Yes please do not give out any bank information to anyone. Use the square cash app or PayPal it is a lot safer. Also make sure you know who your talking to is a real person and not a fake. Ask for certain pictures in a certain way so u know they just took it. Be carful out here loves there is a lot of creeps that like to go on these things. But we have to keep hopes for the real one :)

Oh my God yes yes yes yes I've never actually been scammed but I've had plenty plenti try to scam me my best advice is do your research and if something sounds too good to be true nine times out of 10 it is when communicating be firm in the things you're saying off top so they will know they're not messing with a rookie who they can get over on and smile while at it

The better the relationship the more your appreciated... your not free to anyone nor anybody's toy! Your an attractive young woman and no man would ever disagree with that! Dont throw yourself out there be quizzing and ask questions;) ... scammers try to persuade you not seduce you;) it depends on how strong you are as a woman to either fall in it or not:*

My advice to the other sugar babies is NEVER just give your banking information over the internet or period even when the so called "sugar daddy" says he going to send you money. Also never meet someone in a private place my advice would be maybe a nice dinner it's balance and allows you to communicate to see if you have any shared interest and to see if you both can come to a mutual understanding.

SO many timewasters and scammers... look girls/boys, if their profile isn’t finished they’re suspicious right away. Obviously please do not give out any bank details, just use paypal, it’s easier. If they say they don’t have paypal and aren’t willing to make one, just move onto the next daddy. They’re probably wasting your valuable time. And most importantly they don’t have to be trying to get your money to be a scammer! Time scammers exist way more - they just want your time in chat in exchange for nothing! And I don’t mean they should pay before you even chat... I mean unreasonable amounts of chatting and every time you bring up the subject of an arrangement they just want to keep up the small talk like it’s tinder. Go back to OKCupid if you’re not a real daddy!

Many times, I always ask for financial allowance beforehand to get trust!!! It’s so dangerous doing things like this online, since there are so many different people in this community that have different ideas, so stay safe and do not send any explicit pictures, or any personal information about yourself unless you KNOW they’re most definitely real!

I almost just got scammed he asked me if I've ever had a sugar daddy before then asked me what bank I use so ladies be careful. There are a lot of guys that a pretending on her so just be mindful of that. Don't give out your bank information or your personal information unless you really know the person and are comfortable with them but even then use caution

I️ have met a scammer that wanted my bank account information in order to transfer me money. I️ declined this persons requests and was telling them that I️ was not interested in giving out valuable information. Since this person was much older than me they tried conniving me with false information, telling me that their banking system doesn’t allow them to use PayPal or CashApp. I️ believe the best approach to use is to be extremely careful and protective over your valuable information. It is great to be comfortable with someone and be able to share this information, but never do it as soon as you meet them or until you fully trust them.

I've dealt with a scammer... as soon as I figured it out and started asking him questions about why he needed all my info he got super mad asking why I'm asking questions about his money so i asked to talk to his accountant... he called from a google # i dont think so... so i pointed it our and he then started threatening me and my family... just glad he didnt have any of my real info

Always be aware, dont allow yourself to be scammed. Be on the look out and know what seems a bit odd, your instincts always tell you what’s best, listen to them. Don’t ignore what you truly feel. Never give out your personal information and feel out the person you’re talking to, never give in first make sure you guys speak about your weekly/monthly payment and how it’ll be done with the amount it’ll be.

2017-11-15 16:30:24

Sugar Baby / 24

I was scammed within the first week of having this. It doesn't make sense to me how real human beings can be so messed up to jeopardize someone's lives via bank account. I was new to this and super vulnerable, now regretting I didn't read these answers before doing anything. I got the classic "$600 a week allowance for pictures and videos, I don't trust banking apps so I need your bank information for mobile deposits" story and totally fell for it. Fake checks, which could have gotten me in a lot of trouble but thankfully it worked out and I didn't lost anything. My advice is to just take a step back and analyze whether it's a sketchy situation or not, don't let the money cloud your judgement! 😚

2017-11-15 19:41:07

Sugar Baby / 18

Yes everytime someone post something. There is always those scammers. The people that are scammers will always ask for you to promise stuff. Like buy them a gift card. Or a card so they can put money in it. Or someone hacked their account and the only way is a check or a bank account. It’s pretty stupid and make sure you pay attention. Also make sure you don’t stick with one sugar daddy.

2017-11-15 21:19:08

Sugar Baby / 32

Don’t ever give out financial information. Not under any circumstance. No address, nothing. If they want to scam you it becomes obvious very quickly, just be aware and if it doesn’t feel right. It’s just a matter of following your gut. Also if they don’t have any information in their profile and are very vague about themselves that’s a huge red flag also.

