When in doubt, always assume anything that says free but requires a credit card is a scam.
Nonetheless, there are some semi-legitimate scenarios where giving your credit card information is the right thing to do.
Put away that credit card because Matchopolis is not only completely free, there are no membership "upgrades" required to get the most out of the site.
That’s why you won’t see Match Com, Plentyof Fish, or Zoosk on the list below of free dating websites, even though their sales reps and online marketing division would protest vehemently that anyone can fill out a free profile, that no credit card is required, and credit checks are not performed for new members.
Or perhaps love in Beautiful BC, that cute single in Alberta, or online dates in Ontario?
The truth is, we have great single men and women in all sorts of places.
This can easily be found by checking on-line for the site's owner and place of business, and can be further verified by checking the person's IP address.
In one instance I traced the IP address to a mobile server in someone's vehicle- a countermeasure to being tracked down and arrested.
All you have to do to access these sites is provide your credit card information so that they may charge you at some point for your 100% free services.
