The online dating platform MilfNear.me advertises with free registration. They promise countless possibilities to find a no strings attached date with a mom. But after doing some research, we were not too surprised when our test profile soon started receiving plenty of undeserved attention.
This is a clear indicator of the presence of a fake chat. When we read the Terms and Conditions, this is confirmed once again. The company creates these “Staff Profiles”, supposedly to ensure that the services are delivered appropriately, and for research purposes. However, the goal of MilfNear.me is purely entertainment, as admitted by the creators Blue Mouse Ltd, based on the Isle of Man.
The business model here is a recurring subscription. The problem is, this operator is well-known for managing a network of scams and subscription rip-offs. A number of users have written reviews online, sharing their negative experiences with this enterprise. The VIP membership is automatically renewed if not canceled on time. Given the company’s track record, we would stay away from this platform, since there is a good chance that recurring payment will become a nightmare.
Very often, these subscription rip-offs have renewal policies that make it extremely difficult to cancel. Even though this is not necessarily the case, we would certainly avoid joining in. Either way, the platform is a scam, because whatever money you invest, this can never lead to a date in real life. Whoever decides to join, has been cruelly misled by the appearance of the website, which can never deliver on its promise. Physical meetings are simply impossible.
The following excerpt is taken from the Terms and Conditions
We do not guarantee that all the profiles found in Search will belong to our users, as we reserve the right to create profiles which are maintained and managed by our employees (“Staff Profiles”). The purpose of these Staff Profiles is to ensure that our Services are operating properly by allowing us to test the Services, features and functionalities, and to research our Products and Services.
Why would anyone bother trying the paid subscription? The reason is simple, the basic membership advertised on the landing page is useless. You cannot read or write any messages unless you decide to upgrade to a paid subscription. It is understandable that someone with no experience in this space would get excited by all the unexpected attention from these alluring fake chat operators. This is how people end up giving the VIP membership a shot. If one has already invested a considerable amount of time crafting an exciting profile, one may easily believe this interest is real.
