AdultFlirtFinders.com claims to be one of the top dating sites in Ireland. This sounds promising, but the information given on the landing page is insufficient. We decide to do some additional research and take our previous experience with Notify Direct Marketing BV into account. This company headquartered in Krimpen aan den IJssel, in the Netherlands, runs several scam dating sites. Because we do not find any reviews for this Dutch operator, we assume that not too many people have fallen for this fake chat scam.
Expensive conversations with fake people
Using this site to find a date can be quite an expensive experience. Before you can send a message to another member, you must buy credits. The more credits you purchase at once, the less you pay per credit. If you decide to buy a package of 10 credits, you pay 1.60 euros per message. Even if all the members on here were legit, the price for chatting would still be way too high.
By implementing a moderated service, this Dutch operator makes sure that the real users enjoy their time chatting with others. The many fake members in the members’ area are a well-kept secret. The operator points out that the fictive profiles are marked with a heart icon. But this explanation is placed in the terms and conditions, which are ignored by most users.
We are referring to the following statement
3.1. adultflirtfinders.com has the goal of allowing users to flirt, adultflirtfinders.com is the platform for users to chat with fictive profiles. The website, service and content are being provided for entertainment purposes only and are not intended to be used for establishing meetings with other users. Profiles marked with a heart icon are fictive profiles with which physical contact is not possible.
Why this site is a cheeky rip-off
The fictive profiles appear to be real members. We are not sure if they are controlled by fake chat operators or by bots which send template messages to initiate conversations. They are used to entice the users to chat a lot. This means that users spend more money on the site. This is basically how every fake chat scam works.
