On PlentyMoreFish.com, finding a matching partner seems to be as easy as pie. Depending on your desires and preferences, you can choose between different “fish ponds” for your search. This idea is fun, and our overall first impression is positive.
To find out whether the portal can live up to all its claims and promises, we create a free test account and study the terms and conditions. Furthermore, we search the internet for user reviews and take a closer look at the site’s operator. Unfortunately, we cannot recommend that you register here. This site is a rip-off.
On the landing page, PlentyMoreFish.com promises that users can message every single member for free. This turns out to be false. The free basic membership only allows users to browse the members’ areas (“fish ponds”), and to send so-called “winks” to others. But to use the communication features without any limitations, a paid membership subscription is needed. Unfortunately, these subscriptions extend automatically and are very difficult to cancel. Thus, they can easily lead to a long and costly subscription trap.
In the fine print underneath the terms and conditions, we read that the site has “enhanced the members’ area”. This means that the “fish ponds” are full of fictitious profiles, which are created by the site’s employees. So, finding a matching partner for a date here is extremely unlikely. The fake profiles are only used to lure new users into signing up for a paid membership as quickly as possible.
The following excerpt is from the terms and conditions
To maximise your chances of finding success, we've enhanced the members’ area of Plenty More Fish UK to include members with all interests and characteristics.
PlentyMoreFish.com is run by Venntro Media Group Ltd, from Slough, in the UK. This company operates a vast network of scam dating websites and has already received countless negative reviews and customer complaints on the internet. Aside from their fake chat scams and subscription rip-offs, they are known for data leaks and poor customer support. To avoid a disappointing experience, we strongly advise you to try your luck elsewhere. There are plenty more fish in the sea.
