Being Hit On on WA? No Thank You!

Last Update: March 03, 2018

Something that has become so common place on social media, especially on Facebook, is being hit on. At least once a week I get a message on Facebook from some random male that I don't know.

They usually say they "find my profile attractive" and want to be friends and get to know me better.

So yesterday I got hit on here in WA via private message from a member. The same drill about how he finds my profile attractive.

To any man on WA that hits on me here, let me share my full feelings here with you.

1) You find my profile attractive? Which part exactly? The married mother of 2?

I find this offensive, you have just insulted me and my marriage vows.

2) I am here on WA to make money and to expand my business.

Seriously if I was seeking an online relationship I would sign up to a dating website, I wouldn't be here looking for a relationship with anyone.

I am here for one thing only. To make money, to expand my business and yes to form relationships with people that have similar interests. I have made some amazing connections here. No, NOT romantic relationships. I am talking about colleagues, people that are also interested in making money online. We share tips and support each other - TO MAKE MONEY ONLINE.

Now I am not sure what Kyle and Caron's take is on this, but I'll speak for myself and I am sure a load of women will agree - I don't want to be hit on here with your sleazy come on lines about my "attractive profile".

It is not appropriate here or any other social media channel. The only place where that is appropriate is on a dating site. Take it there please. I really don't want this platform to turn into another Facebook where it becomes common place to hit on women.

I took the time to think about this overnight and I have decided if any man hits on me here I will hit that report button.

UPDATED - loads of women have confirmed they have been hit up by the same guy... how sad!

This makes me sure that this is scammer or con artist - what do we all have in common here at WA? We all want to make money online! And this guy is trying to get us all to contact him privately. Ladies please please report and block this guy.

Hey Lynne,

I've reached out via PM to discuss the details - it's not ok for people to speak to anyone like this and we take this very, very seriously.

Gosh Lynne, I'm so sorry to hear this has happened to you! Unfortunately, there are some people that just have no respect for others and even here at WA, you'll find a few of those, but thankfully it is few and far between.

It looks like Carson and Kyle are taking of this situation for you though so hopefully this doesn't happen to you again in the future. Here's to success for you with your online business here at WA!

Sorry for the insult Lynne, I don't do WhatsUpp friend, I used to see people offline talking about it, whatsupping everyone. To me its waste of money, spending 6 years talking, making friendship with billion people. I know where you come from and going to, "building lifelong online/offline business"

That's what we're taught here and nothing else, Those people "find my profile attractive" and want to be friends and get to know me better." they must check WA terms and conditions

We have reached 1 million mark membership,
Some people join WA to monitor what we're doing, leave and comment about us somewhere, some still believe in Backlinking strategies, since were're 1 million+ they see great opportunities for backlinking.

Other people are here just for fun or other non business related reasons, disregarding social media/ WA terms and conditions.
I suggest WA support should monitor the entire membership and check for site terms & condition violators. Cheers Lynne keep going girl

I just came across your article, I think he is been doing this to a LOT of women. I went on his page today and he is down to still 8 women, he is unfollowing those that reject him, he had almost 20 women a few days ago and I think those are the ones he is still got to try. so far I haven't seen anyone still on his network on this post. he sent me his email since I wouldn't give out mine. stopped talking to me and unfollowed when I told him this wasn't a dating site or a place to pick up women. women need to stick together on this crap, it's not acceptable. and as you said, if we were looking for a date, we would be on a dating site and not here trying to better our lives.

Unfortunately WA is a like any society where you have people that don't have proper "home training". I can't tell you how many people are here on WA to socialize rather than to focus on their business like you and I want to do. And that's all good if you're interacting with other users that are receptive and want this as well.

But no member should have to endure any type of harassment like this. So let Kyle and Carson know about this and/or call them out in your post. Eventually Kyle and Carson will do something such as restricting these members access and communication ability. And if they continue to be a problem, they will just get rid of these members.

However that's the struggle with having a community of millions. There are always going to be a few bad apples that try to do things that they shouldn't. Unfortunately it's always going to be an issue just like it is in our society outside of WA. But Kyle and Carson so their best to combat it. Fortunately it's a very small percentage of shady members like this. And it's great we have a platform like these blogs to expose these folks and problems. So thanks for doing your part.

Thanks Eddy :) I couldn't agree with you more. In fact with a community of this size it is surprising that this is the first dodgy experience I have had. I need to keep that in mind!
Reply
EddySalomon Premium
You're welcome. Yeah I always try to help people keep that in perspective. Sometimes I get private messages from members that make it seem like the sky is falling because of a few bad apples here at WA.

