if you're married, keeping your *censored* between you and your wife/husband and trying to work it out or going your separate ways? No I'm not affiliated with anyone, it's just a personal opinion, I can't see the point of it for the life of me. And disagree or agree with me, but ask your self. Is it a relationship you want, or a one night stand, and if it's the latter. ARE YOU REALLY SURE, you wanna take a crack at some chick you've never heard, of seen, or known beyond your computer screen? At least if you pick them up at a bar you've had the chance to talk and maybe got to know them beyond how high they can get their ankles over their head. Just my opinion.

I think it is probably part scam/part real. I'm sure there are some women who are truly looking for what the site says it provides. However, in looking at the big picture, while I was surfing some profiles, interestlingly a bunch of very good looking women appear with their very clear and unobstructed photos. And in their description it says that they are looking for (among other things) DISCRETION! Now how can that be??? I know there are some who have their husband's "permission", but not that many! I'm fairly positive the site is "populated" with "stagers" to get our horny attention. But as stated before, I'm sure there are some real ones too. I follow the age-old trusted motto: if if looks too good to be true...it probably is. The real good looking women don't have to go on dating sites for action, they can just browse the aisles of any hardware store and pick whatever man they want.

we can pick a man off the shelves of a hardware store, but because of his religious convictions, we can't get any action out of him.

Ok guys...its time to face facts! I AM a real woman, and I have been using AM..and it has been an eye opener for me. Not the site but the men and the lack of respect many of them have for women in general. Just because I am on a hook-up site does not mean I don't have standards..there is a huge section there to tick the boxes for the qualities you are seeking. My profile says Im 5 ft 8 and seeking tall men...so why is it that half the responses I get are from guys 2 inches shorter than me! You wonder why you dont get a response? If you took the time to read a profile and only respond to those that you fit ALL the criteria for, you would save yourself a lot of heartache..
And another thing...
When setting your own profile, dont tick all the boxes. If you really aren't fussy about what type of woman you are looking for, dont think we are going to be interested. We like our men to have standards too...
I have been on AM for less than a week. I have no public profile pic. I have had close to 100 people contact me, but have only chatted to 4 of these. Of those 4 I have met 1 for a coffee; he was a lovely guy but for me it just didnt click. So dont assume any form of response from a woman automatically qualifies you for any further involvement.
I am meeting a 2nd guy shortly..and only because he is as honest and selective about what he is looking for as I am. He also showed a level of respect in our initial contact that most women require before they feel they can trust someone enough to meet them.
So suck it up all you men out there-set yourself a standard and stop coming across as desperate bogans who will jump on anything that breathes. There is nothing wrong with having a bit of dignity. The ability to spell and construct a sentence would also go a long way toward improving your chances, as would a clean shirt and a comb before you take your profile pic. Just because women are online, it doesn't make them any different to the women they are when they are at work, at a restaurant, or a club, or anywhere else you would meet them. And Im sure your uninvited lewd remarks, pushy domineering behaviour, inability to accept a refusal politely or with dignity, unsolicited pornographic images, and your general lack of manners wouldn't see you meeting too many women with any shred of decency in the real life arena either.
Maybe there are a lot of computer generated 'women' on the site to balance out the ratio a little, but, honestly, if your social skills compare to those of 97% of men have approached me, you will have as much chance with an AM avatar as you do of ever meeting a genuine, self respecting woman.

just want to say AMEN

I have been on Ashley Madison since April 10'. I am a 51 year old female who has had luck with the site. Yes you do run into those guys whose intentions are blatant. But there have been men with respect and who are sincere. I usually meet them for lunch and discuss why they are on the site and their objective. If I am interested in meeting them again I will let them know. They seem to respect my objective and if I decide not to move further with them as well.

Some of the things that bother me though are these situations. If you are married and are expecting to have the person that you are going to have an affair with to date no one else but you, get real. You are married and have no right to ask someone to be monogamous with you since you are not doing the same. You can’t have your cake and eat it to sort of speak.

There seems to be a lot of young guys who not only are attached but they blatantly show a photo of themselves and for that extra bonus, they will show their package. Trust me boys, ladies are not interested in seeing your junk for the first initial contact. Also you are taking a gamble by supplying your mug shot. What if you get caught by your significant other?

Yes for some of the profile descriptions, they really need to tone it down. This isn’t a porno site of where you are describing how you are going to please us. It’s really best to say what your objective is.

I enjoy married sites more than single dating sites. With the married sites at least you get to the point of what you want. There is really no guessing involved and both go to your own homes at the end of the day. No drama either.

Good luck with your objective.

I'm attractive, sensitive, sensible, and have excellent writing skills, so I don't think my problem was my pic or profile description. I had several women contact me or respond to my initial contacts, but had to pay $60 to really get in touch with them. Not one, out of the seven or so women, every responded to me twice.
I don't think the profiles are fake, but either there is something fishy going on, or the women who join AM are more timid than you'd expect. Either way, I blew $60 and suggest you don't do the same.



While I don't think it's a total scam, I do believe there are shady aspects to the whole thing. I've been surprised by "20-somethings" (I'm 50) giving me gifts, attempting to get me to sign up for an adult webcam site. Don't know how these fakes make it onto AM, and send gifts that normally would require an expenditure of credits when they don't have full memberships. Maybe it's a covert partnership deal with AM.

Prior to signing up for a full membership, I was also contacted by a few women closer to my age. I wrote them all nice notes as soon as I became active; oddly, I haven't received a single response. Suspicious? Yeah, a little.

You know there's something wrong when the link to report a profile as suspicious goes to a generic help page from which you have to navigate to a contact page and then enter a free-form description of the issue.

I have no doubt that there are at least some real women on the site, but they are so rare that I'm sure they're swamped by the male/female ratio.

I joined knowing that I might be throwing away my money, and now I'm pretty sure I did. For whatever reason, either fake profiles or real women who are simply overwhelmed by the attention they get, it's still disheartening to never receive a reply -- even a courteous "not interested" response. But maybe this is a splash in the face of the cold water of reality.

How to spot fake profiles.

AM uses them to make guys think there are more women on the site than there actually are. But I have met real women on the site, and also spent more than a few credits chasing phantoms....



Thanks so much for this analysis. As an IT professional, I feel more than a little embarassed that I didn't dig into the page source to figure this out myself. I wondered, for example, why there were so freaking many women all from the same locale (e.g. Fremont, CA), and why there are so many Capricorns. Apparently their profile generator is only half-baked.

So I've weeded out the phantoms, and will take the rest of your advice as well.

Thanks again.

I joined the site and was very careful with my credits. I only responded to women that sent me a 'wink', but never had anyone ever respond. It seems weird that they would 'wink' you indicating they are interested, then never respond to your email. Bottom line, I joined and never even started a conversation with a woman. $50 down the tubes....

Just a follow up to my message from yesterday regarding weeding out fake profiles...

I had 18 profiles in my "favorites" folder. I went to the cougar site and looked them all up. 14 out of 18 were listed there as well, all fake.

After reflection, I'm convinced the site is a total scam. There may be a very few members that aren't fake, but by and large the site is designed to take money out of your pocket without giving you much in return.

So, yeah, fifty bucks down the tubes, but I'm having a good laugh at myself.

Here's a new twist. I have an email account that I set up for AM and for AM only. I've never, ever, not once used to to communicate with anyone but AM support.

This morning, I got a Nigerian money scam email in my inbox. So either AM support's computers are infected with trojans, or their privacy statement has a couple of loopholes.

You do realize that email spammers auto generate their email addresses with common words, letters and numbers, it doesn't mean AM sold your address (why would they?). If you used an email service like Gmail or Hotmail the spammers are bound to generate a bunch of real addresses.

It is easy to try out. Just create an email address on Hotmail and not tell anyone. In a few days you will get spam from spammers who have guessed your email address.

I am fairly experienced in online dating. There may very well be few real people in the mix; but I share the same annoying experience many other people have talked about. I get several 'Winks' but when I write back, there's no response. After wasting like 300 bucks I have decided not to go back.

I hate to contradict some of the more adamant among you, but there are indeed "real" women on this site and, fortunately for members of the male gender, some of them do indeed know how to write. I happen to be one of them. I've met real people there (some all too real!!) and have been seeing a gentleman from this site for over a year now. I rarely respond to winks and messages, not because I am a bogus profile, but because the great majority of the males on this site too leave much to be desired. Some of us do have discerning tastes ... and are turned off by rated photos. ..................It's a matter of the needle in the haystack, my friends.

Or you could simply be another arm of the Ashley Madison marketing machine. There's no disputing that there are some real women on the site -- we men aren't the only imperfect ones when it comes to fidelity.

Your needle in the haystack analogy is applicable to so many aspects of the site. What we're really talking about here is ROI. If 1 in 10 of the people you meet are worth your while, your investment cost is 10x what it takes just to get in contact with someone.

If you happen to be male, multiply that by the ratio of AM-created bogus profiles to real profiles, at let's say 10-20 to 1, and you realize that it's going to cost on average 100x to 200x your baseline cost of merely contacting someone to actually meet a woman who's worthwhile. Put another way, if you buy $1000 worth of credits to spend on the site, only about $5-10 is money spent effectively.

Sure, there will be anecdotal comments about someone hooking up with three beautiful ladies. Even discounting AM staff making some of these, it's simple probability. Some will find someone with their first message. Some won't meet someone until they've sent 1000 messages. Most will be somewhere in between.

I've been using Ashley Madison for a week and a half and have already met up with 3 females, all three of which went well. Out of the 3 girls I met up with, 1 was someone I contacted first. The other 2 found me.

I'm a good looking guy who's in-shape, and have a profile pic which shows my physique but has my face covered (Saved the face for the private showcase), so that probably helps. Also, I live in a major city.

That said, there are a lot of bogus female profiles. I've noticed a few which seem to be listed online 24hrs a day. It's possible a few of them simply leave their computers on with that site open (Only the single ones, the married ones would be far-fetched to do that without getting caught).

I have received bogus winks and gifts. I'll get them from people out-of-state. I've also had chat requests from people out-of-state. It's possible a few of the chat requests are horny wives who want cyber sex, but I just assume it's a load of crap meant to take credits from me to chat.

I've also received 3 collect messages from girls in my area. Two were legit girls (One I met up with, the other is the person I'm describing in the following paragraph), the third seemed bogus as she read my message but didn't bother responding.

One of the people who sent a collect message was a woman whose profile pic had a girl's butt & legs (bent over) with panties, and she looked like she was in shape. She also had her height/weight ratio listed as someone who would be in shape.......Her private showcase pics, which showed her face, left me wondering, because her face looked kind of chubby.......Then I got her phone # & e-mail address, and I looked up her e-mail address on facebook. Lo & behold, she was obese.

For the most part, my technique has been simply adding people as favorites, or doing private showcase requests while granting a key to mine.......Then we start messaging one another, then trade e-mail addresses, and do further contact privately (Away from the site via e-mail). After a few messages via e-mail, I ask how they want to meet up, exchange phone #'s, and voila.

When I write a message, I'll make sure to read their profiles and write a message which relates to their likes/dislikes.......I've written maybe 3-4 out-of-the-blue messages to girls, but that's a risky way of going about it as you don't know whether she's interested, much less whether it's a legit profile, so you can easily waste credits that way.

With the girls I met up with, I talked sex with them, but not immediately. When I first talked about the likes/dislikes on their profile, I would talk about those sexual interests in a somewhat vague way, they'd respond, and eventually they'd open up and we'd talk openly about it, even going to the point of what their fantasies are, what types of things they've done, etc.....You need some tact before laying out the gusto.

Also, I try to avoid female profiles which have interests such as "Sugar Daddy" (Alarm bells should be going off on that one), "Fine Wine/Dining", "Romantic Walks", etc.....I'm not looking for someone to date, nor a new wife, nor am I looking to lavish a girl with money & gifts. I'm simply looking for some sex on the side, while also being cool with them and being friends, in a sense. I guess an accurate term would be f*ckbuddy.

It's not a perfect dating website, but if you don't fall for the BS, if you look good, and if you live in or near a major city, it can be used to your advantage.

I have a male friend who's not overly attractive, and he gave me access to his profile.......I saw most of the messages he sent to women were lame 1-liners, along with his e-mail address attached (Asking them to contact him there). I told him he needs to change his technique.

Also, was just looking at my AM profile, and I forgot to mention this.

I have around 120 females on my "favorites" list......I've only corresponded with around 10 of them. There's another 15-20 who I traded "private showcase" access with.

So, with all that, do the math.......I doubt the ones who didn't respond were all bogus profiles, but it's logical to surmise at around half of them are.

AM is NOT a scam. I have met many women on the site and had great sex with some 10s.
I also had one or two 4s, never again, lol. Posters down on the site are those who have a bad game to begin with. AM is not going to fix your poor attraction skills. Learn some pick up skills and use the site to the max. It does work.

This site seems to be a complete farse. I have been on typical singles sites, and I get dozens of responses every week. On the other hand, on Ahsley Madison I never get any responses, even after sending 100+ winks and emails.

I like the idea of having a married GF so I don’t have to put up with all the daily BS, but this site is a complete waste… you;re better off at the mall.

I am a woman. And I went to Ashley Madison in response to their banner ad "When Divorce is Not an Option" that caught my eye. It is true that the ratio of men to women on Ashley Madison is not balanced. However, I received a message, corresponded, met and have formed a great relationship with a fabulous man. We are both married, to other people, and do not wish to change our status in any way. Our relationship is an addition to our established lives. Not a substitute or fantasy. We are friends, lovers, and simply enjoy each other's company. So, there might be many people on Ashley Madison who are not what they claim to be. But there are some who are real and just looking for something that they do not have. So, like with anything in life, be aware of your instincts. If something seems too good to be true, it usually is. In my case, I found it. I was lucky. Good luck to you.

After reading all 14 pages and just being suckered in myself, here are a few things I noticed:

Frown As stated before, there are plenty of female accounts "online" all the time. Given the nature of the website, I find this highly unlikely.


Geek After readying all the posts here, I see a theme for younger women (20's) contacting older men (50's) If I was AM, the men in their 50's, from a disposable income aspect and aging marriage, would be my target male demographic. Coincidence? I'm skeptical.

Rolling Eyes Has anyone else noticed that of the female profiles with pictures, there is an odd similarity to the way the "marker scribble" covers parts of thier face? I also noticed the same shade of pink used quite a bit.

Idea ...awful lot of new female profiles popped up in my 20 mile radius after I joined but before I paid.

Question And I'm sorry, what exactly does AM stand to lose with their $250 guarantee? You hook up or they give you back the money...big deal for them. And isn't that in some way a form of prostitution where the pimp keeps all the money?


I certainly don't doubt a few people have had success, but I would bet my 401k its a REAL small piece of the pie chart when compared to crafted, fake female profiles and AM's "bag of tricks."

Like most things in Life, nothing is black and white...but generally various shades of grey. So it is with AM. The way I see it, AM is definitely not an open, honest site, and (equally) AM is not at the far right of the spectrum of complete SCAMS. But it is a SCAM. The site does have some value and you can get laid if you wish if you understand the some basic stuff, make the most of the best features and avoid the pitfalls. Let me say from outset that I am an average middle aged guy who has managed to have a lot of sex and dates since I divorced 4 years ago on various dating site - I'm single. I agree with most of what has been written here. I joined AM a week ago and paid $20 yesterday to buy some credits and play the game. I had sex on my first day of this site...it wasn't that great. I was horny ...what do you do? Lol. I'm an Aussie and I have no affiliation with anything to do with any dating sites. I don't screw other guy’s wives generally, but I did once and felt guilty. I don't want to open that door again - even though there were no complications that I knew of. I joined this site purely as a dating site and to find the single women that exist there- not to chase married women. Many other married women (and men) on other sites say they are single on their profiles. How do you know either way - you don't. So I don't get flustered about AM being for flings with married people. Here are some observations about AM from my week or so of studying and using this site:

Re: Ashley Madison Scam

CONS: Like other sites (Be Naughty etc), AM is loaded with professional photos of 20 something year olds. These profile are fake and UNTIL you get your head around the lay of the land about how AM operates, that can be very frustrating - it messes with your mind when all these apparently real hotties are online but none respond. When the penny drops that these profiles are fake and just "window dressing" you soon realise ...hey....it’s just a form of advertising. It’s not that different to the glamorous, shiny, colourful wrapping of a "not so great ice-cream" or a fancy label on a bad bottle of wine (for e.g.). Yes I agree that a fake profile is a fake profile is a fake profile.....it’s a lie...true....but this is a freakin dating site and that is the lay of the land. Even on the best dating site, the women can lie about every facet of their life. And yes there is a difference between the SITE lying and the women lying. At least the SITE doesn't want take all of your assets. lol. Fake profiles are an enticement to get the guys in the mood to open their wallets....that's the end game. If you haven't got your head around the fact that AM is trying every which way to fleece you of money like all paid dating sites...then maybe you should cool off and maybe you shouldn't be there.

Other sites can be free (Plenty of Fish, Oasis etc) and you are more likely to score by taking your time with a suitable match (appropriate for your age ....all you middle aged guys) and not some hot babe that is either unobtainable or simply is not real. The openly dirty girls can be very disappointing - in a accordance with the very nature that put them on the site in the first place. The idea that the "loose" girls or the "fun" girls or the "horny girls" are all on sites like this is soooooo misplaced. Other sites that have more "conventional" women still lead to a great lay. Usually better. Good girls and bad girls are also on the other sites...the women who are “angels in the kitchen and sluts in the bedroom” just don't want to be labelled "bad girls". So if it's sex that you're after, dump the idea from your brain that you have to be on a site like AM. Getting a hot date purely depends on the effort you put...on any site. But all roads lead to sex...if you want it. So don't get too focused on the window dressing and the fake profiles...turn your Radars onto max gain, use your head and work out which profiles are real....and pursue them.

Finally, the AM site is guilty of misleading labelling on the various BUTTONS and various options within the website on your profile as well as misleading definitions in the HELP menu as follows:
CONS
1. It states in the HELP menu that automatic billing does not occur....and it doesn't in the sense that they don't automatically deduct a monthly subscription. BUT as I have shown above, once they have your credit card details, they automatically bill you by shoving an annoying pop up window in your face that says nothing about further payments YET automatically bills your credit card if you dare to remove the window from your face by pressing CONTINUE to get on with your session. What an outrageous rort. It does not say, continue with a credit card payment or continue to buy an amount of credits...nothing. Just "CONTINUE". Incredible.

2. AM claims that there is NO COST in contacting a girl that you have already paid contact for. BUT very sneakily, they fill the inward mail of all new male members with "COLLECT MAIL MESSAGES" from stunning babes. After you open a couple of these, you realise that your credits are reducing and that it is costing you 5 credits (or about $3 on average) to open a message from a fake profile that says "Hi" ....that's it. Just Hi. They don't even give an email or an intelligent sentence or anything that leads to further contact. You pay and get nothing but a sense that you have just been had! These emails are obviously initiated by the administrators of the site and serve as baits for uninformed new members to lure them into using up their credits. The whole practice is very distasteful and underhanded. THEN, it costs you another 5 credits to SEND THEM an email – but you have already made contact and paid for it. So this is at best a misleading practice - it’s a scam.

3. For a while I couldn't work out why ALL of my messages were costing me money - even the ones to members I have contacted. They are very sneaky. They make all the mail options preformatted to be PRIORITY MAIL - the ones that cost you money (5 credits) and put your message above others in the receivers IN box. The priority classification is denoted by a small purple flag in the top right of the email that you are about to send. So every time you press the MESSAGE ME button to write an email to someone, your email is setup to cost you money when it should be free. Down the Bottom are 2 large buttons: One just says SEND and it does just that. The one next to it labelled “FLAG message Priority Mail”. When you put your cursor over that button, an "explanation pop up” says that this button will cause you to SEND your message priority mail for 5 credits. So you think you have 2 SEND options – a free one and an expensive one. Therefore, as you don't want to pay 5 credits because you have already paid your 5 credits to make contact, you simply press the normal SEND button only to find that indeed you have been billed 5 credits, when you think you have avoided the costly option. Why - because although it looks like a SEND button that will cost you money, the PRIORITY button is an on/off button for the purple flag that you have to have to press to change the priority mail setting to turn off the cost on each and every email. There is nowhere in the HELP menu that assists new members in how to avoid making these continuing payments or just utilising the free mail via a normal, free CUSTOM email. It’s a scam...and cleverly designed with reverse psychology and complexity so as to extract your money. The button that you use most on the site is the SEND button – so AM cleverly tie your cash register to it.

4. So in summary, what does an initial contact with a girl cost you on AM???? Well if you're not careful, you will pay 5 credits to receive a message from a fake profile of a deliciously sexy and "way too young" babe. Then you will want to write to her and so pay 5 more credits to initiate contact with someone who you have already initiated contact with, and then you will pay 5 credits for the next email because they preformat all mail as PRIORITY to extract more money and the next email and the next and so on.....until a light bulb goes on in your head...or perhaps you never work it out. IT MAY COST YOU A FORTUNE. I spoke to someone who had no idea that she had been sending all of her emails PRIORITY, so I guess the girls are equally ripped off. Overall, the site is sneaky, misleading and in some instances blatantly breaking the LAW.

5. If you want to save some money on AM, don't turn off the option that allows you to receive COLLECT MAIL under the Manage Profile BUTTON. Leave it on to receive all mail. Then if you think it is from a fake profile because ....well...the photo is just way to good and too professional and she's so freakin young that it just doesn't add up (DER) then just delete it that message – don’t open it. If you think you have a chance, simply note the girl's profile name, also delete the message and save 5 credits. Then just email her for the usual 5 credits and ask what her initial message was. I bet is was nothing....like...”hi”. No skin off her nose and you've saved 5 credits. Then on each email after wards to that girl, make sure you turn off the PRIORITY MAIL scam thingy. The most you pay is 5 credits for a contact. I can live with that.

Well as long as you have read the above posts and you keep a level head and don't get lost in the ridiculous thought that some outrageously young babe really wants you when there is actually no hope in hell that will happen, you can then get on with finding the REAL profiles and you will find some lovely people out there. They may only be a small percentage of the total number of profiles, but they are there. And they play around if that’s what you want. I personally will be chasing AM through the CREDIT CARD FRAUD avenues. As you can gather, I don’t give easily on things and they picked on the wrong guy. I quite enjoy taking corporations to the CREDIT CARD police and other avenues like the Ombudsmen and getting my money back. I have a 100% record with banks, phone companies etc. Look...if I don’t win I don’t really care but I like to let the fraudsters know that some people will not take their disgusting code of conduct lying down. It’s good to bring the bad guys under the spot light of the Regulators and watch them squirm. Otherwise all of this whingeing on sites like this forum is just hot air and the bad guys are laughing at us.

