The online dating website GetMatures.com advertises with free registration. On the landing page, we read some general information about the site. But, as the homepage does not show a lot of useful content, we did some research on the internet. First, we also opened the terms and conditions to find the name of the operator.
This site is operated by Norfex Holdings Ltd. This company is in Tortola, the British Virgin Islands. We must point out that we already know this operator. We know about their huge network of scams. This operator runs many other dating portals that all work in the same way. It all starts with the offer of free registration, which is more of an irritating trick rather than real information. After the registration, costs will occur for an expensive premium-membership which will extend automatically.
The bad reputation of the operator
Usually, an automatic renewal of a paid membership is nothing bad. But in this case, it is used to trap users in an expensive membership. Also, we found many reviews about a fake chat scam. The reputation of the company gives us the impression that fake profiles are used here. But proof for moderation or the use of fictional profiles is missing. The operator does not mention anything in the terms and conditions.
But, former customers had the following experience. After the registration, a new member will receive many messages. Those messages cannot be read. To read or send messages, a premium-membership is needed. Then, the offer of a trial membership is available. The trial membership will run for three days. But, the deadline for termination is 72 hours. So, the trial membership is the actual rip off. Then, the user pays for a long-term subscription for a site that seems to be filled with fictional profiles.
