ChatNowMeetLater.com claims to be a legit online dating portal. But this site is just a scam. During registration, users must agree that their profile can be shared on a big network. The operator of the network is the company Date4Friend AG. They are based in Zug, in Switzerland. We know this brand very well. In the past, we had some experiences with other sites in this network. The tricks are always the same. It starts with misleading information on the landing page. Free registration is offered, then high costs will occur for a premium-membership that extends automatically.
After the registration, a new member will receive many messages. Usually, that is a sign of fake chat. But there are no fake chat operators employed here. The operator uses a smart alternative. While registering, new members must agree to another feature. First, the profile will be shared on all sites of the network, which includes a few hundred online dating portals. Second, the user must agree that automatic messages can be sent from and to their profile. That explains why new members receive many messages right after registration. In the end, those are fake messages.
The operator’s bad reputation
The fake messages persuade customers to purchase a premium-membership. According to reviews on the internet, a subscription is needed to read and send messages. Also, if a user wants to see the profile pictures in the members´ pool, a paid subscription is needed. However, the subscription extends automatically if the user does not cancel it in time. Here, that is used to rip-off users. The operator of the site makes the termination difficult. Cancellations which are made in time will be ignored or declined without any reason. The expensive subscription is a useless, cheeky scam.
