The online dating platform Good-Shag.com looks trustworthy and legit at first sight. It appears to be a perfect place to find local singles, who are interested in some exciting adventures and casual sex dates. The landing page is well-designed and filled with profile pictures of attractive members. Furthermore, the registration is free and can be done in no time at all. As always, we search the internet for user reviews and carefully read the terms and conditions. Unfortunately, we quickly find some hints that Good-Shag.com is a scam.
In the terms and conditions, we find the following note
The member acknowledges that the service is a dating and also an entertainment website. The user can accept that in certain cases the dialogues might be held with a profile created for entertainment purpose.
In other words, the website creates several fake profiles, which are managed by employed fake chat operators. In our experience, these profiles are used to trick new users into becoming paying members.
Directly after the free registration, users receive some enticing fake messages. Assuming that these messages are sent by real people, with whom a date can be arranged, users are willing to reply quickly. On Good-Shag.com, the first 8 messages are free, but after that, a paid membership subscription is needed to continue chatting. As users are not sufficiently informed about the fake profiles, they can easily fall for this scam. Obviously, real-life dates are not possible with fictional profiles. Therefore, Good-Shag.com is a fake chat rip-off.
All subscriptions renew automatically, if not terminated in time. Also, the cheaper trial membership automatically converts into a 1-month subscription, which happens to be the most expensive of all offered options. Therefore, we cannot recommend any of the offered paid services, because it appears to be a cheeky subscription trap.
The operator of the site is Salamandra Web SL, from Barcelona, Spain. We have already reviewed some other websites run by this company. Each of them was a big disappointment. The company seems to always follow the same strategies to rip-off its customers. Therefore, we cannot recommend anyone to register on Good-Shag.com, or any other website run by this company.
