The platform HornyGranny.co.uk offers free registration. On the landing page, we read some general information about the platform and get a small preview of the member's pool. As this website seems to be just tremendous but entirely unknown, we did some research. There we found a lot of adverse reports about the dating portal. On the internet are some reviews that point out that this website is a rip-off.
Let's talk about registration. Registration is free, but there is no information on the landing page about the costs, and we will get charged after that. As it turns out, this website is not for free. The user will have to buy coins first to be able to send messages.
The portal is just a front, designed to lure singles who are not experienced in online dating and do not know how to watch for the warning signs. Once they lure them in, they charge them high prices just to communicate with fake profiles, but the newbies are not aware of it. They get bombarded with tons of texts, mails and messages with erotic content by paid moderators with the one and only goal to animate the users to very expensive communications. It says "free" enrolment on the website but this is misleading. Every single message must be paid, a very pricey amusement for useless communications. It is a common trick to use fake profiles that are operated by fake operators. And the company behind this scam can get away with it because they mention it in their terms and conditions:
The fake chat is in the terms and conditions
“6. 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 HORNYGRANNY.CO.UK, 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 (though none really exists and any dialog is generated by programming), and we may employ or contract for the paid services of real persons who may interact with you as part of their compensated employment.”
In the terms and conditions, HornyGranny.co.uk mentions the fake profiles with the purpose of entertainment. But a user of this website does not seek entertainment but a match to have a date. Just as the landing page promises. There it is written that you can chat and meet here. As it turns out, it is only possible to meet a fictional person here online during a chat. Physical contact is not possible.
