I am instantly on alert for a scam when I see any dating site that begins with “something” locals. Just about every scammy dating site I’ve run across has had some adjective plopped before locals and while they always seem to promise you the local hot date you’re craving, they rarely deliver. NakedLocals is no different, and once I started poking around, my hunch was proved correct.
Authenticity of Naked Locals
Just like all the other scam dating sites, NakedLocals.com uses fake profiles. These are either run by third-party contractors or site operated bots. And in keeping with the scam theme, Naked Locals uses the term Online Cupids to describe their fake ladies. They even put it right out on the registration screen! When you sign up for this site, you must agree to the fact that the site uses fantasy profiles to keep user engagement up.
Why This Is Completely Fake
Their Conditions Stink
If you join Naked Locals, you should strongly consider reading their Terms and Conditions. These conditions aren’t good, I promise you:
- Membership fees are never refundable.
- Any additional transactional or administrative fees are your responsibility.
- If you make any mistakes in your profile, NakedLocals.com will annul your membership and no, you aren’t getting any reimbursement for fees.
- Your data and information will be used to create registrations on other partner and/or affiliate sites.
- You are going to get bombarded with automatically generated invitations to other dating sites.
When you get an email from someone on NakedLocals, read it over carefully. Yes, I know getting an email from a sexy single looking to connect with you is exciting, but don’t get yourself too worked up yet. If you have an eagle-eye, you’ll probably see there are some details there that give away just what’s up. This site likes to print the words “Online Cupid” quite small and blurry under the hotties picture. If it’s there, your dream date is a fake.
They Have a False “3 Month Guarantee”
Most good dating sites have a get laid guarantee. On the surface, the Naked Locals website has one too. But their guarantee is far from legit. To make use of the guarantee, you’ll have to jump through a multitude of hoops, and even if you can prove that you didn’t get the hookup you wanted, you only get a 3 DAY trial as part of the guarantee. Some of the things you have the burden to prove are:
- Have 2 photos on your profile that are approved by the site
- Chat with at least 5 other members
- Have not met with anyone from the site off-line
- Have been actively searching within a 50-mile radius of your home
- Have a completed profile and log on at least 3 times a week
Their Pricing is Sketchy
On the surface it looks pretty straightforward:
- $2.95 for a trial membership
- $24.95 per month
- $69.95 for 3 months
However, pay attention to the credit card payment screen. NakedLocals prechecks additional subscriptions without your consent. If you aren’t careful, you’re agreeing to more monthly fees to partner sites and they aren’t cheap! If you do find their dirty trick and opt out, they will offer you a 30% discount on membership. They will do everything in their power to try and hook you.
It should also be mentioned, if you don’t pay in a timely manner, they are charging you interest. And if the site should incur any fees due to you, you are agreeing to reimburse them, as well as reimburse any attorney’s fees and you agree to pay Naked Locals an additional $100.
NakedLocals is probably one of the shadiest adult dating sites I’ve encountered. They go above and beyond in trying to get every last penny they can from their members. Between the fake profiles, extra / hidden fees, fake guarantees, and blasting your profile all over their affiliate sites, Naked Locals just isn’t worth it. Trust me, find yourself a better, more legit dating site. Start by registering for the SnapSext.com site. You will definitely thank me!
