The online dating portal UKFlirts.co.uk appears to be a solid choice. On the landing page, we read about free registration and that it is possible to find flirts here. Well, you certainly will meet a lot of interesting people on this website. However, all your matches will be fictitious. This website is a rip-off with fake chat. The profiles on the site are fake. The experience of former members suggests all profiles are fake. One problem with this website is that fake profiles are not specially marked. So users cannot identify fictitious profiles by themselves while using the website.
Before we explain more about the operator’s cheeky tricks, we have to mention one positive aspect of this site. The use of fictitious profiles is admitted on the landing page. But the relevant notification is well-hidden. It is concealed inside the actual button on the screen. Moreover, it doesn’t go far enough. It doesn’t make it clear that every single profile is fake. Nor is moderation even mentioned. Only the “purpose of entertainment” is referred to. And this of course does not explain things fully and properly.
As we see it, this website remains a scam with fake chat. Reviews on the internet agree with our view here.
The following extract is from the site’s terms and conditions
6.4 This Website or Service is for adult entertainment purposes; it is not our aim to bring physical appointments/contact between members. User is aware and agrees that we may use moderated and fictive profiles for online adult entertainment purposes. Festivus Media BV expressly reserves the right to send messages to this site by self-created profiles. Physical contact with these fictive profiles is not possible. Festivus Media BV denies itselves of all liability to the extent that is allowed by the law and assumes no warranty for any kind of damage or inconvenience caused by the Service.
No real members
The scam starts right after registration is completed. A new member then receives a lot of attention. This attention comes in the form of messages, likes and notifications. All these activities are generated by fake chat operators who try to encourage new members to chat. Their goal is to increase the income of the operator. Costs will develop for credits needed to send messages. On this site a user pays to be entertained. Their ‘entertainment’ is limited to online experience. Real dates are, according to reviews from former customers, just not possible.
Incidentally, former users also complain about excessively high costs. The website operator is Festivus Media BV, which is based in ’s-Gravenhage in the Netherlands. This company is well-known for its scam network.
