The search engine of MatchMeet.com is praised on the front page. It seems easy to connect with other members on this dating portal. Other than that, there is barely any more information about MatchMeet.com on the front page. We decide to register ourselves to find out more. Signing up is a piece of cake and does not necessarily require an e- mail address. There is a short statement right below the registration form which is easy to miss.
Here is what it says
By proceeding I acknowledge and agree that this Site includes Online Cupids® which are fantasy profiles operated by the site for entertainment and compliance. Online Cupids® may interact with users to encourage full participation in the Site’s services, procedures, and options.
This small font already tells us that this is something that should remain a secret. These “Online Cupids” are hard to miss. We use the search function of MatchMeet.com and only find Online Cupids, but no real profiles. The fake profiles are taken over by fake chat operators.
From the terms and conditions
You understand, acknowledge, and agree that the information, text, and pictures contained in the Online Cupids® service profiles do not pertain to any actual person, but are included for entertainment and educational purposes only. Life events, experiences, interests, and geographic locations are fictitious. Nothing contained in any Online Cupids® service profile or message is intended to describe or resemble any real person - living or dead.
You do not even have to start a conversation with anyone, because the Online Cupids send seductive messages to every user. After some time, a paid membership is needed to send messages in the chat. Since not everyone finds out about the Online Cupids, many users will fall for this trick and pay for an expensive membership.
On MatchMeet.com you get to choose between a few different memberships. They all turn out to be subscriptions. It is very difficult to find out about the cancellation period. MatchMeet.com offers a trial membership that only lasts 3 days. If you do not cancel it within the 3 days, it extends and turns into a regular paid membership.
Who is responsible for this rip-off
The company behind this rip-off is called Deniro Marketing LLC. Apparently, the operator does not want to be known. The company’s name is not even mentioned in the terms and conditions. This is our first experience with this company from Stockton, in the United States. However, we have dealt with similar fake chat scams and subscription rip-offs before. MatchMeet.com does not seem to be a well-known dating portal. We can hardly find any user reviews.
