One of the biggest concerns people have with joining any dating service is ‘Am I going to get ripped off?’ We’ve all heard stories of people paying out good money on hearing promises of guaranteed relationships or casual affairs, only to find that money would have been better spent elsewhere. The BeNaughty Scam is something that has popped up quite a few times from numerous quarters and, for quite a few reasons.
Firstly, BeNaughty is aimed at adults with little time for relationships and looking more for instant (or near to) sexual gratification via a chat or a hook up. On the surface this is a pretty straightforward plan but the unfortunate repercussion with this particular site is the multitude of prostitutes, escort services and cam girls infesting it.
The BeNaughty Scam is that what you think are genuine profiles and messages are actually organized scammers, spammers and advertisers who are wasting your time and money. Whilst this may not be intentional on the part of those who run the site, it doesn’t change the fact that this is many people’s overwhelming experience.

“Absolute waste of money! There are no real girls on this site, it is just full of cam strippers and fake profile with automated reply’s which try to lure you on to other sites! scammers united! this site is not even worthy of one star but i had to rate it unfortunately!”
To their credit, the site managers have stated on a number of sites that they actively respond to all complaints about fake profiles and remove them. The issue, they say, is that they spring up as quickly as they are deleted therefore making it extremely difficult to successfully manage the spammers. These statements are not borne out by comment’s such as
“I have reported hundreds of fake profile’s to no results.”
The BeNaughty Scam gets worse as it appears the owners have resorted to their own spam bots in an attempt to convince people that there are quality people to meet on the site.

This doesn’t seem to be an isolated incident and occurs after signing up in order to get you to go from a non-paid member as well as to keep you on the hook and get your hard earned cash in their pockets.

“After creating a profile for BeNaughty.com i was hit with over 50 emails from supposed other members wanting to chat but when i bought the membership emails down to zero…”
The reviews from these sites don’t get much better. Of the 249 reviews for BeNaughty on reviewcentre.com, the average rating is 1.7 out of 5 and, as you can see above, that is primarily because the lowest rating they can give is a 1. But the BeNaughty Scam doesn’t end there.
There are also a number of websites with complaints from people who’ve had issues cancelling their subscriptions or general problems with payment processing. From attempting to double charge subscriptions to re-billing after a cancellation has been sent, the BeNaughty Scam has caught out a lot of people and recovering the funds has proven difficult.
Whilst it’s not always the company’s fault for re-bill errors (hell, even I’ve missed a cut off date before), but the sheer number of complaints point to this subscription model being bogus.
Otlore from www.complaintsboard.com shares
“Further more they use repeat billing on the site and you cannot cancel online?! You have to phone a premium number. COMPLETE RIP OFF – BE WARNED.”
All of this evidence points toward a site that is, at best, poorly run and, at worst, is actually an online scam. Aside from these apparent blatant rip-offs, the BeNaughty Scam is perpetuated by a heap of reports of chat rooms that only work for a few hours a day, video chat that barely ever works and an instant messaging system that is composed almost entirely of ripoff merchants attempting to lure you onto paid sites, almost completely hampering your ability to actually sift to the people genuinely interested in hooking up.
If you are after a site which offers discrete encounters or casual affairs for singles and married people, you are much better off going through a trusted site like AshleyMadisonAustalia.com. You will be hard pressed finding complaints like the BeNaughty Scam which litter the internet as Ashley Madison Australia offer a great service on a brilliantly serviced website that’s short on scammers and big on actual people wanting to hook up. Ashley Madison Australia also use a much more sensible credits based system which means you only spend money when you decide to, no subscriptions required.
