This online dating website offers free registration in its advertising. But what it states is not completely true. Trial membership is offered as early as during registration. This kind of membership runs for one day and costs only 0.99 USD. Well, the offer certainly sounds interesting. And the low price easily makes it affordable. But logically, such a low price doesn’t sound compatible with premium membership. Moreover, it’s generally not advisable to purchase a subscription before seeing what’s actually on offer. So we skipped the payment option during our registration.
By the way, we would like to offer one important piece of general advice. Never make any purchase too hastily on the internet. It might end in a rip-off. Anyway, after skipping the payment option, we entered the members´ area. We received free basic membership. This kind of membership allows us to get to know this website. We were able to see all the profile pictures. And we could visit the profiles to read further information. By the way, this even works without verifying your account. In our experience, this is not an advantage: instead, it means deficient data protection.
Free basic membership allowed us to use the search function. Further features are not available on this website. We received a lot of attention from other members right after our registration. We received likes for our profile and messages. This is of course all fake. It’s a clear sign of a scam. No one likes a profile that does not have a profile picture or a single item of personal information uploaded to their account. The messages are part of a trick.
Free basic membership did not allow us to read the messages. Nor could we send any messages either. So to make contact with other members, costs will develop. Trial membership begins to seem more interesting again. Since we have already received messages, all we have to do is reply to arrange a date. Well, this is exactly what the cheeky trick is all about. Trial membership is a trap. It will be renewed as normal premium membership afterwards. There is no way to avoid this.
The operator also makes terminating a normal subscription difficult. We found reviews complaining about this trick on the internet. Termination requests made in time will be ignored or simply declined. In the end, the user will miss the termination deadline again and again. As a normal premium membership subscription is extended automatically too, the whole thing is a rip-off.
Besides trial membership which runs for one day and costs 0.99 USD, there are three more options. There is a subscription for one week that costs $0.56 per day. Then there is premium membership for one month, which costs 2.14 USD per day. And premium membership for three months is available, costing 0.77 USD per day. Payments can be made by credit card only. Alternative options are not available. Your credit card will be charged much more often than you actually want it to be.
The reason trial membership cannot be terminated in time is because the deadline for termination is 72 hours in advance. This is stated in the legal information. The operator makes it impossible to cancel it in time. Other termination requests will inevitably be unsuccessful too.
