The website Cougars.fm looks good on the first impression. But the more time we spend on the portal, the some suspicious we became. The profile pictures look like a fake to us. On the landing page we see the offer of a free registration but no information about costs after that. We checked the terms and conditions and read about costs. So we know the offer of free registration with the slogan “100% free subscription” on the homepage is very misleading. It seems like the start of a rip off to us.
More, the terms and conditions are not able to copy, and it is not possible to use the search function of the internet browser. The only thing that is possible to do with the terms and conditions is to print them. As we see it, the operator tries to hide something. If the terms and conditions and other legal information on a dating portal are not available to use via a simple search function, then it is a hint that something is not right.Before we read the terms and conditions by ourselves, we did some research on the internet.
The online dating website and its operator are not very well-known on the web. It is quite strange as it advertises with a colossal member’s pool and seems like a popular dating platform. That is one more than that makes Cougars.fm is very non-reputable. More and more, we assume that this website advertises with only wrong information and is a rip-off.
A lot of irritating details about the website and its operator
In the terms and conditions, we read about the free offer and the subscription. After the registration, a user can send eight messages, and later a premium-membership will be needed. That has different terms. One is a trial membership with three days for only two Pounds. But the deadline to terminate that membership is three days as well. As it is in the terms and conditions, membership will continue until the termination is cancelled on time. So, the trial membership is a trap and Cougars.fm is a cheeky scam.
The website is operated by the Salamandra Web S.L. In the terms and conditions, it does not mention where this company is. This information is also missing on its homepage. In the terms and conditions, we read that this website applies to French law. While some more research we learned that the company is in Barcelona in Spain. In a nutshell, the operator and the site appear very untrustworthy.
