Here is a list of a few of the most common scams in this industry:


1. Sugar Daddy Sending Money To Your Bank Account

This trick is widespread, and it happens not only on the sugar daddy websites but also on the social media platforms, such as Instagram or Facebook. How does it work? Let’s see.


If you are new to the sugar baby world, you may not know the ins and outs yet. Scammers flood to new accounts, promising money to be sent through the victim’s bank account. This action never goes well. As a sugar baby, you will never need to provide your banking information (login, personal bank info, passports, etc.) to a scammer. They may end up then asking for gift cards if you deny this.

One example would be the Western Union trick that is done typically in the Mystery Shopper Scam. That means they send you a check that you deposit in your bank account, but you have to purchase gift cards for them and keep the balance. More specifically, they send you, say, a $1,200 check, but you need to buy gift cards worth of $500 and deposit the check after. Many girls think they get a $700 balance gift from their sugar daddies, but the truth is different.

However, your bank will recognize this in a few days as a fraudulent check or charge, and you will end up owing all the money back. This is a red flag to run and not normalcy in sugar baby world. Recognize that with technology on the rise, scammers can use fake video apps, fake IDs, and create aliases.


2. Time Wasting Sugar Daddy

“This type of scam is prevalent in the sugar baby world”, says Liz Brock, a private investigator from Root Investigations, a New York-based company.

“The time-waster is exactly how it sounds: someone who is wasting your precious time. The scammer claims to be a sugar daddy who wants to meet with you but never does. He won’t send money. He’s lonely looking for someone to talk to. He will ask you to meet but never have the time.”

“People have came to us with the scammers’ accounts and names to check their assets & background, only to uncover they are using an alias and not who they claim to be. This individual is likely looking for online companionship over an actual sugar baby relationship, whatever that may be.”, says Brock.

You can avoid this by running a background check to see who the person is, but be aware of the Background Check Scam as well. You can also ask them for some small cash advance and see if they speak again. Often this will steer clear any fraud.


3. The Overseas Sugar Daddy

One of the earliest scams we have seen time and time again is the Sweetheart Scam. This trick once targeted older females in search of love. As technology progressed, it has evolved into a similar scam that targets sugar babies. The scam goes like this:

The scammer typically is an individual that claims to be overseas, working. This can include mining, oil rigging, fisherman, military, oceanography, or aerospace. The job can of course vary, but it is at one where he’s disconnected from society. He is unable to meet but looking forward to meeting soon.

“The scammer in this particular scam is heavily invested in the emotional component. The criminal puts an excessive amount of time talking to the victim,  wooing them with his promises, texting daily. He then mentions how he would like to meet but cannot get there due to lack of funds and needs help booking his ticket – or a similar excuse, such as an accident that just happened – and will pay the sugar baby a large sum once they meet.”, says Brock.

This scam takes place across sugar daddy sites, dating sites, and social media (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook). On Instagram or Twitter, the scammer typically will send you a DM with their telephone number, trying to make contact with you.


4. Blackmail Sugar Babies

Some people are so naive when talking to a sugar baby that believe they are being loved beyond borders. Once some sugar babies get bored or stop receiving money, they blackmail the sugar daddy by threatening with releasing in public compromising pictures that they ask for during the ‘relationship’.


5. Findom and Pay Pigs

We left this one at last, as it is also very interesting. Look at the image below. It is a Twitter account of someone who willingly admits is a catfish, and is ready to drain all the sugar daddy’s cash – the ultimate derogatory move in the BDSM world.

The profile could be real or fake, but it doesn’t really matter. The point is, there are tons of profiles like this out there. They target the type of sugar daddy that is referred to as a “pay pig”. What exactly is a pay pig, besides, well, what is sounds like?

“The pay pig is someone in the BDSM community which is typically a male who enjoys being mistreated by his sugar baby. The sugar daddy is typically looking to serve his mistress financially. The mistress typically humiliates the male by talking down to him in a derogatory manner. The pay pig may ask even how he’s allowed to spend his own money, etc.”.

“The user of the account steals the photos from a professional model and then a guy begs to spend money on them – psychologically, this would be the ultimate degrading move for the sugar daddy  – who wants to be degraded anyway. Think about it, you can’t even get a real woman to degrade you and are stuck with the person on the other end who is piggybacking off of someone else videos and photos. The men love to be referred to as losers, pathetic, slaves, and ultimately, be dominated. It could also just be going after people who do not read things and are just looking at the photos.”, concludes Brock.

This type of activity is known as Findom, and you may see a bunch of hashtags for that. According to the Urban Dictionary, findom is “a combination of 2 words: financial domination. Findom is an authentic fetish involving a submissive being “forced” to give money to the Dominant. Terms like money slave, pay pig, money pig, wallet slave, wallet rape are all part of the play involved in this type of domination and submission. Some men are very turned on by and seek out findom mistresses and are aroused by the act of submitting so entirely to a dominant female.”

Sugar Daddy Websites: How To Avoid The Scams

There is a multitude of ways to protect yourself against these scammers, if you decide to take the plunge into the sugar daddy world. First, if they have a name – google it. If you see it’s vague, add “scam” or their field they are employed with to see if they’ve been using this alias before. Next, do a photo reverse search of their image. How can you do that? We have good news.


How To Identify If a Profile Is Fake or Real

Watch the video below to see how you can easily identify if the profile or the picture used by your ‘lover’ is real or fake:




Never send gift cards, banking info, bitcoin, Western Union transfers, or any money to a stranger online. Do not ever send compromising photos before the meeting, as they may be used to blackmail you. If they are sending photos but never able to talk on video chat, this is a huge warning sign as well (no matter how old or out of touch with the technology they claim to be).


Best Place To Find a Sugar Daddy?

If you are looking online for the best place to find a sugar daddy, the answer is simple: in real life. On the other hand, if you had success in this endeavor, feel free to share in the Comments section below.

Always meet in a public place for your safety. And of course, run a background check on their number, full name, username, to see if any scams are associated with the individual. Avoid finding sugar daddies on non-verified websites. If you find one using hashtags on Instagram or Twitter, never send them money.

Never provide your real name, usernames (even from Venmo) or real telephone number – set up a Google voice or fake number and use an alias so you cannot be blackmailed.  We also recommend background checks to check assets. People could be the ones in their photos but have horrible credit, liens, judgments, as well as not living the lifestyle they claim, thus wasting your time.

  1. Bonsoir comment allez vous.
    Je me nomme Jocelyne. Je viens d’être victime d’une arnaque 
    Il y quelques mois je traversais une période très critique et pour m’échanger des idées je me suis inscrite sur quelques sites de rencontres dans le but de trouver un homme bien. Rapidement, j’ai été contacté par un membre. Il m’a demandé de créer un compte sur Skype pour communiquer avec lui. Ne sachant pas me servir de l’outil, j’ai demandé à ma petite fille de me créer un compte. Suite à cela j’ai appris seule à m’en servir. Nous avons dialogué quelques semaines à parler de notre vie. Il disait être Canadien veuf et qu’il avait une petite fille, il m’a même fait connaître sa fille via Skype. Cela semblait de plus en plus fort entre nous et je me suis attachée .A chaque fois où je lui demande de le rencontrer lui et sa fille il me dit je prends le train, l’avion, il avait un empêchement de dernières minutes. Il a fini par m’avouer qu’il n’avait pas le temps parce qu’il devrait se rendre au Maroc pour des achats de bois et que l’on se verra à son retour car il n’avait pas pour longtemps ignorant qu’il profitait de ma naïveté. Un soir tard dans la nuit juste avant la fin de son séjour il me téléphone que tout allait mal qu’il s’est fait agressé par des personnes armés et qu’ils l’ont dépouillé et qu’il avait besoin d’argent pour se rendre au Bénin car ses marchandises ont été bloqué à la Douane. Prise de peur et ne voulant pas le perdre je lui ai proposé mon aide en lui envoyant 1800 euros par mandat Western union le lendemain et d’autres envoie par la suite .Les demandes d’argent se succèdent sans cesse pour pleins de raisons que je ne peux pas expliquer car trop long par écrit. Je me suis rendu compte au fil du temps que je me faisais avoir. J’ai mis une forte partie de mes économies dans cette histoire en tout 39750 Euros. J’ai porté plainte à la police et à la gendarmerie parce que les huissiers étaient à ma trousse parce que j’ai eu a transféré des chèques qui n’étaient que des chèques volés mais pas de suite. C’est alors que j’en ai parlé à une amie puisque j’avais honte d’en parler à mes enfants. Et grâce à l’une de ses connaissances j’ai pu prendre contact avec un lieutenant d’une Organisation à qui j’ai tout expliqué pour qu’il m’aide à engager des procédures pour que l’escroc soit arrêté et jugé. J’avais hésité en premier de prendre contact avec le lieutenant parce que je ne savais pas quoi lui dire .J’ai surpassé ma peur en lui expliquant mon histoire et par ses instructions ils ont réussi à mettre la main sur celui qui m’a escroqué. Je voudrais juste faire bénéficier de cette connaissance à ceux qui ont été victimes d’arnaque de fausses histoire d’amour comme moi ou d’une arnaque de prêt entre particulier ou d’autre sorte d’arnaque par Internet de prendre contact avec le lieutenant pour qu’il vous aides dans les procédures afin de mettre la main sur votre escroc et de récupérer votre argent et d’un dédommagement au lieu de garder le silence et souffrir en cachette pour éviter la honte dans votre famille parce que tout l’argent que j’avais perdu m’ont été remboursés plus des frais de dédommagement car sans lui je serais sans doute à la rue. Voici son contact

  2. I had one, who is upfront about his ID, selfie, cell number, and allegedly his SSN number. He ended up giving me a digital phone number, as it it’s not a real cell phone, but you can text and call it.
    I fell for sharing my ID but gave him a fake SSN number. After the fact, I figured that’s his scam: going around trying to get ppl’s legit info to use to convince someone to deposit a fake check into their bank account. Obviously, they are trying to steal money from you.
    I fell for it. I just lost my job and my worries ignored my good sense. I never even used the money. I kept contacting the bank every few days, trying to make sure the check was fine. The bank froze my account without warning and is treating me like a number after I have been with them for 16yrs and never bounced a check before in my life!
