The online dating website DatingDirect.com is one of those dating portals that look great on the first view. It is the perfect example that you should never judge a book by its cover. We checked on the internet for some reviews and reports and were surprised. Nearly all previous customer experiences were just wrong. This portal offers many good things, but it seems that this portal is nothing else than a scam.
The dating portal offers free registration, but after that, a user will need to pay for a membership. That makes this detail on the landing page very misleading. Regard to the information we found on the internet, this membership is not worth a penny. The subscription for the paid membership will extend automatically. That sounds like a typical trap to us.
We also found a few hints that DatingDirect.com is a fake chat beside the subscription trap.
On the internet are some details about fake operators and fake profiles. Those fake profiles are operated by the fake operators to entice the user to stay on the website and pay money. But regarding a fake chat, there is nothing mentioned in the terms and conditions. We can only assume that a lot of former customers had the same thoughts about a fake chat.
One thing that seems to be sure is that it is impossible to arrange a date via DatingDirect.com. We read about people that had been a member of this website for more than one year and did not found a single match for a date. Of course, this membership was costly.
The operator of DatingDirect.com is Match.com International Limited that is in London, UK. The operator is well-known on the internet, also for its most popular dating website Match.com. This website also has a bad reputation on the web about a fake chat and subscription scam.
