The dating portal KinkyDates.online welcomes us with a landing page presenting an attractive woman wearing a leather mask and lingerie. Pretty much what you could expect from a website labelling itself as “kinky”. Other than that, not much is explained on the landing page. In fact, the user must create an account first, before discovering any information regarding any kind of pricing. The terms and conditions do not specify anything regarding the actual costs of a subscription.
The website is operated by Qualidates AG. It is a company based in Turmstrasse, Switzerland. The operator is also managing other dating websites and their trustworthiness is questionable.
This website is a subscription scam
Creating a profile on this website is free but useless. The profile pictures and description of other members will be hidden without a paid membership. Furthermore, you cannot read received messages unless you buy one of the website’s subscription plans. This is often an indication of a subscription rip-off. After thoroughly reading the terms and conditions, we learn that it is extremely cumbersome to opt-out and cancel any ongoing subscription.
Indeed, once the user buys a subscription, the only way to cancel it is to send a fax to the operator within the last 14 days of the current subscription plan. Otherwise, the subscription will be indefinitely automatically renewed.
We did not find any proof of the website using employed operators. However, after creating a profile even with no picture or description, we soon received a few messages from women nearby which is often a hint about fake profiles. As well, we did not find any reviews online for KinkyDates.online as the website seems to be quite new. Therefore, we cannot verify other users’ experience. This can be a red flag as it indicates an extremely low user base. As a result, we suspect this website is a rip-off.
