SeniorShag.co.uk claims to be the perfect place to meet fun-loving senior singles who are seeking new experiences, dates, flirts, and relationships. According to the landing page, the portal is a safe and secure platform with friendly customer service and a large community of open-minded 50+ singles.
To find out whether the site can live up to these claims and promises, we search the internet for user reviews and study the terms and conditions thoroughly. Despite positive first impressions, we cannot recommend anyone register here. It is just a cheeky rip-off.
As advertised, the registration is free. However, to get full access to the chat feature to get in touch with other members, users need a paid membership subscription. These subscriptions are not only rather pricey but also pose a risk of ending up in a long-lasting subscription trap. They renew automatically and must be terminated by the user to stop regular payments. Unfortunately, the cancellation policies are pretty complicated, and the site’s operator has got a bad reputation and cannot be considered trustworthy. Hence, we strongly advise you to refrain from signing up.
Besides the potential dangers that come with the subscriptions, there is another reason to stay away from becoming a member of SeniorShag.co.uk. According to the terms and conditions, the site contains so-called “test dating profiles”, which are created by employed fake chat operators. Supposedly, they are created to test the functionality and to improve the user experience. But in fact, they are merely used to lure users into quickly becoming paying subscribers. Since none of the site’s “members” can be trusted, chatting here seems completely pointless. Real-life dates or genuine connections seem extremely unlikely.
The following excerpt can be found in the terms and conditions
From time to time, the company employees (or employees of its parent or affiliated companies) may create test dating profiles for the purpose of checking and testing the functionality of our website and service to improve the quality and user experience for its users.
SeniorShag.co.uk is operated by Augustine Ltd, from the Isle of Man. This company is known for their scams and has already received several negative reviews for some of its websites on the internet.
