The landing page of SingleMums.dating is quite simple. However, it lacks sufficient information concerning the use of the platform. After a while, a pop-up window appears which informs us about the benefits of signing up. One of the major benefits is that users can send messages for free. This is not completely wrong, but it is also not the whole truth. While you can send messages to others for free, you need a paid membership to read the messages sent to you.
The basic membership does not get you far
The locked chat function is not the only thing that makes using the platform pointless for a non-paying member. Also, all the profile photos and parts of the other member profiles are blurred. This means that it is not impossible to chat with others for free. You also need a paid membership to figure out who you are really talking to. Even paying members do not get to find out who they are really dealing with. The reason for this is the moderation of the dating platform. This means that the other profiles are fake chat operators.
This platform is a so-called fake chat scam
There is no evidence for the use of moderated fake profiles in the terms and conditions. However, several users report that the operator of this dating platform is untrustworthy. After you sign up, it does not take long before you receive messages from other members. This will even happen if you have not uploaded a profile photo or any basic profile information. Since you have messages but cannot read them, the VIP membership necessary to unlock the chat becomes more interesting.
How the operator deals with cancellations
The VIP membership is a subscription which comes with a notification period of 14 days. If you do not cancel your membership in time, it renews automatically. The operator tries to hide this fact. Perhaps users are supposed to miss it and pay more.
SingleMums.dating is operated by date4friend AG. Customers of the company from Zug in Switzerland, also complain that the operator often ignores cancellations. This makes this a dangerous subscription rip-off. We have published reviews in the past about our experience with scam dating sites from this Swiss company.
