The online dating platform AdultDateLink.com advertises with a solid offer. On the landing page we read some promising details about the site. For example, the operator claims that it is possible to find a date on the same day as the registration. That sounds more than good. Moreover, the online dating portal shows a selection of profiles on the homepage. That gives us the impression that the site has got real members and many of them. The registration is free for all. Women and men are free to join the site. Plus, we read that it is 100% free of charge. So, we understand that this site is generally free and does not charge any money.
Costs will occur
The online dating portal AdultDateLink.com advertises with a great offer. However, it seems that the advertisement on the landing page is not completely true. We read about free registration and that this portal is completely for free. We read some reviews by former customers. Their experiences vary a lot compared to that of what the operator advertises. Costs will occur after the registration. That is also mentioned in the terms and conditions. So, the operator advertises with misleading information regarding the fees. That is the very same thing with the profiles on the landing page. Those profiles show no real people but only fictional persons. In the terms and conditions, we found a note about entertainment. According to this notification, the online dating platform is for entertainment only. Now, in our experiences, entertainment usually means fake chat. Therefore, we assume that this site is a cheeky rip-off.
Fake profiles in the members´ pool
Our impression of the site is quite similar to the reviews on the internet from former customers. They speak about a cheeky fake chat. It starts right after the registration. At this point, a new member will receive many messages which stimulate them into a conversation. Of course, the user does not know about the fake chat. According to the information on the internet, the fake profiles are not marked as such. Plus, an operator will not identify as such. The fake profiles are controlled by employed operators who will entertain the user. The operator of the site calls it entertainment. We call it rip-off.
We did some research on the internet. There we find some reports by former customers. They claim that to reply to all the messages from the operators, costs will occur. The user will have to purchase a premium-membership which is offered as a subscription. That subscription will also renew automatically. However, that payment might end up in an expensive trap as well. Some former customers felt trapped in a subscription scam.
