MumsDateDads.co.uk is a dating platform specifically aimed at UK-based single parents searching for new dating adventures. At first glance, the site looks absolutely trustworthy. To find out whether it can be recommended or not, we created a free profile, inspected the terms and conditions and searched for user experiences and reviews on the internet. Unfortunately, our research revealed that MumsDateDads.co.uk is just a scam with a subscription rip-off.
After the free registration, users are only able to modify their profiles, browse the members’ area and use the search and filter functions. But to access the chat feature, which is absolutely essential for getting in touch with other members, a paid membership subscription is needed. However, we learned that signing up for any of the subscriptions on offer is not a good idea.
MumsDateDads.co.uk operates an automatic renewal billing policy. So users must cancel their subscriptions to avoid being charged regularly. But unfortunately, the site operator is known for making the cancellation process terribly complicated in order to get as much money as possible out of each user. As a consequence, many users end up stuck in a long and costly subscription trap.
To get new users to sign up for the risky subscriptions as fast as possible, site employees create and operate “test dating profiles”, which are used to send alluring chat messages to new users right after their registration. Users are thus inveigled into believing the site is full of flirty single parents and that their chances of finding a date quickly are very high. But these fake profiles only show fictitious people, and meeting them offline is obviously impossible. So this is just a cheeky scam.
Here is an excerpt from the terms and conditions
From time to time, the Company employees (or employees of its parent or affiliated companies) may create test dating profiles for the purpose of checking and testing the functionality of our Website and Service to improve the quality and user experience for its Users.
Our experience of the site operator
MumsDateDads.co.uk is operated by Cintilet Ltd from Dublin in Ireland. We have already written and published several reviews about this company and its other scam dating websites. It always uses exactly the same tricks and strategies to subject innocent love-seekers to a rip-off. We advise you to stay well away from all websites run by this operator.
