Report for review

The online dating portal advertises with a free registration. More details about the site and its service are missing. Because of that, we did some research on the internet and found out that this website is a huge scam.

The operator of is Date4Friend AG, which is well-known for its huge network of dating sites. The operator runs a subscription trap on all their sites. Many former customers claim that the portal is filled with fake profiles that are managed by fake operators. Those fake operators entice the user to get a paid membership that will extend automatically, if it is not terminated in time.

Details on the review looks good on the first view. However, a good-looking landing page is not enough. On the landing page, we do not see much useful information. Only that the registration is for free and that all members are checked manually. To find out more details about the site and its operator, we did some research on the internet.

We found out that the operator of the online dating website,, is a well known company. The operator, Date4Friend AG, is based in Zug, Switzerland. This company runs a huge network with a few hundred dating sites. They all have a poor reputation. We found many negative reports from former customers about the operator. Many people claim that the company uses fake profiles that are managed by fake operators. They entice the user to spend money for the expensive membership.

A member’s pool filled with fake profiles

The operator of the online dating website does not mention fake profiles or fake operators in the terms and conditions. However, many former customers claim that they had the same experience of a moderated chat. Additionally, the operator is not trustworthy because the company is well known for its cheeky rip-offs.

The scam always follows the same steps on every site of the network. Right after the registration, a new member will get a free basic-membership, which is completely useless. It does not allow users to send or to read messages. The user’s virtual post box fills up with many messages right after the registration. Those messages seem to come from the fake profiles of the fake operators.

With those messages, they entice the user to get a paid membership. This will extend automatically if it is not cancelled in time. A trial membership will be offered that cannot be terminated in time. The trial membership is the actual trap.

The conclusion from our review

The online dating website is a cheeky scam with a subscription trap. Moreover, former customers are sure that the members’ pool is filled with fake profiles that are managed by fake operators. They entice the user to get a paid membership which will extend automatically. The trial membership can not be terminated in time and is the actual trap.

    I’m getting emails from this site threatening me with legal action for some outstanding debt. What can I do? Has any of you here actually been taken to court by these people?

  2. john 22nd August 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Scam site. I did not even register and was on it for 10 mins. I get amesdage I owe them €167.89 or something. They better fix this. SCAM RIP OFF targeting the loneliest people.

    I signed up initially but I didn’t sign up to pay but now they are demanding 2 months subscription even though I closed my account immediately. They even sent me a solicitors letter saying they have my IP.
    They are trying to blackmail me basically.
    I have told many times I cancelled my account.

  5. Stephen Prince 5th September 2021 at 9:12 pm

    been getting multipe legal letters of demand from this site, i never joined, and yet i am unable to remove any accoutn details from this site, One great big scam and will take legal action if i have to

    same happend to me ! i got tricked into it i paid a fee off 64 dollars for the month you cant delete ur card details or or your profile i sent a email to delete membership and account and havent heard anything back at all soo my best advise would be call your bank and cancell your card right away s no more money can be taken by the month

  7. Frank 15th July 2021 at 12:32 am

    I agree with all of teh above. No real profiles as far as I can tell. My first 40 contacts all turned out to be scammers looking for me to get fake ID or hook up on dubious Websites. Didn’t do either, thankfully, but did pay a membership fee. I cancelled my membership and if those idiots want to chase me in the Courts, boy oh boy will I have my fun!

  8. Peterlang20 2nd June 2021 at 3:01 pm

    This site is a big scam and if you dont continue to pay up they have lawyers that hound you and threaten court case. Dont think of even paying them a cent as they will empty your bank account and you will not see anything for it. Obviously it legal in Germany to defraud people like this site does

  9. jon 9th May 2021 at 2:48 pm

    I register on a dating site without a photo on my profile and i receive messages. That immediately tells me it is a scam. I never send messages to anyone who does not have a photo on their profile. Who in their right mind would waste their precious time doing that. Only scammers will do that. When you see a girl on the street,you check her out. Either you like the look of her or not. Same goes online. You need to see a photo of the girl to decide if you want to message her or not.

  10. Jordan 24th February 2021 at 8:23 pm

    I am in the trap it’s horrible I am being told that if I don’t pay they will take me before the courts and it’ll cost me more I have tried everything to get out please I need help desperately

  11. Daniel Simpson 10th December 2020 at 3:17 pm

    I’ve tried and tried using their prompts to delete my profile but still they send me account statements.
    I original signed up for their cheap deal about $14 to check it out also thinking it was easy to unsubscribe BOY OH BOY was I wrong, they sent me a $68 bill per month + interest threatening debt collectors
    Please if ANYONE knows how to delete account please share your information on how to.
    Such a scam, so angry at myself

  12. Blondie 3rd November 2020 at 9:27 pm

    Complete joke of a site, they lure you in with a cheap fee, but be warned this is the cost per week within the term you selected.

    I also read on the terms the right to Revocation, however this is complete garbage…. as they state as you signed up to a vip membership and a digital service you have no right to any refund even though it states this in the terms!!!!


  13. greg allder 1st October 2020 at 6:38 pm

    Complete rip off – the cheapest option is $240 australian for 3 months – must of spoken to 30 women – when using whats app NO ONE had local numbers always African or US – then there were the web cam gals, ones telling u to join another site or others wanting money. The staff are hopeless and refuse to tell you when the membership expiry date is in the hope that auto renewal will take place – i left after a month – so $240 for one wasted month

  14. Ruairi 1st October 2020 at 4:15 am

    This site is a scam certainly. I registered for basic at 7.99 but was billed €89, and it was set to renew at 3 months. Will have to cancel my card as there appears to be no way to opt out.

    Once registered, one is inundated with nubile women and encouraged to go on webcam with them via another registration and “safe site” . Refuse, and they appeal on the basis of safety…

    Do not use this site…the girls say they are from Ranelagh, but in fact they are a continent away….look for the time of sent emails…may be in different time zone
