The front page of ErotiLink.com shows us an impressive number. According to the operator, almost 300,000 users have registered this week alone. Most male users should also be delighted to see that there are more female than male users. We sign up to find out why so many people chose this site. Later, we are informed that male users unlike female users, must pay for a premium membership, if they want to chat. Most of the female member profiles are created by the operator. They use the chat for free and manage to make the male users pay.
The operator is trying to fool you
We try to find a statement concerning the usage of fake profiles in the terms and conditions, but we fail to do so. From experience we know that this does not mean a thing. Everything seems to indicate that this site is full of moderated fake profiles. We create an empty profile and receive messages from attractive female members, which is more than suspicious. There is a reason ErotiLink.com is a moderated dating service. The operator wants us to upgrade our membership for money, which is the only way to chat.
A clever way to get your money
The site’s shop opens as soon as we click on a message in our mailbox. Apparently, we cannot even read our messages with our basic membership. The operator offers a short trial for users who hesitate to pay a lot of money for a regular paid membership. The trial membership lasts 3 days and costs one dollar. In the fine print we are informed that this membership does not only just expire, but transforms into an expensive membership.
The only way to avoid this is to submit a cancellation within the three days. There is a reason why this information is hidden at the bottom of the shop’s page. The users are not supposed to find out. This dating site is a subscription rip-off operated by Global Digital Média SA. The company is situated in Genève, Switzerland. They are responsible for a big network of scam sites.
