The online dating website TenderMeetups.com claims to be the perfect place to meet thousands of people from your area, who are all seeking love and long-term relationships. Furthermore, the portal promises to provide all features and tools needed to find a matching partner in no time at all.
As always, we create a free test account and take a closer look at the site’s members’ area. Then, we carefully study the legal information and search for user experiences and reviews on the internet. Unfortunately, it quickly turns out that TenderMeetups.com is not trustworthy. Actually, it is a rip-off with a fake message scam and a subscription trap.
Fake profiles and chatbots
We may from time to time offer users the ability to "Promote My Account" through Account Settings. Activating this service will mean that we will automatically broadcast custom messages created by any user, or selected from a default list of template messages, to other users. We reserve the right to select members to use the Promote My Account service. Sending of messages through this service will be free, however, recipients who view and choose to reply to a Promote My Account message, will require to have an upgraded Paid Membership in order to reply to the sender.
TenderMeetups.com offers several different subscriptions to choose from. The inexpensive trial-membership appears to be the best offer. However, these trials are dangerous traps. Once expired, they are automatically converted to one of the costly long-term subscriptions, which will then be automatically renewed over and over again. From our experience, canceling them is not so easy. The site’s operator has got a poor reputation and is well known for subscription rip-offs.
The company behind this scam website is Porticato Media Ltd, who are based in London, England. They are responsible for numerous dating portals of this kind. Online, they regularly receive negative reviews and complaints from former customers.
