At first sight, DateMeUK.com looks like a good choice to find a date in the UK. But this online dating portal has a bad reputation. We found many reviews about a scam. We did some research and checked out the platform to find out more. First, costs will occur after the registration. A user will need a paid membership to read and to send messages. Also, the profiles in the members´ pool are displayed blurred. That is more than curious, because on the landing page, we see profile pictures which are not blurred.
The profiles on the landing page are for advertising. The profiles in the members´ pool are all fake, according to the reviews on the internet. Fake chat operators control the fake profiles, which show fictional people. They will send messages to a new member. They stimulate new users to purchase a paid membership. The premium-membership is quite expensive. But, with every message which reaches a user, their interest in a premium-membership increases. The premium-membership will extend automatically, which is not a bad thing, in general. Here, however, it is used to catch people in a subscription trap.
According to the reviews on the internet, the costs for the paid membership are explained in a confusing way. A price for a monthly term is shown, but it actually shows the rate for each month. In the end, the user must pay the price every month and not one time for the complete term. However, the costs will occur for a site which has the reputation of a fake chat. Plus, the operator of the portal has a terrible reputation as well. The operator of this platform is DateBlaster AG, who are based in Cham, Switzerland.
