Based on their landing page, ClubOfDesire.com seems to be the ideal dating portal for finding everything from flirty chats to a soulmate. However, we delved deeper into the terms of service and tried out the website for ourselves. In our experience, it turns out that this site is likely to be a rip-off. Users are not likely to find dates here.
The members’ page of ClubOfDesire.com contains many beautiful and attractive profiles. We found it suspicious, that numerous accounts seem to belong to models. Additionally, we received multiple suggestive messages immediately after signing in. Our profile was completely blank, and without a profile picture. So, it was strange that so many attractive people would be messaging us right off the bat. For this reason, we suspect that this website uses fake profiles to scam users into a subscription trap.
Though it is not explicitly stated in the terms and conditions of this website, this operator has admitted to creating fictional profiles on their other platforms, in the past. The operating company of this website is A&G Universal Network, who are based in Iasi, in Romania. We found that this operator has filled the membership pool with fake accounts. Furthermore, they probably used fake chat operators in the past. So, from our experience, it is likely that this website operates this type of rip-off as well.
Possible subscription trap
In addition to the multitude of suspicious accounts and messages on this website, our review found there to be a possible subscription rip-off. The landing page states that registration is free. But users will find that they must make an additional purchase of a premium subscription, to unlock the chatting feature. We do not recommend signing up for these subscriptions, as we discovered that they automatically renew.
Users must submit a request to cancel them. Therefore, it is up to the operator to manually process the request and stop the automatic payments. As this is a suspicious company, there is a high risk of being stuck in an expensive subscription trap. In addition to the possibility of fake chat operators, this could be a costly scam.
