Review: EasySex.com :: SCAM ALERT!

Posted: November 4, 2015 by Isaac Cross in Reviews, Reviews (Web)

UPDATE 11/30/15: Fetlife seems to have pulled the ad after we alerted them to the site’s practices. Good for them.

UPDATE 11/6/15: Despite the fact that I was careful to avoid all the sneaky hidden check boxes all over the site, today, the website charged by credit card $81.85. I immediate got on the phone and notified them that my entire session on their website had been recorded and that I can prove those charges were never authorized. They quickly reversed the charges, but I won’t have the refund (most likely) for a week or so.

So if you can’t afford to have nearly $100 taken from you, do not, under any circumstances, give this website your credit card information.

The bottom line: They lie about what you will be able to do when you sign up, they attempt to trick you into signing up for more than you want, and they will try to get an exorbitant amount of money from you for something that is available for free all over the internet. You will have almost no ability to do anything without forking over money, and once you do, you will struggle to get them to stop charging you. Your best bet, STAY AWAY!!! (DatingBusters.com agrees with me)

Better than hookers!!!! Sign me up!

I saw this ad on Fetlife and decided to go check it out. Because that’s what I’m here for. I dig through the garbage of the internet so that you don’t have to. 

Right off the bat, I am concerned. The myriad of naked pictures as the background of the landing page is a red flag. Across the top, the site advertises that there are “naked pictures of someone you know”. Hmm.

ES

Nothing about this is dubious.

The Process of Joining

The sign up process is relatively painless. It asks the usual demographic questions, the asks some preference questions about oral and anal, but the options for answer are very limited:

  • I hate it
  • I love giving, but hate getting
  • I love getting, but hate giving
  • I like it sometimes
  • It’s a requirement

OK, where is the button for “I really love it, but you don’t have to”, which would be my answer on both.

Then it asks for email and assures you that “We will never send spam to you. We respect your privacy and we keep your email address safe, secure, and discreet.”

We’ll see. (The “Privacy Policy” on the site says this: “By the paying or non-paying member’s use of the Site, the paying or non-paying member expressly agrees to receive offers and emails from easysex.com.”) So I imagine I will start getting quite a bit of spam now. Fortunately, I used a junk email address that I will throw away when this is all done.

After my email is confirmed, a video of a girl in her underwear assures me that they are only asking for my credit card so they can verify my age and identity, but the site is 100% free.

I doubt it, but let’s see what happens.

(Be sure to notice the “RocketPay” check box hidden on the bottom of the page. It is already checked when you load the website and authorizes them to store your information)

I put in the credit card information to get access to my “FREE LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP” and the next thing that comes up is….

SPECIAL OFFER, TODAY ONLY – UPGRADE TO PLATINUM VIP AND GET UNLIMITED ACCESS

  • $149.95 for 18 months
  • $85.95 for 6 months
  • $23.32 for 3 months

(Also, hidden on the upper right side of the screen is a discrete little check box that also gives them permission to charge you $40/month for access to PickupAnyGirl.com)

And what does this “VIP” package get you? Well, they don’t really say and I’m not hitting the continue button to find out right now, so I’ll click “No Thanks” and continue to the site (after unchecking the hidden subscription box, of course)

Now, I am pushed off to a porn site “MyDumbassGirlfirned.com”. Close that and return to the site.

My information including my new customer number is on the screen and it advises me to save for my records. You bet I will, because it will probably be hard to find later.

Experience in the Site

What do you know? I already have a “Fuck Request”, even though there is no information about me except my location. “2Hot4U” is DTF. Nope, that’s an ad in disguise. I avoid it and click to member home. A popup ad for GGG. When I close the popup, it takes me to their site anyway. Now I am actually seeing the profiles of (supposedly) other real people using the site.

I head over to the support page in search of an explanation of their pay levels. Here it is:

What’s the difference between Basic, Silver and Gold?
  • Basic members can do general, basic member searches
  • Basic members can upload photos and videos
  • Basic members can send invitations to hookup now with other members
Silver members get all of the benefits of a Basic membership, plus:
  • Silver members can view all members’ photos and videos
  • Silver members can contact all other easysex.com members
  • Silver members can do advanced searches
  • Silver members can send friend requests
  • Silver members get listed above all Basic members in all search results
Gold members get VIP access to everything that easysex.com has to offer:
  • Gold members get full access to The Gold Room (The nets largest hardcore porn site)
  • Gold members can view all members’ photos and videos
  • Gold members can contact all other members
  • Gold members get listed above all Basic, and Silver members in all search results
  • Gold members can do advanced searches
  • Gold members can upload photos and videos
  • Gold members can send invitations to hookup now with other members
  • Gold members can send friend requests

Farther down, it mentions that you are prohibited from including email addresses or website url’s in your profile. (This is a common way of forcing you to pay to contact people through the site, since you can’t give out any other contact info).

