The landing page of Moist.dating is very simple and attractive, but it does not provide any useful details. So, we decide to sign up for a free account to test the full potential of the website.
The first impression is quite positive, but soon we find out that the options are extremely limited. We can navigate through other members' profiles and look at their pictures, but we cannot interact with them. In order to do that, we must subscribe to a paid membership.
Here is where the scam begins.
There are several expensive options, and most people will be attracted by the 3-days trial which is reasonably cheap. Moist.dating clearly states that an automatic renewal process is applied, and this is quite honest on their part.
But they also say that the subscription can be easily canceled online. However, many negative reviews point out that the company makes the cancellation very difficult. In the past, many users discovered that their credit card has been charged even after they terminated the contract.
According to our experience, this is a classic subscription rip-off.
Is it also a fake chat scam
However, we cannot find any definitive proof of this. But there is a short statement at the end of the terms and conditions. This makes us believe that fake chat operators might be hiding behind the member's profiles.
Combining this with the online reviews that suggest that the profiles are fictional, we suspect that this could also be a fake chat scam. Many former customers complain that they have never been able to meet anybody in real life.
Here is the excerpt from the terms and conditions
To maximise your chances of finding success, we've enhanced the members’ area of Moist US to include members with all interests and characteristics.
The company behind Moist.dating
Most.dating is controlled by Venntro Media Group Ltd, who are based in Slough, in the UK. They operate several other dating websites and their reputation on the internet is terrible.
They are known for repeatedly adopting subscription scams and fake chats to pursue their purposes.
