At first sight, 121Cosplay.com seems to be the ideal online dating platform for cosplay enthusiasts who are looking for new dating experiences. The site claims to offer a safe and secure online environment. They also promise to make finding like-minded singles a walk in the park.
We search for user reviews online and study the terms and conditions carefully. We also create a free account and have a close look at the members’ area and the site’s features. Unfortunately, 121Cosplay.com turns out to be a rip-off.
Subscription trap and fake profiles
Creating a profile is free, quick, and easy. But there is not much one can do as a free basic member. To get full access to the photo and video galleries and to use the chat, a paid membership subscription is needed. There are several subscription packages to choose from. But none of them can be recommended. They all extend automatically and can easily end in a subscription trap. The operating company is not trustworthy. It is simply too risky to give it a try.
In fact, chatting here is a waste of time anyway. The members’ area is packed with fake profiles, which are created by employed fake chat operators. Consequently, it is impossible to find a real cosplay-single for a real-life date here.
The following excerpt is from the terms and conditions
From time to time, the Company employees (or employees of its parent or affiliated companies) may create test dating profiles for the purpose of checking and testing the functionality of our Website and Service to improve the quality and user experience for its Users.
Fake message scam
Allegedly, the so-called “test dating profiles” are only used to check the site’s functionality and to improve the user experience. But in fact, they are used to send fake messages to new users. They lure them into quickly signing up for a paid subscription.
The site is operated by Augustine Ltd, from the Isle of Man. We have already tested and reviewed some other dating portals run by this company. Each of them turned out to be a rip-off as well.
