Cheaterville: Will This Website Tell You If Your Partner Is Cheating?

If you believe the adage “once a cheater, always a cheater”, you’re going to love this site. (You’re probably also a little too suspicious for your own good. Just sayin’.)

The website Cheaterville.com purports to keep tabs on two-timers by collecting info on the details of their cheating ways. With a tagline that reads, “Don’t be the last to know,” the site is angled as a sort of public service for the overly paranoid.

(LIST: Top 10 Expendable Girlfriends)

The site was launched on Valentine’s Day (of course!) this year and reportedly has already had “millions of viewers” searching for cheaters.  Users can peruse mini-profiles of men and women who’ve cheated complete with their names, ages, hometowns and a photo, not to mention the sordid details of their indiscretions. Of course these profiles were not created by the cheaters themselves — because who would do that? — but by anonymous sources, likely their spurned partners. So you should be wary of exaggerations.

Now if you’re curious to know if the lad or lady you’re currently into has a sketchy past, all you do is enter their name into the site’s search engine and see if they have a philandering profile. (Nothing says healthy relationship like an Internet search, right?) The idea is that if nothing turns up, you have a winner. But how well does this database actually work? We searched a few recognizable names to see if the site churned up a profile:

Eliot Spitzer: Has a profile, but it’s notably lacking in the salacious details department. It actually reads more like a Wikipedia entry. Bor-ring.

John Edwards: Has a profile and reading it will likely make you angry at him all over again.

Kobe Bryant: Has a profile but it was definitely written by a fan: The phrase “GUY CODE” is used.

Tiger Woods: Not one but two profiles. The internet has this one covered.

Anthony Weiner: No profile. Now depending on your definition of cheating — more than a few people would consider sexting to be an act of infidelity — this could be an accurate result or huge blind spot for the site. However, NewsFeed, like Huma, will let it slide.

Arnold Schwarzenegger: No profile. Really, anonymous uploaders? We expected more from you.

Results: Our completely unscientific sample resulted in four out of six accurate searches; seems like good odds, but then consider that each have confessed to their indiscretions publicly. So perhaps you can’t rely on the internet to tell you whether or not your partner’s the faithful sort. Then again, there’s always the mean-spirited entertainment factor of the site so we guess not all is lost. (via Marie Claire)

Addendum: Site founder James McGibney has reached out to NewsFeed to let us know that Anthony Weiner and Arnold Schwarzenegger do have their own profiles in the site’s Celebs section. Our faith in the Internet has been restored. Our faith in relationships, however… not so much.

I was dating a sociopath, cheater and lier and he cheated on me numerous times. I let him get away with it the first 2. But once I going out he was sleeping with his own cousin, I confronted them and I broke up with him. He would accuse me of having affairs and would go through my phone all the time, but would lock his and never allow me to go into his. His name is Carlos Berumen and is on many dating sites in case anyone wants to look him up and make others aware. He now on FB, Zoosk, Okupid, plenty of fish his profile is (suntise1510)I wasted my time on a man that was so evil and cruel. Once in the relationship I found out he was still married to his second baby mama. He had children with 3 woman. He cheated on his first with with her sister in law and took off and married her and had 3 kids with her. His children from

The first and second wife are siblings and cousins. He cheated on all 3 and that's why they left him. It's so sad that his own mother and sisters condone this behavior and allow him to go live with them and keep doing harm to many woman. He lies on his dating sites and puts up old pics of himself and says he is single. I can only hope that girls will become more aware of this horrid person and his intentions. He is a total sociopath. He is on cheaterville'

i have had an online relationship for almost 3 yrs with this man named Ammar Ogli and he is a cheater. He is a romance  scammer. he goes from woman to woman to extort money from them or get them to help him get out of the country he is in. He has never paid for a single thing himself. women have paidfor his needs and all his travels. Must be nice huh!!! He now just got a German woman to pay for his trip to Germany which is where she lives. clearly he is using her. He only goes for woman who have money. He is a gold digger,. He screwed me and another woman i know. I hope he gets caught and i wish there was a way to punish him or at least let this woman in germany know what he is up too. he starts up all these new fb accts so one finds out about the other. slick of him.
