The online dating website XShags.com offers a free registration. But the landing page or the terms and condition do not mention anything about the costs. The only thing the landing page shows are some images of naked women and the window for the registration. As the whole platform does not show any useful information about the service and the costs we did some research and found out that the website XShags.com is a fake chat scam. The member’s area of XShags.com is full of fake profiles. The fake profiles are operated by fake operators to entice the user to buy a subscription. The subscription for a premium-membership is needed if a user wants to get in touch with others but it is a trap as it extends automatically.
The fake profiles are mentioned in the terms and conditions of XShags.com
“5. You comprehend, acknowledge, and agree that the interactions, profile information, and content utilized by Fantasy Dates profiles do not originate from any actual Site member, but are present for entertainment, informational and Site monitoring purposes only. Any similarity between Fantasy Dates profile information or interactions to any real person is purely coincidental and fictitious.”
Even though the terms and condition explain the use of fake profiles it is a fake chat scam. Regarding to the reviews on the internet the fake operators do not mention that they are a fictitious person at the beginning of a chat. So the user gets tricked and some former customers mention that on XShags.com is not a single real person to find. The only thing the website offers are erotic chats and nothing more. But as the landing page mentions that it is possible to meet other people and that this website is the place to find hook-ups it is a scam.
Fake chat scam
The website XShags.com is not just a fake chat scam but also a rip off with a subscription trap. After the registration a new user receives a basic-membership. The basic-membership is for free but it is useless as regarding to the reviews on the internet the user can’t write or read messages. The fake operators take action right after the registration and send messages to a new user. As the user is not able to read them the paid premium-membership gets more and more interesting.
The website XShags.com offers a trial premium-membership. As every kind of premium-membership the trial version will extend automatically and is a trap.
“BE ADVISED THAT ALL TRIAL MEMBERSHIPS WILL AUTOMATICALLY BECOME A REGULAR MONTHLY MEMBERSHIP SUBSCRIPTION AT THE END OF THE TRIAL PERIOD”
A company behind the rip off platform XShags.com is not mentioned. The only useful information is mentioned in the terms and conditions about a contact person that is located in Chicago:
