The starting page of the website D8US.com invites the visitors to sign up directly because all they need to find a partner is the first message. Sounds great, and the preview of some member profiles looks great as well. But we do some research on the internet and find plenty of negative reports from users who have had bad experiences with the portal and the operator. The people complain that the member's pool is full of fake profiles operated by faked moderators to lure people into expensive VIP memberships. In the terms and conditions, we found some evidence.
Here are the excerpts
The Website is an entertainment service, and you agree to use the Website and Service at your own risk.
From time to time, the Company employees (or employees of its parent or affiliated companies) may create test dating profiles.
Memberships come with automatic renewal
Besides luring the new members with fictitious profiles and plenty of fake chat inquiries into expensive VIP memberships, the subscriptions themselves are a big rip-off. The subscription will automatically renew if the user misses the termination period. This alone is not a scam, but just ignoring the cancellation is. The operator from Florida in the United States of America, Sensate Inc, also likes to double or triple the deductible amounts and even charge the members for services they have never used.
Doing our review and reading all the bad experiences about the operator and his network, we are not surprised that there are also claims regarding massive data sharing on the portal D8US.com. The website is a big scam from the beginning. It starts with missing information on the landing page about additional costs. Later, the members will be forced to sign up for an expensive membership just to read, write messages and see the profiles. Lured into the subscription by moderators with faked profiles, the users soon find out they will not be able to terminate the VIP membership.