2017-11-16 07:28:00

Sugar Baby / 19

There is a lot of scammers on here. My best advice would be not to give out your personal bank information. The only thing they should need it your account number and bank routing number. If they can’t use that then PayPal or Cashapp is the best alternative. Be careful !! Don’t let nobody try to scam you !!! They will try and when they do block them and keep on pushing !!!!

2017-11-16 09:11:36

Sugar Baby / 19

Never send before receiving, rrust your gut, dnt do anything that seems odd or that makes you uncomfortable. Its ohkay to ask questions because if its real they wont mind answering. If you do get scammed block and move on to the next but keep in mind everything that happened it was a lesson. Dont let them bully you into anything with promises, see the profit first.

2017-11-16 10:24:15

Sugar Baby / 27

There are many different type of scammers. There are people who just want nudes and promise cash for it but don’t follow through. There are people who plan to meet you but send you to the wrong place. My suggestion is that you engage in conversation first. Show them that they can trust you and that you are not all money hungry (guys hate that). Set a small financial commitment (PayPal 20$) and go from there. I’ve also started meeting people in public places instead of at their homes to prevent being sent to the wrong place so if you meet at a coffee shop then at least you can buy yourself a coffee and not look like you’re being stood up.

2017-11-16 13:32:39

Sugar Baby / 19

I have met scammers on sites like this. My recommendation for dealing with them is to ask if they have a safe money transferring account, I use Venmo and PayPal. The men I’ve met on here sugar coat things and try to ask for your bank account information. I immediately delete, report, or block them. I’ve never given my bank account information or actual location.

2017-11-16 14:29:47

Sugar Baby / 18

I have dealt with men attempting to get my bank information to deposit checks, he was asking for my username and password. He kept telling me to trust him and told me I didn't trust him for not allowing it. He always brought it back to me not trusting him. I did not know how to respond or keep him from persisting. I just want these girls to look for potential risks and be careful with info you give away.

2017-11-16 14:38:15

Sugar Baby / 19

If you so much as think he's scamming you be careful. One way I've learned is when they ask for all of your account info. Also if you catch them in a lie. Another thing is to get an account with PayPal or something similar so you don't have to go through a bank. Get your allowance before giving them what they want so you know that they are being honest

2017-11-16 17:37:22

Sugar Baby / 19

The way know that someone is a scammer is if they don't accept pay Pal. They insist on using a credit or debit account. Be careful with these types as they could be hackers and figure out the password to your bank account or something. Don't send nudes or sleep with someone until you know for sure that they are real/will give you an allowance. Stay safe xx

2017-11-16 19:29:21

Sugar Baby / 21

I have never really been scanned. I am usually a good judge of character. If someone isn't being genuine I can always feel it, and I go back into my shell. This is tricky to deal with being you do want to make sure you're not being too garded.. and open to what comes your way. But, do trust your instincts. That feeling you get when something is off? Trust it.

2017-11-16 22:00:07

Sugar Baby / 22

I have come across many scammers. The way that I can weed through them is if they are upfront about their expectations, but this does not mean they are asking for nudes, videos, voice recordings. They are up front about spending time together. Traveling. What they would like to do, where you would meet, allowance, what type of sugar relationship would best benefit the both of you. Etc.

2017-11-17 00:52:59

Sugar Baby / 26

As a sugar baby I have come across a few scammers, a lot will deman photos and videos.. most will sweet talk you like they’d never scam you, some only have a few photos of non, will have a sob story. A lot I have run into ask for direct banking info, passwords for online banking so they can link their account... I don’t ever give them that, once you tell them you won’t give online banking they almost always stop responding or take offence. Never I’ve any banking info! :)

2017-11-17 05:23:15

Sugar Baby / 29

Biggest advice for this website, screenshot the conversation and report it . There are so many types of scammers and many babies don't even know. Personally I feel like a man that wants a relationship with a sugarbaby, and he doesn't want to play the role of a sugar daddy. I feel like he is the scammer because why is he on this website. So that's just a different type of scam that I see here myself

2017-11-17 11:45:21

Sugar Baby / 20

I always give a "test" of sorts. If they want any nudes or explicit conversations from me they need to pay some type of tribute. Doesn't even have to be much but it's a test in itself. Remeber we aren't prostitutes but sugars if he can't buy you a 100 braclet no way would he be able to afford an allowance for you! One guy used me and that was the only lesson I needed. Please please please use PayPal or cash app you guys!!!

