Unveiling OnlyFans Management Scams

In recent years, the rise of platforms like OnlyFans has revolutionized the way content creators engage with their audience and monetize their work. However, this newfound opportunity has also given rise to a troubling trend: OnlyFans management scams. These scams prey on creators’ desire for success and financial stability, promising management services that often end up being fraudulent or exploitative. In this blog, we delve into the world of OnlyFans management scams, explore common tactics used by scammers, and discuss how creators can protect themselves in this digital landscape.


Understanding OnlyFans Management Scams

OnlyFans management scams typically involve individuals or companies offering to manage a creator’s account in exchange for a fee or a percentage of their earnings. These services often promise to increase followers, improve content quality, and boost earnings through marketing strategies. However, many of these promises turn out to be empty, and creators may find themselves in a worse position than before they hired the management services.


Common Tactics Used by Scammers

False Promises: Scammers lure creators with promises of rapid growth, increased earnings, and enhanced visibility. They may claim to have insider knowledge or special techniques that can skyrocket a creator’s success on OnlyFans. In reality, these promises are often exaggerated or outright lies designed to attract unsuspecting creators.


High Fees or Revenue Share: Some management services charge exorbitant fees or demand a significant percentage of the creator’s earnings. One recent client we assisted was being charge 70% of her revenue for their services.  That is outrageous!  Creators may be enticed by the promise of success and agree to these terms without fully understanding the implications. This can result in substantial financial losses for the creator, and their content ending up on the dark web.


Lack of Transparency: Scammers often operate with a lack of transparency regarding their methods and results. They may provide vague reports or refuse to disclose key information about how they are managing the creator’s account. This lack of transparency makes it difficult for creators to assess the effectiveness of the management services.


Content Theft: In more sinister cases, scammers may engage in theft by taking control of a creator’s account and using their content without permission. This not only violates the creator’s intellectual property rights but can also damage their reputation and credibility.  A recent client was unable to take down her account because the management scammers controlled the email that was associated with our client’s account.  OnlyFans was contacted and they did nothing to help this college student regain control of her content. As a result, our client needed the assistance of a well-versed intellectual property attorney.


Protecting Yourself as a Creator from OnlyFans Management Scams

Do Your Research: Before engaging any management services, thoroughly research the company or individual offering the services. Look for reviews, testimonials, and feedback from other creators to gauge their credibility and track record. More importantly, seek the advice of an attorney before you sign a one-sided contract with any management company, especially if the company is not US based.


Read the Fine Print: Always review contracts and agreements carefully before signing up for management services. Pay attention to fee structures, revenue share percentages, and any clauses that may impact your rights as a creator.


Seek Recommendations: Ask fellow creators for recommendations or referrals to reputable management services. Trusted recommendations can help you avoid falling victim to scams.


Maintain Control: This point cannot be stressed enough. Retain control over your account and content at all times. Avoid giving out login credentials or granting excessive permissions to third parties. Never let an outside company have access to an account that is attached to your banking information.


Stay Vigilant: Be vigilant for red flags such as unrealistic promises, high-pressure sales tactics, and a lack of transparency. If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.


Report Suspected OnlyFans Management Scams: If you encounter suspicious or fraudulent activity, report it to OnlyFans and request an FBI investigation. By taking action, you can help protect yourself and other creators from falling victim to scams.  The best place to start for reporting this type of fraudulent activity is  with federal agencies since the activity is online.  Read this online material from the Department of Justice to better understand your Intellectual Property rights and how to report criminal activity. We suggest filing a Complaint with the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3).



OnlyFans management scams pose a significant threat to content creators, exploiting their aspirations for success and financial stability. By understanding common scam tactics, staying informed, and taking proactive measures to protect themselves, creators can safeguard their accounts, content, and earnings from fraudulent schemes. As the digital landscape continues to evolve, it is crucial for creators to remain vigilant and empowered in navigating the complexities of platforms like OnlyFans.
