We found a striking resemblance between MegaCasualDates.com and other false hookup sites maintained by Nautell which have the prefix “free” in their name. However, on further investigation it turned out that this is not a site associated with Nautell. There is something fishy here, because the site uses the same home screen, the same blonde girl and the same features as well as the formidable fraudster company, so we decided to investigate further.
It is not unusual for similar hookup sites to be associated with different companies who just belong to the same people and are based on the same same scam methods. We think that this is the situation with MegaCasualDates.com. Upon further review we found out that we were right. The tricks applied by Nautell are applied to this new company, the false profiles, the pre-checked payment boxes, the love stars and the limited control over the content by users.
Why is MegaCasualDates.com a Standard Hookup Site Rip-off
Here are the details of the rip-off scam performed by MegaCasualDates.com that contains provisions about the application of extra fees, virtual profiles, as well as the scam with the upgrade screen.
MegaCasualDates.com Does Content Control
The site reserves the right for content control. This means that all your messages and communication with other members will be monitored. Whenever the site software decides that the messages you have sent are not in line with the terms and conditions of the site policy, they have the right to delete it, change it or remove it.
Virtual Profiles Called Love Stars Will Stuck Your Mailbox with Fake Messages
This happens to every user that visits this fraudulent adult dating site. The plethora of messages that are filling in your inbox are not real messages. Can you explain how can you get so many messages for such a short time in your inbox, and you have not put any information or uploaded any photo on your profile?
Hidden Costs Below the Upgrade Screen
Let us put it short and simple: MegaCasualDates.com is in no way free. Not only it is not free, but it also carries hidden costs which are part of the huge scam of this hookup site. For example, have a look at the upgrade plans below. They fill in most of your screen when you are trying to choose the subscription package. But, that is not all you will paycheck out the smaller part of the section below which includes the additional VIP membership. As you can see, the subscription is not only $30 or only $60. Add up additional $100 per month on each of the packages you choose:
Unforeseen Extra Fees Are Paid by the Customer
If an extra cost occurs in the bank transaction, there is no space for negotiation with MegaCasualDates.com. All alternative payments are put on the customers back. You can read them in the Terms and Conditions. Be very careful when you’re submitting your payment and when you’re choosing the payment method.
MegaCasualDates.com Lets the Customer Pay for SMS Costs Invoked by The Site
Check out this logic: When this adult dating site sends you a promotion via SMS, any costs they occur must be paid by the customer. They have no connection whatsoever with the SMS charges. Does this mean that they use commercial SMS dating and profit from the messages?
