Already caught some scammers

Well, our youngest project, Bienen und Blumen is not that popular yet (altough getting more popular each day) but already attracted its first scammers. That type of scam is called Internet Love Scam or Internet Romance Scam and I didn't know it is such a plague. But now, the website has been updated to automaticly detect this and defend itself:


Hope it helps.

ah…free dating site in german…kind of remind me of ‘plenty of fish’ site. thanks to google translator:

‘Bees and flowers is a modern, free single market for Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Users remain anonymous here, it’s not even necessarily need an email address.’

‘Bees and flowers’? i think google mis-translated something…

What kind of algorithms are you using for detecting the romance scammers? :)
yomero - 22 10 08 - 21:46

hehe, kinjalkishor, hope you like the page :)
algorithms: nothing special, its similar to fishing out spam. Just some kind of scoring.

The grey box on the right side of the screen always reminds of me of a ad provided by Adsense. The first few times I simply did not really recognized it because I “identified” it as an advertisement. Maybe you can change that somehow. I admit I don’t clearly now how though …

@niko, not only the page, I like he whole site and its features. So much for free. Even lovehappens was not so good, though it was international.(it shut down and was match making but I was its big fan). I am very much satisfied with the features of bienenundblumen. This site is going to be big hit. As users seem very happy. I am myself for that matter.
I am really happy now learning more German s it has now more purpose.
