Tinder Date (Sales Scam?)

Postby diakka » 24 Oct 2015, 17:57

I met a girl on Tinder today who asked if I wanted to go in half/half on some Ugo brand facial cleanser. She claimed that she bought some for herself and that was it was bundled with a men's version. I suspect that this was a cam and before I met her, told her that we could talk about it when we meet for coffee. When we met, she was nice enough to talk to and we chatted for about a half hour. I told her that I was not familiar with the brand and that I would research it and get back to her, but also reminded her that I had only agreed to discuss it, but not to buy. After we left, she said that she had bought it because I expressed interest and that I didn't refuse her when she said she was going to place the order. She also claims that she used her rent money to buy it. I'm pretty sure that this is a scam to sell me some overpriced products, but just wanted to know if anyone else has encountered this type of thing.

Is anyone familiar with this brand? is it some kind of MLM ripoff?

Hugo is a brand I'm familiar with. Ugo? No. :saywhat:

On a first date, she's trying to sell you something to clean your face? :hand:

And she spent her rent money on something to clean her face? :liar: Did she say a lot of other stupid shit during your 30-minute chat? :ponder:

You should call her and tell her that you'd like to meet again for coffee, but you're not interested in buying any Ugo products. If she refuses to meet just for coffee, she's a witch.

You sound incredibly desperate, dude. :2cents:
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

LOL

Tell her that you use Tinder, a fast dating/fuck application for doing the obvious, and that for meeting her you have spent the last penny you had for this month... so you guys have to fuck, otherwise she just wasting your time and money.

That's one of the stranger stories I've heard on Tinder.

Ask her to meet you at the Wego love motel in order to exchange money for the product.
