Hi, I desperately decided to cut my credit card and apply for a new one to protect my money. However, I am afraid of their terms and conditions. Is it possible they can find me with my IP address and exact money from me?

I cancelled my subscription at least 3 months ago,have not been on in at least that long. Just looked at my bank account online and low and behold $28.99 has been deducted from the account. The problem is not with scammers on the site,but the site itself. Huge scam I am going to my bank today to make sure this does not happen again. I wish everyone the best of luck that has to deal with this problem.

I gone to BN, because of your review. Turn out to be scam, every women is saying same, “Im horny” or “hey hawt, im horny let chat’ They basically bagged the user to pay $39 other website to meet them or view the webcam. Im only here to meet someone in public place, but they don’t even have a gut, puss, lol.

Yummy_kiM is a great explainable to be begging a user to fill the profile and CC site before meet her in person because she need to feel “safe”. She claimed that CC site is free. NO I seen the $39 under the CC site and she said it just a bluff. BLUFF?! Called that bluff, when they took out of my money and CC site my credit card. NOW I HAVE GOT TO GO THE BANK.

Thats not all, I just found out that site run by scammers. I tried to remove my account from BN, then called the customer service. they claimed that my account is removed. Then I go back and look at BN, oh jeez look like my account is somehow got removed. Well it is not. I called it again. They said it is removed. THIS IS BULL. THIS BN is suck as fraud! That it, I not taking anymore dating site and BN. EVER MORE!

I gave it a try and tried to cancel but could not. E-mail ignored time an time again. They helped themselves to my money again. The only way to stop them is to go to the bank and cancelled my card. Then I got flooded with all the young requests to meet and guess what? The only way to see them was to rejoin. Their marketing is pushed very hard. I asked to pay without a credit card and that was ignored. ITS JUST A SCAM !

It is truly sad to see all those who have been scammed by BeNaughty. Sadly, as I read the experiences of others, they mirror mine.

However, my anger has softened and I write this reply after a cooling off period. This is important as I feel it is necessary to set out my experience with BeNaughty, in the hopes of convincing others to stay away from them and their other dating sites.

Here is what you need to be aware of:

(1) At BeNaughty, they ask you to cancel your membership prior to expiration of your membership or they will continue to bill you. This "negative optioning" is a tactic that no respectable business will employ. In Canada, the telecommunications giant, ROGERS, tried this and there was an enormous backlash as it was widely held that this tactic would allow the giant to take money which was never intended for them. Sound familiar with BeNaughty?

(2) Your attempts to cancel will be fraught with difficulty. First, you must cancel online, then call in with a cancellation code which will force you to speak with one of their operators (keep in mind that none of the larger more reputable dating sites have a 2-stage cancellation procedure).

This 2-stage process is a major pain in and of itself, but it is obviously a way for them to keep you on the hook for as long as possible for further billing. In my case, their website verified my successful cancellation several times. I was careful to cancel online many times, to ensure I would not be billed further. The first call I made to quote the cancellation code made it clear that the code was not needed. In fact, they never asked for the code. They offered extended membership and upgrades for free. But what they don't tell you is that they will not accept your request for cancellation at that time, and you must call in again. Once again, I cancelled successfully online several times. However, on the new day of expiry of my membership, I called to ensure cancellation was successful. The operater saw my efforts to cancel, and updated my file accordingly to show my request for cancellation came prior to my membership expiry date.

This is where the scam comes alive: I noted my credit card was billed and called them. They sent my complaint "up" and I received only emails saying they could not give refunds. Even in the face of my case showing their online website erred several times by verifying my request, and, their operator updating my file with my request to cancel, they would still not refund.

To be clear, I am a lawyer. I know their fine print says cancellation must be online and then verbally. This puts an onus on the member. However, in law, their "no refund" policy is not to absolve them of responsiblity when their website errs or their phone operator ignors your wishes. Despite me asking for a specific response to what they will do given their website and phone operator shortcomings, they would only quote the "no refund" policy. See the absurdity? In other words, they will not refund your money no matter what error they make in billing you.

(3) The site itself is a hot-bed for scammers. Your inbox fills daily with obvious scammers. Communicate with them briefly and you will soon be asked to send the scammer money for their cause. Even without communicating with them, it soon becomes apparent that a contact from the other side of the earth must be a scammer. In fact, some of the contacts will come from fictional cities.

(4) Reporting the scammer is not worthwhile. I reported dozens and continued to see them appear subsequent to my complaint.

(5) As your membership expiry date approaches, you will begin to see your inbox fill up. No doubt the administrator is doing this to beckon you to extend your membership.

In summary, your money will be wasted as this site has dozens more scammers than legitimate members, and you will always be at risk for being billed further given the difficulties they will cause you when you wish to cancel.

As a futher caveat, be aware of their other sites. Below is a list of the sites that they offerred myself membership in lieu of a refund, which I obviously did not accept.

If anyone needs further clarification, I am more than willing.

Be naughty; milf; lonelywifehookup are all scams.
Look at the stars on their profiles gold stars are online cuties. That is not real peope. Youll never meet them no dates etc. Just money scam. Try to cancel? Good luck. I found best way is to use debit card and cancel your debit card number every couple months they can't charge your account thereafter. Besides with all the hackers and Id thefts It'd be a good idea to change account number every so often. The site is run by scammers.

I totally understand your frustration, but the internet is pretty mature at this point, and if you've been around looking for dating sites, you should know that 99% of them are full of fakes. Their only goal is to get horny men to sign up and spend their money, even if it's only for a month. When you multiply that times thousands of memberships, then you get millions of $$$. But anyways, if you want to find a good, true dating sites that are not in the business just to make money, but to provide service, you should check out the oldie but goldie plenyoffish.com, and a newcomer to the dating arena - naughtyfind.com.
Both are 100% free, and both sites' primary goal is to connect people for online dating. Best of luck!
