Unauthorized use of credit card facility
Posted by on
EDINBURGH -- I was offered a 3 day membership trial period with this online dating agency if I submitted my credit card details and paid 3.99GBP.
After the 3 day period, I was not satisfied with the site and what it offered, So didn't bother investigating it any further.
A few weeks later I checked my bank balance and noticed 3.99 plus 24.99 GBP had been debited from my account from the above company.
After notifying them asking for my money back, they refused saying I had used their site and had not notified them in advance to cancel my membership. They would however not withdraw any further funds and my membership would be terminated from immediate affect.
I had never requested or authorized them to a month membership fee in the first place.
I subsequently found out that if you don't notify the company within 3 days to cancel your 'membership' they continue to bill you!
I tried getting the transaction cancelled with my bank-they said it would involve cancelling my debit card, which is an inconvenience at this point.
I therefore have no option but to take the matter up with small claims-again a waste of my time, so it looks like this company has succeeded in stealing 24.99 GBP of my money.
How many more people will they scam in this manner before they are removed from trading online?

I don't think a website called "be naughty" is where you're going to find your future lifemate
madconsumer on 2009-06-15:
did you cancel it per the trial requirements? if not, these types of services auto renew.
KCRovert on 2009-06-15:
It's not a scam...it's how many, many sites operate when you sign up. The problem comes from users not reading the terms of the offer when they sign-up for things.

"After the 3 day period, "


There you have it. you waited until AFTER the trial period to cancel

therefore it charged you full status. and you are entitled to a refund of 0.00 GBP

Totally agree with KCRovert.

I luv Benuaghty. I am a member and I have to pay only 1GBP to have access to chat emails etc.
There are lots of genuine people over there. All you have to do is just to make a little afford and spend some time.
About your post.. I don`t think it`s scam, it`s just you don`t read Terms and Conditions. And it`s only your fault.
Peace.

Moved From Other Review: I'd just like to say despite all the comments, rip offs, and the rest, I love this site ... lol.

Through here I have chatted to some top girls, posted things in the forums I'd never dream of saying in a million years, and talked (annoyingly through the forums) to some fabulously interesting, strong, funny and witty women..

I've had a couple of interesting meetings... no details here lol, but the icing on the cake is I've met someone who I can honestly say presses all the right buttons ... and as she lives miles away the chances of a meeting otherwise are nil....

So, while you guys are fed up, feeling low, ignored and all the rest, let me just say, keep trying and searching (that's where I've found my top gals), blog, and I'll keep my fingers and everything else crossed for you ...

Cheers

Benaughty is a scam site.

There a few honest operations in the internet dating game, but Benaughty isn't one of them.

So unless you like being swindled, avoid BN.

And warn others to avoid them also.

A better name for this site would be sucker central.

Complaints to BN admin concerning overt scammers and fake profiles are never acted upon.

Every complaint that I have ever read or heard about this 'service' is fully justified in my own experience.

With the number of dodgy profiles on that site, one can only suspect that the owners of BN at best tolerates scammers and at worst, might even be orchestrating these peripheral scams.

Obviously not everybody there is a con artist or a raving schizo but there are enough of both to populate a modestly sized town.

What the owners of Benaughty are doing is blatantly dishonest and the owners should feel the full weight of the law.

If you got scammed by Benaughty or any site like it, be sure to report the matter to your local fair trading authories.

the way yohoho was talking this site up, I don't think it's exactly a "dating" site but rather a xxx/sexual encounter site

(though speaking of yohoho it is a bit odd that he/she only has 2 posts and both are about how well this site is?... )
Goforit on 2010-01-19:
I started with blogs and the forum for free on BeNaughty. So, before I decided to pay ( in 3 months ) , I got an overall idea of how things work on the site and if it's worth paying.

And from what I understood BeNaughty is not a dating site... they use a differen besiness model.
So me suggestion would be - try to use features you don`t have to pay for and then decide to pay or not to pay for membership.