2017-11-17 16:01:09

Sugar Baby / 26

I would say 8/10 are scammers but just be persistent and never send nudes etc for free. Ask for a small gift for them to prove they are serious and if they say no they're either using you or are a scammer so block them and move on to the next! It can be tough to spot if someone has the right intentions but over time it becomes easier just be vary and don't send anything for free x

2017-11-17 20:52:42

Sugar Baby / 25

I have run into plenty of scammers on here. If someone asks you for your mobile banking account information such as your username and password they are definitely trying to scam you. There is no real they can’t you something like PayPal or another app. If I come across something like this I just usually block them right away. No point in wasting time.

2017-11-18 04:22:06

Sugar Baby / 18

ohhhhh, yes! this site is full of scammers! most of the men that ive encounterd are very demanding for my bank information m! it sucks that they are willing to go this far to reccieve money! there are plenty of sites for men to get money from others if they need it ! dont take from those looking for help themselves, its very selfish and mean! please beware

2017-11-18 07:38:30

Sugar Baby / 28

I have only been on Sudy for a couple of days, however I have already had the shock of trying to be scammed. It's a little mind blowing that people assume that you are so naive as to just throw all of your information out there. I was told by a gentleman that he would love to provide for me financially and that he hated using cash apps such at PayPal because HE had been scammed before. I just kindly ignored him, and the following day seen his page was deleted. I am happy it wasn't a more difficult situation. Be careful ladies!

2017-11-18 09:26:56

Sugar Baby / 25

Yes! This is the worst. They don’t have very good grammar that’s the best way to spot them out. & also they ask questions that are almost irrelevant. I always like to know peoples intentions from the start to know if it’s a good match or not. So far i have been able to weed out the good ones and the not so great ones. Never give your information to someone who seems fishy. paypal or nothing. because with the cash app because they can scam their money back!

2017-11-18 09:28:57

Sugar Baby / 23

It’s easy to spot a scammer. They usually only have one profile picture and have really bad grammar and their messages. A lot of scammers will give you their phone number or email and sometimes kik, so you can talk to them off of the site. This would be completely unnecessary since you can send messages back-and-forth in the app itself. When reading messages read them aloud and slow so you’ll be able to tell if it makes sense to you. Also a telltale sign is in their first message they will say that they are ready to make you their sugarbaby. If they say that, nine times out of 10 they are fake because they don’t even know you yet.

2017-11-18 13:29:19

Sugar Baby / 23

Scammers pretty much just seem to be a part of life anymore these days. But I would say if it seems too good to be true it probably is. And if they get really sketchy while communicating with you trust your gut, it probably isn’t just nerves. I agree with other girls, ask for your allowance or something else small, know that sugar daddy’s will sugar you. If they aren’t willing to do that much don’t give them anything because they’re probably just using you.

2017-11-18 14:34:35

Sugar Baby / 23

There are plenty of scammers out there and I have not only met some on here but as well on my other personal sites I always suggest to never give out personal information until you’ve gotten to know the person your talking to I have certain questions I will ask to weed out scammers it’s also very helpful I would also like to suggest to not give in to the men offering money but tell you they can’t do it via cash app or PayPal because that there throws many red flags

2017-11-18 15:40:20

Sugar Baby / 21

I have met a few scammers on a few different apps. I find the easiest and fastest why to tell is when their profile is incomplete or blank. Also, if and when you get into a conversation and they reply with bad grammer or broken english after their profile saying they're from North America and white, you know that stuff's a lie. Never give out bank info, never give out personal info, only PAYPAL or other money receiving apps. If they make excuses after saying they will send money (like they couldnt get away from office or store was not open) probably a scam too. Paypal exists. You don't need to go anywhere but to your computer or phone. Stay safe ladies!!

2017-11-18 16:40:59

Sugar Baby / 23

Scammers are everywhere! Pretty much anyone who instantly gives you contact information is most likely a scammer! Ask questions that take some time to answer, and about things someone in there field would really only be able to answer! Ultimately I say go with your gut, if something seems sketchy is probably is! The human intuition is an amazing thing!

Im shy but i woulsnt mind trying it at lease once. But that might be just me. Im very new to being a sugar baby. Any advice would be very helpful. Where what when how? Any advice is fine at all. Im getting the understanding sugaring is a lifestyle and if i was lucky enough tofind a sugar daddy i was honestly hapoy withthat would be ny all time dream.

Sugar Baby / 40

Scammers often will use the same verbiage. I was on another sugar daddy site and it became super easy to spot them. The messages were almost always the same. Word for word. To me, it’s the ones who actually seem genuine and have you going for awhile. The ones that speak good English. Lol I have yet to meet or hear from an actual SD. I’m wondering at this point if they even exist.

2017-11-18 20:26:11

Sugar Baby / 26

Yes, I’ve had so say send me your bank account information and I can wire you money now for anything you need. I tend to block the first sign of someone trying to send me money the first time we speak. It should be common sense not to give out banking information to anyone over the internet. Safety tip if they don’t want to meet and only want something online probably are frauds/ scammers.

