The location-based app shows users only the hundred or so other users closest to them, theoretically making it difficult for spammers to target users outside their immediate vicinity.
But the Grindr spambots manage to contact users from 6,000 to 7,000 miles away from the United States.
Some of the most provocative profiles on Grindr aren’t men at all, but spambots designed to lure credulous users into turning over their credit-card information.

As a result of a 2008 settlement with the state of New Jersey, which sued the company for discrimination, men and women seeking same-sex matches were redirected from e Harmony to an affiliate Web site,
The proposed settlement would require e Harmony to display its gay and lesbian dating services more prominently.
The popular e Harmony online dating service will have to do more to welcome gays and lesbians to its site, under a proposed settlement of a class-action lawsuit announced Tuesday.
The Pasadena company, which says it uses a scientifically developed questionnaire to help people find "relationships that last," didn't offer gay, lesbian and bisexual matchmaking services on its primary Web site, e Harmony.com, until last spring.
A new report by the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau has found that last year, singles were conned out of £39 million by fraudsters they’d met on dating sites and apps.
Con artists are increasingly creating fake online profiles and tricking people on dating sites into handing over often large sums of money.Earlier this year, users of the popular gay hookup and dating app Grindr started seeing a sharp increase in the number of attractive men saying hello to them.Handsome, muscled, and stripped to the waist, the men introduced themselves with a handful of stock greetings.One of the most common techniques is to build up trust with the person by messaging for weeks or even months before suddenly having an emergency - the fake person being mugged but their daughter needing urgent surgery, for example - and asking for money.But then they suddenly need money for rent too, then food, then medical fees, and it can quickly escalate.I have a head full of ideas, and plans on how to make those ideas a reality, but at times I become overwhelmed with the work it takes to follow through and complete the task.
