The online dating portal AmericanFlings.com seems to be legit and trustworthy on the first impression. The site offers free registration. They promise to be a good place to find thousands of local singles, who are looking for their perfect match and exciting fun. But we take a closer look into the footer of the landing page. We quickly find out that it is highly unlikely that you can meet real people on this website. The terms and conditions confirm without any doubt that it is not worth it to register here.
We took the following excerpt from the terms and conditions
“You also understand that this is a fantasy entertainment Service and that the (i) profiles are fictional and your interactions will be with operators;”
Expensive chat with fictional people
Even though the website is advertised as free on the landing page, it turns out not to be. Only the registration is free, but all features, including the chat, cost a lot of money. To be able to send messages, users must purchase credits. Depending on which credit-bundle the user chooses to buy, each sent message costs between $1 and $1.5. Additionally, users can purchase premium-memberships, which enable them to access all features of the site.
The website is a fantasy entertainment service, as we learned from the terms and conditions. So, it seems to be quite pointless to spend any money in the chat. After all, it is not possible to find real people for real-life dates on this website. New users are insufficiently informed about the fact that they are only interacting with fake profiles, which are operated by controllers. Therefore, AmericanFlings.com must be considered a rip-off.
The Operator is known for fake chat scams
The operator of AmericanFlings.com is Meteor Interactive B.V., which is based in Utrecht, in the Netherlands. We have already tested some other websites operated by this company, all of which turned out to be fake chat scams. Therefore, we cannot recommend anyone to register here, or on any other of their online dating websites.
