Hi everyone, I have read everyone's review and I agreed with everyone's experience. I have been on Skout for less than a month and I have met a lot of people who claimed that they live in the states but currently they are out of the country for a certain reasons. Many of them are saying that they are in "USA Army" "working on a contract in Malaysia, Africa, UK or Germany" "they are in some kind of oil business" or "they do buy and trade art work". They all have a same story line. They are all widowers and lost their wives in a "car crash" or "auto crash" or "some type of cancer" and their kids are also died in a "car crash", or their mom and dad are all passed so they are all alone. If you ask what's their name, they will write you a love letter. If you ask where are they from, they will write you a love poem. It made me feel like that they didn't really read what I typed. Instead, all their replies are like a copied and pasted message. They like to pressure you to accept their feelings toward you, they like to propose to you, they will force you to start a relationship with them right away and said that the distance is not a problem for them and they are willing to travel around the world to find their love. It's so unrealistic and it's like a TV drama. Everyone will tell you, "they're hardly come online so let's chat from Yahoo Messenger or Kik or Viber or Skype or Facebook". If I tell them that I don't use any of those then they will encourage me to open an account with them and they are free or install those apps in my phone. Some tells you that "let's talk privately" or "this site is full of scammers so let's talk in other form of chat". Some even asked for my real/full name and my home/work address so they can send me flowers and chocolate.
Honestly speaking, it is quite annoying and irritating. The funny part is, sometimes you get messages from two different people who claimed that they live in a different state but they use the same picture. How funny is that?
I have made a lot of reports to Skout and finally I got banned. I can be careless with whether I get blocked or not. I just wanted Skout to aware of those activity so no one will get hurt. Obviously, Skout didn't care for my reports. I just wish people won't lose their hard earned money over those cold blooded scammers.
If anyone reads my review, please stay safe and don't believe what people tells you and never reveal your personal information and do not send money to anyone. If it sounds to good to be true then most likely, it's a scam.
None. If you are really bored then you can sign up to kill some time and have fun but I doubt you can because of those scammers. Scammers are very pushy and full of nonsense. They are like a virus.
Skout, if you don't care for the reports that people made then sooner or later your website will be flooded with full of scammers. I bet in the near future, the scammers will scam the scammers since there will be no real people on Skout.
