DiscreetDates.co.uk is a website for those looking for a sexual partner outside their current relationship. It advertises with free registration and claims to have been featured in several renowned lifestyle magazines. To write this review, we read the Terms and Conditions and create a minimalistic profile. We find the language in the legal disclaimer quite ambiguous, which is usually a red flag pointing to a scam. WILD FOX, based in Rickmansworth, United Kingdom, do not admit to creating any fake profiles. However, they warn that they cannot guarantee that all users in the member’s area are real.
After logging in, we are encouraged by the fact that we are not immediately flooded with computer-generated messages, as is often the case. The website also claims that they make every effort to ensure that all profiles are real, but they cannot promise anything. Sadly, after a few minutes, we confirm our suspicions. Messages from apparently very attractive members start coming into our empty profile’s inbox. This should not be happening, as we have not written any details or uploaded any photos.

Fake chat rip-off
It looks like there are many fake users on this platform, and no way of knowing which of them are real. If this operator is indeed doing everything to eliminate fake profiles, they are not doing a very thorough job. Instead, they are simply avoiding taking any sort of responsibility. These fake members do not correspond to any real-life people, so any money spent on the platform will not lead to any actual dates. It seems that the platform is using these steamy messages to trick you into spending your money on buying credits.
It is also disappointing that the landing page did promise free interaction and messaging with local members, as this is not the case. The platform gives you 100 credits to begin with, which are only enough for one single message. Another small detail that made our alarms ring was that we found several typos on the landing page. That does not mean anything. But in our experience, a professional website will normally take care of small issues like that, precisely to generate trust in their user base.
