The landing page of Rooting.online does not provide a lot of information. That is our first criticism about this site because a trustworthy dating portal offers various information about costs and service. But not this rip-off portal.
We only know that the registration is for free. That is not even an incorrect detail, but it is misleading and part of the scam. After the registration is done, a new member will receive a free basic-membership. This sounds great but it is not, as the basic-membership is useless. It is not possible to read or write messages.
Right after the registration a new user will receive many messages from other members. That entices the new member more and more to get a paid membership. A paid membership is quite expensive and seems not worth all the money. But the operator, the Paidwings AG, located in Cham, Switzerland, has got another cheeky trick.
Cheeky rip-off with a subscription trap
A new member will receive the special offer for a trial premium-membership. That offer is for two weeks of premium-membership with a very cheap price. But the term to cancel the membership is 14 days as well. So, it is not possible to cancel the membership in time. As it is written in the terms and conditions, a paid membership will extend automatically, if it is not cancelled in time. This portal is a cheeky rip-off with a subscription trap.
But there is more; on the landing page are some profile pictures that appear to be a fake plus the chatroom appears to be moderated. In the terms and conditions, a fake chat is not mentioned. But we did some research and found many negative reviews about the operator which point out a fake chat.
