Although the homepage seems trustworthy, a scam is hidden behind the façade of TransgenderLocal.com. We create a boring profile, and soon start to receive attention from users. This is not very common, especially when your account does not even have a photo. The excitement of receiving messages could vanish, as members cannot reply to them, unless they leave their card details, for a so-called VIP subscription. Even subscribing for a trial membership, means that the payment will eventually take place. The cancellation process, to avoid unwanted transactions, will be long and burdensome, as implicitly described in the Terms and Conditions.
This premium membership will extend automatically, at a high cost for users. This is something to avoid, if we are meant to make contact with real people. In our experience, TransgenderLocal.com is not only a subscription rip-off, but also a fake chat. The first clue they give us, comes when completing our profile. They ask, “what will our members do to get you horny?”. Besides that, after reading the legal section, it is clearly stated that the site has an “entertainment purpose.” Therefore, the members’ pool is full of profiles which are operated by agents, or bots.

Nonexistent data protection policy
For this review, we carefully checked the legal section of TransgenderLocal.com. Here, they are crystal clear about the right of Blue Mouse Ltd, to make use of members’ personal data, on their different dating portals. This information is presented as an opportunity for the user to be included in a wider database, and to meet many more potential matches. This is far from the truth, as it will only be used to fill other sites’ members’ pools. Or your information will be shown on a random landing page, for promotional purposes. So, your personal data might be accessible to anyone.
