Summary Of The Scam:
- This Site Creates Users Profiles
- Email And Instant Messages Sent From Computers Not Real Members
This Site Creates Users Profiles:
Just like 99% of the other dating scams that we have reported on, Douwant.me creates fictitious user profiles. The user profiles of girls that they make up include photos that are stolen or copied from other websites and then used to create the fictitious dating profiles.
These user profiles once created are then used to perform a multitude of different tasks. Some of these tasks include sending messages to real users such as yourself. These profiles are also used to send fictitious instant messages. The email messages and instant messages are sent through automated computer scripts and then used to email or instant message male members. If the male member tries to respond to any of the communications that they receive from these site fabricated fake profiles they are met with a message stating they need to purchase an upgraded membership in order to communicate back. It goes without saying there is absolutely no reason to upgrade since the messages that you would be receiving are completely automated and 100% fake.
Something else we should mention is that everything in these user profiles is completely fictitious. From the photographs to the description and any other types of other personal information has been completely fabricated. The bottom line is that you are not looking at a real profile in any aspect of the term, it is totally and 100% fraudulent!

Email And Instant Messages Sent From Computers Not Real Members:
As stated in the previous paragraph all messages we receive were computer generated. As a rule of thumb if you start to receive emails and instant messages shortly after registering on any dating sites that should serve as a huge red flag that the dating web site you are on is probably not legitimate. In the case of Douwant.me their terms and conditions reveal that they use computer generated messages. All the communications are sent using computer programming. The intent of using these computer generated communications is to deceive you into "participating further" aka paying for a monthly subscription to their services.
