    Camgirl Advice In A Nutshell 

    I’ve received a lot of emails in recent years asking where I have been, what sites I work on now. Surprisingly, it appears my absence from the big sites has not gone unnoticed. I’m flattered that people still remember me. It’s been quite a long time that I have been in this industry and there are probably a bazillion more camgirls following in my very footsteps. Oh, how I wish someone would have given me pointers back then of what was to come. Things would be quite different today. Anyway, I guess I could pass my knowledge along to others, perhaps save a few from harassment, destruction of self-esteem or having too high hopes, just plain believing everything they hear from the industry pimps with their brainwashing, bullying, thefts, lies. I’m being 100% honest when I say … this is as kind as I can be on them.

    For those curious, I do occasionally sign into select sites (none of which I feel deserve a glowing recommendation though). I only cam for a couple of hours on them. My philosophy is that time is money and wasted time is wasted money. So, what’s worked for me? Complete independence and signing in directly on Skype has given me the best success, so my advice to any camgirl would be to stick with what pays and not be fooled by what ‘appears’ to have the most traffic, gets the glowingest reviews or is considered amongst the ‘top sites’. It’s all about the money and if there’s none today, there will be none tomorrow. You have nothing to prove to the sites, it’s them that has something to prove to you because you are their bread and butter, not the other way around, Please don’t ever forget that.

    Happy camming!

    Sex For Money 

    Sex for money doesn’t exist only in the porn industry. It’s everywhere. People marry for money, offering sex in return. Some offer sex in exchange for job promotions, business deals. Sex is all over television and in every broadcast imaginable, including ads. Especially ads. There is sex  in movies, music, sports, all over social media. With sex commercialized in promotional and marketing efforts everywhere we turn, how can anyone scrutinize the porn industry for using the same tactic everyone else on the planet does to sell its products and services? If anything, there’s more legitimacy to it in porn. In fact, I will even go as far as to say they are the only ones giving you exactly what they advertise.

    Thought for the day.

    Camgirl Advice 

    I’m one in a very small list of women who could take a long look back at the camming industry over the last 19 years and write its life story. As one of the original camgirls, I guess you could say I made a career out of being objectified. In a way, I felt like I had brought it on myself. My choices were either learn to accept it or defend myself every time I came across someone who felt the need to try to belittle me. The mannerisms, behaviour, poses, strut, flirtations, right down to the lingo I used online differed almost completely from who I was in real life. I am slightly reserved and dress casual, sometimes conservative. If I wore a cleavage-bearing top, they were paired with pants or sweatpants, never a mini skirt. I never dressed to impress anyone but myself. A sharp contrast to the stripper I was online, who wore things like stilettoes, Daisy Dukes and other items I wouldn’t dare wear outside, if even just to run to the car. What I did on the internet, stayed on the internet. It was in front of my video camera and in the privacy of my own home. The controlling pimps in my industry, with as much class as subway rats, take objectification to a whole other level. They also steal from the girls, mentally abuse them, harrass them and treat them as though they should be lucky to have a job, rather than being thankful that these women are even willing to line their pockets week after week, despite the peanuts the girls actually get to keep for themselves.

    What I want to stress is that women (especially in this industry) need to empower themselves, not sit back and allow themselves to be belittled. When something doesn’t seem right, speak out. There is too much silence and complacency, which has done nothing but fuel the greed of those in powerful positions, to the point where camgirls are becoming obsolete. I believe by now, we all know what CamDecoy is. It’s just one in many programs they use and ways they have learned to cut us out of our own share of the profits from sales of our content.

    The best advice I can give any camgirl in the industry is … work toward becoming truly independent. Trust no one in the industry. Remember that there is always someone earning more money from your content than you are. Shows, images, videos (recorded and live) are what they’re after. If your show is not direct on Skype (meaning you sign into your own account and not through a website first, then to Skype), then there is a middleman. If the customer is paying you through a third-party and not directly to your own account, there is a middleman. Every time there is a middleman, you’re at risk of losing content, customers, money, and everything you worked so hard for. If you ever find yourself making good money, invest it wisely and know that at any time, things can start to get strange. Amounts of money can disappear from your stats, customers will claim they can’t find you online anymore, your block zones don’t work, your revenues are declining rapidly, etc. Live in the ‘now’ and stash away your cash but at the same time, always be prepared with a back-up plan for employment.

