For someone with extensive experience in the online dating industry, MeetMatures.co.uk shows all the typical warning signs of a probable rip-off. First, the landing page does not provide potential subscribers with any information. They do not explain the kind of service that they offer, the customer target group, or the eventual costs. All we see is a preview of some of the people who you should be able to contact, after signing up.
At the bottom of the page, we come across some small print. This states that most of the profiles are fictional. To find out more, we decide to have an in-depth look at the Terms and Conditions. Here, MeetMatures.co.uk admits to creating fake accounts, to communicate with genuine members. These profiles are controlled by professional moderators, or chatbots. The bots are computer programs, designed to replicate a human conversation.
In either case, this is a scam because there is no way to distinguish these accounts from genuine ones. Users are tricked into thinking that they are chatting with a real person. So, they will be more likely to spend whatever is required, to prolong the conversation. Unfortunately, it does not matter how much you are willing to pay. None of this will ever lead to a physical encounter.
Excerpt from the GTC (as of 25/02/2024)
In order to enhance your amusement experience, to stimulate you and others to use our Services more extensively, and to generally sprinkle some sparkle and excitement into the Services of MEETMATURES.CO.UK, 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 really exists and any dialog 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.
Who are they?
As already mentioned at the beginning of our review, MeetMatures.co.uk does not provide any legal information about the name of the operating company, or where they are based. This is a clear sign that this company cannot be trusted. If they hide something as simple as that, there is a high chance that they do the same thing again and again, to deceive their members.
