The online dating portal AdultDates.com has a solid first appearance. On the landing page, we see an image of an attractive couple. Also, the screen for registration is displayed right at the top of the homepage. After just a few seconds on the site, a notification pops up. We see a profile picture and a message from an attractive woman. It is a chat invitation. We are asked to register to chat with this woman. On the one hand, this makes a promising impression. On the other hand, it is obviously a fake message.
Besides that, the landing page makes a good first impression. The page provides a bit of information about the site. We read about adult dating in general, and what is so special about this target group. Actually, there is quite a lot of content on the landing page. Sadly, most of the content is completely useless. In the end, the service of the site is not described at all. So, we do not know what kind of features this site uses to find matches.
Plus, we found a hint about fake profiles. At the very bottom of the homepage, it is mentioned that persons appearing in photographs may not be actual members. However, we found the name of the operator. But, to reveal the operator’s name, we had to register. In general, this is a sign of an unreliable choice. The operator of the platform is Glondon Ltd, who are based in Nicosia, in Cyprus. This company is well-known for their scams. On the internet, we found many reviews about this operator.
Yes, the online dating platform AdultDates.com is a scam. The first hint of a bad choice is the lack of transparency. According to our experience, transparency is very important. Now, this site offers a lot of content on the landing page. But the content provided is mostly useless. Another hint of a bad choice is the missing information about the operator. In general, if the name of the operator is not provided, the company has something to hide. In this case, it is a rip-off with a fake chat and a subscription trap.
On the landing page, we found a short note about fake profiles. We read that the persons in the images on the site may not be actual members. On the one hand, it is positive that this notification is provided. On the other hand, the note is hidden at the very bottom of the homepage. Also, it does not explain the full scale of the moderation. Real dates are not possible here. Regarding reviews from former users, all profiles are fake. Also, the fake profiles are moderated by fake chat operators.
However, the fake chat scam is not the worst part of the site. That might sound awkward. But, if you made it onto the website, the subscription rip-off trap has snapped closed already. At the end of the registration process, a trial membership is offered. It is not possible to complete the registration without subscribing. Now, this trick is quite smart and cheeky. The trial membership is free and runs for two days. Of course, the offer sounds great. But it is an obvious trap.
The question appears, why subscribe for a two-day trial membership if it is free anyway? Then, the registration could be generally free. So, there must be a catch to it. On the payment page, a lot of great promises are stated. Moreover, the site claims that your credit card details are needed to verify your age. Of course, that is not true. There are additional details provided. But, compared to the advertising, it is not clearly visible. However, there is the proof of the subscription trap.
It is noted that after two days, the free trial membership will extend automatically. There is no way to avoid that. So, if you enter the website, you are caught in the trap already. Moreover, we found reviews about the difficult process of termination. The operator of this site is well-known. On the internet, we found reviews from former users. They explain that letters of termination will be ignored or declined without a reason.
By the way, we know the operator as well. We have reported on some other websites from the same company as well. So, if you spot the name of this company, be aware. All platforms managed by that operator are cheeky scams. Again, we must mention the non-existent chances of finding a match. We have proof of a fake chat. In this case, moderation is not used to lure new members into the trap. But, moderation is used to keep users in a good mood.
Fake chat operators animate users to chat. They will take the first step. While chatting, they will not identify. They will also not mention anything about moderation, or the purpose of virtual entertainment, as it is stated in the terms and conditions. Fake profiles are not specially marked, either. The fake chat operators will send promising messages with erotic content. This way, they make sure that paying users remain on the site. And, if the fake chat is revealed, the cancellation will be the next big challenge.
