Tinder may be the hot new dating app for regular folks and beauty queens, but it's not without flaws.
Cybersecurity company Symantec revealed in a blog post earlier this month that it had come across fake Tinder profiles, which spam people and direct them to an apparent porn site designed to take their money.

The "girl" that Symantec chatted with sent a shortened link to a webcam site.
Trust us it works, follow us Twitter: @chillwith HOLLAInstagram: @holla.world Snapchat: @holla.world Start matching! That content is then sent to the moderators who each say whether the item or profile should be “deleted,” “left alone” or “can’t tell.” People are likely less skeptical of profiles they see on Tinder, since most of the information on someone's profile (name, photos, etc.) come directly from Facebook. You choose a username, use a fake photo you found on the Internet, make up fake information about yourself, and you're all set.In order to make a fake Tinder profile, one first has to make a fake Facebook profile with a fake name and fake photos. According to the blog post, the fake accounts only chat with you if you chat them first.Once they start chatting, many of them have similar scripts.
If you don't read the fine print you won't realize that you'll automatically get charged almost $80 if you don't cancel your account quickly enough.
