PassionMature.com advertises with a big members’ pool and a free registration. We read some information on the landing page which is mostly general details about online dating but not about the site. It turns out that after the registration costs will originate for a membership.
That makes the advertised free registration into an irritating piece information. Furthermore, this membership is offered in the form of a subscription which might end up in a trap. A subscription will extend automatically if it is not cancelled in time.
The question arises, why take out a subscription for this site? We found the answer in the many negative reviews on the internet. Former customers tell of a cheeky fake chat. According to the information, a new member will receive many messages right after the registration. But also, right after the registration, a new user has a basic-membership which does not allow them to read or write messages.
Rip-off with a subscription trap
So, to answer the many messages or to simply read them, a payment must be made. The more messages which arrive in the virtual post box, the more interesting a premium-membership becomes. A subscription for a normal premium-membership is quite expensive but the operator offers a cheap trial membership as well. This trial premium-membership will run for 3 days but the deadline for termination is 72 hours. That means it is not possible to cancel the trial membership in time, which makes this site a rip-off with a subscription trap.
The operator of the site is Bulova Invest Limited, which does not mention a fake chat in the terms and conditions but only the automated renewal of the membership. This company is located in Tortola, the British Virgin Islands which is a common spot for operators of scam dating portals.
