The online dating platform ShagMee.com offers free registration for everyone. Also, the offer of the site does sound convincing. This site advertises with erotic content on the homepage. So, we assume that the website is a casual dating site. We also read some general information about the site. According to those details, the members´ pool is full of open-minded members. The community on the site seem to be chatty. As we see it, it will only take a short time before first contact is made and the first offers of a date will start coming in.
No actual members
ShagMee.com advertises with a lot of good offers, including free registration and hot casual dates in no time. The landing page is full of erotic content. Of course, that looks great and more than promising. But it is all a cheeky trick to lure users into a scam. The images on the homepage do not show actual members of the site. They are made up. Those profiles are fake and show fictional people. Also, the free registration is a misleading piece of information as well. High costs will occur after the registration. A user must pay to send messages.
All that makes this website more than suspicious. Misleading advertising is a first sign of an unreliable portal. However, there is more. The profiles in the members´ pool are fake as well. Those fictional profiles are controlled by fake chat operators. They manage the fake profiles to entertain users. “Entertainment” is a common synonym for a rip-off with a fake chat. In a nutshell, all profiles are fake and it is not possible to meet real people. Also, the actual purpose is not entertainment, but to increase the income of the site’s operator.
The following is stated in the terms and conditions
The Company operates system profiles (i.e. profiles connected to Accounts which have been created by the Company and which are either operated by contractors of the Company who impersonate the persons portrayed in such profiles or by a system designed to interact with users) and expressly reserves the right to chat with users through such system profiles in order to enhance the users’ entertainment experience. Physical contact with individuals behind such system profiles is strictly prohibited.
High costs for an unsatisfying service
It all starts right after the registration. At this point, a new member will receive many messages from other profiles. Those profiles are fake, but not marked as such. Also, the fake chat operators will take the first step in a conversation. However, they will not identify as a fictional person. In a nutshell, users do not know about moderation, which makes it a scam. Fake chat operators will encourage users to reply again and again. For every sent message, high costs will occur. However, real dates will never happen.
On the internet, this site has a poor reputation. We found many negative reviews from former users. In a nutshell, we only found complaints about a fake chat scam. We did not find any positive reviews about this site. This website offers too much and does not keep one promise. The goal of the site is to increase the income of the operator and nothing else.
