Evidence that prove SocialGator.com is scam

In the quest of finding solid evidence for the tools that we found suspicious on SocialGator.com, we opened and carefully read through the site’s Terms & Conditions document. In fact, every user is obligated to check a little box upon signing up on the site and agree to the terms of use. It was on this page where we found the proof for SocialGator.com scams.

1. The Use of Your Photographs and Related Information and Content

By agreeing to the terms of use, you agree that your photos, personal information, interests, and communications sent through messages on the site can be used and shared on other dating sites run by the same company or by related companies. The disturbing part is that the personal information of other users are also used on this and other sites, and this is done automatically, without any special notifications. You are only warned about this in the long, unreadable terms of use document.

EVIDENCE: “You agree and acknowledge that your profile and related information and content may be utilized and displayed on other sites which are owned by related companies or authorized services providers (“Network websites”). Your profile and its related information and content may be searchable by members registered to other Network websites. Conversely you may be able to search for member profiles which are registered to other Network websites.”

 

2. The Fabrication of Profiles via the “GatorBuddies” Program

One of the main uses of your personal information and the info posted on profiles by other users may be used for this particular purpose. SocialGator.com fabricates dating profiles in order to fill up the dating sites with many women and deceive you into thinking you can actually meet someone. But, in their terms of use page, they point out that photographs, profile data, personal interests, and messages can be inaccurate. They call these fabricated profiles “GatorBuddies” and they are operated by computer software.

EVIDENCE: “All profiles are provided for the entertainment of our members and our users. You understand, acknowledge, and agree that some of the user profiles posted on this site may be fictitious or models or bots related to our “GatorBuddies” (GB) program.”

 

3. Computer-Automated Communications

Fake and automated messages are actually the first deception you can detect on this site, since it is the first one that new members are exposed to. It takes only a few minutes for you to start getting messages from local women who seem to be very interested in you. Believe us when we say that all messages sent to you are made-up. We have done quite a lot reviews on dating sites and we were able to detect the smell of scam immediately. Of course, this suspicion is also backed up by a paragraph in the terms of use.

EVIDENCE: “Our GB work for the site in an effort to stimulate dialogue with users and to stimulate user participation on the Website and Services. You further understand, acknowledge, and agree that, from time-to-time, GB may contact Website and Services users and members via electronic messaging, including for example, email, instant messages, and SMS, for purposes of encouraging further or broader participation in our site’s Services and/or to monitor user activity.”

 

4. All This Trouble Is To Get To Your Money

If you are wondering why an online dating service would go through so much trouble to deceive you in so many various ways, you should know that SocialGator.com is after your money. The women are used to rick your eyes and mesmerize you, and then these profiles are utilized to send you automated messages which make you believe someone is really trying to communicate with you. The catch is that when you see a woman and try to send her a message – you are asked to pay. Also, when you receive a chat, email, or instant message – you are asked to upgrade to a paid membership to be able to read it and respond.

Here is the SocialGator.com pricing list:

  • $2.72 for a 2 day trial period on the site
  • $34.50 for 1 month of site membership
  • $81.90 for 3 months of site membership
  • $95.40 for 6 months of site membership

 

5. No Real Time Meeting Will Ever Take Place

This is simply because all the dating profiles are fake, and even the women you see on the live cams are paid models and not real site members. If you do not notice the scam, SocialGator.com will keep sending you messages and keeping you entertained for as long as they can charge your credit card. No matter how real your communications seem on the site, they will never result in a real-life date or meeting.

EVIDENCE: “You understand, acknowledge, and agree that no physical meeting will ever take place between you and GB, and that the exchange of messages between you and a GB is for entertainment purposes, as well as to encourage further or broader participation in our site’s Services and/or to monitor user activities.”

The Verdict on SocialGator.com

It is quite clear by now that this site is not an online dating service, but rather an online scamming service. You are paying your hard-earned money to find a date and you end up wasting your time on a box of beautifully packed lies. Do not fall for it and do not forget to always read the terms and conditions of use. We know nobody wants to read this document really, but it can save you a lot of headache in the future.
