The landing page of HornyAsia.com looks good. We read that registration is free and we read some general information about the site and its offers. This information was not very informative if you want to know all the details about the site. So, we did some research on the internet and read the terms and conditions.
We started our research with the operator of the online dating site. The name Bulova Invest Limited is shown on the very button of the portal. We wanted to copy and paste the name into a search engine but it turns out it was not possible to do this. That might to others be a normal thing, but for us it is the first hint that the operator is trying to hide something.
The location of the operator is in Tortola, British Virgin Islands. This location speaks towards an untrustworthy operation. Plus, this operator runs a few more dating websites that have been spotted as a scam already.
This is just the beginning of a bad first impression of the operator. We continued with our search for more information about the dating portal and its offer. On the internet, we read some reviews of former customers about a rip-off using a subscription trap.
We checked the terms and conditions for more information regarding this and we found something. The operator offers a subscription for a membership that ends up extending automatically. That alone is not a scam yet. Continuing on, the operator will offer a trial membership that runs three days, but the deadline to cancel it is three days as well. So, a user can not make the cancellation in time. Then the subscription extends to a monthly paid membership automatically.
