The online dating website LocalBooties.com looks great. Our first impression of the site is that this portal will offer best chances to find a match. On the landing page, we see many profile pictures and a number that shows members who are currently online. According to that information, more than two million people are registered here, and more than 30,000 users are currently online. That sounds more than promising.
To become an active user of the site as well, registration must be done first. The registration is free and will take only a few minutes. Everything looks great. But there is a note on the landing page that we do not like.
This portal uses fictional profiles
LocalBooties.com looks great. On the homepage, we read about free registration and the large members´ pool. But the operator of the site shows a note on the homepage, that we do not appreciate. Under the screen for registration, we read about fictional profiles and computer-generated virtual profiles. So, the profiles on the site are a fake. That means also, that the number of users that is advertised, is not true.
This portal does not have more than two million registered members. If this portal has more than two million profiles, then they are all a fake. Usually, we would claim that this site is a rip-off with a fake chat. But, it is fair of the operator to show this note before registration. However, it does not change the fact that the chance to find a match is still zero. Plus, if people do not read the note, they felt scammed anyway.
High costs for adult entertainment service
During our research, we read many reviews by former customers. They describe this site is a scam with a fake chat. The profiles on the portal show fictional people with whom a date is impossible. According to the experience of former users, it starts right after the registration. A new member will receive many messages from other profiles. But the profiles do not show a mark that it is a fictional profile. Also, the messages to not mention that the profile is a computer-generated virtual profile. In the terms and conditions, we found the detailed explanation about moderation.
The excerpt from the terms and conditions
You may interact with content generated by, or with the assistance of, automated online accounts (“Bots” or “Automated Profiles”), where none – or substantially none – of the actions and posts of that Automated Profile are the result of, or arise in connection with, a natural person’s profile or otherwise User Content.
The computer-generated virtual profiles will stimulate new users into a chat for which costs will occur. So, this site is completely moderated without any chance to realize a date.
To read or to send messages, costs will occur for a paid membership. The subscription for the premium-membership will extend automatically, according to the reviews by former users. Because of that, some people felt trapped in a subscription rip-off. In general, the reputation of the site and its operator is bad. Also, we found many negative reviews about the company that runs this site.
