The online dating website DatingPantyhose.com looks like a good opportunity to chat with other members around the world. The homepage is simple. It shows a woman dressed in lingerie in the background. We can also see many members. There are 23, 898 registered users online. At first sight, we think that this is a trustworthy dating website with a lot of active members. But after some search, and reading some bad reviews from members, we start to have some doubts.
Tyche Technologies AG is the operator of this dating website. This company is based in Zug, Switzerland, and it belongs to a huge network run by Dating Factory. Both the website and the operator have a very bad reputation.
Use of fake profiles
We had a look at the terms and conditions, and we find out that the website admits to using fake profiles. The online dating site DatingPantyhose.com is a scam by using a fake chat. It means that fake profiles are operated by fake chat moderators in the members’ space.
See below an excerpt from the terms and conditions
3.2 Computer Generated Virtual hottie Profiles (marked with the virtual hottie tag on the Website) are created automatically for marketing, the improvement of the Service, and in order for our members opting for the free Service, to experience the type of communications that they can expect as paying members.
To test the website, we registered ourselves as a new member. Immediately after our registration, we received messages from female members. But to see the messages, we must subscribe to the Gold or VIP Membership. The subscription is divided into three packages. A 1-month subscription for $24.95, a 3 months subscription for $16.95 per month, and a 6 months subscription for $13.95 per month. If you want to subscribe to the VIP package, which allows you a guaranteed lay, you must add $8.95 per month. We do not see more information regarding this guarantee.
In brief, registration is free, but afterwards, to use the chat, a paid membership subscription is needed. According to a lot of negative comments by former users, this paid membership subscription renews automatically and converts to a long and expensive subscription trap. Also, these subscriptions are extremely difficult to cancel.
