Sugar Daddy Dating Sites Scams #1: The Fake Site Scam

The Fake Site Scam is a site related type of sugar daddy dating sites scam. It is a fairly common scam in the world of sugar daddy dating sites and is usually aimed at newcomers who are not experienced enough to recognize scams. This scam involves a site that is presenting itself as a successful sugar daddy dating site (but that is, in fact, a site comprised entirely of fake members) in order to lure in new members, get their credit card information, and steal money from them. These sites never have any intention of ever connecting sugar daddies or sugar babies with each other.

How To Identify

The Fake Site Scam can be hard to identify if you do not know what you are looking for and can be especially hard to avoid if you are new to the world of sugar daddy dating sites. Since you are reading this right now though, you should have no problem steering clear of this particular scam. When you are looking for ways to identify a Fake Site Scam, these are the most easily identifiable red flags you should watch out for:

  • Every Member Looks Too Good To Be True: Yes, you will encounter many gorgeous women on sugar daddy dating sites, but do not let that fool you. Real sugar daddy dating sites will always have some ugly women too (they join with high hopes), but fake sites will only be full of fake profiles with images pulled off of Google image searches. In fact, you can even check that by doing reverse image searches on Google (we will get into this in one of the other scams below).
  • Messages Don’t Make Sense: Because the sugar daddy dating sites like these are using fake profiles, you will often get messages that do not really make a whole lot of sense. This is because the messages are coming from computer bots and not real women.

How To Avoid

If you think that a site you are visiting might be a scam, the best thing you can do is to move on to one of the many other sugar daddy dating sites out there. If you have already joined the site and given them your credit card information, the best thing you can do is to call your credit card company and cancel your card as soon as possible.

What Else Can You Do?

If you really want to take some initiative and put in the work to make sure other men do not fall victim to the sugar daddy dating sites in question, there are a few things you can do. One, you can write a review that will let other men doing research on the site know what the real situation is. Two, you can report the site to online scam reporting sites, again so that men doing research on the site in question can find out what to expect.

Sugar Daddy Dating Sites Scams #2: The Spam Scam

The Spam Scam is another one of the site related types of sugar daddy dating sites scams. This type of scam is generally more annoying than it is harmful. The site itself could be real or fake, but their main goal is to collect your personal information in order to sell it to third parties who will then spam you via various methods (email, postal mail, social media, etc.).

How To Identify

Unfortunately, the Spam Scam is the hardest to identify of all the sugar daddy dating sites scams. However, it is also, as we mentioned, the least damaging. So, at the end of the day, if one of these sugar daddy dating sites scams had to be the hardest to identify, it could have been much worse than the Spam Scam. With this scam, you will not be able to tell until after you have already been scammed. This is the only way you will know:

  • You Receive Spam: Spam is not new to the internet, so if you are getting online spam it does not necessarily mean it is coming from scammy sugar daddy dating sites. The one way you may know that you have been scammed by one of the sugar daddy dating sites out there is that the spam you are receiving is related to sugar daddy dating. If you are receiving spam that is related to dating, women, sex, etc. then chances are you have been scammed by sugar daddy dating sites.

How To Avoid

The best way to avoid the Spam Scam is to do your research! By “do your research” of course we mean that you should be reading sugar daddy dating sites reviews before joining any of the sugar daddy dating sites out there. We have plenty here on our site that you could look at. If you have already been scammed, then the only thing you can do is get a new email address. This will not stop any social media or postal mail, but chances are you will only receive spam in your email inbox anyway.

What Else Can You Do?

Same as with the Fake Site Scam, there are a few things you can do if you really want to make sure other men are safe from these sugar daddy dating sites scams. One, you add your own personal review to a sugar daddy dating review site (such as our own!) that will let other men looking up the site know what to expect. Two, you can report them to online scam reporting sites, hoping that other men will find that report before they find the site in question.

Sugar Daddy Dating Sites Scams #3: The Identity Theft Scam

The Identity Theft Scam is a member related type of sugar daddy dating sites scam. This means that the scam is coming from a specific member within a site and not from the site itself. You will find this kind of scam even on the most legitimate of sugar daddy dating sites. The goal of the scammers running this type of scam is to gain the trust of sugar daddy dating sites members and to get enough information out of them that they are able to steal their identity. A stolen identity is one of the most difficult situations to deal with, both personally and financially, so this is definitely one scam you do not want to get tangled up in.

