“Cheats”

Written on: 29/04/2019 by McKenzieou106 (1 review written)

This site runs bogus female profiles to keep male customers hooked in, it also manipulated its client list to ensure makes always pay for this service while females don’t. It has now introduced an auto-renewal feature to catch users out, so even though you think your only purchasing a 4 or 6 weeks special access package unless you turn off the auto renewal at the bottom of the page they will keep on charging you . DONT USE THIS SITE… Read Full Review

“Expensive To Many Website Emails”

Written on: 10/04/2019 by wlTaylor1982 (1 review written)

As ever it seems only the males have to pay on this site in the days when equality is supposed to rule then females should equally pay a fee making it fairer and less expensive for Males. The excuse that the site needs to keep its female database high is no excuse . If females wish to be on this site they should be paying too. The site says which females are online and quotes a figure but the listings show the same female nicknames 2 or 3 times on different pages as one scrolls through so the… Read Full Review

“Overloaded with golddiggers”

Written on: 03/04/2019 by IngridLove (1 review written)

Sadly IE has become something of an open season for gold diggers. This time I had several approaches, that became outright requests for money, long before any meetings were arranged or any suggestions of sex. The old stalwarts are still there years later with the same profiles, dreaming about finding mr right. For them it's the last chance before they become the bag lady. The few I met,and didn't continue with, are disasters. Their husbands are wise to have as little as possible to do with… Read Full Review

“Keep a cool head and don't be too choosy”

Written on: 16/12/2018 by Levesque260 (1 review written)

I have used IE and been successful a few times. Usually it's something written in the profile that can spark an interest from a prospective partner. Not necessarily witty or humorous, just a neat way to say something. Women often remark on it. It should only need a few exchanges via IE to get to mobile numbers. If that's not arrived at in a day or so of initial contact, it's very unlikely to progress. It will turn into a pointless email exercise. A date should follow relatively soon after the… Read Full Review

“Money grab via unclear auto renew policy”

Written on: 26/11/2018 by Andyright48 (1 review written)

Shockingly bad claim that they don’t store card details, yet auto renew early at inflated price without warning. To cancel you have to write, every tactic in the book to delay so they can get their hands on your money. Steer clear, loads of dormant profiles pushed at you with no chance of response … Read Full Review

“Expensive but delivers (don't be too picky!)”

Written on: 09/02/2018 by Larsonxb435 (1 review written)

So having read numerous scathing reviews of IE, thought I would offer a small corrective. First thing to say is that many of the complains are justified: it is expensive, and the VKs/messages etc. that tumble into your box as soon as you sign up are almost invariably fakes - that is, they appear to be site-generated even if some of them originate from authentic profiles (I emailed one woman to ask why she had VK'ed me as her profile stipulated a man over 6' tall, and she replied that she hadn't… Read Full Review

“Mixed bag - some obviously fake profiles but good...”

Written on: 17/10/2017

I've read a few reviews of this on here and am surprised. I was a gold plus member for several weeks. I found it to work just as expected. Some women read your profile and just aren't interested, others there's an initial back and forth before one of you drop out, and then others progress. In my first week I met two ladies for "coffee". The first was more attractive in photos, but still a nice normal lady, but we left it after the first *date*. The second I met several times and had fun with… Read Full Review

“AVOID AT ALL COSTS”

Written on: 04/06/2017

Spent a lot of money - and time writing a genuine profile and sending messages to what seemed to be compatible ladies. One played me along with alluring messages, only to try to get me to join (and pay) another dating site. Another didn't live where her profile said and, after a phone call, it turned out she wasn't married. Loads of others started off encouragingly only to suddenly stop. Some sent short messages and sounded suspiciously automated. Result, high expectations, wasted money, wasted… Read Full Review

“It worked for me”

Written on: 20/02/2017 by EllieMar (1 review written)

I have read some bad reviews of this site but as a woman I can say it worked for me. I talked to five lovely men over a period of time, met three for a daytime coffee. The third man was just my type and we have been happily having an affair for some time now. The first two men I met had found affair partners previously on IE but all three were concerned about the lack of genuine women and the number of seemingly fake profiles and offers. As I woman I was overwhelmed by the number of messages… Read Full Review

“Watch out for the auto renewal ”

Written on: 06/02/2017 by Mike11959 (1 review written)

I joined this site a month ago , don't waste your money Guys total waste of time. As one gent pointed out it Seems that the replies may be from the people who run the site but no way of proving it Always strange though that the online counter is normally always saying twice as many men than women Replays always seem to take a couple of days to materialise My membership was coming to an end looked everywhere for a link to cancel it but nothing anywhere So I left it and hid my profile next… Read Full Review

“Illicit Encounters = expensive for men & mainly...”