And it's not to diminish the negative experiences that these rogue members bring to our community as a whole. But obviously most of the experiences here are positive. So if we experience 1% or less negative experiences here, I think that's fairly reasonable given the millions of people here and that most interactions are positive.

That said Kyle and Carson do take it serious and react. They would love if that percentage of negative interactions was 0. But that's not realistic when we can't even do that in our normal society. lol

So we as members just have to do our best to police some of this nonsense ourselves by sharing it like you did here. And letting Kyle and Carson know so they can eventually do something. But we have to be reasonable as a community as well to understand they juggle so many things to make this place as great as it is. So they may not be able to react as quickly sometimes. And we as a community will always have rogue nonsense like this and it doesn't mean the community is bad or going down as I've heard some members try to suggest because we haven't achieved the perfection of stopping every single negative interaction.

But it sounds like you get that. So I appreciate what you've done here.

I do feel it is a community thing like you say Eddy. This is our space and our community, we need to protect it. If we make it a place where the bad apples don't have much space to breath or move then they won't stay long and try find somewhere else to target.

Agreed Lynne. And I think what you did here is what helps keep these type of rare incidents at a minimum. So I applaud you for doing it. We won't ever be able to prevent all negative things like this from happening. But we can report it and let Kyle and Carson handle it.

As long as we report to Kyle quickly, it will be dealt with. He's always on top of things when I've reported spam.

I get hit on on Instagram and Facebook all the time. I block them when it happens. I'm happy to say not here at WA, not yet anyway. If anyone tries it they won't like what I have to say.

It is indeed offensive. The women are here for the same reason as the man, to learn and earn a living online and connect with a supportive community of like minded business people. That's it. For anyone to feel that it's appropriate to hit on the female members, well, they should be banned from this community permanently. It's plain old harassment.

It's not what we're here for. Thanks for posting this reminder to report bad behavior as soon as it crops up.

Yes I get a load of in on Facebook and I always block them. I guess the lesson I had to learn here is to be more wary than I have been. This platform is growing and with that will come the growth of the scammers and bad eggs. It is just a sad fact of life.

Men here at WA and other social platforms also receive such messages. They’re sent en masse, with no regard for the detail of who you actually are. It’s just a preliminary attempt at catfishing.

My observation is that (sorry chaps) women tend to be more cagey about such overtures, while men tend to be more receptive to the flattery. Even when it comes from obviously dud profiles. Men are less likely to call them out or report them.

Yes, the usual approach goes something along the lines of just discovering you, your picture looks so good. Let’s be friends. Ok, this could count for part of any regular interaction, but will also go further: if you seem receptive, you’ll be invited to take the discussion somewhere private, usually offsite. Then the fun and games begin.

Such scammers often work in teams, and share the details of people deemed receptive with others of their ilk.

Good. I hope you’re not too ruffled by it. It’s just one more of those online nuisances we learn to live with and manage, and some will probably annoy us more than others.

I get crabby reading fake profiles hither and thither, for instance; it really gets my goat. The profiles in question are (usually) set up to claim a spurious identity in an English-speaking country they don’t live in, and don’t understand the nuances of. Even allowing for diaspora identities, they’re way off and so very try-hard in their colloquialisms.

I get crabby when the con is bad, can you believe it? Yes, yes, I think, I’m sure you’re a banker-farmer-doctor from Iowa-NYC-Alaska. Alas, people are so decent and trusting when there are no overt cons. And mirabile dictu, years of deep textual analysis leave me with an inability to skip by without noticing the weird and dishonest idiosyncrasies of text.

Anyhow, let’s all just agree to take care of each other. There are better ways to live than with lies.

Not long after I joined WA I was 'bothered' by a member obviously trying to sign me for his MLM program. It occurred to me that Cheersbrian2 was either looking for a romantic date, or to include me in his MLM downline. Possibly both!

Wealthy Affiliate is a great place to learn to build a solid income, don't let this kind of person distract you from your primary mission, just ignore them. I never read ads or messages that not interested me, I erased them just after reading the title. Time is the most valuable thing you have in life, so don't waste it on stupid things.

Lynne, in this day and age of #MeToo, any man, especially who is a member of Wealthy Affiliate caught making that kind of thoroughly inappropriate remark to you should instantaneously, without so much as a second's thought have his membership permanently revoked by Kyle and/or Carson. What is that lout thinking? Has he had his head stuck in the sand for the last year or two? This type of behavior against any female located anywhere in the world in the year 2018 is frankly criminal!

Any man stupid enough to act in this juvenile manner should realize that he could be setting himself up to have some type of action initiated against him that would be most unpleasant. It is something that you just do not do in this day and age. He obviously is full of himself, definitely narcissistic, and is most deserved of having his inflated, bombastic ego knocked down a peg or two.

