The under age
And get a proof of your age and get the under age victims off and all the scams people
I like this idea. Or at least make it optional so if you do verify it will say so on your profile. I get hit up by young guys that I'd def be down for but I'm too afraid to answer because of the risk they're lying.
Yes - use credit card verification or ID verification before the person's profile can be approved.
Tony, I feel that the same thing is happening to me, person on the app showed 18, then got a text from the dad asking 2 options, to pay them that way, or to get the law involved, I just paid $200 and they’re asking for more to ‘change the phone number and deactivate the line’ I’m digging as much as I can to be able to not drop more money. Please help fix this!
I paid $1,800 as a result of a sextortion scam that started with an "18 " year old on Grindr. After I freaked and paid the "dad" to replace a broken computer to stop him and his wife from going authorities. I may be out another $1,200. They used Green Dot MoneyPak as the anonymous way to pay them. When you are threaten you react rather than think. It was only afterwards that I started Google searches and learned this is a worldwide scam. I feel so stupid. I dropped Grindr.
Do not make it an option to hide age... Make sure age is verified and mandatory show it publicly... No one needs catfish saying they are younger or older than they are and cause a waste of time and efforts...
