Don’t Give Your Credit Card Number To Fake Gay Porn Stars

Posted April 26, 2016 by with 32 comments

rocco1Internet fraud is nothing new—I think I received my first Nigerian prince email scam in, like, 1998?—but it has managed to evolve. One new way for criminals to defraud people is to pretend to be gay porn stars, then solicit fans for their credit card numbers in exchange for a webcam show, or even an in-person meeting. In case it isn’t obvious: Don’t give your credit card number to a gay porn star over the internet. It’s a scam, and you are not talking to a real gay porn star. Even some real gay porn stars asking for money are scammers, too, but that’s another story. In short: Don’t give money to people on the internet. It’s really not that hard.

Last year, a fake Boomer Banks was caught trying to get a fan’s credit card number via Grindr, with the promise of a “free cam show.” Other high profile stars being impersonated across social media (Twitter Facebook, Scruff, etc.) include Brent Corrigan, Brent Everett, and Rocco Steele, who tells Str8UpGayPorn that these scams are “happening to everyone now. Innocent fans are getting taken to the bank.”

Steele continues:

The [scammer] will start flirting with a fan and say, “Come over to my hotel room, but give me a few minutes, my agent is here,” to make it sound official. Then they’ll say, “But why don’t you sign up for my cam show in the meantime.” And then the fan will actually show up to the lobby of the hotel that the scammer mentioned. Then I’ll get an email asking where I am.”

Here’s an example of just one of the many fake Facebook pages impersonating Rocco Steele:

Again: Do not give your credit card number to someone on the internet, no matter how big of a “fan” you are. Rocco has stated explicitly and repeatedly that he will never ask someone for their credit card number.

Same thing with other high profile stars like Brent Corrigan and Brent Everett, who have both repeatedly pointed out the fake profiles impersonating them. Unfortunately, at least one fan, “Donald E. Bender,” was tricked into giving money to fake Brent Everett/Corrigan accounts, and now he’s taken to Twitter to harass the real Brents. This is…uhh…unfortunate:

scam   brent2brent5OK, to be fair, this person probably deserved to be scammed. But still! Don’t give your credit card number to people on the internet.

    Dude doesn’t sound like he’s been scammed he sounds like he needs to take his meds……bet he barks at the moon at night…..

  • Silver64

    This Bender guy was kind of fun to follow for a couple of times, just for the sake of curiosity, but he really really needs some help.

    Bender really likes to go on a bender…that’s for sure…and it’s some scary shit.

    I have a hard time feeling sorry for people who are just plain stupid. Not saying it’s right, but they aren’t exactly blameless when they fall for the most low-level, barely even trying scams.

    Stupid is as stupid does.

  • Casey Scott

    Dear Lord, Donald Bender… His Tweets about Brent Everett go all the way back to October or November 2015. Oddly it seems he started the Twitter account exclusively to start Tweeting about being scammed by “him”.

  • Zealot

    I was sorta feeling bad for him until the “Trump has balls” comment. Maybe he can apply to Trump’s balls after the election for a reimbursement of losses suffered at the hands of a faux-Canadian, faux-porn star scammer. BTW, He’s doing all he can to make “scammer” a thing, isn’t he? And doesn’t “Scammer” sound like a villain from Dora the Explorer? SCAMMER NO SCAMMING! SCAMMER NO SCAMMING!

      I saw that and was very amused.

      Look at his friends. Half of them are Nigerians. No shade, no tea. Honest fucking truth.

    Any idiot should know not to be giving any of these porn whores their money, fake or not.

  • Pertinax

    I don’t know if I understand properly, but the oldie sold a house…his house… in hopes to pay for sex with a Brent Everest impersonator…The price of the fuck was what a house worth…wasn’t it ? How long this sex was supposed to last a week, a month ?

    • Pertinax

      This is so depressing that I decided to post a real Rocco Steele’s pic to make his ” fans ” happy. I also think we must trust him because due to the size of his appendage it must put his body n’ mind in a very well balanced, stable, ballasted position.

      • sxg

        Real??? That pic looks photoshopped lol

        • Pertinax

          If exists one man that doesn’t need photoshop this one is him. If someone photoshopped his dick what expect about the others. Besides I couldn’t see nothing different between this Rocco’s pic and the other zillion pics that I have seen, Dicks are made to grow and shrink.

          • sxg

            Wasn’t talking about his dick!

          • Pertinax

            Ah ! Smooth face…Maybe isn’t photoshop but good lighting.

          • sxg

            Not (just) the face. It’s also how broad his arms and shoulders are, and his waist looks like it’s been tailored.

          • Pertinax

            …So this isn’t human because it’s like a paper doll. Did they leave anything without retouch ? His soul, perhaps ?

  • Seth82

    amazing.

    didn’t think there were still people left that were stupid enough to give out their credit card numbers.

  • Myko

    Donald is batshit crazy

  • WhimsyCotton

    Oh my goodness. The internet is a dangerous place for such a vulnerable mind of such an advanced age.

  • OneOfTheManyChris

    Unfortunately “My victim is a stupid batshit Trump supporter” is not a defense under the law. If it were, so many of us could be rich now.

  • R.A.M.J

    you’re dumb as fuck if you give money to ANY porn star real or fake.
