The online dating website DatingForScientists.com has an interesting offer. This platform aims at educated singles. According to the information on the landing page, this site is for scientists and other singles, who hold higher degrees. Well, the offer might sound interesting. But the information on the landing page is misleading and wrong. We did some research on the internet. While doing our research, we found many negative reviews. This site has a bad reputation. That is reason enough to skip it. However, we found reports about a scam. Former users explain how it works.
It starts right after registration. New members receive a lot of messages from other members. These messages appear to be fake. We found many reviews about the use of fake chat. However, we did not find any proof of this in the Terms and Conditions. But the information on the internet is crystal clear. New members receive messages, immediately after registration. These messages are sent automatically. It seems that this site uses chatbots as a replacement for fake chat operators. The goal remains the same. New members will be encouraged to purchase a premium membership.
The subscription is a trap
After registration, costs will develop for a premium membership. Users will need a paid subscription to use the site. According to reviews from former users, this subscription is a waste of time. The chances of finding real matches are zero. But users do not know about fake chat. Additionally, the subscription is a cheeky trap. This is another part of the rip-off. All offered subscriptions will renew automatically. The user must actively terminate the subscription, and on time. If this does not happen, the subscription will renew automatically.
According to the experience of former customers, the site operator makes termination difficult. Therefore, the operator makes sure that users will miss the deadline. The automatic renewal is used to scam users. The site’s operator is Online Connections Inc, which is based in Plantation, in the USA. Incidentally, we also found reviews about leaking data, and a lack of protection.
