Findings from our investigation
We investigated the site by creating an empty profile and using it for a period of time. We also took into consideration the personal experiences of people who used the services of Twoo.com, and we took the time to carefully read all documents that you agree to when initially signing up to the service.
1) People Complained About Messages
These weren’t just any messages. Twoo.com was reportedly sending email messages to every contact in the email list of their members (from the email address used to sign up). That includes your family, boss and colleagues, and a bunch of people you may have only exchanged an email or two with. While these messages did not originate from you and you have not approved the site to be sending notifications and invitations to your contacts, the messages look like you sent them. The people who receive those messages may not be aware that the content is completely made up and computer automated, which creates additional troubles and headaches.
2) Twoo.com Uses Computer-Generated Messages
And no, messages are not only sent from you to your email contacts, but you too get contacted through the site. Basically, by creating a profile on Twoo.com, you automatically agree to the terms and conditions of use and, thus Twoo.com gets to legally send “promotional messages” to you. The problem is that they generate messages which are designed to resemble normal, human communication and look like another site member is contacting you. Also, there is no way you can whether you are being contacted by a real person interested in communicating, or if it’s just another computer-automated message. Here is an excerpt we found in the Twoo.com terms of service:
3) Use And Distribution Of Your Posted Data
We suspect that not notifying members additionally about such an important matter and just hiding it in pages upon pages of text is a sign of a scam. Who would go through such trouble to make some information hidden if there is nothing to hide? It is possible that your replicated profiles are used as “ghost profiles” on other websites with the purpose to fill up the site with more members – even if they aren’t real.
4) Twoo.com Paid Membership
Twoo.com offers you different payment options: 1. being a direct membership upgrade for a selected period of time and 2. to buy additional credit points to make extra features available. If you’d like to access the Twoo mobile app, keep in mind that the download will cost you additionally.
There are different In-App options and prices ranging for a pack of credits are displayed here:
- $2.99 for 1 credit
- $11.99 for 5 credits
- $17.99 for 10 credits
- $29.99 for 20 credits
The membership upgrade prices are:
- $3.95 for a weekly subscription to the service
- $9.99 for a monthly subscription to the service
- $24.99 for 3 months of subscription to the service
- $39.99 for 6 months of subscription to the service
- $69.99 for 12 months of subscription to the service
*NOTE that once you provide Twoo.com with your credit card info and choose to pay and subscribe for only a certain period of time, you will be automatically charged again and again at the end of your current period. This is not mentioned anywhere on the site despite for the terms and conditions of use. So, if you are not aware that your membership account gets automatically renewed months after months, it is a rip off. And, it may be too late before you realize that you were continuously charged money off your credit card. You can, however, cancel your paid membership to prevent being overcharged, but you need to do it at least 24 hours before the end of your initial subscription period.
5) Ghost Profiles Use
Do you wonder who is behind your dating profile posted on other sites? If it’s not you, then it’s either the computer software or paid employees of the service. We have witnessed that most of dating sites on the internet use other people’s personal data to increase the number of members on the site and use these profiles to send automated messages. The point is to make each site appear full of potential dates and the scam happens when you are sent communications through these replicated profiles. You are, however, unable to reply to any of these communications unless you upgrade your basic membership to a paid membership. Twoo.com seems less and less as a genuine online matchmaking service, and more like an online dating scam that only wants to take your money and not give anything in return.
