The online dating website advertises with a large member’s pool. On the landing page, we see a few profile pictures and assume that they are all real members. Additionally, we see several people that are registered. Regard to that number this website gets new members every second that passes. The number is by more than one million. That would mean that this website is one of the most visited dating websites in the UK.
Of course, it is not, as FlirtLocal.com is nothing more than a cheeky rip-off. The operator is well-known on the internet, and also we had some experience with the company. FlirtLocal.com is not the only website of the operator but only one out of many. The tricks and irritating information seem to be always the same.
The operator of FlirtLocal.com is High Knight Limited. That company is in Nicosia, Cyprus. Already the location of the company is a first hint for us that this website is non-reputable. One trick of the operator is the advertisement for free registration. But after registration, the user will have to pay a lot of money. After registration is done, the fake operators will take action.
The fake chat is in the terms and conditions
“In order to enhance your amusement experience, to stimulate you and others to use our Services more extensively, and to generally sprinkle some sparkle and excitement into the Services of FLIRTLOCAL.COM, we may post fictitious profiles, generate or respond to communications by means of automated programs or scripts that simulate or attempt to simulate your intercommunication with another real human being…”
Regard to some reviews on the internet there is not one real person in the member’s pool of FlirtLocal.com. That also means that the number of million already registered users on the landing page is consciously wrong as well. It is to entice the user to sign up.
After registration, the user will receive a lot of messages, but the user can’t read those messages or reply to them. To send or to open messages, then a paid membership is needed. It is typical for a subscription trap. As far as we can see is one as well.
