LoveSwans.com claims to be a solid online dating portal. The offer on this site sounds good. But the reputation of the platform is not that great. During our research, we found many negative reviews about the site. Former users were not happy at all. As they see it, this website is a cheeky rip-off. We read about high costs and a fake chat. According to the information on the internet, the profiles on this site are all fake and managed by fake chat operators. The profiles show fictional people with whom a date in real-life is impossible.
We checked the legal information to find out more. It did not take long before we found first hints of an unreliable choice. First, the information about the operator of the site is not easy to find. An imprint is missing. The contact details of the operator are noted at the bottom of the terms and conditions. The operator of this site is Cellar Door Ltd, who are based in Gibraltar. This company has a bad reputation online and receives many complaints from former users. In the legal information, we found another suspicious statement.
We found the following note 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.
This website is for entertainment only
Of course, “entertainment” does not sound as bad as a cheeky fake chat. But it is a common expression for that. In general, a dating portal is a service to connect potential matches and not an entertainment service. So, that statement in combination with the reviews by former users about a fake chat is proof enough. The purpose of the fake chat is to increase the operator’s income. Costs will occur for “credits” which are needed to send messages. Also, the credits will be topped up automatically. This sounds like a subscription rip-off to us.
