The online dating website ChattyLocals.com advertises with erotic promises on the landing page. There we read about hot singles and the chance to have a chat with them. We did some research and found out that it is not possible to do more. The profiles on this site are fictional. That means that this dating portal is nothing but a fake chat and a rip-off. The good thing is that the operator of the site mentions fictional profiles already on the landing page of the platform. There we read about fictional profiles with whom dates in real life are not possible. Visitors to the site should read the terms and conditions. In the terms and conditions, the operator explains the fake chat more specifically. There we read about the one and only purpose of the moderated chat. It is to increase the income of the operator.
The profiles are fake and operated
This site is operated by Midsummer Online B.V. which is located in Deventer, the Netherlands. The operator is well-known to us and on the internet. We found many negative reports about the company and its dating websites. It turns out that all their sites are a cheeky rip-off with a fake chat. The profiles on the network are fake and they are controlled by operators. An operator manages more than one fake profile which all seem to be marked with a heart icon. But, the heart icon does not explain what it means. For that, it is necessary to read the terms and conditions. So, the icon itself does not make anything better.
Also, because of that, the operators will not identify as a fictional person at the beginning of a chat. In the end, the user of the site does not know about the fake chat and the use of fictional profiles.
The excerpt from the terms and conditions about the fake chat
"5.2 ChattyLocals.com has entertainment as its goal, it is explicitly not the purpose of ChattyLocals.com to establish dates or meetings in person."
"5.3 Midsummer Online B.V. explicitly reserves the right to send calls on ChattyLocals.com through self-created profiles. These are fictitious profiles with which no physical agreements are possible."
