I’m sure some of you have encountered users (both male and female) who have tried to lure you to text some kind of passcode, add them to messenger or vote of them in some bogus contest in exchange for a chat session or some pictures. These people are S C A M M E R S! Yes, scammers! ‘Cam girls’ are what they’re most commonly known by. They’re probably not even girls, and definitely not the cute ones in the photos.
Below are some examples of how they look and what they would usually say ….
Skout engineers are constantly coming up with ways to keep scammers out, but we can never be perfect. In the millions of legitimate messages our members exchange every day, there will be a few bad ones despite all our engineering.
If you have encountered any of them, I apologize because I know they could be a nuisance. If you haven’t yet, please make a mental note and do NOT not associate yourself with them! Do NOT do what they ask or you WILL get charged on your monthly phone bill! Your credit card number WILL be stolen, and Skout won’t be able to help. You don’t wanna be charged do you? I sure don’t.
So do your part to keep Skout safe, and don’t respond, REPORT!
1. Go to Report located on the top right of every chat box
2. Select This is spam or scam
3. Press Done
4. Wahhhh La! You just submitted a report! You will receive a pop up message that reads, Thanks for your report! It will be reviewed by our staff shortly.
So, help us make Skout a safe place by reporting them! Now that you’ve been warned go get your flirt on BUTTTT just be on the lookout.
