Well this one is a beauty. The site says right on it ‘real girl profile’, so i guess it must be legit ;-).
BP Flirt Girls is a get verified scam, that is common in the online dating world. This one ties it self to Back Page, and Cragislist. The implication is that the owner of the BP Flirt Girls site is spamming Back Page and Craigslist. This one signs you up for porn sites, at a cool $130.00 month if you’re not careful.
The Flirt Girls site has the same webpage design and code as other scams, such as the Safe and Single family of Get Verified scam websites. This site bpflirtgirls.com is the unfortunately all too typical get verified scam. The process of sign-up asks for a user name and an email, then on the next page you are to enter your credit card.
The set up
The scam starts when you get an email from “Patty Leahy”, she is interested in meeting you. I will spare the agony of the sloppy email for you, but suffice it to say it is littered with copy-paste remnants and difficult to read. Eventually, she gets around to telling you she wants you to get verified, and sends you a link to the Flirt Girls web site. BPFlirtgirls.com is registered anonymously.
BP Flirt Girls welcomes you to China
Sort of… BPFlirtGirls.com is not where you are typing your information. Thru use of a web programming command called IFrame, you are really typing you information in another website without your knowledge. Remember this IFrame command, it is important.
Here is how it works
Another website, trkdc.com is coded in bpflirtgirls.com. That code directs bpflirtgirls.com to display content from another site, in a rotating fashion.
trkdc.com (also Uetrk.com) is registered to Shifeng Huang, Cixi China. However, thru connecting his company, and site CPAFull Limited, Huang reports residence in London, England UK.
All of the sites I found in the rotation were sign-up/ billing sites for a branded porn site.
BPFlirtGirls.com is Hiding the Cost
BP Flirt Girls is hiding the cost by hiding the terms. By controlling the size of the Iframe you do not see the full disclosure on the billing site for the branded dating/porn company. This is what you see:
This is what you don’t see because the iFrame command is preventing you from seeing it.
Let me summarize that for you
- Free 2 day trial promo to Premier Passport; after that it bills at $39.95/month
- EroticDvdsOnline.com – 7 Days Free Trial, after that it bills at $39.94/month
- XXXHDVault.com – 10 Days Free Trial, after that it bills at fixed $49.95/month
That’s nearly $130.00 a month!
And remember, you don’t know these terms are there. Your first knowledge of the charge is likely to be when you get the credit card bill. By that time you have passed the “trial period”.
If you notice the green text “Terms and Conditions”. That in-fact is a hyperlink to a set of Terms and Conditions link. In this case, those T&C’s are referring to a company and laws of Cypress. There you can read the $39.95 / month billing. The other charges are not listed. I have to point out that it doesn’t really look like a hyperlink where you would find more information, so not sure anyone would know to click on it. The site holding the T&C’s has a pornographic name. I have a copy of it and the full web address. Not going to post it. No reason to go there.
The wet dream site is owned by a company in Cyprus, Gradient Limited. Registry is at the end. GRADIENTLTD.COM is registered anonymously. The company register in Cyprus lists the Director as Apostolos Eyagoroy (ΑΠΟΣΤΟΛΟΣ ΕΥΑΓΟΡΟΥ). Apostolos Eyagoroy is also the proud owner of Vannetklart Limited. Vannetklart is associated with a number of sites that have pornographic names.
Follow the Money – Flirt Girls
Now we see how they are making their money. They are signing you up to pornographic sites, hiding the cost, and when you find the bill on your credit card. No doubt the hope By clicking directly on the link inside the iframe, i was able to see the full site that I showed above. I went thru the rotation 7-8 times, each time it presented the same credit card entry, however it was to a different URL with a pornographic name.
No doubt the idea is to sneak a charge in on your credit card, and by the time you actually get it off, you are happy to have it stopped, and be done with the hassle, even if it cost $130. All of the sites, are front ends for a while label porn site. That is a single site, that has many entrepreneurial people set up a front end and URL, while behind the scenes the while label company does the billing, and collects the money. If you want to understand how these relationship are connected, and see how the money flows, read my blog post Get Verified: Tinder, Badoo, and Craigslist – Matrix of a Scam
No Happy Ending here
Your date “Patty Leahy” is just a few lines of code in the web page where this all started.
If by chance you happened to type in a credit card and find out later, it is difficult to get your money back. Information here is very scarce. What I have been able to find, is not good.
Of course you should never enter your credit card in one of these sites. Hopefully, what you can take away is to recognize the pattern early. No legitimate person is going to ask you to sign up to a website to verify yourself. As soon as that happens just move on.
If you got snagged in this kind of a scam
What you need to do is call your bank, and dispute the charges. I have no problem with you referring them to this article to back up your story. Any fraud investigator at a bank will be able to take the information I have posted here and verify if needed. Chances are the bank will just reverse the charge as deceptive or fraudulent, and that will be that. Except you also need to cancel your credit card. You cannot be sure who in Cyprus actually has your card.
On a happier note…

Recognizing an Online Dating Scammer
Here are some of the quick things to watch for on Craigslist, or any internet forum for that matter.
- Poor use of the English language (or what ever language is native to your location)
- The poster places quick contact information in the ad, such as phone number, email address, Kik ID, etc.
- Fake pictures – see my page on Tineye Search
- Lots of blank spaces between the end of the text and the bottom of the post (the bot has a bug that they don’t seem to care about)
- 2 pictures that are the same
- Cell phone numbers that are not from Retail Providers – See my Cell Phone Farmer post.
- Patterns – really, they use the same text over and over again.
- Over the top language – There are some real women on sites, the approach that a woman uses (even in casual hookups) is not likely to be like something from a porno flick.
For additional information, you can visit the FBI, which has additional behaviors of the typical scammer.