Keep it real and good luck Gentlemen.

As an anecdote to my previous posts, I received 2 emails from the AM administrators regarding my complaints to the site about:

1. the misleading use of the PRIORITY Mail function and
2. the automatic debiting of my credit card via the default option on the MANAGE PROFILE - PROFILE OPTIONS page with the CONTINUE popup when the credits expired.

I was given bonus credits and everything was refunded.

In hindsight, I could have researched the sub options of the site more carefully before using it and I could have been more careful with my selections. BUT overall I was acting as an average customer with average computer knowledge. Therefore, I think my results would be fairly typical and I would hate to think that so many people are subjected to this sort o nonsense. In fact ,reading the previous posts, In think I came off far better than most - I got my money back. But what a waste of time and effort.

Overall, the system is setup to take your money through clever site design and via scamming tactics. Yes you can still get laid, but many other sites don't have the same miserable codes of practice that this site utilises. With other sites, your battle is purely with the women - on AM your battle is with the site administrators. On other sites you pay a subscription (like Sugardaddie or Benaughty) and then you just get on with it. Money is the last thing you think about after your initial sign up fee. With AM there is a horrible feeling that you are being continually scammed by some dirtbag watching your every move when you're logged on. Its a sordid business.

So I would recommend that unless you are willing to do your homework (which starts by reading all the previous posts on this review) avoid AM and go to a more conventional site. Girls just want someone to understand them - get that KEY and truly invest in knowing them and you have all the sex you want. Think twice about having sex with a married girl - make sure you can live with that. And I'm no freakin angel.

Cheers

Lets use some common sense and honesty here.

Most of you posting here could not get laid on AM or any other site.

You use the Internet as a troll.

You have no style at all, you are gross most of the time and think women are there just for you.

You could be holding thousands of dollars in your hand in a whore house and most of you still could not get laid.

Wise up, get off the Internet and go out and meet real people once in a while.

Definantly not a scam. I wasnt on there long, but did have a 100% closing ratio with the girls I talked to. Two real girls in my town, sex with both. Now, both of them were single.... never met a married woman on there that I closed with. So maybe there are some scams, but there are also real women on there as well

Try this if a "person" gives you their email address to talk off of AM...use an email opening notification website. There are a few. They not only track when an email was open, but the ip address and what area it is in. Needless to say I found quite a bit of shady details going on. Emails bouncing to more than 1 user in different parts of the country was the biggest surprise.


Be careful....possibly not AM, but scams are real when using AM.

My last post was removed...I said that I have joined AM....and have had a bunch of collect messages....I have replied to a few...with no responses. I also have had several winks..but no responses. I find it strange that a bunch of the same woman are always on line. I mean always. I also found it strange that so many woman show there faces. I am puzzled by this, as who in there right mind would show there face on a website devoted to cheating. I am also starting to think this is a scam review site that AM runs as well. That is the only reason I can see my post being pulled...because I felt it was a scam. I have bought the package...and have not talked to a real person yet. So yes I am starting to think it is a scam.

I'm real and had an affair for over two years with the same man, turns out he was getting buys with many others on AM as well, so since i'm real then I guess it is possible to meet someone stupid enough to shack up with a married man..

A rip Off! You can put a P**n star in Prada still a p**n star. You join for free as a guest. Have to but credits to communicate with members. Credits start at $50. First responses will be from so called "members" sendin collect messages trying to get you to buy credits to respond. Women are always 400 mi. away, to good to be true, and 20 years younger than you. Remember the join for free stuff? To delete any trace of you from their website will cost you $20. Stay away from this bull*censored* scam artist.

So I can tell everyone that AM is a scam, and prove it.

By now you all know how it works, sign up, check it out, pay some money to read messages. But what are these messages?

http://i.imgur.com/xpcJ3.png

It will be some "girl" offering you to "chat" (in this case in German since I am in Germany) which costs about $60 per hour. She will conveniently have some pictures for you, like this:

http://i.imgur.com/gqDvl.png

Wow, could be interesting, but wait, let's run this picture through Google Image Search and see what comes up...

http://i.imgur.com/ZUDwH.png

OH SNAP!! Looks like somebody just took pictures from Flikr, and cropped them. But why?

The ONLY plausible reason is that the "person" either works for AM or is getting a cut of the chat money, quid-pro-quo.

If this happened just once then I could dismiss it, but every single "woman" who contacted me was doing the same thing, sometimes Flikr but often porn website pictures would be used (the racy ones, not naked ones).

So, I would say the AM probably has a few people who go on forums like these and say "hey I don't know why but I got laid there a few times, it worked for me" but who are you going to believe?

So, I can tell everyone to stay away from AM and don't spend any money with them. Oh, and Paypal won't refund your money, so don't use Paypal anywhere ever, use your credit card, you will have a better chance of getting your money back.

NIce legwork to the above!

I will say I am a mid-40s male and have met a few women on AM over the course of the last couple of years. Some profiles are legit, but it's my sincere belief that the majority of female profiles are indeed fakes. It takes some time and experience to be able to spot the likely fakes.

So right .It is so obvious the collect emails you receive right after you sign up are fake and the pictures are copies.After you pay in to the site and be able to read the messages and reply,you never gat to hear from them.I am sure there are some real ones mostly 200 pounds or more.I spent $40.00 so far but you should save your money.

A few years ago AM was worthwhile but now ...

I'm a married female who used the site 3 years ago and found a affair partner. In those days a woman didn't have to buy credits, but could exchange messages with a guy who had paid for credits who initiated the conversation. I was always polite and responded to men who contacted me even if there was no potential there, just to assure them that I was real and that there are a few real married women on there seeking affairs.

My affair recently ended and so I went back to the site expecting the same type of experience. Instead what I found was that after being on the site for 4 days, they blocked my access to respond to messages.

So here we have these poor guys wasting credits on contacting me, and I can't even respond unless I buy credits!

I was debating buying credits but I think I will look elsewhere to find an affair partner. I apologize to any men I was unable to respond to.

OK guys we need to help each other out here in a world women have an unfair advantage. I have been on Ashley Madison long enough to know what really goes on.

Collect Messages:
Don't open any Collect Messages on AM. First, women don't make an effort unless they are interested. It takes some conversation for that to even begin to happen. So a collect message will not be from someone real.
Recently I even caught AM at their game. I kept emailing back questioning if they were real and they kept trying to defend their profile never admitting if they were for real or not. Eventually the profile as usual disappeared. If it was a real person then they would either not reply or get upset. Also would not give me some marketing line like "best wishes in finding your playmate". I have never heard a real woman say that to me. If you ever get any collect message please do not waste your credits. It is either AM making money on your credits or some loony woman you never get a sane line of conversation from.

Hidden Charges:
Make sure to uncheck the priority email option when send a message. AM automatically checks it for you (how nice) and if you send the message you will be charged double the credits.

Make sure not to run out of credits, if you do you will not be able to send any messages even to those you already paid for.

Profiles

What profiles to stay away from (likely fake)
Profiles with only general information. A woman who can not do the minimum amount of effort will not be worth the major effort you will have to put in the end. Most are likely fake as why do much if you can get guys to drop credits anyway. Stop doing all the work, women need to do something, come on ladies get off your lazy ass and be apart of something.

OK now to the real women on AM

An affair is more difficult for a woman than a man so they will be hesitant. They likely have the security of the husband to fall back on. Or just too afraid to do things that are not comfortable. Then there are the ones that are too good for anyone and enjoy turning guys down. Some just like the attention they get from all the winks and email and just sit back and read emails. I say to these ladies GET REAL. All you will have in the end is loneliness and bad attitude. If you come across these types put your foot down and let them know this is not acceptable. Be aggressive, don't take the crap. It is funny how many replies I get when I get flippant. They don't have the time to reply when you are being nice, but boy they can write messages when you put them on the spot. To my amazement women are superficial, look at all the profiles that want buff guys with six packs that are 6 foot or higher requirements. And we get put down for wanting a pretty face.

Just so you know I have met plenty of women on AM, the actual count so far is countless emails, 8 lunches, 3 long term, and 2 intimately. Now what was the quality level: not high. Compared to the single women I have known as a married man, married women are not highly intelligent at least in conversation, not very secure, and not that much fun

AM says don't go to an escort have an affair. I don't like the idea of going to an escort and avoided it. OK lets do the math. A 22 year old escort usually has a near perfect body, is easy to get time with, you know what you are going to get, and there is not a long courting process. OK you will say it is cheaper to have an affair. Escorts are expensive at $140 to $160 found in online ads. Lets look at the cost of an affair. Lunch at leas once or twice or more $30 to $50 a pop especially with some drinks, hotel room (married women are not going to go anywhere personal) $80-$120. She may want some presents from time to time,throw in another $50. We have not even added in the cost of AM which will be minimal in the end. Total for one round just for a chance of getting some quality time $110 minimum to more likely over $200. Just one intimate experience after all your trouble and you are already around an hourly cost with an escort. Not good odds, not sure if worth the hassle, inconvenience, and risk of your wife finding out about an affair. On one of my lucky adventures for two hours of love making it cost me $80 for lunch and drinks and $160 for the hotel room; total $240. I bought plenty of AM women lunches without so much as a thank you (what kind of manners is that?). Ladies if want free lunches just sign up on AM and go out with random guys.

The few I have been with always wanted to see me regularly (I always do my best), but I just did not see the experience I received worth it. It was ok, but not as good as my single women friends that were more energetic and creative in bed. With women it all comes down to motivation. If they have a hubby to fall back on then why put the extra effort. I don't know about you, but I don't need another wife.

Escorts although unreasonably priced are looking more attractive. Now you are saying what about the closeness you feel with someone you know. I am still looking for that quality level among the married women I have met. There is a reason why married women are on AM. If they were so attractive they would have left their husband already (divorce is more commonly initiated by women, it is usually to their benefit monetarily) or found someone in their neighborhood or at work. Have you heard of a work husband? That is how normal women operate. The women I have met on AM all have their own problems (mental issues, insecurity, needing attention, lack of understanding of men, being boring people, over weight, unattractive, uptight, controlling...) it is not their poor husbands. I only met one that really had a bad husband and she ended up divorcing him. See what I mean? She was actually the most fun, but now she is single, she has options, and does not want to be with a married man. Why should she, I understand it.

There are nice women on AM, however statistically it may be around 0.01%. Yes if you win the AM lottery and you are the guy she decides to give it up for then congratulations. I am not sure it is worth the years of typing your brains out for on emails.

Otherwise, I say look for single women. There is a free site called OKcupid which has some married people on it. That is where I found my single attractive lady with a great personality. BTW I don't work for OKcupid, just a happy customer, besides it is free.

To answer your question, the women on the site are real, at least the ones that I met. But one major problem is that are 7 men to 3 women so it is very hard to get noticed. Depending on the picture that the woman puts up she will get from 3 to 8 hundred emails in a couple of days and those odds are horrid in anyone’s book.

Another part of thier scam is that they have some opt-in option hidden somewhere on the site, so when I figured out the odds and used up the rest of my credits they automatically charged my card. They have a check box that you can select to always keep you “refilled” with credits which I had unchecked when I first signed up but apparently there is a second hidden one. As with all these type of sites they are in business to steal form you and assume that you won’t do anything about it. You’re better off in a bar.

I checked out this site for a couple weeks. I saw one woman's profile where she was apologizing for not answering her messages. She said that she had over 500 messages. It seemed that anyone local had a very generic profile and no pictures and never answered any messages, including opening them. Costs a minimum of $49 to start and they don't tell you that they charge $19 to drop out of the site. If the site is not a scam I feel it is still a ripoff because the ratio of men to women seems to be way off if one woman receives 500 messages. Almost every woman's profile stated they were looking for the bad boy type. Which to me is a guy who acts like a jerk and is always in trouble. Don't waste your money on this site. I'm betting there are 10 guys for every woman on this site.

AM is not a scam, the problem is that there are a ton of guys and just a few women. First, the trick is to write something in your profile. Make it light and fun ( at least that is what worked for me) 95 percent of the profiles I received had nothing but boxes checked, no creativity whatsoever. I chose one because he was cute, the other I chose because in those few paragraphs he had my heart racing. Second, I created a real profile and I also created a fake male profile to see what the women were doing in their profiles. On my real profile I got 267 messages within the first few days, on my fake male profile I got 4 messages Frown So, yes guys, you have a lot of competition. Is that a scam? I don't think my guys would say that, but for the other 265... maybe.

I can't prove it's a scam in the true sense of the word (fake profiles), but it is designed to suck as much money out of you as possible. Here's how from my experience:

1. I couldn't figure out how to sign up without having to pay the $19.95 mobile option so my $49 cheapest membership was actually $69.95 + taxes.

2. It said to first contact someone via a message it was 5 credits. It actually takes 10 off your balance.

3. It says after you send a message, all other messages are free. My second message to my first contact cost me 5 credits. I just signed up and was wary of the site, so haven't messaged anyone else.

4. The $49 for 100 credit option is gone when I look at buying more credits, and the least amount I can buy is now 200 credits.

I'm pretty sure I'll spend hundreds, if not thousands, on this site to ever get an actual date, let alone get laid.

I have had affairs with numerous gorgeous women since I started pursuing extramarital activities 2 years ago, after 15 years of inattention. NONE OF THESE WONDERFUL WOMEN WERE MET ON ASHLEY MADISON, NONE. After 2 years only 2 women have communicated with me. The site is s total rip off and complete sausage fest. There are 100 dudes for every women. Many of the female "profiles" that look hot are fake. Ashley Madison censors criticism of its service, and does nothing to improve the site. Ashley Madison's search features are really poor. The site has not changed in over 2 years. The personal profiles are painful, crude, and dumb. The winks on Ashley Madison are completely lame. Did I mention the site is 99% men? The profiles on Ashley Madison allow no differentiation and don't convey anything about the person, man or woman. You can't find anyone except "ZAFTIG" women, which really should read HUGELY OBESE.

So if you are A FIREFIGHTER with a BIG MOUSTACHE looking to do a married OBESE 50 year old Tuesday afternoons, then ASHLEY MADISON IS FOR YOU!

If you are good looking professional man then save your money and look elsewhere. ALSO AVOID the site Established Men, it is also a scam by the SAME company.

I started using AM in Sept 2010 after an affair I had with a close friend went sour. I went several weeks sending what seemed to be endless emails with no response. The females with photos I figured had to be fakes. Who in their right mind would post a pic of themselves if they are cheating.

Finally after 3 weeks I got a response. The woman was a bit older than I was looking for but we became friendly. We met but not much happened. More of a friendship than an affair. We kept in touch and actually have wound up sleeping together a few times. I would consider it more of an illicit friendship than an affair. She has met several men and had affairs from the site.
G
I deactivated my account until January. I did not send any emails though. One day in early jan a woman my age (early 30's) contacted me! We began to talk and soon after met. We had a short intense affair for 2 months. She was as real as could be. Attractive, generous, sexual and friendly. She was looking for a little more than I was able to offer and we mutually decided to end it.

I stayed off the site for a month or so and decided to go back on and send some emails. I didn't get many responses for a few days and then got one. I also had a collect message and a few winks. I wrote back to the woman who contacted me and we swapped yahoo chats. We talked and swapped pics. I thought she was too good to be true. She was my age. Local. Amazingly sexy and a high sex drive. We met up fro drinks and immediately connected. We are now involved in a high intensity affair. We have promised each other this would be sexual only.

Nothing came from the other winks and collect messages. I have deactivated my account again.


So - to sum things up. You can have success on AM if you weed out the BS. Are patient, and just be nice. I take a very friendly approach with women and it seems to work. Men greatly outnumber women on there so you need to stick out a little and not by the size of your *censored*.

Enjoy AM. I certainly am enjoying my new found puerto rican princess!

It’s been covered but I can only reinforce the fact. I have had zero satisfaction on AM and have tried several approaches.
I can and have put more than 3 words together and mostly get back a 2 word reply and then they just vaporise. They don’t log on or remove their profile and now after being critical of AM in a message there has been no messaged coming back to me from anybody I message so I am thinking that AM is scanning for derogatory text and punishing the author. I wont be buying any more credits.

I'd just like to go on the record to report that AM is not fake nor is it a scam site. I'm a dude and I have had success. There are many, many, many, others that are obviously fake. If you can't even read a message when you create a login, the site has shady practices and isn't even worth it.

Like many have said it's like fishing, you have to be patient and deliberate in whatever you do. They have multiple options for communication but really you need to spend some money to have success but you still have your options. I signed up roughly a month ago and didn't go with a big package and as a result I had to add more credits. Ultimately I still saved some money but I have far less credits than the deal so it might be best to take the deal. That being said I have been successful with the help of the site so it is absolutely real.

Things to consider (repeat of others posts but totally true)

1.) Now while I will agree that many of the female profiles on there seem like they are fake or robots think about this; I read a few different reports where men created fake female profiles to see what the women were seeing. Size up the competition I guess, so you have to figure that into the numbers.

2.) As with any of the sites like this the male/female ratio disparity is phenomenal although it doesn't seem as pronounced with AM.

3.) Don't be a dumb ass, think before you type. Not just of what women may want but what you want and try to be eloquent. Most women do not think like men they are creatures of emotion, one word can trigger a proxy chain of thoughts if you will.

Tips:

1.) Be patient and don't seem obsessive, just be easy going that's what you want anyway. The winks and favorites can work but you'll do best with actual effort and messages.

2.) Again, think before you type. Don't be a blunt object, there's plenty of those out there. Don't be long winded either, want to write a poem you'll probably end up with something cyber only. So if that's what you want then I guess go for it.

3.) I can't stress enough to be relaxed seriously. If you're relaxed the words will pour out of you in a relaxed manner, everything in the human experience translates from the inside. If you're all bound up you're going to push women away, no *censored* (I'll save more for a life lesson sometime).

4.) Relax your standards a bit and know what you have to offer. Knowing what you have to offer will change your confidence level and that will directly effect your success rate. Everyone judges on this regardless if they are consciously aware of it or not. Read a little about body language and then observe you'll see what I'm talking about. In the meantime while you're learning that there's a hell of a lot more to communication than grunts and nods relax your standards, you're not going to bag a super model.

5.) Come up with a strategy for each woman you decide to try to communicate with. Try different strategies, be persistent but not obsessive (relax).

That's what worked for me and I am an actual person sitting her on the weekend on my laptop writing you this message out of kindness because I like this site and it has great info. All because of people sharing.

Good luck!

So if you have read this far you will have realized it's divided. As many have said there are lots of FAKE profiles in AM but some, only some, are true. So it is hard and most likely cost you a few renewals before getting something, unless you know how to avoid the BS profiles. Here's my real experience. After about a week or so of paying membership (the lowest membership I could get) I had a real reply. I had a few before like: this may work, send me your pics and lots of winks. This time I sent the email and the lady replied right away. We met right the next day and had lunch. Then we met for a sexual encounter. I ran out of my membership money and that was all I got, so the rest either ignored me because they're bombarded with emails or are NOT REAL. Probably the latter applies to most of them. The good thing is that I still see the lady I met. But that one out of all of the messages sent. If I had missed that one then my story would be completely different. Not to be pretentious, but I consider myself a good looking guy. I'm of athletic body type, work out regularly and never had issues getting laid before I got married. Many people called me a "player" just because they saw me with different girls constantly, although I never considered myself one because it was all fun relationships not me playing with their feelings. I also hold post graduate degrees and make 6 figures. All this crap I'm talking is to make clear I'm not getting responses because I'm some ugly or looser trying to get lucky by using the site. I get lucky in the real world, the ONLY reason I paid for membership is to avoid having to go out to get laid and run the risk of being spotted by friends since I'm a married guy now. The funny thing is that after I ran out of credits and didn't buy for a week, all of a sudden I received a collect message. I had the impression it was going to be a fake profile but couldn't help but renew my membership. Once opened it read Subject: "Hello" Content: "come say hello". Pure BS, I don't think any woman interested in meeting me that sends me a collect message will just write that. Your chances of meeting a woman are low. I spent $79 for 200 credits. At 5 credits / message that's 40 messages I sent, to get only one encounter. Thats a 1/40 probability or 2.5% chance . That sucks, but if you are well attached, it may be worth it. If you are single, get your ass out to Clubs and don't waste your time here. Maybe try match.com or something similar. As a single you have a better chance of meeting a girl in a club if you are good looking. If that doesn't work then just go to Craigslist and CAREFULLY pay for sex. It will cost you less than AM. So there you go! If you are willing to spend about $200 for a chance to meet one lady it may be worth it, just be very careful on whom you contact. Look for profiles with custom messages and that look real, not like a myspace girl profile message. Spending the money in AM may be worth it if you are married, but my recommendation is: - DO NOT reply to winks. I never hear back from them. - Initiate the contact yourself but ONLY to profiles that look real. - Avoid collect messages - If the profile has a public picture of a woman with a clear face and is marked as attached female, chances are she's NOT REAL. Unless she wants to get caught by her hubby. - When you run out of credits do not renew for a while and have fun receiving collect messages, that way you'll know those profiles are fake Smile Maybe some one else has a different experience but to me it seems women that send winks are false. Those are my 2 cents. P.S. I wrote this real quick so hopefully it makes sense. Geek

I'm not sure where you're getting that this site is a scam....
I'm a married (yet unfulfilled) woman, currently on the site... I'm smart, secure and successful (and I've been told, quite sexy)
I am currently talking to 6-7 different guys and have met 2 in person so far (and was intimate with one....) both were good experiences and I am certain they'd say the same.
I am 100% real - and quite happy that I joined up.
If you're not getting the results you'd hoped for, take a look at your profile. Are you too negative? Too forward? Too cocky? Trust me, as a girl - these are major turn-offs....and we will *not* initiate contact... (never mind respond to your "Access To Private Showcase" requests...).
Please don't post a pic of your crotch - and *don't* tell us how you'll "satisfy" us - or how you can "go all nite long".
Trust me, if we like your profile, we will find that out all on our own. ;-)
Don't listen to people saying this is a scam - it's real and it works.
I'm (quite happy) living proof.

