My Shagbook Experience.

Shagbook is a well advertised casual dating website and through personal experience I found it seemed to have very few real female users as I was bombarded with messages instantly by people constantly moving town and then disappearing.

Real female users do obviously exist on shagbook and I believe it is free at the time of writing this review for female users to reply to messages but the male has to pay to subscribe.

Shagbook review continued…

Fake automated profiles seem to be used on shagbook, this is purely speculation though… They seem to have used fake pictures and they message and spam you everyday to get you to sign up to premium status so you can message them back, your email inbox is also spammed with constant notifications of people saying “Hi” even though you havent even uploaded a description or let alone a picture! (Thats surely not right when your male!)

These profiles also seem to constantly change county within hours of messaging you and often “close their account” shortly after messaging.

Oh and to anyone reading, If you think the reviews here are slanderous and designed to harm businesses, they are not but unfortunately thats inevitable if a dating website owner provides a shoddy or dodgy service. These are just honest consumer reviews of personal experiences designed to help and prevent users from being ripped off or having a bad experience. Unfortunately most users that visit this website are victims of many various types of dating website fraud or have generally had a bad experience with a website. Why not perform an investigation of your own and create an account on any of the websites listed and draw your own conclusion? If your a business owner and your site is listed here, only email me if your prepared to have your email content displayed on this website, afterall what do you have to hide, you can always comment and share your views?

To also clear another matter up, this website is not designed to profit from the advertisements related to the websites listed here, I dont make much money from the PPC affiliate adverts displayed on this website at all. I can tell you that I have made less than a 3 figure number in over 2 years, so I hardly profit from displaying the related content advertisements by google as users of this site will only click on adverts they are interested in.

Share your personal honest review and experiences with this casual dating website known as shagbook.

Quite correct, we believe that many of the people shown on this site don’t even know they’re on it! It’s the same site as maritalaffair and forgetdinner to name just two but there are many others…


2 Me May 18, 2011 at 7:18 pm


It’s a total rip off. Most of the messages you get are automated. There are 3 or 4 standard “icebreakers” that the site sends men, presumably without the knowledge or consent of the women whose profiles bombard your mailbox.

It’s a total rip off for men because they pay for membership. I think women can become members for free.

I am currently signed up to shagbook to see for myself that this is a scam, I don’t pay any subscription to set up a profile with no pics, but if I want to read messages I have to pay… something I never done, last bankholiday reading these messages were free for a short period if time, and yes all 92 of them looked automated
I do think there is genuine women on here but maybe just 1 every four pages, even then that’s a desperate overweight granny ha ha..
I would also like to add has any1 looked at instanthotdates, I’m not desperate or a stalker perv in any way and don’t find it hard to talk with women but on this site accounts get deactivated or lame excuses get made about contact/meeting even when I tried weeks of chat with 1 woman, I was so sure this would end up in a meeting, but she made the excuse that she was cought using the computer at university in Bristol and told delete your account or get kicked out of university, what a load of ball that was… Come on people has any1 actually met up with woman on these sites ???

Hi i done this not so long ago I WAS DONE BIG TIME £ 100 forget the website.


6 doc August 16, 2011 at 12:17 pm

I met 2 REAL women in a month from subscribing and not grannies. Astonishing I must agree. The only site I got somewhere.


7 relkeel August 19, 2011 at 12:22 am

Shagbook (others in the same stable include Marital Affair, Forget Dinner, My Fun Buddy, Elite Affair to name but a few) is one of the few sites where the majority of women are genuine. They have done a lot lately to tighten up on the women who join just to lure men into paying for cam action or some other dodgy thing. I’ve personally had a lot of success on Shagbook. I’ve met 5 women from it and am still seeing three of them and not just for coffee :-) Yes, there are automated messages. Quick tip, if you have received a message/wink from a lady, see if she has first view your profile. If not, it’s an automated message, often outside of the control of the lady herself. So guys, be gentlemen, be patient and you will get laid. There are a lot of guys on there, most of them dick heads, so stand out and you should be ok.

