by scuffer12345 / February 10, 2010 9:05 PM PST

There are real ones and there scams that is why i am on CNET to help me find which are the real ones versus the ones that are scams
check out epic.org, myinternetdoorman, idology those are real sites for sure but are used for companies and business

what about safestsurfer?
or
craigslistsafe

CNET published an article;
Credit cards are not valid for age verification but in reality the US government thought they were since banks don't give credit cards to fake people

Just a short comment by cnet or valid members on how to tell a real age verification site versus a scam

to be honest craigslistsafe = seems real?

At 52 I am having a hard time proving who I am and how old I am to online women, most believe me but some need verification and I can not blame them lots of wierdos online.

Age Verification

IDScan.net specializes in age verification with their app VeriScan. However, in terms of doing it over the internet, I would recommend Zoominfo.

In response to the 52 y.o. guy's message above, have had a heck of a time with third world based spambots from Craigslist Personals trying to rope-a-dope me into this age verification con, all I can say is after having been on Craigslist for a week and a half, I've had anywhere from 30-50 of these kind of bogus verification sites pushed at me, and every one of them are scams, it is also long since proven by security experts that a credit card doesn't verify anything in terms of majority age status or a clean criminal history. Just thought you should know.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
