SweetheartsConnection.com – Interesting Dating Scam

Here’s an interesting online scam. An anonymous friend, working in anti-spam, writes:

‘I’ve been covertly looking into rumours of a myspace scam and thought you might like to blog it – I don’t want to be attached to this in any way otherwise I’d write about it myself (I have a profile on there that I want to keep around in case other scams show up, but I don’t really want to advertise the profile).

It works like this:

You sign up for a myspace account and fill in your profile details. Then in a couple of days someone contacts you pretending they’re using their friend’s account because they haven’t signed up yet. They say something along the lines of “I saw your profile and thought you were cute, if you’re interested email me at (random)@yahoo”. If you email them, you get a reply back being all bubbly and cute, and a link to a web page that sort of looks like a “My First Homepage” – it even says “I’m taking a course at the community college in HTML”. There are pics on the page of a very cute girl, but at the bottom a teaser saucy picture in lingerie, and an Adult Pass signup to get more pics. Of course the signup is $40.

It’s a subtle scam, but definitely a scam. Here’s an example of the type of site you get sent to:

http://www.honesthost5mb.com/kristenssite/

Note the hosting service. Now delete the /kristenssite/ part and it looks legit, right? Until you click on a few links and realise they have nothing to sell.

Google has no knowledge of honesthost5mb – nobody links to them, so how did Kristen find them?

It’s indeed quite funny that there’s a terribly similar hosting service out there: http://www.jagflyhosting.com/ – yet for some reason all their links seem to work, and they have an accessible phone number. Shock. Horror!

I’m pretty sure the account being (ab)used on myspace is a stolen one – it looks pretty legit, including linked in friends and comments, so I’m suspecting a cracked password.

Anyway, thought you could blog this to warn others about it (feel free to advertise the above link – though I guess that’ll ruin the whole “google doesn’t know” thing ;-) I wish I had the guts to sign up for the extra pics to see what you end up with!’

They also passed on the email content, noting ‘here’s the email sent from yahoo webmail from an AOL account (sadly AOL proxies all web content so I can’t track it any further than New York proxies)’:

Hi [redacted] ! Hey you found me! I was a little worried you wouldn’t be able to :P so, how are you? I’m ok.. I’m sneaking a email in at work before my boss comes back in, so sorry if it’s a little short! I promise to write more later :)

So I promised you some pics:P well I will have to send you some of me when I get home (don’t have the pics here at work). In the meantime you can check out my personal homepage. It’s kind of playground while I’m taking this intro to HTML class, kind of like my blog page. Here is the link: http://www.honesthost5mb.com/kristenssite It’s not much yet but it’s getting there. hehe

So tell me more about yourself, are you a work to live or live to work kinda person? What are you looking for in a girl? Do you like myspace? I think I’ll make a profile soon, it’s free right? and you can add your own HTML? That would be cool.. So how is your 2006 going? Mine is ok, one thing I’m excited about though is that today is exactly 1 week before my birthday. Hey, maybe if we hit it off, we can go on a first date on my birthday, that would be really cool. :)

Anyways, enough with the 20 questions right? oh, I prefer to chat on IM, its more personal you know? Do you have AIM? im kriskat224 on there, msg me sometime ok?

Well I should log off and get some work done.. Write back soon! and take care!

xoxo ~ Kristen

Sure enough, a little further research on Google yields the following examples…

The earliest is this story at Jiveworld.net, of 2004-05-24, noting:

Aaron recently received an e-mail from someone he supposedly chatted with on Match.com:

Aaron: I had actually been chatting with someone I might have met there a LONG time ago. I couldn’t remember, so I gave her the benefit of the doubt. I thought it was SPAM, but hey, even my own e-mails sounds like SPAM sometimes. She sent me a picture in her e-mail, but the mail service she was using didn’t like it. So she sent me the link to her “website.” It initially seemed like a real personal web space until the big ADULT BUREAU logo appeared. Oh yes, very legitimate.

This was a unique experience for me since someone actually wrote a tailored response to my e-mail, responding to specific things I had mentioned. Even though the bulk of the e-mail seemed form generated, this had to have been a time intensive process for damn near no return. Well, after the ADULT thing, I thought my response to her e-mail was inventive. Since I haven’t received another response, it’s obvious she (Or he) took the hint.

