If you click yes, the following window pops up: The box has the huge capitalized title: “Find Your Friends on Benaughty”, and all of your mail contacts are now highlighted by default. The very small, grey, and barely readable text does inform you what’s going to happen, but its most definitely been designed to mislead you.Benaughty is owned by a company called Cupid plc, and this company also owns a large number of practically identical dating websites.is marketed as a casual dating site, a place where nobody takes dating too seriously, and everybody’s up for having a very naughty time. This is one dating site that you’ll want to avoid like Russell Brand on your wedding night.

After only joining the site 3 hours earlier, this is what ‘My Activity’ looked like: And after 24 hours ‘My Activity’ looked like this: And after 7 days: I’d now received 21 messages, 30 winks, and had 46 admirers. Especially considering I’d not yet filled out a single word in my profile, nor had I uploaded a photo, and I had even given myself the onscreen name: “ihaverabies”.

Yet despite this, my profile also received 5 votes of above 4 stars. A 3 day trial for only £3.48 may sound very tempting, especially when your inbox has been flooded with messages and chat requests from lots of pretty girls.

Then I strongly recommend submitting a complaint to your local consumer protection organization.

UK: If you’re in the UK, then you can send your complaint to the Information Commissioner’s Office: USA/Canada: For the USA and Canada you can report your complaints to the Better Business Bureaus: org Australia: In Australia you can report a complaint to your local Consumer Protection Agency: Let’s face it, a dating site where you can easily hookup with people for no strings sex is like the holy grail. You’d be better spending your money on escort girls or making a cheeky trip to Amsterdam. Although there are people on there looking for relationships there are also many looking for casual affairs and you can also filter these out in the search options. However, there are quite a few scammers on the site so watch out for any messages that sound too good to be true.

FAKE”“At first when you sign up for the “free” site you start getting phony emails with pictures that are obviously stock photos. None of the “contacts” I got ever wrote back, and all messages I got were written with the same language and included stock photos, indicating they were all fake.

When I stopped recurring billing, they kept billing me anyway, so I had to put a block through my credit card company.

So if you’re looking to join a dating site, and see the words “Cupid plc” anywhere on the page, stay well away!

If you feel like you have been misled, scammed and ripped off by Benaughty.com, or any other dating site owned or operated by Cupid plc and their partners.

For anybody who has ever used a reputable dating website, you will know that the chances of receiving a message with a blank profile and within 3 hours of joining, are pretty much next to none. It’s always difficult to prove, but the vast majority of messages, winks and chat request are most likely being generated by scammers who’d sell their own grandma if they got half a chance. But you’ll definitely want to read the small print first!

And here is the small print from their billing policy: So you need to cancel within 3 days otherwise you’ll find that £39.99 has been taken from your credit card. If you then look into their terms and conditions (not visible on the payment page) you will find the following statement: So even if you do attempt to cancel within the 3 day window, your chances are very slim that this will be approved in time.

I’m going to take a closer look at the dirty tricks behind this deplorable site, and the dubious bloodsucking tactics they’re using to scam thousands of people out of their hard earned money.
