The online dating portal TenderFlirt.co.uk offers free registration. More information is not provided on the landing page. So, we had to do some research on the internet. We found many negative reviews about the website and their offer. According to that information, costs will occur for a paid membership. This membership will extend automatically, if it is not terminated in time. That is nothing bad, usually. But in this case, it is used to trap the user. Moreover, we found many reviews about a fake chat scam. Former users had the experience of chatting with a fake chat operator.
On the landing page, we see some profile pictures. However, the reviews on the internet explain that later, profiles in the members´ pool will be blurred. To see the profiles, costs will occur. Also, to read and to send messages, a paid membership is needed. Additionally, a new member will receive a lot of messages in no time. It just takes a few minutes, before the virtual post box starts to fill up with messages. Each message stimulates users to purchase a paid membership, which is quite expensive.
The company behind the portal
We must mention that proof of a fake chat is missing. The operator of the site does not mention fictional profiles or fake chat operators in the terms and conditions. However, the reputation of the company speaks against it for being a scam. The operator of the site is DateBlaster AG, who are based in Cham, Switzerland. This location is a hotspot for companies who run dating websites which are a subscription rip-off. Also, we found some reports about the operator. We found out that this is only one site of a huge scam network.
