“I was once a horny 18 year old who just moved to a new city for college and I knew nobody. Through one of those pop ups, I found a hookup site that was something cheap like $3 a month.
I signed up for the free account and got some messages, but to reply, I needed to be a paying member. I put $10 on a prepaid Visa card so that if I got scammed, it was ONLY for $10. The one month I had the account, I got no messages.
The day my month expired, I got 7 messages from different girls who would be way out my league if they were real. Not being stupid enough to fall for it again, I closed my account. $3 spent to learn that those websites are bullshit is a fairly cheap lesson.”
