Already on the landing page of LocalTemptation.com, we see many profile pictures, and the website is covered with images of people. We could assume that they show they are real people and of course, actual members of the dating platform as well. One thing that is missing on the website is useful information, so we did some research.
While we did some research, we found some negative reviews of former customers. They mention that the website is full of fake profiles. It appears that this online dating website is a scam with a fake chat.
Regard to the details that we found on the internet the rip off starts right after the registration. The operator of this website is the High Knight Limited that has a bad reputation on the internet. Nicosia, Cyprus is the location of the company, which is a unique location for a dating website in the UK. It advertises with irritating information, the registration is for free, but the use of the dating portal is not.
A user will need a paid premium-membership to get in touch with others and to respond to the messages of other profiles. And those profiles appear to be a fake.
It is in in the terms and conditions
“we may post fictitious profiles, generate or respond to communications by means of automated programs or scripts that simulate or attempt to simulate your intercommunication with another real human being (though none exists and any dialogue is generated by programming), and we may employ or contract for the paid services of real persons who may interact with you as part of their compensated employment.”
That sounds like a fake chat to us. The fake profiles are operated by fake operators that entice the user to stay on the website. For that, they entertain the user with many messages. Plus they will attract the member to get a paid premium membership. Premium membership is needed to have a chat. It is where the rip off happens. The subscription for the premium membership is a trap as it will renew automatically. That is mentioned in the terms and conditions as well.
