OnlineQuickie.com offers a lot of good things. We read about free registration and we see a few profile pictures. Also, we read the information that we will get unlimited access to the site. Well, that is what we expect when we register on a portal. However, besides this strange piece of information, the advertising on the site is misleading. The registration is free, but after that high costs will occur for the use of the site. A user must purchase “credits” which are needed to send messages. Well, irritating advertisement is not a scam. But there is more.
The profiles in the members´ pool are fake and show fictional people. That is mentioned at the bottom of the landing page. It is fair of the operator to provide this information. So, some people might spot this information and will not register. But this information is quite hidden. Also, it does not explain the full scale of the fake chat which users have to face here. All profiles are fake and are controlled by fake chat operators. They will stimulate users into a chat, but they will not inform the user about moderation. So, it is a scam.
We found the following statement in the terms and conditions
5.3 Notify Direct Marketing B.V. explicitly reserves the right to send calls on onlinequickie.com through self-created profiles. These are fictitious profiles with which no physical agreements are possible.
Chat with your fictional dream partner
The fake chat operators will not identify as a fictional person. The fake profiles are marked with a heart-icon. It might seem that operator wants to inform the user about fake profiles. But according to the reviews by former users, all profiles have this heart icon. Also, the icon itself does not contain any information. So, you must read the terms and conditions to know the meaning. Then, you would also spot the statement about the fake chat. The operator of the site is Notify Direct Marketing BV who are based in Krimpen aan den Ijssel, in Holland.