Gridow on 2010-01-22:
Hot girls and boys - love this site.
madseadog - try to get in touch with admins maybe you can get a refund.

and GBP = Pounds sterling, the currency in the UK


hmm the review is drawing a few 1-post or 2-post new people
interesting.

makes me wonder if they're perhaps shills if they constantly talk up how "good" the xxx site is.
Gibbeh on 2010-01-25:
he site is clearly a scam from the word go. I actually work for a bank read the terms and conditions and trusted the site would be easy to cancel,reading into it you have 3 day 3 trial but takes 3 days to cancel lol. wat a load of &^$", its clearly over priced and full of scams from the word go, yes there are a few regulars on there and they stick out like a sore thumb,anyone wanting to claim the money back should contact the bank and trading standards, as its clearly not set out about the canelation process. as your bank to make a dispute for the tranasction and claim the funds. as for thinking canceling your card is the answer, this won't stop the payment, even if your card was stolen. benaughty is a subscription and will still be taken regardless. anyone having extream struglle to cancel the utter RUBISH SCAM SITE FULL OF FATTIE OLDIES AND WORKING WEBCAM GIRL SITES, which is clear to see that benaughty must have some involvement with. no way that many scams in one place.also benaughty work under a company called sex I orget the rest but that wsays enough for me to get my suspisions. long story short by law they must have an acting phone number to contact to cancel if all else fails. your bank will have this with your transaction code. hope this helps to get ur money back
jack_norton on 2010-02-21:
I love this site. I am a girl so don`t have to pay, and I am not .. in men if you know what I mean.
That`s why I am glad because there are huge amount of sexy babes on this site!!
PepperElf on 2010-02-21:
a girl named jack?... I suspect "jack" is one of the many shills who pops up to "verify" how well this site works.

Maybe there is a transgender option on the site but Pepper... I'm thinking you are right.
Ben There on 2010-02-21:
Hey Jack, we can see what name you used to create the account... Just more proof that all the hot chicks you chat with online are really dirty old men named Jack.
Colin1975 on 2010-03-28:
Think you reap what you sow. Don't expect offers to just jump out at yo constantly (for a bloke). Yes, many scammers exist but just use your noggin and do not think that everyone is a scammer.
We are not all male supermodels so do expect your fair share of knock backs. But if your approach seems to be geting nowhere, then try a different way. But generally I think girls like banter and personality. Just blurting out sexual requests immediately doesn't seem to be a winning tactic for most either.
And I've mentioned before. Treat everyone individually and take an interest. There isn't a universal approach that works on everyone. You may have to target a lot of women just to get one response. But when you do you should take the time to see what they want rather than what you want.

After all that, NO I have not had a meet lol. But I have found someone who is more than keen.

Pattheman on 2010-07-22:
The site is great, only you have to figure out how to deal with cam girls ( I ignore ). Also remember to read the small print - it will save you time
Tony1985 on 2010-07-25:
I love it when people go on here and say it must all be fakes cos trhey aren't getting any!!! Oh please not bein funny I m no brad pitt but maybe you should just start chatting to people instead of just leaving emails that's for starters and also avoid the profiles that are obviously escorts etc.

Personally I have met up with one lady last Friday and am curently arranging another meet with another lady and have been chatting to loads of dead sound people.

I'm no expert but really read the persons profile and base you chat on that like if they say they just want nsa and that's it then fair enough you can say fancy som e fun as a first question but if they aren't then you will look like a twat!!! Its not rocket science.

Stick with it and you will be fine and don't listen to these people who tell you this site is full of fakes it isn't.
Tony1985 on 2010-08-01:
Be Naughty is about as real as any other dating site I have seen.

Before you decide wether you want to pay to join an internet service of any kind, it is good policy to do a search on the consumer sites to see what kind of a reputation that service has.

