The front page of Canada-Swingers.com makes it seem like this is a fun place where you can meet kinky Canadian singles looking for threesomes and similar sexual practices. Some of the platform’s users are put on display as well. But their profile photos seem oddly familiar. After doing some research, we discover the exact same photos on another dating platform for swingers in Ireland. It seems kind of odd that people from Canada would decide to join a community for swingers in Ireland. That is because these profiles are not genuine. This is a fake chat scam.
For a fake chat scam to be successful, the users are not supposed to find out about the existence of fictive profiles in the members’ area. Often, the only proof for the use of fake profiles can be found in the terms and conditions. In this case, there is a statement in the terms and conditions that might indicate the existence of these profiles.
Excerpt from terms and conditions
By using this Website you acknowledge that any User profiles, messages and communication may not be genuine.
Everything feels familiar
The operator of Canada-Swingers.com is Desdemona Ltd, from Dublin in Ireland. In the past, we have already published reviews for the dating platforms of another operator who is also located in Dublin. Both companies own numerous dating platforms that look exactly alike. They are full of suspicious profiles, which contact every newly registered user right away.
In fact, it does not take long for us to receive a message on this platform as well. Unfortunately, we cannot see what it says. Reading and answering messages necessitates a VIP membership, which is quite expensive. You can create as many profiles as you want, but you will always get the same result. Apparently, the other profiles are fake. They send computer generated messages to advertise for the expensive membership and the benefits that come with it. There could also be fake chat operators hiding behind these profiles to manipulate the users even more.
Is this a subscription rip-off
Although Canada-Swingers.com is a scam, we cannot say for sure that we are dealing with a subscription rip-off as well. According to the operator, you can cancel the VIP membership at any time to stop it from renewing. The lack of user reviews makes it hard to tell whether this is true or not.