I think it is a scam. I'm a good looking guy ripped to the core I figured that it would be no problem for me on this website to get laid. After I paid my money I received a several interested women I email them back and nothing. I looked at some of the pictures and thought those are too perfect those are fake. After a week nothing. I have gotten laid more just on my own merit and more contacts on myself than this BS website.

Total scam oh well I'm only out 49 bucks. i would stay away form this website I'm a model and couldn't get lucky so to the average hard working Joe i say to you save your money.

I am sure there are a few women on AM who are really looking but for the most part it is a joke... I have sent out about 40 winks and messages and have gotten one reply... the others were "interested" until i joined then they became very scarce it is primarily a scam...

Ashley Madison is the worst site ever! I had an account there for some time now. I tried to upload a abstract picture to have as a profile pic. I guess some how they got so offended that they deleted my account. Still had them stupid credits left too. They didnt even give me the courtesy of an email, just hit the delete button! All over a innocent abstract picture. There such a horrible site, no customer satisfaction what so ever. All they care about is "give us your money" and who cares about the quality of the site. Fake profiles every where, yet they delete a REAL PERSON!? What gives?? Ashley Madison is a pipe dream, the site is set up so horribly you cant even give feed back to bad or fake members. So how are you to weed out hundreds of fake profiles? They dont care, just send your money and shut up, is the attitude you get from them. Funny thing is, im glad they deleted my account. Life is short, save your money!

I have been o that site for a couple years now. I've sent out over 200 queries, never to even get a "sorry no thanks" reply. Not 1.
I've been on other sites and some the ladies there at least have the courtesy to answer my query, even if it's to say "not interetsed".
I find it hard to believe the ladies of AM are ALL that rude, unless their all fakes.
Once my credits are gone, I have no intention of renewing, throwing good money after bad,
The ladies there are ALL bots, IMO.

I've been a non paying member (woman) on Ashley Madison for eight months now. I have met some awesome men on the site. The quality of men can't be beat. I have had an ongoing affair with an amazing man for many months. Not all women on the site are fakes or bots - trust me. I'm neither. I love the the site and highy recommend it.

Well, in just over two months on Ashley, I've chatted with a couple dozen men, met nine in person, and hooked up with six of them. I've heard there are 'fake' women, and even straight up prostitutes on there, but I know I'm for real! Don’t be a creepy perv right up front, and you may do better! Also, nobody will believe you if you lay out some line about long walks on the beach, etc.; we all know why we're on the site!

I am a woman who has been on AM.There are many more men than women on the site I got over 200 replies in 24 hours. But even for women some of the profiles are definitely fake and I know that for men there are heaps of fake profiles. If the woman has pictures that look like she comes from a porn site she's most likely fake.The most important thing is to be able to write well that is what attracts women on an internet site. Yes a reasonable picture helps. The other danger for men and women are the private investigators who peruse the site and post profiles to entrap the unsuspecting. My advise BEWARE you may get more than you bargained for.

I've had an account on AM for about a month now, as soon as I joined I received about a dozen winks, so I decided to join up so I could reply, but none of them ever reply back. And again as soon as I became a member I started to get a flurry of woman sending me winks again asking me to initiate contact, so I reply with a simple message to initiate contact and nothing in return.

I know the odds are tough on a site like this, but it's un-heard of to have 5 woman in 1 week sending you winks to initiate contact, you reply and then nothing in return.. And I noticed as well that some of the winks were coming in at very early hours of the morning, like 5-8 am which are strange times for a woman to be up and winking people on a cheating web site... My conclusion, there's probably a lot of real woman on there, but AM bulk the system up with fake robot profiles that periodically send you wink and collect messages to get you to start using up all your credits... My thoughts are if you don't strike a conversation of more than just 1 email with someone after buying the first 100 intro credits then give it up...

I am literally begging anyone reading this to NOT give your hard or even easy-earned money to Ashley Madison. I honestly believ 95% of the positive reviews were sent in by AM representatives. Now, AM is not a scam in the sense that you can’t get laid on that site. But it only improves your odds by about .00001%. And they have so many tricks and traps, you may find your initial $69 gone in about 24 hours and then what? You have to pay MORE. You are better off just looking on your own. ANd how ANYONE can write a positive review when they ADMIT that AM actually sends you FAKE emails from FAKE profiles to get you to pay is beyond me. If you live in a huge city there are probably many ways to meet married women–look for them, don’t waste your time and money with this site which is obviously run by people who seriously want to rip you off. And if you live in a sparsely populated area, the odds are so miniscule that an attractive memeber of the opposite sex is on this site, you’re just throwing your money away. AND DONT BE FOOLED BY THAT COLLECT EMAIL by the hot photo–yes she looks like the pretty girl next door and not a professional model but thats because AM knows how to rip you off. After you pay, she will NOT respond to your reply because she was never real to begin with. These people are con artists. STAY AWAY FROM ASHLEY MADISON!!!!! The sad part is, by the time North AMerica FINALLY realizes that is a scam, the criminals who run this site will be millionaires–dont help them out. Please.

We now had a relationship 8 months! We are both also still married. We meet as often as possible, and we found exactly what we were looking for, plus more! Razz

I spent over $700 on the Ashley Madison scam and all I got were several fake messages. I never met anyone. I am 27 and good looking. I went to Ashley Madison because the women in bars want relationships and I want women who just want sex. Oh well, I guess I'll have to go back to the bars and lie to women that I want a relationship so I can have sex with them (and then hurt them later).

If you are too judge-mental on the site, it probably explains why you were there in the first place. live free love free; free your mind and screen your calls whether its on A-M or any other site. let us not for get the internet was made for porn. In other words sites aren't cheep and every one has a hustle. Probably because in real life stuff isn't cheep and everyone has a hustle. Some paying bills other daring to live better than those who lack imagination and practical application. Quite honestly. It is probably easier to get laid on a routine runt to the filling station than it is to get a date on the net; however where's the challenge in that.I mean you only have a few women to choose from and there is always the possibility that your neighbor picked him or her up also. Now you have that uncomfortable silence amongst friends. Where as on the net you can date internationally instant global opportunity at the tips of your fingers. Without contracting STDs. If physical is your thing then physically get out and work yo thang. A great man once said it this way" find your inner pimp". I will simply say stop hating and start participating. Other wise as, another great man said "Have a coke and a smile and shut the ................ up.

95% sure it's a scam, at least for those in Australia... I suspect they have relatively few real members in Australia (if any), and as the sites founder notes, "it's normally about a 2 to 1 ratio of men to women"... On top of that, I've read elsewhere that most women who want to have an affair much prefer the man to also be married, as he is putting his own relationship at risk too- therefore more likely to be respectful of discretion than single guys... In summary, the odds of a single guy in Australia (which I am at the moment) meeting someone via this site are less than zero. (Maybe I should try misrepresenting myself as married to increase my chances?...) From what I've actually seen on the site after being a member for over 2 months- very suspect... I've received some winks/messages from women in the US and Canada (why would they bother and why would I waste credits replying?), and some "local" where I did reply (using my credits) only to hear nothing back! Also, the large majority of profiles I've seen have face pictures- hardly very discreet if you're legitimate, and have little or no information "in my own words", just the basic info selected from the checkboxes... I think the profiles are a combination of outright fakes created by the sites' staff, and copies of legit profiles from other countries/states just modified to suit my location- all designed to soak up your credits as soon as possible. Sure, there might be some real and local profiles in there, but it would be a very expensive process finding out which ones... All in all, the site is probably more legit in the US and Canada where they have a much larger population base when compared to Australia. As for me, don't fret, I've had far more success with REAL people on Adult Matchmaker Wink .

I went on there in 2005 and met a woman within two weeks. We had an affair for about 9mos. Three months later I met another woman. I eventually left my rotting marriage and married the woman I met on AM a year later. Short version, it worked for me, but, that was a few years ago. Seems to be MUCH more $$ involved now than then. I never spent more than $50 on the whole thing. Hotel spending is a separate matter

THIS IS HOW TO IDENTIFY THESE FRAUDULENT PROFILES:

- they tend to be logged on for days at a time
- they will send you collect messages, even though you've communicated with them.
- they use similar face-blocking image edits.
- if they do reply, it's usually an invitation to 'cyber chat'

Ashley Madison, another reason for the divorce rate to increase.

Divorce rates are so high because most women are emotional drones brainwashed by Walt Disney and Hollywood. They aren't in tune with who they really are and therefore arent able to be the slut they really are inside for their man....ergo...staying together cuz they are open with one another and aren't threatened their partners fantasies and desires.

The site is a total scam, unless you like fat and/or old women. Most of the attractive profiles are fakes. I received mail enticing me to reply which ofcourse costs money, but this person never even looked at my profile. Once I joined, the minimum $49 plan just to see, the communication from the attractive females stopped. I am 6 foot tall muscular attractive guy, so its not like Im ugly. The only ones looking at my profile is old, fat women or women looking for bi guy for their bi husbands, yuk. Keep your money and hit the massage parlor, the ending wil be much happier.

It's not a scam at all!

I'm a good looking 29 year old woman who has only been on for a week. Let's just say, I've met up with some off of the site. I have every intention of going with the relationships and seeing where they go.

It's easy to write something to a woman and just a matter of one word will put her off and that's it, you wont hear from her again.

You just have to give it a try and see where it goes for you.

Ok, here's a summary of my Ashley Madison (AM) experience.

First, AM is expensive. Users must purchase "credits" that are required for any meaningful interaction with females. An introductory bank of 100 credits costs $49, about $2 per credit. Sending a message to a person of interest costs 5 credits. Women are able to send "collect" messages, and to open one of these costs 5 credits. Sending a response costs another 5 credits. In other words, a guy can burn through 100 credits pretty darn fast.

Second, in Southern California, the overwhelming percentage of attached females on AM are not the sort that most men would find attractive. Excessive weight in abundance: women who are 5'4" coming in at 200 pounds or more. They are the majority.

Third, about 90% of the females are looking ONLY for cyber sex, so if you are hoping to have an actual meeting and exchange of bodily fluids, this is not the site for you.

Fourth, there is an over-abundance of single women looking for a sugar daddy. Given that there are sites designed specifically for this sort of arrangement, I can't figure out why these women are on AM--or why AM allows them to be there.

When I bought my introductory 100 credits, as was pretty certain that I was wasting $50, and the last several weeks have confirmed the fact.

I joined Ashley Madison and within a few weeks met a woman and had a pretty neat affair with a lady whom I shrared excellent chemistry. That relationship ended after about two months and now I am having a problem with success on AM. I know that the men out number the women probably 5 to 1, but it really irritates me when women won't acknowledge an email. I did not go for the garruntee and so each email is a modest investment.

The one thing I really like as a married man on AM is that I can be completely honest. I have nothing to hide and I have found a few truly like-minded people. The problem is as fast as they put up a profile, poof...they go away. Lack of confidence,fear...well deserved I am sure.

I have been around Adult Friend Finder (more like a 10 to 1 male to female ratio) for years and have met a number of women there, but a real, chemical connection was often missing because I couldn't be honest about my situation.

For what it is worth, be yourself, be real and you have a chance to to be successful on Ashley Madison. It is just not going to happen when you want it to!

Find me on AM as Nightiis

Ashley Madison is defo a scam, so much so that they send you out seperate emails suggesting that large numbers of women are interested in you, but despite the fact that these are showing as online, they never speak back or chat, or reply, after you have brought credits, and no new women ever appear in your area either, is just the same made up ones, avoid at all cost!!

I've met several women via Ashley Madison. However I think most of the profiles on there probably are fake. Using the site successfully involves being able to tell the difference. I rarely bother with anyone who hasn't written something about themselves rather than just ticking boxes, or anyone who seems too good to be true, and if I do contact someone I make sure to write a personalised and well-written e-mail rather than something obviously cut & pasted. People with feedback in their profiles are also more likely to be real.

Whether the fake profiles are generated by the site or by users (probably teenage boys) is something I wouldn't like to guess at, but the site does delete profiles and refund credits when a scam is drawn to their attention, and their continued business depends on their reputation so I suspect it's not the site.

As with most 'adult' dating sites, I think if you take the view that about 10% of female profiles are for real and 90% chaff you will be in the ball park. That still makes the sites a workable proposition, if you're prepared to put the effort in. Still a better bet than a singles bar, in my view.

Also bear in mind that any halfway attractive real woman is going to be inundated with messages, which is why even real women are more likely than not to ignore most of what they receive.

I would not recommend the site. I have been a member for 9 months , chatted with maybe under ten women. Mostly foolish with whom I was contacting at first. tip : be realistic on who you can match up with. I did meet up with two women , they were actually single. One was a one night stand , the other I seen for a couple of months. I never been contacted ,I intiate. I have tried and refine what I say and how I say it. Probaby should take down that picture of me in the bath room in front of the mirror! lol I don't contact anybody who is looking for a sugar daddy. More cafeful now that my credits are getting low. Will I re up , not sure to tell the truth. I was messaging with this knockout , just felt in my gut it wasn't for real. I researched until I found "her" photo online. Sent whomever a nasty message and reported it to AM. The profile was taken down and I was refunded my 5 credits. Tip : be careful , as stated before - if it's too good to be true , it probably is. Can't say for sure what the ratio actually is but I would classify it as a sausage fest. Heard before of good looking women getting a ridiculous amount of responses. How can one really compete with that ? I do find more and more singles there. Thought it was for married people.Maybe AM should make it more worth while for women. The bottom line is money for them so I wouldn't hold my breathe , that's why there are the phoney messages from women to get men to join. But I find that on most of the "just get laid" dating sites. Tip : learn to weed through the profiles , try and find the legit ones. With dating , you're gonna pay on one end or the other.

I have been on Ashley for almost 2 years. I bought the affair guarantee package and still have at least half my credits. I don't use the chat feature on there however. I am now having an affair with the fifth married woman I have met on there. I have had sex with all 5 of them and there was only one of them wanting to leave their current situation. These are some of the best girls I have ever had the chance to meet in life and will remain good friends with all of them. I am 54 years old and the women were 55, 48, 44, 43 and I'm with the 40 year old now.

How can you call AM a scam just because it has not worked for you? About a year ago I met a wonderful married lady on there, we developed a wonderful relationship and are still good friends now. I have met others and there are many "real" women on there. There is no doubt that there are "scammers" on there also, but AM can only do so much to police that. I am not supporting AM, just sharing some real experiences. And stated previously. you have to present yourself as "real" if you expect to attrct real. Cool

I joined Ashley Madison, bought the credits and starting sending out requests to possibilities on their site. Did not receive much action until one of the posts really caught my eye. It seemed perfect for me for many reasons (age, weight, height, interests, location, etc.). It took a bit to get a conversation going but finally was successful. We messaged back and forth for days until I finally became suspicious. Due to many hints that I will not go into, I sincerely believe that this person (or whatever) was staged by Ashley Madison (works for them) to keep me buying credits and stringing me along. Believe me, I have some pretty STRONG EVIDENCE to support such a claim. I totally believe that there may be some real people on the site, but they are loaded with false individuals scamming potential victims. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY!! I lost $120.00...kicking myself in the *censored*!

I have been on it for a while. I met one woman and we have been having a wonderful time. I have talked to a few others that were definitely real but I did not meet. Perhaps there are plants but I haven't noticed it. Most of the profiles seem very legit.

It is a site where there are obviously way more guys so it is not an easy site to meet someone on , and the women are likely bombarded with messages so they can be very selective. I have a friend who met someone off the site as well.

Ashley Madison is not a scam. As a woman on that site and i will tell you, there are WAY more men on there than I can handle. The man to woman ratio is really off. And I get bombarded with messages and end up even getting yelled at because I didn't "pick" them or whatever.

I have met two men on the site and both were really amazing guys.

If you think it's a scam because you aren't getting anywhere, it's like because of A: You aren't putting enough info on your profile, B: You are overwhelming the girls with pics of just your *censored* and not trying to start a real conversation (which happens to me ALL THE TIME), C: You're not appealing to the right kind of girls, D: You're a prick (another thing I see a lot in my inbox) E: All, none, or some of the above.

Hell, maybe they do have some profiles just to keep you guys buying credits, but I haven't seen any kind of messages that suggest such things to me.

It seems many men *censored*ume the site is to find married chicks that want to have the freakiest sex of their life. Most of them, I think, are just looking for a good time in and out of the bedroom. Not just a f*ck buddy.

I am very picky and very selective. I guess it's a site that just works better for the girls. I'm certainly enjoying it. Big Grin

Be patient. It can take awhile. I have started some good conversations with a few guys, but I don't have the time to date all of them!

My experience of AM. - NEGATIVE

I was just looking for some azz when I travel. Yes it is tough with a ratio of 100 men to 1 woman on the site. Also don’t fall trap into buying credits, they will bill you again when you get low regardless of whether you stated not to. Most of the women are fake, maybe 2 percent are real. You will get constant collect messages. That is what makes you buy the credits. Don’t do it! It is all staged, read on people....this is no place to date or get some strange azz. IT DOES NOT WORK. The guy when made this site is a generous as hard up dudes looking for some will actually do anything...even put their marriages and life on the line. It is actually hilarious.

So to point out:
-Don’t buy credits! You have to give them a credit card! Are you crazy?!?!
-Women are not real, period.
-Do not open collect messages.
-Do not give out your phone number until other communication has been established. It may be someone trying to bust you! Think about it…
-Use other devices to get off, Craigslist, Backpage, Youporn. Cheaper, way cheaper
-Be cautious…you don’t want to wake up in a tub of ice with a note that says...”call 911, thanks for the kidney”.

Best of luck!

I used the site for a little over a year and have had great success as far as meeting men goes. However I was recently booted from the site. When asked why they said "certain things I was saying in my IM messaging was not appropriate for the site" this site stresses how discreet they are and yet you are reading my private messages and quoting me? All I know is there are real people on the site but I would be weary of your privacy there.

2% real 98% scam.. OK, here's a couple of things to keep in mind. Have you ever in your life, known any halfway attractive women (married or otherwise) who found it difficult to meet men to have sex with? The answer, of course, is no. Meeting men isn't the problem. Meeting men who aren't simply, shallow, emotionally unavailable, porn addicted, ...holes, is. I'm not saying that there aren't good people out there...I'm just saying a website like AM is arguably one of the largest concentrations of guys on earth, that a woman isn't looking for. The reason I say 2% real, is that I actually was naive enough ( there have to be others like me!) to join, submit a profile, etc. I'm fit, very attractive, travel a lot, and unfortunately in a virtually sexless marriage. Within 24 hours I was inundated with, what seemed like, hundreds of messages from guys who had to have been recently released from the sexual offenders wing at Riker's Island. I especially liked the one, who after chatting a few times, began to subtly hint that he was looking for someone to defecate on his head. Call me picky...

First of all - check the box that you do NOT want AM to contact you for "market research" and get rid of most of the scam messages.

They do not lie about the fact that there are fake "market research" profiles on there - they are the ones that seem to be logged in 24/7 - don't waste time contacting them.

Also - with the male to female ratio so far off - it is VERY rare for a woman to have to initiate contact - so collect mesages from women are probably fake.

Beyond that - I have had a LOT of success on AM. I have about a dozen close friends (men and women) who frequent the site and have had equal success. It just takes a little work and skill. I have been in 2 separate long term relationships and have filled the gaps with about 4 additional women in 3 different cities that I met on AM. Sure - I had to weed through a little chaffe here and there - but it was worth it.

Don't bother with the "affair Guarantee" that one IS a scam. Rread the fine print and add up the numbers and it is obvious why.

AM is NOT a scam. How do I know? I have been a "client" (though I've never paid a cent) off and on for four years. I started out as a typical lonely housewife looking to have an affair. I learned the ropes about how you guys operate (most are clueless considering you are he ones paying!). I never once sent a message, collect message or even a wink. I never had to - the men come to you! I'm not saying there aren't legit females on there who might send messages, but you don't need to open any collect messages, and I'd be suspicious of any female who has a paid membership, it's simply not necessary for women to pay! That said, I will say that I'm sure that MANY of the men that contacted me might think AM was a scam, simply because I didn't respond to, agree to meet, or choose them!! I met with LOTS of men and even had sex with some of them! I even had two long - term affairs (10 months and 18 months). Now, I did keep a profile on from time to time during those affairs, to keep tabs if my paramour was back on. Most men are very dim about that sort of thing and will put the SAME profile back up looking for more women even though they told you they took it down, and so did you. I learned very quickly to always have 2 profiles up. So yes, some profiles may seem "fake" but I don't think AM is generating them. Your wife, girlfriend, affair lover, or even your boss could have a profile up to look and see who is on there. Be smart! If you're on a cheating website, don't think everyone on there is being as straight up and "honest" as you are. And frankly, most women on there could care less how many credits, coffee dates and hotel rooms it's costing you to bed them. If you're not having luck, read AM's tips on how to use their website, be selective and most importantly, don't post any pictures that make you look remotely like a mass-murderer. Studies show women trust men who smile (showing teeth), and do not appear threatening or to be hiding something. Good luck! Smile

First of all I did meet two women on here. It took awhile but I was finally successful. I am 63 and met 51 and 45 year old women. Though they were both attractive I didn't feel comfy with the 51 year old. On the other hand Miss 45 and I have become lovers and great friends.

Regarding a scam... there is a lot of scamming on AM making it difficult to find someone. I get requests to IM but when I suggest we do it on Yahoo or AIM where it is free they back off. Why? They are scamming me out of my credits. I get real nice emails from women "collect". So after I pay to answer back they block me. Why? I send nice emails and no lewd pics like many men. Well it is obvious it is another scam to get me to spend credits. They block me and move on to another sucker.

Over time I sent out over 500 winks and many emails but only got 2 good responses.There is something wrong there. I post a nice pic. I am not ugly, in good shape, and send nice messages. I send winks to women of all ethnic groups. I do not discriminate because of race, weight, etc.How is it I only get 2 good responses? The fact is even though there are legitimate women on there looking most are just scamming for AM. It is obvous.

You can be successful on AM. Use winks as much as possible. Only use credits when it really seems like a good possibility. Cool

PROOF ....Definately a scam. The rules of Ashley Madison are that you cannot send messages if you are not a Full Member. Full Membership is marked by an AM logo on a members profile. I have received several messages from guest members (not full members). How do they pay for these messages if they have not deposited any money into their accounts? On top of it these members were very interested in my profile, but once I paid to open their message and paid to reply to it, it was never responded to again. And don't tell me that me reply turned them off when it was only "HI, how are you." At roughly $3 per transaction this could net AM alot of doe with these fake profiles. AM cannot say that these are scammers on their site either, because there is no way for a scammer to profit off of creating a fake profile and then what? paying to speak with you????? On top of this there are several profiles with the same pictures on them. This site is BS to the fullest.