Another: a thread at FordPower.net, 2004-09-24, with a link to http://www.4mbwickedweb.com/sites/melissa/ (since expired);

Another: a Fark thread posting, 2005-01-28, scroll down to the posting of ‘2005-01-28 10:42:28 AM’ by ‘XavierCrutch’, linking to http://www.stepstonehost.com/jesshomepage/ (since expired);

Another: this weblog post, scroll down to March 13, 2005, ‘Personal ads and the great porn conspiracy’, where the poster is snared, via IM with AIM user natkat224 this time, and is sent another link to a site using http://adultbureau.sweetheartsconnection.com/ to collect the $40 fee;

Another: another weblog post, 2005-10-28.

A google search for the AIM username ‘natkat224’ reveals plenty more hits.

So here’s a list of the sites found from those links, and via google, so far:

The common host, at all stages, is ‘SWEETHEARTSCONNECTION.COM’, registered to

INTERTRANS TRADING OVERSEAS LIMITED
VASILEOS OTHONOS 21, FANEROMENIX COMPLEX, OFFICE 102, 6030 LARNACA
N/A
N/A, CA N/A
CY

lots more detail here. SweetheartsConnection.com has terms and conditions that appear to prohibit spamming — but it turns out that they themselves have a pretty scary entry at RipoffReport.com, anyway, noting:

If you want a free LIFE TIME PASSWORD with Adult Bureau.. you have to apply for a 1 month membership @$39.95 to Sweetheartsconnection.com A DATING SERIVCE ….. charge appears as IT INTERNET SERVICES.

No matter if you request cancellation of service this company will continue to bill you ” it gets better ” then send you to there home made collection company ” Secure debt collections, ” two companies in one both fraud

Phony Notices will be sent to the home demanding final payment of a service NEVER USED. They will contact you, try intimidate you into paying a Balance of $200.00 (Sweetheartsconnecton.com automatically rebills your credit card every month @$39.95.

eek.

This weblog post, of 2005-10-28. is shaping up to be the canonical support group for victims of this scam; worth reading the comments there.

Quite a scam, and interesting to note the “personal touch” via email and IM.

    Got one in Akron:

    New name – Alyssa Zimmerman, from fling.com. I see the repeated Park Bench fantasy thing here as well.

    hi there ! Thanks for the message, I was excited to hear from you. So what are you doing today? I will probably just relax at home tonight and watch some tv, but hopefully, I’ll have other plans? wink, wink hehe. I have to admit that the Fling dating site is very, um, interesting. When I noticed how much fun my girlfriend was having with her new ‘Boyfriend’ I wanted to have some of the same fun so I figured why not give it a shot. Normally I would never haha So, heres a little more about me. I am a very sexual and open person and would love to find the same. lets see… I love oral, giving and receiving. Love to 69 :) I have a lot of fantasies that I would like to pursue, will have to get to know me better for all those hehe but A fantasy I have, which i am really excited to try is on a private park bench (or similar) in the middle of the night where I know no one is around but there is still that small chance that someone can catch us. Well, thats about all for now, if you want to know anymore feel free to ask! I promised you some pictures so I’ve attached it. I also have my homepage, http://www.hostwebdot.net/alyssashomepage/ Its not much, kind of a work in progress that my sister is helping me out with. Write me back and maybe we can make arrangements to meet and get to know each other better? If thats too fast I am willing to chat some more before meetings too :) I’m excited to hear back from you. ~ Alyssa

    Lauryn appeared in MA (SinglesNet) today: Using “allyouwant413” screen name this time, also she uses a pornstar pic in her profile! (one of many benefits of watching porn online is that you can spot a fake pic in women’s profiles!!! LOL!)

    On June 18, “Jeff said” commented that there was a scam-teaser in Ackron named Alyssa Zimmerman with the homepage: http://www.hostwebdot.net/alyssashomepage/

    If you want to see her picture galleries, 9 listed in all, they can be found here: http://www.hostwebdot.net/alyssashomepage/protected/index_1.html

    Aside from that, the website that so many of the links go to is also known as: http://www.steamyaction4u.com/ , which was supposedly put together by some chick named Cory. But you’ve probably seen it by now so you know the rest of her BS schtick. I gotta wonder just how many web addresses link to this same website. Anyone know?

