The landing page of RandyFlings.com looks good. We see some erotic content and some information about the portal and its service. We read that the registration is for free and that you can find satisfaction here. The website also advertises some profile pictures.
The first impression is okay, but after we did some research, our feeling went from okay to very bad. This website advertises with wrong and irritating information only. The registration is for free, but to send messages, a user has to pay a lot of money. Plus, the portal advertises with a large member’s pool, but it turns out that all profiles are fake.
This website is a rip off with fake chats and is operated by a well-known company which is in Deventer, in the Netherlands. The Midsummer Online B.V. is famous on the internet for its many dating websites. RandyFlings.com is just one out of many, and the scam always works in the same way.
After the registration, a new member will receive a lot of messages from other users. Of course, a new user will assume that all profiles in the member’s pool show real people. But they do not. The profile shows a fictitious person with which physical contact is not possible.
The fake chat is mentioned in the terms and conditions
"5.3 Midsummer Online B.V. explicitly reserves the right to send calls on RandyFlings.com through self-created profiles. These are fictitious profiles with which no physical agreements are possible."
Fake operators operate those fake profiles. They will start a conversation, but they will not identify themselves as a fictional person. Their fake profiles are also not marked as such. In a nutshell, the user gets tricked by wrong information on the landing page and later while having an expensive chat with a fake operator. The costs originate via so-called credits. A new member will have to buy the credits first to be able to send messages.
