The online dating platform Insta-Singles.com offers a free registration. On the landing page we do not read any information about costs or fees. So, we could assume that the use of the portal is for free as well. But that is not true, as the operator will charge money later after the registration is done.
Costs will originate for coins that are needed to send messages. A paid dating portal or the fact that the operator advertises with misleading information, is not necessarily a rip-off. But the operator uses fake operators that operate fake profiles to entertain the user.A moderated chat also does not have to be a scam, if the user knows about the chat moderators and can identify a fictional profile. That seems not to be the case on Insta-Singles.com, as on the internet there are many negative reviews that complain about a fake chat scam.
Right after the registration a new member will receive many messages from other members of the site. The messages come from fake operators and their fake profiles. A fake operator will not identify as a fictional person and a fake profile is not marked as such.So, a user gets tricked by misleading information before the registration by the operator. Later, fake operators will do the rest to rip-off the user. A user will pay a lot of money to send messages to a person that is not possible to meet in real life.
The fake 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.”
This site is operated by the NUMBER65 Ltd. which is located in Kent, United Kingdom. The company is responsible for a lot of dating portals that are all a scam with a fake chat.
