On they fight scammers in the following ways:

1. Country check.
Ok, we need to get user's IP to detect the country. First we look at X-Forwarded-For and Via: headers. If they are null or start with 192.168. or 10. - we skips this and move to REMOTE_ADDR parameters.

Then country lookup is performed. From our practice the best database is We use their services in real-time mode.

If country code resulted by country lookup belongs to a list of blacklisted countries - we redirect the user to our dating toplist

2. IP and email check agains scammers blacklist.
On we keep a blacklist of IPs and emails of all known scammers. The basement of this database was created as a mix of most popular scammers databases you can find here: scammers blacklist
In case user's IP or email matches - one is redirected to dating toplist Smile

The complete blacklist is available here: Scammers Blacklist

3. Profile and messages filter.
All fields user fills out in one's profile as well as all the messages one sends out are checks for a special keywords list.
The list contains typical words like money, investment, dollars etc.

How do you fight scammers?
