The online dating website LustyLocals.com looks great on the first view. It advertises with a free registration and promises that you will be lucky here. But that is all just made up and misleading. This dating portal is a cheeky scam.
We did some research on the internet and read the terms and conditions. The operator of the website is Bulova Invest Limited, located in Tortola on the British Virgin Islands. That location is an international hotspot for dubious operators. They run dating websites that are a rip-off with a subscription trap. On the internet we found many negative reviews about the company. They run a whole network of such sites.
Always the same shady tricks
We have had some experiences with the company before. The tricks are always the same. It all starts with the advertisement of the free registration. However, right after the registration process, costs will appear if you want to use the site in any way. A new member will get a free basic-membership. This is useless because it is not possible to read or to send messages.
It is a cheeky trap
A new user will also receive a lot of messages that come from other profiles. Because of that, many former customers mention a fake chat in their reviews. In general, we assume that this site is a fake chat, but we do not have clear evidence for that. Moderated chats, or the use of fake operators and fake profiles, are not mentioned in the terms and conditions.
However, the operator of the site does mention the automatic renewal of the membership if it is not terminated in time. According to the information that we found a new user will get the offer of a trial membership. That trial membership will run for three days but the deadline for termination is 72 hours. So, a termination in time is not possible. The trial membership will extend automatically, and the subscription trap will snap around the user.