ASHLEY MADISON... YOU'VE BEEN CAUGHT..... BUSTED.

Actually not all of the women are fake, I'm one and I've been on plenty of dates, unfortunately with a bunch of pervs, NO I REALLY MEAN PERVS, Though I stil believe that the site truly does create false profiles. Well, to the creeps I've met, it's no wonder they go outside the marriage to get laid, can't get lucky with me but I do get some nice dinners on them. It's fun, go for it. The object is for the men to spend money and eventually they will. Arrow

Yes, it's fake. I think the idea behind the credits system is great. But, I've had 5 or 6 examples, where someone has instigated conversation. Which has cost me 5 credits to open the message and 5 to reply. Then, when I respond, nothing.

For those of you who do not know AM, basically unlike other sites where you pay a fixed fee for a month or 3 months etc. You receive so many credits for your money. Lets say $50 for will have 100 credits, and its's 5 credits for each message you open and 5 for each message you send. BUT once you have sent a person a message, then its free to send and receive messages to that person.

With that in mind, you would have to be unlucky if 6 people messaged you. You responded and then NOT one sent a message back. Bearing in mind it costs them nothing. Also I had 2 gifts within an hour. From the same state in the USA, and I am based in England.

I think people are employed to make you use your credits, well I won't be renewing. Had more success from free sites. Stick to the free ones, or revert to the more conventional method, face to face

It's not a fake site. I'm a woman and have met several men on the site, one of which I'm still seeing. We have been having an affair for almost a year now. The sex is out-of-this-world-AMAZING and keeps getting better. We both have lousy sex lives in our marriages (for medical and other reasons) and aren't willing to leave our spouses for that reason alone. That makes our "relationship" work. There are no encumbrances that come with dating someone, we are of course friends and enjoy the other's company and conversation, but there is no pressure. The site works if you are honest and state exactly what you're looking for. That's the whole point of it, you can be as honest as you want because there are no pressures of trying to find your life partner or marriage. I would recommend the site, if you go into with your eyes wide open.

This site has more shills than you can count, sending collect messages, initially and in some cases even after chatting on other services. So the imperical evidence is that there are people, SHILLS, likely located in India, SE Asia, and the like, who are likely paid on a percentage basis to cause the large male user population to consume their credits. It would likely be very difficult to definitively prove this but user beware. Are there any actual women on this site? Likely, but the number is likely relatively low, which is why there are SHILLS.

I don't think this is a scam. I've been a member for several years and have met with several women both in person and via chat. I think there are a lot of people who get accounts due to curiosity but never pursue anything. Some people just want to look at pictures. Non-members can get credits by having them given to them. I have done this and actually had it done to me as well. You do get unlimited messaging once you have communicated once. I have seen profiles come up after a year and I can still send them messages without incurring new charges. I have even seen new profiles come up (different information, tag lines, user name, etc) but because they were submitted by the same individual I can still communicate with them without incurring charges.

Are there a lot of flakes? Yes. Are there folks who really have no interest and where you can waste your credits? Yes. Is it worth it? Hard to say. On the one hand, it is good because so many people are in the same boat (married and with discretion needs) on the other, there are many for whom the idea of cheating is more attractive than the reality.

Hi Guys,
I am a very real, intelligent and reasonably good looking woman who is on AM (and I can spell). Over the past year I have chatted to quite a few men, met a few and had 3 affairs one of which was brilliant and lasted for 8 months. My husband has never found out nor have any wives as I have always been incredibly discreet and take no risks.
There is nothing odd about me except that I am one of those women who desires an intimate, open and fun physical relationship and I am not able to get this at home.
My advice if you want to connect with a real woman is to put as much honest information about yourself as possible and please don't show us pictures of your ...... If you have a sister imagine what would make her laugh and make her think 'hmm I bet spending time with him would be fun' , that's the kind of thing to write.
Good luck
x

(and no I do not and have never worked for AM in any capacity)

Is Ashley Madison a scam? I was just wondering if the women on this site are actually real and want to have fun with no strings attached?

It looks good but I want to get a few opinions of people who have actually paid for and used the site.

Thanks

JR



Dear Friend,

It actually works and it's for real!!! I did meet several ladies in no time and had intimate relations with 3 of them aleady. At this time, I've been dating one of them for the past year and are having a blast, getting together an average of twice a week. The trick is to always be a gentleman, and care to the woman's need and NOT your own. Follow these simple rules and you'll be very successful. Good luck!

Ashley Madison is a total rip-off. I tried the website and like on many bogus sites, started getting collect emails. I finally joined and every email was something like "Hi, how are you?" Opening each one cost me money. I replied to each one and got zero answers. Then I was contacted by three woman and all three were hookers. When I quit the website they charged my credit card $19 as some sort of exit fee. AVOID THIS WEBSITE.

I also noted the same bogus letter posted on two other websites that were critical of AM, stating this guy loved the site. So they even come on sites like this and post bogus letters.

I understand that some claim to receive "come ons" from "artificial profiles" who simply entice them to buy more credits. If you read their disclosure statement when you sign up they do tell you they send out "artificial profiles..to conduct market research......and enhance the users experience. That seems a bit dishonest of them to do, people join and pay to meet REAL people to have an affair with.
I also understand that like every other website there are those who are there simply to fleece victims.
Ashley Madison worked for me!
I'm a nice looking woman, 45, 160 lbs and 5' 9" tall. I was not getting what I needed at home (physically) so I decided to give AM a try.
I posted a recent photo (no face) stated that I was looking for a lover to share a long term affair with no desire to break up anyone's or my family. I received hundreds of responses, most of which were deleted immediately. I chatted with some, met a few and developed a relationship with a man who has been my lover for over a year.
The sex is great and we have become good friends. My lover is a great guy in so many ways, he just wanted physical attention which, like myself was not being had at home.
Sure, my lover and I tried everything to spice up out marriages with no results. We each also attempted to try living celibate lives, that did not work.
Like myself when "Dan" decided that celibacy or divorce were not options he decided to see if he could find what Ashley Madison said they could help you find - I lover to have a discrete affair with and "no strings attached".
We are both positive that we would never have been able to find who we were looking for on our own.....exactly where do you fo to meet someone to have an affair with?!

If a guy like me can find a young, beautiful, sexy and vivacious lover then I would say that any man can find a woman using Ashley Madison's website.
After a few years of attempting to engage my wife of 28 years to "get physical" with no results I decided to give AM a try. I opened an account and sent out some contacts and at first got very few replies. I did get some "come ons" from what I considered to be obvious "artificial profiles" and I did not respond. I emailed with a few women and met them and discovered that women tend to exagerate about their appearance. Why post an old photo and fudge the details when the person will eventually meet you and discover that you are what you claimed to be....about TEN YEARS ago?!
I also found that some women are obviously looking for more than what they claim to be looking for.
A couple women I met were very obviously NOT happy in their marriages and it wasn't just the sex that was a problem, that was more than I wanted to deal with.
I did not give up and after about 6 months I started chatting with a woman who I almost did not contact at first because I considered her to be "out of my league".
I'm an overweight middle age average guy and I'm still amazed that my younger, very attractive lover finds me desireable, this woman could have had any man she wanted!
I will say that of you want to find a real woman then you have to be real about yourself.
Don't just check the boxes offered, write a simple introduction, include a recent photo and don't try to knock off too many years or pounds when you give a physical description.
Take your time and be very up front about what it is you want from the start.
Like anything worth while you will have to work and be patient to get what you are looking for.

I've met four women from AM and three were willing to get undressed with me and have some sweet fun. That's the good news. It is not a total scam. The bad news is that the ratio of men to women is overwhelming. It used to be when you logged on the site they would say something like, "130,000 members are logged on now." Well, if you used their search tools to see how many women were logged on, you would find maybe something like 500. Not great odds. As such, the women get pretty picky here--and prickly. A simple query like, "would you like to chat" will most often be simply ignored. But when answered it is often cold and mean--full of bitter invectives. For some reason, many of the warmest and most polite responses come from Canadian women--especially rural and small-town ladies. So if you are just getting started at AM, I would propose you start there. One other bit of advice, I've heard from several women at AM that their boxes are filled with men who get verbally rough and raunchy right from the start. Perhaps there are some women that really enjoy that sort of talk. But the ones I've met have said a slower more romantic approach is more effective.

I don't know if it's a scam or not but certainly not worth the fees that you have to pay. They even charged extra for the mobile version for a smartphone and it's pretty crap. Keep hold of your hard-earned cash and don't bother with AM.

There could be real people on there, but not as many as they would like you to believe. The bad thing is you cant do anything on there without credits and once you buy the credits they will use tricky and misleading ways to get you to unknowingly spend them. Theres better sites out there that are free, trust me.

Sex or not, Ashley Madison will definitely **** you. They keep raising their already too high costs of everything and are always working on taking financial advantage of men who join the site. When credits started at $50 that was already too high, I can't believe they want a lot more than that now. They even charge you to chat on their site!

I was on there for a couple of years, probably posted some details in this forum before about how they cheat men (one example: "hosts" are fake profiles Ashley Madison uses to contact you, and trick you into buying expensive credits--$50 or more--just to write the fake profile back).

Last year I finally put an end to my membership--I guess--I remember that I could not delete my account, I had to set it to hidden or something because they actually want to charge you more money to delete the fricken' account!

Seriously, Ashley Madison is a site all men should boycott. The "real" women on there years later were the same ones as when I first joined: cyber-only types who are on there almost all day every day. Maybe they are sitting home all day with their fingers in their twats and never leave the house, or they are fake--either way, not what I was looking for.

Ashley Madison is not a scam. It contains just as many scammers, hookers, cam girls and undercover gay guys pretending to be girls as any other sex site. I was on it for a couple of weeks and had two solid hookups. While there certainly are alot of scammers on the site (cam girls, hookers, sugarbabies, etc) the site is legit and there are plenty of real women starved for attention there.

There ARE Real women on Ashley Madison, and there are REAL men too!
First I will say that there are things you have to watch out for
#1 - Stay away from the "Chat" offered on the site. That is the money pit.
#2 - Be HONEST about who you are and what you are looking for. Don't waste people's time lying about your age or weight because if/when you actually meet the deception will be obvious. Who wants to start a relationship dependent on trust with LIES!
#3 - Don't be LAZY! A.M. offers you "check the boxes" type of choices regarding what you are looking for, clicking the boxes ONLY indicates that you have no imagination and are lazy. Take the time to write a few paragraphs about yourself, what you would like your affair partner to be like and what kind of relationship you are looking for.
#4 - Read between the lines. The danger for women (who are looking for a long term affair) is there are men who will say ANYTHING to get them into bed. If a long term affair is what you want then TAKE YOUR TIME. The players who want to "hit & quit" will not want to waste too much time getting to know you and if the sex doesn't happen quickly enough they will most likely move on. The danger for men is that too many women are UNHAPPY in their marriage and are looking for a REPLACEMENT. Keep your ears open and actually listen to what they say, you should be able to pick up on their intentions if they whine and complain about their marriage too often.
#5 - Post a current picture. Don't be stupid and post a photo of your FACE on your open profile. Anybody (including your spouse) can open an account for free and surf profiles! Put a full body photo (not naked!) on your profile with your face cropped and send your private photo to interested parties only after you have exchanged a couple emails.
#6 - Don't settle for less than what you want! This is a huge choice and step to make and why settle for less then what you want. Sure, you may not get EVERYTHING you are looking for but pick which preferences are not important and stick with the ones that ARE!
I am a 46 yr old housewife who has kept herself in good shape. I spent 3 months on A.M. looking for a long term lover. I talked to a few dozen men, met a handful and really connected with one. My lover and I have been in a relationship for going on 2 years and things are great!
YES - Ashley Madison worked for me and you can make it work for you too! Good Luck!

They require you to PAY to cancel your membership.

$20 for a "discrete" removal.

That says all you need to know about them.

Sure, you can probably over time meet someone (or several) legit people.

But in general terms, they are out to make money by blackmailing you.

I have noticed that most attractive girls advertising on Ashley Madison are working girls or are working for various websites. What they do is promise you great sex but first you have to verrify your identitiy via various websites. They ask you to commit credit card details in exchange for their addresses and phone numbers. What they are actually doing is getting you to join websites that take you round in circles and cost you money. They then re-bill you if you don't cancel your repeat billing mandate. If you are looking for a genuinely interested girl on this website its a bit like seeing a respectable girl sitting in a room full of hookers. Get the picture?

I must get more gullible as I get older! I believe the AM site is 99% a scam. Sure I bet one or two people have had the odd success but here is my experience. I started surfing and it looked interesting so I bought some very expensive 'credits'. £39 for 100 credits here in the UK. I sent a few carefully worded and polite messages because I know many women get bombarded with crude and semi-literate messages. I noticed the credits were disappearing fast and when I looked at my profile settings the default is to send messages as 'Priority' at double the credits for a normal message i.e. 10 credits instead of 5, that works out at almost 40p per message! The advantage of 'Priority' messages? You get an e-mail to tell you it has been received - big deal. I sent a total of 10 messages over a few days with no replies at all. The messages were all sent to women who were looking for someone of my age group and within 20 miles of me as well. This morning, out of credits, I logged in and was invited to chat by someone unknown. I also searched and found numerous interesting people showing as online. Against my better judgement I bought some more credits but, funny old thing, the £39 option was not there with a minimum purchase now of £59 for 200 credits. It took less than a minute to purchase the credits and suddenly ALL the people previously showing online now showed offline. The chat request had also disappeared. I searched for someone to chat to. I found ONE person available within 100 miles so I hit the chat button and had to pay 30 credits for 30 minutes chat! I reluctantly paid the credits and the person showing available for chat did not even acknowledge my friendly 'Hello'! WIth no one else to chat too there went 30 credits down the swannee! I e-mailed AM and told them I thought that was a swindle and they promptly refunded the 30 credits but what a weird system - designed to drain away credits at a high rate. I have messaged another 7 members with thoughtful and polite messages and, you guessed, no response at all. Personally I am annoyed not so much for initially parting with good money but being suckered into parting with more. Interestingly I found a website called ashleymadisonsucks.com and made a post about my experience so far but it has yet to appear. Most of the sites like the one above seem to have a critical post and then several people jumping in and saying how great AM is and how successful they have been! The cynic in me says they are run by AM or people associated with AM. Suspicions heightened when you find the site owners are hidden behind registrant companies. I think AM is a crock and would advise anybody to think carefully before parting with good money for an expensive and probably fruitless membership.

Do not join this website because there as so many fake profiles.
I've never seen a site where most of the women are between 5'4" & 5'10" weighing between 130lbs-150lbs. You also have to buy at least 100 credits for $49.99. For each new message it cost $2.50. Some profiles states please do not send winks only emails...hmmmm could this be a fake. Why would you waste you money on a woman who might not be interested in you. I've received many emails from woman but there all collect....meaning I have to pay $2.50 each to read them. I opened and replied to two of them with no response. There are some real profile on the site though, just look for the average to ugly women.

STAY AWAY FROM ASHLEY MADISON.....THERE ARE TOO MANY FAKE PROFILES.

AGREE 99%

I think there are some real profiles, and some people hook up. But I also think they probably have fake profiles. And they might even be actively using the fake profiles to wink or send collect emails, to induce people to switch from a free subscription to a paid one just to respond.

The real thing to watch out for is how they don't tell you that they automatically re-purchase credits when you run out. I never agreed to that or opted into that, so that's fraud!

Some background... I'm happily married to an awesome wife and have a beautiful daughter. I have no interest in having an affair and messing that up. I don't like the idea behind AM, but not everyone is in my situation. To each their own. I don't judge what I don't know and that is certainly not the intent of my post. I just wanted to be clear about my biases as you read this. That said, sometime ago, I decided it would be kind of fun to see if I could determine how much of this site was legitimate and how much was a scam. Maybe I thought I'd blog about it someday, maybe it was morbid curiosity, maybe I was curious about the people that wanted to cheat... I really don't know. It doesn't really matter. What does matter is I can corroborate what most people are saying here and then some. Just to eliminate any doubts in this thread, AM absolutely uses and encourages fake profiles. They openly (well, somewhat openly) admit to it. According to their FAQs, they call it "market research" and admit that there is no way to tell the difference between a research (i.e. fake) account and a real one. You have to manually opt out, as it is on by default. Otherwise, you give them permission to contact you using collect messages which you have to pay to open, and then pay additional credits to send a response. Read that again... AM acknowledges that some of their profiles are fake and yet you still have to pay money to read the admittedly fake messages. It's OK though because it is market research! Now why in the world would anyone ever want to opt in to that?! The answer, of course, is that they wouldn't, but I suspect that whole scenario exists to protect them in the event someone actually wanted to sue them for using fake profiles to burn credits. And most people aren't going to read the FAQs. I just happened to do so because I was intent on learning as much about them as I could. BTW, I'm still curious how the message, "do you wanna chat?" and literally nothing else, is market research. I'd love to see the published results of said research, assuming it is more in-depth than "99% of men will respond to an unsolicited message sent by a hot chick". Surely that result was figured out some time ago. And it gets better... these "market research" profiles are still visible in searches even after opting out. So, you can still potentially waste credits on emails to them. And by potentially, I mean it's 100% certain you will... they are everywhere. To be fair, if you can catch them by providing proof that the profile pic is a fake or other such methods, they will usually refund the credits. That is about the only positive thing I have to say about the site. They don't, however, usually remove the profiles. I spent a little money to be a full account and I've spent a few months playing detective... I treat it as a kind of game. I've found out that most of the profiles within 500 miles of my location, in my age group, are either fake or escorts. In my anecdotal and non-scientific opinion, just about every picture with a face (singles excluded) is 100% fake. There do seem to be a lot of "big women" that are real, some are actually very nice. I don't think this is what a majority of men are looking for. I also spent time looking at Twitter, other forums, blogs, etc... and in my opinion, AM has a really aggressive social marketing strategy going on which creates fake posters, commenters, and twitter accounts. I didn't look at Facebook because, well, that would get weird and personal, but I suspect much of the same there. My question is, if the site was so popular and people were rushing out in droves to have an affair, why would all of this be necessary? So, to all the supposedly happy AM members that have posted earlier on this thread or in other threads, please include your AM profile name and I'll gladly look you up. I have no doubt that most, if not all, of these "happy customers" are employees/social marketing consultants, but I'd be happy to come back and admit I'm wrong. Maybe it is a coincidence that your experiences sound so similar to the marketing promises that AM makes. More likely, I'll end up posting as to why you are a shill. I personally think these practices are intentionally deceptive and go way beyond fair advertising. So to recap... -- They admit to using fake accounts for market research, which will still cost you real money and you get no clear benefit. -- They are aggressively marketing AM through fake accounts in all sorts of social media. -- They automatically opt you in to recurring charges when your credits expire, and don't make it clear where to opt out. -- Even though they bill you anonymously, they will un-anonymously provide your information to your bank, and most amazingly, mail(!) you correspondence if you dispute charges. I'm guessing that would suck. There are other things I've observed that I could mention, but I've rambled long enough. Maybe someday I'll post an article about it, or more likely, I'll get bored and move on to other things. And like others have said, I don't doubt that there are some genuine matches made on the site by accident, specifically in major metropolitan areas, maybe in other countries. Maybe the site was originally started with ... um, "pure" intentions. But if you think for a second that this service (or pretty much any other similar site, for that matter) is now anything other than a thinly-veiled money taking site, you are crazy.

I am on the site, I am a female.

I didn't know men were being charged to speak with me.

I am single, but I prefer dating older men (24 here) and for some reason married works better

I get 300 messages a week. I put anyone who doesn't have photos or access to private photos on the back burner. They are read only after all the pic messages. I have 200 this week unread, some are set to expire before I even open them (because I get 300 a week, I won't read all the 3wk time frame messages are available) Then I only respond to the nonpic guys if
1. Their profile impresses me in some way
2. Their email impresses me in some way
3. I get to their email before it expires


If you say "hey" and have no pics or info, I delete, I have too many people to get to, I can't bother with someone who isn't trying. It's like a job, you don't get a call back if you don't fill out the application.

I am looking for a sugar daddy at some point, and if they are offering that they may impress me more, they are serious, and our fun will be easier because they have the ability to take trips and get hotel rooms but only if I like them, I don't lie to men to get $ or gifts, or require $ or gifts, there are escort sites if a woman needs that.


The guys I don't respond to probably assume I am a bot

Read PROFILES. If you aren't getting responses you may have said something stupid I received two emails on AM today that said hey are you available to drive to Indy I'll make the sex worth your while. and Hey let's meet up in Jeffersonville for coffee and lunch

My profile says "I can not stress this enough, I will only meet men who travel to me, I don't have the ability or desire to spend $ on a trip to meet someone outside my town, only message me if you
1. are OK with this
and
2. have the ability and desire to meet me here

One was VERY ATTRACTIVE but he didn't bother to read my SHORT to the point profile
Delete


Some women are real, but if you're not applying yourself you won't get anywhere in this site (as a man)

forget it

Same woman from above

Twice today my profile was blanked out

I had to rewrite it, trying to think of all the carefully constructed "what's ok what's not ok" lines

What type of guy I'm looking for, where I meet, line after line Gone. It doesn't sound as good now and I don't remember what I'm missing

I didn't save copy of it to the computer, I should have but that would be risky

My profile is blank AGAIN

Fark Ashley Madison

I am a female that has been on Ashley Madison for several years. I started when I was still married and thinking about a divorce. I met 2 men that I had sex with and continued with one of them for a few months. After my divorce, I stopped to do some "real" dating, only to find that married men where more interested and attentive to me that the single or divorced ones. So I joined again last year and have met several great guys that are friends as well as lovers. I am sane, clean, discreet, and always safe when choosing to meet a man from a dating site. There are "REAL" women on this site.....and I am proof of it!

Can't add any more, just reinforce what others have said. Some profiles obviously fake, recurrent billing, hidden conditions. All a complete waste of time & money. After 60 approaches I got replies from just two, and they simply stopped writing. Never any hope of a meeting. Compare with "plenty of fish", which is FREE. 20 approaches, seven replies within 24 hours, three of them within minutes. It's presented as a singles site but they have plenty of married there too, far more than AM, and most of them, maybe all, are genuine. Contacting people costs nothing. Steer clear of AM (and IE) both simply designed to part you from your cash.

