Once we arrived at the landing page of MysteriousChats.co.uk, it could have looked more encouraging. There is only one photo of a woman on the page. Even though she is not wearing a lot, it does not say much about the site. The site claims to have many members. Four million, to be exact. When most people see that, many will think, wow, this site must be impressive.
The operator does not mention anything about being free to sign up, or to use, which is unusual. However, it does claim that all users will have unlimited access. Therefore, you can do anything, without worrying about any restrictions. But from our own experience, this is not true.
The operator, Midsummer Online BV, based in The Netherlands, is very famous on the internet, for using fictitious profiles. There are more fake profiles than real ones, on this site. The profiles are used by fake chat operators, who send fake messages to the real users on the site. Once you arrive at the site, there is a pop-up. This mentions that the site uses "fictitious" profiles.
The fake profiles are all marked with a heart icon. This is to clearly show users that they are talking with a fake chat operator. Once you arrive at the members' area, you will be instantly hit with lots of messages, which clearly show a fake chat scam. You can never physically meet these people you are talking to, as they are all fake.
The following is found in the Terms and Conditions
5.2. mysteriouschats.co.uk has entertainment as its goal, it is explicitly not the purpose of mysteriouschats.co.uk to establish dates or meetings in person.
5.3. Midsummer Online B.V. explicitly reserves the right to send calls on mysteriouschats.co.uk through self-created profiles. These are fictitious profiles with which no physical agreements are possible.
All is good on this site, until you begin to message. You can look at profile pictures and read messages, but you cannot send messages. If you want to message, you must buy credits. Otherwise, you will not be talking to anyone, whether fake or real. Credits to send messages will cost anything from £6.00, to £300, which seems like a rip-off, considering you will talk to a fake chat operator.
