Dating.Telegraph.co.uk aims for an older target group. The first appearance of this online dating portal is not too bad. The offer sounds solid. But this site has a bad reputation on the internet. We found many reviews about a subscription rip-off and a fake chat. We cannot prove a fake chat scam because the operator of this site does not mention fake chat operators or fictional profiles in the legal information. But many former users mention it. So, it might be the case that moderated fake profiles are used here. There is even more.
Costs will occur for a premium-membership right after the registration. A paid membership is needed, if you want to read or send messages. But this membership is a trap as it will extend automatically if it is not terminated in time. We found some reports about the operator deliberately making the cancellation difficult. That means, you will miss the deadline for termination. Telegraph Media Group Ltd is the operator of this site. This name is mentioned on the landing page. But this operator is only a part of a huge network run by another company.
You will lose control of your data
Dating Lab Ltd are based in Jersey, in the Channel Islands. We found many reviews about a scam and the lack of data protection. If you register here, your profile will be shown on all sites of the network. Plus, the operator reserves the right to collect and share your data. However, they do not sell this to third parties, which is a good thing. But the operator does share it with partners. Since you do not know which company is a partner of the operator, you will lose control over your personal information.
