The online dating website LuvCougar.com advertises with a solid offer. Here, the registration is free plus the portal shows many profile pictures on the landing page. So, we could assume that the members´ pool of the platform has a lot of potential matches. Also, as we see it, there is a chance that the use of the site is free as well. We got that impression is because there is no further information about costs mentioned on the homepage. But, we did some research about the site and its operator. We found many negative reports about a scam. According to that information, this site is a subscription trap and a fake chat. Costs will occur right after the registration for a paid membership. That means the user will pay a lot of money to have a chat with a fictional person with whom a date in real-life is not possible.
High costs with an automatically renewing membership
We must point out that the operator of the online dating website does not mention a fake chat in the terms and conditions. But, on the internet, we found a lot of reports from former customers that all had the same experience. The operator of the site is well-known for a huge network of dating websites which are all a scam. The sites run Porticato Media Ltd., which is based in London, UK are a rip-off with a subscription trap. No one speaks well of this untrustworthy company. We read about how the scam works step by step. Right after the registration, operators will get in touch with a new member. With many messages they will entice the user into a chat.
Automatic subscription renewal
For that chat, a paid membership is needed which will extend automatically. Also, the operator will offer a cheap trial membership that will only run for three days. But, the deadline for termination is 72 hours. As a termination in time is not possible, the trial membership will extend automatically to a monthly paid subscription.
