    Report for ShagLocal.co.uk review

    The landing page of ShagLocal.co.uk looks good on the first impression. The online dating platform advertises with some erotic content and a free registration. Plus we see some profile pictures right on the landing page, so we could assume that the website is filled with exciting members. But it turns out that it is nothing more than a cheeky scam.

    After the free registration the new user will receive a free basic-membership which is useless. With this kind of membership it is not possible to read or write messages. But also after the registration the new user will receive a lot of messages of other members. Regard to the reviews on the internet the members of the platform are a fake and operated by fake operators to entice the user to buy a paid membership which is a subscription trap.

    Details on the ShagLocal.co.uk review

    The online dating platform ShagLocal.co.uk looks like a reputable casual dating website on the first view. But the more time we spend on the portal the more hints we found that this is a rip off. The landing page mentions that the registration is for free. But we do not find clear information about costs after the registration. So we could assume that the use of the portal is for free as well.

    But this is by far not the reality. The portal ShagLocal.co.uk charges a lot of money for its use and even worse the subscription for the paid premium-membership is a trap. The dating platform is a scam as the subscription will extend automatically.

    This important detail is mentioned in the terms and conditions

    “When you take out a subscription, it will normally be set up to automatically renew on a regular basis. You can cancel these automatic renewals at any time before we take the next payment through our Site or by contacting us.”

    So first of all the website is a subscription rip off but what is about the profile pictures on the landing? Regard to the reviews on the internet all members of the website are a fake and operated by fake operators. The operator does not mention fake operators or fake profiles in the terms and conditions.  But while our research we found a few reports that the website uses fake profiles and a fake chat to entice the user to pay for a membership.

    Last but not least is that ShagLocal.co.uk is operated by the Venntro Media Group Ltd. This company runs a huge dating network and is located in Slough, United Kingdom. The operator gets a lot of critics on the internet because it shares the user’s private data all over its network. And as this operator runs more than thousands of dating portals this is clearly not an advantage but a terrible leaking data protection.

    The sharing of the personal data is mention on the landing page

    To maximise your chances of finding success, we've enhanced the member area of Shag Local to include members with all interests and characteristics. You can still use our search settings to find exactly who you're looking for.”

    That means your personal profile plus all personal information will be displayed at every other dating website of the network of the Venntro Media Group Ltd.

    The conclusion from our ShagLocal.co.uk review

    The online dating website ShagLocal.co.uk is a subscription trap and it belongs to a huge network of dating websites. The operator receives a lot of critics on the internet because of a terrible leaking data protection. Plus we found some reviews about a fake chat with fake profiles that are operated by fake operators.
