www.donnaplay.com - a Fraudulent Website

The website "www.donnaplay.com," which claims it lets you play games, listen music, read books, watch movies and download software directly in your browser or download on your phone, computer and tablet, is being condemned or criticized by online users who have tried the service. So, is DonnaPlay a scam or not? Based on the information that we have gathered about the website "www.donnaplay.com" from our research, we have considered it to be a deceptive website and do not recommend using it.

www.donnaplay.com - a Fraudulent Website

Let us start with their cancellation policy. The website claims that they offer a 5-day trial period, but they will force you to use their “Express Online Cancellation service,” which will charge you $1. Please see the cancellation instructions below.

The Website's Deceptive Cancellation Request

Cancel your account immediately with our Express Online Cancellation service. Paying a small fee of just $0.99 ($1.00 during trial) will push your cancellation request to the top of the queue so it is effective immediately. You will receive an email confirming the details of your cancellation shortly after.

This is a very tricky way of deceiving people in a legal way. How can a company or organization offer a free trial and then ask their customers to pay a fee to cancel before it ends. And, why is there is an Online Express cancellation service that the company claims will put a request at the top of the queue. I think the owner of www.donnaplay.com takes its users for fools, or is just outright scamming them.

Also, the website advertise hundreds of movies, books, games and music titles that are not available on their website. They use the deceptive advertisements to trick online users into visiting their website.

We have gotten a lot of complaints about the website, which is similar to www.lilplay.com and have listed some of them below.

Some of the Complaints We Have Received About DonnaPlay

  • “TOTAL SCAM!!! Don't sign up not only do they take your money when they say they won't,( $100 nz dollars in my case) the downloads don't exist. You will get nothing! Then when you go to cancel the subscription they ask you to pay more for 'express cancellation' so you won't be charged more before the next billing. The cheek of it! I distrust so much I've cancelled and renewed my credit card.”

  • “This is a scam online streaming service site that is fraudulent. They This site attempts to place a stealth charge on the unsuspecting mark's credit card by charging to cancel a "free" trial subscription or by automatically charging for a subscription. Very illegal.”

  • “It is shameful what this company is doing. I did a search on Google looking to watch "Alien" the original movie. I find a link, click it, and a big HD screen opens up as if a movie is about to play, complete with a "This Film Has Been Approved For All Audiences" Green screen. This should have tipped me off right away, because Alien is rated R. Well right away the screen pops up a button which reminds me that I have to "Log In" in order to continue streaming. This "log In" button, not surprisingly, leads to a typical Registration page. The problem is, DonnaPlay screams over and over that the site is free, that they only need credit card info to verify address, blah blah blah. So I give my credit card info, again where they keep saying $0 Free Membership. As soon as I am all signed up I go to DonnaPlay to find "Alien" and THEY DONT EVEN HAVE THE MOVIE! I wouldn't have minded even paying a small fee to watch the movie, but they don't even have it! So now I have given my credit card info over to LIARS! Unbelievable how sites like this are so rampant! I am cautious, and have been on the Internet for 15 years, and these bastards GOT ME! I called their 1-888-983-0264 and pressed 0 to talk to an agent. As soon as I got someone on the line I asked where they are located. She said India. I then proceeded to outline exactly what I was going to do to their company. I won't repeat what I said here. SCAM! STAY AWAY! They have NO GOOD CONTENT, only the same old tired crap you find on Netflix, except Netflix has about 20 times the content for much cheaper!!!”

  • “I wanted live streaming of "French Open" tennis May 31 2015 and got redirected to donnaplay. Paid total 2390.72 INR for premium access and immediately realized that there is no live streaming at all. Cancelled the membership next moment and was promised partial refund within few days, well its one month and no sign of money. No proper reply on contacting customer support. Also they are holding my card information and not cancelling my free membership. And the most ridiculous thing is they are even charging for "EXPRESS CANCELLATION". How weird it can get ??”

  • “Seems to be that tzarmedia.com, the well-known scam artist, is operating under donnaplay.com. Same company-- same stealing of publications and/or using photos of books as baits. Just avoid.”

  • “We were directed to this website from a link on a YouTube site. After signing up the movie was nowhere to be found. When I checked here (should have done that first), all indications are bad. Thankfully I use prepaid cards for web services. The downside is I had to cancel my card and they have absconded with my wife’s email address. Its ok though, any email we get from them will be registered as spam with google and all the other services like failtoban etc. I will follow up with YouTube customer service. If this is a US based company, there may be grounds for a Federal Trade Commission consumer fraud action. This old bait and switch tactic was outlawed decades ago.”

Recently, I accidentally found the following URL on the Internet: signup.donnaplay.com. Surprisingly, similar URLs such as the Reginaa Foundation's name on Facebook circulated the request to join and promote the 5-10 group to get the new crown. The virus epidemic affects people who need money urgently.

Online Threat Alerts Security Tips

Pay the safest way

Credit cards are the safest way to pay for online purchases because you can dispute the charges if you never get the goods or services or if the offer was misrepresented. Federal law limits your liability to $50 if someone makes unauthorized charges to your account, and most credit card issuers will remove them completely if you report the problem promptly.

Guard your personal information

In any transaction you conduct, make sure to check with your state or local consumer protection agency and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to see if the seller, charity, company, or organization is credible. Be especially wary if the entity is unfamiliar to you. Always call the number found on a website’s contact information to make sure the number legitimately belongs to the entity you are dealing with.

