At first sight, the online dating website Swurve.com looks trustworthy and legit. The site offers free registration and advertises with a big member’s pool. Furthermore, it is promised that all members on the site are real.
Fake Profiles in the chat
We do some research on the internet, and we do not believe that Swurve.com is a trustworthy website. According to many negative reports by former customers, the site is packed with fake profiles. Directly after the free registration, users receive plenty of enticing messages from alleged members. This is a clear warning sign for a fake chat, as it is highly unlikely that real people contact users so shortly after the registration. From our experience, these messages are sent by fake operators, and are purely designed to lure new users into signing up for a paid membership. The chat feature on Swurve.com is not free. Users must become premium-members to be able to reply to these messages.
In the terms and conditions of the site, the operator does not mention anything about a moderated chat. But due to all the reports on the internet and our own experience, we believe that most members in the chat are not real.
Subscription traps behind the paid memberships
We also find some reports regarding the paid subscriptions. According to former customers, it is almost impossible to cancel a subscription. Even when cancelled, the monthly subscription fees are still being deducted from the users’ bank accounts. There are also many reports claiming that the customer service of Swurve.com is extremely poor. All messages concerning cancellations are generally being ignored by the operator.
Therefore, the operator, Swurve Media Corp., which is based in Florida, USA, cannot be trusted. Swurve.com is a rip-off with fake chat and a subscription trap. The chances of losing a lot of money for pointless chats are extremely high, while the chances of finding real people for a date are extremely low. Thus, Swurve.com cannot be recommended.
