The site Date.com seems to be a good choice if you are looking for casual dates. Even the name of the platform sounds tempting. Unfortunately, the site is not recommended because it is nothing else than a big rip-off through a moderated chat by paid moderators. From our experience, even the profiles, which can be seen on the well-designed homepage, are fake. They show fictitious people, fantasy profiles and are used for advertising. But it goes even further, also the member area also exclusively of fake profiles.
However, these fake profiles are operated by moderators, who actively encourage new users to join the conversation. Of course, the naïve customer has no idea about the faked chat and that he is talking to a paid moderator instead of the hot woman pictured in the profile. The person managing the fantasy profile is well-trained and lures the newbies into absolute senseless but very expensive conversations. Each interaction with a woman must be paid for. It goes without saying that with those faked profiles, a meeting in real life will be impossible.

Who is the site operator
The information about the platform's operator we can find in the terms and conditions and as well at the bottom of the landing page. We have never encountered the company before but even the operator’s location in Romania is an indication that the site is not entirely reputable. The operator is Balaur Marketing Solutions SRL based in the city of Bucarest in Romania. The scam with faked profiles is always the same, it starts with misleading advertising. After that, moderators do the rest and encourage customers to engage in a paid conversation. With every message sent, the operator's revenues increase.