    Another funny item is that here in the West/Central Georgia area, there are a BUNCH of chicks named “Gina” advertising on Craigslist under the various catagories where women are supposedly looking for men (women4men or w4m). All these different “Ginas” are different ages and lots of different pictures with multiple variations of the same copied and pasted come-on messages. Just out of curiosity I emailed 1 that was supposedly a hot little 26yo brunette. Here’s her reply:

    Subject: I’d love to meet you? From: [email protected] Sent: Sat 7/12/08 6:39 PM Reply-to: [email protected]

    Hello again! Yeah I am definitely interested. I mean like I said before, I’ve been working a ton recently. Overtime kills haha. It doesn’t help the social life either. Have to work during the day, but should be available at nights. I’m new to town so trying to be more social. If you want to set something up you should get in touch with me soon!! So, if you’re interested I have more pics online at http://www.steamyaction4u.com/sweetcaress , along with my phone number. Just look for my username ‘sweetcaress’ inside the site, and all my info is there …. You have to register to see my phone number, but it should only take like 30 seconds to register, so it’s no big deal… As I said, won’t be in during the day, but hopefully later tonight or tomorrow possibly..? Never know the exact time, but I’m usually online late at night. There are coffee shops near my place where we can talk if things go well. Let’s see what you think. hope to hear from you :) kisses! Gina

    Yeah RIGHT! “it should only take like 30 seconds to register, so it’s no big deal…”, yeah, and at a cost of how much? No thanks! Those vultures aren’t getting anywhere near my credit cards. Besides, I can chat in person with any number of lovely ladies in the neighborhood, park or grocery store that I want and for FREE!

    You guys take care and good (and financially safe) hunting.

    Just as an additional thought guys, a suggestion for anyone that has the time and know-how. How about the idea of a website being put together that’s a collection of the names, webpage addresses, email addresses and photos (faces only of course, and maybe some carefully cropped highly distinguishable tattoos) being used by these scammers; and having it set up so it’s highly searchable so it comes up first or almost first when someone does a search on any of the text info. As I said, just an idea.

    Hey, this is crazy, I started to fall for “Alyssa homepage” scam, I actually gave them my cc info and I was looking deeper into the page, I decided to google the website “hostwebdot.net” and found this site….wow I am amazed, I immediately canceled my subscription and erased all of those sites off my bookmarks. Thanks for this site you saved me…..I really appreciate it…A lesson learned,I will be more careful next time.

    I just got an email from ” Shirley on myspace,” 1st Message: Hello there! Have you always been this sexy, or did you have to work at it

    I’m writing you because my mom is interested in chatting with you. She’s single and would like to unwind with a witty, outgoing guy. We saw your page and really liked what we read. She’s trying online dating after having BAD experiences with blind dates and after picking up many players in bars. She’s sick of head games and being with liars. Enough with the pissy stuff! On with the sweet things… My mom is awesome cool, she loves itunes, working out, swimming, shopping, travelling and dancing.

    You should write to her and ask her to send you pictures because she is pretty. Just don’t reply directly to this message ?I do NOT want to see anything that will send me to therapy. Please send your reply to her e-mail address at [email protected]

    Sayonara! So I emailed the momsy! And here is the 2nd email Hello Lewis! So how are things? I cant believe you actually you wrote back! LoL I wasn’t sure if you would be into it but I am glad I did now ;) I’m Marie btw.

    So here’s my story… I’m forty something and I am the mother of 2 girls. One is in her 20’s and the other late teens. They are the light of my life, all three of us are best friends! Sometimes I get in trouble though, they both get pissed at me cause sometimes guys that they bring home end up flirting with me. Actually they have gotten used to it and just laugh about it now. Many times they will warn their boyfriend that I am a “MILF” lol.. what a funny phrase that is.

    Anyways I have been single for some time now and I’ve decided (ok, ok my daughters are kinda pushing me into it too lol) to go out and look for some boy toys (and hopefully come up with a real man eventually). lol. Sounds so nice to say it. I was in a miserable relationship for way too long, and now it is my turn to have some fun. I figure, I am still young and have alot to offer!

