Ok I'm confused.

Anyone ever heard of TooSpoiled.com? Neither have I, until just recently. I'm a member of a site called bangme.net (no. it is NOT a porn site).

It's a website that operates a lot like myspace, but with less features. You post a pic and a short profile, and people go around rating your pic and leave comments and such about you, and can also contact and make friends.

Well today I signed on and I got a bmail (bangme.com's e-mail service) from a guy who claims to be a talent scout from a site called TooSpoiled.com

I never heard of this place, but I continued to read anyway. He says he likes how I looks and wants me to sign up on the site to "model" and "get my face out there" for other companies seeking "talent" (modeling, TV, movies, ect). He even provided his Scout code so I'm able to sign up in the "exclusive members" section which is "invite only."

W...T...F...

This has to be a joke. No way could someone come out of the blue and say I'm model material. No ****ing way. I'm getting to the bottom of this.

I go on google and searched TooSpoiled.com first to see if the site itself is even legit. Surprisingly, it is. That was a big shock alone.

So I go into the website and look around at all these model pics and wonder "this still has to be a joke. That code is probably fake too."

I haven't attempted to sign up yet. This seems just a bit too farfetched. I'd prefer not to get into anything that I know little about.

What do you guys think? Should I go for it? If it sounds too good to be true, it usuaully is. But the site seems legit enough. ARG! I dunno what to do! >.<

Yeah... "tighten vagina", "chinese pussy"... maybe you're a victim of DNS poisoning/a modified HOSTS file? (assuming what you see at that site looks nothing like that)

And no, that was probably an automated message that was sent to you in an attempt to drive hits to their site. Move along, nothing to see here...

Yah, I get the same website as Kurt, and all I have to say is, where do I sign up? >_>. But seriously, are you sure bangme isn't a porn site? Lol @ black vagina.

On that note:

Ignore my above post, and instead take this one's advice:

sounds to me more like someone wants to stick his fingers inside you.

Go for it as long as they dont want your bank account information or anything similar ^^

And remember to do it on a public PC in case of trojan infections XD

I think a trojan infection is an infection at the bottom of his worry list right now.

lmao

Question though. Why even consider an unknown site that is trying to pull you in because "they like the way you look"?

Yeah, that trojan is a fairly small concern for you. Check it out, but if they want any kind of investment from you tell them to go fist themselves.

No offense (seriously, no offense)

But I woulndn't consider you "modelling" material. So chances are it's fake.

I think it wouldn't hurt to sign up and check it out, but I wouldn't give them any address information if they ask for it. Just to be on the safe side.

None taken. I actually agree with you.

Well dispite my better judgement, I looked further into the site. Turns out the website itself is legit. However, when I went to the "scout" section, I couldn't look up anyone by name or code.

So I'm just going to rule out that this is just random advertisement for their site and not bother with it. If I'm ever going to do something like this, I'd prefer being scouted in person. Not from a website.
