Many users from Consumeraffairs.com have reported being scammed or having another Mingle2 member attempt to scam them. One female user reported that another user posed as a military member away on leave and that he attempted to extract over $300 from her. Upon refusal, the woman reports that the offender claimed that she was the mother of his children and then began to send revealing images of himself to her via email and text message.
Another user reported a similar story about a man claiming to be a Marine Engineer stationed in Malaysia. The man asked for $5,000, but the other user refused and the supposed engineer promptly ended communication between them. Finally, one user reports that she has been trying to unsubscribe from Mingle2 for over two years, but the company refuses to unsubscribe her and will not process her complaints.
