Details on LocalMatches.com
The website LocalMatches.com advertises with a lot of information, some positive customer experiences and profiles pictures. The landing page shows a few numbers that seem like statistics of the website. Nearly 90 percent of all contact here end with a date and even more people have multiple hook ups. That means that the success rate on this platform in one of the best in the UK. Additionally another statistic shows that the website has more than 29 Million members.
As those numbers sound too good to be true to us we did some research on the website. It did not take too long and we found a great number of negative reviews about the dating platform and its operator.
Mostly all information on the landing page are wrong
We found out that mostly all information on the landing page are wrong and misleading. The only thing that is not wrong is that the registration is for free. But as the landing page does not mention that the website LocalMatches.com charges a lot of money of its user if they want to get in touch with other members this information is also a part of the scam. The number of members of this website is a trick to entice the user to do the registration. Additionally the positive experiences that are shown on the landing page are a fake as well.
We read in the many negative reviews that we found while our research on the internet that the member’s area of LocalMatches.com is filled with fake profiles. The fake profiles are operated by fake operators to entice the user to spend money on the website.
The operator does mention the fake profiles in the terms and condition but the information is more hidden than provided as the fake chat is not called by its name:
“You acknowledge that You understand that some of the profiles and Members displayed on them are not actual members of the site. CUPID EPD PROGRAM / ONLINE REGENT are not associated with any other user of the site, but are sent to You in an effort to promote broader enjoyment, additional activity and fuller participation in all our Services.”
We found some reviews that mention that there is not a single real person on LocalMatches.com. The fake operator uses their fake profiles to entice the user to buy a paid premium-membership that is needed to start a conversation or to answer to messages of other members. We found some reviews about a subscription trap as well and that the paid premium-membership extend automatically. The operator of Lloyds Compliance Ltd is located in London.
Conclusion of our LocalMatches.com review
The online dating website LocalMatches.com is a fake chat. The platform uses fake operators that operate fake profiles to entice the user to buy a paid premium-membership. The user does not know about the fake profiles as they are not clearly marked as such and the fake operators do not identify themselves as such. The user gets tricked and has to pay for a membership that is senseless.
