TransDatingAds.co.uk offers the chance to get in contact with local transsexual women. More importantly, they mention that it is possible to do it for free. But this is a lie. The operator, Arnaze Online Ltd, advertises false information. To use the platform, members must pay for a subscription. These subscriptions are not cheap.
Charging for the use of a dating platform is not a scam. In fact, most of the best dating platforms are not free. The problem is that here, users will only find fake profiles. If they upgrade their membership to a VIP subscription, they can become victims of a subscription rip-off. We have a long experience with this operator. We have written several reviews about many sites managed by them. All turned out to be scams and rip-offs of all kinds. Here we have found the same.
Employees create fake profiles
In the terms and conditions, we find out easily that the platform is full of fake profiles. These profiles are created by fake chat operators. The company explains that the fictitious profiles have the purpose of checking the functionality of the site. However, the main goal of these fake profiles is to entice new users to pay for a VIP membership.
We experienced this scam right after registering. We received several messages, but to read them, we were asked to upgrade to a paid membership. Former customers also describe similar experiences in their reviews. They explain that they received a lot of messages from suspicious profiles and to read them they had to pay for a subscription.
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.
A clear subscription rip-off
The subscriptions are not cheap. A one-month subscription costs almost 25 pounds. But the problem is that these subscriptions will renew automatically. Terminating them is complicated. We have read several reviews from former users mentioning these problems and complaining about a subscription rip-off. It seems that this scam is quite common on all the platforms run by this company.
