I was hoping to speak to Mark at Swedish Beers, but once I got a seat I wasn't going anywhere! Funny thing was I was sitting by him at Mobile Monday but I digress.

I'm still using the service and still think it's great, but…

I keep seeing other people's conversations! And I'm not alone, all the fine young ladies I chat to keep telling me the same. It's kinda like you're half-logged in as someone else. I've reported it and added screengrabs but didn't receive a response and the issue hasn't gone away.

The other issue I have (and isn't really a fault of Flirto but should be something they're aware of) is that there's an awful lot of what appear to be scammers using the site. I think it was last Sunday when I had half a dozen 'girls' messaging me asking for my number or email or telling me to check out their webcam site with VIP pass. The numbers/emails thing might not seem suspect, but these were 'girls' that had issues with English, didn't have much of a profile and usually didn't have a picture.

Oh, and sometimes what they typed as an opener was generic (a quick Google found they sent the same message elsewhere and one search came up with a site wanting to install an .exe file!)

As some of you know, I enjoy playing about with scamsters and know most of their tricks, so it's kinda fun when they want to play. However, not everyone knows when they're being had – so maybe there should be the odd reminder message to users for what to look out for?

Yes – we were aware of the issues. Are you still getting them Anthony? there were some fixes on Friday….

And yes we know about the scammers too. They come from “overseas” if that's not too old-fashioned a term….We try to move fast to close them down. Interestingly if we were not on web as well as mobile we might not get the issue, sigh. Good idea to remind the community that they can report them.
