The operator Rometic BV runs different dating sites. All of them look quite similar, but they operate in different countries. This platform gave us a good first impression. For this review, we signed up to test the platform. Unfortunately, according to our experience while using the site, this platform is a fake chat scam. We received several messages soon after registering, and while our profile was still empty. That is enough for us to be sure that they were sent by fake profiles.
Registration on the platform TrulyFilipino.com is free. Apart from that, there is little that can be done without paying. New users can send some free messages on the platform. But this option is very limited. After sending a free message, the user must wait for 10 minutes to send another one. Those who really want to have a conversation, must pay for a membership. The platform offers a 7-day trial for only 2.95 USD. However, this trial subscription will renew automatically into a monthly subscription, which costs 28.95 USD.
We read both positive and negative reviews on the internet. On the positive side, some former users mention that they found dates and even a life partner here. On the other hand, we also read negative reviews by former customers. These complain about scams. In some cases, the customers mentioned that the site is a subscription rip-off. They were not aware that the trial membership will renew automatically into a monthly subscription.
This is a very common problem on many platforms. The operators do not provide clear information about the auto-renewal, or they give it in a format that is not easy to find or to read. This is not a mistake. The operators know what they are doing by providing the information this way. They expect that many customers do not read the text. Therefore, the customers will only realize the trick once they are charged for the monthly subscription. Even if they cancel later, the company has already managed to charge them for a full month. It is a cheeky rip-off.