How To Identify

Identity Theft Scams are can be hard to identify if the scammer is very good at it, but more often than not they are not quite as slick as they think they are. If you know what to look for, however, you should have no problem either way. Here are the best ways to tell that you are dealing with an Identity Theft Scam:

  • Profile Photo Looks Too Good To Be True: With the Identity Theft scam, the scam artist will always use a fake photo for their profile. This is because most often these members are not really sugar babies and are usually not even women. Even those that are younger women will still use a fake photo in order to protect their own personal identity from those they are trying to scam.
  • Speak In Broken English: Identity Theft Scams are most often based in foreign countries. They may try to claim that they are working or on vacation, but you will often be able to tell they are lying because they will talk to you in a dialect that is not quite proper English. If you are exchanging messages with a foreign sugar baby profile and they are responding in broken English and English fragments, chances are they are a scammer.

How To Avoid

If you suspect that you are dealing with a Identity Theft Scam, there are a few things you can do. The most helpful tool you have is the reverse Google image search. Since scammers have to use a fake photo for their profile, you can most often catch them in their lie by finding out who their photo is really of. All you have to do is save their profile photo and upload it to the Google image search. It will bring up any pages online where that particular photo is located and you will be able to see if the photo is of someone different than who the sugar baby is claiming to be.

What Else Can You Do?

Besides avoiding the sugar baby profile in question, you can also report it to whichever of the sugar daddy dating sites that you are on. Any decent sugar daddy dating site will have ‘Report’ buttons located on member profiles or, at the very least, have ways that you can contact their support team to do this.

Sugar Daddy Dating Sites Scams #4: The Needy Sugar Baby Scam

The Needy Sugar Baby Scam is another one of the member related sugar daddy dating sites scams. It is the most common type of scam that exists on sugar daddy dating sites and, unfortunately, because it is member related and not site related it can exist even on the most legitimate sugar daddy dating sites online. This scam involves sugar daddies being targeted by scam artists hiding behind fake sugar baby profiles in an attempt to steal money by claiming they are in dire need of financial help.

How To Identify

Needy Sugar Baby Scams are fairly easy to identify as long as you are somewhat savvy about the internet and your finances. They are even easier to identify once you know what red flags to look for. So, without further ado, here are the most easily identifiable warning signs of a Needy Sugar Baby Scam:

  • Ask For Money: The biggest and most obvious sign that someone is trying to run this scam on you is that they will ask you for money. Some of the most common reasons for this request are: sudden injuries or illnesses, hospital bills, visa or travel troubles, problems with employment or income, family needs, victim of a crime such as robbery or identity theft, and general financial setbacks.
  • Located In Foreign Country: Needy Sugar Baby Scams are also most often based in foreign countries. Those who are trying to run this type of scam will often claim to be based in same country or area as you and say that they are currently working or travelling overseas.
  • Profile Photo Looks Too Good To Be True: With the Needy Sugar Baby scam, the scam artist will always use a fake photo, as they do not want anyone to be able to identify them while (or after) they are scamming them. As we have mentioned before, you will come across an enormous amount of truly beautiful sugar babies on sugar daddy dating sites, but you should still keep an eye out for photos that look too good to be true. If a photo looks like it is out of a magazine, or if a photo looks too familiar (like it could be a minor celebrity or famous personality), or even if a photo just looks off to you for any reason, it may very well be a fake profile photo.
  • Overly Invested In The Connection Or Professes Love: Some scammers will try to hurry along the bonding processes by expressing their sudden feelings of love or their intense attraction to you. This is more often used when a scammer is desperate for money. Many sugar daddies are put off by this behaviour, but if the scammer targets enough men then they will usually hit at least one very desperate one who will fall for the love game.

How To Avoid

The best way to avoid being had by the Needy Sugar Baby Scam is to simply never give money to anyone you meet on sugar daddy dating sites. Aside from that, as we mentioned before, you can always reverse Google image any search profile photos that you think are suspicious in order to determine if the sugar baby you are talking to is the real deal or not.

What Else Can You Do?

Same as the information we gave you with the Identity Theft Scam, if you encounter someone on sugar daddy dating sites who is trying to scam you, you can report them to the site itself. Their customer service and technical teams will check out the profile in question and shut it down so that they cannot try to scam any other sugar daddies.
