The online dating website WhatsRoot.com is operated by Paidwings AG, located in Cham, Switzerland, and has many negative reviews on the net. This company is well-known on the internet and has got a terrible reputation. Many hundreds of dating portals belong to the network of this operator, which lures its members into a subscription trap.
The tricks are always the same. First of all, the operator advertises with a free registration and some profile pictures on the landing page. Later, it turns out that costs will appear for a subscription, plus it seems like the profile pictures are all a fake. After the registration, a new member will receive a free membership, which is useless. With a basic-membership, it is not possible to read or write messages, plus all profile pictures in the members’ pool will be displayed blurred.
Former users speak of a fake chat
To get started and start a conversation, a paid premium-membership is needed, which is quite expensive. But the operator has got a few more tricks for that also. Right after the registration, the virtual post box starts to fill up with messages very quickly. Those messages seem to come from fake operators and their fake profiles. We can only assume that because many former users speak of a fake chat, but the operator does not mention a moderated chat in the terms and conditions.
However, the operator does mention that a subscription will extend automatically if it is not cancelled in time. A normal membership costs a lot of money, but a cheap trial membership is offered. The offer sounds great, but it is the actual trap. It is not possible to cancel the trial membership in time, so it will extend automatically to a monthly paid premium-membership with high costs.