      I recently discovered your blog, and as someone who visits cam sites somewhat regularly and who has interacted with many cam girls i find it very interesting. You’ve done a good job creating a lot of interesting content.

    Adult Industry Payment Processors – All Scams? 

    I had finally grown tired of Zombaio’s late payments, constant excuses and unprofessionalism, so I closed my account with them and started to look for a new payment processor. I wrote several of the bigger known ones, inquiring about their service charges and fees.

    During e-mail conversations on the topic, I managed to get a few of them to tell me what their fees were. Some, however, were reluctant to divulge this information in an e-mail, suggesting phone or audio conversation instead.

    Zombaio took a good chunk of commission but nothing upfront. I asked around to see if any of the others could match this offer. Apparently, I was asking the impossible.

    It would make perfect logical sense to assume that adult industry clients, to any financial institution, would be considered ‘high risk’. Three major payment processors servicing the adult industry have, in no uncertain terms, pinpointed those fees coming down from Visa and MasterCard.

    Below are three examples, from three separate processors I have contacted: Verotel, NetBilling and OrbitalPay.






    According to these processors, both Visa and Mastercard, are charging ‘high risk’ fees that they must pass on to us. It is, after all, the price we must pay for doing business in this ‘high risk’ industry.

    Or is it?

    I was curious, so I e-mailed Visa myself …




    and here’s the interesting answer I received back …




    So in actuality, these ‘fees’ generously handed down to us by the payment processors, have nothing to do with us or being in the risky adult industry at all. From what I can see, it’s insurance to cover any future refunds of chargebacks from customers. Perhaps just a nice little chunk of change to keep under their pillow. Either way, it’s not going from their hands to Visa or MasterCard’s, it’s going from one hand to the other. Plain and simple. Another day, another adult industry scam. Oh shocker!

    The Era Of Common Sense 


    Sadly, we live in a world where common-sense is obsolete. Seemingly intelligent adults constantly need to be told what to do (& what not to do) and we have become completely reliant on stupid little devices to live our lives. It never fails to amaze me how far we’ve come in our lifetime with advances in technology yet people can’t think anymore. They can’t perform the simple task of paying attention to their surroundings while crossing the street.  They are oblivious to everything going on around them. There was a young woman on a device in the metro in Montreal who wasn’t looking up and actually walked right in between two cars as the metro was leaving. Instead of addressing the problem (the inability to function with a device in hand), the question the media asked was “how can we provide better safety measures so that this sort of thing doesn’t happen again?”Seriously? Maybe they all belong in a bubble so that nothing can touch them and they can continue to give the rest of us something to roll our eyes at every day. Devices are a convenience but we abuse it to the point of selfish stupidity when we drive while texting (how many accidents are caused by that?). I often imagine  a wonderful disaster that knocks out power to all satellites. Seriously, how many of us would even know what to do next? Unfortunately,  we’re not in that predicament. We have to find ways to make life easier for stupid people. What we could (and should) do is lock all signals in public places where any danger can be present. Hockey arenas are no exception. Just a few months ago, PK Subban’s puck flew into the crowd and hit a baby (6 months old, I believe). What a mother was doing bringing a newborn to a hockey game is beyond me. That young and that close to the ice, not smart. They could have chosen seats way higher up where those kind of incidents don’t happen. In any case, the baby appeared to be OK and PK was apologetic about it. Did the stand-up thing and made sure both mother and baby were good. When there’s a baby in your arms, you need to be focused on them, not watching out for flying pucks, so never put yourself in a position where that can happen. This is common frigging sense. Besides locking signals in public places, we also need to lock signals in moving vehicles.

    • Sincerely,  someone from the last era of common sense.

