The online dating portal Recon.com has got a solid first impression. This website has got a modern design and advertises with a promising offer. Here, gay men who have a fetish can register. It seems that more than just one fetish can be found here. On the landing page, we see some images of men in bondage clothes. Also, we found some general information about the site. Now, we know that registration is free and only takes a few minutes. Also, it seems that the chance to meet interesting people is high, thanks to a high number of members.
Fake messages from fake profiles
Recon.com appears to be a promising casual dating website for men. But, we did some research on the internet and found many negative reviews about the site. In general, most of the former users had a bad experience. With regard to their impressions, they report the members´ pool is filled with fake profiles that are controlled by fake operators. We found many reports about a scam with a fake chat on the internet. But, we did not find proof in the legal information.
The operator of the site does not mention fake profiles or fake chat operators in the terms and conditions.
A few sources on the internet mention a computer program that entices new members to a chat. The messages animate users to make a purchase. This is a common trick to lure new users into a trap. We checked the legal information and found out that costs will occur for a premium membership. So, the free registration is a misleading piece of information. As we see it, that is the first part of the actual rip-off. It seems that the subscription for the paid membership is a cheeky trap. It will renew automatically, which is not a good thing here.
This website is not recommendable
Now, automatic renewal of a subscription does not have to be that bad, but in general, this is a customer-friendly function to ensure permanent use. But, it can be used as a trap as well. According to the reports on the internet, this is the case here. Also, there are some indications of that on the site itself. For example, misleading and confusing information, like free registration. By the way, some images on the landing page look like they are fake. All signs indicate an unreliable website.
On the internet, this website has got a poor reputation. Former users were not happy with the service. We read about fake profiles that seem to be moderated. Also, the price-performance ratio is generally poor. Plus, many people felt trapped in a permanently renewing membership. The internet community warns of the site and claims it is a scam. With regard to reviews, a new member will receive many messages that animate to buy a premium membership. If the purchase is made, the trap will snap closed.
