SugarSearch.com homepage gives a great first impression. It is easy to navigate and has an inviting appearance. It is free to sign up and offers a promising sugar dating experience. However, upon a closer inspection, it became clear that SugarSearch.com is a fake chat scam, and likely to be a subscription rip-off as well. In our experience on the website, we found there to be many fake chat operators. Therefore, it is unlikely that you will find a real date on this portal.
The Terms and Conditions of this site admit to the use of fictional accounts, and fake chat operators. It states that they create false user profiles. These are part of what they call their “Angel” service, which is supposedly intended to enhance the entertainment of users. Fake accounts, that belong to the Angel service, will send members automated messages. They may also engage users in conversations which are managed by a fake chat operator. For us, this is a major red flag.
Since the purpose of this website is supposedly for meeting up with other real members, it does not make much sense to include false accounts. During our time reviewing this portal, we noticed that many of the accounts which sent us messages were fake. Although, it is difficult to identify them. Considering that users must purchase a subscription, or tokens, to chat with fake accounts, this is a dangerous scam. The operator of this portal claims that they use fictional profiles to both entertain users, and for testing purposes. This operator is Website Development Services LLC, from Miami, in Florida.
From the Terms and Conditions
Some of the user profiles posted on this Website are fictitious and are associated with our “Angel” service. Our ANGEL service is part of our efforts to stimulate conversations with users to encourage further and broader participation in all of our Website’s services, including the posting of additional information or pictures to our users’ profiles.
Initial messages from our ANGEL service may be automatically generated with no human involvement, and third-party contractors hired or contracted by us may generate messages or correspondence from then on. The ANGEL service is also intended to proactively screen user actions and communications to ensure compliance with these terms.
You acknowledge that the information, text, and pictures contained in the ANGEL service profiles do not pertain to any authentic person but are included for entertainment purposes only. Nothing contained in any ANGEL service profile is intended to describe or resemble any real person—living or dead.
We also discovered a subscription trap on this platform. There are multiple cheap trials for users who want to try out the various messaging features of the site. However, when we looked at the fine print, we noticed that the 3-Day trials will automatically renew as an expensive monthly subscription after 1 day. This is a classic subscription rip-off. In addition, previous user reviews have accused the operator of ignoring cancellation requests.
