The online dating portal TrueHotties.com gives a promising first impression. On the landing page, we see erotic content. The website advertises with an image of an attractive woman. Also, this site seems to have a lot of members. On the landing page, we see some profiles. Additionally, the portal claims to have more than a million active members. Of course, that sounds promising. This site claims to have a high number of members who are open-minded. So, it must be as easy as pie to find one casual date after another. Well, this portal has a catch.
Fake profiles for your entertainment
TrueHotties.com advertises with many profile pictures on the landing page. Also, we read about a high number of active members on the homepage. But our research shows that those details are misleading. The website might have more than a million profiles. But all profiles on the site are fake. This website uses fictional profiles, which are controlled by bots or scam users. That is mentioned on the landing page. There we read about computer-generated virtual profiles. That is an alternative to mentioning the use of fictional profiles. It is good that this is shown on the landing page.
However, it might be the only positive aspect to note about this website. We have that point of view because it does not explain the full scale of moderation. All profiles on the site are fake, according to reviews on the internet. Additionally, the purpose of those fictional profiles is to rip off users. It starts right after the registration. Then, a new member will receive many messages which come from bots. This website does not even employ fake chat operators. Here on this site, you will chat with a computer program, which lures you into a trap.
The following is stated in the terms and conditions
Notwithstanding the foregoing, by and throughout your use, access and interactions to and with the Services and related content, You may interact with content generated by, or with the assistance of, automated online accounts (“Bots” or “Automated Profiles”), where none – or substantially none – of the actions and posts of that Automated Profile are the result of, or arise in connection with, a natural person’s profile or otherwise User Content.
Do not purchase a premium-membership
The bots will take the first step in a conversation. They will actively animate new members into a chat, for which costs will occur. The bots will not mention anything about moderation. So, they will not identify as a bot. Also, their fake profiles are not marked as fictional content. In the end, users will assume that the profiles show real people. To reply, costs will occur for a premium-membership. Regarding the experience of former users, it is not only expensive, but also a useless and a cheeky trap. We found many negative reviews about this site on the internet.
The premium-membership will extend automatically, if the user does not terminate it in time. However, that feature does not have to be bad. But the operator of the site makes termination difficult, according to the experience of former users. In general, this site has a poor reputation. Former users complain about fake profiles that are not marked as such. Further criticisms in the reviews on the internet are high costs, and a subscription, which is a cheeky trap. The operator makes cancellation difficult. This website is nothing but a huge scam.
