Thai woman issues dating site warning: All is not as it may seem

A Thai woman has gone to the police to say that someone created a fake profile in her name on a popular dating site. 

 

It contained an unsavory name and some suggestive ideas.

 

Wiphada Lijanporn or "Pang" who is a web master at a Khae Rai company in Bangkok  told the cops that late on Monday night she received a call from a man who had seen her picture and mobile number on Thaiflirting.com.

 

Pang said she had never gone on the site let alone created a profile there. 

 

She investigated and found out that someone had lifted her pictures from Facebook and created a profile in the English written name of Pangtoleamak1. 

 

She was listed as 27, living in Nonthaburi, interested in men aged 40-60 who likes to dress sexily. It was hoped that men would find her attractive. 

 

The cops contacted the tech experts on the force who discovered the website is based in Germany and efforts were made to have the profile removed. 

 

They said that people creating such profiles could face two months in jail and fines of 200,000 baht. 

 

Wiphada warned Thai women to be on the lookout for nasty people doing such things and to always report incidents like this.. 

 

INN did not report why she may have been targeted in this way.

 

Thaivisa notes that the term "toleamak" probably relates to Thai words (ตอแหลมาก torlae maak) that means "bull**** aplenty" or "serious liar" indicating that the victim may have been targeted by someone upset with her. 

 

Police are trying to find out who created the profile.

Hmmm.

I have never been on one of these sites that allows you to post your phone number in the profile or any place.

Numbers can be exchanged if you wish after contact is made on the site.

Just sayin.. Hope things get worked out.

Shouldn't this read "200,000 months in jail and fines of two baht"?

Good to know.

 

What's that got to do with my post?

Years ago there was a scam on some dating sites that were created in Thailand. Turns out that a guy (and his wife I think it was) were creating false profiles (similar to that mentioned in the OP) and then would converse with anyone that clicked on those profiles, pretending to be that "hot, sexy woman that likes fat old foreigners".

 

The scam was that the foreigners would have to pay for "premium" memberships in order to see more "intimate" pictures or get contact information or the ability to send/receive more messages (basically the same things that pretty much every dating website does minus the husband/wife imitating members bit).

 

Not sure how they were eventually caught but it didn't seem to change anything as it seems there are more dating sites popping up everyday, everywhere and I'm guessing that the most "attractive" profiles on them are also fake.

(Except for the girls that are in Pattaya and use those sites like an escort service. They are probably real.)

I have been on several of these sites over the years and often wonder.

Soon after I signed up and if you do not have the "premium pay" membership, very attractive girls send interest messages.  From there in order to communicate with them, you need the pay subscription.  I bet lots of guys jump it hoping to hook up with these girls.  But of course any response from these hotties never amounted to anything seems like simple responses almost computer generated.

 

PS:  I like your last comment about Pattaya very true which is not a bad thing. 🙂

It seems that you can tell which ones are "available" for P2P by their names as many of them have "foryou" in their usernames ("xxxxforyou") and under age preferences they list "Any" and "Any".

The profiles don't usually say much because I think they'd have to be deleted (in a hurry) if they actually said what they were doing or listed prices and such. I thought I saw someone I knew on one site a couple months ago (the "sister" of a friend of mine). Wasn't her but within seconds the person it was - was sending me messages even though I hadn't done anything other than click on her profile. 
(After seeing some of her other pics any thought of pursuing the matter further were long gone. I don't think I've been back to that site since then !)
