We get a first impression of IrishLocals.com by looking at the landing page. After the free registration, you can get in touch with interesting and discrete members. The operator gives many more reasons to join the dating site. One of them is the possibility to send virtual gifts to any member. Sending gifts is a function that also costs money, just like sending messages in the chat. The operator makes sure the users spend a lot of money. Everything on the landing page sounds promising, until you notice the fine print at the bottom.
Here is the excerpt
the price per message varies from € 1,25 to a maximum of € 1,67.
This statement is hard to miss, but many people will only find out about the cost of chatting after signing up. Sending a message costs more than a Euro. The entertaining conversations can even get you into financial trouble. The operator knows how to successfully rip-off the users. Another statement in the terms and conditions already indicates how the rip-off works.
We are referring to the following statement
4.1.3 You acknowledge that the profiles on the Website are fictitious and they have been created only to exchange messages with users and therefore real-life meetings with these fictitious profiles are therefore not possible.
Thanks to fake profiles, the fake chat operators can act as regular members without having to reveal who they really are. As a user it is delightful to see how many seemingly real members are interested in a flirt. If the users do not find out about the actual identity of the other members, the fake chat operators can easily rip them off.
IrishLocals.com is operated by CH-Tel communication AG. This is not our first experience with this operator from Baar, in Switzerland. ClubLov.com turned out to be a rip-off that works exactly like this one. During our research, we cannot find any reviews for this site. We hope that not many users have fallen victim to the scam of IrishLocals.com.
