Qpid Network is an operator based in Hong Kong running a good number of dating websites. Our experience is that most of these platforms are a rip-off. In our review of ColombiaLady.com, we also found out that this was no exception. The page is filled with fake profiles, and finding a date here is an impossible mission.
Although we have written several reviews about platforms run by this company, we have never found any written evidence of a fake chat scam. The operator does not mention anything about fictitious profiles or moderation in the terms and conditions. Nevertheless, while looking for information about this company on the internet, we have come across some negative reviews from former users. Most of them mention the same problems. The former customers complained that they spent a lot of money chatting with fake chat operators or system bots and that they could not find any real users.
Suspicious messages from attractive women
Immediately after registering, we received a large amount of messages and invitations to chat. This is a clear sign of a fake chat rip-off. Even though our profile was still empty, and we did not advertise any information about ourselves, the number of messages was overwhelming. And all of them came from very attractive women. Highly suspicious.
Expensive and useless credits
As expected, to answer these messages, we were asked to buy credits in advance. But they are quite expensive. The cost of 1 credit is approximately 2 USD, and it will allow us to send just one photo or to chat for 5 minutes. Furthermore, when we realize that we will be interacting with a fake profile, it is evident that the platform is nothing but a complete rip-off.
Fortunately, payments here are non-recurrent, and users do not need a subscription to use the page. Therefore, we should not worry about a subscription rip-off. Still, for everything else, the page is just a scam and is not worth our time or our money.
