Porn is free, I would never pay to watch a girl play with herself on web-cam ----- in my opinion it is worse than sad, but each to their own.  ;)

A lot of them are guys who don't have the courage to go out and actually see a escort.

I started out like them i was screwing a woman who had started doing webcamming. So when i was at home and she was on AW camming we would talk on Facebook about the guys in the room.

I used to look at the escort section but say no way. Then one day i plucked up the courage to make my first call to an escort..

I thought they lost more than 30% if they wanted to pull the cash from the system ------------- maybe one of the ladies could tell us.

Yep, AW knock 30% off when/if you cash out the credits. For webcam, 5% is deducted straight away (software handling fee), so it's actually 33.5%. Sometimes you see cam prices that are £1.51 per minute - it's someone a bit OCD that's calculated the price so they come out with exactly a quid a minute.

Of the four ways to cash out the money, the two card systems also take a % of it (but that's entirely separate to AW). The cheque doesn't take anything, and the bank transfer gets paid in euros, so there can be a bit of fluctuation between amount requested, and two weeks later when it's paid.

Apparently the webcam fee is pretty low compared to the sites that just do camming.

great thread. I think the best way to get rid of scammers is by us, the punters, exposing them, not putting any money into them etc.

if no money is there to be made they may well back off

in terms of what AW could do, people have made fair points that its there to make money. This is probabily one of their main sources of income so anything drastic is prob not gonna be on the cards. Small things that wont affect their flow of income is the best bet. It wont stop fakes but will decrease them and make it harder for them. If they need 5 confirmed feedbacks, plus verification, its not impossible to still cheat but it definitely puts up more barriers.

I dont see how anyone would get verified to be honest if they were a fake. That'd be some serious photoshopping skills.

The problem in my oppinion is people are looking for fool proof methods, which is aiming to high. making it more difficult will act as a deterent in my oppinion will decrease the number of fakes as its more hasstle to set up a fake account and then set up other fake accounts and also photoshop a pic of the girl with a message saying AW

I think that would be child's play to scammers. I've seen what appear to be networks of fakes giving each other feedback.

I keep confusing this thread with, "What could be done to rid the world of all evil," and other Blue Peter challenges.

ID Check ...
Showing Photos IDs with match to the PGs Picture before they are allowed to put PGs...

Raising the Barrier:
The one who put PGs, WebCam session need to have Phone Number displayed on their profiles. It serves several purposes:
-  People who create 100 something fake profiles will need to think twice if they need to pay daily maintenance fee to display the phone numbers. Moreover they need 100 something different phone number to be able to look real ..
- People who want to visit could call prior to their visits and look into PGs. before decide whether to pay a visit.

I believe if this is enforced it will reduce the number of fake profiles significantly. But it will beg another question.

Does  the AWs have a genuine interest to combat fake profile if they have benefited from it ????  Like many people have said the have no interest at all ...

Dunno which part of the uk you're posting from but there are regular rashes of fake IDs with phone nos in Scotland - must be a decent investment by the bigger criminal networks. Then (in Scotland, less so in London) there are many excellent girls that just do it part time to supplement the likes of a bar job (yes, it is true) and £1 a day is not money they spend when their spare income generator does well enough for free (especially through regular clients - much more workable probably in a city this size rather than with the London competition.)

Displayed ID photos matching galleries?? You must be kidding.  Would put off quite a few genuine ones and hell, it is easy enough for your sister to put up a genuine ID photo and private gallery and never reply to an escort booking.

Nice music Anth - your point being??

I've said ages ago that if there were a cost effective business plan to make AW fake free they would have the sense to take it.  All this stuff I've heard is about as good as asking the girls to swear on the bible or suggesting Tescos must give 5p to every shopkeeper they put out of business.

It seemed a good response to

My point was, as per the song, many people have laughed at something they considered a crazy notion and then been forced to eat their words.

If Adultwork looked at this forum and saw something here which they thought is actually ok to try. Cost effective and it thus made work much harder for the villains doing this. I would think it would be worth a chuckle at those villians expense.

You can say it will never happen but there is a reason why companies pay a lot of money to agencies to do questionnaires. 

or suggesting Tescos must give 5p to every shopkeeper they put out of business.
Tescos are not breaking the law though. What this topic is about is to stop criminals.

A good example of exactly what I am talking about. This time last month the whole notion of people downloading movies/games etc from P2P was one the companies just had to accept.

What they did was they went for the biggest; megaupload. What happened every other filehoster has basically shutdown or stopped sharing facilities in the last few weeks. The list is endless; Filesonic, Fileserve, Filejunkie etc.

And also a load of torrent sites have shut up shop permanently too. All because they went after one.

If I posted this would happen a month ago I would be carted off to the funny farm as it was so crazy a notion of the extent of what has happened.

The same will appy to AW if they go after one person.

Anth you seem to be comparing Apples with oranges, AW don't want the situation to change the way it is makes them loads of cash  :dash: why would they waste time chasing someone who made them loads of cash and got nothing themselves? in fact if they went after the scammers it is highly likely that it could backfire and they themselves be implicated in the matter, where as at present they simply delete the profile keep the credits and smile. Stop trying to solve a Problem that AW don't want to solve, that's like me trying to cure your addiction to Fat birds  :hi:

AW could say they are keeping the credits accrued from the PG as a fee for escort advertising or not allow a escort to put a PG up in the first place

As illustrated by my posts https://www.ukpunting.com/index.php?topic=420.msg91934#msg91934 and https://www.ukpunting.com/index.php?topic=420.msg91934#msg91934 they could scan profiles for duplicate telephone numbers of suspected profiles. They clearly don't, at least not before it's time to pay out those credits.  :sarcastic:

They did at one time block the use of duplicate numbers but that changed some while back now.

Recently I've viewed some profiles I'm also convinced are dodgy even though the images don't get feedback on T.E or G.I.R, but the image thing is easily circumvented and I get the feeling that dodgy operators are increasingly switching on to how people are tracking photos back to websites. Now a dodgy operation can simply take original photos and still con the punter big time when they arrive at the door. Or, scan a photo in a magazine or even photos of a scene on a TV (I've seen a few of those before, obvious due to the texture).

Possibly the best suggestion yet. Though of course, some new girls I've found will share a flat and a phone.


With escort population reaching 10.000 around 99 mile radius from London, with 50% fake profiles, 30% using two or more profile its becoming dust bin,
instead of just us rising money for them on checking those some fake PG , why those off shore money makers ( aw bosses ) no come up with an idea of charging advertises
some entry fee for creating profile . What do you guys think ? If they must pay lets say even 50 £ for entry profile instead of free junk that way can increase amount of real ones in my opinion or at least decrease fakes
