First, we check the landing page of FlingsAround.com, where the operator brags about the high number of registered users. Apparently, over 3 million people have decided to sign up here. For a dating platform that popular, it is surprisingly difficult to find more than just a few reviews. The ones we could find were all negative. They all point out what is wrong about this platform. The members on FlingsAround.com are not real.
The bad reputation of FlingsAround.com does not really surprise us. The platform is run by Midsummer Online BV, who we know quite well. The company from Deventer in the Netherlands is responsible for several dating platforms which are based on a fake chat scam. All of them claim to have many members, but we certainly do not believe these numbers to be true.
How things are really done here
On FlingsAround.com it is surprisingly easy to find someone to talk with. A lot of beautiful woman and handsome guys can be found in the members’ area. Many people will be interested to flirt with them. After reading the terms and conditions, we know the truth behind these profiles. They are fictive profiles created by the operating company.
The following statement can be found in the terms and conditions
flingsaround.com is the platform for users to chat with fictive profiles. The website, service and content are being provided for entertainment purposes only and are not intended to be used for establishing meetings with other users.
Moderators are the ones “entertaining” the users on FlingsAround.com. They are also known as fake chat moderators since they use fake profiles as a tool to stay undercover. By pretending to be someone they are not, they can flirt with the users without getting recognized as moderators working for the company. In the chat users must redeem virtual “credits” to send messages. If the moderators manipulate the users with success, the operator gains a lot of money. This is the basic principle of every fake chat scam.
