They claim that “Over 1,300,000 members are ready for a passionate meeting!” The registration is free of costs, and we saw a small preview of the members’ pool.! The registration is free of costs, and we see a small preview of the members’ pool. We scroll down a little bit and see the newest members and the latest updates on member profiles, all perfunctory, nothing outstanding here.
The website PassionDesire.com is operated by Flaming Head LTD which runs an extensive network of other dating portals. We are sure that this online portal will be a scam as well, and we start our research.
Excerpt from the Terms & Conditions (as of 30/08/2023)
I also agree to receive email newsletters, account updates, special offers and communications from computer generated virtual profiles, targeted to my interests, sent by PassionDesire.com or PDcupid.com, and agree to allow my personal data to be shared with third parties.
We may post fictitious profiles, generate or respond to communications by means of automated programs or scripts that simulate or attempt to simulate your intercommunication with another real human being (though none really exists and any dialogue is generated by programming), and we may employ or contract for the paid services of real persons who may interact with you as part of their compensated employment.
As usual, the company is using the computer-generated virtual profiles to entice the users into upgrading their memberships. Once the new members do that, they are trapped already. Besides the fact that the memberships are over-priced, they are also a subscription trap with monthly recurring costs.
We take a minute and set up our profile to find more proof that the portal is not legit at all. The registration is free and fast. We create a profile but do not upload any pictures and just sit tight for a few minutes. It is a miracle, we get plenty of emails, messages and texts with inquiries but of course, we aren’t able to read or answer any of them. We need premium membership. The same lame old trick!
The website is full of faked profiles operated by moderators who are paid by the operating company Flaming Head LTD, from Nicosia in Cyprus. The members’ pool is full of fantasy profiles, and there will be no real dates at all. It is all about earning money from naïve customers. We do some internet research and find a lot of reviews and reports from disappointed former members. They claim that there are no real women on the website, just automatically created profiles with only one goal, to lure the people into subscription traps.
