We know already that the online dating portal KinkMeets.com is another scam operated by the Flaming Head Limited, headquartered in Nicosia, Cyprus. To understand the rip-off scheme better, we proceed to register for free, but beforehand, we read the small print on the landing page.
"I also agree to receive email newsletters, account updates, special offers and communications from computer generated virtual profiles…”
Clearly, the first evidence that the dating website has a moderated chat, many faked profiles and bots in the member pool. Anyhow, we proceed with the registration.
The usual easy and fast signup procedure awaits us. We need an email address, a password, provide our birthdate, agree to the terms and conditions, and sign up. Without an email verification, we are redirected to the main members’ area where we are asked to do the last step of the registration. Providing a username, location and sexual preferences.
The main page looks totally outdated. At the top of the page, the user will find the search functions, chats, live cams, sexy games and profile settings. The rest of the page is full of small preview pictures of the members. Before we even have the chance to look at some profiles, various women are already hitting upon us. This is a big surprise because we do not have one picture uploaded yet. This is already a part of the rip-off. The newbie does not know that these messages are all computer-generated to animate them into purchasing a member upgrade. The account upgrade is necessary because without that the user cannot reply and chat freely.
Here is the excerpt from the terms and conditions
”we may post fictitious profiles, generate or respond to communications utilizing automated programs or scripts that simulate or attempt to simulate your intercommunication with another real human being (though none really exists and any dialogue is generated by programming)
However, the subscription also should be used with caution because it will be extended automatically, and you cannot cancel it first. Recently, there have been many reports from disgruntled customers saying that they cannot withdraw from the contract, and the operator continues to charge them money.