This site is a rip off they rely on people being afraid of going to their credit card company’s, when they renew your membership with out your permission.
I had my cash returned after I told them I were reporting them for fraudulently changing my account back to renew, after I had canceled it, I took a screen shot of the page before I logged out that day and one next morning showing it reactivated.
General profiles 30 to 39 always looking for a soul mate, not into having sex, always single, always never had children, age does not matter, always want to know if your single, do you have kids, they always live in the UK, Europe, and USA, but have had a tragedy, father, or mother or both died and had to go live in West Africa, Ghana, but beware they leave if a number starts +233 it is Ghana if it is +234 it is Nigeria and always give you their yahoo account address or ask for yours.
If you can keep one on the site which is rear, if you refuse to give them your account they claim you are playing games, and tell you they are not interested.
The second is the number of girls that want cam action to get you to a cam site. Then you have the the who lives in the same town as you and agrees to meet, either by going to a cam site and joining, or asks you to get a card to prove your not a raving maniac,
Most other profiles you never see them on line, they have hundreds on line but it is always the same woman on the on line page now, and the meet today page is normally no pictures and it is rare that they reply. luckily I only took out a months subscription, I have found a profile of a ex girl friend who,s photograph shows her when she were 35 she is now 50 and when I informed her she checked it out, emailed them told them she were taking court action, it has now been removed.
It is a site that is a total scam like the rest of their sites same woman

Erm… the shagbook website is a blatant scam, it is full of fake profiles. I cant believe anyone actually is gullible enough to subscribe!! Even though I admit I have been conned in the past. I have only seen a couple of girls on this site that are genuine and who are on other uk swinger and dating sites I have joined. Please do yourself a favour and avoid at all costs, I wouldn’t be suprised if the comments above are unlikely to be genuine and probably written by the creators of the site or affiliates of them. An example amongst many would be a shit load of messages from black women when you can count the amount of black people on one hand and know them all in this area, if your gonna use fake profiles at least know the areas lol. Con, con.. con! Join the site yourself and you will see what I mean, I wonder if any of the sites listed on this website have been reported to trading standards or the police as most are blatant fraud!! They are plenty of free dating sites you can use nowadays which are genuine and totally free which arent in your free dating site list, you might want to add to that list.


10 marc August 22, 2011 at 1:01 pm

It is a very elaborate scam. They would go as far baiting you with false email of interest and then …pfft nothing.


11 SimpyBest September 2, 2011 at 1:08 pm

Unfortunately, I discovered this site after I’d been had. But, better late than never. I suggest all bloggers on this site make a complaint direct to the Office of Fair Trading (OFT). If enough people do the same then something might be done about this SCAM.


12 onlyme December 5, 2011 at 11:23 am

Unlucky for me iv been had by shagbook I had the same msg off 26 women saying the same thing lets get this site closed down i lost hundreds.


13 sam September 16, 2011 at 8:35 pm

total scam i messaged every woman good bad and ugly old and young and didnt recieve one genuine reply


14 johnie October 28, 2011 at 1:04 am

same goes for – paid for premium but none of the users are real.


15 total scam November 17, 2011 at 8:14 pm

I totally agree with you.


16 zhadowz November 27, 2011 at 10:36 am

It is dodgy i have had a little success but my inbox is full of spam i keep getting asked to join devilspass which is a $100 join fee. Also i have two supposedly different woman i have met who are using the same pic i first saw the pic in July on another user and today same pic diff name diff location there are reall woman on the site but they are just a drop inna the ocean compared to how many fakes are on it.


17 onlyme December 7, 2011 at 8:34 am

i had the same thing happen to me i was asked to join like a TW*T i did £80 later the profile that asked me to do it went inactive on me “funny that”, Iv also seen the same person (women) in 2 diffrent profiles.
This needs to be stopped.


18 Dave November 27, 2011 at 2:50 pm

I’m sorry you all had such bad experiences on shagbook. Yes, there are a lot of automated messages and bogus profiles but I had reasonable success on there. I was a full member from march to November 20110 and in that time met (and had sex with) 11 different women ranging from 27 to 50 years old. I am 51.
If a guy is reasonably physically fit and can hold a decent conversation then its quite easy to “pull” on there.


19 onlyme December 7, 2011 at 8:38 am

So how long have you worked for shagbook then!!!!!!!!!!!


20 Anonymous November 27, 2011 at 5:06 pm

I’ve just discovered photos of me and my real name on shag book and I certainly haven’t put them on there!!!


21 Dave November 29, 2011 at 5:55 am

Hi. Someone obviously had your pics in order to put them on there. That must narrow it down?