I am an actual Ashley Madison member and I can say that it is not a scam in my opinion it is the best married dating website on the Internet The post that you've read from the the skeptics are completely untrue I have met a number of women on the site and they were actual real women. The sceptics are usually geeky men that can't meet a women if they paid her. Ashley Madison or as an actual member calls it "AM" is a very safe and trusted site where discretion is the key. The only drawback is it's a bit expensive but other than that it's great over 14 million members I say 60% men and 40% women. The women are your average bored housewives looking for companionship that they are missing in their current relationship. Their are plenty of women to go around both married and single so if you are a married man that is bored with your current situation then you should at least check it out for yourself.

Having read a few member reviews I was very skeptical as what my success would be. However curious by nature i could not resist !! knowing there may be many trolls working for AM with false profiles there must also be plenty of real women out there, i was relatively confident that i could navigate through the BS Not wanting to waste to much money i opted for the minimum package $50... I spent some time putting together a detailed, clever and humorous profile including a dozen pictures which would clearly show my physical attributes, tall and muscular. I felt this would be important if i was to have any success and i soon found out it was, one woman that i ended up chatting with told me she had received over 200 messages from guys !!!! Basically you need to stand out just to get your profile looked at and that is half the problem, women are getting swamped. Having just 20 messages i could send i decided to scan my area NYC 25-40 years of age and added all to my favorites and sent a wink which is free. Deciding i would only use my credits if someone responded. Ten days later of the 200 women i contacted only 37 had bothered to review my profile, this was disappointing as i was confident of success if i could get my profile looked at. However of that 37 14 of them either contacted me via collect message, wink or by adding me to favorites this is a good ratio. I decided to initiate contact or view the collect messages from 10 of that 14 all of which cost credits althought aftyer initial contact all further correspondence is free, stay away from IM way to expensive if chick really wants to message you suggest AOL IM, Skype, Google chat etc FREE, this has worked for me All 10 responded, I have had a real conversation with 5 of the 10... I have had one invite to adulterous affair with a 31 year old. Another conversation with a very hot freaky chick who wanted me to play the submissive, she was into S&M and i played along for a while but was clear to me after a few chats that i had no desire to be gagged, hog tied and whipped, so we ended that chat !!!!! I currently have 15 credits left and chatting with 4 ladies.. I have saved the best til last Lisa... I am yet to get my happy ending but i am definitely feeling Lisa we have been in contact via AOL AIM daily, email exchanging pictures, we are Skyping today and if all goes well we plan to meet up soon, she is a smoking hot 30 year Latina 5'8 105lbs Smile i will be very happy if this pans out !! I was contacted by a couple of smoking hot girls in their 20's from California Collect Messages of course, I decided these were trolls!! why bother to contact me when im in NYC so did not waste my credits responding. Also when choosing who to contact i found member feedback to be a useful tool. Bottom line stay away from instant messages, use your credits wisely, take time for detailed profile and pictures as it is hard enough to get your profile reviewed as it is so you want to make a good first impression. Remember any woman who is remotely hot is getting upwards of 200 hits. Bottom line i think i have done very well with 15 credits left having spent just 50 bucks.. So long as you are not a lewd, obese mutant i think you will do OK if you take your time and spend your credits wisely, yes its an adult dating site but keep initial contact polite and clean if your lucky enough to get a conversation going you dont want to *censored* it up by being rude and or lewd, plenty of time for dirty talk down the line. If i reload my credits ill probably go for the $250 package however im currently pursuing 3-4 interesting leads with the adorable Lisa being no. 1... Wish me luck she is bloody smoking !!!!!!!

In addition to the above ^^^^^^ When deciding whether to send a message using your credits If somone has sent you a collect message, wink or added you to favorites make sure they have viewed your profile first if they have not 99% guaranteed its a troll, if they have not viewed your profile its a guarantee they are not for real. Also look at the member feedback this is a good tool to decide if they are for real also if some chick is sending you gifts before having had any conversation id say that a pretty good give away that its a fake as gifts are expensive and unlikely some hot chick is wasting 20-50 credits on someone they don't know !!!! Seriously.... Also if reading a members profile is a good way to detwrmine if for real or not, just a bunch of checked boxes is a good sign. If a woman is serious then she will have taken the time to add some specifics as to what she is and is not looking for EXAMPLE from actual member profile I am not into endless messages/emails.I also understand that this is an adult website, however, do not immediately talk to me about sex. I will need to get to know you and trust you first. Also, if you cant be flexible with your time,.this wouldn't work. I can be available during the day sometimes, but mostly on Friday and Saturday nights. Please, respect my privacy. I will respect yours. Also, not looking to change my current situation This is clearly a real member who is good to go "just impress her" she also had good member feedback which is a plus Any way as is said in my review above be smart about your search use the free tools and i think you will have success !! I will add that i live in a big city NYC and that is a big plus as have a lot of members to filter through, Number 1 priority is your profile as these gitls are getting north of 200 messages so you need to stand out and i wouldn't give up if a chick hasnt responded to a wink as they are getting so many messages you are just gong to get overlooked on many cases just hit them up again in a week with another wink or add to your favorites

AM is not a scam by a long shot. Sure, some profiles are definitely robots, and the people who want to chat with you the minute you sign up are not to be trusted. But if you take the time and think the whole thing through, you will learn to separate the wheat from the chaff and will end up having a great time. In my case, I travel a lot because of work and have looked for women in the cities I visit most often. So far, I've gone out and exchanged fluids with three of these ladies, out of 50 I've contacted. True, there have been a fair number who didn't like my pictures or my living abroad, and those contacts came to nothing, but what did you expect? To me, the key is to look at the profiles critically and to find your niche. This is a lot like marketing -- you won't be everybody's cup of tea, but you must have some USPs. What are they and what kind of women go for them? If you crack this problem, then AM will be a good investment. Good luck.

I am almost certain AM has set up bogus accounts with the pictures of attractive women. There was one woman in particular that I was going to either meet or prove to myself she was a fiction. When I set my profiles, I was VERY careful to match myself to "her." I sent several extremely tasteful, carefully worded messages. The only reply I got was confirmation that my message was received. And then I started noticing something else. EVERYTIME I logged on, she was online as well. Midnight, 4:00 am. You name it. My advice-- ask your wife to play dress up or go see a marriage counselor. AM was set up to take your $$$$$$.

So what would someone say to this....You send a wink, they read your profile several days later. A day or two after that, they send you a "collect" message" with a key to 2 pictures. You send an email, get an email response back. We've swapped "regular" emails, I sent 1, she responded, I replied then nothing. A "bot" or real? I suspect "bot" at this point because the emails were all very vague, could have been intended for anyone. They were clever, because they had parts of my screen name in them, but never answered direct questions about location, etc. when the profile said this woman lived in the next town over from me. Thoughts? I've read alot of these posts on this thread and I would say it is running 50% "most are fake" and 50% "most are real". Am I being too kind? Does a "collect" message always indicate someone is not "real"?

Id say about 50 50 are real but its not that hard to weed out the fake ones !!!! A collect message definitely does not mean fake, if its unsolicited the yes most likely but if you got in response to a wink message or adding womone as admirer then not necessarily. I always check to make sure that person has viewed my profile if not DELETE if she has non private pictures with face probably bogus. If i do respond ill send a detailed message and ill always suggest that we continue to converse via AIM, Google chat, email or some other non AM medium, if they are not up for that then you are probably wasting your time. I have had success in both erotic cyber chat and physically hooking up !!! Good luck

Same guy here ^^^^ I would add.... I think your conversation was legit if it had not been then fake profile would have tried to get you to spend credits by using AM chat.... From conversations ive had these women are getting 200-300 messages at a time. So i would say the vague responses were probably because she was having multiple conversations at the same time and maybe she decided to pursue someone else. Bottom line i think you had a live one on the hook but she got away !!!!!

I'm not so sure it was legit. I think it's 80/20 on that site that are bots/website employees/"marketing reps". The emails were too vague, like I said, intended for anyone. Blank. Vanilla. My no geek, my ad is fairly witty and humorous.I'm tall and muscular, my picture shows my nice white smile. To me, this indicates possible drama in "her" life. No need for that, no thanks. I haven't been on that site for more than a month, and so far I would say AM is a complete waste of time. Save your money, fellers.

Well like i said ive had plenty of success in the 5 weeks ive been a member and I have another 2 preliminary meetings next week planned, one with a chick in Tribeca another in Queens both very respectable looking... I even manged to get 10 credits refunded to me when i reported one profile as a scam artist. it was classic, chick exchanged email addresses and claimed to from Denver sent me lovely pictures etc. You could tell from the way she was talking that she or more likely a he was eastern european so i decided to play along just waiting for the hook. After about 5 or 6 email exchanges this person says she desperately wants to come and stay with me !!! "cant wait i say" lol and then of course there is the request for $500 to be sent via Western Union for her ticket LMFAO... Well i continue to play along having the moron send me some naked pictures.. Eventually after about 100 email exchange YES i was bored, i told her that i sent money. After much searching at the WU office she calls me out !!! Seriously the jokers IP address tracked to Sunnyvale in California some 2k miles from Denver .. Anyway point is AM removed the profile and refunded my credits Wink

Be very careful how you spend your credits, there definitely are lots of fake profiles, old dormant profiles and scammers...

After having joined wait a week and avoid all messages u rcv in that first week....
Avoid anyone who hasnt been on line for 7+ days may well be somone who just joined out of curiosity never to come back to site
Avoid anyone who hasnt bothered to take the time to fill out a written profile if someone is interested they are going to have put some written information in their profiles about themeslves
Never chat on AM instant Messenger total waste of time and anyone asking u to do so prob AM employee

I have started each conversation with either free winks or adding people to favorites, check to see who is viewing your profile. Not a single chick has actually sent a paid message to me so ur going to have to weed your way through which collect messages to accept and which return winks to reply to. Of the paid messages ive sent ive at least had a conversation with about 50% be polite and courteous but also get to the point as its most likely the woman is not just talking to you, they are recieving 2-300 messages at a time. Try and get her to swap email addresses, if you get that far you are really in good shape and its now down to you to seal the deal

OK..SO I have been an AM member for almost 2 years off and on. I have purchased the minimum package of credits maybe 2-3 times. First off there are many many fake profiles. You will need the patience to sift and sort through the fake ones. Examples of the fakeness: IF you in your 40s 50s and your getting messages from girls in their 20s with super hot profile pics chances are they are fake. I have seen at times on the site when all the long time profiles in your local area are all online at the exact same time as if a switch was turned on. Another give away is when your credits run low you will notice a sharp increase in winks and collect messages to run you dry to try to get you to buy more credits. Lastly there have been many times where you begin messaging a person and the profile disappears the next day or 2 after you spent the credits.

Now with that being said here has been my experience. First I created a profile with a headless shot for my profile pic..I'm in early 40s in great shape. I personalized my profile and just didn't check boxes. I did not use the shotgun method and was selective in choosing who I would message and I had a preference for other attached woman (yes many single women-mostly fake looking for sugar daddy) near my age range..I would make exceptions here in there to broaden my target range. Many of my messages went unanswered. Many I received replies and exchanged just a few courtesy emails. You find out early and exchange private key pics to ensure the attraction is there or why bother messaging for any amount of time. So there were times when the physical attraction just wasn't there. The one sure way to know if someone is real is after a few AM messages offer your personal (fake account) email. If things look promising and they disappear at this point then you know the profile was fake..do that early and you will weed them out. If they like the first few AM messages and like your pics they will email your personal email account and you take it from there. Do not waste credits chatting in AM. If they like you they will chat off line in other applications. Cost too much to chat and you don't even know if ther are real.

With all that taken into account I have had personal email exchanges with about a dozen women. I have met 4. 2 of which (27 and 37) were in bad relationships and just couldn't make the time to be available in person often enough to have any type of relationship. Another (she lied about her age said 40 ended up being 47) that ended up with brief sexual encounter that ended abruptly by her choosing out of the blue . And finally I met the perfect match. Someone that just clicked on every level. Same interests, great conversationalists, beautiful, great sexually and very respectful of our situations. In her late thirties and we have flexible enough schedules to make things work. Its been going on for several months and and we are both very happy. Deleted AM profile and everything as we found what we were looking for. AM is by far the best site. Just in the sheer numbers your are going to get more real women. You just have to be patient and look for the right things.

Just when I almost counted AM out I found the prefect match so we both now thank AM for what we have!!!! Hope this was helpful.

Doesn't sound good..probably fake especially if messages are short. I would send message explaining how you have had experiences with fake profiles and would prefer to email outside of AM to get to know her better and offer her your personal email (hopefully you have a separate dummy account for these purposes). She will probably disappear and then you will definitively know she is fake. If not she will email you and all is good. Either way you won't be wondering.

Ashley Madison is a total rip off! The worst decision you can make is this particular site. The model for how their site works is extremely flawed! The Chat setup means you lose credits, even when you have no-one to communicate with. As mentioned by others there are a large number of fake profiles and opening a chat session with one of these, means you're losing credits for nothing. Messages that you have sent get deleted so you no longer have them for future reference and if you get a 0 credit balance, the site is virtually useless (Ashley Madison does nothing to communicate this fact). Lift your game. Hopefully other potential suckers will read this and give you a wide berth. And on top of the above, your staff don't give a damn.

Seems like a scam. I plan on running down my credits and then saying Adios. I'm a guy and I'm no troll, but no Sugar Daddy either. I know what a gym membership looks like and use it 3-4 times a week. I have a job and my smile doesn't look like a picket fence. I run 5ks. I've sent over 3 dozen emails in the last month and got 3 "real" responses; one was to say " no thanks" (hey..at least she responded), another was kind enough to keep reading my emails and profile until she blocked me and the last has an inoperable brain tumor. What is that last woman doing on a website like that looking for anything anyway? Assuming that is true of course, which it may not be. Just maybe a polite way of saying "no thanks"?

Yes, I had my fair share of "bots" who first hit me up when I signed on. I learned quick what they were!

So as a test, I came up with a "fake" female profile using a public domain picture of a woman. Here are my results;

Within 5 minutes of putting the ad up, I had 5 members view my profile, one IM request, 2 emails and 1 wink. Seriously? I hadn't even finished putting up the profile!

After 2 hours, had 21 emails and 10 winks and 6 admirers. Got all sorts of pics, as you could imagine. Come on guys, really? That quick?

After almost 2 full weeks of not signing on; 388 emails. 281 winks. 348 Views. Come on! All that for just a picture of a woman smiling! What of the ones who are half naked or who are very open and upfront about what kind of sexual encounter they want? Only the very specific male(or female) gets thru. Hey...survival of the fittest, right?

The end result? The ratio of men to women must be 100:1. You have to have a "kink" or can scratch a very particular itch to get thru. Or here is an idea, what if these posts are by women who "want" their husbands/boyfriends/significant others to see these profiles? In other words, it is possible some of these "real" women have no interest at all in meeting any of the men who email them, or they email back in conversation? Food for thought? "See, honey...look what I can do?" Women are strange birds...

I've been off and on AM for about two years. Plenty of bs on there but if you're patient and can be a little witty...you'll meet someone. I've been contacted by many real women. None of them had a public profile photo. One was a really sexy soccer mom. We met for drinks on a random Tuesday afternoon and ended messing around in her minivan in the parking lot. She just wanted to be wanted. A few things I've learned:

Ashley Madison is great for smart and good looking guys. Sure there are fake profiles, but also there are girls on there that just are feeling things out. If you are good looking, patient and smart you can have lots of success. I am a married guy and have had sex with 9 different women on AM. I am still conversing with 5 of them and have had sex with those 5 multiple times. I have done things with those women that I can't believe. I show them a really good time, satisfy them sexually in a way their husbands can't, and treat them with respect. The site is almost too good to be true. I love it!

It's a total scam, for both male and females interested in a NSA, discrete affair.

You just spend money, and more money. I can tell you I have.

All that happens is, you get contacted by women that don't pay on their side and you accept their inbound email and conveniently get charged for it.

Then, other entice you to chat with them, again, spend a bunch of money for the chat feature only to get zero, zilch, nothing, nada.

Wast of time and money, don't do it. Search elsewhere. Trust me, at this point, even the supermarket has better candidates.

I'm a fairly new single woman on AM; it's OK but a little dreary

I stumbled on AM by accident. Frankly, I was just horny and wanted sex without any strings attached. Sounded ideal. If I really did just want sex, NSA, I'd be able to do that all day long with guys from this site.

But I didn't find many guys I was attracted to. Most of the guys were crude, with crude names (with names including "69" or "f8cker"or similar words) and unflattering pictures. If they did write their interests, their grammar was horrible and they didn't hide their lechery. So guys, tidy yourselves up in your writing and photos.

I did meet a few guys who I had drinks with. These were "nice guys" who knew how to write, knew how to talk with me.They paid for my drink. We agreed to meet for sex. But--the sex wasn't great. And the kissing was even worse.

Now, I have two more prospects and I am hopeful that both the kissing and the sex will be awesome. If it's as bad as the previous attempts, I will give up on AM forever.

Guys, you need to know that WOMEN CANNOT BUY CREDITS TO SEND MESSAGES. We MUST send our messages collect. Women's memberships are always free, NEVER paid. That's why our messages come to you collect, so please don't tell us "no collect messages." We can't do anything about it.

Please, don't ask for my key until we've EXCHANGED messages at least a few times. I am picky about who I send my key to, for obvious reasons.

AM is NOT a scam. But it has a lot of loser guys on it, unfortunately.

It is. Ok, not a scam per say, but very close... very “misleading”.
Initially, quite long time ago, in the beginning, online dating was much more real, and much less sites, etc… All gone…
Now, generally, like all the rest of on-line dating, it is just became money generating machine selling the dream to man… Just count how many site you know?

Let’s be honest, we read all of those reviews, and yet… we go and create profiles there, and pay Wink… Why? Because still there is a hope that you actually get lucky and eventually will come across that minority of real profiles, which do exist… but very few.

Especially after reading the "happy ending" Wink stories, like here… wait a year, pay for a year and finally you MAY get lucky… Did you noticed, that a few years back happy stories were a bit different? They were much more direct denial of “fakeness”, and about quick and easy success… not anymore, as it became obvious that is not a case Wink

Yes, I have used it as well. Absolute majority are “rubbish”. There were may be just a couple of genuine girls/messages , easily distinguished by their response. Not worth it.
If you can afford to spend that much time on-line, do the same in real life, and your success rate will be better. At least you will spend the same year actually talking to the girls or trying Wink..

There are couple of other sites, which are slightly better. I still trying to use, but in very limted form, as time spent there does not tranlates into better scores. More like a lottery, Do not ask which, I will not answer, because if I do, my response will look like another “fake” or “ad” of other sites, plus it depends on where you are anyway...

My experience is that the site itself runs scams on its own paying customers. Having subscribed using the intro offer, I made my profile and uploaded my pix and got to work. As a bit of a web dating alumnus I am familiar with various site scams, and the Ashley Madison subscription model not only makes it easy for the site itself to scam its own paying customers, but it makes it painfully obvious that it is, in fact, the site itself doing it and not some outside influence.

By using a credits-for-mail model there's nobody else who can benefit from wasting your credits, than the site itself. At least with pay-per-month sites where the features are then open to use, outsiders can lure you to offsite email addresses and pay sites. With Ashley Madison it's blatant that forcing you to spend credits simply to see mails, since kiting you in this manner can do nothing but enrich them.

And this is exactly what they do. You will receive unsolicited 'collect' mails from profiles which appear to be women daters [I'm a man] which cost you to open. Only then can you see that it's a single, non-personal spam line of text of less than say, 10 words, asking if you want to chat [sent when you are obviously not online, as site shows if you are] or asking how your search is going or any other number of banal quick questions that were obviously not directed to you specifically. If you then reply it costs another 5 credits, even though the site assures you that replies are free if you haven't initiated contact yourself. many of these fake ambassador profiles will even have spurious 'user feedback' readings beneath them. Additional credits can be wasted asking them to show their 'private showcase' pix [most fakes have this indicator].

All in all, avoid it like the plague; I can see luring non-paying tryout profiles into getting a subscription but then scamming people who have already paid is ever lower scum-business than that.

I have absolute rock solid proof that AM is complete load of BS. After setting up my account, and paying the big sum of money to get going, I had the no response treatment .... I tried freaking everything i could think of, but not one single response. Not even a "Hi thanks for the mail" or "Sorry but I am busy with someone else" I mean. NOTHING. So to prove it was a scam and only working with facts, I set up a fake account, as a female so that I could be notified of new male memebers joining the site. For 2 months every day I received mail from both my accounts. I can absolutely confirm that the ratio is more than 50 to 1 in RSA. My bet is that at least 1 in 50 guys suspect this is a scam and hence they create a fake profile to prove it leaving my maths sound.

You have more luck getting lucky, at a lesbian convention than AM. If you did meet someone through this "service" consider yourself lucky. Put your money back in your pocket go into the real world and work the crowd you have a 99% better chance at a hit.

AM is the PERFECT SCAM. I won't rehash all the stuff about fake profiles and hidden charges thats already been said. But AM is the perfect scam because they can steal your money- and you can't do a thing about it. People have a lot to lose if they are connected to this site, so no one will make a ruckus and draw attention to themselves. AM knows this and banks on it.

The other culprit that enables the AM scam is the media. While many news programs and websites try to attack AM by decrying it as vulgar and devoid of morals- they are actually helping AM. When people see AM talked about on the news, they think its a real site and are tempted into using it. All the hollering about AM encouraging affairs distracts people away from the real crime- that AM is defrauding people. Its the same trick magicians use- hold something flashy with your left hand so they audience doesnt see what you're doing with your right hand.

AM is fake! DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR MONEY.

I've been on Ash/Mad for about three weeks now. I'm male. Men, you can do a simple test to see how many women to men are on the system in your area and age group. You need to set up both a male and female account. (I think it is unethical to allow the female account to be visible because dozens of men will spend credits trying to contact you -- that could quickly mount up to hundreds of dollars wasted.)

Once you have these accounts do an advanced search in both the female account and the male account for your area and age group. I recommend searching for people active in the last seven days.

I my large mid western town I found that males outnumbered females anywhere from 10 to 15 to 1. So you can see that males have a low probability of hooking up. You have to hope the woman finds any of you acceptable and better than the other 14 (actually she'll have dozens or hundreds.)

