The online dating website SnapLocalz.com advertises with a free registration. This platform appears to be a solid casual dating site. On the landing page we see the image of a good-looking naked woman with only a bed sheet on. On the bottom of the landing page we see the links to the legal information. An imprint is missing. The general information about the operator of the portal is also not provided in the terms and conditions. This not good, and it appears quite untrustworthy to us. The registration seems to be simple and done in a few minutes. The landing page claims that you will find lovers here with no strings, so it appears to make dating easy. Moreover, it seems like this online dating website has got a lot of users, who are active and open-minded for new erotic adventures.
A good first impression
The online dating portal SnapLocalz.com looks good on the first view. But the website does not provide any useful information about the service or the costs on the landing page. That appears to be very untrustworthy to us. An imprint is missing, and the terms and conditions do not contain any information about the site´s operator. However, what we found in the terms and conditions, is the note about the fake chat. According to the information that we read it appears that in the members’ pool there are only fake profiles. Those fake profiles are activated by fake operators that entice the user to a chat for which the user must pay.
A fake chat with a high price
If a new member wants to get started and have a conversation with another user of the site, a paid membership is needed. That membership will be offered in form of a subscription which will extend automatically. Usually, that does not have to be something bad, but in this case, it is part of a scam. It appears that the subscription is a trap. Even if the automatic renewal of the subscription was not a scam, this website still is a terrible choice. The members’ pool is filled with fake profiles which are activated by fake operators.
This is mentioned in the terms and conditions
“THIS SITE UTILIZES FANTASY PROFILES IDENTIFIED AS FANTASY CUTIES. You comprehend, acknowledge, and accept that some of the profiles listed on the Site may be operated by our Site or third party contractors and are fictitious.”
The fake operators will get in touch with a new member and will entice them to pay for a subscription. That works by sending a lot of messages to a new member´s profile. A paid membership is needed to read and to send messages. So, the many messages will entice the user to pay for a membership. Then a customer gets charged a lot of money to have a chat with a fake profile that shows a fictional person. A date in real-life is not possible.
Our research on the internet
We did some further research on the internet and found a lot of negative reviews about the site. Many former users of the portal claim that this site is a cheeky scam with a fake chat and a subscription trap. We found a lot of reports on the web about the website, though we did not find any clues about the operator.