Be careful of the information you share

Never give out your codes, passwords or personal information, unless you are sure of who you're dealing with

Know who you’re dealing with

Crooks pretending to be from companies you do business with may call or send an email, claiming they need to verify your personal information. Don’t provide your credit card or bank account number unless you are actually paying for something and know who you are sending payment to. Your social security number should not be necessary unless you are applying for credit. Be especially suspicious if someone claiming to be from a company with whom you have an account asks for information that the business already has.

Check your accounts

Regularly check your account transactions and report any suspicious or unauthorised transactions.

Don’t believe promises of easy money

If someone claims that you can earn money with little or no work, get a loan or credit card even if you have bad credit, or make money on an investment with little or no risk, it’s probably a scam. Oftentimes, offers that seem too good to be true, actually are too good to be true.

Do not open email from people you don’t know

If you are unsure whether an email you received is legitimate, try contacting the sender directly via other means. Do not click on any links in an email unless you are sure it is safe.

Think before you click

If an email or text message looks suspicious, don’t open any attachments or click on the links.

Verify urgent requests or unsolicited emails, messages or phone calls before you respond

If you receive a message or a phone call asking for immediate action and don't know the sender, it could be a phishing message.

Be careful with links and new website addresses

Malicious website addresses may appear almost identical to legitimate sites. Scammers often use a slight variation in spelling or logo to lure you. Malicious links can also come from friends whose email has unknowingly been compromised, so be careful.

Secure your personal information

Before providing any personal information, such as your date of birth, Social Security number, account numbers, and passwords, be sure the website is secure.

Stay informed on the latest cyber threats

Keep yourself up to date on current scams by visiting this website daily.

Use Strong Passwords

Strong passwords are critical to online security.

Keep your software up to date and maintain preventative software programs

Keep all of your software applications up to date on your computers and mobile devices. Install software that provides antivirus, firewall, and email filter services.

Update the operating systems on your electronic devices

Make sure your operating systems (OSs) and applications are up to date on all of your electronic devices. Older and unpatched versions of OSs and software are the target of many hacks. Read the CISA security tip on Understanding Patches and Software Updates for more information.

What if You Got Scammed?

Stop Contact With The Scammer

Hang up the phone. Do not reply to emails, messages, or letters that the scammer sends. Do not make any more payments to the scammer. Beware of additional scammers who may contact you claiming they can help you get your lost money back.

Secure Your Finances

  • Report potentially compromised bank account, credit or debit card information to your financial institution(s) immediately. They may be able to cancel or reverse fraudulent transactions.
  • Notify the three major credit bureaus. They can add a fraud alert to warn potential credit grantors that you may be a victim of identity theft. You may also want to consider placing a free security freeze on your credit report. Doing so prevents lenders and others from accessing your credit report entirely, which will prevent them from extending credit:

Check Your Computer

If your computer was accessed or otherwise affected by a scam, check to make sure that your anti-virus is up-to-date and running and that your system is free of malware and keylogging software. You may also need to seek the help of a computer repair company. Consider utilizing the Better Business Bureau’s website to find a reputable company.

Change Your Account Passwords

Update your bank, credit card, social media, and email account passwords to try to limit further unauthorized access. Make sure to choose strong passwords when changing account passwords.

Report The Scam

Reporting helps protect others. While agencies can’t always track down perpetrators of crimes against scammers, they can utilize the information gathered to record patterns of abuse which may lead to action being taken against a company or industry.

Report your issue to the following agencies based on the nature of the scam:

  • Local Law Enforcement: Consumers are encouraged to report scams to their local police department or sheriff’s office, especially if you lost money or property or had your identity compromised.
  • Federal Trade Commission: Contact the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or use the Online Complaint Assistant to report various types of fraud, including counterfeit checks, lottery or sweepstakes scams, and more.
  • Identitytheft.gov: If someone is using your personal information, like your Social Security, credit card, or bank account number, to open new accounts, make purchases, or get a tax refund, report it at www.identitytheft.gov. This federal government site will also help you create your Identity Theft Report and a personal recovery plan based on your situation. Questions can be directed to 877-ID THEFT.

How To Recognize a Phishing Scam

Scammers use email or text messages to try to steal your passwords, account numbers, or Social Security numbers. If they get that information, they could get access to your email, bank, or other accounts. Or they could sell your information to other scammers. Scammers launch thousands of phishing attacks like these every day — and they’re often successful.

Scammers often update their tactics to keep up with the latest news or trends, but here are some common tactics used in phishing emails or text messages:

Phishing emails and text messages often tell a story to trick you into clicking on a link or opening an attachment. You might get an unexpected email or text message that looks like it’s from a company you know or trust, like a bank or a credit card or utility company. Or maybe it’s from an online payment website or app. The message could be from a scammer, who might

  • say they’ve noticed some suspicious activity or log-in attempts — they haven’t
  • claim there’s a problem with your account or your payment information — there isn’t
  • say you need to confirm some personal or financial information — you don’t
  • include an invoice you don’t recognize — it’s fake
  • want you to click on a link to make a payment — but the link has malware
  • say you’re eligible to register for a government refund — it’s a scam
  • offer a coupon for free stuff — it’s not real