22 john December 21, 2011 at 7:08 pm

dave we know you work for them


23 rokton November 27, 2011 at 5:40 pm

completily scam ,fake add,blody web page,also some post on this blog are fake answer from shagbook staff.Thanx


24 E January 6, 2012 at 2:54 pm

They are all scammers for money unless you find one that’s free
And are totally honest in your profile what you want
That way you don’t miss lead nice people
And everyone’s happy right.


25 dawn January 20, 2012 at 7:42 pm

i found an email from shagbook in my longterm boyfriends hotmail account saying he had signed up ( to a free package). after visiting the site and viewing the disgraceful pictures of these obviously very insacure women who seriously lack any self respect i was obviously not at all happy and it very nearly ended our relationship, i have since found out he had never heard of this disgusting desperste site and after emailing the support team asking them to delete his account all they had to say back was ”why not upgrade?” everyone is free to do or visit any site they like but this one almost destroyed our lives, its a form of slander surely?!


26 Jason January 23, 2012 at 7:58 pm

you mention insecure women who lack self respect, may I ask why you are reading your boyfriends emails


27 Fast Bill April 6, 2012 at 10:04 am

Well said Jason


28 Onelife May 24, 2012 at 10:04 pm

Ha thats great!


29 james June 14, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Well, she has a bit of a point in her comments but then so do the guys replies.
The comments that all girls who post on such sites as shagbook are “insecure women who seriously lack any self respect” is merely judging others by her own set of rules, principles, morals & her own sexual hormone levels. Im not attacking her (although it might appear so) but its a standard band wagon to jump on in defence of womans rights etc.. Its nice to agree but i just cant. Women are all different and some have strong sexual drives and desires and others are only in a relationship types and some have a vagina made of stone. No ones at fault just everyones different. If any of the girls are genuine and some must be they are human and ave the right to a full sexual adventure in their life without the curse of the english middle class. Take my wife… (not literally lol), she’s not english and after 30 years of english girls i didnt realise its all very different with other cultures too. She has none of the hang ups of the “UK Media Woman” and im never returning to the types i used to go out with again. A breath of fresh air. Im certain what works inside this ladies relationship which we must respect is being projected on others who dont hold her view and dont want to either. Real girls on this site are driven in an entirely different way right? bloomin hell what a rant.. sorry im distracted from the scam subject here.

I was had by this shagbook website but it appears you can’t access the site anymore, does anyone know how i can cancel my debit card??


34 Pete August 11, 2012 at 3:51 pm



35 Jamie January 27, 2012 at 3:29 pm

Payment Scam on site – click on 1month upgrade and they charged me 6 months, called them to complain and they were actually quite rude – said because i had sent one mail they would not refund the money or even reduce the term of membership

did not receive any mails about membership or receipt of payment – absolute terrible smash and grab by them

must be some way to get these kind of people back where it hurts, closing the site down will help others in the future but what about those who have been victim of their scam


36 Mr_sleazy January 31, 2012 at 4:43 pm

What a shame as well. How hard must it be to set up a site with thousands of genuine nsa fun seekers and just make ur money off ads?


37 lame March 5, 2012 at 6:32 pm

this has been a big help..cheers


38 relkeel March 16, 2012 at 9:43 am

Shagbook shares its profiles with more than a dozen other sites. I have been using it on and off for a couple of years. In my experience there are in fact not many fake profiles on there and those that are, are generally removed pretty quickly once reported to site support. This has improved greatly in the past year. The automated messages sent out are annoying and I have complained about them to the site – maybe if more did it, they would stop. A quick tip is, if you receive a message, check to see if the lady in question has viewed your profile. If not, it is an automated message, so ignore it. There are plenty of genuine ladies on the site, about 6 of whom I have met and am still friends with. I believe the site (and its related sites) are the best of those available if you’re looking for a bit extra :-) Now the likes of BeNaughty, XXXCupid, SexSearch, etc, they are real cons! I suppose some of you cynical types might think that I’m associated with Shagbook – well that’s your choice – all I can say is that my opinion is genuine. My only real issue with the site is the ratio of men to women which probably runs into the hundreds to one! So it is hard getting noticed, but there are a few things I’ve learnt over the past couple of years that work. Also, most of the guys on there are dick heads who think all they have to say to a lady is ‘fancy a shag’ and they’ll get one.


