MeetWives.com looks legit on the first impression. On the landing page are some profile pictures and the number of members. This online dating website got more than two million members. That would mean that this is one of the most visited dating websites in general. We also see some profiles pictures and could assume that they show real people. But all of that is a fake as it turns out during our research.
The High Knight Limited operates the portal. This company is located in Nicosia, Cyprus and has a bad reputation on the internet. It runs a vast network of dating websites, and all of them have negative reviews. The operator advertises with wrong and misleading information.
Former customers complain about fake profiles and a fake chat. On this platform are fake operators that operate the fake profiles.
The fake operators entice the user to a chat and to get a paid membership. Premium membership is needed to get in touch with others, but the user does not know that all profiles in the member’s pool are a fake.
That is in the terms and conditions
“we may post fictitious profiles, generate or respond to communications using 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.”
By the way, we have to mention that already the location of the operator is one first hint that this website is not trustworthy. As mentioned previously, a member will need a paid premium-membership to stay in touch with others. The fake operators will send a new user message to entice the user to get one.
That means that this website is a rip off with a fake chat and additionally a scam with a subscription trap. It is mentioned in the terms and conditions as well that the subscription will renew automatically if the cancellation is not made on time. Admittedly, that is a scam.
