On the landing page of ChatMyFlirt.com, we are encouraged to join for free and to learn more about the dating service. It is obvious that they do not want anyone to conduct further research online before signing up. We decided not to simply trust the operator, but to read the reviews we could find online. After doing so, we realized that ChatMyFlirt.com is a fake chat scam. We do not just rely on user reviews. In the terms and conditions, the operator admits the usage of fictitious profiles as well.
The first clue that indicates the scam is the name of the company, which can be found in the imprint. Meteor Interactive B.V. manages ChatMyFlirt.com. The company is based in Utrecht, in the Netherlands. We know several dating sites that belong to this company. All of them are just rip-offs.
The operator mentions fictitious profiles in the terms and conditions
“You also understand that this is a fantasy entertainment Service and that (i) the profiles are fictional and your interactions will be with operators;”
The fake profiles are marked with a heart icon. However, this is not of much help to the users. The heart icon itself is not understood by most. On a dating site it does not really stand out to begin with. The operator does not intend to make the existence of fake profiles visible and known. The more people who do not know about it, the more money can be made.
Fake chat operators manage the fake profiles. It is their job to use these profiles to engage in a conversation with as many real users as possible. Users must invest money on ChatMyFlirt.com if they want to make use of the features.
Before being able to use the chat, users are required to buy credits. For every message they send in the chat, they lose some of their credits. On ChatMyFlirt.com you can buy credit bundles. The bigger the bundle is, the more of a discount you get. No matter how many credits you buy at once, a message in the chat always costs at least a dollar. This makes it easy for the fake operators to generate a decent amount of money for the operating company.
