When first arriving at the iWantUCougar.com homepage, visitors are greeted by an image of an attractive woman and encouraged to register for free. The website promises the best cougar dating experience. Once you are logged in, users will be met with an endless number of attractive profiles. Though this all seems great, the reality of this website is that it is a subscription trap.
Automatically renewing subscription
Though it may be free to sign up on this site, once you try to send a message, it becomes clear that additional payments are required. If users wish to use the chatting feature, they will first be required to purchase a premium membership subscription.
For users who are unsure if they want to make a long-term commitment to this site, there is a cheap 1-day trial available. However, the Terms and Conditions state that users must submit a request to cancel their subscription at least 72 hours before the renewal date. If you purchase the 1-day subscription, this is impossible, and you will be charged, no matter what.
From the Terms and Conditions
You may cancel the auto-renew feature to avoid recurring charges, but you must act at least 3 days (that is, 72 hours) prior to the renewal date.
Suspicious messages and profiles
A key indicator that iWantUCougar.com is a fake chat scam, occurred when our test account immediately received messages. Upon registering, our inbox was full of enticing messages from attractive profiles. This is quite suspicious since our profile was incomplete and blank. In the past, we found that the operating company behind this site, employs fake chat operators. Fake chat operators pretend to be real people. They send flirtatious messages, to lure users into the subscription trap.
The operator of iWantUCougar.com, InfraWeb Solution Ltd is a Hong Kong-based company, who we are quite familiar with. We have written multiple negative reviews about their rip-off websites in the past. Also, there are many user reviews, which accuse the company of being a scam operator. Users have complained that the company makes cancelling subscriptions extremely difficult, and they will ignore requests to unsubscribe. Many past customers have also suspected the use of false profiles and fake messages.