39 M March 16, 2012 at 1:45 pm

They have taken money from me…………If I don’t get it back, their offices / company cars are in for it…….no messing… serious…….


40 Fast Bill April 6, 2012 at 10:06 am

Good idea go for it M


41 S March 25, 2012 at 11:03 am

I paid for one month an just checked my credit card online an they hav taken 2 payments , plus like said this site is full of scams prob only 1 in 10 girls are real .


42 Bard April 11, 2012 at 5:13 pm

Shagbook and at least three other sites are complete scammers as mentioned above. I know this because I joined three sites run by the same company and everyday got mailed by the same profiles which existed on all these sites. Total scam merchants.


43 DC Barnell April 14, 2012 at 2:20 pm

I am activly involved with several agencies in the UK investigating websites like Shagbook, the days are numbered for these type of “confidence” tricksters.

Most of these sites are run by Pimps and Ex Sex Workers or organised criminals.


44 Rob Simpson April 19, 2012 at 5:58 pm

U guys are having a larf? been on the site for bout three months, I’v had non stop shagging from day one! fakes? only fakes I’ve come across r the ones you want to cum across!

Sum of u guys need to get out more.


45 Dumbass me 11111 April 26, 2012 at 9:45 pm

I don’t Care Who runs This Site Pimps Pushers’ Or Greedy Money Hungry Ect ect I cancelled my membership a couple weeks ago I don’t care if this site funds criminal underworld activity i know there are plenty of ways to skin a RAT. But If You Are Going To Suffer In Silence When you find out you are getting robbed steer clear of shagbook


46 mcw May 1, 2012 at 1:25 am

Well from the woman point of view im 18 and signed up as for free automatically. And I’ve met 4 guys off there.
The thing is some of you men arnt on our taste so we don’t reply.
It’s not a scam I don’t think you just got to be clever on the real and fakes. :) though they keep deleting my profiles! :@


47 sean May 10, 2012 at 8:15 pm



48 jemma June 10, 2012 at 3:45 pm

im 37f been on shagbook 6 months now met loads nice guys and some nobs. now guys moaning you cant get a woman try not put can i fuck you or rubbish like that . i NEVER answer emails like that


49 james June 14, 2012 at 1:04 pm

wow, its bad enough to work through the pro’s and con’s of the site but to hear they are taking double payments (Quoting “S” above), and clicking on 1 month upgrade and being charged for 6 months is very serious. I almost took the risk and paid for my upgrade until i read that. thats bad.


50 james June 14, 2012 at 1:07 pm

I would like to see more female shagbook posts and comments on here. If your real and have positive experiences please post !


51 Funnygal August 6, 2012 at 3:27 am

Bear with me it’s a long post!!

I’m female and am a member for nearly a month now. As soon as I signed up I was immediately ‘upgraded’ to VIP for free, and I think it runs out when I’m 70, it may be older lol! I get a LOT of attention from guys, some good some bad. One of the first guys I chatted to, mentioned that he felt it was a rip off at £20 a month as he felt that most of the profiles on there were fake, and it made a change to talk to someone real. I was very surprised, as naively I assumed that men’s membership was also free.

Shortly after i signed up (within a couple of days) I started to received messages from guys thanking me for my message, (RE: One Step At A Time) would I like to chat, do I want a good seeing to, blah blah blah!! I’d not even tried to message anyone at this point, so I know the original messages definitely weren’t from me! I checked through my account and there is no option whatsoever to turn off these automated messages, and upon further investigation, there is no option to delete photos either. I actually came across this thRead tonight while searching online for info on how to delete your photos and there is none. I have asked customer services about deleting my photos, as I’ve been chatting to someone who’s got me all insanely RRRRRAAAAWWWRRRRR and will be meeting soon ;-) )) but it didn’t occur to me until writing this to ask them about the automated messages as well. As a woman I want to be in control of who I send messages to, as believe me there are some freaks and weirdos out there!!
Equally there are automated messages coming from the men, which I suspect again they know nothing about either, Let Me Entertain You, (original huh?) being one of them.

I’ve briefly been on F*ckbook, AdultFriendFinder, and a couple of others, but I liked Shagbook because it was free. The others I’ve mentioned, all want you to pay to upgrade to talk to members, enter chatrooms etc. I think one even wants you to upgrade to reply to other members (pardon the pun!)

