DateYou.com looks nice at first sight. On the landing page of the online dating portal we see the sign for free registration. Also, on the homepage, we see a selection of profile pictures and some general information. According to those details, this site is a great choice for all singles in the UK who are looking for a casual date.
The community of this portal must be very open-minded. We read about many chats and matches which you can find here in no time. Well, that sounds great. Also, the process of registration will only take a small amount of your precious time. In just a few minutes, you can be an active member of this site.
The operator advertises with misleading information
The online dating portal DateYou.com advertises with a great offer. Sad but true, the advertised offer is mostly based on misleading information. The registration is free but not the use of the site. Also, the operator of the site promises a lot of fun and many matches. But all profiles on this portal are fake and show fictional people. As we all know, it is not possible to meet a fictional person in real-life. Usually, we would call this site a cheeky rip-off with a fake chat.
Just like most of the reviews on the internet mention. But the operator of the site notes on the bottom of the landing page, that this site uses virtual profiles that are used for entertainment. So, on top of the landing page, you will find misleading advertising. On the bottom, there is the note about moderation, which is the only good thing about this site.
No chance to find a real match
It is only fair that the operator has shown this note on the landing page, on the one hand. On the other hand, the note is more hidden than clearly shown. So, we can understand the opinion of the internet community which claims that this site is a fake chat scam. According to the reviews on the web, fake chat operators will get in touch with a new member right after the registration. They will not identify as a fictional person. Plus, a fake profile is not marked as such. The user cannot spot a fictional profile.
As we see it, that makes the moderation a fake chat.
This is the excerpt of the terms and conditions about moderation
MP Mobile Performance uses professional animators and operators for the entertainment of the Users, who are not identified separately in the system. This Service is provided in the highest quality. Real meetings are not possible with these operators. Users can only send them messages within the portal.
The operator of the site claims that the moderators (in this case, they are called animators) who stimulate users into a chat, are there to entertain.
We did some research and found many negative experiences from former customers. They claim that this site is a scam with a fake chat. Indeed, the site uses fake profiles. But, the operator notes that on the landing page. So, the user will have a chance to spot the fake chat before registration. Anyway, here the user will pay a lot of money to have a chat with a fictional profile. According to the reviews, the rates to send messages are quite high. A paid membership is not offered, but the user must purchase coins.
