Tinder doesn't currently have any way to report spam in the app, and Symantec suggests that you just "block" any users who you suspect are fake.
"We are aware of the spammers and have already taken precautions to prevent them from bothering our users," a Tinder spokesperson said in a statement to The Huffington Post.
"It's safe to say that it will no longer be an issue."The fake profiles are not just there to annoy you, they're there to take your money.
Once they entice you with stilted flirty language, they invite you to videochat with them.
Tinder may be the hot new dating app for regular folks and beauty queens, but it's not without flaws.
If both people "like" one another they are connected through an in-app chat feature.The fake "girls" on Tinder will explain to you that the site needs your credit card information to verify your age.Once you give your credit card information, you will be automatically signed up for the sketchy webcam site's premium membership.The "girl" that Symantec chatted with sent a shortened link to a webcam site.
If you're silly enough to accept that invitation, you're brought to a page that asks for your credit card information.
If you don't read the fine print you won't realize that you'll automatically get charged almost if you don't cancel your account quickly enough.
