The online dating website SteamyMatches.com looks excellent and reliable. The landing page has a modern design, and we read some further information. We see several profile pictures on the landing page and a naked couple. So we assume that the people on the profile pictures are all real members. Additionally, we think that it is possible to arrange a date via this website.
One great offer of the dating portal SteamyMatches.com is the free registration. Plus the website advertises with a slogan:
“We are one of the biggest dating sites around!”
All the details we got on the landing page sound very promising. But after we did some research, our imagination of the website went from good to bad. The registration is for free, but afterwards, the platform will charge a lot of money. The costs originate via a subscription for membership. To send or to read messages, a user needs a paid membership.
It is not something unusual as a paid website is not a rip-off. But in this case, it is. In the terms and conditions, it says that a subscription will extend if it is not cancelled in time.
“Your Membership remains in effect and will automatically be renewed at the end of each term…”
Regard to the subscription scam we also found some reviews on the internet that confirm our impression.
The advertisement that you will find a date on this platform is wrong. The profiles in the member’s pool of SteamyMatches.com are fake. Here is the excerpt of the terms and conditions:
“6. In order to enhance your amusement experience, to stimulate you and others to use our Services more extensively, and to generally sprinkle some sparkle and excitement into the Services of STEAMYMATCHES.COM, we may post fictitious profiles, generate or respond to communications by means of automated programs or scripts that simulate or attempt to simulate your intercommunication with another real human being…”
Regarding the information in the terms and conditions plus the reviews on the internet, the member’s pool of SteamyMatches.com is full of fake profiles. The fake profiles are operated by fake operators that will entice the user to a senseless conversation. This way, the user gets tempted to buy a paid membership and to stay on the website. Of course, fake operators do not mention that they are a fictitious person. The user gets tricked in lured into a cheeky rip-off.
The operator is the Theme Bow Limited who is located in East Sussex, United Kingdom.