Another factor is what I call robot accounts. These are probably Ash/Mad accounts. They usually have full face pictures (odd for attached women) and are either on line a lot, or were on line either 4 or 12 hours ago. They seem to cycle through those specific times. My guess is that they make up 10-20 percent of the "hits" I get in my area and age group. I'm sure that density varies over location and age group.

So far I've contacted 55 women. Approximately 30 percent then viewed my profile. That's a good indication that they were real people. Three asked for photo access and one gave me her email. None have granted me photo access.

I don't have a "public" photo which I am sure depresses results, all though I am not a particularly handsome man, so that might be a wash.

So those are my results so far. I might expriment with a public photo of some sort. But being married, that seems awful risky.

There are definitely fake profiles on AM (and is unbelievably cheeky of these profiles to persist three years later) but also real women! I've had no less than five great hookups since joining three years ago, two of whom I still see on a regular basis.

The trick to overcome the 15:1 guy:girl ratio without wasting all your credits is to find a way to get interested women to notice and come to you. Create a compelling original profile and then try to draw the ladies out with winks and keys to your photo portfolios. The serious ladies will self-select., saving you tons and tons of time and money. Trust me.

I'm in Sydney and immediately started receiving messages when I signed up even before I had any pix. I did an advance search for girls of Asian background and over the next few weeks I got several messages from members of Asian background. Funny that .... I bought some credits to read the messages. The messages wrote "Do you give chat?, "I'm online", "I'm here". Needless to say I didn't get a reply when I responded. Apparently these members are market researches and you can tick a box so that they donlt send you messages. Well I did but every couple of weeks it would revert back to unticked and I'd get more of the fake messages. Anything is good to suck up your credits. Enough said account closed!

Ashley Madison clearly has fake profiles. One way to tell is to hotlist the "girls" who immediately send you collect messages and check out your hotlist when you logon. You will notice these "girls" are always online. Always. No real person is ever always online. Other major pifalls to know about with the AM scam are: priority mail (5 credits) is checked off by default in the profile options, as is "Check this to keep topping up your credits when you run out".

There is a criminal case against this man and he is still on there! I feel like I am the one who is being punished--not this man who I feel is dangerous.

Here's the real scoop on AM.

OK, so I think guys are going to be disappointed with AM. AM markets the "sizzle, not the bacon" and guys get excited expecting the impossible--a site full of hot horny women, waiting to cheat with you! Yes, there is definitely some sleazy stuff going on, but here's the real explanation why it's so hard to find satisfaction on this site.

1. AM has affiliate programs that allow third parties to contact you in the guise of a member.

2. AM uses bots to collect "marketing" information. This also serves to make it look like there's more female activity than there really is.

3. Most of the profiles are not active. If a non-member woman wants to see what's going in at AM, she has to create a temporary profile. She just takes a look, perhaps browses for a few hours, then moves on with her life. But her profile remains in AM for a long time. Again, this gives the impression that there are more women than there really are.

4. Many prostitutes, sugar-baby wannabees hang out there hoping to catch some business.

5. Many men create a fake female profile so they can check out the competition or figure out how AM works.

6. The few legitimate women on the site are bombarded with emails, many of them offensive, so they only answer a few.

7. If a legitimate woman finds a good affair, she tends to stop checking her account, but the account remains there.

All these tend to make it appear that there is more female activity than there really is.

The bottom line is that this is not a good site to find a lover. There are just too few women on it. But if you're going to try, here are some tips: forget any profiles that have a full face on them (not legitimate), forget profiles that haven't been checked in 7+ days (not active), look for profiles with personal comments on them--the woman cares enough about this experience to reveal herself. (although many women put minimal information on their profile because they are intimidated about revealing themselves), if a woman messages you first (unlikely), then check her profile. A few (usually new) women sometimes do message first until they start getting hammered with emails, add extra comments to your profile and don't make it all about you, when messaging add some text worth reading, forget winks.

Finally, the few legitimate women on the site are *real people*, and most married women willing to cheat are going to be a little older. Most women are not fashion models or porn stars, so you're going to have to be willing to see beyond the superficial "hot" exterior. This is not an escort service.

I also feel like I was "swindled", but I feel like it has been a good learning experience and a fun little adventure. I've met a few nice (real) women on the site so far. Anyway, caveat emptor!

Good luck!

Ashley Madison absolutely positively 100% IS a scam site

Registered couple of weeks ago, started getting flirts, messages and profile views almost immediately. All of them were attempts to extort money from me (collect messages, chat sessions that won't open until I pay etc.)

Came across a female profile that was using a photo that I happened to have seen before. It was stolen from Flickr. I wrote to support to report it but they never responded, and the profile is still up.

So I got interested and started searching, and eventually located not two, not five, but TEN fake profiles that were using stolen photos. You know what was interesting about those profiles? They were always online, 24*7, and all ten of them have sent me "collect" messages the moment I clicked on them for the first time - but never again.

Of course I reported all ten of them as fakes using stolen photos, and of course there was no response from the site support to any of those reports.

How much more proof do you need?..

I have heard of more than one case of the so-called female being a male (probably an adolescent or simply a griefer) who is just messing around with someone for kicks. It's the Interwebs so it's full of trolls and griefers just because its there. An adolescent idiot is usually easy to figure out because they have no idea what they are talking about and sound like they got their sexuality out of a porn video. That said, if the person gives you good emails just think of it as a an online roleplaying game and either go with the fantasy or dump out early. Obviously you're not going to meetup with a troll so if that's what you want (rather than just cyber) you're SOL.

As for the above "wink" and "admirer" suggestion -- that has worked for me but it's a roll of the dice. There are some women there who are looking but with such a huge number of men to choose from, they are often going for the creme de la creme -- hot/wealthy/young guys who do nothing but work out all day. The only saving grace for a slightly above average man like me is that I can hold my own in a conversation and be very sexual when they want that. That seems to work once you've gotten past the polite hellos.

I posted earlier about by observations about what's going on with AM. Here's some more info and advice for you. This comes from my own research and from meeting over a dozen real women on AM (online and in person) and asking about their experiences. Any women readers who read this are invited to comment.

I've been lucky enough to chat and meet many women through AM (though none have been what I'm really looking for). The women are there, though in far fewer numbers than you'd believe based on the AM hype (and your own fantasies).

Most of the women I met are very nice, each with an interesting story about why they're there. Ironically, many are there because their boyfriends/husbands cheated on them earlier. Some are there because they are missing passion and intimacy, so not looking for multiple partners, more looking for a "special someone" (their own fantasy).

To get women to talk to you you need three things right off the top:

1. You should send a short but interesting personal message (forget winks, they ignore them). Say something positive on their profile or have a witty thing to say.

2. You should think hard and make a damn good profile. DO NOT list what you want and don't want in a woman, instead describe yourself in the bet possible way. Women read those profiles!

3. Get a couple of DECENT photos of yourself that show you as a quality, charming, handsome man. Smile! And my god, DO NOT show your anatomy!! Every woman I talked to says this is a turnoff, or at best, something to laugh about. If you're getting a woman who asks for photos of your private parts, you can bet it's some teenagers having a big laugh at your expense.

Those are the only three impressions you have to get them to contact you, so make them count. Remember that you are competing against many, many men. By my estimate the ratio is something like 10 or 20 men to 1 real woman. And many of the women are "just curious" and will not really follow up, so the real ratio for available women is probably lower. The game is stacked in the women's favor, so it is easy for them to overlook you. Too bad really, because the women may miss out on some quality people (sometimes it takes time to find a real Prince Charming). But that's how it is, unfortunately.

As soon as possible, get them to use regular email to continue the conversation so they don't have to log on to AM. First, many women can't use the AM website all the time for fear of getting discovered. Second, this way they are more likely to see your future emails, instead of it being buried among 100's of others on the AM site. Third, you don't want them seeing other guy's messages while they're looking at yours. You're in competition with many other men (including me), so get them off AM as fast as possible!

Keep in mind that (for the most part) we are talking about regular people here, not women from porn fantasies. Remember, unless she's looking for a sugar daddy or money, she's taking a huge risk by being on this site. So she needs to feel safe and comfortable with you. These are not party sex girls, most are ordinary women who have ventured our beyond the norm. Also remember that they have their own fantasy at it probably revolves around meeting a "Mr. Right" on the side who makes them feel wonderful. Will they actually take this all the way? Hard to say, fantasy is one thing, but fulfilling it is another. We are talking about real people, not porn fantasies.

Now there are a few outliers and interesting phenomena that you should be aware of. First, there are (very few) women who are indeed looking for multiple partners without expecting money. However, they are very strange people, so be warned! (One that I met truly scared me!) The second observation is this very interesting phenomenon: Because these women are bombarded by men seeking their attention, many start to adopt a "princess" mentality and begin to value themselves much higher than they normally would. They end up using superficial criteria to filter men out. I have met women that I would normally not spend effort trying to make time with, describe to me their silly criteria they used to reject guys. It's a shame because they could very easily be filtering out very good men. But when you've got 10 more lined up ready to meet you, this is what happens. Also, they become desensitized to the rejection process. So consequently, many can seem like "bitches" and what is supposed tone a fun meet up can seem like a job interview. Fortunately, I have not had any major negative experiences (your own frame of mind can help a lot here), but when they tell me about their other meet ups and how they turned away other guys (and how badly guys react, ranging from getting angry to begging for another chance), I can only shake my head.

Bottom line is this. Perhaps you can find someone to enjoy for some time on AM--there are real women there. But there are very few real women, and a LOT of noise. Make your best impression online and keep in mind who's really there (real ordinary women from real marriages). Love them for who they are, not for your sex fantasy. Do not take anything personally. Many women are passing up real gems (possibly you) because they have to deal with volume and they don't know how to handle that kind of attention. And many are fooling themselves, playing within their own fantasy (like shopping for clothes). Consider your money spent on AM as an adventure. A good night at the bar with my friends is going to cost me $80. If you can't afford $50 for a month of activity, how are you gong to afford an affair?

Good luck guys!

What you have to realize is that AM is free for Women. Everything they do is free, everything you do costs money. The ratio's of men to women are much worse than you think. I am a single guy living in a large city, and wanted to figure this site out. I set up a fake profile as a woman. Within 5 minutes I already had 10 messages, with guys telling me I sound great, that they really want to get to know me. I had not posted a pic, nor any information, no tag line, just checked some boxes. I added a tag line, and put a short joke in my want section, and the next day I had 100 emails, 100+ winks, guys are giving me gifts, and many did not uncheck the priority mail. So realize that any woman on here is getting a lot of attention and the guys are wasting a lot of money. I took a pic from the internet of a very plain women from a foreign website, and put it in the profile, now a week later I have 1000+ emails, winks, gifts. Its just unreal. The different approaches are interesting, but its too much. They are so many guys local wanting to cheat that I any woman on here has to be overwhelmed or ready to make her choice of what floats her boat. Not sure why a pretty girl would be on here, but for those that are not models, this website is gold if they are looking sex. AM also works completely different for the women. It is so much easier and simpler, faster, except for the photo, they took much longer to accept it, than they did for me as a guy.

If you get emails from not in your area, and they are young and beautiful, do not respond, these are paid hacks.

I'm back with more information about AM for you. Now I've met many women from AM, and had soem nice affairs with a few. So I believe that AM is legit, but it's really a minefield for guys. Here are some more tips and insights for you.

With perseverance, patience, and good writng skills, you can indeed get women to follow up with you (they really are there, just very few compared to guys). Use all the tips I provided in my last two posts. I found that it's good to focus on about 5-6 candidates at a time, so you can keep track of things. Maybe one will end up in a meetup or date. If they don't respond after the first message, wait a few days and try again. Some of these women get too many emails and yours may get lost. Above all, keep all your interactions positive!

Most of the women want to take their time on this, so you may have to do messaging (emails or chat) for several weeks to build up trust and an online relationship (use your own email/chat). That's OK, it gives you a chance to take things easy and relax a little. That's why you want to work on 5-6 candidates at a time and don't get all worked up on any one candidate. Keep the conversation witty, and intelligent. If there is a real conversation going, you can start to bring up a few "sexy" topics, such as "Mmmm, I was thinking about those sexy eyes of yours today." You get the idea, keep it light and playful. But never do this until you have gotten a real online discourse going.

A few women want to get down to business quickly and meet right away, but I found that they are also the ones who conduct the meetups like job interviews. It's OK, just don't go to those meetups with anything to lose. Enjoy it, smile, and be willing to walk away from it.

If they meet you after an extended online conversation (over a few weeks), then they are more likely to be ready to accept you. You have a better chance in that situation, since they have invested in you by then.

Some women shared some of the things that other men have said to them. I must say I am impressed with how good some of those Lotharios are with their words! The can really put together some sweet, romantic *censored*! Your best bet is to keep the conversations short and witty, but try to sound intelligent. Definitely use spell check before sending!

Now of the women I have met, I have found that only about 10% are "A" level (7-10), truly cute (the kind I would normally go after). The others are a mix between "B" (5-6) and "C" (less than 5) level, ho-hum or worse. Imagine the married women (35+) you see at the grocery store and you'll get the idea. How many of these women get you excited? Many lie about their weight and use old photos. Are they liars, to be scorned? I don't think of it that way. They are just as insecure about themselves as anyone (men do the same thing). So keep in mind that you are working hard (and getting emotionally vexed) by women that are really very ordinary!

An interesting problem is that after all that hard work, trying to get a woman to commit to following up with you, you are psychologically hooked to try to take this as far as possible! It's weird. You end up working so hard on women you normally wouldn't even try to go after in the real world. So AM is a great site for average women to feel like princesses.

Finally, I hope that no matter what happens, you treat all your women with respect. It's tempting to get pissed off and send a nasty message or be rude when meeting someone. Remember, these are ordinary ladies in an unusual situation, not hot vixen ball-breakers!

Good luck, gentlemen!

Ashley Madison is part legitimate but mostly a scam. Here is how you can confirm it.

1. Open an account and try to meet women. I did hook up with a few but they were mainly hookers. I wish I had a nickel for every girl I wrote that I was hoping to get to know. I received hardly any replies from my initiated emails to these ladies. Now I am not bad looking in the least, and had photos that I made available.

2. When you close your account or let it get to zer0, that is when you will mysteriously receive some emails from women. You will not be able to view or reply to the emails unless you renew you membership.

Don't just believe me. You will see that many have the same experience. Statistically this proves that many of the profiles are fake and you are just wasted your time, hope and money with these service.

Maybe you guys should adjust your approach and stop sending photos of your dick in the first message. Or if you're a guy that's clearly spent the last 5 years of his life eating pizza and watching Macgyver re-runs, head down the gym and lose a few kilos. A little perspective would be nice.

I joined up just over a week ago with the most basic package. The first couple of messages I had were obvious lures (they were in a different country); who cares, you don't pay to read them anyway, so it's a blank slate. 8 days later and I've had 4 dates with different women and scored with 2 of them, and these were attractive 7-8s/10, and they even knew about the other dates! They're also genuine people that if you treat them with respect and a little honesty, are happy to continue seeing you because they're tired of dealing with bull*$&# from losers who send "Ooooh, baby, I can make you feel so gooood", in their opening statement.

It's not that there are no girls on there, they've just been bombarded with so much *censored* that they all have finely tuned *censored* detectors and won't reply to the oblivious knuckle-dragger. And guess what, the site is there to make money, so why state "They just want to make money with fake scams! Huuur" this like it's a revelation.

Actually keep being pathetic, it leaves us with more choice.

This site is definitely a rip off. I firmly believe that all the 'women' who have approached me and all those that I have approached seem to have fake profiles and I suspect that they are not even women!

The replies are probably sent by employees of the site and not female members. You would be better setting fire to your money. At least you can do that without wasting lots of time!

Ashley Madison is great for smart and good looking guys. Sure there are fake profiles, but also there are girls on there that just are feeling things out. If you are good looking, patient and smart you can have lots of success. I am a married guy and have had sex with 9 different women on AM. I am still conversing with 5 of them and have had sex with those 5 multiple times. I have done things with those women that I can't believe. I show them a really good time, satisfy them sexually in a way their husbands can't, and treat them with respect. The site is almost too good to be true. I love it!



I've been on the site for 5 days, and I met a beautiful, sweet, sexy Latina woman in tight jeans last night for dinner and drinks. I'm very happy with the site!

Doesn't anybody read the Terms & Conditions of the contract it explicitly explains that the site is for entertainment & amusement and employees Ashley's Angels who are there to lead you along they also rebill you automatically so be careful but really it is a total fake so don't be an idiot waste your money and get your hopes up
MAYBE and i doubt it 1-2% of the womans ads might be true but likely anybody defending them is probably a shill. I spent days fantasizing and refining my profile and was surprised when I got Collect replys before they knew anything about me
The one positive thing is I got in shape to get ready for all the affairs I was about to have!
Fortunately as a skeptical NY'er I decided to read the contract - T&C before I spent any money.
They didn't get my money but they shattered all my dreams. Oh well had again but at least I warned you! Now back to working out - to relieve my frustration this time.

There may be real women on the site, but you are going to spend a small fortune finding them. Out of the shute they charges me ten points per message sent out (2 x 5), then 5 points each message you send back to someone if they do respond. If you buy the small package at $50, your are done the first ten minutes. Buy the Large package @ $250, and you could have fun for a couple of hours. I guess the whole purpose of this is to get screwed, so it works out pretty good in that respect!

This is obviously an employee.  The site is a complete scam, all the women write in the same broken english, the one with photos are all prepared in a obliviously similar way.I have no doubt that in some third world country (or China) men are paid *censored* wages to try to get AM subscribers to use up their credits.

A-M is like all other dating sites out there. Some profiles are real, while majority is fake. Some will rip you off, and a small number is looking for a real relationship. Here’s what you should do: trust your instincts. Converse with these fine ladies and if there is something fishy, then leave. That’s more effective!

AM is not a scam but it is a numbers game. Yes, I have come across a couple of scams. The upshot is the male / female ratio is high. initially, I did not receive any responses so I redid my profile and how i communicated with women in the initial message. I actually contacted many women again apologizing for my poor first emails and many responded back. There was a general consensus that they get so many messages that they can be very picky. If the initial message does not catch their attention, they simply delete and move on. (winks are almost always ignored). Since I changed my approach, i have been in contact with as many as 6 woman in a week (all of whom I have phone numbers and have met or am arranging to meet). I am older and the woman generally look for younger guys since they can so if you are ~50 and older, it is harder

Now of the women I have met, I have found that only about 10% are "A" level (7-10), truly cute (the kind I would normally go after). The others are a mix between "B" (5-6) and "C" (less than 5) level, ho-hum or worse. Imagine the married women (35+) you see at the grocery store and you'll get the idea. How many of these women get you excited? Many lie about their weight and use old photos. Are they liars, to be scorned? I don't think of it that way. They are just as insecure about themselves as anyone (men do the same thing). So keep in mind that you are working hard (and getting emotionally vexed) by women that are really very ordinary!



Any guy who has a rating system, must be one of those rated in the C category or lower themselves.

This place is a scam and sham. Touted mainly by 3rd party affiliates that rake in the money off anyone dumb enough to join. They don't care what their affiliates do or how many laws they break, and neither do the affiliates. I have contacted support so many times only to be told it isn't them sending the emails, then the newer ones state they are coming from 3rd party affiliates and guess what - customer service/support won't answer an email. Guess if this crap continues I will be contacting the FTC and FCC to report them.

If their company is as good as their customer support, you are probably computer talking to some big hairy guy in his shorts beating his meat while chatting to you representing himself as some sexy gal.

Go on their site and read what their affiliates get paid to slam people with spam, it's ridiculous.

LMAO, The Ashley Madison Scam Deepens Big Grin

I guess the cats out of the bag now. CBC News had reported the same the same story saying an ex employee is suing Ashley Madison because her job was to create Hundreds of fake profiles and had complained about wrist problems arising from the large amount of data she had to enter in the short time frame.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/ashley-madison-adultery-website-sued-by-former-employee-1.2421819

In her claim, Silva says she didn't question her assignment, and no one at the company suggested there was anything "unlawful or improper" about the alleged phoney profiles.

In fact, she was led to believe "that doing so was some sort of a normal business practice in the industry," it says.

Had she been aware of the “ethical and legal issues arising in relation to online fraud,” Silva would have turned down the work, she alleges in the document.



was some sort of a normal business practice in the industry
Im sure, anyone who has seen most dating and hook up sites have seen the cut and paste profiles. How can anyone deny the fact the the sites them self make the fake profiles.

Give it up Ashley Madison, we all know your scamming people. lol

I believe Ashley Madison is a service to be aware of. Once you enter your credit card information you can not delete them explicitly - although you ask Customer Service to help you! If you choose another payment method it will probably change - but that seems to be the only way to delete credit card information. And the worst is that they keep tapping from your account without you giving explicit permission to do so, plus on my credit card statement says: Escort Service !!

read about it on Jezebel and signed up out of boredom.

of the first 100 search hits, more than 60 were fake profiles, identified by simply plugging profile pictures into Google Image Search. it's unknown whether these are being created by independent scammers, or whether the site itself creates them to give the illusion of activity. either way, it's dodgy.

further, they also have a loose relationship with the truth when it comes to billing - despite my declining their offer of recurring billing, they billed me anyway, illegally. that's currently in dispute resolution with Paypal, because they didn't reply to me directly.

steer clear of them. real scam, no value. they are sleazy as hell, and rely on their assumption that you'll be too ashamed to make a big noise about their unethical practices. they even take that so far as to charge you to delete your profile, which is essentially blackmail by implication.

total douchebags.

After I received a few emails the just said the same thing. 'lets chat' (these cost 5 credits) I looked into my history and in there hidden was my recurring cc payment details wtf. I am sure its just a 'bug' - yeah right. I have disabled that now, cleared my profile and abandoned the site.

I really hope they don't start using my credit card. gulp. what a fool. I don't need the stress. ps they charge 19 USD to close your profile.

Of course its not a scam for women. with a 75:1 ration men to women, theres no need to scam women! *lol* The more women the site has, the better chance of guys paying and paying again. So because there are so little women around, they need to capture the interest of the paying customers, mainly the guys! Wink

One thing that GREATLY catches my attention is, There is a lot of good looking ladys on there with there face in plane view! (easy recognizable) You would think if you where married you would want to keep some discretion, wouldn't you? In my searches there (form my area) there was only one picture of a lady that fell below the average, how can that be? Only good looking ladys want affairs? Rolling Eyes

With that being said, Im sure the site is legit to a point. But remember, taking a horny guys money is easy when sex is involved. Razz

Ashley Madison is a horrible scam! Most men on there are in a bad marriage(so they say!) or they are looking for paramours and remain discrete because they are perverts and are losers! My advise is to stay away from that site as you can be physically assaulted or even worse drugged. Be very careful and be sure do get tested for HIV and syphilis if you have used unprotected sex.

