    Why is Flirt4free "banning" hundreds of thousands if not millions of people in the USA from using the site?

    Its an adult video chat site, people spend money on cam models. Some of the zip codes blacklisted there have high income, yet Flirt4Free could just randomly ban someone from one of those areas for no reason.

    It might be due to high % of refunds in those areas as well...

    It looks like models can block certain regions and entire countries to protect their privacy. Maybe those are the regions they requested to have blocked.

    Just a guess.

    I've thought that as well, but the vast majority of the camming industry lets models block the regions. And if you are going to be blocking regions where alot of cam models are romania would be one of the non authorized regions in their t and c.

    Eh. Idk bro. Really can't help you. They may just hate those regions. Maybe they have laws that affect their business or sommat, idk.

    Interestingly my region isn't on there. That's why I came to that conclusion.

    The only thing that I can really come up with, is that they hired some wannabe lawyer to write their t+c and come up with a prohibited areas list.

    Or they realized that certain areas were not profitable and hired a legit lawyer to make sure they could exclude those areas.
