The online dating website SnapShag.com appears to be trustworthy and legit at first sight. The landing page advertises with free registration, and promises to be a great platform to find local singles for casual sex dates and hot adventures. As usual, we do some research on the internet and try to find some customer reviews. Furthermore, we read the terms and conditions and collect some information about the site’s operator. Unfortunately, SnapShag.com quickly turns out to be a rip-off.
Without a paid premium-membership, the website is rather useless. All interesting features, including the chat, can only be used by paying members. Immediately after the free registration, new users find message notifications in their virtual mailboxes. But to react to the promising messages, they unavoidably must upgrade the free basic-membership to the paid premium-membership. At this point, the user unfortunately does not know, that the promising messages are not sent by real people. In fact, they are sent by fake operators, who are working for the website and whose job it is to lure users into paying for a premium-membership.
We find the following notes in the terms and conditions
By using this Website you acknowledge that any User profiles, messages and communication may not be genuine.
From time to time, the Company employees (or employees of its parent or affiliated companies) may create test dating profiles for the purpose of checking and testing the functionality of our Website and Service to improve the quality and user experience for its Users.
The pointless memberships can lead into expensive subscription traps
As users are not sufficiently informed about the fake profiles, they are tricked into paying for a membership subscription. These membership subscriptions are not only pointless, they are also dangerous traps. On SnapShag.com, they renew automatically and are difficult to terminate. The operator behind this scam is already well-known for their subscription traps. Arnaze Online Limited is based on the Isle of Man, UK, and runs a whole network of scam dating websites. On the internet, we find several reports by former customers, who have had some terrible experiences with this company and its websites. Consequently, we cannot recommend anyone to register here.
