BromoDates.com is not so different from other websites from Norfex Holdings Ltd. All of them are scams and subscription rip-offs. Probably the main difference is that BromoDates.com is designed for the gay community. Apart from that, all the rest, including the interface, is basically the same as all the websites from Norfex Holdings Ltd. Of course, this includes the subscription traps.
We could not find any information about prices before registering. However, right after registration, the costs showed up. Basically, any action we tried on the platform, including chatting, or seeing any profile, ended up on the payment page. Prices for a month are around 35 USD. Nevertheless, we got an offer for a cheap 3-day trial for just a dollar. This sounds fishy because we have experience with this kind of cheap membership. So, we read the billing policy to find out if this could be a subscription rip-off.
This is an extract from the billing policy
To make it simpler for you, the three-day trial membership plan will automatically convert to our monthly package at the standard non-promotional rate at the end of your three-day trial period, if you don’t cancel your membership before the trial expires.
The auto-renewal is not always a scam. But our experience made us read once again the cancellation policy in the terms and conditions, and here is what we found.
The following excerpt is from the terms and conditions
All paid subscriptions automatically renew for the period and price that you signed up to. You may cancel the auto-renew feature to avoid recurring charges, but you must act at least 3 days (that is, 72 hours) prior to the renewal date if you subscribed via desktop application.
This means, that if we subscribe to the cheap 3-day trial, and we do not cancel right away, it will be converted into a monthly package. This is certainly a subscription trap and a scam.
