How To Avoid Sex Doll Scams Online

Sex dolls are a super popular item with single men, and their popularity has only been skyrocketing, especially during the pandemic that brought us into isolation and loneliness.

The high demand is the very thing that made many sex doll manufacturers step up their game and develop more functional dolls with better details, more realistic features, and higher-quality materials.

This brings a lot of good news to most sex doll enjoyers; however, it also gives many opportunities to deceive unsuspecting or inexperienced customers who don’t see the red flags.

If you’ve been looking into buying a sex doll but you are afraid that you will be scammed, you came to the right place to do your research.

In this article, I will give you ten tips on how to avoid sex doll scams online and catch the red flags in time.

How To Avoid Sex Doll Scams

Don’t Rush Into Buying

If you want to buy the best sex doll for your pleasure, never rush into this decision and buy from the first website that appears on Google when you type “sex dolls.”

Take your time to do proper research and determine which website looks legit and has enough information on its products.

Also, read through the terms and conditions and see whether they satisfy you as a customer and make you feel comfortable buying from them.

And if you are still not certain, wait another day or so, and don’t let the excitement of your purchase overwhelm you, as this could potentially be a costly mistake.

The best thing to do is save 2-3 websites that you like, allow the excitement to go down a little bit, and get back to take a closer look at them a day or two later.

Do Your Research on The Product

So, once you’ve settled on a few websites that you want to take a closer look at, make sure to pick the sex doll that you like and do proper research on it.

Make sure that you can find all the necessary information on the sex doll you like most and want to purchase.

Make sure that you can see the height, weight, material type, general description, and more than one photo of the doll (ideally, look for photos from different angles, different placement positions, perhaps wearing different outfits, etc.)

Additionally, many websites also offer customization options, and this gives you the ability to choose everything you want your sex doll to have, down to the very last detail.

Customization is a costlier option, but it gives you a more personalized experience with your sex doll.

Carefully Inspect the Product Reviews

Fake reviews are everywhere, and this isn’t only a problem when it comes to sex dolls.

Every company, be it a makeup brand, a skincare brand, or even a fashion and accessories brand have fake reviews that help make the product look a bit better than it is.

But, fake reviews are easily recognized because these simply don’t look like a real customer wrote them and are typically generic and make little to no sense.

However, you have to be a little realistic when it comes to sex dolls because this isn’t something that millions of consumers buy daily, like makeup or clothes, for example.

So it is only natural that you probably won’t run into hundreds of reviews on that particular sex doll that caught your eye. When this is the case, your best bet is to do thorough research on the seller and also communicate with them, and request more information if needed.

Do Your Research on The Seller

When you want to invest in a pricey sex doll, you should always research the seller and make sure the seller is legit and that the company has your best interest and ultimate satisfaction in mind.

Also, make sure that the seller has a valid address, email, and contact number listed on the website that you can use to get in touch whenever you need to.

Many scammy websites don’t have a clear address or contact number because this would make it too easy to find out they aren’t legitimate, so it’s something you should definitely pay attention to while browsing a website that sells sex dolls.

Communicate With the Seller

If you have any questions or requests, don’t be embarrassed to communicate with the seller.

This is why the seller must have contact information listed on their website because, at the end of the day, you are paying for a pricey pleasure, so it’s your right to want to make sure everything is as it should be.

Also, when communicating with a seller, pay attention to their involvement as well as how they handle customer requests and how professionally they behave while communicating with you.

This will surely paint a good enough image on whether you should trust this seller or move on to something better.

Look Into the Refund Policies

This is also a very important thing you should look into before placing your order. Why? Because you are paying for an expensive item and you surely don’t want any unpleasant surprises.

Damages, although rare, may very well happen during transport and delivery, so it’s not impossible for items to arrive at your door with some sort of damage.

This is why it’s important to do business with a seller that will be ready to issue a full refund for your product because you surely don’t want to be stuck with damaged goods you paid a lot of money for.

Also, human mistakes are possible, too, so the doll might not arrive with the eye color you selected, let’s say. In this case, it is very important that you can contact your seller and receive a refund because the item wasn’t as expected.

Avoid Sites Like Aliexpress/Alibaba

Aliexpress and Alibaba are two extremely popular websites where you can find anything you can imagine, including sex dolls.

However, these two websites are also notorious for running scammy businesses and are the two places where you would undoubtedly get scammed even if you ordered a pen and a notebook from the wrong person.

So, unfortunately, sex dolls aren’t an exception. Should you order a sex doll from here and even pay hundreds or even a couple of thousand dollars for it, don’t be surprised if a cheap, blow-up doll arrives at your door.

They also use pictures from real sex dolls to make you think that they have the doll you’ve been eyeing on another website for much cheaper, but this isn’t worth the risk.

Therefore, avoid these two websites and always look for a reputable seller, instead.

Incredibly Cheap Prices Are a Red Flag

Sorry to tell you this, dear buyer, but if you just paid for a beautiful but ridiculously low-priced sex goddess, the chances are that you won’t receive the same product you fell in love with from seeing the pictures.

Sales, discounts, and promotions are one thing, and reputable sellers often offer these, but incredibly low prices are a major red flag because a decent sex doll that was built with high-quality materials like silicone and TPE isn’t a cheap pleasure.

These modern lovers are usually a pricey investment that will be sure to last you for years with adequate maintenance and proper care.

However, if a place like Aliexpress, Alibaba, or Amazon seems to be selling a real life-sized doll with beautiful features but costs under $500, this is usually always a scammy business you need to avoid.

Low-Quality Websites are a Red Flag

Low-quality websites with weird functions which are laid out in an off-beat way are also some red flags you should pay attention to.

When going through descriptions or posts on a company’s website, make sure to read through the structure of the sentences and pay attention to detail.

If there are many incorrect words or improper use of words, and also badly formed sentences, perhaps, you should either stay away from that website or, if you see something you really like on there, try to communicate with the seller and make an informed decision by the outcome of the conversation.

Also, pay attention to how easy it is to navigate the pages on the website, as this is something that shouldn’t be a hassle at all.

Pictures shouldn’t be scattered all over the place, and if some links aren’t working or categories aren’t displaying properly, it seems that the company doesn’t really care much for their business as much as they care for taking your money.

Shipping Terms & Conditions

Sex dolls generally take anywhere between 2-3 weeks to be created and delivered, depending on where you live and where you are ordering the sex doll from.

The seller should always inform you when the doll is shipped so that you can expect it at your door and not have to deal with an unpleasant surprise if the doll arrives when you least expect it.

Additionally, avoid purchasing an expensive sex doll from sellers that will not provide you with a tracking number because this can very easily turn out to be a costly mistake. Without a tracking number, you won’t be able to find your sex doll in case it gets lost, and this is something you won’t be able to prove either.