Another interesting line from the support page “If you’re a Basic member you can’t send email but you can receive them from a Gold or Silver member.” This stands in direct contradiction to what the site said on it’s front page, see:

ES

100% FREE* * Except that you have to pay for it.

So we have now established that the site is not honest.

They lie about what you will be able to do when you sign up, they attempt to trick you into signing up for more than you want, and they will try to get an exorbitant amount of money from you for something that is available for free all over the internet.

I won’t be giving them any money, because my guess is that once I authorize it, it will be surprisingly difficult to cancel.

Sending & Receiving Messages

Another attempt to trick me into paying money. As soon as I try to send a message to someone, I see that another pre-checked option box that will commit me to spending money. SOmeone in a hurry might miss it.

ES2

Ah, you almost got me, you little stinker.

I uncheck that box and send a message that basically tells the person that I am writing this review of the site and want to know if there are any real-life humans on the site and whether my messages actually reach them. The site says the message was sent.

After that, I am sent to my inbox, where there is a message waiting for me from what appears to be a very attractive woman asking “what pick up line works best on me”. But at this point, I can’t do anything else without being forwarded to this page:

ES3

Like a stripper once said to me, “If you aren’t going to give me money, than I’m going to stop pretending to care about you.”

So much for “Free Lifetime Access”.

So I guess my time here is done.

Who Owns This Site

This is always my favorite part because based on a few tell-tale features of the site, I already can predict what I will find. And sure enough, the site is owned and operated by Kamparri Trading Ltd.

That probably doesn’t mean anything to you, but it’s the same company that runs several other sites, including xxxmatch.com, socialsex.com, and xxxcupid.com, which is another site I reviewed a while back. Here’s what I wrote about this company back then.

I’m not the only one. According to ScamBook.com, there have been 56 fraud complaints filed against this company in the last three years.

Your Risk – HIGH!

If you start a profile on this site, be prepared to be sent to a lot of shady sites without you asking. That’s a virus risk.

Next, they are going to hang onto your credit card info and attempt to get you to give them permission to use it over and over again. If you slip up and click the wrong button once, you will be locked into a monthly agreement.

And if you decide to cancel your card to stop them, they will actually send you to collections. According to multiple consumer reports, the site makes a habit of sending people to collections if they miss a monthly payment due to a cancelled card or insufficient funds. This will impact your credit rating, and worse, you will basically have a porn peddler listed on your credit report.

And then there is the financial risk. If the other websites owned by this company are any indication, once they get money from you, they will not stop. You can easily be out a few hundred dollars before you know what’s happening.

Your best bet, STAY AWAY!!!

    Complete scam. Here’s their address which is received in an email after sending a message to their customer service:

    EasySex.com – The Woodlands Office Park – Building 17 – 20 Woodlands Dr – Woodlands, Sandton – 2191 – South Africa

  2. You do know that by posting a link to the website you actually help them…

    • Isaac Cross says:

      Not really. I watch the traffic here carefully. Post people visiting this page reached it after searching for the website name along with some other word, such as “scam”. About a hundred people a day, in fact. So these are folks who were already on the scam site and considering whether to give them their information. Perhaps after reading this, they decide not to.

      • Oscar says:

        What if I gave them the info before reading this any advise plz help if you can thank you

      • Isaac Cross says:

        If your card gets charged a phone number will appear with the charge on your statement. Call them and ask for the charged to be reversed and your membership cancelled.

  3. Rj says:

    I’ve gotten a email from them saying the I registered and signed up. I did NOT. I do not know this website or ever heard of it. They seem to have some personal info which scares me. Worst of all my girlfriend thinks I’m cheating on her and in the process of leaving me. Help.

    • Isaac Cross says:

      I’m not sure how to help you with that. The best thing that I can say is that she clearly doesn’t trust you. Either she is inherently distributing or you have a history of actions that makes her conclusions leap reasonable. But either way, there is a bigger issue than receiving this email and I can’t solve it for you here.

      Also, how did she know about the email in the first place? Either you are very open with her and share that sort of thing with her and she still doesn’t believe you about it, or she was liking through your emails without your permission, in which case, see paragraph 1.

      As for the emails, if they already have your info somehow (you might have given it to one of their many other scam sites), there isn’t much you can do about it. You can unsubscribe to stop receiving emails. If they charge your card, you can dispute it. But apart from that, there isn’t much to be done.

      Talk to your girlfriend. If own communication (and taking action that results from that conversation) doesn’t solve that problem, out probably wasn’t going to work out anyway. Good relationships are built on trust. If you can’t trust each other, regardless of why, there is no foundation to build on.

    Unfortunately, FetLife seems to be getting ads from them again. Although, I must admit that if FetLife is signed up to an Ad program, it might not have much say over what Ads are shown.

  5. Isaac, could i sent you a link, maybe you could take a look at my website and tell me what you think.
