ChatYou.com presents itself with a landing page that doesn’t shine for its originality. This is a bit weird because this platform was launched quite recently. We scanned the internet searching for first-hand experiences from past users, but we couldn’t find any reliable review. It looks like nobody knows ChatYou.com nor its operator, which is Apptex Performance BV.
This company has probably just joined the long list of scammers that make a living by deceiving their customers in the online dating industry. The only thing that we found out is that they are from Geldrop, in The Netherlands.
How does it work?
Creating a profile on ChatYou.com is a simple procedure that takes less than a minute. All you need to provide to gain access to the member’s area is a few personal information and a valid email address. Once you’re signed in, you’ll be immediately able to browse through thousands of profiles of possible matches.
Within five minutes of our registration, our mailbox is already full of enticing messages from hot women willing to chat with us. This is highly suspicious. On an honest dating website, any newcomer has to put in a lot of effort to get some attention. This is even more true for an empty profile like ours that doesn’t have any picture. Therefore, we start to wonder if all these messages are coming from fake accounts. Because of our experience with similar platforms, we know where to look to find evidence of the rip-off.
The following note is from the Terms and Conditions
Apptex uses professional animators and operators for the entertainment of the Users, who are not identified separately in the system. This Service is provided in the highest quality. Real meetings are not possible with these operators. Users can only send them messages within the portal.
An expensive fake chat
ChatYou.com admits to employing professional moderators to create and manage fictional profiles. Despite the fact that they inform users about the fake chat, this is still a scam because these accounts are not marked as fictitious. Anybody on ChatYou.com could be a fantasy character. Therefore, we strongly advise you not to trust anybody.
To be able to send messages, a member has to purchase the so-called “credits”. These are virtual items that can be spent on several paid services. Every message requires 50 credits, which equals roughly $2.
