LoveAndSeek.com is an online dating websites aimed at Christian singles that are looking for friends, romance and/or marriage in their area. LoveAndSeek.com promises to match and bring together people with the same values and love for Christ. But is this true or will this dating platform deceive you?
We investigated this website for a period of time and found things that do not seem genuine and right. In the following text we will present to you our findings and evidence that back up our suspicions. So, continue reading to learn the truth.
Scamming actions on LoveAndSeek.com
LoveAndSeek.com is owned and run by a company called People Media, Inc., which also owns and runs BlackPeopleMeet.com, OurTime.com, SingleParentMeet.com, SeniorPeopleMeet.com and there are other dating sites that we have not reviewed yet. In the site’s terms and conditions of use we found the needed evidence to prove that LoveAndSeek.com works to con and rip-off naive members.
1) LoveAndSeek.com Reuses Your Profile Data
PROOF OF SCAM: “By posting Content on the Website or as part of the Service, you automatically grant, and you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant, to the Company, its affiliates, licensees and successors, an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, fully paid-up, worldwide right and license to (i) use, copy, store, perform, display, reproduce, record, play, adapt, modify and distribute such Content, (ii) prepare derivative works of, or incorporate into other works, such Content, and (iii) grant and authorize sublicenses of the foregoing in any media now known or hereafter created.”
2) Electronic Communications
LoveAndSeek.com uses computer-automated messages, sent to you by computer software. This means that no one is actually sending you emails and no one is interacting with you, but these messages are only a marketing tool used by the site to get you engaged in their services. The computer-automated messages will be sent to you at different periods of the day, and they will be coming from fabricated profiles (not real site members).
PROOF OF SCAM: “When you become a Member, you agree and consent to receive email messages from us. These emails may be transactional or relationship communications relating to the Service, such as administrative notices and service announcements or changes, or emails containing commercial offers, promotions or special offers from us.”
3) Fabricated Test Profiles
LoveAndSeek.com dating profiles which are used to send you email and chat messages are fabricated and created by the owner company. Those profiles are created using the profile information the Company has acquired from other users who once posted on the site – just like you post yours when creating your account. These profiles contain images, data, names, etc. which originally belong to other people and are taken from other dating sites and networks.
PROOF OF SCAM: “From time to time, employees of the Company (or its parent or affiliated companies) may create test dating profiles for the purpose of testing the functionality of our Service and website processes to improve service quality for our Members.”
4) LoveAndSeek.com Recurring Membership Fees
LoveAndSeek.com services are not free and you will be charged big time to be able to use the site. Actually, whenever you try to interact in any way with other site members you are extorted to upgrade to a paid membership. Moreover, if you subscribe for a one-time membership for the duration of, for example, one month – your subscription will be automatically renewed for months and months until you realize what is happening and cancel your paid membership. Of course, you are not notified for any of these monthly charges and renewals. Here is how much you will be charged based on the subscription period you choose:
- $14.99 to purchase 1 month of membership (automatically recurring)
- $35.97 to purchase 3 months of membership (automatically recurring)
- $62.94 to purchase 6 months of membership (automatically recurring)
PROOF OF SCAM: “Your subscription will continue indefinitely until cancelled by you. After your initial subscription commitment period, and again after any subsequent subscription period, your subscription will automatically continue for an additional equivalent period, at the price you agreed to when subscribing. You agree that your account will be subject to this automatic renewal feature.”
The verdict on LoveAndSeek.com
LoveAndSeek.com is hiding under the mask of a Christian and honest online dating site, when in fact, it is associated with other scamming dating sites run by the same company. The same scamming techniques are used on LoveAndSeek.com too in order to double-cross and rip off naive people. We advise you to always pay close attention and never give your credit card information to a dating site without reading the terms and conditions of use first.
