ShagInUK.com offers a promising matching system that guarantees compatibility between the users and their matches. Using fake profiles, the operator can easily find or create the fitting partner for the users. Unfortunately, we could not find any reviews about the operator or this website, so we gave it ago and registered ourselves.
Right after signing up we immediately get approached by many women who visit our profile and send charming messages. It seems rather peculiar to us that many female users show great interest in us and propose sexual encounters. Especially, since the lack of a profile picture and the limited information given on our profile, would not make our own profile very appealing. Some of these profiles let us know that they are living nearby, when according to their profiles, they live hundreds of miles away.
We finally encounter the following remark which mentions the fictitious profiles in the terms and conditions:
“14. ONLINE EMISSARY program: shaginuk.com UTILIZES VIRTUAL PROFILES THAT DO NOT CORRESPOND TO ACTUAL MEMBERS:”
These fictitious profiles are a tool that the operator uses to make a decent profit. Only a paid subscription makes it possible for the user to become a premium-member and chat with other members, fictitious or not. The memberships can further be divided into different tiers, the highest tier membership has the most access to content on this website.
In order to cancel the subscription, the user must notify the operator 5 days in advance. Although ShagInUK.com is not a complete subscription rip-off, the cancellation period should always be kept in mind. If the user does not cancel in time, he must pay for an additional month.
ShagInUK.com is operated by Freesia Ltd., based in Shrewsbury, in the UK. We were not able to find any reviews about the website or the company that runs it. Our research has helped us to get a better understanding of ShagInUK.com and how it uses a fake chat scam to deceive the users.
