Despite never having encountered this operator previously, we still found the design of the landing page of Dating-Guru.net quite suspicious. The reason is that it looks very similar to numerous others we have already seen. The only difference is the background picture that shows a different girl each time. The location of the company also raises concerns. Limassol is infamous for being a major hotspot for unreliable operators. VIP MEDIA Ltd is probably just a new addition to a long list of companies it would be best not to trust.
Dating-Guru.net promises its service is designed to guarantee a user's anonymity. Moreover, it promises a support team available 24/7 to provide members with the best possible experience. Those not too familiar with online dating would find these words quite reassuring and could form a mistaken impression to the effect that it is an honest platform. Unfortunately, this is not the case.
No physical encounters
The only purpose of a dating website like Dating-Guru.net is to give subscribers the chance to arrange meetings in real life. Without this possibility, the platform is a scam. And this is exactly what happens on this portal. In the Terms and Conditions, we read that the members’ area of Dating-Guru.net contains fictitious profiles entitled to communicate freely with users. But these specious accounts are not identified separately in the system.
A member is tricked into thinking he is talking to a genuine person interested in a physical date. But this is not possible since on the other side of the screen is a fake chat operator just acting a part.
The following note is from the Terms and Conditions
Members understand, acknowledge, and agree that some of the user profiles posted on this Site may be fictitious.
A waste of money
To reply to messages from these fake profiles, a user has to purchase credits. This is a virtual currency used on this and many other questionable dating websites. Credits can be purchased in bundles of different sizes. At first, they look very cheap because one credit costs just a few cents. But the catch is that you need a lot of them to send a message, which will end up costing more than £1.5.
