Tinder Bans Student Who Ruthlessly Scammed Money From A Ton Of Unsuspecting Men


On Monday, we posted about Maggie Archer, a 20-year-old student from St. Louis, Missouri and literally the most savvy businessperson we have ever heard about.

I mean, how many people do you know who earn money off of Tinder? And like... not in a sense that they're, uh... (how do I put this delicately?) selling themselves?


Maggie the Scammer wrote in her bio,

Send me $5, see what happens.

What happened after men she matched with sent her the five buckaroos? Maggie unmatched them.

Now, I've met two exes off of Tinder, and a handful of people I have shown my boudoir, so I appreciate the service. Had I known I could be getting paid as well as getting laid, I would have played my cards differently.

About one in five guys sent Maggie money, and she's received money from more than 20 matches in less than a week.


That's $100 in a week, which is nothing to bat an eye at when you're a college student.

However, Tinder is a fucking buzzkill and apparently hates business savviness.

Apparently, Tinder told BuzzFeed News,

Requesting money from other Tinder users violates our terms of service.




Therefore, Maggie has been officially removed from Tinder. So what, Tinder? Maggie can't even find love and five bucks now?


Maggie admits since her tweet regarding her devious plan went viral, she already deleted her account because the "purpose for doing this was defeated."

That said, I guess it isn't totally cool a bunch of dudes lost $5, but really, what did they expect?

Personally, curiosity would get the best of me as well, and I'd probably send $5 too. I wouldn't even be mad -- I would be pretty impressed.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
