There's going to be a lot of people trying this one on Tinder now. 

In an interview with Buzzfeed News, Archer said, "It's really a foolproof plan, because I'm not actually promising anything, I just say 'See what happens' ... a surprising amount of men take the bait."

The college student added, "Some men get creepy and assume if they offer a lot more, like hundreds, something will actually happen, which of course it doesn't. I figured it was too funny not to share. Also, I wanted to give more women this idea to share the wealth."

The brunette beauty explained that she initially updated her bio as a joke. But before long, around 1 in 5 guys who asked about the cryptic message were sending her $5.

However, it appears that Archer's money-making operation is being shut down. A spokesperson for the dating app told Buzzfeed that"requesting money from other Tinder users violates our terms of service," and that those who do will be removed from the platform. 

Archer confirmed that she did, in fact, receive an email from Tinder suspending her account. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted.
