MEDIUM Risk Website
Cupid.com, from our own observations appears to have a medium to low percentage of Scammers from Africa and Eastern Europe. They make up the minority of new profiles on their website from what we have seen, but they are still there. We have also observed that they also make it very difficult to notify them of a found scammer. In fact,we could not find a way to notify them, only a “blockBlock Blocking is a technical action usually on social media or messaging platforms that restricts or bans another profile from seeing or communicating with your profile. To block someone on social media, you can usually go to their profile and select it from a list of options - often labeled or identified with three dots •••” button, which leaves the scammer to go after others. The only mechanism appears to be their general “Contact Us” page. In actuality, because it is a small number, in comparison to sites like POF or Confiro or Badoo, it makes the scammers that are there more powerful, since you don’t expect them. It is for these reasons that we feel they are a MEDIUM Risk – though they could rate a lower risk if they gave the power to their member to report scammers much more easily.
The scammers engage in messages, since most of their activity involves creating “Trial” memberships, so in the trial period they can contact you freely and try to get you onto yahoo messenger or email quickly.