    I have my page my youngest helped me make that you can check out so that you can decide if I am ‘MILF’ enough for you (LOL). http://www.redseahosting.com/marieshomepage/ I had a blast taking those pics, and believe it or not, some of them were taken from my oldest. Like I said she is in-cahoots with me in my quest. I guess her point is to get my attention away from her boyfriends, so shes trying to get me to meet my own. :)

    Well, let me know what you think. I am a very busy but when I do get a chance to have a good time, it really turns out being a “GOOD TIME!”.

    So take care, and hope to hear from you soon…

    Marie “No one can be” Wilder

    So you go to the site. It has hot pictures of a MILF but the catch is scroll down and it says you can join Age Registry for free to see 340 more of her pics and so you fill out your info then BAM!! straight to the credit card site. It’s a good scam cause she or he had me convinced till I saw the credit card. I emailed her again to what her response is so I will post that again. New place scam is in North Carolina now!!

Well I can’t believe it’s Monday already. Only 4 days to go until the weekend LOL! So What are you doing this week? Want to do something maybe Wednesday? That is hump day ya know..j/k! Well I hope to hear back from you because I could really go for a little bit of spice in my life, if you know what I mean so we need to chat soon. Well, ok, here are my pics again, but remember don’t show them to anyone! http://jenny.communityspots.net Well I have to get back to work, but get ahold of me on my pics page if you want to talk sometime.

    Jenny smiles

    She is getting back to work looking for the next potential victim.

    It would be great if some hacker hacked these sites to allow people to go right to the pictures. LOL

    Here is one from Michigan. I got an myspace message saying that Marie was using her daughters computer and wanted to get back into the dating scene. She left a gmail address, so I thought wtf. I emailed her and like the Paul a few notes above received this:

    Seems Myspace is full of idiots. I’m going to report the profile for spaming…who knows the origin. I did not follow the link to Maries site because it was suspicious from beginning when she called me “Mac.

    Here is another scam, a little different: Hey! It’s Mary. You messaged me a while back on myspace. I hope that you still remember me. I could not contact you before because I got involved with someone. That didnt work out well at all so I am happy to say that I am single again. =) My profile isn’t active anymore, but I still remember reading yours. You seemed like my type, and I recall us having a few things in common. If you remember, I’m a down to earth girl, I try to be open, honest & upfront about everyhting, and I love to have a good time. My friends tell me that I’m pretty blunt, but I figure that’s the best way to be. Dont you think? I think that most often, relationships are for the wrong reasons, and then… all that is left at the end are bitter feelings. I’m not that type at all. I’m open, honest and very confident of myself (but I am not a stuck up bitch, lol). I don’t totally remember seeing your photo, so if you have one, send it my way. I have some of me that I can send as well and I also have my homepage with pics http://g2fm.com/maryspage/ So now that I am freshly single I decided to write you back. I kept your email addy all this time. (wasn’t that special of me? ;)) I would love to maybe get together, or at least chat to see how far we can take this.That will give us a chance to get better aquainted with each other. I guess that is if you find me attractive or not. I’m sure that you won’t be dissapointed though ;) I am so excited about the possiblilty of the two of us! I think that I’ll stop now since this is getting pretty long. lol Talk to you soon! xxx Mary

    hi !!!! not to sound like a dork but I am so excited you wrote back :) I dont have much time to reply since I’m at work and they get pissy if they see us using personal email but I just wanted to let you know I got your message and will write back later. I dont remember if I told you but I am not on myspace anymore, I have this blog page here instead: http://2mbwebspace.com/465756/ it should get you atleast a little updated on me, will write more later! *kiss ~Lisa & http://5mbweb.com/57214/

  18. Posted March 10, 2009 at 21:12 | Permalink

    Lisa is still at it. Had me going at first because I had talked to a Lisa on MySpace that looked a lot like her. The part that got me wondering though was why the email said lisa from aff but the email was sent to the email account I USED on MySpace ~6 months ago. (I use a diff email address at each site so I can track where it really came from.) Spam was hiting that server so hard it was crashing hourly! Anyway I got the same reply as John. The really funny bit was I only turned that email account back on hours before. Lord knows how many have bounced while I had the server set to refuse.