    Praises For The CamGirl Promoter 

    Oh the selfless and tireless efforts this worker bee endures. He bends over backwards sending customers to the girls who struggle to earn a decent living. The camgirl’s happiness is the promoter’s one and only concern. The brightness of her smile makes his day. It brings to mind the image of a unicorn crossing a colorful stream under a brilliant rainbow, light steps from beautiful, glittering waterfalls. The CamGirl Promoter’s generous contribution to her prosperity and wealth is unyielding. His loyalty, commendable, with endless days and nights devoted to marketing her on thousands of social media accounts. Not to mention, the millions of websites dedicated to the camgirl’s success. It’s all for her. The only thing in this for the promoter is the sense of accomplishment and feeling of fulfillment in these selfless acts so that every camgirl becomes rich and happy. By golly, give the men a cigar (and a satin bathrobe, about twelve gold chains of various sizes and an oversized purple hat …)!

      Hello. You have written excellent articles. I’m sorry how cam girls get taken advantage of by both promoters and the men seeing them. Keep smiling:)

    A Camgirl’s View of the World 

    This article has nothing to do with camming, being a camgirl, the frauds in the industry or how I got screwed over. This article covers my views on the world in a nutshell. There is a little of my dark side in here but it isn’t morbid, just realistic.

    The more I look around at the  world today, the more I realize we are all living a big lie. In what way are we thriving as a society? I see a world that has crumbled. Not only have we lost our sense of morality, humanity, pride, justice, but we’ve lost our passion and any grip on reality we ever had. We have evolved, but only in the literal sense of the word, not progressively.

    We now live in a world where, to fit in, we must learn to walk away from negativity, criticism, even if it’s the truth. I fail to understand how refusing to accept criticism will ever allow us to improve ourselves.

    We choose to let everything go rather than stand up for ourselves and for others. Where’s the fight in us? Many forms of mental illness can occur as the result of bottling too much anger/hatred/fear/sadness up inside. But not to worry, there’s a pill for that. Right?

    The only action we take anymore to help others is hitting the record button on our Smart Phones, with the typical selfish motive, hoping the video goes viral on Youtube. Who is that helping?

    We search for quality products but continue to accept the only thing available; made-to-break, overpriced items.

    We claim to be environmentally conscious yet produce things in plastic that are bound for the recycle bins, crushed and used in a process actually that harms the environment. Things that used to be made of glass are now plastic and we’re ‘recycling’ more because they break all the time. If they really wanted to ‘help the environment’, the food industry would use glass containers that consumers would keep for mason jars, drinking glasses, etc. But, that would cost a lot of money to ship because of the weight. So? Charge a little bit more to cover that cost and advertise it as (peanut butter/drinking glass). Nutella used to do that. I have a small glass I still use to fill my lemonade every morning with that used to be a Nutella glass. It’s perfect. I’d buy it again because the small ones are still sold in glass containers, except now they’re too rounded on the bottom. Weird design.

    We say Hollywood only puts out re-makes and then we rush to go see them. We complain that there’s no good entertainment out there anymore yet we watch whatever is on instead of tuning out. There’s always more focus on the red carpet event than the awards ceremony itself.

    We, as consumers, we as viewers, we as the voices of our nations are to blame, not the media or the companies taking advantage of what we’re so easily willing to accept as the norm in society. As long as we sit there and do nothing:

    Product manufacturers will keep raising those prices and driving down quality.

    Hollywood will keep making those remakes. When was the last superhero invented?

    Pharmaceutical companies will keep popping out those pills that are designed to create customers, not cures.

    The FBI will keep chasing those bank robbers and ignoring reports of porn industry fraudsters stealing from millions of American citizens, even though all the proof is there and investigative work already done for them .

    Look at what society has become. Fearful of our own shadows. Afraid to rock the boat so we just accept everything thrown at us.

    There was a time (and I’m a product of the tail end of that generation) where people were educated to think outside the box. Creativity was key. As youngsters, we played with toys that forced us to use our brains and we spent a considerable amount of time playing sports outdoors. There was a lot of that face to face communication. We weren’t programmed, brainwashed by society. Well, not nearly as much as what I’m seeing today. We weren’t afraid of everything. We fought the good fight, rocked the boat and weren’t apologetic for it. We exercised our rights and used our passion to create change. There were generations of people with goals, passion and a desire to leave their mark in the world. Now, it’s just about chasing money because that is the only thing that allows for a truly better quality of life.

