Ashley Madison Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Ashley Madison, or The Ashley Madison Agency, is a Canadian online dating service and social networking service marketed to people who are married or in relationships. It was founded in 2002 by Darren J. Morgenstern, with the slogan "Life is short. Have an affair". The name comes from two popular female names in North America, "Ashley" and "Madison".
According to Annalee Newitz, editor-in-chief of Gizmodo, who has analyzed the 2015 leaked data, Ashley Madison had over 70,000 bots sending fake female messages to male users. She had previously released an analysis purporting to show that only a minuscule proportion (12,000 out of 5.5 million) registered female accounts were used on a regular basis, but she has subsequently disavowed this analysis, saying that from the data released there is no way of determining how many women actually used the service. Newitz noted a clause in the terms of service which states that "many profiles are for 'amusement only'".
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Where do I begin? A very high staff turn around. I would not recommend this place to anyone. This is not a place to be for long as they are too busy fighting a lawsuit and are cutting a lot of staff. Do not work here! The end!"
Jay says"AshleyMadison is full of scammers! It's very unsafe. You can have people stalking you, exposing your correspondence, ruining your reputation. If you want an affair and you want to keep it secret, try Seek4Her.com It's a better option. It's safer because it's not so well-known and they control their platform: they ban dodgy users so scammers don't run rampant there like they do on AshleyMadison. AshleyMadison managers are greedy. I think they are up to their necks in this scam, otherwise I don't know why they never ban profiles of blackmailers and con artists. All my reports were ignored. All scammers are still there "working" with their new victims."
toni tonight says"Do not join this site it costs about £10 a message and all you get is onlyfans girls and and girls that wants to build up their followers on Instagram. Thats my experience anyways."
Nedim OZKAN says"Mostly fake accounts, when your credits are about the finish, then send you u a fake user e-mail and force you to buy more credits, Just be careful if you pay with bank, credit card and paypal account, they still charge you without your permission. That means you approve them to charge you any time. They never answer your mails and no answer to your phones, So so bad. keep away..."
Stewart Smalls says"Fakes and bots are used to make you deplete credits. Con artists make money by blackmailing and ruining your reputation. Either way, AM is dangerous and useless. My experience with AshleyMadison was horrendous. After wasting tons of credits I hooked up a real woman but she turned out to be a con artist and an experienced blackmailer. She nearly ruined my life. Don't play with fire guys!"
Frank harrisson says"This site is NOTHING but a SCAM. Don't waste your money on these low life scumbags that run this site. If you don't believe me, then waste your money like I did."
Red Baron says"ok. So here is the deal. I have hooked 2 times with AM. But I have to say this has been after spending countless hours and credits on trying to find genuine profile. A lot of people has said about fake profiles - which is not news. But the real news is - how AM blocks communication when real members respond back to your requests. And they are extremely smart at this. I have received email alerts from AM notifying me that some member has responded back to my message. When i go to AM to see the message there is nothing !! Not only nothing - but the entire conversation thread is gone !! its like I have never contacted that person at all !! This has not happened once - but countless times - there had been times when I had been able to open a message through sheer luck as I had been online when the member replied back to me -- everytime I was successful to see the message I handwrite the contact details in case they have provided one - and thats how I was successful to hook - by sheer luck n timing. This whole website has been built on one single premise - to stop you from ever hooking up - so that you will mindlessly spend your hard earned money to send messages to fake bots without ever getting the real thing"
Davey says"Scammy, lots of favorites from models whose pics were apparently taken from a stock photo library and who happen to live 500+ miles from you. The presumably "real" women don't have photos (understandable) but they also all seem to be 50+ lbs overweight and like any other dating site you have about a 10-20% chance of getting a reply from your carefully thought out first message. I wanted to try it out, spent $60 and realized 10 messages later that I had almost blown my wad (money not otherwise) and had got nowhere. So plunk down another $60 or more? If I felt there was a chance of actually meeting someone who is normal and attractive I would invest but after a week I realized that the good reviews of this site are just as scammy as the site itself. I'm going back to trying to talk to soccer moms at my local Trader Js ;) My view? Save your money to take out a lady somewhere nice and you're more likely to get what you're looking for."
Kenneth D says"Plain scam at all levels: direct fraud from the site (they put you on recurring payments and make it a nightmare for you to cancel) and lots of con artists who try to scam you for money. Don't pay anyone upfront! Actually why do you have to pay for a date? Whether you want to have relationship or to get laid, don't engage with AM. It just doesn't work. They make you pay for nothing. They don't even ferret out scammers (why ban someone with sexy photos if she can attract more gullible clients?)"
Kurtish B says"Extremely expensive when guys have to pay to talk and women have it for free. This enables people to scam by pretending to be women or someone else. Mostly fake people on there, so guys spend real money to find out they are talking to fake people. Complete joke."
Roy B says"Don't bother wasting your money own this site. The women play the men for "credits" when they need additional money. While they are working you they are working 4-5 others at the same time and none of them are serious about you. It's only when they need "credits they have time for you. There's nothing to be had here but a loss of money if that's what your looking for. You won't find love or anything else but a scam!"
Simon B says"Genuinely the biggest con going. A waste of time and money unless you enjoy receiving fake messages from bots or being scammed but con artists. I’d rather take my chances on POF or use a site such as HUUSH - at least it doesn’t cost anything if I don’t meet anyone!"
TR says"They have bot computers send photos of attractive women that are interested in someone like me. The 168.99 was for one-time opportunity to get 500 credits to have actual chat and conversations with potential friends. I found out that each message would deduct 5 credits from the balance. After 340 credits I only had a few short seemingly real messages. Mostly asking how I was doing. The others were just automatic response messages to get a response. I was hit wit another recurring monthly charge of 29.99. I did not sign up to be ripped and waste my time, but that is what happened. I deleted my AM account after the last charge to my credit card. I believe a lot is handled by bots, but maybe 10% real women. The goal is to have as many messages from you as possible in order to have you buy more credits. I’ve had very few responses to my priority messages, and only two profile views. They asked me to send me my cell number to chat. That was a mistake. I was sent messages to access a foreign site. I left the site and forfeited 140 credits."
Fintan Recovery says"This site is full of scams very few genuine women. Avoid like the plague"
David Fameree says"Scams! Scams! They get women or robots to send hot Pictures and tell you you have to be online safe verified and send you address for a scam foreign website! Ripped me off $150 Men don’t fall for Ashley Madison!"
Trevor says"I checked back into AM after a year off, and it is the same scam - full of bots, phony one liner messages (sometimes identical) from “women” to get you to spend credits, and then no reply. I’ve had zero response to my priority messages, and very few profile views. I’m not stupid, this is the same route I passed through a year ago, and I’m getting out. This time, I followed advice I picked up by carefully writing a profile that hit the hot points; posted a shoulders down photo showing me, a fit 50 year old; included a couple of head and torso shots in my private photos. I’ve spent several hundred credits sending crafted messages to women in my target age group to no avail. I put it down to very few real women after pulling out the bots, and a ton of guys. Persistence may payoff, but I’ve got better places to cast my line. AVOID"
