At first sight, the online dating portal CasualGrannies.com appears to be a great place to find and meet local 50+ singles, who are interested in meeting up for casual sex dates and erotic encounters. The site advertises with free registration and plenty of enticing profile pictures on the landing page. To find out if the portal is recommendable or not, we search for user reviews online and take a close look at the terms and conditions. Unfortunately, it turns out to be a rip-off with a fake chat.
Expensive and pointless
Signing up is free and quick. But using the chat to communicate with other members is extremely expensive. In fact, every single message must be paid for separately. Therefore, even a relatively short conversation can cost a small fortune.
Unfortunately, chatting here is not only incredibly pricey, but also entirely senseless. The member profiles are fake and finding a real person for a casual sex date is impossible. The fake profiles are created and managed by employed fake chat operators, whose job it is to lure the users into long conversations. They persuade them to buy as many message bundles as possible. Some messages are not even sent by real people, but by an automated program of so-called “chatbots”.
The following excerpt is from the terms and conditions
In order to enhance your amusement experience, to stimulate you and others to use our Services more extensively, and to generally sprinkle some sparkle and excitement into the Services of CASUALGRANNIES.COM, we may post fictitious profiles, generate or respond to communications by means of automated programs or scripts that simulate or attempt to simulate your intercommunication with another real human being (though none really exists and any dialog is generated by programming), and we may employ or contract for the paid services of real persons who may interact with you as part of their compensated employment.
The site’s operator is hiding their identity
Despite our efforts to find out who the operator of the site is, we were not able to find the name of the company responsible. Obviously, the operator is hiding their identity, which is highly suspicious, to say the least. To us, CasualGrannies.com is clearly not trustworthy and cannot be recommended. Online, we found several reviews by former customers, who have also had terrible experiences and have lost a lot of money on this scam.
