GranniesToMeet.com advertises with a solid offer. On this online dating portal, registration is free plus we read about some nice things that you can find here on this site. Well, most of the details on the portal are general information about online dating. However, this site claims to make dating easy. Also, the target group are young men who are looking for a date with an older woman. Just as the name of the site explains already. Furthermore, registration is free, and we did not read about costs. So, we could assume that the site is free afterwards as well.
Costs will occur for a paid membership
The online dating portal GranniesToMeet.com offers free registration. But, right after the registration, costs will occur for a premium-membership. That would not be a problem, usually. But the operator of the site does not explain about costs before registration. That means that the operator advertises with information that is irritating and misleading.
Moreover, costs will occur for a premium-membership, which will extend automatically, if it is not terminated in time. That also does not have to be bad in general. But here, it will end in an expensive scam. The automatic renewal is used to trap people in a permanently renewing payment. We know that for a few reasons. First, reviews on the internet mention the subscription rip-off. Second, we know the operator of this site very well already. The company that runs this portal runs a large network of scam dating sites.
Former users speak of a fake chat
Right after the registration is done, a free basic-membership will be offered. Sounds nice, but this kind of membership does not allow any action. To send and to read messages, a paid membership is needed which is quite expensive. A trial membership will be offered that runs for three days. Plus, a trial membership sounds much cheaper than a normal subscription. Anyway, the deadline to cancel it is 72 hours. So, the deadline cannot be met. Then, the trial membership will extend automatically, just as any other kind of subscription on this site.
We also did some research. Some people had the experience of a fake chat. They explained that they received many messages right after the registration that stimulated them to buy a trial membership. To be fair, a fake chat is not noted in the terms and conditions. On the other hand, the operator of the site is well-known for a network of scams. So, the use of fictional profiles to lure people into a subscription trap does not sound too unrealistic.
