At first sight, the portal SecretFlirtHub.com seems to be a reliable choice, because of the many positive claims that it makes on its homepage. Also, they state that registration is free. Furthermore, they have verified profiles, and their membership pool is continuously growing. Although this all seems great, the reality of this website is not what they claim. It is unlikely that you will meet anyone here.
Overpriced, auto-renewing subscriptions
To use the website for its intended purpose, users must unlock the chatting feature, by purchasing a premium membership subscription. In the terms and conditions, SecretFlirtHub.com states that subscriptions will automatically renew, if not cancelled within 3 days of a user’s renewal date. This is a key indicator of a subscription rip-off scam because the rules regarding cancellation are vague and confusing.
Also, the operator of this website, Intermax Group AG, has a reputation for refusing cancellation requests, without reason. This company is based in Shindellegi, in Switzerland. They have received many negative online reviews from us, and previous users, who have experienced their scams firsthand.
False profiles and chat
After creating our test account, messages from attractive seeming profiles came streaming into our inbox. This seemed strange, since we had only just created our account, and it did not have a profile picture.
Hidden in the terms of SecretFlirtHub.com, is a statement which reveals that the operating company creates fake profiles. They most likely use these to conduct fake chat scams. They state that these profiles are used for ‘research’ purposes. Also, they divulge that they are viewable by the public. Therefore, the dating pool that members view on this website, is probably full of fake profiles. In addition, this means that it is highly likely that this website uses fake chat operators to manage these profiles.
From the Terms and Conditions
We reserve the right to create accounts for quality control and administrative purposes. Such accounts may be publicly viewable.
Our findings are supported by many user experiences and reviews. They describe the difficulty of cancelling their subscriptions, and their encounters with suspicious, likely fake, profiles. This operator is widely recognized for operating these schemes.
