SilverGranny.com is the number one free online dating platform for people who love mature women, according to the operator. The front page is full of photos of naked grannies as well as a few testimonials by satisfied users. We sign up and find out that SilverGranny.com is nothing like it appears on the front page. The numerous attractive grannies are nowhere to be found. Furthermore, the trial membership offered by the operator is part of a subscription rip-off.
After signing up with success, we find ourselves in the shop. We can pick from a bronze, silver, or gold subscription. All of them allow you to send unlimited messages. The gold subscription comes with the most benefits and lasts the longest. The cheapest option is a two-week trial membership which only costs 2 dollars.
The truth about the trial membership
Nothing seems to be wrong about the trial membership, until you look at the very bottom of the shop page. There, you find out that the trial membership will automatically be rebilled for another 14 days, but for a much higher price of around 30 dollars. There is a reason this essential fact is well-hidden. The operator does not want you to find out about the cancellation necessary to stop the automatic renewal. Scam dating platforms often use this kind of trick to send the users into a subscription trap.
Where are all the members?
Even if the membership on SilverGranny.com was cheap, it would still not make sense to upgrade your membership status for money. We use the search function but only find about 10 members. Only two of them have uploaded a profile photo. Even if you look for results in a 500-kilometer radius around a city like New York, you still do not find many more members. It is safe to say that the claims made on the front page are very misleading and far from the actual truth.
This has not been our first review for a dating platform run by Global Digital Média SA. This company from Genève in Switzerland, is known for their subscription scams.
