Skout

Meet New People in a Safe and Fun Way

It works like this.

You see a photo of someone nearby who, like you, is looking to meet up with other singles. They look good, so you check out the profile - Okay! A few good pictures and some more information about themselves. Interesting. So you send this person a chat message. Maybe a simple, "Hey" or "Hello." You haven't given up your name, phone number, or location. And when you two get to chatting? You're able to break the ice, find out a little more about each other, ease into talking about what you're both looking for.

If it turns out that you're both looking for the same thing? You can trade numbers. Talk on the phone. And possibly meet up.

Skout - Skout is full of scammers!

Review:
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.

Pros:
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.

Cons:
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.

Review:
I like all types of people. But tit seems that everyone who messages me on here is just out of prison,affiliated, or is looking for a cougar or sugar momma. Its fun to chat, haven't met anyone of relationship quality yet.

Pros:
If you are a decent looking woman it feeds your ego.

Cons:
See above.

Skout - Simplistic and violates privacy

1

Review:
I signed up for all of one day because I found that this program is a little too simple in that there are no useful options for setting the location of a search (or if there are, they're too hard to find, which is basically the same thing), and your location setting is extracted from your phone or pc hardware and can't be edited (or if it can, no one seems to know how). What this means is that when you sign on, your profile location is set (and displayed) as your current location, which is basically like having a tracking device on you that tells everyone exactly where you are. That's too much of a violation of my privacy for my taste. It also makes it impossible to look for people to chat with who live near you (as opposed to where you currently are) when you're traveling away from your local area. Skout can still be a good way to meet people but you have to consider its limitations and be careful about what information it broadcasts.

Also, I couldn't find any kind of reasonable help on either the phone app or website versions of Skout, so if you have any questions you have to rely on an internet search, which isn't much help at all.

Cons:
Not well documented/no instructions on how to use it.
No way to edit or set a permanent or default location.
Location displayed in your profile tracks your actual location and tells everyone where you are.
Search for other profiles is set by your current location, and can't be set to a different one (or to your home area if you're out of town).

Review:
This app is horrid. A bunch of lonely freaks using fake profiles telling you they love you theyll treat you right lets meet for coffee. Uh lets not then sometimes u block them and they come back with a new profile! Its unreal and its mostly just for entertainment. If you want a good laugh sign up if you want the real deal pay for eharmony.

Pros:
Its pretty funny

Cons:
Loser, creeps, stalkers, potential rapists

Nearly everyone on here is out to scam people. Men pretending they are soldiers in Afghanistan and contractors working in Ghana.

Their photos are of very good looking men but its not them Please Please dont fall for them Skout needs to look into this.

Review:
Well to start off, this app is fun to use when your bored and have nothing else to do with your life. Otherwise, this app is junk. I'm really young, I'm 19 years old and not only guys who are in their late twenties tries to talk to me. Most guys who actually approach me are about 25-40+. So many guys that talk to me are at least a good hundred miles away and always ask me for nude pictures. Guys literally will send pictures of their junk to me. Some guys act like little b*tches because I don't want to meet with them or trade with them. I don't want to get raped. Way too many foreign perverted guys, so far either from England, Africa, or India. Too many guys are perverts :/ I do not like this site. Like nearly every guy seems to think that every girl on this site is a slut or a cam girl.

Pros:
At least you can block those creeps

Cons:
Too many perverted idiots, and foreign perverts.

Skout - I wouldn't recommend this site to anyone

0

Review:
Ok. So if I'm to understand this right. Every gorgeous woman on this site is from Bartlesville, OK and live 210 miles away according to the profiles. They all type in broken English and for some reason or another state that they live in the US, but had to go back to Ghana or some other region of Africa. They tell you they love you after only chatting for about 5 minutes. Then, they claim that they have some kind of issue that ALL of them will ask for money. Unbelievable. Are you kidding me?!? I hope no one has fallen for this garbage. I wouldn't recommend this site to my dog. Good luck in finding happiness on that site.

Pros:
I haven't sent any money to the "girls" that have winked at me.
Also, they are nice looking pictures, but come on. Do they all look like models?!? I think not.

Cons:
Too many fakes.

Skout - Do not trust this site

0

Review:
This site was horrible. Lot of ""contractors", "engineers" or "constuctors" all saying the same thing. All want your email, yahoo id or phone number to chat better. I also had more pictures of penis's sent to me than I care to count. I don't know why men think that is the first thing women want to see. Horrible site will not recommend to anyone

Pros:
Good chat feature

Cons:
Can not trust any profile on there

Skout - Maybe worth the $$$??

Review:
I just started on Skout, and yes I have a "hood" handle above but I am an upstanding, suburban professional looking for a long term relationship. The nice thing is that you can chat with someone, the not great thing is that many look like they are from the hood.

I'll bet there are some really nice guys but I can see where the weirdo factor could come in, with such low filters. It is too easy to sign up.

From the women I have chatted with on OKCupid, Skout, Zoosk, all of them get pictures of junk from guys. And all kinds of sob stories. They seem to think that because they have no teeth and have been dumped 6 times, a woman will like the more. WTF?? Ignorant...

Pros:
Easy to sign up and chat with someone. Free.

Cons:
Attracts riff raff because it is free.