    Small businesses competed right alongside the giants and the franchises. You might even say they co-existed. In a consumer-controlled market, big companies had little control. Today, they have all the control. I’ll muster a guess that where we went wrong is in allowing it and golly just look how well they treat us.😉

    In closing, I’ll leave you with some quotes I love. Einstein said “education is not the learning of facts but the training of the mind to think”, “the person who reads too much and uses his brain too little will fall into lazy habits of thinking” and “imagination is more important than knowledge”. So true. He also once said, “I fear the day that technology will surpass human interaction. The world will have a generation of idiots.”. He was not wrong.

    This is what we allowed, so this is what we’re going to have to live with. Let’s just sit back and do what we do best – nothing.

    A Response So Obvious 

    This is a follow-up to my previous blog article, where I exposed iFriends/Webpower Inc.’s employee Jaime Hamed for tampering in my account settings and transferring money from my account into someone else’s. Someone who just happens to live in her hometown of Pennsylvania, according to an online trace of that ssn number. Oh but I’m sure that’s just a really odd coincidence. Yeah, that’s it. Coincidence.

    In the days and weeks following my previous blog article, all this ensued …

    Someone reported me to Facebook for having a photo containing nudity. It was reviewed and deemed not in violation of that rule. Aww shucks. Eh?


    On December 12th, someone whose IP is out of West Palm Beach, Florida replied to my blog article with this comment, “still batt-shit crazy I see”.
    Assuming this person was referring to Jaime, I replied, “I agree. You must have known her a long time.”

    17 days later, I received a notice of Privacy Violation from WordPress.
    Someone had reported me for posting a screenshot of ‘personal information’

    On January 13th (about a month later), the same person replied again, this time under a proxied IP but using the same name. They wrote “I mean you. the time invested in this rambling nonsense and talking to yourself. You need srs meds.”

    So, let me get this right. I need meds after exposing a fraud by an internet
    porn company I worked for? Am I reading this correctly? Pretty arrogant if you ask me but oddly amusing.

    The comments are all here.

    10 days later, they decided to reply to a previous blog article of mine using a different name and e-mail address but under the exact same proxied IP.

    They didn’t reply to me specifically but this time to a comment left by another user. Under the assumption this user was me, they wrote “Too bad you are amanda. still the same since the studio days.”. It wasn’t me. This really was someone else who wrote that. The outright accusation showed me just how paranoid this person was though.

    They certainly are relentless and yes, let’s discuss ‘investment of time’, and who’s spending all their time reading my little blog. While I’m flattered someone devotes all their energy and time to little me, hanging on my every word, I don’t believe they are anything more than a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Truth be told, they are only there to perform damage control, not what they portray themselves as. No one person can be that adamant about defending every little thing I write online about a porn company that defrauds people.

    Another of their personas online goes by the handle Artlessly Creative and is
    an even greater defender of iFriends/Webpower Inc.. Isn’t it interesting how much time this person has to devote to little me with my little blog? So yes, please, let’s discuss ‘investment of time’.

    Never a nice thing to say. Or productive. Or intelligent. Or useful. Just defensive. Often insulting.

    It’s pretty clear this is a company whose employees perform more damage control than any other business function. The true markings a master fraudster is behind this.

    How The Porn Industry Banks (Part 3) 

    This is the final installment of my series about how the porn industry banks. In this, I present some examples of how confusion is created within the system and how the affiliates are taken advantage of.

    Affiliates drive traffic to the site for a commission or pay per click, depending on the contract they signed. Regardless of this, the system tracks all activity related to clicks, sign-ups, navigation of the site and sales so that the affiliate is properly paid.

    If the customer cancels his account for any reason, payments stop going to the affiliate. If he closes his account and creates a new one, he is technically no longer the affiliate’s customer. The site no longer has to pay the affiliate. The payoff is especially sweet where customers with elaborate spending habits are concerned. That type of behaviour isn’t unheard of in our industry. How easy would it be to close and re-open an account? Create any little reason for the big spender customer to want to contact the site. The site then offers to, under the guise of ‘fixing the problem’, create him a new account entirely. Old account is gone, new account created. Just like that. That’s how easy it would be to eliminate the cost of having to pay affiliates. Pretty convenient. This can apply to any customer brought in by an affiliate.

