never. I am just irritated with lots of requests like add me as friend and I will rate such and such of yours, add me to COT and i will add you to COT. these are all spammers. they never rate you. Yesterday i saw a guy who always ask to rate. I see his very ordinary reviews have got each about 100 ratings. he just keeps on sending messages to all.

So many people fall for this rubbish when they get a friend request saying that the person will rate 10 of yours if you rate 5 of theirs. It makes me laugh out loud as they're all lying. You can just have a look at their stats to see that they haven't rated anywhere near as many reviews as much as the ratings they have received. I refuse any friend request that asks for ratings with the request. Other people would actually report these directly to Ciao as it's against the rules to directly ask for ratings. It doesn't happen to me as I don't fall for these lies and I know those people might think they're doing well with getting lots of friends really quickly but ultimately their accounts will end up being deleted before payment as Ciao investigates all payment requests carefully before paying out.
