The online dating website Charmerly.com looks very promising. It has a simple layout and no images with explicit sexual content. We investigate a little more. Once you sign in for free, you will not be able to start chatting with any user. To talk to them, you must pay for each message you send, with what the website refers to as "credits". You also have the option of sending gifts to these users or even letters. You will pay for these in the same way.
Profiles that send predesigned messages
Everything looks very nice and almost perfect, but it is not. All the money you spend on each message, each gift, or each letter, does not ensure that you can have a real date with the person you chat with. The messages they receive are predesigned. The dating website Charmerly.com uses fake profiles, run by fake chat operators and company employees who scam users into giving them gifts.
This is how they scam new members. The site mentions this in terms and conditions, but they do not indicate it clearly. So, the new member falls into the trap. This is a fake chat rip-off.
Here is the excerpt from the terms and conditions
We may allow our Trusted Members to choose to send the same messages ("Icebreakers") to a number of other Members, who are randomly selected in order to allocate the attention and activity among Members of the Service.
We decided to look into former member reviews as well. The results were shocking. They all talk about their bad experiences. They say they felt scammed and claim to have spent their money on gifts and messages to talk to fictitious people. Furthermore, they are sure this website is a big rip-off.
Operator with a bad reputation
The company that operates this online dating website is Charmerly, headquartered in Limassol, Cyprus. This company has negative reviews from its customers. They are known for their bad reputation and for managing dozens of websites. All of them turned out to be fake chat rip-offs.
