"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.
Cybersecurity company Symantec revealed in a blog post earlier this month that it had come across fake Tinder profiles, which spam people and direct them to an apparent porn site designed to take their money.
You are then presented with strangers' profiles one by one and you can swipe the person's profile left to essentially "pass" on them and right to "like" them.
If both people "like" one another they are connected through an in-app chat feature.
The "girl" that Symantec chatted with sent a shortened link to a webcam site.
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.
