Glass Cams, also known as Glasscams.com is a cam web site owned by Friend Finder Network (FFN). FFN has many sites such as friendfinder.com, amigos.com, and passion.com as well as many adult themed websites like adultfriendfinder.com and alt.com. Here is a review and what you need to know…
Is Glasscams legitimate?
The best I can tell, glasscams.com is legitimate for what it offers. It is pretty obvious what you get, and nothing hidden or deceptive about the site. However, you could be scammed in to signing up.
Before we get to the scam, this is important…
In October 2016, FFN websites were breached exposing 412 million records. This was the largest data breach in 2016.
In 2015, Adultfriendfinder had a security breach that exposed 3.9 million customer records.
Experts believe that if you were a member of any of the Friend Finder Network properties, your data was probably exposed. This data included usernames, passwords, email, and IP addresses. The cyber-security community generally thinks that FFN was extremely negligent in the second breach.

Aside from the hacks, what’s the glasscams.com scam?
The scam is the way the girls get you to sign up. A young women posts on a dating site and pretends to be offering companionship. Posts have been found on Craigslist, Plenty of Fish, and Tinder.
Your “date” provides contact information – frequently this is done by encoding her phone number in the post or on a picture. When you contact the girl via text message, she gives you a personal website for her information. The catch is that before you meet her, you need to sign-up to glasscams.com and purchase credits (tokens) so that she knows you are serious.
The “Models Wanted” link on the site reveals the incentive. The girl will receive 100% of the proceeds for the first 6 months of any new visitor she brings to the site. There is also a residuals program. The payment can be much less if the customer was not someone the girl brought to the site.
Apparently this has been going on for some time. A google search reveals the same scam being reported on TER 2 years ago.
If you find a girl who wants you to sign up to glasscams or any any cam site then just move on. You are not going to meet this person. After review of the overall situation, it cannot be said that Friend Finder Networks is trying to scam you, nor could you say that glasscams.com is a scam. Friend Finder Network could post a warning when you sign up about this situation. After all, that would be the friendly thing to do. 😉
There are an unknown number of women who are using this tactic. The most prolific seems to be “Brook”. You can read about her in the article Brook: A Scam by Any Other Name. She goes by many names, and changes her name, website, and phone number regularly. Based on reader feedback, I think there are some copy cats as well.
Here is a list of them with whatever information I have been able to gather. If you run in to one of these girls, please post a comment below to help keep track of them. This will help others keep up with these very busy scammers.
