The online dating website PlayfulCuties.com advertises with a lot of active members and a great offer. It seems like the members’ pool is huge and filled with hot and open-minded users. At least, that is the impression that the landing page gives us. On the landing page we see some profile pictures of good-looking people. We could assume that those people are real and real members of the site. Plus, we read the information on the homepage that this site is the best choice to find a match here in Australia. That does sound very promising. The only thing to do is to register. The registration is for free. The process of creating a profile seems to be simple and done in a few minutes.
Not a good choice
PlayfulCuties.com might look like a great choice to find a match in Australia. It certainly is not. The online dating website is nothing but a cheeky rip-off with a fake chat. All the profiles on the landing page are a fake. The members’ pool is filled with fake profiles as well. Those fake profiles are managed by fake operators that will entice the user to a chat.
Here is where the problem lies and where the scam starts. A fake operator will not identify as a fictional person. Users gets tricked by misleading and irritating information on the landing page and later by the fake operators.
Not one real member
The fake operators entice the user to a conversation. Then, a user must pay to be able to send and to read messages. Costs will originate for a subscription for a premium-membership that will extend automatically. That is the reason why the subscription appears to be a trap and a scam. Usually, an automatic renewal of a membership does not have to be something bad. But in this case, the site and the operator are not trustworthy.
In the end, a user will pay a lot of money for a membership that will extend again and again. A user will pay all that money to have a chat with a fake profile that shows a fictional person. A date in real-life is not possible.
The fake chat is mentioned in the terms and conditions:
“In order to enhance your amusement experience, to stimulate you and others to use our Services more extensively, and to generally sprinkle some sparkle and excitement into the Services of PLAYFULCUTIES.COM, 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”
We did some research on the internet about the site and found many negative reviews. Also, the operator of the online dating website has got many negative reports as well. In general, former customers complain about the misleading information, the fake chat and the subscription scam. The operator is High Knight Limited, located in Nicosia, Cyprus.