2017-11-19 11:35:20

Sugar Baby / 19

Well guys who say online only i have usually rub into were scammers they would ask for nudes and ur card numbers or bank account numbers like first no one does anything online without a payment first thats why i would highly recommend meeting face to face but make sure the guy isn’t sketchy or anything scammers get blocked and deleted out of ny phone honestly the worst time wasters

2017-11-19 17:07:06

Sugar Baby / 18

Make sure to check how much information they have filled in, more than 3 photos, and their description filled in. If they are all professional photos, it is not very likely It is them! They date they joined the site is also a good place to look when trying to avoid fakers. If they are newly made, that is an extra pointer if the person already seems very suspicious.

2017-11-19 18:05:53

Sugar Baby / 19

I have just joined the community and I have already had a man ask for my banking information because he's been "scammed on PayPal..." The only thing I could think to do was to tell him I wasn't interested and to report him. There will be a lot of people who will make offers, and you don't have to take every single one of them. Don't do anything you're not comfortable with, and never give away personal information!

2017-11-20 05:36:23

Sugar Baby / 19

From the first email, they seem too good to be true. They promise you everything – rent, car payment, a car, tuition, etc. Most SDs are that because they have succeeded in business and no matter how much $$ they have, most got it by making good business decisions, so the genuine SDs will take it slower and want to get to know you better. * Closely akin to the point above, a genuine SD will be concerned about you and your feelings and your comfort level. * Immediately start asking about sex, what you like, etc. Most likely, they are being controlled by the wrong head. Wait a few hours or a day or two – they will completely change their discussion topic or disappear altogether. * If they use guise of “I want us to be open” and then want to talk about sex and other intimate topics from the beginning. * If they pressure you to come to them for the initial meeting – especially immediately after you first make contact. It is usually best if the SD meets the SB in her town, simply for safety’s sake. An SD will understand this. He should be a gentleman at ALL times. There may be times when it makes more sense for the SB to go to him for the first meeting – it can happen. But he will be a gentleman about the arrangements

Recently i have met some Scammers , The way i find out if they are scammers or not is if i ask for a allowance off small things and they chose not to. When they are not willing to pay for anything then i know they are scammers and won’t help my needs but are being selfish and tryna only help and make themselves happy. Scammers suck and There is A few i ran across

2017-11-20 15:27:26

Sugar Baby / 39

Yes any proclaimed sugar daddy not willing to send payments via PayPal or moneygram are probably scamming you Never give out any personal bank info and don't go out and buy any Wal-Mart credit cards for 25 bucks with any promises funds will b applied If the sugar daddy is ligit he will agree to send funding however most convenient for you Ladies be careful don't b too trusting let them earn your trust by following thru

2017-11-21 03:28:06

Sugar Baby / 23

Don't give out personal or sensitive information. Paypal, money gram or cashapp. Less of a chance to be scammed. Or if you are near him, cash in person. If he can't do any of that he is scamming you. Dont do anything you aren't comfortable with cause most likely that feeling is instinct for you so the right thing and leave.also if he is offering large sums of money that seems to go to bed true don't do it.

2017-11-21 03:36:46

Sugar Baby / 23

I've been on here maybe a week and I've already met a scammer. He messaged me his phone number before I was even verified. Flag # 1. He wanted to start a relationship that day. Photos and texting only. Flag #2. The conversation was progressing too smoothly. Flag #3. And wanted to send money via check deposit. Flag #4. When I refused he stopped talking to me. Flag #5. Just block them and report them. There are bound to be scammers and there's really nothing you can do about it. I'm sure there are sugar baby scammers out there too. Just pay attention, don't give out your personal information and move on when you know it's a scam. Always be on the lookout for scammers.

2017-11-21 05:22:19

Sugar Baby / 19

Before anything you should ask for something small to show how serious they really are. You don’t want to be greedy but have to show if they are serious. Be careful not to sound rude when you ask. I have met many scammers who have allowed me to get emotionally invested however, didn’t hold up their end of the arrangement although, I held mine. Be careful :)

2017-11-21 13:38:57

Sugar Baby / 22

I have yet to come across someone who isn’t a scammer. 🙄 it’s so annoying. If they give you your number instantly and offer a set amount before even having an actual conversation with you, they are a scammer. Reporting does no good. Screen shots are your friend! Post them in moments to warn other sugar babies TRUST ME WE WILL NOT BE UPSET FOR THE HEADSUP. If you see someone who tried to run a scam on you commenting on another babies photo, let her know. Help a girl out! I’m sick of the fakes and starting to wonder if there is anyone REAL out there at all.