I'm a 'real' woman and have a profile on AM. I've responded to many messages and have met up with several men, a couple of who I even 'clicked' with. So, no, it's not a scam. Having said that, I'm sure there's a fair smattering of fake profiles on there for various reasons. For instance, I've been stalked by someone who created a profile very different to his original profile, obviously concocted purely for stalking purposes. Ashley Madison is like a microcosm of life; there will be some genuine people, some fakes, and some psychos. You have to use your good judgement and intuition to sort out which is which. I will never, for instance, meet up with someone until I've exchanged quite a few messages with them and have established some rapport. I can usually figure out by their profile and message writing style whether they're fake/dangerous or not......the psychos/dumbnuts tend to have a lot of spelling mistakes and grammatical errors Smile And the sex fiends usually have very sexualised profiles and alarming content in their messages. The ones just 'dipping their toe in the water' have nothing of substance in their profile and very brief messages. My intuition has proven me correct every time, and overall it's been a fun and positive experience for me......but I realise the odds are stacked in my favour being a woman on this site. Good luck out there!!

It used to be real about 4-5 yrs back and I had success back then. Now the percentage of fake women profiles is about 95%. They charge you credits to contact ladies (comes about $2-3 per contact). These are the fake scams I have seen so far:
1) Ladies indicate interest. You pay to contact them and then nothing.. Twisted
2) Often I will get replies or message from ladies at 2 AM in the morning. Then I look at their profile, and they have last logged on about 2-3 days back!
3) Ladies indicate interest. You pay to contact them. They actually give you an email and pictures. After 1-2 emails nothing...
4) New ladies profiles in my area. They wink at you. You pay and contact them. 2 days later they have moved about 100 miles away. Another week they have moved another 100 miles! Big Grin

Do not get me wrong. There are a few real women, but if you spend $50 contacting ladies, about $45 goes to these fake profiles.. I think AM likely promotes these fake profiles.

Yeah, its so hard to be a guy and find a legitimate NSA. Why can't there be blog like this where pees can share info. I guess everything turns into cess pool eventually. It would be good to pick your brains tho....reply if you want to chat and see where it goes.

I am 100% real - and quite happy that I joined up.
If you're not getting the results you'd hoped for, take a look at your profile. Are you too negative? Too forward? Too cocky? Trust me, as a girl - these are major turn-offs....and we will *not* initiate contact... (never mind respond to your "Access To Private Showcase" requests...).
Please don't post a pic of your crotch - and *don't* tell us how you'll "satisfy" us - or how you can "go all nite long".
Trust me, if we like your profile, we will find that out all on our own. ;-)

Okay, I was on AM for two months and learned a few things.

First, YES there are fake profiles- some generated by AM and some by scammers who want to pull your chain. I created several fakes myself just for fun.

Second, if you understand the basic principals of marketing and are reasonably good looking you CAN meet and have an affair with a married woman. I met with three, dated two, and had (having) a long term affair (a WILD one) with one. Absolutely the best sex I've ever had and we are still involved after six months. It wasn't very hard to do. Note; If you're a man- be prepared to pay for a room a few times a month- after a month my FWB and I agreed to split the bill; I always paid the security deposit. Pick a decent place- no creepy motels. YES-nice hotels DO take cash.

Third piece of advice- you will have best luck if you have a little class. Understand what these women want and key into it- its is not rocket science. Remember- its not about you, its about them. They aren't getting any attention at home- make sure they get it from you.

If you really want to have an affair AM does work- you just need to understand how to use it.

LIAR. YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY CONNECTED WITH THAT SHAM OF A SCAM SITE.


Why does anyone think that they are meeting beautiful girls for free, have sex for free, just by signing up to a website. She/ her/ any slut can just walk out of her door and pick up men easily just by making herself obvious. Why she want to bother with an online desperado?

Ashley Madison site is fake, They lie by advertising is 100% free.

A week back I went on Ashley Madison's site and registered after reading this page.

Within 2 days after joining I met a nice girl online and we started to chat and even went for a meal together. I must admit that it didnt work out but nevertheless, she was real. Today I met another girl that seems promising and we are meeting tomorrow afternoon. My point is folks... if an unattractive guy like me can make things happen on Ashleymadison, there is no excuse why you cant. As for some girls not being real or whatever is being said... well i think that is complete and utter *censored*. Have any of you guys actually tried meeting someone? If any fake profiles exist, it is most likely due to some male users who pretend to be girls and then try to get you to sign up for some shitty webcam site.

Sorry but i just needed to share my $0.02c worth

Not necessarily a scam, but not the place for the most stable of personalities. I joined on a whim, starting corresponding with someone, and it got interesting in a playful, flirtatious way. Though we seemed to click, I gradually felt something was not right about her--can't say why, but just a feeling. When I politely told her I decided not to pursue a relationship, she went batshit crazy, sending me a few nasty emails, one vaguely threatening. I quickly blocked her from my email feed and jumped ship from AM. Avoid this site is my recommendation!

The site is real. I have been married for 20 years. Two years ago I decided it was time for a little spice in my life. After sending out more than 50 messages, then re-reading them, I decided just to be a little humorous, respectfull and if the answer wasn't a 'No', then I was semi-persistent. I ended up meeting a wonderful married woman. We get along still to this day and the sex is just amazing.

The key is not to be a bone head. Pretty simple. It is really deflating to a mans character though, as these woman seem to only want to choose the cream of the crop because they are getting bombarded with messages. The ones that lower their expectations a little, like the woman I've been with, make AM a possibility for the average to above average guy to be able to hook up.

Site works for me. Been on 1 year.,spent maybe $400 total for credits over this year. Met tons of women and had sex with them even when I was was on travel for work from San Diego to NYC.

I didn't use the traveling man as I think that is a waste. I changed my zip code on my profile to whatever city I was headed too. Yes it cost money for guys to send messages but the relationships I built thru the site is worth every penny to me. You will send messages and get no responses, it happens a lot so don't get discouraged. For me it comes and goes as I know how to weed out who is less likely to respond. Don't email anyone who doesn't have a photo on the site. They will likely not be on there for long. If you see a photo and profile that sounds and reads as to good to be true, more than likely it is. If it's real of course that person is getting tons of emails from every tom, dick and Harry. So unless you have something profound you will get ignored.

The site is definitely legit. That being said you need to pay attention. If the profile is weak without much information and the pic is of some smoking hot chick than red flags should be going up in your head. Unfortunately that's usually a real person who is trying to scam you in some way. Report the profile immediately if that person asks you to leave the site for Skype and never do video chat. Unfortunately these women are indeed hot, will indeed video chat and then they will record you and black mail you with it. Never happened to me but I wondered why so many wanted to go to Skype and researched it and this is what I came up with. It doesn't happen as much on Ashley Madison but they're still out there.
The reason I say it's real is that I met someone using and unlike any other site I've tried, been rejected by some. If every girl you reach out to is interested it means the site is a scam. Scammers will never reject you. You have to learn the ropes and realize that you are going on to a site full of immoral people by its very nature. That includes you lol. Be careful, don't disclose too much too fast and don't be a pervert and your chances are good.

My concern is not so much fake profiles from women, but fake profiles from women who may be affiliated with Ashley Madison in some way. The payment model works for me. After a few days of following all of the suggestions, I have had no luck. That's OK as long as A.M. is not sponsoring the profiles I spend my credits on. I am pressing them pretty hard in support about what their policies are. I have asked for credit refunds on profiles I think were fake and may have been affiliated in some way with A.M.

Is there any hard information on how many fake profiles A.M. sponsors and whether the marking opt out actually works? Think back on the two chats I had with a 30 something with no pictures who contacted me, I could have been talking to an AI. I sent her credits and begged her to just acknowledge she was a real person and did not get a response.

Wow... I'm a woman and I'm real!
Be respectful, read the woman's profile if she spent time on it. Let her know what you like about her profile and what interests you about her. Be interesting and interested. There are various reasons why a woman signs up on AM. Hopefully you'll find someone or a few that are compatible with the reasons you signed up. I've noticed there are a variety of different types of men. Some are actually looking for real relationships. I've only been on AM for a few months and my experience has gone way beyond what I'd hoped for. Each encounter helps me learn more about who I am and what I'm truly looking for in a relationship. That being said, I also move to the 'women seeking women' section from time to time and have experienced the frustration of woman winking or making me their favorite. It does feel like they are enticing me to contact them. In that section of AM woman pay for the contact. So I understand why some of you may feel like you are being taken in. I believe that if you write a respectful interesting message and pay to have it sent that you deserve an answer back of some kind. Saying 'no' to someone is hard though. Happy hunting.... it's fun!

So my concern is I send very respectful messages to women roughly my age. As part of the message I respectfully request that they respond. I send gifts so they have credits to respond if needed. So far not one response.

That is the basis of my concern there are a lot of bots out there. These profiles appear and disappear in online status. That is why I think there may be A.M. sponsored bots involved.

It's real, I'm sure lots of planted profiles. My now ex-wife used it to hook up with some D-bag on there.

The site should burn in hell.

I think AM works great for women, less so for men. The first issue is the chat bots. For new users, they can be pretty convincing. Allowing men to spend money on a computer program is just evil.

I did get a response to some of my innocuous support questions. So far there has been nothing on the chat bots.

So for a woman, it is a great experience lots of attention from real people. for men not so much. Especially for average looking men.

At this time, I am still convinced there are a lot of fake profiles put there by Ashley Madison personnel. I don't see why a real women would be so rude as to no not at least acknowledge a polite message. Since my first pose, I have received two acknowledgements. I don't see any reason for anyone else to post a lot of fake profiles.

OK, not a scam as nearly as I could tell.

The one really scummy thing they do is send out messages that say they are from a particular women but they are not. I my case, this led to a HUGE misunderstanding with a lady.

There are a lot of scammers on Ashley Madison - mostly young. I called Ashley Madison with a list, but then discovered all of those accounts had already been deleted. Credits I had spent on those deleted accounts were refunded to me.

AM is very coy about the male female ration. I counted women and men 50-59 and 60+ in my area who had logged on in the past 7 days. 50-59: 196 men to 26 women. 60+ was 195 to 10 women! Not good odds for the only OK looking guys.

I sent out a lot of nice notes to women asking for a response of any sort. Less than 20% (maybe 10%) responded. So that is why I am not sure about the fake profile thing.

Having been on that site for three years, and having mot met a soul, I'll tell you what I think:

Most of the women are fake, unless they are the ubiquitous BBWs. The winks are just to get you to waste money. Ditto requests to chat.

There may be an occasional real person, not fat, who is intelligent and not a paid escort, but they are extremely rare. You're better off with Craigslist.

A few years ago AM was worthwhile but now ...

I'm a married female who used the site 3 years ago and found a affair partner. In those days a woman didn't have to buy credits, but could exchange messages with a guy who had paid for credits who initiated the conversation. I was always polite and responded to men who contacted me even if there was no potential there, just to assure them that I was real and that there are a few real married women on there seeking affairs.

My affair recently ended and so I went back to the site expecting the same type of experience. Instead what I found was that after being on the site for 4 days, they blocked my access to respond to messages.

So here we have these poor guys wasting credits on contacting me, and I can't even respond unless I buy credits!

I was debating buying credits but I think I will look elsewhere to find an affair partner. I apologize to any men I was unable to respond to.



You must be such an exceptionally polite & pleasant lady for subterfuge-anyone would be privileged to have an affair!

I just received a message from a guy who said something about being on Ashley Madison. I replied, no, I'm on Established Men. So this means that AM is sharing profiles with EM, without the permission of any of the profile owners.

He of course got snarky telling me to keep track of what sites I joined...but the fact of the matter is that EM is the only one I signed up on!

I'll be leaving EM, I have no desire to have my profile shared without my permission.

AM is totally not a scam. I have slept with at three woman from the site. The problem is the ration is 100 to 1 male to female. So you have to bring your A game and look half way decent.

All the losers on here saying the site is a 100% scam probably live in their parents basement, are over weight and just plain stupid.

I have to say I am pretty new to AB site, but do think it works if threaded carefully. For the record, I did not sleep with anyone, but did get messages from real women after just posting profile. Obviously I also got bombarded by fake users it seems. I never replied to anyone who is not in my proximity and who does not have anything hand written (at least a few sentences that make sense). Still no guarantee obviously, but... that definitely is going to save some credits it seems... Now overall experience is pretty poor - the site itself is basically a ripoff - they advertise that they will not charge you more than 5 credits after you initiate communication (to the same person), but in really started charging me for every message I sent. Not to mention if I sent a wink and lady responded with a message, they charged me double credits amount simply because she (and not I) initiated conversation. I do not remember they mentioned anything about that when they lured me onto the site. Just be careful... if you still want to use it. But unless you have lots of money to waste with odds not in your favor (given the ratios of men to women), I would not recommend it. There are other avenues with higher odds for sure...

150 bucks for a week as that is about how long 500 credits last so take the money and get yourself a a beautiful, young escort it will be much cheaper in the end. I am on the site 2 days and my credits half used so I will not buy more go to backpage and select your city and you will find this much more cost effective.

The site has the potential to be good but it is just not worth the money you have to dish out for credits if AM made it more reasonable like an unlimited set period fee it would get more traffic. more users and happier customers.

Hello Everyone, I have been on Am for three years, at first I was having a great time, doing well a few hookups, found one I liked and turned off my profile, then recently created a new one with a lot of information in the bio, no public pictures, but a couple of private ones.

Now after a week all I have is a horror story, I contacted several women, received back 5 responses, all asking for pictures, fine I was okay with that because they were far enough away, then something really weird started happening, out of the 5 I contacted, 4 of them had a similar story, things like I want to connect, you are so interesting, I am leaving this site soon, contact me at this email, yada yada

Then it got really strange, all 4 also said to contact them at a different site, some cougar sites, some bdsm sites, etc.
with a different or same profile name, the best one was to go to the site and create a profile and she gave me the profile name "So she could find me", the I was given a "Test" in order to prove I was serious, I needed to sign up for a "Silver Membership"

So I have to say Am has turned into something other than what it was 3 years ago, so far I have been contacted by nothing but fake profiles or misleading information designed to get me to another site, the best of the best was after several emails with one including pictures that were not smoking hot, more like the girl next door, all about how she wanted to meet me, including taking a direct flight to me after her "Business" was finished, I even told her there isn't an airport within 100 miles of me (Direct flight from Australia)

So then, and guys you are going to love this, I get this email

Good morning to you,how are you doing and how was your night??Did you dream about me last night?My day was kinda busy yet again today and stressful as well i must say,i had to go to the customs office to check in my stuffs so i can prepare coming back home.i was checked and everything seem to be ok and i was made realist that i could leave probably weekend or next week,am very happy and excited right now baby and i just cant wait to meet you in person,am having butterflies in my stomach right now and feeling kinda nervous to meet you as well but i wont rush and will be myself till i finanly meet you.when i got to the custom office today...The flight ticket went higher than i thought because of all the stuffs i got and right now i'm not having much funds on me... I was told the ticket would cost $3,000 and all i have on me right now is just $2,400, I'm really worried and bothered right now, Cuz i don't know where i'm gonna get the rest of the money,I tried to see if i could get some money from my account or even use my credit card but am being told that they dont accept such transactions down here and when i asked why they told me its a developing country and their government are trying to find all kinda credit card frauds,scams and all the bad stuffs around here and that why most transaction down here are being done in cash...Baby i feel so confused coz i have really tried my best and i feel so bad that this might cause a little delay for me to meet you soon.I sold some golds out to a company down in UK,But they paid me with a cashier's check of one of the local banks here, I have the sum of $850,000 on the check, But when i took the check to the bank, They said i would need to pay some taxes to the Govt, before the check would be paid out to me, I was told to pay the sum of $7,500 so i can get the Govt approval on the check for them to get it cashed for me because its a very large amount of money.But i think my first piority right now is to get outta here, I can have the check cleared when i get back to the states. Sweetie,i will be so much glad if you can help me with the rest of the money needed to get my flight ticket, I'm gonna get it paid back to you first thing when i get back to the states.Well honey,i hope i can trust you enough to do this for me and i will be looking forward to hear back from you soonest Cuz i have already told the customs to continue with checking my stuffs in so i dont have anything to delay me if am able to get the funds.Am gonna attach my payment slip along with this message just to let you know am telling the truth.


There was no attachment, how could there be, oldest scam on the internet, whatever you do, don't fall for this or anyone like it, probably not even a woman, I suppose it is extremely profitable and they are cleaning up on the saps.

For what its worth I think the site has gone down the tubes, nothing left except a cash cow for the site with no regards for reputation, the more that know, the better off all of us guys are.

I would ask for advice as to any other legitimate site, however then I would be your competition LOL

So I will stay awhile longer at least until the credits are burned up, maybe just maybe (That's what we all think) there are woman out there that are serious about this, however so far my money would be better spent in a strip club.

I knew of the site but pretty much ignored it. Then I got onto it, via a few links.

Few observations.

-Does "Viewed me" work as other "viewed me" on other sites do? Because I find it weird that I have messages from 2 women but neither have apparently viewed my profile according to "viewed me" Seems suspect

-There seems to be about only 4 profiles with pictures in the couple of pages of people near me. Suspicious that most of the profiles seem to come from towns so small that they aren't even towns(localities they are called), How could they all fit in there? lol

-I'm assuming one of the 4 with pictures is genuine because she seems to have been online between now and when I started an account earlier today and she hasn't tried to spam me. If she was a bot/scammer, she's have sent me messages already.

-The other 3 with pics....one hasn't been online for a while so even if she's genuine, she may have given up. As for the other two....one messaged me 3 times over the space of 2 hours. You'd have to assume scammer(if I read her messages I'd be out 15 credits). As for the last one....well her picture is not a catwalk model, it's someone who would be judged average-looking by society so you'd assume she's genuine because fake profiles usually use supermodel types for their fake profile pictures...however on the other hand she is from one of those tiny localities I mentioned before and that gets me suspicious. Plus she is one of the 2 women that messaged me and somehow hasn't viewed my profile, until someone explains that it means I'd probably rather not waste the $59 dollars on this site.

AM is not a scam. I am a 46 year old woman who has been off and on the site for 6 years. I have enjoyed 3 long term relationships ( 1 year or more) as a result. All 3 men I have met have been successful professionals, attentive and fun, and very good looking. I have met many more men that were all very real, but did not choose to pursue an ongoing relationship. I am an educated, physically fit and attractive woman. My current relationship is with a very attractive, successful business owner with which I will be celebrating my second anniversary soon. AM has worked for me and I would recommend it to anyone. Cool

I am a 40 year old woman who has been on AM for 6 days. I am definitely real. I have noticed the site is sending messages to 100s of members on my behalf even though I haven't viewed any of these men nor am I interested in someone who lives far from me. That is very misleading and I can see how the men may get frustrated. I can't find a way to stop the auto messaging and may leave the site just because I am overwhelmed. Unfortunately most of the men are just looking for the sex rather than the affair and connection. For those men I would suggest you just pay an escort. If you want someone who doesn't sleep with a ton of men, why would you expect sex after a single lunch?

Been taken by AM as I suspect the collect messages are from AM guys the are just getting customers to use more credits ----many profiles are fake and AM knows that but wants people to use up credits. AM pays for employees to e-mail guys and spend more on buying credits. I know all this from a good source but can not disclose as could get someone in trouble.

sorry to pop your bubble... but AM is very real...

I have met several women on there with very little effort?

sometimes frustrating only because there are small selection.

but patients and politeness seems to win every time for me.

I even had a chance with a woman on the "Traveling Man" option... which I thought would never happen that one I messed up ;( so it does work, just need to be polite and patient.

maybe your profile or photos are the issue is...? remember, these women must be very selective so the response rate will be very, very low.

I was with my FWB last night from AM. stayed overnight and everything...

going to meet another woman tomorrow night that seems like it actually might turn into a real relationship... and boy is she a bombshell!!!!

best of luck to everyone...

Total scam! Like an idiot, I signed up and bought their basic package. The women on the site are mostly fake. They lure you in with fake 'winks' and when you try to communicate, nothing happens. Then when you try to cancel your subscription they make it very difficult. Then they charge you $19.00 to delete your profile! All in all this site is a total scam. They are making money because the world is full of desperate, gullible, idiots like me! My advice, DO NOT sign up with Ashley Madison!! BIG MISTAKE!!

I am on AM and I am very very real, quite attractive (blonde, petite, 5 foot 4 and 120 pounds and toned due to ballet and working out). I have found a few good men but some are crass. I am a professional and have a detailled profile that I wish for a professional like myself too. It is simply my marriage has lost that spark and my spouse, although wonderful in so many ways, has become my best friend and he admits , sexually, overall his drive is not there anymore. But i am happy with AM so far.

I've played around with the AM site for several years now, mostly as personal amusement and to analyze how they go about separating gullible men from their $$$. I've never even come close to a hookup via this site. I'd classify AM as 90% scam and here's why.

If your credits run out, you'll receive nary a wink from any of the "women" there. But once you replenish your account, bam!, the winks and messages start flowing in. AM clearly targets fake flirts toward the male site members. And they've gotten more clever at it over time. Early on, they would approach men with fake women who were hot young babes. A reverse photo search often turned up purloined photos of models, and minor celebrities. Over time, however, AM has set up fake profiles of women with more realistic characteristics, e.g., late-'30s - early '40s, fairly attractive, but not knockouts. These "women" send winks or messages requiring expending one's credits. Once they've got the mark drained of credits, the profiles suddenly vaporize. Poof! Gone. Occasionally, they simply change the geographical location of the "woman," but leave the photos and profile info untouched -- in order to troll in other waters. Moreover, this ploy appears to be done from Asia or another distant continent since the winks and messages seem always to be sent at wee hours in the morning/N.American time zones.

Upshot: AM is heavily scam territory. You're better off cruising for dates at the produce section of Whole Foods and spending your hard-earned cash there, than wasting your time being consistently frustrated and cheated on AM.

I know that there a LOTS of fake profiles, as many have stated here. Here is your certain test for the fakes. This is what you do:

(1) Find a profile you like and "add them to your favorites." (You get 1000 free)

(2) Wait and see how they respond (they are messaged that you have added them to your favorites list).

