All the dating sites are scams. World wide every year they scam ppl out of millions if not billions and get away with it because it might cost law enforcement a few dollars to investigate. The comment below is a prime example of the m i ndset that allows this sort of thing to go on. Oh a friend of mind does it and it keeps her off welfare. Does your friend feel ood about connig honest hard working ppl out of their hard earned dollars? But just like alot of other things sooner or later people will get tired of it. Just sayin.

Look people just answer puts it as a entertainment site. plus what do you really expect from online. you have people all over the web
doing the same thing and they are people that can't get jobs in the real world. or they have a disability. This help people stay off of welfare. I know a friend of a friend that loves this site. He couldn't live with out the site because .This person doesn't do facebook. He is 400 pounds. disfigured in a car accident. and these people on just answer. gets him them the day. no church people, or anyone. would really care. So to him this website is a life savior. yes he spend a lot of money. but it's equal to going out to the movies. going out to eat. and so on. This site should not have real professionals on it. Because they don't get paid enough for there time,education and so on. so everyone treat this site like if you was calling a old friend for information not a lawyer, or a plumber, or a dentist, because these folks don't make enough to be on this site. Thank you just answer for coming up with this site to help my friend of a friend out.

Quit your ***, Pajeet. Someone paying $70 to get an answer about whether they can take two medicines together without it causing liver damage isn't looking for "entertainment answers".

An avatar is not a picture of a person. A picture of another person involves fraud and deception.
If your experts do not want to engage in fraud and deception post a picture of avatar like a fish,
This is clearly fraud, misleading and an abuse of internet technology.
Furthermore, I cannot be satisfied that I am talking to the person who's credentials have been verified when the picture does not represent that person. I could be talking with their cousin as far as I know.
I think you realize that this fraud should stop now.
