The online dating website SecretMatchClub.com seems to be a great choice on the first view. In general, the offer sounds great. But we did some research because there is not much information provided on the landing page. During our research we found many negative reports about this site. Moreover, the operator of the portal is well-known. This site is operated by Wakefield Web Activities B.V. which is located in Deventer, Netherlands. This company has a terrible reputation on the internet.
There are quite a lot of reports about the operator. On the internet there are many negative reviews from former customers. All users had the same experience of a fake chat. Regarding that information, the members´ pool is filled with fake profiles. A fake profile is managed by a fake operator who entices the user to a chat.
Not one real person is to find here
The fake operators will get in touch with a new member right after the registration. A fake operator will not identify as a fictitious person. Moreover, former customers mentioned that they had no idea about the fake chat. A fake profile is not clearly marked as such. It is not clear that it shows a fictitious person with whom a date is impossible.
In the terms and conditions, we read the information that a fake profile is marked with a heart symbol. First, all profiles have this heart symbol. Second, the heart symbol does not show any information. To find out more about the heart symbol, it is necessary to read the terms and conditions.
In the terms and conditions, we found the proof about the fake chat scam
““5.2 SecretMatchClub.com has entertainment as its goal, it is explicitly not the purpose of SecretMatchClub.com to establish dates or meetings in person.
5.3 Wakefield Web Activities B.V. explicitly reserves the right to send calls on SecretMatchClub.com through self-created profiles. These are fictitious profiles with which no physical agreements are possible.”
On SecretMatchClub.com a user will pay money for a chat with a fictitious person. Costs will originate for credits which are needed to send messages
