The online dating website DatePlayerTwo.com is aimed at gaming enthusiasts. The portal advertises with free registration, verified member profiles, and 24/7 customer support. Initially, the site seems to be a decent choice.
For this review, we took a closer look at what exactly DatePlayerTwo.com offers. We signed up, checked out the features and tools, and read the terms and conditions. Furthermore, we searched the web for user experiences and reviews. Unfortunately, the site does live up to the positive first impression. It is just another scam.
Dangerous subscriptions and fake profiles
To open and read incoming chat messages, a paid membership subscription is required. So, the free basic membership is useless. However, we cannot recommend anyone to sign up for any of the offered subscriptions. They all renew automatically and must be cancelled to avoid regular payments. But the site’s operator is known to make the cancellation process extremely complicated, in order to get as much money as possible out of each user. Therefore, it is a subscription rip-off.
Apart from the risky membership subscriptions, there is another major issue which must be mentioned. The members’ area contains so-called “test dating profiles”, which are created and controlled by the site’s employees. In our experience, such self-created fake profiles are used to send enticing chat messages to new users. The sole purpose is to lure them into the paid services as fast as possible. Since meeting these fictitious members in real life is impossible, chatting here is just a waste of time.
Here is an excerpt from the terms and conditions
From time to time, the Company employees (or employees of its parent or affiliated companies) may create test dating profiles for the purpose of checking and testing the functionality of our Website and Service to improve the quality and user experience for its Users.
DatePlayerTwo.com is operated by Desdemona Ltd, who are based in Dublin, in Ireland. This company runs numerous other dating websites, some of which we have already tested. Each of them turned out to be a rip-off. Online, Desdemona Ltd regularly receives negative reviews and complaints from former customers. So, we advise you to stay away from their websites.
