Beware of www.donnaplay.com - a Fraudulent Website
May 26, 2016
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.
Please continue reading below.
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.”
