The member’s page of CasualWales.co.uk allows the user to search by location in the UK. Users can also search for the gender they are looking for, as well as age. The photos on the member’s page are of attractive and seminude women, some of whom are topless. Some photos are blurred since they are so explicit. The user is allowed one flirt on arrival but messaging requires the purchase of coins, which cannot be refunded.
The terms and conditions of the website explain how the site uses self-created entertainment profiles which are moderated and with whom physical contact is impossible. After a review of the website, it is clearly a fake chat scam with a rip-off. Furthermore, the cost for sending messages or photos is very high. A credits package needs to be bought to send messages or photos. The website states that no refunds are possible, although they do state that package purchases are not recurring.
The owner responsible for CasualWales.co.uk and other dating scams is Online Media Solutions BV, based in ’s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands. They operate all their dating websites with a fake chat scam. Users are conned into thinking that the profiles they are interested in have the seminude women that they can talk to. It is all a ruse, for they are actually paid operators who give users false hope my chatting with them. Oblivious users purchase more credits without realizing that they are chatting with a fake profile.
Excerpt from the GTC (as of 09/08/2022)
One of our objectives is to realize online interaction between you and others. This service uses self-created entertainment profiles, these profiles are moderated and therefore no physical agreements are possible.
The use of fake profiles
The use of fake profiles by CasualWales.co.uk is clearly a fake chat rip-off. No one looking for a date wants to knowingly chat with a paid operator who is impersonating an interesting profile. The operator knowingly uses moderated fake profiles to seduce the users into buying more and more credits, which can be very expensive.
Five hundred credits cost 14.50 euros, with the cost of each message costing 1.45 euros. The price goes up to 189.50 euros for 10,000 credits, with each message costing .95 euros. Sending a photo is an additional 15 credits per message. Remember, the owner explicitly states that under no circumstances is the user entitled to a refund of any compensation, amount or paid subscription.
