The online dating portal DatingDogging.com has a solid first appearance. We see some erotic content on the landing page. Additionally, we read about the site’s target group and its offer. But our research shows that all the information provided is misleading and wrong. After registration, costs will develop for a subscription for a premium membership. Plus, it is not possible to meet real singles here. According to reviews on the internet, this site is full of fake profiles. A fake profile shows a fictitious person, with whom a date in real life is not possible.
We found proof of the use of fake chat in the legal information. But the operator does not call fake chat by its name. Moderation is not stated. Instead, the site operator mentions the purpose of entertainment, which stands for a moderated chat. This site is a scam. In general, a dating site is not for entertainment. On this platform, users will be entertained virtually. Fake profiles are noted in a sneaky way as well. The operator admits that not all content on the site is real. Therefore, some content must be fake.
The following is stated in the terms and conditions
The Website is an entertainment service and you agree to use the Website and Service at your own risk. Your safety and security are very important. You acknowledge and agree that you will use common sense and caution before sharing personally identifiable information with other Users of the Website as you would on other websites and offline.
The Company DOES NOT CONDUCT CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS ON ITS USERS NOR DOES IT SCREEN OR ATTEMPT TO VERIFY THE STATEMENTS OF ITS USERS FOR ACCURACY.
Background checks are not always accurate as people can submit false information, or that information may be no longer up to date, not all criminal records are available online. By using this Website you acknowledge that any User profiles, messages and communication may not be genuine. You also agree to take reasonable care and caution when interacting with other Users of the Website or Service.
The goal of moderation
We are not sure if fake chat operators control these fake profiles. It might be that chatbots are used as a cheaper replacement. But the goal remains the same, and it is not the purpose of entertainment. If entertainment were the true goal, users would know about it. According to reviews, that is not the case. Former customers had a bad experience while using this site and call it a rip-off. They explain that many messages reach the virtual post box. These messages come from fake profiles. But they do not contain a hint of moderation.
The goal is to lure new members into a trap. Users need a premium membership to chat. All subscriptions renew automatically and are difficult to cancel. The site operator makes the process of termination difficult. So, the operating company makes sure that users will miss their deadlines. This site is operated by Desdemona Ltd, which is based in Dublin, in Ireland.
