The online dating portal La-Date.com got a friendly, and appealing design. On the landing page, we see the screen for free registration. Also, there we see an image of a happy young woman. That gives us the impression that this portal makes its users happy. Additionally, the homepage offers some general information about the service. With regard to that information, the website can proudly present a high number of members. Also, the chances of finding a match here are good, thanks to a solid functional matchmaker system. To join the site and find matches, you will need to register first.
This site is for entertainment only
La-Date.com offers a nice first impression. But, our research shows that you should never judge a book by its cover. On the internet, this website has got a bad reputation. Former users explain that it is a cheeky rip-off. The profiles in the members´ pool are fake and controlled by fake operators. Also, high costs will occur for a premium membership that will end in a trap. Well, that is the experience of former users.
We checked the site and read the legal information to find out more. Well, this portal is for entertainment only, which is a common synonym for moderation.
With regard to the terms and conditions, the site wants to entertain you. Well, a dating site is not usually for entertainment. Here, fake chat operators control fake profiles to entertain you. But, while chatting with you, the fake operators will not identify as such. It seems that they will start a chat, but they will not mention moderation. Also, their fake profiles are not marked as such.
With regard to reviews, users do not know about moderation. Primarily because the operator uses synonyms to describe the fake chat. This way, a fake chat is noted but not called by its real name.
The following is stated in the terms and conditions
Any statement that may be posted on the Service is for informational and entertainment purposes only and is not intended to replace or substitute for any professional financial, medical, legal, or other advice.
As we see it, the information on the landing page is very misleading. A chatty and open-minded members´ pool is advertised, but all profiles are moderated in order to scam you. Now, costs will occur after the registration. The registration itself is free, then, but it becomes expensive when you upgrade to a premium membership. Plus, the subscription for the premium membership will extend automatically if it is not terminated in time. This is not necessarily wrong in general, but here, it is a subscription trap.
Further to reviews on the internet, the operator makes termination difficult. So, the subscription will continue, even if users want to cancel it. Terminations actioned in time are not accepted or simply ignored, according to experiences of former users. In the end, users will unwillingly pay a lot of money to chat with moderated fake profiles.
