The online dating portal MilfCheck.com advertises with a solid offer. This portal seems to have a lot of members in the US. At least we see a lot of profile pictures on the landing page. That gives us the impression that this portal has many active users. Also, the registration is free. In a nutshell, the first impression is great. But, our second impression is not that good. On the bottom of the landing page, we read about fictional profiles. So, the profiles on the landing page are fake. That is very disappointing of course.
We did some extra research to find out more. We found a lot of negative reviews by former users. They point out that this website is a cheeky rip-off with a fake chat. So, fake profiles are not just used for advertising, but also for moderation. We must point out that it is fair of the operator to note the use of fictional profiles on the landing page. However, that short statement does not explain all a user needs to know. Additionally, the statement is deliberately quite hidden on the page. Therefore, it is still a scam.
We found the following note in the terms and conditions
This Website or Service is for adult entertainment purposes; it is not our aim to bring physical appointments/contact between members. User is aware and agrees that we may use moderated and fictive profiles for online adult entertainment purposes.
The bad reputation of the operator
The profiles are fake and controlled by fake chat operators. They will stimulate new users into a chat for which costs will occur. A fake chat operator will not identify as a fictional person and a fake profile is not marked as such. The fake chat operators try to generate as many messages from the users as possible, so the income of the operator increases. The operator of the site is Festivus Media BV who are based in ’s-Gravenhage, in the Netherlands. This company has a terrible reputation on the web.
