Dating secrets review
After several days, the chat pop-ups stopped arriving from women and started arriving (almost, but not quite) exclusively from women (more on this site and others in the family later), as evidenced by both the physical appearances of the women and the chat links, which were to pages in the domain.
For some reason, the women started addressing their messages to "Not" rather than to "Michael", presumably because I had previously registered an account "Not Real", although I'm not sure how that account/name became linked to the "Michael Michaelson" account.
I also can't fail to mention that after the first photograph in each letter, it costs ten credits to open each photograph, and that, surprise, surprise, many (around 50%) of the letters "Michael" received contained more than one photograph.
To give you an idea of the frequency of the letters, around 60 letters arrived within the first nine days - about 6.5 letters per day.
Within 24 hours, the letters began accumulating in "Michael's" inbox.
Again, most of the women in the photographs looked like professional models.
To check that this wasn't some strange anomaly, on 5 July 2014 I created another fake account, "John Smith", aged 88 (the maximum age it is possible to set for men on asiandate.com), with profile description ("A Few Words About Yourself") set to "I am an old and decrepit man with terminal cancer and absolutely no money. As with "Michael"'s account, I provided no photographs.
", "honey, I want to have a castle with you,just you and me,will you want to be my prince? Those just don't ring true to me as the type of thing a genuine woman seeking lasting love would say to a seventy year old man she'd never met before, especially absent a photograph or any other identifying details.
I'll summarise the results of the fake profile first.
On 27 June 2014, I registered a fake profile, leaving all details unset other than name, age and profile description ("A Few Words About Yourself"), which I set (respectively) to "Michael Michaelson", 70, and "I'm just here to check whether this site is a scam. Notice that "Michael" explicitly requested only scammers to message him.
Otherwise, read on for the build-up to that evidence. They never stopped, only increasing in frequency over the following few days.
The vast majority of the "women" (I quote that word only because it is entirely possible that behind any of these messages was a man) messaging "Michael" sported profile pictures that looked professionally photographed, and most of the ladies could even have passed for professional models - in all likelihood, many if not most of these images were of professional models.

In any case, the frequency of the pop-ups didn't abate - if anything, it increased.
