The online dating platform, TheCoupleClub.com, claims to be an ideal place to get in touch with other singles and couples who are searching for new adventures. Outwardly, the site looks like a decent choice. After some further research, however, we cannot recommend anyone to sign up on this website. Our review shows that it is just a subscription rip-off, and a fake chat scam.
Enticing fake messages
In the terms and conditions, we read that the site contains so-called “test dating profiles”. In other words, this means that the members’ area is full of fake profiles, which were created and are controlled by employed fake chat operators.
From our experience, such profiles are typically used to send enticing chat messages to new users, for the purpose of luring them into the chat. The chat, however, can only be used by paying subscribers. In order to read and write messages, users are basically forced to sign up for a paid subscription first. With this cheeky strategy, TheCoupleClub.com tricks its users into the paid services.
The following excerpt is from the terms and conditions
From time to time, the Company employees (or employees of its parent or affiliated companies) may create test dating profiles for the purpose of checking and testing the functionality of our Website and Service to improve the quality and user experience for its Users.
Unfortunately, all subscriptions are subject to an automatic renewal billing policy. Therefore, they must be cancelled by the user to avoid recurring charges. However, in order to get as much money as possible from each user, the operator of TheCoupleClub.com makes the cancellation process extremely difficult.
Not a good choice
Since most, if not all, member profiles are fake, it is highly unlikely to ever arrange a real date on this website. Moreover, the paid subscriptions are nothing but dangerous traps. The company responsible for this scam is Desdemona Ltd, who are based in Dublin, Ireland. This operator runs numerous other infamous dating platforms, some of which have already received many negative reviews and complaints online. We advise you to never sign up on any of their websites.
