Judging by the landing page, AsiaMe.com seems to be a proper dating service. The portal was created for men who have a weakness for Asian women. The photo presented on the landing page shows a Caucasian couple, which is rather misleading. AsiaMe.com also advertises with a large database of active and verified singles. This seems legit at first. But you can find many user reviews about the dating portal on the internet. Thanks to these reviews, we learn about the concept behind AsiaMe.com. The other profiles are not real and are part of a scam.
Seemingly perfect member profiles
We decide to sign up ourselves to get a better impression of what is really going on here. The other profiles in the members’ area seem very suspicious. We find nothing but attractive Asian women with professional profile pictures. It even seems that all of them were taken by the same photographer. It really is impossible to find a member without a high-quality photo. Although there is no evidence for it in the terms and conditions, these profiles are clearly fake.
Newly registered user is bombarded with chat requests from attractive female members. It is easy to start a conversation with the Asian women on here. However, these profiles are not controlled by the beautiful Asian women portrayed in the profile photos. They are managed by fake chat operators who prefer to stay undercover. Chatting is not free. Users are required to buy virtual “credits” and redeem them in the chat to send a message.
The big network of the operator
The fake chat operators flirt with the users to make them pay more money. Users pay even more for using the call service or the video show feature. This is normal for the scam portals run by AML Network Limited, based in Hong Kong. They are all part of the Qpid Network, which also offers a dating app. The negative reviews for this app reveal the rip-off, while the positive reviews seem to be fake.
