The landing page of DatingForDeaf.com makes a rather decent first impression. The platform is accessible in many languages, which suggests that people from various countries can sign up. In addition to that, DatingForDeaf.com claims to be the number one deaf community on the net. This seems to be more of a slogan because there is no evidence to back this claim. After doing sufficient research we do not consider DatingForDeaf.com to be a good dating portal. The reason is that this is a subscription trap.
The regular membership does not get you far
Unlike other scam portals, DatingForDeaf.com does not seem to be full of fake chat operators who entice users to use of the expensive chat function. When you want to chat with other members you still must pay for a premium membership first. The operator grants a limited number of free messages to users who confirm their mail address and upload a profile picture. It does not take long before the premium membership is required to have any kind of conversation whatsoever.
A clever rip-off
You can either become a premium member for a single month or a whole three months. This membership does not just end. It renews automatically, and repeatedly. Many users do not want to spend too much money on a portal like this one, since they are not sure what they can expect. This is where the trial membership comes into play. It costs very little money and lasts for only five days. Users often forget or overlook that this trial membership is also a subscription. You must cancel it within 5 days, otherwise the trial membership turns into a monthly subscription which costs more money.
