Banana.me does not provide any details on its landing page. The online dating website does only show that you can register for free. Our first impression is not suitable as a dating portal with no transparency as a negative factor.
So we read the terms and conditions of the dating platform which are very extensive. The very first paragraph of the terms and conditions is about the costs on this website. So the landing page advertises with free registration, but after that, a user will need to spend money. That makes the free registration to a misleading detail as we see it.
But there is more to mention about the costs of the website. The subscription will extend automatically at the end of its term if the cancellation is not made in time. It is necessary to send an e-mail or contact the customer support of Banana.me to cancel the subscription.
It’s a trap
In the terms and conditions, it mentioned that the operator might offer a special subscription from time to time. That offer is a cheap subscription for one day that seems to be very affordable. But this one-day subscription will automatically extend to the membership for one month with high costs.
So as far as we see, this one-day subscription and maybe also other exclusive offered memberships are a trap and a rip-off. Plus we read in the terms and conditions about so-called “ice-breaker” messages. Those ice-breaker messages are automatically sent from one profile to another profile. So you could register here and will receive a lot of messages. Those messages stimulate the user to get a paid membership to stay in touch and could be part of the scam. But in the end, the messages were all automatically sent, and there does not have to be real interest. This website is operated by the Cellar Door Limited which is located in Gibraltar. As we see it, this is an uncommon location for a company that runs websites in the UK.
