The landing page of SexChat-Dating.com presents itself with a modern and attractive design. An artistic picture in black and white portrays a stunning model. It is too big of a temptation to resist, also the creation of the profile is free. Therefore, it looks like there is nothing to lose. The registration takes just a few seconds and it doesn't require any verification. However, a link to confirm the account will be sent to the email address provided.
It is not necessary to click on the link to activate the account, but a user that does that will be rewarded with 150 free credits. Credits are a virtual currency that is used on this and many other dating websites. Instead of buying an all-inclusive monthly subscription, a user has to pay separately for every message. Compared to a paid membership, they have the advantage that they don't include an automatic renewal and therefore a paying member knows exactly how much he will spend. A single message can cost up to £2.
Here is the scam
Right after the registration, a new user will start to receive promising messages from stunning ladies that seem available for hook-ups. Unfortunately, all these communications are fake, because they come from fantasy profiles created by fake chat operators that obviously don't correspond to the person portrayed in the picture.
The goal of these professional animators is to rip off the customer by encouraging them to buy credits and keep the conversation going. Users are given false hope that this will lead to a real-life date. Sadly, this will never happen, and a user will end up spending a real fortune for a mere virtual experience.

A new player in the online dating industry
Dream Media 4U Ltd from Limassol, Cyprus, is the company behind this scam. Since we couldn't find any reviews on the internet yet, we suspect that it is a new operator that has quickly learned how to deceive its subscribers.
