ShagBook.com advertises with over 2 million members worldwide. We have strong concerns that this statement is true. We suspect several heavily faked profiles and ‘honeypots’ on this website. This is also the impression of many former members of the dating portal ShagBook.com, which is managed by Venntro Media Group Ltd., from Wales in the UK. The large number of pictures of members who all have model qualities already make us cautious. Why should these women be looking for a date? And why on earth should they write to us every minute, even though we do not even have a profile picture? It smells very fishy!
The registration process on ShagBook.com is not complicated and does not take long. There are just 7 required fields before you are redirected to the main members’ area. The page has a responsive web design and can be used on any laptop, computer or smartphone. An application is not yet available.
The main features on ShagBook.com
Winks (very suspicious to get winks from supermodels within a few minutes)
Local search (only available after you have joined -part of the hook scam)
The operator uses the old trick with animators and moderated chats to encourage the naive new members to upgrade their basic membership. Because, only with an upgrade are all the functions for a smooth chat possible in the first place. Memberships should also be treated with caution, as they renew automatically and are difficult to cancel. We read about frustrated users who seek legal representation to get out of this dilemma.
The operator is also well-known for leaking and sharing your personal data on about 3,000 different websites. They use moderators/animators, to encourage conversations and premium memberships.