    With this in mind, have a look at the screenshots below that I captured from the iFriends (V2) platform. In the first screenshot, I detail how relevant information is categorized in the customer cards; a basic overview. If you look closely, the numbers their system gave didn’t add up. Other oddities occurred, such as customers with multiple accounts, whose amounts don’t add up and instances where I was not paid for fan club sales and renewals. These are just a few examples. I can’t possibly show them all in one blog article. It would take too long. Keep in mind that I was used to help ‘test’, ‘break down’ and ‘report’ my findings to the site. These cards were only accessible from iFriends v2  (2008) but held information from several years prior, on the original iFriends platform.



    Below is a screenshot of a member who, according to iFriends’ system, joined the site on February 04, 2010. He spent between $100.00 and $500.00 on live videochat with me. Look at the next screenshot, one day later. His screenname is different (a “2” was added to the end of it) and through clicking a link provided to view “previous visits under other screennames with same e-mail or payment information” screenshotted over on the left of the image below, I was able to see his original handle listed but no indication of the previous amount spent in videochat. So his new account was attached (through this card) to his old one, yet the money spent drops off with the next handle. If it is under the same account, then why is it listed as such but the money spent disappears? What happens to the affiliate’s share, the person who should be paid for getting this member to sign up to the site in the first place? There is a certain convenience to the way data is logged on this site … and the way much of it is manipulated, not to mention extremely confusing and next to impossible to explain. You will need to look at the screenshots very carefully to understand fully what I am talking about.


    aguy169 aguy1692


    Here’s where the plot thickens. A third account is created on the same day as the previous one was. To recap; he originally signed up under AGUY169, then the very next day, it changed to AGUY1962. On the same day, changed it again to AGUY1963. If you click the link atop the original card, a window will pop up displaying more information on that customer. See left portion of screenshot under the header “Previous Visit(s) under other Screennames, with same email or payment information“. It shows only his original handle, not his most recent one prior. It should show all of his handles there but it doesn’t.




    Here’s the next one … in proper sequence, of course … (AGUY1964) with the same information.


    aguy1694I was paid for his videochat session on (report generated) February 22, 2010. In our minute-by-minute stats report, an asterisk appears beside each amount that gets collected by the site. We are only paid for the amounts the site is able to collect on. Initially, his amount cleared. Note: his charge in the stats report (screenshot below) for videochat sales didn’t appear under “AGUY196” but did under “AGUY1964”. Look at the screenshots I posted above, of the cards. That charge only appeared on “AGUY196”. Stats report and cards are not consistent.


    Strangely enough, after I was paid for this, the asterisk that was once there, had disappeared from the stats report. There were no refunds or chargebacks for this transaction.




    Here is another one, grey1beard, who spends money, both as a fan club member and in videochat sales, whose handle gets changed to grey_beard. Look carefully at the dates and handles.



    Below is another instance where the number “2” is inserted at the end of the member’s handle when a second account is created.

    rich877 rich8772



    The screenshot below shows a member who joined my fan club 3 times the same day. In fact, his signups were under 3 similar names and all within an approximate 2-hour span. This is not a member forgetting his password and creating a new account. These accounts are not showing any connection to each other whatsoever in their cards. So 3 separate members all decided to join my fan club in the same 2-hour span, choosing the same name, all except for one little digit at the end? How incredibly dense one must be to believe that. See screenshots below.






    To summarize, I’ve shown, in part 1, how iFriends take advantage of camgirls (also known as chathosts, hosts, models, performers). In part 2, I showed the usefulness of those so-called ‘glitches’ and the overbilling of members. In part 3, I have shown how they close members accounts to avoid having to pay affiliates. This completes my 3-part series on how this one site in particular banks.

    Stay updated with my blog because over the next few weeks I will be uncovering some doozies involving employees of Webpower Inc (iFriends), that’s sure to raise some eyebrows.

      This looks a lot like a money laundering scheme and is clearly proof of the fraud perpetrated by Webpower Inc./Ifriends. You have to wonder how much money is paid by Webpwer Inc./Ifriends to keep the Florida State and US law enforcement from investigating this fraud! It also make you wonder how stupid the IRS can be , not to fully audit these crooks. Is it possible that our US law enforcement (FBI/DOJ) is so concentrated on terrorism that they allow fraud, even when reported, to run rampant in our country?
