The online dating website LocalsDates.com advertises with a free registration. On the landing page we do not find any more information about the portal, its service or costs. So, we did some research on the internet and found many reviews by former customers. In total the information we found was negative and it mentions that this site is a scam.
According to the information on the internet this site is a rip-off with a subscription trap. The registration is for free but not the use of it. We also read about a fake chat which entices the user to get a paid subscription. But, the operator does not mention fake profiles or fake operators in the terms and conditions. So, evidence is missing for the fake chat.
As far as we know, the user will receive many messages from other members right after the registration. But it is not possible to read those messages or to answer any other users. To get started a paid membership is needed. The messages that fill up the virtual post box in a short time entice the user to get a paid membership even more, although it is quite expensive.
Membership always extend automatically
But the operator has got one more trick for those who may not pay for a normal subscription. A new member will get the special offer for a trial premium-membership that runs for three days. But the deadline for cancelation is 72 hours, which cannot be done. As it is mentioned in the terms and conditions, a paid membership will always extend automatically, if it is not cancelled in time.
This site is operated by Porticato Media Ltd., which is well-known on the internet for its rip-off dating portals. The company is located in London, England.
