Send Me $5 and See What Happens is a prank on Tinder in which women request that matches send them $5, and then immediately un-match following receipt of the money. While initially started by college student Maggie Archer, the practice was subsequently adopted by other Tinder users.


On March 22nd, 2017, Archer tweeted screenshots[1] of her scam in action, calling it "the best possible use for Tinder." Her tweet gained 8,700 retweets and 21,000 likes (collage of the screenshots as posted on 4chan shown below).

Many on Twitter praised Archer's scam as genius and attempted to imitate the prank.

The post went viral after Buzzfeed[2] posted about it on March 27th. After that, several other outlets covered Archer's scam, including Men's Health,[3] Refinery29,[4] ThoughtCatalog,[5] and more. One Reddit user CowsGiveUsMilk_[6] posted a thread to /r/Tinder chronicling his experience with a person attempting the same scam, gaining 613 upvotes (shown below).

Once Tinder became aware of the trending scam, it began banning users attempting it, as requesting money violates Tinder's terms of service.[7]

This girl is kind of a piece of shit (all scammers are) , but the guys are idiots and would have fell for something worse eventually…
Wow, actually, now that I put it that way, this girl might be the closest thing to a beneficial scammer out there. All these guys lost was $5 and a bit of their dignity. If they can take this experience and learn caution from it, then I guess that's what really matters. It's better to learn to not fall for scams by listening to the many cautionary tales out there, but I guess some people just need a little more personal experience to get it through their heads.
