According to the landing page, KerrangDating.co.uk is a great place to meet singles who are looking for meaningful relationships. The portal advertises with free registration, a responsive customer care team, and a safe and secure online dating experience. Altogether, our first impression of KerrangDating.co.uk is positive.
To determine whether the site is truly a good choice or not, we signed up and gave it a try. Also, we carefully read the terms and conditions, and searched the internet for user reviews. Sadly, the site cannot live up to its positive first impression. Our research revealed that it is just a scam.
With the free basic-membership, users can only create a personal profile, browse the members’ pool, use the search functions, and send a limited number of so-called “winks” to others. However, to unlock the chat, which is the most essential tool for meeting new people, a paid membership subscription is needed.
Unfortunately, it turned out that the premium-subscriptions are dangerous traps. They renew automatically, and must therefore be cancelled by the user to avoid recurring charges. Although cancelling is an option, the site’s operator is known to make the cancellation process awfully difficult, in order to get as much money as possible out of each user. Hence, it is a subscription rip-off.
Furthermore, we learned that the members of KerrangDating.co.uk cannot be trusted. In the terms and conditions, we read that the site is an “entertainment” service, and that any profiles, messages and communication may not be genuine. In other words, this means that the members’ pool contains fictional profiles, which were created and are controlled by the site’s employees, or hired operators who contribute to fake chats. As meeting such fake members in real life is simply impossible, chatting on KerrangDating.co.uk is just a waste of time.
