Posted on April 1, 2016 | By Dating Critic | 5 responses
Summary Of The Scam:
- Gonnabang.com Openly Admits To Using "Fantasy Profiles"
- No Human Beings Are Sending You Emails
- Paid Contractors And Staff Are Used To Communicate With You Disguised As Female Members
- This Site Is Intended For Entertainment And For No Other Purposes
Gonnabang.com Openly Admits To Using "Fantasy Profiles":
Gonnabang.com openly admit and detail how they use "fantasy profiles" that they call "Online Flirts". They state that "Online Flirts" are used to "enhance your amusement experience and to stimulate you to use their site more extensively". What that actually means is that they are involved in fraud and are behind the creation of bogus member profiles of females. Female profiles are then used to bait and trap you into wanting to email and communicate with the made up "Online Flirts". Unfortunately unknown to you is the fact that you are interacting and trying to communicate with nothing more than computer software systems that are designed to imitate real people.
There is no difference between a legitimate female profile and one designed and created by the Gonna Bang staff. They both look like real member profiles. They all have the same type of information that you would find in both profiles. The only difference is that almost all of the profiles of women on this site are designed by Gonnabang.com and its staff and employees. They openly admit to the creation of bogus girls on their term page.
Taken from the terms page section i6:
"THIS SITE USES FANTASY PROFILES CALLED "ONLINE FLIRT®" In order to enhance your amusement experience, to stimulate you and others to use our Services more extensively, and to generally sprinkle some sparkle and excitement into the Services of GONNABANG.COM, we may post fictitious profiles…."
Automated Emails Sent To Their Members:
The first step in creating a fake dating site is to create virtual profiles which Gonna Bang has done. The second step is then they need to use these fake profiles to send out computer generated email communications to male members using their dating service.
All email communications sent from "virtual profiles" use automated computer scripts that simulate and pretend to be a real girl. The email communications sent from these intricate computer software programs using templates (something that can be used over and over) responses. The various emails have been created and then they are utilized to email messages to the thousands of people on their site. With a computer program you can make anything seem natural and lifelike. If by chance you do receive the emails from these automated computer systems it's very difficult to tell if they are real or not because the computer programmers behind these software programs spend thousands of hours perfecting their software to make it look like real humans are emailing and communicating with you.
The number one priority of using these automated scripts and computer systems is to bait and trap you into wanting to email the fictitious virtual profile back. You will then be asked to upgrade to a paid subscription and that's the main reason for these automated emails. The terms and conditions detail all of this.
Taken from the terms page section i6:
"we may post fictitious profiles, generate or respond to communications by means of automated programs or scripts that simulate or attempt to simulate your intercommunication with another real human being (though none really exists and any dialog is generated by programming)…"
Paid Contractors And Staff Are Used To Communicate With You Disguised As Female Members:
Another interesting fact is that GonnaBang.com has employees that are paid to interact and deceive you. These employees and paid contractors are responsible for talking to you, sending you emails and anything else that they are told to do. Their job is to trap you and bait you into buying one of their monthly membership packages.
In the terms and conditions page in the section 06 they openly discuss that they "employ and contract for the paid services" of real people. And they admit they are completely false and disingenuous.
If by chance you do end up interacting with real people on the site just remember they are probably receiving a paycheck as part of their employment to sit and send you emails, instant messages and lure you into falling for their deceptions.
Taken from the terms page section i6:
"…we may employ or contract for the paid services of real persons who may interact with you as part of their compensated employment. While these communications may seem genuine, authentic, and personal, they may be broadcast simultaneously to a large number of persons and possess none of these qualities. While their contents may appear to be true, they may be quite false; while their contents may appear to sincere, they may be quite disingenuous."
This Site Is Intended For Entertainment For No Other Purposes:
Everyone should always remember this is not a real dating site. Gonnabang.com states this site is "intended for entertainment and for no other purposes". You should take that as there way of telling you they're not offering you a legitimate dating service. The site is solely designed to "entertain" (something designed to amuse you like a clown) you. They do employ technical means such as software programs that are designed to simulate real people, never forget that. Once again this is not an authentic online dating service, this site is designed to entertain you. Their version of entertaining you means creating made up pretend female profiles that are used to market upgrading your membership.
Taken from the terms page section b1:
"GONNABANG.COM is intended and operated only for purposes of entertainment and fun and for no other purpose or purposes... in order to enhance your enjoyment of the time you spend with us, we will employ technical means to engage you in the simulation of flirting with and discovering other attractive people."

At the end of the day a dating service should be there to assist you to find real life people that you can meet in person. With Gonnabang.com it's very difficult since the entire site is built around fantasy profiles. There seems to be little benefit for real people in paying for the use of this dating site. You can make much better use of your time and money visiting real dating sites that have real women.
