The dating website CheekyFlirt.co.uk advertises with a free registration and promises to allow the users to find partners nearby quickly. The operator of the website is Lead'R Limited, which is a company based in London, UK. On the landing page there is a form to sign up, and an image of a beautiful woman in the background. Nothing else is there to show us that there are real members. But at least, we can register for free.
At the bottom of the landing page, we can find a “they’re talking about us” section which mentions famous established magazines. After our research we could not confirm those claims to be true. The dating site does not provide any way to prove that those established websites are truly talking about the service either. This may very well be a lie and therefore, the sign of a possible rip-off.
We did not find any user review for this website on the web, so we cannot confirm other users’ experience. This is often a sign of shadiness and a small user base. The users can sign up for free, but this is useless. All the other features are locked behind a paid subscription. Unless the user pays, they cannot chat with other profiles.
The website advertises with a 3-day free trial subscription, but there is a catch. While the trial is free, it is actually a part of the full price subscription. Indeed, the terms and conditions are clear on the matter. The user can only cancel the automatic renewal of the free trial within one single day after subscription. In practice, it means that the 3-day free trial is in fact a 1-day free trial. Once the trial is over, it transforms into a full paid subscription automatically. Therefore, the website can be considered misleading and untrustworthy. This can indicate a rip-off. Furthermore, any regular subscription will be automatically renewed. The renewal can only be canceled within 3 days before the end of its term. This is very cumbersome and can be considered a scam as well.