Written on: 29/12/2016

I've tried this site on several occasions (I'm ashamed to say)and can confirm what others have pointed out which is that the "virtual kisses" and "virtual gifts" which appear as "messages" which can't be read without full paid membership are clearly designed to tempt men into paying. Once hooked, they soon discover that they are mainly worthless and may quite possibly be manufactured by employees of the site ( though I've no evidence of this.) I gave up on the site several years ago and… Read Full Review

“Strange!”

Written on: 28/12/2016

I am a women and have been on the site for a while. Being a women I can afford to be choosy but every man I have been interested in on the site seems to disappear after exchanging a few messages. I get the impression a lot of men on IE are ungenuine and probably fantasise about having an affair but when it becomes a reality maybe they chicken out themselves. You would think if a man gets a response from a women thats a massive result and they would put more effort in to get to know her… Read Full Review

“Jury's out.....”

Written on: 27/10/2016 by Tristin339 (1 review written)

I put a profile on IE in early August but didn't pay to join. After getting 40-50 messages in 2 months I stumped up £119 for a 6 week special membership. I the found at least 25 messages were VK or gifts from women who were miles away, half my age and probably fake. Of the 20+ remaining messages at least half were one liners from clearly fake profiles. I messaged the other 12 or so and got 4 replies. One we swapped a few messages before she went silent and refused to respond anymore. Another… Read Full Review

“Full of fakes”

Written on: 22/09/2016 by Waddell460 (1 review written)

Amazed this site hasn't been shut down by Trading Standards looking at all the reviews here. Take out the ones obviously written by Illicit Encounters staff and it gets a resounding zero. Virtually all the "women" are fake, someone else said on here they are just sitting about in a unit on an industrial estate somewhere, trotting out messages to bring punters on board. Yep, spot on. … Read Full Review

Cellophane's Comment

Written on: 03/11/2016

If you read the address contact on the support page of the site they're not in an industrial estate they're in an office in London.

As a matter of point I was on the site I got a nicely spelled and grammatically correct message from a supposed legal secretary in London. To a further message I sent the reply came back... "My husband him is my room mate" clearly written by another person with a poor grasp of English. I also read 2 profiles one was from a woman in Southend aged 52 then a minute later I read another from a woman in Chelmsford aged 55. Both profiles had the same wording with the sentences in a different order. They really must think we're stupid !!!

“Manipulative”

Written on: 10/08/2016 by Foxgc229 (1 review written)

Free membership - You can upload your pic and fill in your profile. You're inundated with VKs (Virtual Kisses) and messages from women getting in touch with you. You also receive a daily email from IE informing you of matches in your area. That's a shame really as you can't respond to any of them. You also receive messages with special offers and deals on membership fees. Paid membership - You can now finally respond to all those messages that have been gathering in your inbox. In… Read Full Review

“Worked a treat for me!”

Written on: 07/12/2015 by Ramos42 (1 review written)

I registered on this site in June this year and had plenty of messages from men. Most were normal and polite messages and conversations, but of course you have to chose who you interact with. I met five men and all were lovely and had great chemistry with four of them. One date only with three. I dated two simultaneously for three months. And now i've decided to keep it to one man who i've been seeing for five months. We go on fantastic dates. From my experience, the site is for real. It looks… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/10/2015 by Raquel322 (1 review written)

This really is an insult to the intelligence!! Yes you get dozens of messages but they are from some boiler room on an industrial estate trying to drag you along - its not hard to suss out especially when you have somebody from "Manchester,Cumbria" or "Leeds,Lancashire"??Out of about 50 messages I sent out,I managed to meet one woman which is not the best average is it? Once you have paid your £140 your stuck I'm afraid,a complete con!!… Read Full Review