Internet dating is not to everyone's taste, so do your homework before you join a pay for membership service.

Also pay close attention to the warnings by admin and members about the activities and tactics of scammers and NEVER "verify" yourself to anyone by giving them your credit details!

Good luck in your search here.

There are some charming ladies at BN and I hope you meet someone soon.
PepperElf on 2010-08-01:
and STILL the ONLY people who have claimed this service is "legit"
are people with one or two comments only
and 100 % of their comments have been about how legit the site is


which does strike me as suspicious.

I mean if they had other posts about other companies then I wouldn't wonder if they were linked to the site
but when 100% of their posts are about proving how "legit" the company is...

it makes you wonder.
Tony1985 on 2010-08-22:
I have no problem with this site, OK I have only met one lady and it didn't work out but here on the forums I've talked to some great people and had a good laugh chatting and even a bit of flirting, if I had gone to my local pub would it have been any better, I think not, would of cost me more and I wouldn't of gotten half as much out of it, I think its what you make of it, you only get out what you put in

I have been a member of be naughty.com australia for the last 4-5 months. I am very unhappy with this site. VERY. I receive winks from ladies, I wink back. Nothing, I receive messages or should I say HEADINGS from ladies, I message them back...nothing. I message ladies that I think that would be suitable...nothing. I however keep receiving winks/messages/txts from ladies that are from overseas even though my profiles stipulates that I am not interested in any 1 from overseas, just qld australia....Ninety nine percent of the ladies on the site either do not have a photo or no profile or both...Now I know this site is not the best site to meet the lady of your dreams and settle down and have 2 cars and 2.5 kids..etc, but u would think that with 4 million members on the site that a lot of the ladies on there are there for a reason and would say something to the effect as to what they are looking for. I just think that in the 4-5 months that I have been on this site that at least 1 lady, in the age range that I am looking for would have at least shown some sort of interest or struck up a conversation with me.

That's too bad you're not into women overseas. American women are very, very naughty.

BeNaughty.com Internet Dating is a Scam!
Posted by on
I joined the Internet Dating Site 'BeNaughty' in December 2010. Since then, I have been Insulted, Verbally Abused, Swore At, Told to Get Off the Site by Members, and Had Vile Racist Abuse from British Members, telling me that Because I'm Irish, I Wasn't Welcome in the International Intelligent Room!

I Reported the Abuse on Every Occasion to the Administration - NOTHING WHATSOEVER was Done!

I have Now Contacted the Irish Police, who are Dealing with the Matter of Cyber Bullying!

PLEASE AVOID THIS SITE - IT IS NOT GENUINE!

The site is called be naughty? Isn't that what the other members are doing? I don't think the police are going to be able to do anything honestly.

Because you are Irish?!!! Oh no, uh uh! I would have insulted, verbally abused, swore right back at 'em, being Irish myself.
azRider on 2011-03-28:
wait your irish? irish girls are hot. if your a guy stop reading this! your being naughty!

lol I would suggest canceling your membership and finding a sight that doesn't have a title "be naughty". Maybe a nice christian singles website is for you.
redmx3racer on 2011-03-28:
Wait-people say mean things on the internet in public forums? Can't say I've ever heard of such a thing.
On a serious note, I don't forsee anything changing for you on that site. I'd cancel and move on.
Skye on 2011-03-28:
Have you thought about volunteer work? It's a great way to meet new people, network yourself, You then have the chance to meet that special someone.

Good luck in your quest for love.
Starlord on 2011-03-29:
Since when is Irish a race? Hasn't several decades of 'the troubles' in Ireland taught you anything about British/Irish relations? As a comedian once said, "Can't we all get along like good Christians?" Ha! Like that will happen. I would be very suspicious of a claimed dating service with a name like Be Naughty. Sounds more like an outfit to get perverts together. And here I thought I had seen everything when I saw commercials for a 'Christian internet dating service.' AYSM?
