At first sight, the online dating platform WildScrew.com seems to be an ideal place to meet confident women, who are searching for new experiences and exciting dating adventures. As the website provides many useful tips on dating safety, it appears to be trustworthy and legitimate. Furthermore, the registration is free and can be done quickly.
As always, we dig a little deeper and do some research. First, we carefully study the site’s terms and conditions. Then, we search the internet for user reviews, complaints, and success stories. Unfortunately, we quickly find out that WildScrew.com is a rip-off.
WildScrew.com is not free at all, only the registration is. To be able to use the chat feature, a paid membership subscription is needed. During our research, we find some interesting facts regarding these subscriptions. Apparently, they unavoidably end in a costly trap. All subscriptions renew automatically and seem to be difficult to cancel. Therefore, they can easily become a long-lasting problem and cause horrendous costs.
Shortly after the free registration, new users receive plenty of messages from alleged members. If users want to reply, they must purchase an upgraded membership subscription first. In the terms and conditions, we find out that these messages are fake. They are sent by an automated system which uses so-called “chatbots”. Their sole purpose is to lure users into becoming paying subscribers as quickly as possible. We consider this a fake message scam.
The following note is from the terms and conditions
We may from time to time offer users the ability to “Promote My Account” through Account Settings. Activation 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.
Bad experience with the operator
The operator of WildScrew.com is already known for their scams. Cyberence Kft, who are based in Csomad, Hungary, operate a whole network of online dating platforms. They all use the same tricks to rip-off their users. As a result, the internet is already filled with negative reviews about this company and their websites.
