The majority of people on Pure are awesome. However, we live in the real world and in the real world some people suck, unfortunately.
In our case, the most common ways that people suck on Pure are:
Scam Artists: when in private chat someone might try to trick you by saying that you can only have a meetup if you apply for special clearance (also known as Online Verification System), or for extra money, or they can even pretend member of our support team unfortunately, it happens quite a lot.
Another popular scam is to ask you to buy iTunes cards at a corner store before going up to an apartment. Please don't do this... you'll be asked for the redemption code and after giving it, you won't hear back from your date.
Blackmailing: some people might try to extort money from you for images or videos that you share or that they record while you interact with them. So be mindful of that and don't send photos or do anything on Skype or WhatsApp for example, that would cause you great embarrassment if it got out. You must take responsibility for your own actions.
Camgirls: these girls will suggest that you chat with them on kik, WhatsApp or other members-only sites and will propose to give you a private show, chat session, etc. for money.
Prostitutes, sugar babies and escorts (offering "services" for money) and others...
Just to be clear, after joining Pure whether it be on a trial or paid subscription, NO FURTHER FINANCIAL transactions are necessary. No money is to be exchanged and there's nothing to be purchased like "special clearance" or whatever the scam of the day is.
On Pure, we provide a platform where you can remain totally anonymous. If you choose to continue communicating with a match off Pure, you should consider using a Google voice phone number or a new gmail account. Some people even report not exchanging names when they meet. It's up to you to decide what level of anonymity you choose to keep.
Pure is for adults and you must take responsibility for your own actions. So please use common sense like you would anywhere, don’t freely give out your credit card details or other personal information if you are unsure of the person you are chatting with.
In the coming months we will be putting additional systems in place that we hope will greatly reduce the number of scammers on the app.
But for now, we rely on our community members to help report such activities. There is a thumbs down icon at the top of a chat session that can be used or a scammer’s photo can be deleted (x’d) and commented upon.
We work hard to build a community of like minded people at Pure and aim to help our members to have the very best experiences.
