Though BigHotLadies.com looks like a promising website at first glance, our investigation found it to be another fake chat scam. It also contains a dangerous subscription trap. We read numerous user experience reviews, scanned the Terms and Conditions. We also made an account to test the website ourselves. Not only is this website likely to be full of fictitious profiles, but it is also an expensive subscription rip-off. The chances of talking to someone other than a computerized chatbot, or website employee, are extremely low.
Suspicious messages and profiles
As previously noted, we created an account to test out the site. Immediately after signing up, we received multiple messages from attractive looking profiles. These messages were all enticing, or suggestive, in nature, and invited us to start chatting with them.
The fact that our inbox immediately began filling up, is a big red flag, which indicates a fake chat scam. It is very unusual that so many appealing profiles would send messages to our blank account. The Terms Conditions reveal that the operator uses automated chatbots to send messages to users. Combined with how many past users, who have accused the website of containing fictitious profiles, and using chatbots, the chance of a scam here is very high. Based on our experience on BigHotLadies.com, we believe that the likelihood of meeting someone real here is low.
From the Terms and Conditions
To boost interaction between our members and in order to notify them of newly registered matches and their activity (i.e. registration, photo upload etc.), we may, from time to time, use and automatic pop-up notification system and other communication channels e.g. inbox or instant messages to send Activity Notifications to you. Activity Notifications will be marked in your inbox with a specific icon, and some auto generated Activity Notifications may require an upgraded Paid Membership in order to see the content of the message and reply to it.
Dangerous subscription trap
Another big issue we noticed on BigHotLadies.com is the upgraded membership. Users are required to purchase a premium membership subscription, to view and send messages. The site offers multiple intriguing offers, including low-priced trials. We found that these offers are simply meant to rip-off unknowing users. This is because you must submit a request to cancel your membership more than 72 hours, or 3 days, before the end date, to avoid being re-billed.
In the case of the 3-day trial offer, this is impossible. Everyone who signs up for this trial will be charged at the full price for the following month. The operator, InfraWeb Solution Ltd, is notorious for this scam.
From the Terms and Conditions
All paid subscriptions automatically renew for the period and price that you signed up to. You may cancel the auto-renew feature to avoid recurring charges, but you must act at least 3 days (that is, 72 hours) prior to the renewal date.
