The online dating portal LoveThing.co.uk offers free registration. Also, we read that this website is 100 per cent free. That is stated on the landing page. So, we could assume that the use of the site is free as well. However, that is nothing more than misleading information. Costs will occur for a paid membership. A premium-membership is needed if a user wants to read and send messages. Misleading information is a negative sign, but that is not a rip-off. But more is about to come. The subscription appears to be a trap.
Any subscription on this platform will extend automatically, if it is not terminated in time. That does not have to be bad, but we found many reviews about a subscription rip-off. A normal subscription for a paid membership is quite expensive. But a cheap trial membership will be offered as well. Because of that, that offers seems to be the better choice. However, the trial membership is the actual trap. It will extend to a monthly paid subscription without any chance of avoid that. The fake chat operators stimulate new users to make the purchase.

Former users describe this website as a fake chat scam. They explain that a new user receives many messages right after the registration. Those messages stimulate new members to buy a premium-membership or take the offer of a trial membership. However, a fake chat operator will not identify as a fictional person. Plus, a fake profile is not marked as such. “Entertainment” is an often-used synonym for moderation. The operator of the site is Desdemona Ltd, who are based in Dublin, Ireland. This company has a bad reputation on the internet, where we found many negative reviews.
