The online dating portal PinaLove.com might not have the latest design. But, it advertises with a high number of registered members. With regard to the information on the landing page, this portal has got more than 1.5 million members. That sounds a lot. Plus, we see a number that shows the users that are currently online. Last but not least, we see a selection of profile pictures on the homepage. Well, that looks very promising. Now, the landing page does not offer a lot of information. We also know that registration is free and that most members are from Asia.
High costs occur after registration
PinaLove.com advertises with free registration. But, after the registration, costs will occur for a premium membership. Now, that is not that bad, so could we call this website a scam because of that? Still, it is a misleading piece of information and clearly not a good sign. So, the first impression of the site is not good. The one and only piece of information is not exactly right. Anyway, there is more. On the internet, we found reviews of former users.
With regard to their impression, this website is a scam. So, the misleading advertisement is not the only bad thing to mention here.
After the registration, a user will get a free basic membership. That sounds fair, but this kind of membership is useless. To read and to send messages, costs will occur. Additionally, we found some hints for a fake chat. Well, on the internet, we found some reports about that. But, we were not able to find proof of moderation or the use of fictional profiles in the terms and conditions. In the end, we can only point out that some former users reported the experience of fake chats. They explain that the profiles show fictional people.
Fake profiles on the site
Now, proof of the use of fake profiles is missing. But, we want to point out our concerns as well. Some of the profiles that are displayed on the landing page appear fake to us. Plus, the website claims to have more than 1,5 million registered users. That is a lot for such an unpopular platform. As we see it, the number is either made up or is filled with fake profiles. However, fake profiles and a fake chat can not be approved. But, there is more to mention about the costs.
With regard to the reviews on the internet, the premium membership is a trap. It will continue until the user actively terminates the subscription. But, former users claim that the cancellation is not easy. In the end, the website appears to be a subscription rip-off. By the way, Singapore is not a trustworthy location with regard to this industry. All signs suggest a scam.
