The landing page of UK-Mums.com displays a picture of a normal-looking woman, in her fifties. Up to this point, one might think that the site is probably reliable. However, our experience led us to recognize the site's graphic design right away. While we were not very keen to sign up, we decided to create a free profile, to see if this site was indeed a scam. For the purposes of this review, we read the Terms and Conditions carefully. A word of advice is to always do the same.
The following note is from the Terms and Conditions
The period of notice, or, if a different period was stated when the paid access was purchased, for memberships with a term of no more than one month: 14 days, and for memberships with a term of more than one month: 30 days. […] The termination of the fee-based contractual relationship must be in text form in order to be effective.
To ensure successful processing of the termination, the declaration should contain the full name, the service used, the e-mail address used for registration and the user name. The cancellation can be sent via e-mail to [email protected]. Alternatively, we also offer the termination of the fee-based contract by fax +41 (0) 41 5087019 or by post.
The Terms and Conditions state that cancellation of the subscription is subject to a 14-day notice period, and a letter of termination, among other conditions. For an online dating site, this could not be simpler, could it? And who uses a fax nowadays? In fact, our review concurs with the experience of deceived users, whose comments we read online.
Any cancellation, whether on time or not, will be wilfully ignored by Paidwings AG, a company domiciled in Cham, in Switzerland. As a result, if they take out the premium membership, users are trapped in a long and expensive subscription, against their will.
If you thought you could get away with chatting with horny women without falling for the scam, well, you are wrong. All profiles are fake. They are managed by contractors. There is certainly no guarantee that they are as hot as the photo they display. More importantly, their only aim is to get users to take out a subscription. And if they fall for it, they will never hear from them again. That is the kind of experience one can expect on such rip-off sites.
The operator was careful enough not to mention the use of fake profiles or moderators in their Terms and Conditions, but our experience and the many negative reviews we have found online, allow us to say it straight out. This site is nothing more than a vile scam.