I think you guys are getting a raw deal, as at the end of the day, no matter how you look at it, basically it’s discrimination, and there are definitely laws against that. I know there are some that wouldn’t want to draw attention to themselves, but surely there’s a few of you who have nothing to lose by taking them on?

I agree with Jemma as well, I never reply to messages saying I wanna fuck you, or I wanna cum over your face n tits etc.

You’re paying for it, so bloody well sell yourselves and make an effort with your profile!! None of this my wife don’t understand me crap, we don’t want to hear any of that, if you wanna moan how unhappy you are at home go see a therapist!! It’s not what we’re there for, or want to hear. Be funny and honest in your profile DO say if you’re married, DO be honest about what you’re into, and what you want (one offs, long term affairs etc).

Try sending long imaginative sensual messages, get her juices flowing (and I mean LITERALLY) if you want her to respond to you…IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS BABY!!! ;-) )) x

Incidentally I got a lot of attention because my profile’s funny, I was honest and set out exactly what I was after, amazing how many men reckon I’m their perfect woman, my profile matches exactly what they’re after etc, yeah right…yaawwwwnnn!!! Like I said it’s all in the DETAILS ;-) )) x


52 Dave July 28, 2012 at 5:07 pm

Was on songbook for 3 months last year during which time a met and shagged 5 women. I’ve been back on for a month now and already been through 4 women. If you aren’t a total minger and can have a conversation this site is so easy to pull.
Was also on a site called badoo for a couple months and had sex with 3 from there.


53 Gringo August 2, 2012 at 11:06 am



54 J August 5, 2012 at 3:54 pm

Yep absolute scam and they won’t let me cancel without phoning a premium number. I also suspect they are blocking my messages to people after I hurled abuse at them for coning people.

Really winds me up.


55 Funnygal August 6, 2012 at 3:36 am

Another thing try calling your banks to get money back on your credit cards, as these were unauthorised payments, site’s owners or something are White Label Dating, are the payments processessed on your card statements as this? May even be worth complaining to White Label Dating directly…


56 nath September 10, 2012 at 11:12 am

ive also been had by this site signed up for a 3 day trial but i want to cancel the subscription before i get billed £49 but cant get through to anybody need help


57 Anonymous September 24, 2012 at 9:51 am

i had a 3 day trial, and low and behold in the process of looking at my bank statement online, i see a charge for £79-99, i did eventually get through to customer service, but was told it was my mistake and they would not refund the money, when i complained they instantly blocked me from signing into my account, so now i can`t even get on the site to complain again to them, and as many others have said, not only is the site a massive scam, but even the site owners scam you…stay away from SHAGBOOK.COM its nothing but a massive scam site


58 shady sean October 20, 2012 at 6:30 am

just go your local town centre look for the nightclub reflex or flares there in most towns.If you cant get the ride in there,your fucked,pay for it. be aware shit music,use protection shagbook exspensive russian roulette


59 Robert November 15, 2012 at 3:46 am

Elaborate scam! Fke profiles, I just cant believe how anyone is so gullible to think that all these women message without even seeing a picture of you and are sat there with their legs wide open waiting for a bit of c*ck.

One word, gullible if you subscribe.


60 Roy Keen January 9, 2013 at 8:48 pm

Complete con. They only make us sappy blokes pay to join, then you discover that thanks to the wonderful inbox filter that you can only contact a small percentage of the women anyway. Then factor in most of these deluded women expect every bloke to look like George Clooney or Bradd Pitt and you`ll see its an immense waste of time. They let you subscribe online but wont let you cancel online. You have to waste up to 30 minutes ringing them up to cancel. Dont join, it really is a waste of time. You`ve got more chance of finding a woman to have fun with by painting your $#*! purple and standing in Trafalgar Square shouting “suck my **** its Blackpool Rock”


61 K April 16, 2013 at 3:40 pm

I can’t access my shagbook profile. I’ve had to make a new one, just to be denied access to that too. Fucking waste of time!


62 Mrknowitall July 12, 2013 at 11:03 pm

Hi fella’s, I figured out its all one company that’s behind all these scams, yes I use the word scam, it’s a company called white label dating, they scam lads from shagbook, myfunbuddy etc etc, I’ve notice the same fake profiles/girls on across all these sites, yes I got had off on my fun buddy
