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 - 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 $$$??

0

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.

Skout - Banned, but profile is still up! Whats up with tha

0

Review:
Yeah yeah I did dumb things on there but I don't regret it that app was pretty lame anyways. I don't like that even thought I deleted pictures and info before getting banned, they are still up! So tell me skout why are they up when I took them down? How is it that i'm banned and can't log on for sh.. yet you have my account like it was just made? If that's how you people keep others thinking your app is heavily populated then thats wack!! Dont even bother with that crap man.

Pros:
You meet peeps

Cons:
You get banned for nothing, you cant delete only "deactivate" and even if you do your profile is there if you search deep enough. Some sh*t.

Skout - Skout - Questionable

0

Review:
I'm a very cautious person, so it's hard to trust either 1) Skout, or 2) most of the men on Skout (I'm sure the same can be said about some of the women too.) After being contacted by numerous men, it's funny how many of them are from one area. And then....just how many men can be widowed, with one child, and their poor wife died in a car accident, x many years ago. And...just how many lonely "contractors" are there out there. And then there's the "what's your yahoo id" business, "so we can chat better." Or "do you have skype" right after someone has said "hi how are you". I met a man that I thought was really nice, and chatted with him for quite awhile...but I am suspicious by nature, and can't find anything about him online...and I have searched everywhere. Asking him questions only gets "you don't trust me...why are you checking up on me"...etc, etc, etc.

Anyway...it's a great concept...but damn, filter out the riff raff

Pros:
Easy to use, easy to get "points" if you don't mind downloading a bunch of apps

Cons:
Too easy to sign up - no riff-raff filter....Be careful is all I can say.

Skout - Skout; where the perverts meet.

0

Review:
I pretty much agree with everything that has been said on here. This app is filled with low life weirdos and perverts that constantly harras you nonstop! You'd think that when you don't reply they'd get the hint, but no they keep at it and at it! I got frustrated by the amount of uneducated guys who couldn't take no and quit. Couldn't deal.

Pros:
Meeting new people.

Cons:
Usually a bunch of fakes, creeps, perverts, all around weird people.

Skout - GPS and scammers

0

Review:
Why does the GPS not work properly. It shows a lot of ppl 47 miles Bartsville, ok. That's not there locate. Many say in their profile that they are not locate in Bartlesville. I've meet some great ppl on here. But now in the search it's loaded with ppl that are 47 miles away. But they are not. What up with that?

Also I have had many woman that just have profiles on here to lure you. They want your Yahoo Messager user name. Then they send you to a link want your credit card no to watch them on cam.

I just don't understand this used to be such a great app / website.

Steve

Pros:
I've meet some great ppl but that was months / year ago. Now. All I get is ppl that don't live around me. Although it says they are.

Cons:
Bad locations detection GPS. An Scammers

Skout - Agree - hood rats

0

Review:
I am a woman that definately does not look her age, I get lots of dates. I met, face-to-face several guys in my area through skout. I agree with another reviewer nothing but hood rats. I am very attractive, fit, educated, well traveled with a professional job and all I have met are weirdos, perverts, morons, flakes and one guy who sexually assaulted me. I went to police they are working on the case. I reported the guy that assaulted me to skout through their support email as they direct in their safety info, I got an auto reply to my email the day after I sent it and 2 months later, zip back. Went and checked, guy still on skout. So much for their safety policy.

Because this is a free site and you can set up an account in two seconds it will attract more low lifes than a site with actual paying members.

Yes one can argue that well these flakes etc exists out there in real life, yes they do but with skout they are gathering in one area due to being free and easy to set up.


Pros:
Easy to locate people in your own area

Cons:
Attracks low quality people, no support and skout does not respond to information given regarding a dangerous user.

Review:
Wow, this site is straight outta Compton. If you're educated, have class and taste, have all of your teeth (gold ones don't count)...then don't bother. It's just s collection if hood rats.

Pros:
The concept is great.

Cons:
The people it attracts are very low quality. Worse than craigslist.
