Flirtilley.com looks great on the first view. On the landing page we see the image of an attractive woman. This gives us the impression that the online dating portal has a lot of members that look just the same. As we see it, this site is a casual dating portal. So, things should work out quite simple and fast. According to the impression that the landing page gives us, it will not be a challenge to find a hot match here and have a nice date. The registration is for free, plus we do not read anything about costs after that. We do see a link on the bottom of the homepage to unsubscribe. But that does not apply to the subscription for a paid membership. It only applies to the site Newsletter. It seems that site could be a great opportunity to find a date here in the UK.
As always, we did some research on the internet to find out more about the site and its operator. We found a lot of negative reviews from former customers. That surprised us, because the first impression is quite good and the information on the landing page does sound promising.
But it turns out that the information on the landing page is quite misleading and wrong. The best example for that is the offer with a free registration. Actually, the registration is really for free but not the use of the site. Costs will appear for a subscription which will extend automatically at the end of the term.
Usually, that does not have to be something bad. But in this case, the site has got a bad reputation. Also, the operator is well-known for a huge network of dating sites that are all a big rip-off.
Fake profiles in the members’ pool
The premium-membership seems to be a dangerous deal for the user as it might be a subscription trap. Additionally, it will never be worth the money as it appears that the online dating website is a fake chat as well. According to the information that we found on the internet; the members’ pool is filled with fake profiles that show fictional people.
Those fake profiles are managed by fake operators that entice the users to a chat, for which they pay a lot of money. A fake profile shows a fictional person with which a date in real-life is not possible. Of course, the users do not know about that. They assume that all profiles belong to real people.
So, it seems like it is not possible to arrange a date here. The operator of the online dating website mentions in the terms and conditions that the portal is for entertainment only. That is a common way to express a fake chat with a synonym.
Here is the excerpt of the terms and conditions
“The Service offered for Your personal, non-commercial use. You comprehend, acknowledge, and accept that our Service, presented in the style of an online dating service, is an entertainment service. All content is provided for the entertainment and amusement of You. Our Site does not guarantee that You will find a date, partner, or participant, or that you will meet any member, user or profile in person.”
A bad reputation
As usual, we did some research on the internet. We found a lot of negative reviews about the online dating website. Moreover, the operator Crix Ltd. from the Seychelles especially has got a poor reputation. It turns out that this is only one site out of many operated by this company. All sites in the network are a rip-off. They operate a fake chat scam and seem to be a subscription trap.
