A fake profile pretends to be a real person. It wants to lure you to JOYclub and lure you to dubious, paid offers. They are also interested in your e-mail address and other personal data, which is often passed on to third parties. Here we inform you about fakes, how you can recognize them and how you can report them to our support.
How can I recognize a fake?
Fake profiles usually contain a sympathetic-looking picture and filled-in text modules. At the latest in the reply club mail the lady points out that she is
- unfortunately she can't write in JOYclub because she doesn't have a paid membership (whereas she would only have to verify herself as real to be able to write to you for free),
- gets too many requests but has no time to answer them all (except yours, of course),
- promises you private pictures and a deeper personal contact if you contact her e-mail address or phone number,
- prefers to use another dating platform and suggests to you that everything is easier there.
If the ClubMail then refers to another website or asks for your email address, it is most likely a fake.
Beware of such letters: Examples from practice
(We have made phone numbers, addresses, etc. unrecognizable in the following by "xxxx".)
Am looking for a hot affair and you ?! Am still on the road, but want to write ? W _ A pp? (O I63 , - XXX - 44_ 566 ) Best regards Linn.
Hey you, thank you. I don't feel comfortable here and don't want to stay here. You can find me on xxxxx18 under my username xxxxx38. I am looking forward to meet you, LG, Franzi.
Hello, after my previous experiences I had to overcome myself to register again.
Unfortunately, I now have the impression that I will never find anyone suitable here. There are just too many men after me and most of them rather spammers, fakes and men who seem to annoy every woman just out of curiosity. But I want only one, the right one and that does not work here. On the advice of my girlfriend I have now registered on xxxxx. n e t. I will be there tonight. Would be nice if I could meet there under better conditions, because serious, discreet and all people who are really looking for someone - no fakes, no spammers, a niche just for us. I would be very happy to meet there and even more if it then sparks between us. Dear kiss, see you later, Your Karin.

Do not give personal data to strangers
We would like to warn you at this point not to give out personal data - including your e-mail address or telephone number - to strangers.
