Hot-Dates24.com advertises with hand-checked member profiles, free registration and a constantly growing member base. The portal appears an ideal place to quickly find hot local singles searching for new dating experiences and steamy encounters. To find out if this is really the case, we did some research. We signed up, explored the site’s features, studied the terms and conditions and searched the web for user reviews. Unfortunately, our research shows the site is just an expensive subscription rip-off and that the chances of finding genuine members here are extremely low.
With free basic membership, users can create a personal profile, browse the members’ area and use the search functions. Surprisingly, they can even send chat messages to other members without having to pay anything. However, opening and reading received chat messages is only possible with paid VIP-membership. Users wishing to communicate fully with others have no choice but to opt for one of the available VIP-subscriptions.
Unfortunately, these VIP-subscriptions are dangerous. They renew automatically and are very difficult to cancel. The site operator is known to make the cancellation process extremely complicated and even to ignore cancellation requests. Hence, users can easily get caught up in a long and costly subscription trap.
Real dates unlikely
It further transpires that it is highly unlikely that users can ever arrange offline encounters via this portal. The members’ area is full of fake profiles, which are presumably created by site employees and operated by “chatbots”, a computer-generated messaging system. In our experience such fake profiles are used solely to lure new users into paid services as fast as possible.
The operator of Hot-Dates24.com is Date4Friend AG, which is based in Zug, Switzerland. This company is responsible for a whole network of scam dating websites. They have already received countless negative user reviews and complaints online.
