The online dating website LetsMeetup.com advertises with free registration. It is one irritating detail as the registration is for free but no the use of the portal. After the registration, a new member will need a paid membership.
Well, a paid dating portal is not a scam, but this one tricks its users with wrong information and leads them into a subscription, which is a trap. All starts once registration is finished. Regard to the reviews we found on the internet, and it does only take a few minutes until there are a lot of messages in the virtual post box.
As we see it, those messages come from fake operators via their fake profiles. But as the operator does not mention anything about fake profiles or a moderated chat in general, we assume that. It could be a trick by the website’s operator to entice the user to pay for the subscription. The reason is that if a user wants to answer those messages, a paid membership is needed.
Membership will renew automatically
The costs originate via a subscription for a premium membership. Regard to some information on the internet this membership is quite expensive. But the operator got one more trick for that. LetsMeetup.com offers its users a cheaper trial premium-membership. But regarding the former customers' experiences, it is not possible to cancel the subscription in time. As mentioned in the terms and conditions, membership will renew automatically, if the deadline is missed to cancel. Admittedly, this is a cheeky rip-off.
The portal is operated by the Hub People Limited, which is in Douglas, Isle of Man. As we see it, already the location of the operator is one first hint that the company is not trustworthy, and the website not recommendable.
