The photo of a gorgeous mature woman on the front page makes clear it what OldCoolDates.com is all about. The site advertises with interesting singles over 60. On the bottom of the page, we also find the company responsible for this dating site. Timespace Services Ltd, operates several dating sites. All of them look and work about the same. The operator is based in Valletta, the capital city of Malta. The Mediterranean Island, which is known to be a tax haven, is the base for several notorious scam dating companies.
The operator makes it look like OldCoolDates.com is the perfect place to flirt with interesting members. Flirting on here is so expensive that you just cannot consider it to be fun. You cannot chat until you turn your free membership into a paid one. The high prices for most paid memberships make the cheap trial membership more interesting.
The trial membership is a trap
The trial membership only lasts 3 days and costs less than 5 dollars. The cheap price makes this the most attractive option. This trial membership is really a subscription. It renews automatically if you do not cancel it within these 3 days. Instead of renewing for another 3 days, the trial membership directly turns into an extremely expensive membership that costs more than 90 USD per month. This fact is well-hidden, which is why OldCoolDates.com is a dangerous subscription rip-off.
Our other concern is the use of moderated fake profiles. The operator creates fake profiles. They send generated messages to initiate a flirt with the users. This way the premium membership becomes more appealing. The fake profiles also might be taken over by fake chat operators who can manage to keep conversations running. In any case, this is a fake chat scam.
