The online dating portal LookingForLove.mobi looks good on the first view. It seems that the site offers a great service and comes with a huge members’ pool. However, we did some research and found many negative reviews.
The operator behind the portal
First, the site is part of a huge network run by Venntro Media Group LTD. The company is based in Slough, in the UK. They manage more than 3,500 different dating sites in various categories. This here appears to be a single dating site, but there are also matchmakers, casual and fetish portals.
The problem is that if you register here, your profile will be shown on all other sites of the network as well. So, you register on a site that promises true love, but your profile will be displayed on casual dating sites. That is the leaking data protection problem of the operator. For that reason, we also read many negative reports about the operator of the online dating portal.
Excerpt from the Terms & Conditions (as of 03/12/2020)
The Site is an entertainment service.
Fake profiles in the members’ pool
Former customers claim that the network is filled with fake profiles that are managed by fake operators. Indeed, the operator mentions in the terms and conditions, that the portal is only for entertainment. This can be understood to be a description of a fake chat. We assume that fake profiles exist here on this site, but they are not operated or created by the operator. We do not have real proof that this site really is a fake chat.
Additionally, many people complain about a rip-off with a subscription trap. Indeed, the premium-membership is offered in the form of a subscription which does extend automatically. Usually, an automatic renewal does not have to be something bad. We can only point out that the operator is not trustworthy, so taking a subscription here might be a bad choice.
