Couples4Sex.com advertises free registration and claims to be a great place to arrange hot threesome adventures with gorgeous couples. At first sight, the platform looks trustworthy and legitimate. To find out if it is a good choice, we searched for user reviews online and studied the terms and conditions thoroughly. Unfortunately, the site turns out to be a scam.
Fake message scam
After we sign up, we quickly receive numerous message notifications. Unfortunately, we cannot open and read them unless we upgrade to a paid membership. Only paying subscribers are granted unlimited access to the chat feature. But in the terms and conditions, we read that these messages are fake anyway. They are sent by an automated system, so-called “chatbots”. With this cheeky trick, Couples4Sex.com is trying to make new users sign up for a subscription as quickly as possible.
Here is the excerpt from the terms and conditions
From time to time, we may offer users the ability to “Promote My Account” through Account Settings. Activating this service will mean automatically broadcasting custom messages created by any user, or selected from a default list of template messages, to other users. We reserve the right to select members to use the Promote My Account service. Sending messages through this service will be free. However, recipients who view and choose to reply to a Promote My Account message will require an upgraded Paid Membership to reply to the sender.
Couples4Sex.com offers several different options for membership subscriptions. As most of them are extremely expensive, the 3-day trial seems like a great offer. But in the fine print, we read that this trial will, once expired, be automatically converted to one of the expensive long-term subscriptions unless cancelled in time. The problem is it is impossible to cancel in time because the cancellation deadline and the duration of the trial are identical. Therefore, this is clearly a subscription trap.
The site’s operator is Marbore Web Solutions Limited, from Sofia, in Bulgaria. We have never heard about this company before, but we are very familiar with the design and the terms and conditions of the site. Many other rip-off companies use precisely the same website template and software. We have seen hundreds of these dating portals, and none of them is trustworthy. We are convinced that it is only a matter of time until we find the first negative reviews from disappointed users of Couples4Sex.com.
