    Hi Anonymous,

    I believe one of your pages has a typo…you refer to SafeNetDate as SafeDateNet. If you could rectify that, I’d be grateful! I’d hate for someone’s scam to impact my site traffic. Of course, if I had it to do all over again, I would’ve read your blog before picking a domain name :) Unfortunately, they haven’t invented time travel yet, so I thought this might be the best way to get a hold of you.

    Regards,

    Mike

Beware of following any links in it or of providing the sender with any personal information. Learn more… and then I learned about this blog site..

    Hi,

    I found out about flingsafe via your website. I called this woman? on it, she sent me to another which is not on your list. localdates, which routes you to justhookup.com.

    another response from a different person sent me to mobinect.com. I didn’t notice this on your list either.

    I don’t know how you work this site and take in info but I do have emails and addresses if you want to post them to this site

      Dave, if you could post the messages along with the headers that would be helpful. Just be sure to leave out anything in them that would identify you.

    I recieved an email with a link to safedatecl.com . It looked identical to the other scam sites but I don’t see it listed here. Just wanted to see if you were aware of it. Thanks.

    Would really like to offer an ad and link-back to your site from my own site. This is an awesome service you provide. Do you have a preferred method for me to advertise your site?

    “Jen Sanchez” is throwing out his net on Craigslist again. I got hooked in at first then found this awesome site as soon as “she” redirected me to this website: craigsafedating.com. Her current email is jennifesanch@gmail.com.

    Hey, great site.

    A couple years ago I was in a really bad spot in life and replied to some casual sex craigslist listings. I got some spam very similar to everything else I’ve seen on this site (you have to verify first! sorta things). I DID NOT input any of my credit card info or whatever…..HOWEVER, before they sent me the link they asked me to send them pictures of myself (either as part of what was being asked in the listing or the first couple of email exchanges).

    My major concern is — what will happen to those pictures that I sent of myself to them? Do you think that maybe these scammers store these emails/pictures for blackmailing purposes in the long term? If someone is able to use them to identify me I could be in for a whole lot of embarrassment down the road…I have some work that may put me into the public eye in the next few years and I REALLY hope this doesn’t come back to haunt me. Can anyone shed any light on this? Thanks
