The landing page of YarFinder.com seems a bit outdated. It looks like this platform has been designed years ago, and has never been updated since. The absence of erotic pictures, suggests that this website is more suited for those who are looking for long-term relationships, rather than casual sexual experiences. We searched the internet for reviews and testimonials, to find out what former users think about it. Surprisingly, we could not find many. YarFinder.com is definitely not as popular as they claim it is.
The few reviews we could find were rather negative. Former members complain about technical issues, few members and that it is not worth the money. Which brings us to the important fact. YarFinder.com advertises free registration. This might lead many people to think that using the service does not cost anything. Unfortunately, this is not true. Basic registration only allows users to create a profile, and browse the member’s area. To unlock the additional features, including the ability to send and receive messages, you must purchase a premium membership.
This is what we read in the Terms and Conditions
All the paid subscriptions are on autopay and recurring payments until the subscription is stopped. Canceling your subscription is your own responsibility. YarFinder will NOT issue a refund for the subscriptions that haven’t been canceled on your end and the payment has already gone through. If you subscribed with credit cards you should contact your own bank to stop the recurring billing. If you subscribed using PayPal, you should simply log into your PayPal account, go to your subscriptions and cancel it PRIOR to your recurring billing date.
A recurring subscription is not always a scam. It may also be used for the convenience of the users. However, the operator needs to make sure that users are fully aware of the rebilling cycle. In the case of YarFinder.com, the only information a user can find is hidden in the terms and conditions, which are only shown while registering. If users do not read through them carefully, they will not be aware of the automatic renewal. Nowhere in the payment section can we find any information, which may lead users to believe they are signing up for a one-time-payment.
Once the initial period is completed, the chosen payment method will be charged again for the same amount. While we do not have any proof to say that this is an intentional rip-off, we need to criticize the lack of transparency here. Moreover, there does not seem to be a direct way on the website to cancel the subscription. Members are asked to cancel the recurring subscription with their chosen payment operator or bank of their credit card. In our experience, this is an unusual way to go for a dating website. It seems neither trustworthy nor professional to us.
Automatically renewing subscriptions
The operating company is stated as WorldsPassion, with a location in Los Angeles, California. They seem to operate at least one other dating platform following the same layout. While we cannot call their services a scam, we still advise our readers to be careful with their offers, especially the paid subscription. In any case, members must be aware of the recurring billing and the fact that cancelling it may not be too easy.