Besides being a first-class jerk, (and something else I'm currently thinking of but not at all appropriate for me to write down) he has the immaturity of your average 4 year old child and as I know that you have kids about that age, Lynne I apologize for comparing them to that fool who embarrassed himself by paying attention to you in the most inappropriate manner! Your kids are more mature then that imbecile!

Hi Lynne,

What a smart move to write a blog about this, so that we could all come together in recognizing these members. Thank you!

I got couple of messages recently: one from the same guy cheersbrian2 - ignored. Another one, just a few days earlier - from oldskool - left him a public "Welcome!" message on his wall.

I think Kyle should know.

And yes, I agree that the number of similar messages on Facebook has increased lately.

I gave him the benefit of the doubt with his first pm but in his second, he was very clear that he really liked my Bio and was single and wanted to get to know me better. I told him that WA is not a dating site and that if he had read my Bio, I clearly state that I have been married for 36 years and still am very much married.

I am not shocked to hear that there are guys so thick headed and shallow that they use any platform - any social media connection - to do such a despicable thing!

These types of individuals are probably living in their momma's basement and only interact with others through their computers and iPhones. And, it is very evident that they have never been taught how to show respect and class when dealing with others - especially those of the opposite sex.

I'm truly sorry that one of these dork nerds have the unmitigated gall to do this to you, Lynne, or any of the other ladies here, in our WA community!

It doesn't bode well for those of us, males, who would never think of doing such a thing. And, I double-dog guarantee you that, if I ever see or hear of anyone admitting to this practice, I will report them, myself!

For these weasels to do this is an unthinkable breach of trust!

Lynne you need to name and shame them types of people/profiles, so we can all avoid them.

If people are paying for premium on platforms such as WA then they should be, to the least, be learning or implementing the trainings here and not hitting on, or flirting with random people they don't know.

EIther they is some is something with thier heads, or it could be scammers way to try to manipulate people.

I've seen a few profiles on WA spamming their profiles and trying to sell services.

I suspected as much when I woke up to a message this morning. It must be the same man you are all talking about because his profile looked to me to be a copy and paste job too. I'm getting a bit tired of the Facebook messages, and now they are starting to use Twitter and Pinterest to sleaze on to women as well. I was surprised to see it happen here. Not the first time for me but thankfully it has not happened very often. I'm glad you have written this post because now I know other women have been contacted and I will report him too. How do I do that?

Totally agree with you, Lynne. Let's keep Wealthy Affiliate a safe space for building business. I also received a similar message yesterday and just deleted it.
For ages, I only followed women on Wealthy Affiliate and a handful of men (the leadership here) for exactly this reason. My marriage and family are more important to me.
However as a Super Affiliate in training and as an Ambassador I have relaxed my own rules a bit and so far, everyone has been all about business and it's been fine. If my hubby expresses concern, I will unfollow all men again.
I guess newcomers need to learn the rules of engagement here? Perhaps a poor choice of wording. Ha ha. Just send them the anti spam rules? I did hear of one successful WA romance a while back so I guess it's fine for the singles?
Regarding the part about insulting marriage vows... I think only we have the power to do that, if we responded to these kind of messages. It's pretty harmless if we don't respond. I hope.
Well done you for sending such a clear message.

Well I don't think there is anything wrong with building a friendship and then that evolving into a romance....but this is nothing like that. This is a sleazy come on being copy pasted to a number of married women at WA.

I'm single Lauren and he hit on me too, even though he didn't know I am single because it's not on my profile purely to avoid people like this. I do tend to ignore these requests on Facebook due to the nature of social media, but I truly hope this does not become a norm in WA though. To be honest, it annoyed me to be 'hit on' here in such a manner because it is a .place of business and should be treated as such by everyone. I'm not opposed to the thought of meeting someone here but its certainly not in any part of my mind and I would think twice about it, and am definitely not interested in being approached by someone who clearly has the dating skills of a 3 year old. I thought about responding to him, then I decided not to because I'm not interested in wasting my valuable time on it. To be honest, I think the more we ignore it, the more this platform is at risk of becoming another Facebook so I've happily reported this member in the hopes of it deterring him from telling his 200 Facebook friends to come here because at the moment it's an unsaturated meat market. I would consider sending the anti-spam rules, but realised that might open a conversation with him so decided against it. It was nice to hear that there have been some romances developed here, but I'm sure they were approached in a more socially acceptable manner. You're doing really well with your SWAG training I have seen. Keep up the great work with it.