    Yeah, I had the same thing happen to me, twice. The girls, who look suspiciously hot, ask you to send them an e-mail. Then they ask you to go to this site. Happened to me twice. I sent an e-mail to the first “girl” asking here why this provided more safety (this was their reason for asking me to apply to this ‘cyberage.com’ thing), haven’t gotten a response from her yet. Like many of you fellows, I met these girls or whoever they are on an online dating site. After receiving several messages after only one day of being on the site as a non-paying member (most very attractive women) I was excited and plopped down the 25 bucks for membership. Alas, looks like I fooled myself with my own desires…Let this be a lesson to all others. You should probably never pay for online dating, it’ll most likely end up with a scam or prostitution attempt. In addition to this, a lot of girls were trying to get me to join this camclub thing. I don’t know, it’s all pretty messed up. I’m sorry that I even started doing this, even for kicks.

    I think that the trend is that if a hot looking woman replies to you on a dating site, it’s guaranteed to be a scam. This is an email I just received from Jordan:

    “Hi Xxxx, Thanks for getting back to me. How are things going with u? Pretty good here ;) I haven’t had very much luck with that site. I assume you read my profile, I think it pretty much summed up what I’m looking for. A little more about me.. I’m a very open minded person thant loves to laugh and have fun. My sex life has been terrible lately and placing my ad on the dating site was my last attempt to fill this “void”. As far as sex goes, I love to try new things. Also, if there is anything at all that you would like to try.. please don’t be shy, just let me know :) All I ask is that you keep things on a “discreet” level. I’m excited to meet you and get things going. How do you feel about getting together tonight? If day time “fun” works better for you, thats fine too. My schedule is really flexible. I’ve tried one other “dating” site in the past and I’ve ran into some guys that aren’t serious about meeting or are just playing games..I’m not into that at all. I have a friend that put her personal info on a private page in order to “weed” out the “game players” from the real guys. It seemed to really work out well for her, so I went ahead and did the same thing. The link to view my information is http://www.naughtylocal.com/jordan00 my user name there is jordan00. My phone number is there, along with a few new sexy pics..I hope u enjoy them ;) Also, when we do talk..I would prefer it if you called me. I had a couple problems in the past calling men from these sites and I’m trying to aviod any drama. I’m sorry to sound so skeptical but I’m just trying to protect myself. Anyway, if you can’t tonight, maybe we can meet up tomorrow or Monday? We can work out the details when we talk. I’m hoping this sounds good..and I look forward to talking with you! Call me, Jordan”

    Of course clicking on that link does not get you Jordan but a series of introductory pages to Deprived Women Club. But, before you join, you need a CyberAge ID from CyberAge.com. And CyberAge.com shows up with a red flag from McAfee advisor, in other words, a potentially dangerous site. I did not follow any links further as I had the suspicion this was a scam and an internet search revealed many entries about these sites and scams.

    ~~Sara this time Looked too good to be true so i did my research before plonking my money and im sad that its fake but happy that i saved my hard earned money~~

    Hi sweetheart. I’m so glad you replied to me here. I’d rather not do numbers yet, sorry. But I would love to meet up with you and see what we can stir up ;). Seriusly, I really want to have some fun soon honey. So let’s skip any B.S. and get to it! What do you say? In fact, are you doing anything tonight? We should meet up! If you are free let me know soon! If not, let me know your availability and we will make this happen soon enough. For now, will you do me a huge favor and go to my site? It is the coolest site ever! It’s very safe and secure so I am able to put all my pics on there and even a few videos you might enjoy ;). Oh also, there is a chat thing on there that has video! It actually will double check your validity so to speak too. There are a lot of freaks on the internet these days. Gotta be as careful as possible when meeting people. And from now on, this is the only way I will meet people.

    Emailed this girl, Sara, on adultfriendfinder. She replied telling me I was cute, so I relied saying thanks. Then, she replied saign ‘lets speed this up’ so I emailed ‘her’? from my email address. Then I got this (from the email address [email protected])
