The design of the landing page of the online dating platform MyBestHookup.com, is identical to every other website from the same company. Only the background photo is different. On the landing page, they describe extensively the advantages of subscribing to this website. Long texts describe how easy it is to find a date here. All this, with the mere intention of distracting the attention from the important missing information. We cannot find a hint about the hidden costs that customers must pay to use any of the page’s features.
The subscription rip-off
The use of this site is far from being free. Any action will cost money. This includes the basic features like chatting with other members. In short, without paying, there is nothing to do on this website. But the company is kind enough to offer a very cheap 3-day trial membership. Unfortunately, this trial membership is a scam and a real trap. But escaping from this trap is just impossible.
From the terms and conditions
You can purchase all of these premium services when you register or after you register and you may subscribe to the premium services for various lengths of time (e.g., 3 day or 1 week trials, and 1, 3 or 6 month subscriptions). So far everything seems to be fair. But it is certainly not as good as it seems.
Excerpt from the terms and conditions
All paid subscriptions automatically renew for the period and price that you signed up to. You may cancel the auto-renew feature to avoid recurring charges, but you must act at least 3 days (that is, 72 hours) prior to the renewal date if you subscribed via desktop application.
Here is when the subscription rip-off takes place. It is impossible to cancel a 3-day trial at least 3 days in advance. Furthermore, as the renewal of any subscription is automatic, the customer will end up paying for at least a full month at a regular price.
Moreover, we read several reviews of former users about different platforms from Norfex Holdings Ltd. They complain about the same kind of scams and the subscription rip-off. Therefore, we cannot recommend this website to anyone who values their money.
