The online dating portal Whindr.com shows some profile pictures on the landing page. This website advertises with beautiful women. This portal offers free registration which is done in a few minutes. We assume that the members´ pool is full of young and interesting people who are looking for casual dates. Also, because there is no information about costs on the landing page, we could assume that the use of the site is free as well. Altogether, the first impression of this site is solid, and the design is modern and appealing. It could be a good choice.
This website is a bad choice
Whindr.com looks like a great casual dating portal. On the landing page, we see good looking profile pictures. In general, this platform advertises with erotic content. Plus, the site promises a lot of good things. However, we did some research and found out that the reputation of this site is not good. We found reviews about a rip-off with a fake chat and a subscription trap. Former users mention that high costs occur after the free registration. That makes the advertisement of free registration to be a misleading piece of information.
However, that is not the worst thing about this site. The members´ pool is full of fake profiles which show fictional people with whom a date in real-life is not possible. Of course, the user does not know that. On the landing page, we read about the fun that you can find here. However, you will have a lot of fun while chatting, but you will never meet another member of the site. The fake chat operators take the first step in a conversation and actively lure users into chat, according to the reviews on the internet.
The following is stated in the terms and conditions
Not all the profiles on Whindr are real. We use Entertainment profiles with whom you can chat, but not physically interact.
High costs for nothing
We also found reviews about costs that occur for credits and a subscription for a premium-membership. But this website is not worth the price. We also found reports about a rip-off with a subscription trap which will extend automatically. In the legal information, we only found the information that after 14 days all purchases are not refundable. You must cancel your subscription in time. So, a subscription trap seems to be possible. In any case, this website is a cheeky fake chat.
We found many negative reviews about all this on the internet. During our research, we found out how the rip-off works step by step. It all starts with misleading information and fake profiles on the landing page, according to the experience of former users. Later, the fake chat scam will occur. According to the information on the internet, the chance of success is likely to be zero. However, the rates for the use of the site are generally high.