(3) They message you the following: "please send me a message and we can start a conversation." --> FAKE FAKE
They do not state anything about your profile (I am a very healthy, muscular guy with "non-identifying" muscle shots of by body....appealing to most anyone). They do not state interest in their message. They do not provide an (anonymous) email address off site. FAKE FAKE

(4) Then, if you are not convinced, go to the tab that reads, "Viewed Me." You will see that the "girl" who messaged you didn't even read your profile.

Clearly, these are AM FAKE profiles designed to generate $ via messages.


I have an act, cancelled my cc after initial set up, do NOT send messages, and only response to messages sent where the gal gives some "off site" contact options. I am still waiting for this to happen.


By and large, its all a SCAM.

I've had sex with lots of milfs and some college chicks thanks to badoo, the problem is that a lot of the girls will fall in love with me. Yes, for real. I hate breaking hearts.

Since I do not want anything but sex, and knowing that Ashley Madison is focused on having affairs I decided to give it a try. Here are my impressions:

- Your credit card information will be permanently stored. I think you have to pay $20 in order for they to delete your information.
- The user agreement says you can manually disable automatic membership renewal, this is a lie.
- CAREFUL: If you run out of credits, they automatically will charge you the same amount of money you last spent.
- It's quite expensive. $50 the minimum, this membership will give you 100 credits. I don't remember very well, but I think it's 5 credits for opening a personalized message and 10 credits for sending a personalized message.
- Pay attention when if you decide to send a message. By default, it will be with "High priority" and it will cost you 5 or 10 credits. Again , I don't remember exactly how much.
- Women don't have to pay a cent. How's that for equality? This gives place to scammers and false profiles.
- Most of the profiles are fake and/or do not have pictures nor detailed information.
- Of the very few real girls at A-M, most of them are already divorced o just broke up with their partner. How can we have an affair in a situation like this?
- Most of the girls are just looking for a friend or even a boyfriend, but almost no one there is looking for an affair. I mean, what's the point of being in a affair-focused site if you are not looking for an affair? There should be no feelings involved in a site like A-M, girls are just making us guys waste our time and money in this expensive site.

In my 3-4 weeks being a member at A-M, I've managed to have sex with a hot, divorced milf. It was awesome sex, but now she was to be my GF but I just wanted an affair... I met another girl my age, she's married and we still haven't had sex, but I'm sure it's just a matter of time.

TLDR: Do NOT sign up to ashleymadison. It's a waste of time.

I tested AM for a couple of weeks

after registration you get a flow of good looking young and not-so-young women (often with nude pics and/or graphical/explicit sexual details) eager to get in touch with you through messages and chats....that -of course - you cannot read/respond to, before you buy a very very expensive bucket of credits
AND I had no pics of myself just few (true) details (height/weight, muscular, interests etc)

Most likely these are fake profiles and/or escorts....even if a "standard" does not exist I 'd say not the "common" behavior of even open-minded women... in my humble experience so far...
Either way not what I am looking for (and not looking for a marriage either) so I canceled my (free) profile

I never pay a subscription before I get a feeling of what I am truly getting afterwards

BTW they charge money to completely erase your profile/privat data...which is also a scam sign...

Curious about this datingticket stuff. I have been on the site a week, met a couple of people, but they want me to register for a site, and then pay for a trial period, and then provide them my username, and password.
I recommend not doing any of that. Since they can get all of your information from these sites that provide a datingticket number. I don't know how that crap works, since there is no such thing that I can find any information about.

So I was just wondering if there is anyone here who has been taken by one of these? Or if this might somehow be a legitimate thing

AM is definitely not a scam, but this thread proves what is true about every dating site regardless of sexual orientation. Using any of them is like trying to empty the ocean with a spoon. Most are a complete waste of your time and many of their users don't want a date or sex or anything other than an evening's entertainment trolling horny people. AM is bound to be a special case, since many of the women don't want an affair, but use the site for attention and fantasy fulfillment. But it can work and you can get occasionally get laid - just like anywhere else.

if your here at AM, you are being scammed . There are no profiles that are real . Its just a huge scam to empty your wallet for nothing . Bought a min package the price increased 30% the minute it was submitted scam. All kinds of bot contact from users in the USA . These sites are for the birds ! Back to singles clubs at least those people are real .

I'd say it's mostly a scam. Definitely fake profiles. I set up a second, fake account on a different email address and tried contacting some of the same women (via wink, i wasn't going to pay to test this theory).

When the same results happened with the second account, as the first, with certain women, i knew the fix was in. I wink'd three women in December. they all replied back quickly. when i sent messages, i never got a response. so about 2-3 months later, opened new account, winked same women, same, collect reply sent within 12 hours. i actually emailed AM, they didn't reply for about 5 business days, used same canned "please feel free to report all fake accounts" email, and gave me 30 bonus credits "for taking so long to reply" ... more like, they knew i was on to them, and just added to shut me up.

but that being said, i had a 6-month affair with a local woman, from the site. she was very, very real. and i've exchanged private email addresses and texting with a few other women, so i know it's legit, but, i'd say, barely.

i'd give it a "barely legit." in that they make the site appear much more populated by women, by using fake profiles. it can be difficult to weed out the fakes, IMO.

i also get a lot of random winks/messages from women all over the US, nowhere near where i live in canada.

i started winking at women to gauge interest, and then if they reply, i check to see if they even looked at my profile. that's how i decide if i should send them a message or not. also, keep your mind on how long you've been seeing these profiles showing up, and how often they're "i'm online!" shows up. honestly i can't imagine that many women regularly signing on for months and months at a time.

I have been on the site for one week. I got an email with very enticing pictures. I tried to get her to call me. Then she got irate because I would not give her my AM screen name. Lexi red, Lexi 8 and Lexi 87 were "her" reply names. She then said I wanted her to call me because she said I wanted to rape her! She started off so sweet then turned into a psycho! Obviously a fake. I'm trying to hook up with locals and I'm getting chat requests from models mainly in California, fake. I'm still trying to have women to contact me through my real email address or have them call me when they seem interested. Communications go dead after that. I'm using up my credits and I'm gone. All I want is one good hookup. I have no time for anything else. The wife would want to know where my money is going.

I logged onto AM after all the news broke out. I am a Canadian woman in her 40s. The moment I signed on, I was inundated by messages because I offered a real profile message and did not check off any boxes. I did not post a picture either. I am married and was looking for something more. I thought, why let all the men have the fun? But, I was also very honest. I am not a hooker, porn star, escort, stripper or otherwise. I am a normal professional woman. Anyway, I met two wonderful men with whom I chatted but then I met a third. He and I are now into a wonderful affair. He is exactly what I wanted: someone with whom I wanted to have a love affair. When you make a woman feel desired and wanted she will gladly please you in the bedroom. The relationship has nothing to do with money or presents or otherwise. It's purely emotional and physical. It's amazing. If and when it ends I will likely go back and do it again. However, I know I am the rare exception to a vilified site.

I'm a man who signed up there, and I've met five real women so far. Only hooked up with one, but did meet the other four.
I also created a female profile to see how it works from their side.
First and most important: They can set their profile to AUTOMATICALLY respond to a man's wink contacts.
The messages are:
Thanks for contacting me but I only have time to respond to full messages.
Hi! I have a lot of winks and I don't want to miss out on a great connection. Please send me a message and photo and I'll respond if I'm interested.
Thanks for contacting me but I only have time to respond to full messages.
There are a couple more they can choose from, too.

The women there get bombarded with winks, messages and unsolicited pictures. So if you spend a precious 5 credits to contact them, take the time to make your message title and body stand out. Talk about something in their profile, and how yours matches.
And don't send them a pic of your dick until they ask. Instant turnoff. Women think differently; get inside their mind before you contact them.

And you can turn off mail and messages from robot women in your settings. You can also turn off Priority Mail default. Do this; they cost 20 credits.

If you don't want to use a credit card, you can send them an international money order. Takes longer, but they can't automatically renew your credits. They also accept gift card balances, but it's not a great exchange rate.

Bottom line: They do use robot women, but a lot of the women there are real. Few are serious about having an affair, so pick and choose who you contact carefully. I wink first. If they don't wink back, I move on.
And the robot women are pretty obvious. Young, hot 20somethings, usually from a few states away, who message you WITHOUT looking at your profile first. I'm 50something and live on the East Coast. Why would some hot chick in San Diego want to meet me?
Ashley Madison is the only real 'cheaters' website I've found.

To be honest, I always had an inclination that the data breach happen one day. I never really felt entirely safe using such a huge, popular site.
I also didn't feel that they were being entirely fair when I discovered that YOU HAVE TO PAY if you want them to delete all the data that they hold on you. Seriously? Pay upon joining and then pay when you leave?

I personally prefer using smaller sites to find someone to have a discrete affair with. I just have a feeling that this kind of site is not such a significant target for hackers, willing to disclose someone's personal details. I tried quite a few of them and the one I really like was NoStringsAffair.com. There are plenty of members in my area and I had sex with a gorgeous woman I met on the site already! We have had our first date in a restaurant to get to know each other a little bit, but when we met up the second time we booked a room in a hotel and had the most amazing night Wink

The great thing about that site is the 'no strings' aspect. We continued to have an affair and both of us were cool about it staying that way. We would just meet up and have sex together and no obligation to turn it into a serious relationship. Would recommend it.

Tried few affair sites and here's what I figured out: AM looks great site before you pay,then you will get conversations with someone,but who knows who they are.After a while when your nearly out of credits they just stop replying.Also the ones whose profile you have checked out,just happen to be the ones allways on line,funny how they never reply though.I didn't want to keep paying,so I left the site. Nostringsaffair lots of real women (in my area),inexpensive to use and you get what you pay for.The last one I tried was maritlaffair.com and it failed.The women are very sketchy on this site.And,even worse,they’re not much to look at.The attractive women are mostly just a bunch of fake profiles.I couldn’t get any dates set-up with even a fatty.

The site isn't a scam. My wife definitely cheated on me through this site. I have been married 15 years and came home from a trip recently to find a very long love letter/song on my wife's phone. I confronted her and was destroyed to find out that she did meet someone through the site and committed adultery. After a failed suicide attempt, I am here to tell you that the site is real. I don't know why women cheat on men. It is like they really hate them or something. There is pretty much no worse feeling of betrayal and violation than the one I experienced recently. For all the women reading this message who do this to hurt your husbands. Get a divorce first or even ask for his participation and permission. He might say yes, or just precede to the divorce if he can't handle you being with another man. Karma will catch up and deal with those people who continue to do this to hurt. I hope that all people reading this find true love and a meaningful relationship. "Hell, hath no fury like a woman's scorn." God bless

We both don't want to leave our marriage nor do we want the other person to disrupt their home life. We both have big careers and need to be even more discreet. We meet 2-3x a month and have mind blowing sex in between work engagements. Sometime he swings by for a quickie at the office. It's been 6 months and I am so happy.

I feel compelled to tell you as an actual normal female on this site that I am furious at the scamming of people. Lately Ashley sends out dozens and dozens of winks "from me" to men I have never viewed. Last night at three am they sent about twenty.. When I was sound asleep. I feel so bad for the nice gentleman who actually think that I sent it and then may buy more credits to message me. Also they show me "online" 24/7 even when I am logged out.. Even when my phone is shut. I am pretty furious. Won't be using them any longer and would recommend men save their money and go elsewhere

Good for you! So with that much claimed success, what is your secret to AM?



Be very careful how you spend your credits, there definitely are lots of fake profiles, old dormant profiles and scammers...

After having joined wait a week and avoid all messages u rcv in that first week....
Avoid anyone who hasnt been on line for 7+ days may well be somone who just joined out of curiosity never to come back to site
Avoid anyone who hasnt bothered to take the time to fill out a written profile if someone is interested they are going to have put some written information in their profiles about themeslves
Never chat on AM instant Messenger total waste of time and anyone asking u to do so prob AM employee

I have started each conversation with either free winks or adding people to favorites, check to see who is viewing your profile. Not a single chick has actually sent a paid message to me so ur going to have to weed your way through which collect messages to accept and which return winks to reply to. Of the paid messages ive sent ive at least had a conversation with about 50% be polite and courteous but also get to the point as its most likely the woman is not just talking to you, they are recieving 2-300 messages at a time. Try and get her to swap email addresses, if you get that far you are really in good shape and its now down to you to seal the deal



F.Y.I women on AM use the site for free. There is no way for us to send a non collect message, as there is no offer for us to pay, I searched after a guy asked me about a "collect message" I sent. I thought huh? I thought the site was free so I searched and for women it's free

I used it and I met a terrific guy. I can't say about other women but I am absolutely real, we are having a great time, I am sure he could testify the same that it does work. I think there must be fakes on there as I have had men leave me some weird mean messages assuming I guess that I was fake, But I wasn't , So I guess the best advice I could give is look at the profiles if they say a lot and arent just checked boxes they are probably real. Also I personally don't like to live chat I find it intrusive if I don't even know them. I would rather receive a message first. I would suggest you not use the chat feature at all. I ended up turning mine off. If a woman gives you her email but then stops responding she probably just lost interest or found someone else she liked. As a female I can tell you I got lots of messages and it was hard choosing. Lastly women are free on AM so any message a female sends you has to be collect. They don't even offer us an option to pay. Just look at the profiles carefully before you accept a message. But I am living proof there are real women on there. I was looking for more than a booty call however and guys with nude pictures or who would ask sexual questions right away I would ignore, I am in a wonderful on the side relationship and I owe it AM.

As a man who has used AM for years, I can say that I am very satisfied with this dating site. I have some handicaps: I am older (mid-60s) and over-weight. However, I have emailed and texted a large number of real women and met a smaller number of real women.

I will no longer be using AM however because I have met the love of my life there. She is plain, over-weight, in mid-50s, but real, We are intensely in love with each other. She is the highest libido and pictures herself as a "giver". She knows how to pleasure a man better than any woman I have ever met. I several times have asked her if she belonged to a secret woman's society that teaches women how to pleasure men. Her hands are sexual instruments. She does not want to interfere with either my marriage or family nor me in hers. We will not get divorces, but will remain passionate lovers for the rest of our lives. I spent hundreds of dollars on AM, but that is insignificant compared to intense pleasure and unbelievable love that I get as we see each other many times a week.

I consider her a gift from God.

Being a woman (of color) I can be very selective. Men need to learn 'how-to' seduce a woman and be respectful. I've chatted several men, and met 2 for coffee. However, I have never heard-back from (either). I am attractive and was NOT looking for a sugar-daddy.

Men -- Keep in mind that us women receive massive amount of messages, and I know that I don't reply to every single one...so you MUST BE CREATIVE, AROUSE US with your words.

Men -- You (just) have to keep trying & don't send explicit pics of yourself -- it's a turn-off!!

Yes, there are scammers.

But then there are scammers everywhere and Ashley Madison is better than other kinky dating sites for example. You can generally tell the fake likes and messages by clicking "who's viewed me". If they haven't even viewed your profile, almost 100% chance it's fake!

I have sustained few conversations on Ashley Madison. Would have been loads cheaper to buy girls drinks in a bar!

Actually, I never got much activity on Ashley Madison until I put some pics of my dick up! Women often ask why men do that etc, but obviously they resond to it, regarless of what they say about it. lets face it women do not say what they really want, which is why so many women always have trouble communicating with men who are in general more up-front.

I think it is a scam. Think about it. I read some reviews online and they said that what Ashley Madison does is they create fictitious profiles in your area to get you hooked so you buy credits. I don't know anyone who has actually met anyone on there. You're better off on Craigslist, but be careful. They have their own scams and there are lots of crazy nuts out there.

It’s a scam and I advise you not to go there. In the above thread, the same person keeps coming to claim that AM is good; that’s one of the mercenaries employed to fool you. It’s run by mafiosos to deplete your resources and without achieving anything. Also, there are scammers there looking for your detail and telling you they are in another country eg Africa contrary to their profiles and they don’t have a phone number but Skype. They are Advance Free Fraud wmployees. I don’t understand how those people have the credits if they are truthfully billed. When you reply to those aberrant people, I’m your messages go through even without credits.

AM is a shady site and be careful with your details including bank details

90 percent fake profiles and scams for me. These fake profiles will mimic yours. Somehow get close to your profile location. Rarely view your profile. Want to take you off site to gmail or text your phone number. Then they give you phoney information about them and Always ask you where you live and what you are looking for. How long have you been on here? These profiles are from people in jail, drug rahab, call girls or another country. NSA types. If you give out your phone number you will also get linked to NSA dating ID scam web sites. Your GMAIL will get spammed and they have established phoney profiles of me on other dating sites. No personal information from me however.

They will get you all worked up with language and photos then drop the bomb to have you get a hook up dating ID or whatever. You will find their profiles dissappear overnight. Woman I understand are free on AM so I think that is why we are scammed the most. Their headliner will have you decode their gmail or phone number. Check out my profile and let me know if you are interested. Well there is nothing in the profile that says anything. Woman I trust tell me that they havent heard of any dating ID cards and dont get scammed much. They do get slammed with dick pics though. So men seam to be the most vulnarable on AM.

I notice their profiles rarely offer any detailed information about them other then the suggestions. Some not even those. I will not reply to generic profiles. When you do go off sight they dont want to waste anytime giving any information about them. If they do you can tell their messages are copied and pasted.The most beautiful model pics you have ever seen.

I have had one public visit with a woman whi I met on AM. Did not entice me with boob pictures. Was very cautious. We communicated via gmail as it was easier and eventually shared untrackable phone numbers. It was over 10 days before we actually met and she was legit.

Advice, put a nice detailed profile out there and wait for them to message you. Otherwise you will quickly run out of tokens wasting money on sending first time messages.

I finally decided to buy some credits and when I did it all ended. Nobody would respond to any of my winks or messages. When my credits got low, all of the sudden there was interest in my profile again. So like a complete idiot I bought more credits and guess what, everyone disappeared again and stopped responding.

Guys, we need to band together because it looks like we've had pretty much the same experience with Ashley Madison; the pattern is consistent.

Hardly any men rave about their Ashley Madison experience - it's so rare in fact that I wonder if those glowing reviews are actually fake.

If we stopped giving Ashley Madison our hard earned money, it would either go out of business or be forced to adjust its business model.

*** Guys, we're not going to find what we're looking for on Ashley Madison (okay, maybe .0001% will).

Besides, with the war against men in this country, I'm not even sure if pursuing something on Ashley Madison is smart; at this point, I certainly wouldn't pursue anything without a consensual agreement that is kept as a matter of record between both parties; (I think there's an app for that). {And "no", I'm not an attorney.}

I'm willing to bet that only about one gentlemen in a 1000 has a satisfying experience on AM.

After being on Ashley Madison for almost TWO years, my conclusion is that it's a waste of my precious time and hard-earned money, not to mention that it's sexist and demeaning towards men.

The attitude towards men is appalling; very disrespectful. I'm just speaking for myself - I can't speak for you.

These are some of Ashley Madison's downsides, in my opinion:

1) Too many scammers and fake profiles.

2) More and more sugar babies, escorts and body rub girls are using the site. I have no issue with these beautiful girls but I think they should advertise where men are searching for these services and experiences.

3) An unhealthy ratio of females to males that demotivates the women.

4) But the biggest problem is the attitude of the women. Like you, I often favorite someone so I can easily find her later should I decide I'm actually interested, because if I am interested right now, I'll message them right now. But you know the drill, this the common reply we get (and I'm not even looking for a reply)

"I get too many winks. Please send a full message and a picture and I'll let you know if I'm interested."

Really? That's pretty arrogant and rude in my book. And yet, we put up with it?

Not me. Not anymore.

By the way, I'm not putting my picture up and I'm certainly not sending it without a conversation first and getting a picture from her too; it's about mutual respect and fairly managing risk for all parties.

I'm not saying that there aren't beautiful women on Ashley Madison who know how to be kind and respectful...but I wonder how many of them are actually on A.M?

Thanks for listening to me vent, fellas. It's pretty frustrating.

Here's what I'm thinking of doing, interview and seek a confidential arrangement with a beautiful, engaging, affectionate and respectful lady who is interested in being a sugar baby. Sure, it's only temporary and will cost a little money, but isn't that true of anything in this "dating" world?

Many romantic relationships are based on some form of trade anyway, sadly, so why continue being disappointed and frustrated by the women on Ashley Madison who pretty much just objectify men anyway? In fact, just the other day I saw a female's profile that said, "I'm using this as my candy store. I'm looking for ______. Please send a pic and I'll let you know if I'm interested."

It's a form of misandry.

But I digress...

I think you're better off saving your money and go find what you're looking for on a site like Eros.

At least you'll know what you're getting, the girls are gorgeous, motivated, and you can find reviews about them on other sites in order to protect yourself against the scammers and thieves, plus you'll have a fun time.

Good luck, fellas. I wish you all the best in your relentless quest for romance, affection and love. Many women mistakenly think that all men are looking for is sex. For me, nothing could be further from the truth. All I know is this, I won't find what I'm looking for on Ashley Madison.

Peace.

It seems like most online dating websites are 50/50.

I am real woman and want to share my experience with AM.

I have created 3 accounts (1 male and 2 female accounts). The reason I created male account because I want to see how other women wrote on their profiles, so you know your competitors.
The reason I created 2 female accounts because one of my real account and other account I used to stalk the guy I like (check when he logged in, logged out...)
Now I was surprised that several men I chatted with, they actually have more than 1 account as well. One guy even has at least 5 accounts that I can tell.

When using those accounts, I always play with the number of online users, online within 24 hours, online within 48 hours and online in last 7 days. Men, you would not believe this but the ratio of men/women is more than 10/1. For example if there are 300 men online in the last 24 hours, I rarely found more than 20 women online in the last 24 hours. If you including the fake profiles or double profiles then you know the real women are just so limited.

I did have sex with 1 guy and meet another guy from this site. However the quality of men is so low. Men on this site are cheap so I decide to leave. One guy did not offer drink or food after we had sex at his house. Another guy after 4-5 times I met him, he still did not buy me a drink or a meal... so I figured why women are not on here because of the quality of men as well. Sorry if some of you are true gentlemen, one bad apple rotten the whole basket. Also I am fit, very young and cute. I Look like college age so I am very attractive but terrible experience because I met 2 only cheap men.

My advice: some men are on AM because it is cheaper to find women here than hiring escorts. Women are on AM and find out, they are cheaper than escorts. So women are not into it. So that is why men should not be on AM, go to some sugar daddie sites where women are treated better then you will see more real women.
