The online dating platform SexEncounters.com advertises with some profile pictures on the landing page. It seems like the member's pool is filled with interesting people and is permanently growing. If you assume that the details shown on the homepage are correct, then the tricks by its operator worked.
We did some research on the internet and found a lot of critical points. Let's starts with the operator of the portal, the Extra Dimensions Limited, which is in Nicosia, Cyprus. Already the location is a hint that this website is not trustworthy. This company runs much more dating portal and is well-known for the network of scam dating platforms. Its tricks are wrong information to mislead the user and fake profiles.
But not just any fake profiles as the fake profiles on this website are operated by fake operators. Of course, the user does not know about the phony chat.
Because of that, it is a rip-off. The use of fictional profiles mentioned in the terms and conditions
"You may interact with content generated by, or with the assistance of, automated online accounts ("Bots" or "Automated Profiles"), where none – or substantially none – of the actions and posts of that Automated Profile are the result of or arise in connection with, a natural person's profile or otherwise User Content."
A fake chat is the one thing. The costs on this platform originate via a subscription for a premium membership. Sure, a paid dating portal is not a scam, but the operator of this website advertises with misleading information. Plus the subscription for the paid premium-membership is a trap.
It is in the terms and conditions that a subscription for a paid membership will renew automatically. That sounds like a cheeky rip off to us. Also, because the membership is worthless as in the member's pool are fake profiles and bots as well. They will stimulate the user to a chat with many messages. But every conversation got no goal at all. A user will need a paid membership to answer to those messages and does not know about the fake chat.
