Although scams happen on both sides of the camming equation – from members AND models, I will focus on the ways you can be scammed as a camgirl, and ways to prevent it, because unfortunately there are a lot of people wanting to take advantage of newbie and inexperienced models who are just entering the industry.
AGENCIES/STUDIOS/PROMOTERS: There is NO need for anyone starting out in camming to be signing up with an agency or a studio. Please remember this very important tip! You should be signing up with the cam sites directly, without anyone else’s interference, as these studios bind you to a contract and take a percentage of your earnings, for supposed “promotion” and assistance. You can do your OWN promotion on Twitter, Instagram, Manyvids, etc. There are a ton of avenues to bring in traffic, and none should include an agency or a promoter. You may also encounter some Twitter promoters who will ask you for naked photos or even free Skype shows(!) in order to promote you online. Don’t fall for this tactic and don’t do anything that makes you uncomfortable. Be completely independent. Take a look at this post to try out some sites and sign up with them directly and read up on some beginners guides to get started. Studios cannot give you any extra advice that you won’t find yourself online.
MEMBERS WHO SCAM: Unfortunately, there are a lot of members who frequent cam sites who are just looking for a freebie and have no desire to pay for your services, ever. At best, they will be merely annoying and ask for a free show, but at worst, they will promise to tip you or pay you with Amazon gift card or PayPal after you’ve done a show and never do, or will retract that payment. You should approach anyone offering to pay you *too* much for a Skype show with skepticism. It will almost always be over Skype, since they want to take you away from a cam site that would require them to tip for a show. They will always promise to tip you right after the show and then disappear and block you. OR they may pretend that they’ve sent a payment (such as sending a fake Amazon gift card email) or sending money through PayPal. With PayPal, that payment can always be reversed, so please only accept it from a member that you’ve known for a long time and one you trust. The bottom line is, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. There are so many stories of girls being scammed this way: by giving a long, explicit show and never getting the payment. So, be very careful with Skype and only accept to do a show once the tokens have been deposited to your account, as that is the best method to ensure you’ll get paid.
MEMBERS WHO STALK: There is another type of member who will become enamored with you (in an unhealthy way) and try to get as much information from you as he can by pretending to be your friend. This can be done in a few ways. They can straight up ask you about things like where you live, what sort of events you go to in your city, etc. by acting friendly and curious. Be vigilant about answering these types of questions, as you don’t know how this information can be used and by whom. Read my post about camming safety and security for specific tips. What these members can also do is send you links to supposed funny images or videos that will lead them to get your specific IP address, which will reveal your city and potentially your approximate location in the city. They can then put these pieces of information together to find out who you are and then harass, blackmail, or stalk you.
Being a cam girl is not the easiest job in the world, because it comes with challenges like these and people who will want to take advantage of your inexperience. Be extra careful and use common sense, and when situations feel weird, never be afraid to say No.
Unlike Snapchat that doesn’t have a built-in option for you to receive payments from members (leaving you to organize it all yourself through offline tips, google wallet, etc), OnlyFans is created to be the better version of Snapchat and Periscope in one!
You can send photos, interact with PAID members (Hallelujah! No more “fans” who don’t support your work), stream video and receive additional tips! YOU set the price of your monthly membership ($10, $20? More?) and OnlyFans will do the billing work for you without you having to think about, and you get 80% of the profit, which is a really great payout percentage.
Additionally, if you refer other camgirls, you will get 5% of their LIFETIME income! That is a very generous referral perk! Another great feature of OnlyFans is that they do daily payouts, which is amazing considering how few adult sites do. The income potential is truly endless and depends on how many fans/members you have and how much you are wiling to promote it on twitter or on cam. Check out a some examples from a few models:
Snapchat vs OnlyFans
A lot of girls have been switching over from Snapchat, and for good reason. These days, many guys expect sexy and naked snaps for absolutely free, and will never come to your chat room and actually tip you. Why give it away for free when you can make great money from it every month? It’s such a great semi-passive income stream, that I think every cam girl should at least consider it. The interface is really simple and it takes a few minutes to sign up and start making money.
Cam girls who have been particularly successful with OnlyFans are those that do financial domination, but you don’t have to be a domme to be converting unpaying fans into premium, paying ones! In fact, I see OnlyFans outshining Snapchat and leaving it very far behind. No better time to try it out than now!
It should come as excellent news for those who value their privacy and want to avoid unnecessary transaction fees when buying tokens that more and more cam sites are starting to accept digital currency along with other standard payment methods.
Bitcoin and camming is a match made in heaven! Many members would agree that having transactions stay private and not show up on bank statements or PayPal records is a really great perk. This way you can spoil your favorite girl all you want without leaving any trace or having anyone find out. 😉
Here are the cam sites currently accepting Bitcoin as one of their token purchase options:
– Click to Visit!
Credit Card (Visa/Mastercard/Discover)
Epoch (Credit Card)
– Click to Visit!
I’ll be interesting to see how many more cam sites jump on the Bitcoin bandwagon!
I didn’t think it could be possible, but this month proved everyone otherwise – You CAN beat the incredible 999,999 token tip, which was bestowed upon LocaLoca_ last year. LocaLoca_ lucked out again and received a jaw-dropping 1,200,000 token tip (yes, 1.2 MILLION tokens) as the Miss MFC competition was drawing to a close. It you’re curious about the dollar amount, that would be $60,000 USD. Not bad at all!
To add to the insanity of this month, that massive tip by Mr. Anonymous was STILL not enough for Loca to secure the top spot on the charts. CrazyM_ managed to beat thousands of girls vying for the crown by receiving multiple GIGANTIC tips (999,999tk, 99,999tk and many more). With the help of some amazing and dedicated tippers, she was able to become Miss MFC for the 3rd month in a row! Now, that’s quite the achievement, and she is also the first model to do so.
Who are the Top Chaturbate Camgirls?
While it’s hard to definitively say who the “top” Chaturbate models are and to figure out how much individual girl may earn on Chaturbate, there is a way to estimate it. Unlike MFC, Chaturbate doesn’t do a token-based monthly ranking contest, but we can take a look at the highest single tips received by CB girls as well as their number of followers (which is a good measure for room traffic and number of tippers) to have an approximate measure of their ranks. So…
Here is the TOP 20 List based on the amount of followers each girl has. Click on their names to go to their room! Feel free to add your favorite girl in comments!
