Hi folks. Your friendly giraffe mod Glenda here again. :) Yesterday we had another fake mistress (called Martina) trying to trap some users on our Chat system. Details can be found here, but they were basically trying to get Skype IDs, email addresses and photos of people's faces, These requests for personal information led to the user being banned with immediate effect.
While investigating them, I've also seen how some users are approaching new mistresses on the site. It's wonderful that you're welcoming new roleplayers - that's absolutely fine and encouraged. The more people we have roleplaying Mistress characters in our stories and games, the better. But when it comes to Mistresses claiming to offer real-life training, things get rather more concerning.
The idea of real-life training is very tempting for all of us. But it seems some of you are too willing to give out personal details to a complete stranger, who you know absolutely nothing about. That is extremely dangerous. Skype sessions can be recorded, for instance, so if they have videos of that and/or face photos of you, along with your contact details, they can really screw you over. Nobody here needs those details from you. So remember...
NEVER EVER give (or offer to give) personal information - e.g. email addresses, Skype IDs, phone numbers, face photos, etc - to a complete stranger you've only just met online. A genuine, professional and respectful real-life mistress will NEVER approach people on a site like this and ask for that kind of information.
