The initial page of LocalDiscreetSex.com doesn’t provide the reader with much information. A few naughty pictures of the most recent subscribers welcome visitors to the page. Prospective users are invited to sign up with the promise that the creation of an account is free of charge. This is only partially true. It’s only setting up a new profile that doesn’t require spending any money. Afterwards, high costs will arise.
This item of information could mislead someone without much experience to believe the whole website is free, which wouldn’t be correct. We can’t exactly call this a scam, but it is something to be wary of. Whenever we have to review a platform like this one, we know we can expect something dodgy to be going on. The lack of transparency is a major sign of possible rip-offs.
Just another fake chat scam
To see whether our initial suspicions were warranted, we created a test profile and took a closer look at the terms and conditions. This is where we were able to find evidence proving the scam. LocalDiscreetSex.com admits to using fake profiles. It claims it does this to enhance the user’s experience and stimulate conversations.
Moreover, it explains that such accounts might be controlled either by automated programs that simulate human conversation or by professional moderators. It doesn’t make any difference, since in either case the sole purpose is to lure members into buying expensive credits. Credits, which are needed to send messages or pictures, are sold in bundles of different sizes. Users are required to pay one credit for every message, which ends up costing, up to AUD 2.00.
Excerpt from the Terms & Conditions (as of 05/09/2023)
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 LOCALDISCREETSEX.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.
Real hookups? Not here
Since users have no way of distinguishing real profiles from fake ones, the chances of meeting someone in real life are very limited. We don’t even know whom we have to thank for this scam. The company from Guernsey that runs LocalDiscreetSex.com hides behind a fake name. This is one more reason why we suggest you don’t waste any time or money on this suspicious platform.
