The sign up is for free and done fast. Just let them know your preferences, age, location, provide your mail address and create a password, and you are ready to start. Seconds later, we are redirected to the main members’ area.
We are greeted by a clean and modern interface with useful functions like filters and searches to make it even easier to find our perfect match near our location. The member can edit his profile and get alerts if there are any new messages.
And there are a lot of alerts after 3 minutes already. After ten minutes, we got 49 alerts and 31 messages, and this all with no profile picture. Clearly a big rip-off with a moderated chat. Behind all these messages and the faked profiles are paid employees, so-called moderators, who animate the naïve users to upgrade their account to have the possibility of replying. The registration here is for free, but everything else costs the members a lot of money: clearly misleading and false information from the very beginning. Together Networks Holdings Limited, located in Tortola, British Virgin Islands is the operator.
Only in the terms and conditions, can we find a clear definition
“When you see “JOIN FOR FREE” this means that you can sign up to the Services free of charge, however you will have limited access to features and areas of the Service. Full access requires a Full Membership.”
The subscription packages are very tricky, especially the trial ones for 3 days or a week. Like all other packages, they also have an automatic renewal until terminated on time. This is almost impossible to do. We read plenty of testimonies from former members complaining that they could not end their subscriptions and that it was impossible to contact the support service of the portal Flirt.com.
The renewal policy is mentioned in the terms and conditions
“Please be aware that when you subscribe to any package, including the trial period, you will become liable for automatic renewal billing”.
We can also find clear evidence about the data leakage
“We have an extensive network of sites that we categorize as casual sites. We want to offer you a full range of products and services and in order to do that we will share your details across our Partner Sites… You authorize us to reproduce and broadcast the information contained in your profile including your name, photograph, “chat up line”, description etc. throughout all our part of our Partner Sites and our Group Companies for the purposes of delivering the Services to you.”
