The landing page of Elegrante.com looks truly elegant. We like the design as well as the professional photo of a couple that can be seen in the background. However, you should always be alarmed if you are visiting a landing page that does not reveal anything about the usage of the dating website. Our research becomes a lot easier when we find out who is responsible for Elegrante.com.
NUMBER65 Ltd. runs a big network of dating websites and most of the time members have had a bad experience in the past. If you know one of them, you pretty much already know how the others as well. We cannot say anything positive about this company and judging by the negative reviews, neither can many users. The main reason for our complaint is the fact that the company makes use of moderated chat to get money.
The moderated chat is mentioned in the terms and conditions
The website uses support staff to monitor and moderate the chat system, leading to chat dialogues and conversations with the users.
The rip-off works like this
On Elegrante.com you can buy coins to pay for certain options. What is not mentioned on the landing page, is the fact that sending messages also costs you coins. You do not just pay once to unlock the chat function. You pay for every single message you intend to send. This means that several interesting conversations with other members can lead to expensive bills in no time. On this dating website you are almost guaranteed to have several conversations, and the operator is responsible for encouraging them.
The fake chat operators are extremely productive for the operator. They are staff members but pretend to be real users, mostly attractive women. They lie about themselves and flirt with the users to make them send more messages. Elegrante.com is a fake chat scam because the users are not informed well enough about who they are talking with.
