At first sight, CasualDates4You.com seems to be the ideal place to find a casual hook-up. The landing page presents many valid reasons to join the platform. First, the registration is advertised as free. This should be enough to start browsing the member's area and find a suitable partner. Apparently, the innovative search tools allow new users to get in touch with thousands of open-minded people that live in the same city.
The initial page does not mention anything about costs or subscription fees. Therefore, a member is led to think that the whole experience on CasualDates4You.com will be free of charge. But this is just misleading information.
Indeed, the creation of a personal account does not require any form of payment. But right after that, costs will occur. To send a single message, a user must purchase 50 credits, which equals almost £2. Even a quick conversation that lasts no more than a few minutes can quickly turn into a very expensive experience. But this is not even the worst part. It does not matter how much money a user decides to spend on CasualDates4You.com. This will never give him any possibility of meeting his dream girl.
CasualDates4You.com admits using “fantasy profiles” which are controlled by fake chat operators. The language used is purposely ambiguous. Instead of moderators or animators, the Terms and Conditions mention "agents", but the meaning is the same.
The purpose of these agents is to prolong the conversation as much as possible, giving false hopes to the users. By doing so, the victim will be forced to buy more and more credits, thus increasing the profits of the company that employs the agent. In our experience, the consequence of this scam is that the user will never get the chance to arrange a casual date.
The following is stated in the Terms and Conditions
UP is also entitled to assign responsibility for performing its own services or portions thereof to third-party service providers or agents.
It is not the first time they have done it
As already mentioned, United Performance Ltd is the company based in Mahé, in the Seychelles, that runs CasualDates4You.com. This operator is well-known all over the internet for their multiple rip-offs.
